Question about Danby DDR586R Dehumidifier
Recendly, my humidifier had frosted and I concluded that the room temperature was too low. I let it thaw, and decided to take the opportunity to clean the inside. There was a lot of dust on the humidity probe, and I opened the tiny white plastic cage in which the probe rests to make a good job. On the cage, I noticed the number 16 written by hand on it. When I reassembled everything, the humidity readings were way off and still are. I thought that there might be some setting knob to calibrate the humidity probe, but found none.
I certainly did something wrong, but now what can I do to?
Running a dehumidifier when the ambient temperature is to low will cause freeze-ups. Also running it when the dew point of the moisture in the air is to low will cause it to freeze up when you set it to low which would be a higher number on the set point.
The hand written number on the probe casing is probably a quality control inspector number.

Will my dehumidifier work in a cold room ?
A dehumidifier will not operate satisfactory in a room that is
below 65 degrees F. At this temperature it will become necessary to operate the
dehumidifying coil below freezing temperatures in order to reduce the relative humidity to
a reasonable valve. Frost on coils usually will appear.
I would imaging that the humidity is already lower than the dehumidifier could get it down to. that's why it reads "Lo" on the display.
