SOURCE: When the bucket is full

What you should do is remove the bucket and look for a pressure switch which is most of the time under the bucket and test it by pushing down on it's plunger, if the unit turns off either the switch needs adjusting or is there is a plate above it needs the be bent .

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?

Haire model HD308 dehumidifier quit shutting off automatically when full?

usually the float is stuck. remove the resevoir and check the upper inside of the machine for the float. if you can flop it up and down easily, it's the switch attached to it that needs to be replaced.

Does not shut off when bucket full and overflows.

From what you have described, the float valve is the top left rear of the bucket may be stuck in the down position and is not rising when the water level rises to the shut off point. Jiggle the float valve handle to free it up. In addition, the bucket may not be installed properly and is allowing water to leak onto the floor. Be sure that bucket is installed "squarely:" into it's holder from top to bottom. When installed properly, there should be no downward tilt at the bottom of the bucket.

To further assist you, I have included a link to your Owners Manual in case you have misplaced yours. You may download and print this manual for future reference.

I hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My LG dehumidifier does not turnoff when full and overflows

make sure the float in the bucket isn't binding on something. The float actually activates a button that you can see when you remove the bucket. pull the bucket out and see if the unit cuts off. Maybe the button is stuck.

An automatic overflow switch and Container “Full” indicator light are provided to turn the
dehumidifier off before the container overflows. When the indicator light on the control panel
glows, the water container must be emptied. If the light remains on and the dehumidifier does
not begin to operate make sure the float is attached to the water container.

When the condensate water container is full, the indicator lights up.
1. Turn the power off before removing container. Wait 3 minutes for
any remaining water to drain into the condensate container.
2. Tilt the container forward then lift carefully by the handle.
3. Empty and gently re-insert the container.
Important:This water is not suitable for drinking.

Please rate and god bless:)

Dehumidifier emptys in the floor.

Check the float first - be sure the styrofoam on the bottom is still intact.  Be sure that you can move it up and down freely (and easily) with the bucket out of the machine.  If that is not bound up, and the foam is in place, next check the switch in the dehumidifier itself.  It's directly behind where the float goes - the way to test it is to turn the dehumidifier on and push the metal tab in with your finger.  The machine should cut out immediately - if it does not - the microswitch needs to be replaced.  (they're very cheap, and simple to replace)

Bucket overfills to the point of spillage

The float is the main feature that keeps it from overflowing. I have no idea why there would even have to be an adjustable component in the circuit. The float is connected to an On-OFF microswitch and may be tested with the unit set to run.
Remove the bucket and manually push upward on the float. If the unit stops running then the bucket may be misalgned,(Make sure float is on the inside of the bucket and not lodged behind the bucket).
