How much water do I put in water bucket on this thing?

You don"t put anything into the bucket. A dehumidifier will fill the bucket for you.

Amana D965e-e dehumidifier leaking

I encountered a similar problem (using the bucket, but still getting water leaking onto the floor) with my 970E-E. The problem is a design flaw. If the bucket is not firmly pressed into the dehumidifier, there is a slight air gap between the bucket and the dehumidifier on the left side. Within the gap, warm moist environmental air cools. Water condenses in the gap and pools up at the bottom of the bucket shelf, eventually spilling over onto the floor. You can check and see if this is your problem by pulling out the bucket and inspecting for droplets along the left side of the bucket shelf. My solution was the bungie the bucket into the shelf firmly so that there is no air gap.

Zenith Model ZD300YO 30 pt Dehumidifier Humidity setting panel reads 01/bucket full light flickering on and off- will not run, new unit

Take out bucket. Remove front cover two screws bottom left and right. Just inside lower left is a wiring harness with a clamp. Pry off and clean rust from clamp and tubing it attaches to. (if you put the bucket in and hold sensor between fingers the humidifier will start to work) Reattach clean sensor to clean copper tubing.

How do I switch from continuous drain to draining into the bucket? I have a Danby Pro dehumidifier. Thanks Tyler

Disconnect the hose and reattach the hose connection drain cap, that was removed when the hose was attached. The water will then be diverted into the water collection bucket

Hope this helped you, Tyler and thanks for choosing FixYa.

In the water collection tank area a arm with awheel attached fell off i dont know where it came from

Ken, that is the float valve, that sits inside the (I believe) the top right side of the bucket. It shuts the unit OFF automatically, when the bucket is full. Hopefully, it just fell off and didn't break off. The wheel end, fits inside the bucket and the shorter part of the 'U" shaped arm fits over the back of the bucket, so that it makes contact with bucket removal safety switch. If it broke off, it will have to be replaced. In some cases, the whole bucket assembly has to me replaced. Since your model has been discontinued, it would be best to contact Danby's Consumer help line: 800-263-2629 to obtain the necessary part(s)

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual I have included a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference.

Can't find where to empty the water

I need to be clear on what you said. you "can't find where to empty the water." Meaning you have removed the water collection bucket and don't know where to empty it? If that's the case, emptying it in a bath tub, is the easiest way.

However, if you meant, you don't know how to remove the water collection tank. It's on the front of the unit, below the air intake louvers. It simply slides/pulls out of the dehumidifier, when you pull on the indented handles on both sides of the bucket.

To assist you further, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual to a Danby model similar to yours. You can download and print it for future reference.

I hope this helped you.

This usually caused by one of two things. The bucket is not installed properly or the float valve in the bucket is stuck in the UP position. The float valve is not in all models.

Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it. Remove the bucket, look in the top of the bucket on the left side closest to you. If you see a float valve you have that model. If the float is in the UP position, jiggle it so that it will return to the down position. Then reinstall the bucket. Plug the cord back in and turn the unit ON.

If you don't have a float valve, make sure, when you reinstall the bucket, that it fits "squarely" into the holder from top to bottom. When installed properly, the bottom of the bucket should not tilt down at all. The top, back side of the bucket must make firm contact with the bucket removal safety switch.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

I acquired used Amcor AHD65 Dehumidifier a couple days ago. I was told that it is just beyond the warranty period. I assume that it is a barely a year old. However, It worked this evening a sort since it...

You may still have some packaging materials left inside the unit. The plastic pan doesn't stay in side the bucket. It's used as a drain pan on the outside. Also, be sure the air intake filter is in place, is clean and there are no packaging materials behind it.

To extract more humidity, after checking all the things mentioned above. Lower the extraction level to 32 to 35%. Lower percentages means extraction of more humidity. (i.e.200% -35% = 5% drop in humidity).

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

My DeLonghi dehumidifier is collecting water but not into the bucket. Rather it leaks it all on the floor. I have cleaned the filter and even the coils to no avail. Please help.

The drain tube that drains the water into the bucket is clogged and needs to be cleared.

To do this, you will need at least an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar. (But, NO wire coat hangers) that will fit into the drain tube or hole. Carefully work the Zip Tie into the hole or tube and gently push it forward. You will reach a bend in the tubing, but you will have to gingerly work past this bend. Once the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of Zip Tie. slowly pull it back out while rotating it. This will help breakup the clog. Once you start reaching the end of the inserted Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow.

The above procedure should solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Water bucket - proper seating

Try re-seating the bucket. I have found some LG models that if not seated all of the way will sometimes keep running and think the bucket is not full even when it is. On the models that I have seen do it the problem is usually the left side of the bucket not engaging all of the way. When you reseat the bucket, feel where the bucket meets the dehumidifier on each side and make sure they are even. If one feels like it is sticking out further than the other and you cannot push it in any more pull the bucket out and try and reseat it again until both sides are flush with the dehumidifier. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.

Thanks - Tech101
