The unit is leaking water, but not from the collection bucket. The unit is in the basement, has worked well for many years, but has never been serviced or cleaned.


More than likely, the drain tube or hole that delivers the water into the collection bucket is clogged. To clear the clog: First turn the unit OFF and unplug it from the wall outlet. Use an 18 -20" long plastic Zip Tie, that will fit into the drain tube or hole. DO NOT use a wire coat hanger for this. Carefully insert the Zip Tie into the hole or tube and gingerly work it in until you reach the bend of the tube. This is where it gets a little tricky, because you must get past that bend, to be effective. Once the Zip Tie has reached it's limited reach or it has bottomed out. Slowly pull it back out, while rotating it. This will remove any clogs, so be prepared for water to follow.


Hope this helps you solve that leaky situation. Please let me know.

The humidifier appears to be working (with sound ) but is not collecting any water-cleaned the filter and still the same -the lit up area where it usually has the numbers is sitting at P2- I have lost the...


Alison -

A humidifier will not collect any water. A humidifier has a tank that you fill with water. The water is released / forced into dry air to make it moist, usually by a fan or ultrasonic method.

A dehumidifier has an empty tank that gets filled by the appliance extracting moisture from the air. The tank will have to be manually emptied periodically, otherwise the safety / water level switch will shut the unit off so that the tank doesn't over flow.

I suspect that you meant to say dehumidifier.. and if so, please provide the manufacturer's name and model. The "P2" indication will be difficult to interpret without knowing the manufacturer's info.

Does not dehumidify


Hello. I am here to help. Let me begin by saying that a dehumidifier only needs to be operated if the humidity in your home is too high. If the humidity is low, the humidifier will have to work really hard to try and remove water from it.

Here is an overview of how the dehumidifier is supposed to work:

When the unit runs, the circulating fan and compressor also run. The fan continually draws room air over the evaporator coils, which are cold, and then over the condenser coils, which are warm. Because the evaporator coils are cold, the moisture in the room collects on them--just as the outside of a glass of icy liquid "sweats" on a warm, humid day. When the moisture on the coils increases, it drips off of the coils into the collection container.

The air then flows over the warm condenser coils and out into the room. This process removes water from the air and, because of the heat from the fan motor and compressor motor, the exiting air is somewhat warmer, as well as dryer.
