SOURCE: danby dehumidifier ddr4588ee ices up.

According to your Owners Manual, the coils may start to frost at 60 degrees and the defrost sensor should turn ON and cycle periodically. However, the air temperature at the floor level in a basement, is colder than the air temperature by 5 to 8 degrees. So this may be causing the problem. In addition, if the air intake filter is dirty or clogged, the unit has to strain to keep up and will not function as it should.

If the unit is totally iced up, turn the unit Off and unplug it from the wall outlet. Allow is to thaw completely before attempting to clean the filter. You may want to put some old towels under it while it thaws. Once it's thawed, move it to a bathroom that has a shower. Plug it it in and set the humidity level at 45%. Turn the shower ON at a Medium hot temperature (enough to generate steam) and as you exit the batroom, close the door. DO NOT operate the bathroom's exhaust fan. Allow the unit to operate for 15 to 20 minutes, before returning to the bathroom. Then turn the shower OFF and check the unit for any frost and the amount of water collected in the bucket. If there is no frost on the unit and there's water in the bucket the unit is operating properly.

When you move it back to the basement, place it up off the floor on something sturdy, that can hold the weight and not be bothered by the vibration of the unit, when it's running. (ie a work bench, a counter top, etc.) Operate the unit as you normally do and monitor it for frost or icing up. And, whether or not the defrost sensor is cycling as it should. If you get no frost or just minor frost, it was the air temperature at the floor level, that was causing the problem.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

E-1 error


The E1 error code indicates that the air intake filter needs to be removed and cleaned. Be sure to turn the unit OFF & unplug it before removing the filter. Never operate the unit without the filter in place. Doing so, could damage the unit.

Hi my Danby DDR4588EE Dehumidifier's buttons aren't working


Hi! I'm assuming that the unit is plugged in and the outlet the unit is plugged into is working (if not, is there a tripped circuit breaker, in your home's circuit breaker panel?). Also, that you have turned ON The Master ON/OFF Switch and the Water Collection Bucket is installed properly and the Float Valve inside the bucket is in the Down position

If you answered NO to any of the above, turn the the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit, before checking those things first. Because, 9 times out of 10, one of thee above is the culprit.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

My model DDR6588EE dehumidifier runs for a while and then stops displaying an E1. If I hit power button it will run a while and do the same thing. This also happens on Continuous mode. Is there some thing...

My model is DDR4009EE, after it run for a while, the display changed from RH to "P1",what does "P1" mean?


My Danby DDR657EE shows P1 periodically also. So, I called Danby.

Danby's Consumer Help Line (1-800-263-2629) is always busy. So, I called their General number: 419-425-8627. The receptionist transferred my call to their Service dept. My call was answered in 2 minutes.

The Service Rep. described the following code for my dehumidifier model (DDR657EE):
P1 = Defrosting: the unit will go into Defrost mode periodically to ensure that the parts are working at the right operating temperature. It should be in Defrost (P1) mode for only a brief period of time. If the unit is in Defrost (P1) mode continuously for a couple of hours (or more), then you should call Danby Service for further assistance.

He had no documentation of a P2 code for my model.

He also described other General Codes (applicable to most Danby Dehumidifier/Humidifier models):
E1 = Not enough water
E2 = Not draining
E3 = Water temperature too cool
E4 = Overflow Switch activated
E6 / E7 = Problem with Temperature Sensor

So, if you see P1 periodically (for brief periods), then it would be normal.

Also, here is a link to Danby's FAQ page for Dehumidifiers (which answers some common questions):

I hope that helps.

P1 error


Your question needs to be answered in 3 parts:

1) As per the manual for my Danby Dehumidifier (Model DDR657EE), the unit may not turn on immediately when powered On (it may take a several minutes). So, generally, it would be normal in your case.

2) Danby's Consumer Help Line (1-800-263-2629) is always busy. So, I called their General number: 419-425-8627. The receptionist transferred my call to their Service dept. My call was answered in 2 minutes.

The Service Rep. described the following code for my dehumidifier model (DDR657EE):
P1 = Defrosting: the unit will go into Defrost mode periodically to ensure that the parts are working at the right operating temperature. It should be in Defrost (P1) mode for only a brief period of time. If the unit is in Defrost (P1) mode continuously for a couple of hours (or more), then you should call Danby Service for further assistance.

E2 = Not draining
E3 = Water temperature too cool
E4 = Overflow Switch activated
E6 / E7 = Problem with Temperature Sensor

So, generally, if you see P1 periodically (for brief periods), then it would be normal.

3) Since your unit keeps running (continuously) and there is no water in the bucket, then you should call Danby ServiceI for additional assistance - it seems defective for this reason.

I hope that helps.
