When hose is attached, bucket fills up

I have attached the hose to the threaded connector, and left the humidifier in a non-occupied area. I chck it daily and the bucket is full each day. I thought the hose allowed the bucket to be bypassed and the bucket was there only for the switch to power??

The hose connection was ok, but, the hose itself was a lttle, I mean little bit higher than the connector, and as a catch all to not allow flooding, will then drip back into the bucket. I laid the entire hose down and then up a little bit to the pump and it works great. Thanks for all the help

Yes: hose allowed the bucket to be bypassed yes: bucket was there only for the switch to power can you pass a finger through the hole where the hose connected? probably not, right? most of these buckets have a knockout area inside the hose connection. Try prying it out or even drilling it out if required. remember that once you remove hose, you must purchase a plug hose end connector to continue bucket only useage.

How do i make it continue to run with no bucket so it does not fill and and so i don't have to empty it


Attach a length of garden hose no longer than 5 feet, to the threaded drain hose connection that was supplied with your unit, to carry water to the drain.
1. Remove the drain-hole cover on the back left side of your unit.
2. Connect a garden hose to the threaded drain hose connector.
3. Push hose connector tightly to the drain-hole on Rear Grille with the arrow on the tab pointing UP.
The hose attachment will accept a standard garden hose fitting.
Do not over tighten the hose when connecting it to the hose connector,
use a rubber washer and tighten by hand firmly without stripping the
plastic threads.
When being attached to hose connector drain hose connection,
do not bend or kink the hose. The hose should lie flat from the
dehumidifier to the drain.

How do I install a hose so this humidifier drains automatically?


Look at the drain pan, it might have a garden hose connection that you might have to knock out, mine is not the same model but it may be similiar, and then run it to a floor drain or such. Good Luck

We had a hose attached to empty into a drain, but the hose came loose. Now it won't run because it shows the bucket is full.


Was the hose attached to the bucket or directly attached to the inside of the humidifier?
If it was to the bucket, the hose may have slightly pulled the bucket out of place, disengaging the safety switch. Unplug the unit and wait 5 minutes. Then plug the unit back in. Turn it to ON and remove the bucket and carefully reinstall it. You should hear a "click" sound when it's properly in place and the unit should start back up,

Hope this helps to solve your problem.

I would like to SEE a picture of how to hook up a hose from the DH to a drain.( no manual & cant find one for this DH 304) TO lift the bucket off & drain has become to heavy for me. Thanks,...


My DH 304 is a hand-me-down so I don't have a manual but it did come with a hose attachment which is plastic tube with a threaded end to which you attach a hose. The other end of the tube goes through a hole in the back of the unit and then through a foam screen inside the unit to slip over the drain plug. Aligning the tube and the drain plug can be tricky; it is helpful to remove the bucket to see if you're getting the tube onto the drain plug. Once you have the tube attached to the drain plug, align the tube in the hole in the rear of the unit so that the tab on the tube is inserted into the slot at the hole in the back of the unit.

How do you hook it up to a floor drain?


With most portable dehumidifiers use a bucket to catch the condensate. Then the bucket is full the dehumidifier stops, then you need to empty it and replace the bucket to get the dehumidifier to start working again.

To make this unit run continually, the bucket can be modified so a garden hose can be attached and the hose can be feed into a floor drain. To do this look at the bottom of the bucket, there should be a hose connector where you can attach a standard garden hose. You will need to drill out the center of the hose connector with a 1/4" drill bit. Then you can attach the hose to the bucket and the other end into the floor drain.

Non-standard bucket connector on Haier HD456E / HD656E


A regular brass 3/4" FIP to 3/4" MHT connector with a garden hose washer between the bucket and brass connector was close enough to make things work.

I purchased a LG Dehumidifier MODEL LHD45EL and I followed instructions to attach a hose to it for the drain. I removed the drain hole cover and I don't see a drain hole connector or a hole to install it...


Remove the drain bucket. on the top there are two pieces that can be removed just by taking them out. they are just laying in there. 1 is the brush the other is the "drain tube insert" it is a plastic tube and has a threaded fitting on one end. take your garden hose with a female connector on one end just like you were going to install on your spicket outside of your house and connect it to the threaded end of the "drain tube insert" make sure you knockout the round plastic drain plug cover hole located in the back of the unit (it is behind where your power cord was stored) it has three tabs to break. remove drain bucket. take the drain tube with hose attatched and insert it into the drain plug hole in the back and attach it onto the drain outlet (the drain outlet is inside the drain bucket side at the top it looks like an elbow fitting) push the tube so that the flap with the arrow is flush with the back. once you get the "drain tube insert" almost all the way flush with the back -->if you look inside the drain bucket side you will see where it fits over the drain outlet

Humidifier says "bucket full", not using bucket have hose attached


Hi,

Offhand, two possibilities:
1. erroneous sensor reading(s) causing system to respond likewise erroneously; and/or
2. firmware/software glitch.

Initially, I would suggest a full hard reset, that is unplug from the mains for an hour or so. This would normally revert the unit back to factory default (assuming no hardware problem). Additionally, you may want to check the sensor(s) like the a bucket full sensor often would be a float switch of some kind.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Problem with draining water through hose


I bought one of the FDL70S1 Frigidaire dehumidifiers today for my shop, and found that the $5 hose I bought to drain it through the floor wouldn't tighten down completely, allowing the hose to twist and wobble, a sure indication that it was not water tight. Simply adding a second washer, as described in another answer here, allowed me to tighten the hose sufficiently to produce a tight fit with no play between the hose and the dehumidifier. It hasn't leaked. I know it is a threads-per-inch issue, and I am stumped as to why Frigidaire would supply these units with a different thread pitch than the standard GHT (garden hose thread) 3/4" - 11.5 tpi. The threads on the unit appear to be 3/4 NPS - 14 tpi. Go figure!
