Does not shut off when tank full, water leaks all over the floor if I don't watch it constantly

Sounds like the float valve inside tank may be stuck in closed position. Calcium buildup is very common. Good luck Juliana. Unplug and empty tank of any water and look for the float valve it should be near top of tank. Use a small bucket and mix vinegar and water and brush. Scrub that valve. Clean it up

I have a delongji DEM 10 dehumidifier and it keeps switching to pause, I have cleaned filter switched off for a while but it still won't come on

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Unless you are licensed and qualified professional, do not try to repair a dehumidifier by yourself. If your unit is running constantly yet there is no water in the tank, try lowering the temperature control. If the problem persists, there may be a problem within the refrigeration system. You may need to pull the filter and clean it. Also try wiping off the unit itself. When the water tank is full, the unit will shut off and will not run until the tank is emptied. The dehumidifier shuts off by a safety switch in the back of the unit. If the switch is not working properly, you may try manually pressing the button or slightly bending the switch.
    Motor If the fan motor is damaged or will not work, no cool air will be coming out of the dehumidifier. The unit, however, may still run. You may need to replace the motor. If the coils in the back of the dehumidifier constantly freeze, try turning off the unit for an hour or re-locating the unit to a higher position to allow the room to heat up. If your water tank is constantly full and you are emptying it on a daily basis, you may have a water leak somewhere in the room with the dehumidifier.

    Where is the float

    Don't know your model specifically, but the float is usually at the top of your water tank and activates the system to shut down by popping up when the tank is full. With some tanks you can actually reach in and sort of clean off the float. Jelly-like stuff can build up on the float after a number of years. Cleaning it off wouldn't hurt.

    Water overflows when filled how do I adjust?

    Remove the tank and locate the switch and 'teeter' (that the tank sits on). Make sure the tank is able to move when filled. You will have to adjust the position of the switch to allow the filled (teetered) tank to shut the device off.

    Is it possible for you to drain the water into a nearby floor drain using a hose?

    Thanks for your question @

    Attached a pump to drain collected water. The

    the water should still collect into the tank. the dehumidifier had a float switch that shut the unit off when the tank is full. In turn it should have a second switch, probably a float switch that turns the pump on and off so that the pump doesnt continue to run when there is no moisture in the tank

    Check the point on the tank (Bucket) where the hose connects to. Make sure there is no obstruction at the outlet of the bucket to the hose connection. Next make sure the hose has no kinks or no loops that may trap air to the drain. If necessary for a long run to the place of drainage raise the dehumidifier to a higher level for better drainage.

    Danby DDR451 water tank

    I had this to. Check to see if there is any packing tape just above the tank. The tape on mine was not tapping the tank shut; it had been there for a year (not interfering with anything), but i pulled it all out anyways, and the tank let go!

    that's what worked for me... hope this helps
