Dehumidifier stopped working because "water bucket full" indicator light stays on, although there is no water in bucket.


In the water bucket is a float assm. scale forms on the assm. and causes it to stick. Remove the float assm. and carefully remove the scale. Should start working again once done. If not you may have to replace it.

Dehumidifier does not colect any water, everything alse works


There are 5 basic, but solvable reason for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2..

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications . Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

The dehuidifier has started leaking water out of the bottom of the unit. Water bucket is correctly installed.


Hi,
This is usually caused because of dirt buildup where the water runs out into the bucket...
Find the little tube or spout that runs the water into the bucket... then use a small toothpick or canned air to clean it out and get the water flowing out of it again...

I have a comfort air dehumidifier that does seem too effective. also theer is a tube on top of the water bucket? whats that for?


That's the water collection tube, that drains water into the bucket. What's the other other problem that makes it seem, that the dehumidifier is not to effective?

When my dehumidifier is on, it says there is 90 humidity. I come back an hour later, it is still running and no water in the bucket.


Hello,

If there's no water in the reservoir, first make sure that water is getting to the humidifier. The humidifier must have a good stream of water available to it. If there's water in the water line but the reservoir doesn't fill, replace the float mechanism inside the humidifier.

Take care.

How much water to put in the water entering tray


dehumidifier's remove moisture from the air,so you really don't want water anywhere close, the tray in a dehumidifier is to collect water removed from the air. a humidifier is easy, you put a pan of water close to a heat source or moving air

It collects some water but it also spits water out


The dehumidifier has a non-removable tray under the coils (they look like radiators) that collects and drains the water away. If the tray or drain gets clogged with dirt or slime the water doesn't drain away well. Some water is picked up by the fan and is blown out the vent. Take the covers off the machine and give everything a good cleaning. If you get water on any electrical parts, let the machine dry thoroughly before plugging in.

Dehumdifier won't drain


You just need to get the water flowing and start the siphoning process by taking out the water bucket while it's full of water and raising it up high enough to start the water flowing. Once the water starts flowing, you can put the bucket back and the water will keep flowing (by capillary action). If the bucket empties completely, you may have to do it again periodically to get the water flowing again.

Water tank still gets full when connected to floor drain


Check the fitting where you connect the drain hose to. It may have a plastic seal that must be cleared out in order to use the hose drain. The plastic seal can be easily punched out.
