Model# a6dh50b2a. Bucket empty. Why does full bucket indicator light up and unit turns on and right off?


This can be a fault of the internal interlock (switch) that is closed when the bucket is in place. Normally, the purpose of the interlock is to prevent the dehumidifier from mindlessly dumping condensate into a missing bucket.

Flashing light is on(power on/off pad)


red lights on dehumidifiers almost always indicate a full water catch bucket , this does not allways mean it's actually full of water , the machine thinks it is , some thing has gone ary with the level sensor in bucket , these most times are a simple float switch, that can get knocked out of position when one is emptying the bucket , also this same float switch also allows machine to know there's a bucket in place to catch water , sometimes bucket is not in correct place to catch water so machine wont start

Not running- CH 24 code on the Humidity setting & empty bucket red light flashing even though bucket is empty and in place correctly


If the bucket is in place correctly, turn the unit OFF & unplug it for 10 minutes. This should allow the electronics to rest and revert back to the original factory setting after you plug it back in and turn it ON. From there you should be able reset the controls to your liking.

Hope this helped. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The dehumidifier will not run. It has power to the control panel but the "bucket full" light is flashing RED. We have a hose hooked up to the unit to drain the water and we have check the bucket...


Generally, the buckets on these units can be a little finicky. Especially, if the bucket is not installed properly. In other words, if the bucket doesn't trip the safety switch, when it's out in place and the "bucket full" indicator will remain on and the unit will not run. I suspect the hose attached to the bucket may have gotten the bucket slightly out of place and it's not triggering the safety switch. Turn the unit off, and reinstall the bucket,. Then turn the unit back ON. Make sure there is a little slack in the hose from the unit to the where ever you're draining the water to. In other words, the hose should not be pulling on the bucket.

As I said, they can be a little finicky, so be patient reinstalling the bucket. As it may take several tries, before you get it right.

Hope this helps solve the problem.

We had a hose attached to empty into a drain, but the hose came loose. Now it won't run because it shows the bucket is full.


Was the hose attached to the bucket or directly attached to the inside of the humidifier?
If it was to the bucket, the hose may have slightly pulled the bucket out of place, disengaging the safety switch. Unplug the unit and wait 5 minutes. Then plug the unit back in. Turn it to ON and remove the bucket and carefully reinstall it. You should hear a "click" sound when it's properly in place and the unit should start back up,

Hope this helps to solve your problem.

Model LHD45EL; brand new; Says Full Bucket When Empty!


Bucket has to be firmly in place to engage the switch for the bucket full switch to go off. Also check the float in the bucket for freedom of movement.

Empty tank, but "filled" light still on. Won't turn off


be sure that you all have the bucket fully installed against the bucket switch, to see if the switch is bad, remove the bucket and press in on the switch, if the compressor starts then the bucket is out of place if it does not start then the bucket switch needs inspection
