    The dehumidifier runs but stopped producing water. It is less than two years old. Previous replies said it could be the compressor or the fan. How much would each of these cost when repaired?

If the compressor is running but no air is blowing out, then your fan motor is shot. If the fan is blowing air but you don't hear the click and vibration when you turn it on, then your compressor needs replacing. Those are the most likely culprits.

Unit connected to drainage hose but still fills bucket. This just happened, same problem on 2 units working fine for 3+ years.

A few things to check... obviously if they work fine for a few years you have the knock out plug removed...

So... next is the hose... there is an algae that can grow in the hose that is almost invisible....take the hose off and run fresh water through it to make sure it is clean...

Then when replacing the hose, make sure that it runs continuously downhill and that it is not trapped... or in other words go up and down... this will air lock the hose and keep the water from flowing....

Then test it by pouring water into the bucket and making sure that it runs out...

I have had my Danby ddr606 unit for 4 years in my basement. It has been running with a hose connected to it that allows the water to drain in the sump pump so I do not have to empty the "bucket"...

Yes. Either the hose is clogged or the hose connection and it's tubing is clogged. When that happens, water is automatically diverted to the bucket. The hose is easy to check for a blockage. Simply remove it and either blow thru it or look thru it for daylight.

To clear the hose connection and tubing. Use an 18" long appropriately sized Zip Tie. Insert the end of the Zip Tie into the hose connection and carefully work it in. You will reach a bend in the tubing that you need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past. Continue to insert it until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. The slowly pill the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will dislodge any clogs. As you reach the tip of the Zip Tie, be prepared as some water may follow. Hook the hose back up, plug the unit in and turn it On. Set the humidity extraction level at 35%. Monitor the end of the hose for water flow, after about 15 - 20 minutes. If water doesn't start to flow, turn the unit OFF and repeat the above procedure. Also, remove the air intake filter and clean it if necessary.

Hope this helped to solve the problem and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Unit not discharging through garden hose. Just cleaned unit inside and out. Works great, BUT, only discharges into its container. What am I missing. Cleaned all hoses - no blockages. What should I be...

The blockage is not in the hose, it's inside the hose connection drain tube. To clear this clog, you will need an 18" long plastic Zip Tie, sized to fit into the drain hole. You can use something similar, but NO wire coat hangers. Carefully thread the Zip Tie into the hole and continue to firmly, yet gently work it in, until it reaches a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work it past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of Zip Tie. Then slowly pull it back out while rotating it. This will help remove the clog. Once you have pulled it almost all the way out, be prepared for some water to follow.

That should solve the problem for you. Please let me know. Thanks.

The water fills the tank but does not go out of the hose and drain to the sump pump as designed

Check the hose for clog up as well as your sump pump. Have your hose unclogged and let it run. Check the sump pump if this is running. And if it is, and still no water goes out. Open the sump, and check the impeller for defect. Impeller is the one that turns around to push the water out. If it is defective, you must replace it to make it run.
Once you are done, power it up and start it.

The coils frost up for Kenmore dehumidifier model 580.53701300 even the temp is > 70. the fan works fine. there is a few water in the water bucket. the humidity> 65%.

check the drain tube for blockage, maybe run a small rubber hose to clear out blockage so condensation can drain freely. Worth a try worked for me

Bucket fills up instead of water flowing out hose

There must be a blockage in the hose causing the water to back up and flow into the bucket. Try pushing a flexble peice of wire through the hose to unblock it.

Try making sure the tube that came with the dehumidifier has no blockage. Some Dehumidifiers have the hose screw into the side of the bucket and drain from there. Most newer ones have a plastic tube that comes with them that attaches where the condensate water drains. Good luck - Tech101

Check the point on the tank (Bucket) where the hose connects to. Make sure there is no obstruction at the outlet of the bucket to the hose connection. Next make sure the hose has no kinks or no loops that may trap air to the drain. If necessary for a long run to the place of drainage raise the dehumidifier to a higher level for better drainage.

Tank still fills when we are using direct drain feature

check to see that the hose isn't clogged, and that the hose runs down hill from the tank all the way to the drain. if it is higher than the tank at any point in its path it will not drain. you may put the dehumidifier on top of a small platform to aid drainage. also check that the knockout removed so there is a hole to let the water go from the tank to the hose?
