SOURCE: User Manual has no guidelines.

When you first turn on the unit it is set to 40% humidity which is the lowest the unit will accept. You can only move the up arrow from that point. The 63 you are seeing is the actual humidity. If you want 50% youo need to press up arrow till 50 is displayed. The manual for this unit is terrible. Just leave it as it is and it will attempt to bring it down to 40%. 30 to 50 is the recommended humidity range.

SOURCE: red full light blinks, humidity

I just now noticed this posting even though it is now November. I will post this in case you still have the dehumidifier & haven't solved the problem yet, or for those who may be searching for a solution later.

The 01 code & the blinking light indicates that the defrost sensor is probably shorted. Replace the sensor assembly with part #6877A30013L. It includes the humidity sensor & defrost thermistor & plugs onto the main circuit board for an easy repair. Sears lists it on their website for 9.99 + shipping.

SOURCE: 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.

Check to see if the styrofoam is still in the lever of the shut off arm. It's atop the water reservoir. If there is nothing there it will not float causing the arm not to shut off.

Cannot set humidity level to anything other than 50.

Is it reading the room humidity, rather than showing the set point? Check the manual.

When the humidity set point is reached, the compressor shuts off but the fan continues to run. Is this normal?

Chucke - Depending on which mode you're operating the unit in (Continual Mode), yes that is normal.The fan continues to run in an effort to recirculate the air. If it senses a rise in humidity above the level you have it set on, the compressor will turn and remove that humidity.

Hope this helped you.

Just purchased a Danby dehumidifier (model # DDR6O11R). I was wondering when the dehumidifier reaches the programmed level of humidity (example: 40%). Is the unit suppose to shut off completely? I believe...

Depending on which mode you have the unit set on, will determine if it shots OFF entirely or the fan continues to run. In the Constant or Continual mode, the compressor will turn OFF, once the humidity extraction level has been reached. But, the fan will continue to operate, in an effort to keep the air circulating, so that if the humidity level rises, the compressor will turn ON and start extracting again.

In Timed Mode (usually 2 hour or 4 hour) , when the compressor turns OFF the fan does too.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

The unit turns out and runs fine. The fan blows. But the moisture is not being removed. I did insert a hose last fall and it worked fine then. Now it doesn't remove moisture with using the hose or...

You may have the humidity level set to high. If it's above 60%, that's what it's going to maintain, not remove. Set the humidity level on the lowest setting and try again. Whether you're using the hose or not, I don't suspect it's playing a role in it. Also, clean and reinstall the air intake filter.

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

Our dehumidifier turns on for only a few seconds, then shuts off.

Wendy, it's probably because the humidity level on the unit is set higher than the humidity level in the house. Keep in mind, the humidity level you set the control to, is not the amount extracted from the air. It's the level you want it to maintain. The higher the percentage level, the more humidity stays in the house. The lower the percentage level, the more humidity it removes, until the lower humidity level is reached. Then the humidifier will automatically shut OFF and/or the unit shuts OFF, because the bucket is full. Once it's emptied and replaced, if the unit needs to continue to extract humidity, it will start running again.

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

If you are in a very humid room or area it will not shut of until it reaches desired humidity% level that is set. If it is reaching the set level and not turning off I would return it.
