I had this problem on a similar model. There is a pressure switch the tank when full pushes in, sometimes mine would stick. A little graphite for key locks was my remedy. Had to clean it up some though. Good luck!

Water overflows when filled how do I adjust?

Remove the tank and locate the switch and 'teeter' (that the tank sits on). Make sure the tank is able to move when filled. You will have to adjust the position of the switch to allow the filled (teetered) tank to shut the device off.

Is it possible for you to drain the water into a nearby floor drain using a hose?

Thanks for your question @

Where do i find the model number for an older model goldstar dehumidifier and where can i buy a hose to connect it directly to the sump pump?

Any garden hose will fit the drain connection on your dehumidifier. However, the hose can not be longer than 5 feet. As the drainage relies entirely on gravity to drain. Connecting it directly to a sump pump is not a good solution. Allowing the hose to drain into the sump pump's water collection tank is your only option.

Hope this helped you.

Hello. I have the Goldstar Dehumidifier Model DH305 - This is the third summer I used it. I only use in the summer. I clean and take very good care of this machine. I went to use it this year and it came...


It has high and low fan speeds, variable humidity controls including 'Max', and automatic shut-off with indicator when the reservoir is full.

so pls recheck the automatic shut-off when the reservoir is full .

may be the automatic shut-off botten are stymed.

good luck

I need to know how to attach a hose to the Goldstar DH305 Humidifier

There should be a spot on the water tank, that is threaded to fit a hose, but is blocked by a piece of plastic. You must remove the plastic "plug", the connect a hose to it. Also there is a "special" part that could be used. This part can be found at, and I am sure other places also. I hope this helps

No Power

Only if ground wire had tuch something that was hot. Does your unit have a ground fault plug. If so reset plug. Sometimes thay go bad if you have had a storm in the area.

Will not run or turn on light will not turn on

Had a similar problem with Goldstar model DH305. A solution was already posted about cutting the two white wire going to humidity control, and it works until tray fills up (no control). However, if you want a complete fix which allows you to control by selecting humidity level go to the following site:

Goldstar dehumidifier

The hose connector does not drain the bucket, it drains the condensate before it enters the bucket. Tube passes through back of dehumidifier by the cord wrap area. (you may have to remove a small cover)

Freeze up in back & does not drain

Usually due to dirty filters or maybe a drain tube blocked.. Or sometimes the casing is damaged & the lining has moisture in it. Therefore when the device is running, it freezes the moisture in the lining.. If it's the drain tube, you might be able to clean it with a long bit of wire & some bleach.. That can kill any mold thats grown in the drain.. Let me know how you go..
