    Bucket full switch is bent or faulty. Take bucket out, push switch back; light should go off. Press start; may be a delay before fan turns on.I bypassed the switch and attached hose to the bucket: cut two blue wires, stripped and twisted together. Or replace switch if you need bucket full shut off safety feature.

Sorry to say but the bucket level sensors on these tend to be a bit tricky , it seems theres two possible holes the piviot point for float can go in , only one is correct for sensor to hit right , but both allow float to swing , and there not marked either

Try cleaning out the air filter using cold water. I did not even know the unit had one until I had the same problem. Pull out the bucket. The filter is located where the front top edge of the bucket would be located if it were in the instrument. Remove it by pulling straight down. It may be taped to the instrument for shipping purposes. According to the manual, this should be done every month. I have had the machine since Katrina and this is the first time I have had a problem. Hope this helps.

My Goldstar DH305 is leaking water. I've cleaned the filter and coils and have taken the bucket out and put it back to be sure that it is in properly but it is still leaking.


Terryle. the problem may very well be a clog in the drain tube to the bucket. Even a partial blockage can cause it. Follow the instructions below to resolve the problem.

1. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF & Unplug the unit.

2. Remove the water collection bucket from it's holder and set it aside.

3. Inside the top of the bucket holder cavity, you should see a small tube or hole that drains water
into the bucket.

4. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though) that is
appropriately sized to fit into the hole or tubing. Carefully insert the tip of the Zip Tie into the hole
and continue to insert it, until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly, work the
Zip Tie past this bend. Until it bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly remove
the Zip Tie while rotating (twisting) it. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared,
as some water may follow.

5. Reinsert the bucket into it holder, making sure that it fits "squarely" from top to bottom into the
holder. Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set you humidity
extraction control on 32 to 35%. If you have a manually controlled unit, set it on Maximum and
take it for a test drive. In about 30 minutes or so, you should be able to tell if it's still leaking or
not.

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

MY LG MODEL # LD450EAL HAS THE FULL BUCKET LIGHT BLINKING AND THE BUCKET IS EMPTY AND HAS BEEN CHECKED TO MAKE SURE THAT IT HAS BEEN REINSTALLED PROPERLY BUT IT STILL DOES NOT STOP BLINKING AND THE UNIT...


Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall. Remove the bucket and check inside the top of the bucket for a Float Valve (some Haier unit have them) It may be stuck in the UP position. If so, jiggle the arm of the float vale to get it to return to the DOWN position. Reinstall the bucket again. However, leave the unit OFF & unplugged for 10 minutes, before plugging it back in and turning it ON. Whether you have a float valve of not, the 10 minute time out, should have given the unit's electronics time to reset themselves.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Just stopped working. When I turn unit on the power light comes on for about 2 seconds then goes off, nothing else happens. Any ideas?


It may simply be that the water collection bucket is not installed properly or the air intake filter is clogged.

Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Remove the air intake filter and clean it, if necessary. While the unit is unplugged and OFF, remove the water collection bucket and reinstall it. Making sure that the bucket fits "squarely" from top to bottom, in the bucket holder. It must make contact with the bucket safety removal switch, to activate the unit. Once you have reinstalled the bucket, make sure the bottom of the bucket is not tilting downward.

If you cleaned the filter, be sure it is totally dry, before reinstalling it. Then plug the unit back in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and if everything was done correctly, the unit should start and run. DO NOT OPERATE THE UNIT, WITHOUT THE AIR INTAKE FILTER INSTALLED.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

UNIT ICED UP. TEMP. IN CRAWL SPACE ABOVE 60 DEGREES. AFTER DE-ICING UNIT IT RAN FOR A WHILE AND THEN STOPPED. IT SHOWS CODE CH 01AND THE BUCKET FULL LIGHT IS BLINKING, NOT STEADY ON. POWERED DOWN UNIT...


When you powered down the unit, did you just turn if OFF using the controls on the unit Or did you unplug it entirely? If you didn't unplug it, it won't reset itself. Leave it unplugged for at least 30 minutes. As far as the blinking bucket full light is concerned ... It's possible that the bucket is slightly out of kilter and is only making partial contact with the safety switch. Especially if it's sitting on uneven soil or when the bucket get partially full the weight of the bucket is pulling it out of kilter because it's sitting on soil, rather than a hard floor. If nothing else, place it on a 1/2" piece of plywood or OSB and level it.

To be totally candid, I have some concerns about leaving a dehumidifier running, unattended in the crawl space of a house. There's to many things that could go wrong that would have disastrous results.

We had a hose attached to empty into a drain, but the hose came loose. Now it won't run because it shows the bucket is full.


Was the hose attached to the bucket or directly attached to the inside of the humidifier?
If it was to the bucket, the hose may have slightly pulled the bucket out of place, disengaging the safety switch. Unplug the unit and wait 5 minutes. Then plug the unit back in. Turn it to ON and remove the bucket and carefully reinstall it. You should hear a "click" sound when it's properly in place and the unit should start back up,

Hope this helps to solve your problem.

After you removed the bucket to empty it, did you make sure the bucket was reinstalled properly so the it made contact with the reset switch? If not, that's more than likely the problem. Remove the bucket and reinstall it carefully. If all else fails, unplug the unit, wait 5 minutes and plug it back in. Thta may help to reset it.

Zenith ZD30 dehumidifier - 1 1/2 years old stopped working had a half bucket oc colledted water in bucket when it stopped. I checked the fuse on the circuit board and have continuity.


Unplug from wall. Take the front cover off and disconnect the 2 wires that attach to the humidity control dial. Plug back in. If it works, the problem is the humidty control dial (mine just went bad). With it unhooked, it will run constantly, but will still turn off when the bucket is full. To turn off, simply unplug.

Danby continuous water flow will not work on a dehumidifier it still fills the bucket


Please try the following:
1) Remove the bucket.
2) You will notice a round outlet/spout where the water drips from into the bucket.
3) Remove the plug from the backside of the unit (you will now see a hole to the bucket area).
4) Feed a hose through the hole from the back and attach the end of the hose to the round outlet/spout.
5) Place the other end of the hose on a floor drain outlet.
6) Put the bucket back into the unit.

When the unit is turned on, the water will now flow through the hose instead (into the floor drain). When you want to use the bucket again to capture the water, you will need to remove the hose.

I hope that helps.
