Re: Control panel lights up-nothing else happens

First check that the bucket is in properly. then remove bucket and push red button with finger with the unit on. if you are still getting a red alarm light it might be time to change the control panel. also unit does not work the same in cold weather. it will cycle too often. unit better used in summer-------good luck

When full bucket light comes on water is emptied and bucket put back in position. Fan will start and then the full bucket light comes back on beeps and shuts off.

You have to be sure bucket is replaced exactly where it should go or the bucket will hold the switch in, thinking it is full. If you have a floor drain close by,remove the bucket and set the dehumidifier over or next to drain so water will go down it,then you don't worry about bucket getting full.If it doesn't run with bucket off, maybe defective switch. unhook wires to the bucket switch and hook or tape together,if dehumidifier runs then switch is bad. UNPLUG FROM OUTLET BEFORE DOING THIS. IF YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND ELECTRICITY GET QUALIFIED HELP!!

My dehumidifier keeps beeping??????

The water tank is either full or not positioned correctly. Empty the tank and/or make sure it is positioned correctly (should fit perfectly and not bump out from rest of unit).

If you have it connected to the drain directly, your tank may still be filling up unless you have the PUMP button pressed (and PUMP is showing in the LED screen).

Good luck and please rate me.

Water full alarm

Hi, There should be a little actuating rod poking down from the roof of the bucket chamber which contacts the bucket-float at one end and a microswitch at the other. The microswitch
must be activated to make the compressor and fan run.
Check this if you can to see whether this rod or lever is present, absent, lying on the floor or just plain stuck. If it is stuck in the "full" position then you'll probably have found the problem.

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills.
If they do not, please hold off on the rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to
help you further. Cheers, D
