Question about Danby DDR7009REE Dehumidifier
The humidity reading on the dehumidifier is stuck at 30%, which is the minimum, meaning that it will not engage de dehumidifier function, rather it will only engage the fan. The humidity sensor is likely malfunctioning. Does anybody know the part number to get?

There are a several things that can mimic a faulty humidity sensor.
1. The air intake filter is clogged and needs to be removed and cleaned.
2. The coiling coils need to be cleaned.
3. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
If the above fails to help solve the problem, replacing the Humidity Sensor is certainly an option. But, before you jump into it, make sure you have an accurate wiring diagram, so you know which sensor is which. As the part does not come with installation instructions.
I hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

See previous answer. If new, contact supplier to replace float switch. Are you sure it's not just a fan staying on with the tank out?
