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.

My des12 red light wont go off although unit is empty of water

Again!!!! Unplug machine X 15 minutes. Then fill with water. Then plug back in! If still lit, you have a water scale (mineral build up) issue that needs cleaning according to owners manual

Dehumidifier stopped working because "water bucket full" indicator light stays on, although there is no water in bucket.

In the water bucket is a float assm. scale forms on the assm. and causes it to stick. Remove the float assm. and carefully remove the scale. Should start working again once done. If not you may have to replace it.

Kenmore 54351 Dehumidifier is leaking -- water isn't going into the tray, but seems to be leaking out into the floor.

Mine is doing the same thing. The bucket is dry and the floor is flooded, so it is not an inability to condense, and it is not that the bucket has overflowed, and the bucket does not have a leak. It had been working great and then this suddenly started happening, it's as if the water is not flowing along the proper route and instead is gathering behind the bucket.

Emtied water out of tray and machine will not strart lights are all on the top of the machine is their a reset button i did set the tray with a hose to empty by itself don't believe that would...

If the hose is still connected and it's not clogged, the water shouldn't have filled the bucket.But, let's get back to emptying the bucket and reinstalling it and the unit won't start.

Several things can cause the this. The first and most notable is the bucket is not installed properly. When that happens the bucket safety removal switch, does not make firm contact with the bucket when it's reinstalled. If the hose is still attached, temporarily remove it and reinstall the bucket so that it fits "squarely" from top to bottom into it's holder. Make sure that is makes firm contact with the bucket safety removal switch on the back wall of the bucket holder. When installed properly the bottom of the bucket should not tilt down at the bottom.

The second most notable thing, is that the humidity level in the room is the same as whet you have the unit set to extract. In this case, the unit won't turn ON, until the surrounding humidity level rises. To test this, lower the humidity extraction level to 32%. If the bucket is installed properly and the Air Intake Filter is clean, the unit should start.

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

It collects some water but it also spits water out

The dehumidifier has a non-removable tray under the coils (they look like radiators) that collects and drains the water away. If the tray or drain gets clogged with dirt or slime the water doesn't drain away well. Some water is picked up by the fan and is blown out the vent. Take the covers off the machine and give everything a good cleaning. If you get water on any electrical parts, let the machine dry thoroughly before plugging in.

Dehumidifier leaks

Either there is a hole/leak in the tray, or the drain line is clogged. You are giong to have to access the tray to determine this: standing water is plugged line and no water is busted pan. This will determine your avenue of approach.....

Royal Sovereign Bucketless Dehumidifier that is not running

I have had the exact same problem with my RS dehumidifier and I can tell you what the problem is not. I tried replacing the pump because I had surmised (incorrectly) that it had failed and that is why the water tray was filling up and shutting off the dehumidifier. I had also checked to see if the pump would pump water, which it would not. After scouring the internet for days and finally deciding just buying the pump itself was not an option (I was not going to spend $48 for the pump from RS since this one only lasted about a year and from what I have seen I was lucky) I decided to buy a fog machine($20 at walmart) and use the pump out of it. Spliced it in and IT WORKED GREAT. It pumped the water out and shut off when the tray was empty...just like it should. Then it turned the pump back on and off about every 3-5 seconds. After much more trial and error (more error than anything) I thought I had it figured out. When I wiped out the water tray, to the point where it was dry, the pump would not turn on until the water reached the wires. It would pump out the water and shut off the pump. AWESOME...problem solved. It then started the pump up again and it cycled about every 3-5 seconds. This would eventually burn this pump as well. The only thing left is that the control board, or some component on it, in this hunk of junk is bad. If anyone can figure out the issue with the dehumidifier wanting to turn the pump on when there is no water in the tray that would be great. I completely wiped down the tray and removed the scale build up to eliminate the possibility of that completing the circuit between the two wires.

Full light stays on

If the lever / rod which is moved by the floating part in the bucket moves up and down OK, but the light stays on, then I would suspect the microswitch which is on the other end of the lever / rod to be faulty. This is a job for someone with electrical training, so don't go there unless you know what you are doing!
Hope this helps you a bit more. Cheers, D.
