I have a hose hooked up in the back to continually drain water but it isn't working. I have to keep emptying the water. How do I get it to work? And if I take out the plug water leaks everywhere.
The problem you're facing is either a clog in the drain hose or a clog in the hose connector's tubing.
The drain hose is an easy one to insect and clean, if necessary. For the hose connector tubing, you need to do the following.
Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it.
Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic
Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing.
Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will
need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either
bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip
Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs.
As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water
may follow.Reconnect the drain hose, plug the unit in and turn the Master
ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or
Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run,
while you monitor it for drainage thru the hose.
NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers
Hope this helped you solve the problem. P;ease let me know. Thanks.
