I found this to work for my Deloghi...supposed to be OEM of kenmore (or visa versa)B

Be Safe or don't do it....

On the side with the lint screen, remove the five screws holding the top panel in place. The sensor that needs to be checked in mounted on the radiator fins. Remove the sensor and 4 pin connector. With a pin, remove the loose fitting housing the "sensor"...a circuit board that "shorts" with condensation...check corrosion and look for component damage on the oft chance the circuit board was damaged by some inappropriate poking or mechanical failure. Reassemble and replace sensor...

For a short life span...or out of warranty and only at your risk (IF have significant other or kids or pets or human DNA... don't do this...) .. guide wire through screen notch and attach to outer screen. Build fortress around exposed sensor and talk to insurance agent for a special rider...seriously be careful.



Did you? Clean screen and GENTLY clean fins of lint, etc....(vacuum's brush head should do the trick...)

Taking all appropriate safety precautions.

...


Here's the 100,000 (yen) tip....with humidifier unplugged, hold down the power button (green button in lower center) and plug in the appliance.

Watch the LCD screen as it conducts a self test...and wha...lah!.

Should have a working humidifier!

You can try cleaning the humidity sensor, which is on a circuit board
housed in a nylon clip attached to the cooling coils.
The sensor is in a plastic clip, which can be opened up and cleaned.
Some report success. Didn't work for me.

I ended up rewiring the unit so that a 5v control
line from the lower relay board goes through the SPDT bucket full switch,
turning on the control board when full (so it beeps), but otherwise
enabling the compressor and fan. The fan and compressor
are controlled by relays, which are driven by a ULN2003AN
relay driver. I fed the empty side of the full bucket switch back into
the relay driver to turn on the compress and the fan on high.
I plan to put a dehumidistat in series with this control line;
now it just runs till the bucket is full. A Broan DH100W dehumidistat
is 20 bucks. Could also put in a rotary switch to control the fan speed,
but for me high is enough.

I think this machine is made by Goldstar for Kenmore and Delonghi.
Stuff is just made to break and through away these days, which is a shame.

An E 3 error code comes up and I don't have a manual to determine what the codes mean.


An E3 error code is a Sensor Shutdown Failure. You will need to contact Haier Customer Support for an explanation on which sensor it is and how to solve the problem.

E3 code...what to do? on dehumidifier


Unfortunately, Delongi doesn't list an Owner's/Operational Manual for your model dehumidifier. However, you can contact their Customer Support Dept at 800-322-3848. They can provide you with the Error Code solution, as well as email you an Owners Manual. Be sure you have the correct model number for your unit, before calling.

Our delonghi de400p dehumidifier shows an E3 error message. Customer Service says its a sensor but can't tell us what sensor. Any help would be appreciated.


I have a 40 pint and a 50 pint that are very similar. The 40 pint has the e3 error. Experimenting with the 50 pint, I found if I disconnected a particular sensor I got the e3 error. That sensor is a little can with two black wires (smaller than a AAA battery but shaped like that). It is attached to the cooling coils so must be a temperature sensor. This is not the little circuit board sensor mounted in the middle of the radiator in a plastic box/clip thing.

I am now about to see that part to see if I can replace it.

Danby's Consumer Help Line (1-800-263-2629) is always busy. So, I had called their General number: 419-425-8627. The receptionist transferred my call to their Service dept. My call was answered in 2 minutes.

The Danby Service Rep. helped me with my question about my P1 code (for DDR657EE).

E3 is flashing on display panel


Calling two service centers, they both indicated that the main circuit board needed replacing. This would need shipping the unit!!, part and then labor. I figured over $120 - not reasonable. I then took the unit apart and followed the wires from the compressor to the back of the unit. This is where the moisture sensor was located - upper left. You'll see this when you take the filter off. Anyway, I cleaned the face of this part with a old toothbrush, used some compressed air to remove any dust. I then followed the wires with the black sleeve that went to what I think is a temperature sensor - also on the left. The wires go to a sensor that is pushed into a copper tube that is part of the cooling tubing. Gently pull this out, wipe it down and re-install. I then plugged the unit in, set the humidity level and it now works. I just put the unit back together and the compressor is turning on and collecting moisture! I will run it a few days and keep checking on it to make sure it doesn't go into the 'E3' Mode. By the way, the repair shops I called really didn't have a clue what the E3 code was. Dennis
