    I have same problem-the unit will not operate as it shows the reservoir full with light flashing.I tried physically moving the switch ON-OFF that the floats is in contact with.Holding switch in "empty position"The unit goes on for a minute then shuts off with "full Light flashing.I'm hoping for solution to fix the problem at home.

    damion stated that he held the float control. Seating the drain container is NOT the problem. I have the exact same problem: when I plug the unit in, the green light comes on for a few seconds, the full light blinks and the enunciator blinks. After about 3 seconds, the green light goes off and the enunciator stops, but the full light continues to blink. Even if the float switch is manipulated manually there is no difference. Any other suggestions?

We've had dozens of these in for more serious work but I noticed that the drain container on them has to be shoved in all the way in order to satisfy the control. What I do to get some peace while working on them is shove a small piece of styrofoam into the opening on the upper right where the tab in drain container goes in. Alternatively, if the mechanism needs adjustment you could bend the metal actuator bracket forward just a bit

Hi I have problems with my mitsubishi dehumidifier Oasis Elite MJ-E-142NX-A1 The water tank full light stays on even though the tank is empty. I have emptied the water and replaced the container care


Sounds like your float is stuck in the full position, or the sensor that shows full is stuck on full.
If tank is empty but shows full, problem lies where full signal is coming from.

FULL LIGHT FLASHES


An automatic overflow switch and Container “Full” indicator light are provided to turn the
dehumidifier off before the container overflows. When the indicator light on the control panel
glows, the water container must be emptied. If the light remains on and the dehumidifier does
not begin to operate make sure the float is attached to the water container.


When the condensate water container is full, the indicator lights up.
1. Turn the power off before removing container. Wait 3 minutes for
any remaining water to drain into the condensate container.
2. Tilt the container forward then lift carefully by the handle.
3. Empty and gently re-insert the container.
Important:This water is not suitable for drinking.

Please rate and god bless:)
