Power button is blinking on polar wind model MDF1-30AE dehumidifier?


The tank closes an interlock when it is reinstalled and operation is restored. The tank may not have been reinstalled in such a way as to close the interlock.

Can't turn off blinking pump button. Do not want to use pump at all.


Sounds like an intermittent pump control button, keep trying and you might get it to switch. You could also try disconnecting entirely from power for a few hours, then plugging it in. I think that the humidifier power-up default is with the pump disabled.

How do you know if it is on?


Assuming that the unit is plugged in to an outlet that has power, press the ON button and a green light should come ON. That will indicate the unit is getting power and is ready to function. If however, you have the humidity level set to high and it's equal to or higher than the humidity level in your home, the unit's compressor and fan will not turn ON and run. Keep in mind, the humidity level, whether it's and LCD readout screen or just a minimum and high setting, that's not the amount of humidity that the unit will remove. It's what it will maintain. So, setting it as low as possible, should cause the unit to start functioning.

If it doesn't start, check the water collection bucket, to be sure that it's installed properly and is making contact with the safety trigger switch. If it's not making contact, the unit will not turn ON.

Hope this info helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Flashing green light stays on, unit won't start when you press the on/off button


I believe the unit needs to me reset to the manufacturer's default settings. To do this, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the outlet for 10 - 15 minutes. Then plug the unit back into the wall outlet and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The green light will blink until you change the humidity setting to below what the humidity level is in your home. If you set it higher, it will not turn ON or will turn ON only for a couple of minutes.

Also, check the position of the water collection bucket, to make sure that it's installed properly and has triggered the safety device.

To help you more, I have included a link to your Owners Manual that you can download and print for future reference, if you have misplaced yours. Take good care of your unit and perform routine maintenance regularly. As Danby has discontinued (retired) your model humidifier.

When the mode button is pushed, I only receive the option of dehumidifying, or just fan. The manual claims it has a heat option but it is not available. A friend of mine has the same one and they have the...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Their has to be a model difference issue . I have checked the Manuel and have put a copy of the section, for modes. and their is no heat only mode.

Your unit uses heat anyway, so i really do not know how, heat only would help you. I would say to look at the sticker on your friends model, and see if the numbers are exact.

Default Setting:

When the unit is first connected to a power supply, the electronic circuit board will automatically default to the following factory settings;
Mode: Dehumidifier Humidity Set Air Value:60% RH Fan Speed: = Low

NOTE: In the event of a power failure or the unit is switched 'Off', the most recent settings are retained and restored once the power is switched "On"/resumed.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Depending on the ambient humidity conditions, when power is restored or switched 'On' the dehumidifier may not start automatically under the factory or custom (see page 7) default setting. This is an indica- tion that the ambient RH% level of the surrounding envi- ronment is lower than the current default setting and it may be necessary to select a lower set RH% value.
DRY MODE SELECTION: 1. The unit does not have to be switched on (opera- tional) to select/set a program. All programs can be selected with the unit in the "off" position.
2. Press the MODE button until the Dry symbol is shown in the mode area of the display. Note: Each time the MODE button is pressed, the setting will alternate between DRY (dehumidifier) and FAN (only) mode.

3. Press the or cursor buttons to select the desired RH% operating value. To select CONTINUOUS operation,pressthe buttonuntilthesymbol"--" appears in the SET AIR display. During CONTINUOUS mode operation, the humidistat (control) will be by-passed and the compressor will operate non-stop regardless of humidity conditions.
FAN SPEED SELECTION:

4. Press the fan symbol on the keypad. Each time the button is pressed, the mode selection will alternate between "High Fan" and "Low Fan" speed options. The fan speed you select will appear in the LED display; either a 4 blade fan symbol for 'high fan' or a 3 blade fan symbol for 'low fan' will be shown in the display area.

5. When all settings are complete, press the I/O button to start the selected operation (MODE) and the blue opera- tion light will illuminate.

FAN ONLY MODE SELECTION:
1. Press the MODE button until the fan blade symbol is shown in the mode area of the display. 2. Press the "Fan" symbol on the keypad. Each time the button is pressed, the mode selection will alternate between "High Fan" and "Low Fan" speed options.
3. When all settings are complete, press the on/off button to start fan mode operation and the blue operation light will illuminate.

I have a DANBY PREMIERE R410A dehumidifier. I have misplaced the manual. I want to have the unit run for a fixed period of time (not all the time). HELP!!!


On the control panel the 3rd button from the left is the timer button. If you press this button when the unit is running the number display on the left will start blinking- use the up/down arrows to set the time that you want the unit to run.
If you press the timer button when the unit is off it will run on and off for the designated time you set- eg if you set 1 then every 1 hour the machine will switch on and run for 1 hour.
(The left # will just blink once you have the time you want just leave it and eventually the normal humidity setting reading will show)

We have LG65 model dh5018 that froze up and now doesnot want to work


if you carefully examin the compressor/motor, there should be a small red or orange button on the side of it. Or it may be inside the the terminal box.TURN OFF POWER BEFORE YOU START!!!
press the button in firmly and you shoul feel or hear a click.

That is the motor protection 'overload".
once pressed. close it all up and turn on power.

01% humidity


When you push the power button, the blower fan comes on. In a few minutes you should hear a second "click"--that is your compressor starting. Do you hear that second click?

The compressor is located in the rear bottom on the right side looking at the machine. After you press the start button and the blower fan comes on, bend over near the back of the unit and listen for the "click".

Will not power on after the electricity came back on in the house!


That capacitor is a run cap for the compressor. Your problem sounds like a faulty connection in the circuit which supplies power to the solid state electronics. The electronics will have a 115 VAC supply from the rest of the machine's circuitry, most likely running to a small transformer. Check for 115VAC when you attempt to start the machine. Trace the circuit until you find the point where the power disappears when the start is pushed. If this does not reveal the problem, replace the board that has the transformer on it. There is a faulty connection somewhere which is opening when power is drawn. It is also possible that the compressor is locked & drawing enough power to disable the rest of the machine. Try it with the compressor disconnected, before replacing anything.
