Question about Dehumidifiers
Humidity is said to be good at 50% RH and temerature at 77*F. Air looses humidity when it is heated or cooled. Extremely humid conditionals it difficult for air conditioners to cool the air.
The temperature to be comfortable in varies from person to person.

I have the same problem, just started it after not using it for the winter and it runs and runs and no water. I believe the coolant has leaked from the sealed system and there is nothing you can do. I've had it for 1 year and it has a 5 year warranty. I know from experience, this is the 3rd dehumidifier that I have had this problem with, all different brands. Call for service, I am betting you have not had it very long.

If the humidity level is at or lower than 30%, the unit won't turn ON, until the reaches 35 - 40%. It's rare for the sensors to go bad. Just keep in mind, the dehumidifier is reading the humidity near the floor, not up at say, chest level. Humidity levels change every season, so this really would not be that unusual. Make sure that your clean the air intake filter regularly. Cleaning and wiping down the coolant coils would be a good idea, too..
Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

Lyle, your particular model is designed for the fan to function constantly. However, the fan running doesn't mean the compressor is always running. The reason the unit was designed this way, is for the air to be continually moving, and when the humidity sensor picks up a rise in the humidity level (above where you have it set) the compressor will turn ON and extract that humidity.
Your unit is working as it should. Thanks for choosing FixYa.
