SOURCE: my dehumidifier says the bucket is full, when it

First, the unit may need to be cleaned and after that, unit may need to be reset. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 12-15 minutes. Then plug it back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the controls as you normally do. Hopefully, that 12 - 15 minute timeout, allowed the electronics to reset themselves. If this continues to occur frequently, contact an authorized Frigidaire Service Center

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

My DEHUMIDIFIER shows check-red light


well you didnt mention model but most times this occurs on dehumidifyers it means the bucket full sensor has tripped , this does not mean that bucket is full, it just means that bucket is either not seated all the way in or maybe the sensor has moved in the bucket and no longer hits the sensor as it should , try reposisioning the bucket and full sensor , ck for looseness

Says bucket full and it is empty


There is a float switch somewhere to measure the level of water in the bucket. That switch is out of position or broken. This can happen if you are not careful removing and re-installing the bucket. Look at the area around the bucket and you should be able to find and fix the switch. Make sure the power is off when you are doing this.

Starts then stops completely showing this type of line - - - - where humidity should be. Cannot turn on or off.


The ---- lines you see, indicates that water collection bucket is not installed properly, as well as the air intake filter may need to be removed and cleaned.

When installing the bucket, be sure that it fit's "squarely" into the holder from top to bottom, so that it makes good contact with the bucket safety removal switch. When installed properly the bottom of the bucket will not tilt down at all.

To clean the filter. turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Remove the bucket and then pull the filter straight down and out. The filter can be vacuumed or if it's really dirty, wash with warm water and mild dish washing detergent. Rinse thoroughly, shake off any excess water and thoroughly dry, before reinstalling. Never operate the unit without the filter in place.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Put empty bucket in,it runs for minute,then shuts off. need a switch that won't shut off. Where could I find one my zip code is 44451.


The switch may not be the problem. However, a dirty or clogged air intake filter or the humidity extraction level set to high could be.

Turn the unit OFF & unplug it.
Remove and clean the air intake filter thoroughly. Be sure the filter is completely dry, before reinstalling. Never operate the unit without the filter in place.

After the filter is dry, reinstall it, plug the unit and turn it ON. Lower the humidity extraction level to 35%. If you have an analog unit (No LED screen) set the humidity extraction knob on Maximum.

And finally, be sure that the water collection bucket is installed properly and is not vibrating loose when the unit runs. It should fit squarely into it's holder, making contact with the bucket safety removal switch on the back wall of the bucket holder. When installed properly, it should not tilt down at the bottom of the bucket.

All of the above should solve the problem and you won't need to purchase a new switch. But, in the unlikely event, that you will have to. You will need to furnish the Brand Name of the unit and the Correct Model Number. As, they are not all the same.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

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.

Was full - turned off to empty - replaced empty bucket, won'r turn back on and keeps beeping full


Try reinserting the bucket, making sure that it's positioned properly. So that the safety switch is engaged. If that still doesn't solve the problem. Turn the MASTER ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Wait 12 - 15 minutes and plug the unit back in. Turn the MASTER ON/OFF Switch to ON and hopefully, if the bucket is positioned properly, the unit will have reset itself.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem. Please let me know.

How do I access and clean the filter, and how often?


Pull out drain bucket, under lip of bottom front of cabinet (top of bucket area) remove blue tape and slide down filter, rinse or vaccuum off 1/yr.

Manual should be on line, but google full model number (sticker at rear of bucket area)
