Danby DDR7009 humidity reading stuck at 30%, not activating

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?

SOURCE: the compressor of the dehumidifier does not work

Try a hard start kit for the compressor.

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
problem.

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?

How do I get my Danby dehumidifier, model#DDR70A2GP stop its fan from running continuously once it reaches a desired humidity level? Thanks


I just read your instruction manual for you, and it appears that you can't. You choose the humidity setting and you choose your fan speed and that's it. The machine will stop when the bucket is full.

Your manual is here;

When the desired humidity level is reached (in my case 50 %), the unit does not go into standby - why is this? It reads 48% but is still running.


I would check the humidity sensor. I think it is located in the return side of that model. It may have trash on it.

I have a Danby Silhouette and the fan works but the dehumidifier doesnt.


Bryan, it may imply be a case of the humidity extraction level being set to high. Lower the level to 35% and see what happens. As far as the fan running is concerned. Most dehumidifiers are designed for the fan to run, even if the compressor doesn't turn ON. It's designed to keep the air circulating and if the humidity rises above the setting you have it on, the humidity sensor will pick up this change and turn the compressor ON.

Also, remove the air intake filter to see if it's clogged and needs cleaning. Maintain at least a minimum of 12" of free air space all around the dehumidifier. Poor air circulation will prevent the unit from working properly. As will, to low an ambient air tempeature. Most unit struggle to work at temperature between 40 & 60 degrees F.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

The Danby Millennium Dehumidifer goes not condense any more. Have unpluged the unit, cleaned all of the filters. Is there a way to reset the unit from the controls?


If you unplugged the heater for 12-15 minutes, after turning OFF the Master On/OFF Switch, the electronics should reset themselves. Also, be sure that you don't have the humidity level set to high. Anything above 60% wont' extract any moisture to speak of. If your unit doesn't have an LED display, set the unit on Minimum.

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

Kenmore dehumidifier M/N 580.53650200 only runs for about 1 minute, then stops. Dehumidifying level is set to minimum (40) and it's damp in the basement so I know the air is not too dry. The fan works, the...


Well to knowledge the problem 40 percent is dry. means your basement is great. humidity should be 30/50 percent 50 grows mold. also if it runs for a min the auot shut off is activating. check this first.

Humidty reading remains at 84%


Dehumidifiers are generally a very simple appliance, however a humidistat is one of those items a person tends to rely on to provide feedback. You may want to remove the grille area where the humidistat is mounted and inspect for foreign material in the way of the sensor. If nothing foreign is detected then you should replace the humidistat.

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
