Question about Danby DDR586R Dehumidifier - 58 Pints Dehumidifier
I have a Danby Silhouette dehumidifier model DDR583R. The humidity is reading 84% and has remained around that level for months. I purchased a simliar unit (Danby DDR5588RHE) and it is showing a humidity reading of 69% (the units are beside each other). Both units are set for 50% and it sounds like my original unit's compressor is working. I think that the humidistat is providing a false reading. Your guidance is appreciated.
Dehumidifiers are generally a very simple appliance, however a humidistat is one of those items a person tends to rely on to provide feedback. You may want to remove the grille area where the humidistat is mounted and inspect for foreign material in the way of the sensor. If nothing foreign is detected then you should replace the humidistat.
If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
