In plain English, the Percentage setting on your de-humidifier is the percentage of moisture that you want to maintain in the air. Relative humidity level range from about 10% (VERY dry air) to almost 100% (VERY damp air). When relative humidity is 100%, water vapor in the air will turn into rain, condensation, dew, snow or frost. 50% humidity is usually a comfortable level, but that will also depend on air temperature. The more moisture there is in the air, the warmer it feels and conversely. Warm air will hold more moisture than cooler air.

Your body is cooled when moisture on your skin evaporates into the air, carrying body heat with it. As the humidity in the air rises, less of your body moisture is able to evaporate and thus your body feels wamer. Lower humidty allows moisture from your body to evaporate more quickly and you feel cooler, both at the exact same temperature.

Dehumidifier runs but does not remove moisture. Why?


probably the ac section to cool the humidifier is not working
for a de-humidifer to work there has to be a cold surface to condense the water vapour in the air
if there is no ac unit ,it will still need that temperature difference to work or a sufficient humidity in the air to work

An integrated de-humidifier is normally a cycling Air Conditioner. If the one on the furnace has a water line running to it, shut the water off and see what happens.

I just purchaed a DE Series Dehumidifier. The instructions say to press the arrows keys to adjust the humidistat, but whenever I push the arrows the display reads "on". So I don't know what...


It is not abnormal for ON to show up when you first push the arrow up or arrow down button. If you want to lower the humidity press the arrow down button again, once the ON lights up. The lower you take the percentage the more humidity will be removed.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Our dehumidifier turns on for only a few seconds, then shuts off.


Wendy, it's probably because the humidity level on the unit is set higher than the humidity level in the house. Keep in mind, the humidity level you set the control to, is not the amount extracted from the air. It's the level you want it to maintain. The higher the percentage level, the more humidity stays in the house. The lower the percentage level, the more humidity it removes, until the lower humidity level is reached. Then the humidifier will automatically shut OFF and/or the unit shuts OFF, because the bucket is full. Once it's emptied and replaced, if the unit needs to continue to extract humidity, it will start running again.

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

I have a kenmore dehumidifier (about 2 years old), and i've found that after i turn the unit on and it is running for 2-3 minutes, it will then shut down even though no water has collected in the tray. any...


My first thought is that there's not enough moisture/humidity in the air, for the setting you have the humidifier set on. The higher the setting or percentage (i.e. 60%) means that the level you want to maintain. Which may be find in the cod winter months. In the Hot summer months, you want as low a level of humidity as possible (i.e. 45%).

My second thought is that the air intake filter and the coolant coils need cleaning, since it has been used in 2 years. It's just sat around gathering dust and spiders.

And finally, the collection bucket, may not be inserted properly and when the unit starts up the vibration dislodges the bucket just enough, so that it's not making contact with the safety switch. Sometimes when this happens, the Full light indicator will come ON, even if the bucket is empty.

Hope this helps you to start troubleshooting the problem. Please let me know.

De Longhi DE220 De-Humidifier not collecting water


Hi there - you have to vacuum the filter several times. You can pull it out of the back left hand side of the unit. Vacuum it several times, and then start the unit on the lower fan setting, at a humidity level of around 60%. It will kick in after a bit, and then you can start adjusting the humidity level to where you would normally use it.

Sometimes - after you have vacuumed the filter, it still doesn't work. I used my fingers to pick lint off the filter, and ran a BIC safety razor over it as well, to try and get more out of the filter. You can also wash the filter in warm water, and leave it to dry over night. Don't put it back in until it's completely dry.

This will work! Cheers... E
