There is no one answer to resolve your problem. I keep my basement about 35% year round. I have no dampness or rusting problems. I believe you would be OK as long as you are below 50%. Normally you turn the unit off when you are in the heating season as the heating system will automatically dry your home out but again depends where you live.

Set the control for what you want and see if it will hold that for you. If it cycles you are OK (this may take several hours). Get a humidity gauge at one of the box stores (they are part of many thermometers) and see where it settles at. Give it about two weeks. You may have to play with the settings as the controls have a tolerance in them. If you cannot get the humidity low enough you may need a second unit, again this depends on the area etc.

No manual need to know what settings should be set at

There are always manuals. Go on-line to the company's web site and send them an e-mail under "contacts" with the model number. 99.9% of the time, they will send you a new manual as an e-mail attachment, back to you within 3 days.

My dehumidifier does not seem to be working properly. I can't find the manual to tell me what the settings should be. Would appreciate your help. It is a DeLonghi DE400P. Thanks Shirley

What is the specific problem? Is no water being collected by the dehumidifier or do you have another issue?

Make sure that the dehumidifier is in a room in the operating temperature range (at or above 44 degrees F). Make sure that the room door and windows are closed and that the room is not larger than 2200 square feet. Make sure that the collection bucket not full and is properly seated in the dehumidifier. Check and clean the air filter on the dehumidifier. (Vacuum the filter or rinse under running water three times. Then wait until dry to replace it in the dehumidifier.) Look at the coils of the dehumidifier. If you have ice on the coils, defrost the unit (turn off, unplug and wait for it to melt). If the ice reforms quickly, you may have a leak in the coolant system. Then the unit needs repair.

Next make sure that you have good air flow around the dehumidifier and that the desired humidity set point is lower than the humidity of the room.

Retrevo has the manual available: . You will need to enter a code to download the PDF.

I hope this helps.

We lost our manual for ours and my husband cant remember the settings is there a place where i can read the settings or a manual i can download?

Unfortunately, Delonghi, for whatever reason, does not post the Owner's Manuals for their Dehumidifiers online. However, if you call Delonghi Customer Support 800-322-3848 they can furnish one to you. Probably by email attachment.

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

I recently picked up a dehumidifier with no manual and digital settings.......... my question is this, I want it so it dries out the basment as much as possible, so do I set it to the 20% setting or the 70...

The lower the setting the longer the run time, so if you set this unit to 20%, it should in essence run constantly, as it would be quite difficult to pull a basement down to such a low humidity level. Hope this helps.
