The red full light is on all the time. we have unplugged it for a few hours and when we plug it in again the full light still comes on. We cannot get it to do anything, change the humidty setting or even turn it off. Is there a reset button?

"bucket full" indicator on - running a hose


Since you have had 2 seemingly unrelated symptoms it is almost sure you have had a power board failure. If you post back with the complete model number we will try to check everything and see what we can come up with.

Red light comes on for no reason. Danby DDR6588EE dehumidifier


I have a DDR4588EE (same model with 45 pint capacity) and had the exact same problem. It's caused by the float at the top of the bucket being in poor contact with the "full" detector button. When the bucket is not full, the float on the bucket is supposed to press against the button. When the bucket fills, the float is supposed to push up off the button which causes the unit to stop and the red light comes on. The problem is that for some reason, the float isn't pressing hard enough against the button to push it properly in when the bucket isn't full. I fixed it by sticking a few little squares of duct tape (3 or 4 layers) on the float to make it press the button more firmly. Seems to be working fine now. Careful not to put too much tape or it might press too firmly which would result in the float not releasing the button when the bucket is full, and water will spill over.

When you push the power button, the blower fan comes on. In a few minutes you should hear a second "click"--that is your compressor starting. Do you hear that second click?

The compressor is located in the rear bottom on the right side looking at the machine. After you press the start button and the blower fan comes on, bend over near the back of the unit and listen for the "click".

Runs, but overheated, tripped outlet causing freezer full of rotten food


There was a recall on these - it depends on the age.  I bought mine in 2003 or 2004, and they sent a repairman out to replace a circuit board.  Call Maytag to see if yours was in the recall.

Maytag electronic dehumidifiers full light stays on


Take out the bucket and locate the "full" switch in the upper right of the area where the bucket slides in. With the unit on, try pushing it in and see if the "full" light goes off.
If so, that switch is fine - if not try to adjust if and replace it if required. Those are generally micro-switches and firms like Radio Shack would have if your appliance parts dealer does not.

Power lose


I have a 45 pint. I have to slide the bucket in and out of the unit multiple times. Make sure to wait a few seconds after each time to see if it will recognize no water (sometimes the red light comes on, but then changes it mind). Also, I've found that leaving the bucket a little crooked will make it respond. It sucks, I know. Mine is only a year old too. Should not be a problem like this!
