SOURCE: Kenmore # 58052650100 this is my humidifiers model

Christian, simply put ... the lower the percentage the more moisture it will extract. The higher the percentage the less it will extract and just maintain that level.

The lowest level is what you want to use in a wet basement. If the ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 & 60 degrees F, you want to get the dehumidifier up off the floor on to something sturdy, that can handle the weight and the vibration. The reason for this, is that most dehumidifiers will not work well at or between those temperatures. Once the water collection bucket is FULL, the Bucket Full light will come on the the dehumidifier will shut OFF. The bucket most be emptied and properly reinstalled, before the unit will turn ON again. Also, rather than run it in continual mode, run it in a timed mode. Usually either 2 hours of 4 hours.

It seems you don't have the Owner's Manual for this unit. It would be wise to get one. Since it's a Sears Kenmore, you can get it online from Sears Parts Direct. This will help you in the future in performing routine maintenance on the unit.

In the meantime, I hope I helped you understand some of the basic operation of your dehumidifier. Please let me know. Thanks.

I just bought a new dehumidifier. 30 pint. put it in cellar and it's not drawing any water out. why?

You probably have it on the fan setting and not the humidifier setting, which uses a refrigeration system to condense the water onto a chilled element.

I just bought this and it keeps leaking, why?

If the room tempature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
I out mine over the floor drain.
Turn off and it will defost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifers work below a room temo of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensot from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.

My dehumidifier is making a power surge every few minutes. why?

A dehumidifier is functionally the same as an air conditioner. It has a compressor motor, which is a fairly high current draw item.

First of all, unless you are well versed in electrical repairs, you should unplug this unit and do not use it. This is a dangerous condition and a fire or electrocution could result.

One of four things is happening:

1) You have a wiring fault in the circuit your humidifier is plugged into. There is a loose connection in the circuit, causing a voltage drop, and the humidifier therefore has to pull much more current to start it's compressor. This is a very dangerous condition, as an electrical fire could result. Try plugging the unit into another circuit and see if it does the same thing.

2) the compressor of the humidifier is going bad and is shorting out internally. Time for a new unit.

3) Many compressor motors use a 'start capacitor' to help the motor get going. If this part has failed, the motor will try to start, but it will not be able to.

4) There is a fault in the power cord or controls of the humidifier. Just like #1 above, a loose connection could cause a voltage drop, making the unit draw high current.

most of these units are standard 110V units. If yours uses 220V (like an electric dryer), then it could have 'lost a phase' which is also a similar electrical issue.

Depending on the ambient temp/humidity and how its set it could definitely run continually. If you don't hear it it's possible the blade is broken or just stuck.
