You may have a older model that has a collector tank with a protruding tube on it. If so just cut the end off the tube and slide on a piece of clear 9.5mm internal diameter PVC / Rubber tubing suitable for a fish tank air / water pump and secure it with a nylon tie wrap.

Continuous external draining for newer models with clear collection tanks.
If the appliance is to be operated for long periods of time but you are unable to empty the tank, you are recommended to use the continuous drain facility.
• Drill the inside of the drain spout using a small drill bit. This is located behind the rear grlle in the lower centre of the opening.
• Fasten the rubber hose to the spout. For models without drain hoses supplied, we suggest you purchase a rubber hose around 2m long, with an internal diameter of 9.5 mm.
• Make sure that the hose is not higher than the spout, otherwise water will remain in the tank; also check that the hose is not twisted. N.B: Keep the rubber bung. You will need it to plug the hose or close the spout if you revert to draining into the tank

Just purchases the DD50PC. Set the pump to continuous, hooked the hose to the slop sink in basement approx 8 feet, pump running fine but when looked at it the next day the pump had shut off and the tank...


The reason this happened may be two fold. Either the hose is clogged or the length of hose is to long and then has to go up hill into the slop sink. The owner's Manual says the pump is rated for an 8 foot lift. However, what I have discovered is that rating, does not take friction loss in to account.

Try moving the unit closer to the sink and shorten the hose about a foot or two. Actually, a floor drain would be perfect, if you have one in your basement.

Hope this helped you ad thanks for choosing FixYa.

On a dehumidifer, you set the relative humidity, not temperature. Normally the humidity should be set within 40 to 60 percent humidity.

Dehumidifier isn't not removing humidity. Fan and lights are working, but the water container remains empty. It is not pulling water from air. I think that the heating element may not be working.

New Delonghi Dehumidifier,5 gal:When units beeps that bucket is full,what are exact steps to do 1st:empty bucket, then press what button to restart?or does it restart on its own?


It should resart on its own after putting the empty bucket back in. The beep is to let you know that the bucket full and it shuts off the humidifier until the bucket is emptied and put back into the proper position.

Had the same problem. Make sure you tighten the house a little with pliers. Also, make sure the dehumidifier is up a lot higher than where you're draining it into. Mine drains into a utility sink. But I have the dehumidifier propped up onto a dresser. I cut a small piece of hose to run into the sink. Seems to be working now.

It will take 5 min or so to establish a water flow, so be patient after you hook everything up. Good luck.

DeLonghi 50 Pint dehumidifier DE 500P won't turn back on


If it is not responding when you try to activate the shutoff button and are still not recieving an acknowledgement that the bucket is full you may hav a defective shutoff button. Try contacting the Manufacturer and see if you can purchase just the button. This i a common part and the price is usually reasonable. If you feel very technical inclined you can remove the button and touch the 2 wires together simulating a closed contact. The dehumidifier should now acknowledge the bucket is full. If you recieve the notification then the button is bad. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.
