DANBY DDR7009 REE dehumidifier "Auto" shut off Malfunction


See previous answer. If new, contact supplier to replace float switch. Are you sure it's not just a fan staying on with the tank out?

Just purchased a Danby dehumidifier (model # DDR6O11R). I was wondering when the dehumidifier reaches the programmed level of humidity (example: 40%). Is the unit suppose to shut off completely? I believe...


Depending on which mode you have the unit set on, will determine if it shots OFF entirely or the fan continues to run. In the Constant or Continual mode, the compressor will turn OFF, once the humidity extraction level has been reached. But, the fan will continue to operate, in an effort to keep the air circulating, so that if the humidity level rises, the compressor will turn ON and start extracting again.

In Timed Mode (usually 2 hour or 4 hour) , when the compressor turns OFF the fan does too.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have a Danby Silhouette and the fan works but the dehumidifier doesnt.


Bryan, it may imply be a case of the humidity extraction level being set to high. Lower the level to 35% and see what happens. As far as the fan running is concerned. Most dehumidifiers are designed for the fan to run, even if the compressor doesn't turn ON. It's designed to keep the air circulating and if the humidity rises above the setting you have it on, the humidity sensor will pick up this change and turn the compressor ON.

Also, remove the air intake filter to see if it's clogged and needs cleaning. Maintain at least a minimum of 12" of free air space all around the dehumidifier. Poor air circulation will prevent the unit from working properly. As will, to low an ambient air tempeature. Most unit struggle to work at temperature between 40 & 60 degrees F.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have a new Danby Model #DDR6009REE and have set it up and while the fan operates no water accumulates in the tank. Pressing the switch inside makes no change.

My Danby Dehumidifier has stopped drawing water even though the fan kicks in. Do you have any suggestions? The fan has been cleaned and the humidity setting is 35.

Ijust bought a danby dehumidifier ddr5009. The compressor works fine but the fan never stops running. Even if I set the timer on standby.


This dehumidifier is built in such a way that the fan runs all the time;however the compressor works only when it is needed. These infos are not specified in the booklet. It does not work like the old ones.
