I have a delongji DEM 10 dehumidifier and it keeps switching to pause, I have cleaned filter switched off for a while but it still won't come on


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Unless you are licensed and qualified professional, do not try to repair a dehumidifier by yourself. If your unit is running constantly yet there is no water in the tank, try lowering the temperature control. If the problem persists, there may be a problem within the refrigeration system. You may need to pull the filter and clean it. Also try wiping off the unit itself. When the water tank is full, the unit will shut off and will not run until the tank is emptied. The dehumidifier shuts off by a safety switch in the back of the unit. If the switch is not working properly, you may try manually pressing the button or slightly bending the switch.
    Motor If the fan motor is damaged or will not work, no cool air will be coming out of the dehumidifier. The unit, however, may still run. You may need to replace the motor. If the coils in the back of the dehumidifier constantly freeze, try turning off the unit for an hour or re-locating the unit to a higher position to allow the room to heat up. If your water tank is constantly full and you are emptying it on a daily basis, you may have a water leak somewhere in the room with the dehumidifier.

    I lost the instructions and want to set up a direct drain, however, I don't remember what settings are what...ie fan, the hour glass thing, or how to set the house temperature...help!


    Here is a link to the Owner's Manual for your model dehumidifier. You can download and print the manual for future reference. I would encourage you to keep it in a safe, accessible place, as your model has been discontinued. Which also, mean take good are of your unit and do routine maintenance on it. That will add to the longevity to it's use.

    My Danby Silhouette DDR556RH dehumidifier is less than 2 years old (out of warranty) and is no longer drawing out the humidity. First, the hose connection to the sump pump stopped working (I have cleaned...

    Unit is repeatedly freezing up


    Almost all dehumidifiers now have automatic defrost, but if you are seeing frost is just one small area, it means there is a refrigerant leak. Check your warranty to see if the sealed system is covered longer than one year. Generally, if it is, most manufacturers will replace the unit (rather than repair it, as the repair is rather expensive compared to the cost of a new unit). If you do not have any sealed system warranty coverage left on it, don't fix it. Buy a new dehumidifier.

    I had a similar problem with the pump not working and the water flowing into the main drainage bucket instead. I had to disassemble the housing...not an easy project to reassemble...and found that the pump has its own smaller drainage tank with a float device, a pump pre-filter, the actual pump, then of course, more drainage tubes. The entire pump drainage system of components needed cleaned of accumulated, mucoid, slime! I cleaned the channel in which water flows into the pump's tank...located on the screen filter side of the dehumidifier. Then I moved to the other side of the dehumidifier and cleaned-out the entire pump drainage tank. Note that the pump's drainage tank only empties about 1/2 inch of water each time the pump activates. Thus, there is always alot of water in the pump's drainage tank. Thus, alot of time for slime to accumulate. Next, I cleaned off the float mechanism. I then cleaned-out the pump's pre-filter. Cleaning out the pump's pre-filter was paramount to the pump functioning properly and quietly! I checked that my pump was properly installed and NOT rubbing against its mounting so that it operated quietly. I added fresh water to the pump's tank several times to insure that the pump was working properly and that all slime was eliminated. Finally, I reassembled the housing...not an easy task! My pump now functions like new. All this work had to be done to insure proper function of the dehumidifier's pump system. My dehumidifier is only 11 months old. It is still covered by the one year warranty, but it is too expensive to ship the entire unit, as Delonghi requires you to do at your expense for them to fix it under warranty. You can be assured that I will check for future slime build-up to keep my dehumidifier functioning properly. The dehumidifier works great, it's just that it's high maintenance.

    Hose Drainage


    yes, that is what the knockout port was designed for. Make sure the hose you get does actually thread onto the hose connection port before you punch out knock out. The hose should be a standard garden hose connector.

    Dehumidifier switches on and off continuously


    Patty - Is it possible that the dehumidifier is cycling... meaning there is not enough moisture in the air for it to run constantly.

    Connecting a drain hose


    Most units have a drain connection, either on the machine itself, or in the collection pail. These connections usually fit standard garden hoses.

    Dehumidifier leakage


    My dehumidifier leaked after about one year of perfect operation. I unscrewed the face plate exposing the cooling grill and found out that debris was blocking the drainage hole that fed into the water bucket. The debris came from zip ties used to bunch some wires together. Apparently they got brittle (from the constant cooling and warming?), fell apart and managed to make it's way to the drainage hole. Cleared it out and worked fine again.
