This dehumidifier is built in such a way that the fan runs all the time;however the compressor works only when it is needed. These infos are not specified in the booklet. It does not work like the old ones.

Set timer to 5 hours running. How long does it stay off before turning back on for another 5 hrs


Once the timer turns the unit ON and it runs for 5 hours and turns OFF, you have to manually restart it again. It will not turn back ON automatically,

I have a Danby DDR5009REE Dehumidifier-is there any way to put a timer on it? I feel like it can't be good for it to run all the time and it is hard for me to get to the basement. I am not sure if I...


Actually, you don't need to add a timer. The model you have already has a timer built in. On the unit itself, as well as the hand held remote. So you can set it either way. Set the amount of time you want it to run, when it reaches that time, it will shut Off automatically. One of the most important things to remember is to clean the air intake regularly. At least once every two weeks.

I have a DDR7009EE and the fan runs continuously even when the humidity in the room is below the setting on the machine. Shouldn't the fan stop when the desired humidity is reached?


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.

I have a Danby Silhouette and the fan works but the dehumidifier doesnt.


Bryan, it may imply be a case of the humidity extraction level being set to high. Lower the level to 35% and see what happens. As far as the fan running is concerned. Most dehumidifiers are designed for the fan to run, even if the compressor doesn't turn ON. It's designed to keep the air circulating and if the humidity rises above the setting you have it on, the humidity sensor will pick up this change and turn the compressor ON.

Also, remove the air intake filter to see if it's clogged and needs cleaning. Maintain at least a minimum of 12" of free air space all around the dehumidifier. Poor air circulation will prevent the unit from working properly. As will, to low an ambient air tempeature. Most unit struggle to work at temperature between 40 & 60 degrees F.

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

P1 constantly goes on throughout the day. I do not know if I have the setting right or if the drain hose is connected properly.


First, the drain hose should not be longer than 5 feet and should be draining downward, with no kings or bends in the hose, The dehumidifier does not have a pump. It relies on gravity to drain the water.

As far as it running all day is concerned, some dehumidifiers have a "Constant" or "Continual" setting. Which means it runs constantly. Either while dehumidifying or defrosting. In addition, most Danby dehumidifier models are designed to have the fan run even when the compressor is not running. This is in order to circulate the air in the room and make the unit work more efficiently. This is a standard feature and cannot be programmed to stop.

Hope this answered you questions.

Compressor stops at proper humidity % but the fan keeps running.


Dehumidifiers are built that way. They keep moving air so it is able to keep any change of conditions moving around the room. On a dehumidifier, it the fan stops, your unit will short cycle becasue water will naturally evaporate from the water tank and it would turn on, then off, then on then off. The way it runs now is fine. Running the fan 24 hours on your dehumidifier cost nickels a day. Just let run.

My Danby Dehumidifier has stopped drawing water even though the fan kicks in. Do you have any suggestions? The fan has been cleaned and the humidity setting is 35.

I just bought a Danby Dehumidifier model: DDR6009REE The fan runs constantly even when the humidity setting is reached and the compressor is off. has anyone patched the power for the fan by putting...


All new generation dehumidifiers are designed to have the fans run all the time and the compressor comes on when the relitive humidity rises above the setting that you have chosen. I spoke with the company and asked them why this is so, and they told me that it is more energy efficient to have the machine on all the time so that when the compressor kicks in there is a small draw on electricity.
Apparently when the old dehumidifiers came on it was the compressor that turned on immediately, and the fan, and this caused a very high current draw. The new design has the fan on all the time and this helps to circulate the air evenly around the area being dehumidified - thus more efficient overall coverage.
I understood their explanation, but still do not like this new method of operation.

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.
