The drainage port on the dehumidifier seems to clog and the basin fills up instead of the water draining out the hose .The filter is kept clean
You diagnosed the problem correctly. It occurs more than you would thin.
To solve the problem turn the unit OFF & Unplug it. If the hose is still connected to it, disconnect the hose and check it for clogs, first. If it's clear mob=ve on to the unit itself.
Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic
Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connector hole and 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 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 the hose for water flow..
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 and thanks for choosing FixYa.
