If you are in a very humid room or area it will not shut of until it reaches desired humidity% level that is set. If it is reaching the set level and not turning off I would return it.

I have a brand new dehumidifier (properly sized) that is running 24 hours/day and producing some water (roughly 1L).


with a reading of 66 to 67 % rh this is a bit low for normal rooms humidity , I cant see why you'd want to try to get it down to 55% unless its for a special purpose (drying paint?) , I get this question a lot from folks , what I tell em is if you set your airconditioner in your home down to 30 degrees would your house ever get that cold = "no " the houses ability to heat itself is greater than the a/c units ability to cool it (even if its properly sized) so why would you expect a small appliance like a dehumidifier to be able to do any different ? all you end up doing is over working the appliance and costing you extra money in lost power
the general excepted room humidity is 70% rh this is a industry standard ,that all appliances are designed to achieve , and yes as the room gets dryer it will extract less and less water from air

Dehumid....ad70usso....runs all the time auto settings don't seem to working collects fine ..but won't turn off when air is dry thanks


There are 4 basic, but solvable reason for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2. Also, keep in mind, basements stay moister longer than upper rooms.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35% and disable the auto mode.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

If you just plugged it in and started it up, you may have failed to set the humidity extraction level. Which is different from the factory settings. If you want to remove great deal of humidity, lower the setting to 35%. Keep in mind, the lower the setting the more humidity/moisture will be removed from the household air. The higher the setting less will be removed.

As far as the unit beiing warm is concerned ... Be sure to maintain at least a minimum of 12" clear air space all around the unit while in operation. Do not operate the dehumidifier in direct sun light.

Also, make sure all the packing material has been removed from the interior of the unit. This will block the airflow and cause the unit to overheat. If it does overheat, it should shutoff automatically. But, don't confuse that with normal automatic shutoff (i.e water collection bucket full, timed cycle has ended, no more humidity to remove from the air, etc.)

When all else fails, consult the owner's Manual.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

Dehumidifier automatic on and off function not working


Unless you live in a dry environment or place the unit in a hermetically sealed room, it probably will not turn off. As the air dries within the room, more moisture comes in with the air. As long as the air outside of the room is more humid than the room this will be true.

De Longhi DE220 De-Humidifier not collecting water


Hi there - you have to vacuum the filter several times. You can pull it out of the back left hand side of the unit. Vacuum it several times, and then start the unit on the lower fan setting, at a humidity level of around 60%. It will kick in after a bit, and then you can start adjusting the humidity level to where you would normally use it.

Sometimes - after you have vacuumed the filter, it still doesn't work. I used my fingers to pick lint off the filter, and ran a BIC safety razor over it as well, to try and get more out of the filter. You can also wash the filter in warm water, and leave it to dry over night. Don't put it back in until it's completely dry.

This will work! Cheers... E

Humidifier not taking out water


I have the same problem. I have had the unit less than a month. Haier's policy is for me to pay $14.99 so they can send me another one. What a huge ripoff.
