Put empty bucket in,it runs for minute,then shuts off.
need a switch that won't shut off. Where could I find
one my zip code is 44451.
The switch may not be the problem. However, a dirty or clogged air intake filter or the humidity extraction level set to high could be.
Turn the unit OFF & unplug it.
Remove and clean the air intake filter thoroughly. Be sure the filter is completely dry, before reinstalling. Never operate the unit without the filter in place.
After the filter is dry, reinstall it, plug the unit and turn it ON. Lower the humidity extraction level to 35%. If you have an analog unit (No LED screen) set the humidity extraction knob on Maximum.
And finally, be sure that the water collection bucket is installed properly and is not vibrating loose when the unit runs. It should fit squarely into it's holder, making contact with the bucket safety removal switch on the back wall of the bucket holder. When installed properly, it should not tilt down at the bottom of the bucket.
All of the above should solve the problem and you won't need to purchase a new switch. But, in the unlikely event, that you will have to. You will need to furnish the Brand Name of the unit and the Correct Model Number. As, they are not all the same.
Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.
