Find the switch that reads the container ... bend the feeler gague a little until you find a setting that works for you ... beter yet ... attach a hose to the catch pail and run it to a drain.

Hi I have problems with my mitsubishi dehumidifier Oasis Elite MJ-E-142NX-A1 The water tank full light stays on even though the tank is empty. I have emptied the water and replaced the container care

Sounds like your float is stuck in the full position, or the sensor that shows full is stuck on full.
If tank is empty but shows full, problem lies where full signal is coming from.

Dehumidifiers bucket empty but says full water leaking on floor

if says full and leaking on floor. it is full, you say empty, why make sure that it is empty, sensor in container to check level, so if it is empty, sensor fault, but leaking on floor, would indicate sensor ok, and container full

I have a delongji DEM 10 dehumidifier and it keeps switching to pause, I have cleaned filter switched off for a while but it still won't come on

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Unless you are licensed and qualified professional, do not try to repair a dehumidifier by yourself. If your unit is running constantly yet there is no water in the tank, try lowering the temperature control. If the problem persists, there may be a problem within the refrigeration system. You may need to pull the filter and clean it. Also try wiping off the unit itself. When the water tank is full, the unit will shut off and will not run until the tank is emptied. The dehumidifier shuts off by a safety switch in the back of the unit. If the switch is not working properly, you may try manually pressing the button or slightly bending the switch.
    Motor If the fan motor is damaged or will not work, no cool air will be coming out of the dehumidifier. The unit, however, may still run. You may need to replace the motor. If the coils in the back of the dehumidifier constantly freeze, try turning off the unit for an hour or re-locating the unit to a higher position to allow the room to heat up. If your water tank is constantly full and you are emptying it on a daily basis, you may have a water leak somewhere in the room with the dehumidifier.

    Dehumidifiers have a container that holds the water the the unit extracts from the air. If that container is full or not placed correctly, the water will leak out of the unit.

    An automatic overflow switch and Container “Full” indicator light are provided to turn the
    dehumidifier off before the container overflows. When the indicator light on the control panel
    glows, the water container must be emptied. If the light remains on and the dehumidifier does
    not begin to operate make sure the float is attached to the water container.

    When the condensate water container is full, the indicator lights up.
    1. Turn the power off before removing container. Wait 3 minutes for
    any remaining water to drain into the condensate container.
    2. Tilt the container forward then lift carefully by the handle.
    3. Empty and gently re-insert the container.
    Important:This water is not suitable for drinking.

    Please rate and god bless:)

    The fall may have knocked out some wiring -- open the unit (remove back panel, then remove front by taking out screws inside) and see if any of the cables to the front panel or control board came out.
