Astro9boy, when I first read your post, I considered the problem was was just operator error. But, when I read the Owners Manual for your unit, I changed my mind. It seems there may be a problem with the control panel. But, attempting to reset it may solve the problem.

Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes.
After the time has elapsed, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch ON
Hopefully, during that 15 minute timeout, the unit reset itself & reverted back to the original factory settings. If so, you can set the controls where you desire.

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.gilman-group.com/gilman_product_usermanuals/PD24GE_eng.pdf

If the above does not sole the problem, you will need to contact Philco, or the p;ace of purchase, as the unit is still under warranty.

I hope this helped you troubleshoot & solve the problem.

I have a fdl70s1 and will only work in continuous mode.. Collects water fine but turns off when I adjust humidity setting


I appreciate your post, Lee Silvey!

I understand that your Frigidaire dehumidifier, FDL70S1, will only work in continuous mode. Sounds like you could have a possible issue with the sensor or control panel. Are you under warranty? I would advise you to speak with your manufacturer to see if any further resolution can be provided. -Matt

Frigidaire dehumidifier


Good Afteroon Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your inquiry!

Typically there are one or two reasons why your dehumidifier is not collecting water. Either the setting might be set too high or not enough moisture in the room. I suggest changing the set point to a lower setting. Ashumiditydrops in the room the amount of water will decrease and very little water may be generated even when in continuous mode. If these basictroubleshootingtips prove ineffective, then your dehumidifier may possibly have system issues. Is your dehumidifier still in warranty? If so, you might want to reach out directly to the manufacturer to determine the coverage on your dehumidifier and the procedures to any potential remedy in that regard. Best!

Why won't my Frigidaire FDF50S1 humidifier maintain its settings?


Hey Art Miner, thank you for your post!

I understand that your dehumidifier is not operating properly. You should put it on a continuous drain mode to see if it will continue to pull moisture. Could you please provide feedback to what your appliance is doing once set to a continuous drain? -Matt

My LAD30NUL won't run continuously.


The bucket closes a switch when inserted. This prevents your dehumidifier from operating without the bucket in place. You will have to jump the switch to accomplish what you are intending to do

Does the fan on a Kenmore dehumidifier run continuously, or does it shut off when the set point is reached? I returned a Frigidaire unit because the fan is designed to run continuously.


That depends on the manufacturer and in what mode you are operating it. If it's Continuous Mode. Yes, the fan will continue to run, as it's recirculating the air, in an effort to determine if and when the humidity level rises. Then the compressor will turn ON to extract the humidity.

Also, most units will do this if they are running thru the Defrost Cycle. This happens when the cooling coils frost over. It to, is a normal cycle.

So, if you are operating the dehumidifier in Continuous Mode, it's acceptable.

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

Just purchased a Danby dehumidifier (model # DDR6O11R). I was wondering when the dehumidifier reaches the programmed level of humidity (example: 40%). Is the unit suppose to shut off completely? I believe...


Depending on which mode you have the unit set on, will determine if it shots OFF entirely or the fan continues to run. In the Constant or Continual mode, the compressor will turn OFF, once the humidity extraction level has been reached. But, the fan will continue to operate, in an effort to keep the air circulating, so that if the humidity level rises, the compressor will turn ON and start extracting again.

In Timed Mode (usually 2 hour or 4 hour) , when the compressor turns OFF the fan does too.

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

Whirlpool DEHUMIDIFIER Model - AD70USS1 does fan NOT does not cycle off anymore in the low settings as it should


According to the Owner's Manual for your model, the fan will run continually, if the unit is set in continuous mode or if the unit is in defrost mode. Once the unit senses a rise in the humidity level, the compressor will start up again. Also, a dirty or clogged air filter will cause the fan to run more that it should.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

When I turn it on it continually beeps, and I cannot change the settings--it stays on "high" and "continuous run". Is there a way to reset this?


Try unplugging it for at least an hour. Over night would be better. By then, it should have lost any stored memory it has.
