My Comfort-Aire Dehumidifier has started leaking water. The unit works fine but the water bucket does not retain all the water. As the bucket fills there are slow leaks. Also, sometimes when replacing the...


It can have leaks from the condenser to the bucket. The piping and hoses should be checked all the way. Perhaps even replaced or at least cleaned. I don't think it is wise to do this yourself. Because in the system also can be algae, bacteria and viruses. And you need tools and skills to replace defective tubes, pipes or gaskets.

Humidifier is draining on floor while bucket is not yet full- why?


ck that float level in corner of bucket is free and moves well , also verify that unit is level as this affects the float and amount that bucket can hold , also a ck that drain hole that allows water to enter into bucket is not partways plugged with something , should be pencil size hole there

Bucket switch/float valve sticking? Take out the bucket and make sure the switch moves freely.

The light indicating the bucket is full stays on with no water in it.


Michael, the problem you're experiencing is caused by one of two things. Solving either requires turning the unit OFF , unplugging it and removal of the water collection bucket.

1. The float valve in the top of the bucket is either broken or stuck in the ON position. Check the arm of the float valve to see if it moves freely and is not broken.

2. The bucket was not reinstalled properly. Install the bucket so that it fits "squarely' from top to bottom into the bucket holder and that is it makes good contact with the bucket safety removal switch on the rear wall of the bucket holder.

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

My dehumidifier full light is on but the unit is empty and the fan motor won't work. Is there a way to reset it? Is that why the fan motor won't work?


This is generally causes by improperly installing the water collection bucket after removing it to empty it. Or the float valve in the top ow the water bucket s stuck in the "UP" position. Some Maytag models have a float control that moves from left to right, depending on how much water you want it to collect, before having to empty it. It may be stuck in the center position and needs to be moved left or right.

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

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a slow blinking red light - not working


Normally, the slow blinking red light, indicates that the water collection tank/bucket is full and needs to be emptied. If the bucket is NOT full, it indicates that the tank/bucket was not installed or reinstalled properly, because it did not make secure contact with the bucket removal safety switch. Removing the bucket and reinstalling it properly will normally resolve the problem. Make sure the bucket fits squarely into it's holder from top to bottom.

In case you have misplaced your Owner's Manual, I have included a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference. http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/117029-1.pdf

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