The first thing I would check is to see if turning the humdity switch to lower the humidity turns the unit on. Then if that does not work, I would check to see if the bucket is making contact with the switch. It the switch that shuts the dehumidifier off when the bucket get full of water. Sometimes you can hear it click when the bucket hits the full state.

Not sure how technical you are, but if you are familiar with how to use a meter, I would check the bucket switch. I would check to see if the switch changes open/close depending on whether the switch is pressed.

If the switch is good, listen for any kind of hum from the unit. That could mean that the compressor, is unable to start. That could either mean you need a new compressor of a capacitor.

Hope this helps you.

Have you checked to see if the collection basin is full. If so empty it and it should start.

Does it need a hose in the back


The hose is optional.You will have to empty the water bin every now & then yourself when full.The hose drain has to run to a sink or floor drain for convienece if the unit is HIGHER THAN location.

Suddenly stopped working


remove bucket, look under for the bucket overflow switch, try tugging it a bit, may have gotten stuck when you pulled out the bucket

The hose connector does not drain the bucket, it drains the condensate before it enters the bucket. Tube passes through back of dehumidifier by the cord wrap area. (you may have to remove a small cover)

We came home to this problem the other day, water all over the basement, leaking out the bottom left side, nothing in the collection basin but plenty would spill out if I tipped the unit forward. After searching the web and these forums I theorized that the coils were frozen. I let the unit thaw. No luck. I removed the faceplate and discovered thick, wet silt had filled the internal collection plate and was clogging the drain. I stuck a pipe-cleaner through the drain and the problem was fixed. Took some paper towels and cleaned the whole thing. Works like new. I assume the unit will need to be cleaned regularly to keep it going. To remove the faceplate, unscrew the two phillips' head screws under the faceplate along the sides, then take a flat head screwdriver and pop the tabs holding the face on, one tabe along each side. There are also two tabs on top, but you don't need to mess with those, as they simply act against gravity. Whole thing just clips back together after cleaning. I have no idea if this voids the warranty.
