Check the point on the tank (Bucket) where the hose connects to. Make sure there is no obstruction at the outlet of the bucket to the hose connection. Next make sure the hose has no kinks or no loops that may trap air to the drain. If necessary for a long run to the place of drainage raise the dehumidifier to a higher level for better drainage.

SOURCE: My Danby dehumidifier leaks out

The drain tube or hole that drains into the bucket is probably clogged.

Turn the unit OFF and remove the bucket. Look in the cavity where the bucket was removed for a drain tube or drain hole. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (No wire coat hangers) , that's appropriately sized to fit in the hole. Carefully feed the ZIP Tie into the hole or tube and thread it as far as you can. At some point the drain will curve, but you have to carefully get past this point. Once the Zip Tie has reached as far as it can, slowly pull it out while rotating it. This will loosen the clog. Once you have it half way out, be prepared for water to follow. This method should solve the problem.

Does not shut off when tank full, water leaks all over the floor if I don't watch it constantly


Sounds like the float valve inside tank may be stuck in closed position. Calcium buildup is very common. Good luck Juliana. Unplug and empty tank of any water and look for the float valve it should be near top of tank. Use a small bucket and mix vinegar and water and brush. Scrub that valve. Clean it up

Hi I have problems with my mitsubishi dehumidifier Oasis Elite MJ-E-142NX-A1 The water tank full light stays on even though the tank is empty. I have emptied the water and replaced the container care


Sounds like your float is stuck in the full position, or the sensor that shows full is stuck on full.
If tank is empty but shows full, problem lies where full signal is coming from.

Full light is on and won't turn off


There is a float in the back, make sure it is dropping all the way. If the rear tank isn't fully inserted it will also prevent the full indicator from resetting. Occasionally hard water deposits will build up, and it's usually just a matter of cycling the float up and down by hand a few times till it loosens up.

Full light stays on always


Don't know your model specifically, but most dehumidifiers have a float that shuts the system down when the tank is full. Maybe the float is not going up and down like it should. With the power off and the tank out, see if the float is descending like it should when the tank is out. Popping it up and down a few times might solve the problem.

Where is the float


Don't know your model specifically, but the float is usually at the top of your water tank and activates the system to shut down by popping up when the tank is full. With some tanks you can actually reach in and sort of clean off the float. Jelly-like stuff can build up on the float after a number of years. Cleaning it off wouldn't hurt.

See previous answer. If new, contact supplier to replace float switch. Are you sure it's not just a fan staying on with the tank out?

My dehumidifier will not shut off when the tank is full and we get a problem with the water in the floor


Check the float valve switch in the top of the tank (if your model so equipped) it may be stuck in the DOWN position and can't float up and turn the unit OFF, when necessary.

Hope this helped. Thanks fr choosing FixYa.

The red indicator light just flashes when i turn the unit on. Whats wrong?


Hello,

The tank may be full. Your dehumidifier has a safety device that turns off the dehumidifier when the water tank is full. Usually the tank itself either presses against a switch or there's a device connected to the tank that triggers a switch when the tank is in place and full.

If you've emptied the tank and the unit doesn't run, inspect the place where the tank rests to see if there's a switch or mechanism that's not being activated. You may be able to turn it on with a simple flick of your finger.

Good luck.

Attached a pump to drain collected water. The


the water should still collect into the tank. the dehumidifier had a float switch that shut the unit off when the tank is full. In turn it should have a second switch, probably a float switch that turns the pump on and off so that the pump doesnt continue to run when there is no moisture in the tank
