My unit originally came with a separate plastic adapter for a garden hose, and there is a circular knock-out on the back where the hose would exit the unit. Not sure if this will help or not, but it appears as if the part was available - but is now discontinued:

Is there a rubber plug in the right hand mid back pannel ? if so you probably have a unit that can have a drain installed . If you look in the hole you will see a white plastic tube near the front of the unit . You can access it from where the tank slides in . it just needs a short hose and a garden hose adapter .

I have a keystone 70b dehumidifier. the hose is attached but won't continuous drain. The bucket keeps filling. When I take the hose off, water comes out so I know there isn't a plug that needs to be...

1st make sure the unit is level , sometimes we forget that it needs to be perfectly level to drain out
2nd this also might be a case where unit runs so long and for so long that it never rests, this might sound funny but its not most units need a cool down period where the internal parts cools off and the fluids run out only when the fan inside shuts off , the humidistat should be set at 70% Rh this should allow a bit of a rest period if not you unit is too small for the task you gave it

What part do we need to connect this unit to a drain ? Is it available ? ****** #404TA003818

Not well up on the unit, but most just require a pipe to be pushed on, have a look round back, might have a drain plug that you will need to remove, and connect a pipe to.

Not up on the unit, but water condenses on the evaporator of an a/c unit dropping onto a tray, as self evaporating, would assume that the drain from that tray is fed to the top of the compresor, which will have a tray around the top, heat from the compressor will evaporate the water, same as with a fridge. In dehumidifier mode, water would need to be collected, rather than evaporated back into the atmosphere, defeats the object other wise. so is lower tank around compressor? that would be for a/c mode upper tank for dehumidifier

I need a part(s) which allows the water from the dehumidifier to drain into a hose which goes to a basement drain. What are the names of the parts and where can I order them?

Not knowing which brand and model number dehumidifier you have, makes telling you what parts you need difficult at best. Most dehumidifiers only require a garden hose section, no longer than 5 feet, that connects to rear of the unit. The connection will be a threaded male connection. It is plastic, so don't over tighten it and crack it. It will have a screw off cap, which must be removed to connect the hose.

Keep in mind, most dehumidifiers rely solely on gravity to drain the water thru a hose. So, the hose should slope down from the unit and straight over to the floor drain.

If the above didn't help you, get back to me with the brand and model number of your dehumidifier.

"Check drain" light is on

If the float switch is indicating a full drain pan, the light will be on and the compressor and fan will not run. Make sure the dehumidifier is installed level and the condensate drain is open allowing the drain pan to empty. Next check that the float is free to move up and down and the switch operates a required. Call the manufacturer at 1-800-533-7533 for parts and instructions if there is a problem wirh the float switch.

The dehumidifier drain hose does not drain when a hose is connected properly and is set at ``Continous Run``.The light on Continous setting is orange,is this normal? Raymond Benoit

I would suspect the float first, IF the unit is level. But it could also be blocked with gunk and you will need to check the drain holes. I have always found a guitar string is an affective clean out of drain lines and holes.

The orange light indicates that your bucket is full, so if it isn't then it is most likely the float above.

Use an 18" long plastic Zip Tie that will fit into the drain tube and carefully slide it in. The tricky part will be when you reach the curve in the drain tube. So be careful, but persistent. Once it has gone as far as it can, slowly pull it out while rotating it. This will help to dislodge the clog. Be prepared for water to follow. This should solve your problem.
