I have a Goldstar dehumidifier, Model DH305Y6. I bought it about 5 years ago at a local Walmart. During the summer I run it in the basement, here in south-central Pa. When it was brand new it worked very well, for about 2 yrs. Then it began turning on & off very irregularly. At first I thought it was the sensor on the front of the coils. So I moved it to the lower left side of the coils, and had the same results. The other day the water heater in the basement developed a leak. About 300 gals. of water covered the floor. After sumping/wet-vac'ing down to a wet carpet, I pulled out the dehumidifier and plugged it in,(the filter was cleaned before put away last summer). It began its on/off cycling again. It runs for about 2-3 mins., then shuts off for about 5-10 mins. So, I took the On/Off switch apart and read the resistance. It read 48k, for the 50k switch. I turned the switch all the way left to all the way right and it went from 48k, down to about 8k. The two wires to the switch were attached to the #2 and #3 poles,(only 3 poles). I did some testing, then removed the wires and re-soldered them to the #1 and #3 poles. I put everything back together, and now it works. It runs constantly, but it works/runs just fine. I need to get the basement dry, so I will let it run until the job is done. In the Spring I will get a new 50k potentiometer,(on/off switch), and see if that works. I will post results if I remember to.

Where do i find the model number for an older model goldstar dehumidifier and where can i buy a hose to connect it directly to the sump pump?


Any garden hose will fit the drain connection on your dehumidifier. However, the hose can not be longer than 5 feet. As the drainage relies entirely on gravity to drain. Connecting it directly to a sump pump is not a good solution. Allowing the hose to drain into the sump pump's water collection tank is your only option.

Hope this helped you.

/my dehumidifier has a hose attachment on the back. how does that work?


The hose attachment is used in place of the water collection bucket, to drain the water directly into a floor drain or a sump pump holding tank. A garden hose is connected to the "hose attachment" and run to the floor drain or sump pump holding tank. However, it will not drain UP, only DOWN.

Hope this helped.

Sound like you need a good cleaning of the evap and condensor. The make sure the fan is running. If nothing runs then check your thermostat.

Dh305y6 keeps shutting of within minutes


sounds like you need to replace your humidistat control. this is just like a thermostat on an air conditioning system, except inside of sensing temp and turning off, it senses humidity and turns off.

Dh305y6 won't start tried different outlets won't start


Nothing on display? Remove panels and get to circuit board. Look for loose solder connection on the fuse, etc. Resolder any bad connections. Then turn it on. Let me know.

Dehumidifier will not shut off


The auto shut off will work when you have your bucket in, as well when you have met the humidy level which you have chosen. Try changing the setting.

Vertical draining


Water only runs down hill. To accomplish your task you would need a small condensate pump to get the vertical lift to transfer to your sump. as an example "http://www.hartell.com/corp/details/0,,CLI1_DIV32_ETI3740,00.html"

Connecting a drain hose


Most units have a drain connection, either on the machine itself, or in the collection pail. These connections usually fit standard garden hoses.
