SOURCE: Water does not come into bucket. Light will not

It sounds as if the bucket full switch is broken or out of adjustment

Edison 40 fan starts -then trips breaker (before compressor kicks on)...toast?

Maybe..but what else do you have on the same circuit? Could be overloaded by another appliance. Make sure you unplug all items on the same circuit, then try it again. If it still blows most likely its in the unit, if if runs with no problem, issue is overloaded circui, too many other things on the smae line.

The drawer is empty of water but the signal says 'full'. Is there a broken part? Thank you, Eileen

No, probably not. Either the float valve in the top of the bucket (drawer) is stuck in the 'UP' position or the bucket wasn't installed properly.

For the stuck float valve. Remove the bucket and look in the right or left corner of the bucket for the float valve. If it's stuck in the 'UP' position, jiggle the handle to make it return to the 'DOWN' position.

When reinstalling the bucket into it's holder (whether it had a float valve or not), be sure that it fits "squarely" from top to bottom into the holder. It should not tilt down at the bottom. The bucket must make firm contact with the bucket safety removal switch inside the holder.

Hope this helps you to troubles shoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have my Edison 40 running at the highest setting (lowest humidity) and it isn't lowering my humidity. The hose to my floor drain emits only a tiny drop once in a while. Is there something for me to...

Ronald, first,check the air in take filter for dirt and/or clogs. Also check your drain hose for a blockage, as well as the hose connection on the unit. In addition, if the cooling coils are dirty, this will cause the unit to strain to keep up. You should be able to access them, after you remove the air intake filter. Clean them with mild soap and warm water. Rinse and thoroughly dry them, before applying a very light coat of WD40. CAUTION: BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY SERVICE ON THE UNIT, TURN THE MASTER ON/OFF SWITCH TO OFF AND UNPLUG THE UNIT.

I assume you have one of the older Edison 40 Dehumidifiers, that doesn't have an LED readout. And this is where it can sometimes get confusing, when setting the humidity extraction level. Maximum doesn't always indicate the maximum extraction level. And in your case, I believe if you set it on Minimum, you would get better results. Always allow a minimum of 12" clear air space all around the unit, while in operation.

If, after you troubleshoot the above things and want to do a good in home test of the unit. Move the unit to the bathroom, plug it it in, turn it ON and set it for Minimum. Turn the shower ON hot enough to generate steam. Do Not turn the bathroom exhaust fan ON. Close any window(s) that may be open. As you exit the bathroom, close the door. Wait 15 - 20 minutes before returning to the bathroom. Then turn the shower OFF and allow the dehumidifier to run additional 5 minutes. Turn the unit OFF and check the bucket for signs of water. If you find some, the unit is working as it should.

If you find n water in the bucket. The unit's compressor probably needs a recharge of refrigerant gas.As the level may be low.

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

Need float switch that cuts off dehumidifer when bucket gets full

Without a Model Number or Part Number it's hard to help you. But here are three links, where you can find the float switch, if it's still available. You'll definitely need the Model Number to find anything.

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

Edison 40 Dehumidifier

Old post, but in case someone stumbles in here like i did, I need to point out that if an A/C needs to be recharged, then there has to be a leak somewhere, there is no use on recharging unless you find the place where is leaking.
