I just bought a Danby Dehumidifier model: DDR6009REE The fan runs constantly even when the humidity setting is reached and the compressor is off. has anyone patched the power for the fan by putting...


All new generation dehumidifiers are designed to have the fans run all the time and the compressor comes on when the relitive humidity rises above the setting that you have chosen. I spoke with the company and asked them why this is so, and they told me that it is more energy efficient to have the machine on all the time so that when the compressor kicks in there is a small draw on electricity.
Apparently when the old dehumidifiers came on it was the compressor that turned on immediately, and the fan, and this caused a very high current draw. The new design has the fan on all the time and this helps to circulate the air evenly around the area being dehumidified - thus more efficient overall coverage.
I understood their explanation, but still do not like this new method of operation.

Apparently, the plastic fan is broken into many pieces and condensor is really hot. Is this worth fixing or buying new one?


Hi,
You can maybe buy a new fan... but till you buy the fan and then install it for a unit that costs only a few hundred bucks...well you get the picture...you still have an old unit also...

Plugged in, light on, don't hear fan running. What's wrong? On the previous, but same model we could hear the fan running but on the new one we bought we don't hear it.

Fan will not come on.


The fan has to run if the compressor is running as the fan assists in removing the heat from the condenser coil. Can you spin the fan by hand? If there is full power(120 volts) to the fan and it isn't running then the fan motor is bad. Also, if the fan motor has a run capacitor this could keep the fan from running(if the capacitor is defective) so look for this first.

My new Danby dehumidifier never shuts off


This unit is designed with the intention of the fan running all the time. The compressor cycles on and off with demand, however the fan runs continuously to provide constant room circulation.

DE 500P - Fan will not shut off


If you have the fan icon selected, it is supposed to run continuously. If you use the mode button (not the fan button) to change to relative humidity (the water drop icon), the fan should only run with the dehumidifier.

Fan does not come on


I've seen abunch of these. The fan motor has a fuse wound into the windings. It cannot be replaced you need a new fan motor. The motors seem to run hot normally, leading to a short lifespan.
 I suggest buying a better brand unit.
