Dehumidifier seems to be running fine, but water leaking on floor even with minimal water accumulated in bucket?


Hey friend, thanks for your post!

It sounds like your dehumidifier needs to be professionally cleaned. What could be causing the problem is a buildup on the inside of your dehumidifier where the water drains out and it is causing the water to not drain properly. Additionally, I would check to verify that the drain hole is tightly secured with the plug. I know you stated that the bucket is not leaking but have you removed it to verify? Please comment back if further assist is needed. -Matt

Crosley conservator dehumidifier will not capture humidity


Have you noticed it not running as often or not being noisy? Also have you tried to select a continuous drain setting if your unit has one?

Our new Santa-Fe Classic dehumidifier is leaking water from the bottom of the unit. It's also sending a small amount of water correctly through the tube for dispersal. We've only had it for two...


The classic model drains thru the clear hose using gravity. The drip pan in that unit is about 1/2 way up in the cabinet. Make sure the drain hose exits the unit and runs flat or downhill. If the drain hose is coiled vertically or run up hill causing water to trap within the hose it can cause water to back up in the dehumidifier drip pan and overflow causing your problem. If your drain is higher than the base of the dehumidifier, you can raise the dehumidifier or you can purchase a condensate pump kit that will allow the drain water to be pumped up to 15 feet above the dehumidifier.

The drain hose may have become disconnected from the drip pan as well. To check, turn off the humidistat to stop the dehumidifier from running. Next disconnect the cord from the power supply. Remove the six screws holding the cabinet side (with the label) from the cabinet and remove the cabinet side. The drain hose connects to a nipple on the bottom of the drip pan.

P1 constantly goes on throughout the day. I do not know if I have the setting right or if the drain hose is connected properly.


First, the drain hose should not be longer than 5 feet and should be draining downward, with no kings or bends in the hose, The dehumidifier does not have a pump. It relies on gravity to drain the water.

As far as it running all day is concerned, some dehumidifiers have a "Constant" or "Continual" setting. Which means it runs constantly. Either while dehumidifying or defrosting. In addition, most Danby dehumidifier models are designed to have the fan run even when the compressor is not running. This is in order to circulate the air in the room and make the unit work more efficiently. This is a standard feature and cannot be programmed to stop.

Hope this answered you questions.

50 pint dehumidifier has drain hose connected but fills up the drain bucket and stops running....


safety switch is turning off the dehumidifier....you need to drain out the bucket more often....or put the drain hose into an actual drain....ive seen some people run a small plastic hose from the dehumidifier to the sump pump hole in their basement.
