Your pump hose may be damaged or the adapter that connects the small hose to the pump may be loose. The pump itself may be damaged as well. Unfortunately this means that the unit must be partially disassembled in order to access the pump and associated tubing. The pump is located on the bottom of the dehumidifier next to the fan.

You can call Therma-stor service at 1-800-533-7533 for specific advice on your dehumidifier.

SOURCE: My model is Frig. Dehumidifier,

Check the float valve in the top of the bucket. It may be stuck in the UP position. If that the case, jiggle the float valve arm to get it to return to the DOWN position. That should solve the problem.

Hose connected but not draining and bucket filling

I am also an air conditioning tech, with same problem and same soleus dehumidifier problem. you must remove the plug and install the drain line hose adapter. Hose must lay flat and have no "hills" for water to drain. With this done pull your drain pan out and set aside. look under right side facing the dehumidifier and you will see a small spout. Has a lip like a little tea pot. Plug that spout. I used a foam ear plug used in work shops. Now give the front of dehumidifier a slight rise on front wheels about the thickness of a pies of cardboard 1/8 to 3/16 of an inch. Now put drain pan back in an start up. The problem is the drain pan was made with very little differance in pitch between the the hose drain and the bucket drain. Remember to check your drain hose periodically and the air filter also. Good luck

Water leaks out of the bottom of the humidifier and the bucket does not fill up. The water just leaks out.

Based upon my experience with the same problem on my Kenmore 54701 last summer: The condensate water collects in a plastic pan below the coils. This pan has a single drain hole where the water flows down into the bucket. When I suddenly found water puddling on the floor instead of in the bucket, I opened up the unit, and I found that the collection pan's drain hole had become blocked by "bioslime". I cleaned out the goo from the drain hole, and the problem was solved.

Try cleaning the filter first. Pull it out and then wash it with water and let it dry overnight. Then clean the spigot/nozzle which fills the pan. This often becomes clogged with dust or debris or even insect webs. Once you wipe the nozzle with a rag, really clean it well with a finger. You should feel the rubber gasket at the end of the nozzle with your finger.

Likely the fill nozzle was just clogged so water drips along the top and down the sides of the pan instead of into it.

Good luck.

Water leaks from the bottom front under the bucket. Bucket does NOT leak. Attached a piece of tubing from the outlet to the bucket to no avail. still leaks. No visibe cracks anywhere.

Try cleaning the filter first. Wash it with water and let it dry overnight. Then make sure no debris is blocking the inside of the spiggot which fills the pan. The spiggot can get blocked by dust anddebris or insect webs. Clean thoroughly with a rag and your finger.

Water goes in reservoir, not thru hose to sump pump, leaking

blow some air thru the discharge line,, thats all it is the line is clogged, if the pan is filling with water, it is working but they do get clogged with dust and lint in the air,,
