First, check that the power cord is plugged into a working electrical outlet and that the power button is switched to "On." Next, check that the humidistat is set above "Minimum." On the "Minimum" setting, the humidifier will only work intermittently depending on the amount of humidity in the room. Raising the level of the humidistat will turn the dehumidifier on right away.
The water tank will keep the dehumidifier from running if it is full or if it is improperly placed in the machine. Check the water tank and empty it if needed. If the water tank is empty and the dehumidifier still will not run, pull the tank out of the machine and then reinsert it.
You may find your Delonghi dehumidifier does not start working for up to three minutes after powering it on. This is due to a security feature in the machine. The security feature is in place to prevent damage to the components of your dehumidifier. Wait at least three minutes to see if the machine turns on. If it does not turn on, plug the dehumidifier in a different electrical socket. You should contact a service technician if the machine does not turn on after using several different sockets.
Dehumidifier troubleshooting is a straightforward process-most things that go wrong can be easily adjusted. A dehumidifier works by using a fan to draw in moist air. The air is passed over a refrigerated coil that causes moisture to condense onto the coils. As the moisture accumulates, it runs down the coils and is collected in a reservoir.
First, make sure the reservoir is empty. If you plug the unit in and see a green power light, but the unit won't run, make sure the reservoir is properly inserted. Many dehumidifiers have switches or sensors to make sure that the reservoir is placed so that it won't leak. Look for these sensors and make sure the reservoir is engaging them. If your dehumidifier has a float or switch to indicate a full reservoir, make sure this switch isn't being tripped accidentally.
