If the compressor is running then the unit has a sealed system leak that will need to be found and recharged

I plug the Dehumidifier plug in it starts then stops and the red light blinks capacitor is good could it be the float switch because it runs when I first plug in or the relay. Thx john


John, since you didn't mention the brand or model number of your dehumidifier, so I can only tell you in general terms what may be happening.

If you unit has a float valve in the top of the water collection tank, remove the tank to see if it's stuck in the UP position. If it is, jiggle the float arm to make it return to the DOWN position. If however, yours does not have a float valve, the bucket removal safety switch may not be making firm contact with bucket. When installing the bucket, be sure that it fits "squarely" from top to bottom, into the bucket holder. And that the bucket does not tilt down at the bottom.

On most dehumidifiers, a red flashing light indicates that the bucket is full. If your is not full, it more than likely caused by what I listed above.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

My Danby DPAC1010 Portable Air Conditioner is dehumidifying when simply in AC mode. I don't want it to, but if fills up a 2 gallon bucket every 2-3 days. I've had it overflow twice and I cannot...


The only way to stop it from dehumidifying is to stop it. A dehumidifier is a AC that is 'tuned poorly'. In your machine, while in dehumidify mode, you actually are running the AC in 'slow".

It is a law of physics. Warm air can hold moisture. Cold air can not hold moisture. When you remove the heat from the air, the water has to go somewhere, so it condenses on the coils and drips into the tank. Yes, that is true: Heat is a thing, you have to remove heat from the air. You don't simply "cool it", you remove the heat.

Your Danby should have a automatic shut off that comes into play when the condensate tank gets full. MY Danby, which is a sllightly different model than yours, has a connection that allows me to connect a hose that I lead to a floor drain to disponse of the condensate (water).

If yours is not equipped with a shut off nor a drain and you say it fills every 2 to 3 days, the options I see that you have is to dump it every day, or - don't run it all the time, or - turn the setting to a higher number which will reduce the AC and dehumidifying effect. On the down side of that, your humidity will remain high at the higher setting.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com and thanks for letting me assist you this evening.

Keeps filling with water and shutting off.


Air conditioners remove moisture from the air like a dehumidifier does. With portable units it is captured in a removable container and when full will turn the unit off so it won't overflow onto the floor. There should be option for a hose to attach to the bucket which could be run to a drain so you won't have to keep emptying the bucket. Just remember the a/c unit needs to be higher than the drain.

This generation of Whirlpool dehumidifiers and the one that came after it just don't run forever like they used to. If you hear the compressor start to cycle when it is first turned on and you verify that it's fan is circulating air, it should be removing water. If it's not, a service tech would probably charge you $30+ to tell you that the compressor is not producing sufficient pressure. Time to buy another one.
