SOURCE: danby dehumidifier ddr4588ee ices up.

According to your Owners Manual, the coils may start to frost at 60 degrees and the defrost sensor should turn ON and cycle periodically. However, the air temperature at the floor level in a basement, is colder than the air temperature by 5 to 8 degrees. So this may be causing the problem. In addition, if the air intake filter is dirty or clogged, the unit has to strain to keep up and will not function as it should.

If the unit is totally iced up, turn the unit Off and unplug it from the wall outlet. Allow is to thaw completely before attempting to clean the filter. You may want to put some old towels under it while it thaws. Once it's thawed, move it to a bathroom that has a shower. Plug it it in and set the humidity level at 45%. Turn the shower ON at a Medium hot temperature (enough to generate steam) and as you exit the batroom, close the door. DO NOT operate the bathroom's exhaust fan. Allow the unit to operate for 15 to 20 minutes, before returning to the bathroom. Then turn the shower OFF and check the unit for any frost and the amount of water collected in the bucket. If there is no frost on the unit and there's water in the bucket the unit is operating properly.

When you move it back to the basement, place it up off the floor on something sturdy, that can hold the weight and not be bothered by the vibration of the unit, when it's running. (ie a work bench, a counter top, etc.) Operate the unit as you normally do and monitor it for frost or icing up. And, whether or not the defrost sensor is cycling as it should. If you get no frost or just minor frost, it was the air temperature at the floor level, that was causing the problem.

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

Lori, the Danby Humidifier, Model # DDR2504 does not have a heating function. It's just a 25 pint dehumidifier. In fact, there are no Danby Dehumidifiers that have a heating function.

By, chance do you have Multifunction Air Conditioning unit, rather than a dehumidifier? If so, please provide the correct model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

All Danby dehumidifiers, regardless of the model number operate the same way.
The link below to a 50 pint model should provide all the info you need.

However, I think you'll find that draining into a bucket is not an option. As the hose drain relies entirely on gravity to drain. So, it will not drain down and then up into a bucket. The hose drainage method, is designed to drain into a floor drain or a sump.

Hope this helps you.

My dehumidifier ices up any suggestions thanks evan


Evan, a dirty or clogged air intake filter can cause it to freeze, as well as obstructed air flow around the unit. Maintain a minimum or 12" clear air space all around the dehumidifier. Also operating the unit in temperatures below 40 degree (F), will also cause the coils to freeze. In addition, low refrigerant in the compressor can cause the coils to freeze. In which case, recharging the gas should solve the problem, And finally, worse case scenario is that the defrost cycle sensor has failed and needs to be replaced.

If you find you need parts and/or service and don't want to tackle it yourself, go to the Danby link below and enter your Zip Code.

Danby Dehumidifier


I dropped the water bucket by accident on the dehumidifier, and I have the same problem. Here what I found :
First, remove the water bucket and find the circuit diagram, it is very useful.

E1 code is related to the room humidity sensor, E2 code is related to the room temperature sensor and E3 code is related to the safety thermistor sensor. If you have one of these error code displayed, you will probably have to replace the sensor.

The humidity and temp sensors are located on the same board. To access it, remove the water bucket and you will see the 2 screws holding the front panel. Remove the screws, then gently prayed the front panel. Be careful, there is two plastic clip on the top of the panel and they are really easy to break. The board is located at the top right, under the cover. The safety thermistor is located on a pipe on the right side of the dehumidifier.
