The water tray is probably not installed correctly. Take it out and reinsert it. It has to close a switch when it is in place.Mine at home is really touchy it has to be put in just right to work.

Humidifier does not turn on


if your saying that the voltage drops to around 4 volts at the supply transformer at anytime , then id say the load (device connected) is too much for the transformer to supply this most likely is caused by an internal fault in the load (humidifier) also since its a water appliance id say a water leak might be a factor in that as well , taking a look under the cover of the humidifier 4 signs of a water leak (or past one) would be where id start

My suggestion is to get an additional humidifier and run both. It sounds like it is at capacity. This was a cold winter and the additional heating put a large demand on the humidifiers.

When my dehumidifier is on, it says there is 90 humidity. I come back an hour later, it is still running and no water in the bucket.


Hello,

If there's no water in the reservoir, first make sure that water is getting to the humidifier. The humidifier must have a good stream of water available to it. If there's water in the water line but the reservoir doesn't fill, replace the float mechanism inside the humidifier.

Take care.

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.

My dehumidifier is making a power surge every few minutes. why?


A dehumidifier is functionally the same as an air conditioner. It has a compressor motor, which is a fairly high current draw item.

First of all, unless you are well versed in electrical repairs, you should unplug this unit and do not use it. This is a dangerous condition and a fire or electrocution could result.

One of four things is happening:

1) You have a wiring fault in the circuit your humidifier is plugged into. There is a loose connection in the circuit, causing a voltage drop, and the humidifier therefore has to pull much more current to start it's compressor. This is a very dangerous condition, as an electrical fire could result. Try plugging the unit into another circuit and see if it does the same thing.

2) the compressor of the humidifier is going bad and is shorting out internally. Time for a new unit.

3) Many compressor motors use a 'start capacitor' to help the motor get going. If this part has failed, the motor will try to start, but it will not be able to.

4) There is a fault in the power cord or controls of the humidifier. Just like #1 above, a loose connection could cause a voltage drop, making the unit draw high current.

most of these units are standard 110V units. If yours uses 220V (like an electric dryer), then it could have 'lost a phase' which is also a similar electrical issue.

I need to use the water bucket instead of the drain hose now. However, I've lost the plug. Can I buy a replacement or can I plug it some other way?


you could probably google the model number or the make of the humidifier and get lucky searching around for something that would plug it. Or if you want to use a caulk gun and buy a tube of silicone sealant and squirt it in the hole depending on the size it should dry and be water tight as long as you applied the silicone to a clean and dry surface. good luck

This unit has had a lot of problems. It has come up in other forums. The fan motor is thermally protected. Could be the printed circuit board is bad. Check out this forum:

Humidifier sopped working.


Hi,
I take it that the bucket is empty? I'd suggest making sure that the bucket is properly inserted back into the casing, and that none of the little actuating rods has got broken.

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills.
If they do not, please hold off on the rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D
