My dehumidifier ddr557he will no longer defrost. How do I repair this?

well there are three things i know of that can cause this :
1st your filters are dirty needs cleaning .
2nd your humistat is set too low , unit runs too long with out a cool down period , 70% rh is a "normal" setting
3rd in older units that might be getting up there in years its possible that some of the cooling gas has leaked out and this causes freeze ups

Need manual for danby Model # DDR557HE Seial # 0107040706556

Here is a link to a generic Danby user's manual which should help out since they all use the same basic controls:,_6009,_7009REE_EFOM.pdf

To view the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.

You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents.
You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.
Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

I would like to have a munual book for my dehumidifier DDR557HE. A french version would be very appreciate but I could use an English one also.

I wish I spoke more than a few words of French. Never the less, the following link in French, is where you can find it. Search for the model number of your unit and from there (if it pops up. They don't always do) go to that page. If it doesn't click on Dehumidifiers and look for the one you have. Click on it, and when the next page opens, click on Support. The Owner's Manual in French can then be downloaded & printed for future reference.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

We have Danby Model DDR557HE-7 and cannot locate our Manual. We need to disconnect hose and have excess water go to bucket. How is this done?? If we had copy of Manual we wld be able to search same...

All Danby dehumidifiers, regardless of the model number operate the same way.
The link below to a 50 pint model should provide all the info you need.

However, I think you'll find that draining into a bucket is not an option. As the hose drain relies entirely on gravity to drain. So, it will not drain down and then up into a bucket. The hose drainage method, is designed to drain into a floor drain or a sump.

Hope this helps you.
