WHy does P2 code come on display for my Westpointe DeHumidifier


I could not find the user manual for your particular model but the manual for the MDF1-30AE model indicates that the P2 code is when the bucket is full or not in the right position.

If you have already emptied the bucket and the error remains I would recommend checking around where the bucket goes as there should be a switch that gets pressed by the bucket when it is in the proper position.

My guess would be that when you are putting the bucket in it is not properly hitting this switch.

My dehumidifier starts up as soon as the compressor clicks on the bucket full light comes on and shuts the unit off


The problem you're having is generally caused by the bucket not being installed properly. So, when the unit starts the vibration dislodges the bucket just enough that it loses contact with the Bucket Safety Removal Switch and the FULL light comes on and the unit stops

When installing the bucket, be sure that it fits "squarely" into the holder from top to bottom and makes firm contact with the bucket safety removal switch, on the rear wall of the bucket holder. When installed properly, the bottom of the bucket should not tilt down at all.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Bucket full light blinking, code 01


Assuming you have already emptied the bucket (?), the bucket may not have been reinstalled properly. When this happens, you get what you described. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Remove the water collection bucket an reinstall it, so the it fits "squarely" into the bucket holder from top to bottom. It needs to make firm contact with the bucket removal safety switch on the left rear wall of the bucket holder. The bucket should not tilt down at the bottom when installed properly. Plug the cord back in and turn the unit ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35%. If installed properly, the unit should turn ON within 5 seconds.

If the above does not solve the problem, the bucket safety removal switch may be broken. Remove the bucket and try activating it with your finger while the bucket is removed. If the unit doesn't start within a fem seconds, the switch is bad and should be replaced.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The unit is showing "full


Two things generally cause this problem. If your unit has a Float Valve inside the bucket, it's stuck in the 'Up' position, which under normal conditions, indicates to the unit, that the bucket is FULL. If you don't have that, then when the bucket was last inserted into the bucket holder, it did not trip the bucket removal safety switch. Remove the bucket and reinstall it, making sure that it fits squarely into the hole from top to bottom. Leave the unit ON when you do this, because if you do it correctly, the unit will automatically start and run. Also, be sure that humidity extraction level is set on 32 - 35 %.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Model 501D(had the wrong model number before) When I turn the unit on where the humidity is set there is a code CO 01. Unable to find my manual. the unit starts then turns off.


Hello,

I will advice you check the water bucket to see if it is full and empty the bucket in a sink if needed. GE dehumidifiers have a safety feature that shuts down the device when the water in the bucket reaches a certain level.
Install the bucket correctly in the unit by hooking the slots on the bucket on the posts on the back of the device. The dehumidifier will not run if the bucket is not properly setup in the device.
Take care.

Polar wind dehumidifier: p1 or p2 code after emptying tank.


P1 error indicates that:
  1. The water tank on the side of the unit is full.
  2. The water tank in not properly seated in the housing.
  3. The switch at the back of the water tank housing is not engaged or is loose

P1 error


Your question needs to be answered in 3 parts:

1) As per the manual for my Danby Dehumidifier (Model DDR657EE), the unit may not turn on immediately when powered On (it may take a several minutes). So, generally, it would be normal in your case.

2) Danby's Consumer Help Line (1-800-263-2629) is always busy. So, I called their General number: 419-425-8627. The receptionist transferred my call to their Service dept. My call was answered in 2 minutes.

The Service Rep. described the following code for my dehumidifier model (DDR657EE):
P1 = Defrosting: the unit will go into Defrost mode periodically to ensure that the parts are working at the right operating temperature. It should be in Defrost (P1) mode for only a brief period of time. If the unit is in Defrost (P1) mode continuously for a couple of hours (or more), then you should call Danby Service for further assistance.

He had no documentation of a P2 code for my model.

He also described other General Codes (applicable to most Dehumidifier/Humidifier models):
E1 = Not enough water
E2 = Not draining
E3 = Water temperature too cool
E4 = Overflow Switch activated
E6 / E7 = Problem with Temperature Sensor

So, generally, if you see P1 periodically (for brief periods), then it would be normal.

3) Since your unit keeps running (continuously) and there is no water in the bucket, then you should call Danby ServiceI for additional assistance - it seems defective for this reason.

I hope that helps.
