Hi; I just purchased the unit, and am not sure whether or not to remove the protective plastic film from the top of the water level float in the bucket. My first impression is that it is there to protect during shipping, but I really can't see that it would make a difference. The float will rise up as the water below it rises whether or not the top is open or covered.

I believe the fan is designed to run all the time, and no, it costs very little to run an 18w fan. You can use a timed socket, or switch it on and off when needed. I don't believe the Haier has specific switching times.
Since you have already done the things we say to do, with no success and yours is not a new unit. It may be time to replace it. As often is the case, repairing older units can cost as much or more than a price new one. If you have been satisfied up to now with Haier, purchase another one from them. Their new electronic models are Energy Star Rated. However, this time if you do, also purchase and extended warranty. In the long run, it could pay for itself.
You are setting the temperature to low. Dehumidifiers do not work well between 40 - 60 degrees F. That's why the word "LO" keeps showing up. Raise the temperature setting and set the humidity extraction level (Arrow Down) at 30-32%. In fact, if you can disregard the temperature setting and the unit will work, do so. That seems to be the fly in the ointment, when it comes to getting everything to work as it should.
Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
The air intake filter may need cleaning. Also, check the humidity
setting. You may have it set to low. In addition, it wouldn't hurt to
check the drain tube or drain hole (whichever one your unit has) that's
just above the bucket. You'll see it once you remove the bucket. It may
be clogged and is not allowing the water to drain properly. Using a 18"
long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (No wire coat hangers) that
will comfortably fit into the hole ... Carefully and gently run it as
far as you can into the drain hole or tube. The tricky part is when you
reach the bend in the tube. So, tread carefully. Once you have it
inserted as far possible, as you rotate the Zip Tie, slowly pull it out.
Rotating it, will loosen any debris. Be prepared for water to follow.
none of the above solves the problem, the compressor in the
dehumidifier may be low on refrigerant gas and will need to be
Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

There can be many reasons why a dehumidifier will
not work or collect water.
