My Humidifier is 2 years old. It worked fine and now there is an "EC" code on panel

Unit malfunction. Dehumidifiers are designed to function within specific temperate ranges, usually between 50 and 80 degrees. Make sure that the ambient temperature of the room is within the range of your dehumidifier. Try not to run it continuously.

Unir ran good for 8 months then cut off with current humidity reading LO. Humidity is not LO. Have to set below 40% then runs all the time. The AUTO humidistat sensor must be broke. 1 year...

In addition to a faulty humidistat sensor, there are 5 basic, yet solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this

If none of the above solves the problem, contact Haier Customer Support
1-877-337-3639, before your warranty expires.Haier units will generally show an E1 code if a sensor or circuit is faulty and unit will not run at all.

I hope this helped you troubleshoot & solve the problem

Dehumidifier not turning on showing an e2 code

Lisa, unfortunately, Haier for whatever reason does not list what error codes mean, in their Owners Manual. You will have to contact Haier Customer Support 1-877-337-3639 for that.

In the meantime, turn the ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes. Then, plug the unit back in and turn the ON/OFF Switch to ON. Hopefully, during that 15 minute timeout, the electronics reset and reverted back to the original factory settings. If they did, you can set the controls as you like.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My dehumidifier is showing an E2 code on it. It is a brand new haier, can you help me out with this problem?

E2 Code indicates a Sensor Error automatic shutdown. To find out which sensor it is you will have to call Haier Customer Support 1-877-337-363.

In the meantime, turn the unit OFF & unplug it for 15 minutes. Then plug the unit back in and turn ON. ON. Hopefully the unit reset itself and reverted back to the original factory settings. And you can set te humidity extraction level where you desire. If the error code reappears, definitely contact Haier, as youtr unit is still under warranty.

Unit will not run and the code 'LO' show up. What does the 'LO' code mean?

Hi, it simply means that the humidity level is lower then 35% the lowest setting on the dehumidifier...
It will not run when showing that...

When you powered down the unit, did you just turn if OFF using the controls on the unit Or did you unplug it entirely? If you didn't unplug it, it won't reset itself. Leave it unplugged for at least 30 minutes. As far as the blinking bucket full light is concerned ... It's possible that the bucket is slightly out of kilter and is only making partial contact with the safety switch. Especially if it's sitting on uneven soil or when the bucket get partially full the weight of the bucket is pulling it out of kilter because it's sitting on soil, rather than a hard floor. If nothing else, place it on a 1/2" piece of plywood or OSB and level it.

To be totally candid, I have some concerns about leaving a dehumidifier running, unattended in the crawl space of a house. There's to many things that could go wrong that would have disastrous results.

Code on Top

I have another of their dehumidifiers, the MDF1-30AE. The first time the P1 came on, the unit stopped, because the filter needed cleaning. Recently P1 came on but the unit didn't turn off, and I had already cleaned the filter, so I phoned Midea customer service at 1-866-646-4332. The man told me P1 means it's in defrost mode and said to just leave it on and the P1 will eventually go away. It's been a while though....

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.
