Question about Dehumidifiers
The manual claims 'all models have a built in water overflow control' which is supposed to be a red plunger on the top of the bucket that one can turn 'counterclockwise to adjust the maximum water level'. I don't see the red plunger anywhere on the bucket. I do see a float that is supposed to keep the bucket from overfilling but it's not functioning properly. Am I missing a part? Is this oversight from Haier or a misadvertisement?
My maytag M7DH65B2A dehumidifier overflows to the pont of spillage. I removed the resevoir and depressed the switch and the unit continues to run. Does this mean the microswitch is broken? if so, where can I purchase a new micro switch?

The float is the main feature that keeps it from overflowing. I have no idea why there would even have to be an adjustable component in the circuit. The float is connected to an On-OFF microswitch and may be tested with the unit set to run.
Remove the bucket and manually push upward on the float. If the unit stops running then the bucket may be misalgned,(Make sure float is on the inside of the bucket and not lodged behind the bucket).
