Try feeling both sides of the outside of the bucket and make sure the bucket is flush with the dehumidifier. If one side is sticking out more than the other it may notbe engaged correctly which will cause a full bucket notification. If everything checks out ok there try takng the bucket out and push in on the button that the lever from the bucket engages on at the dehumidifier. If the light turns off after you push on the red button that means the bucket is not engaging correctly. If the red light stays on and it doesnt make a difference he button sensor may be defective. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.

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

Brand new ge 65 point dehumidifier seems to not be getting power I plug it in & nothing no lights no sound just nothing


if it's brand new i think you should return it to place of purchase , if not so new anymore , ck the water collection bucket it has a "Tipper" in it that detects a full bucket these are allways getting "out of wack!" and need to be adjusted slightly

My DEHUMIDIFIER shows check-red light


well you didnt mention model but most times this occurs on dehumidifyers it means the bucket full sensor has tripped , this does not mean that bucket is full, it just means that bucket is either not seated all the way in or maybe the sensor has moved in the bucket and no longer hits the sensor as it should , try reposisioning the bucket and full sensor , ck for looseness

We just bought the DE45EJ. We removed it from the box and plugged it in....nothing. No lights, no beeps, no hint of life. The power source is good. The room temperature is normal. The bucket isn't full...


If you just purchased and it won't turn ON, don't waste time trying to fix the unit. Return it to the place of purchase for a replacement unit or a refund.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.
