Are they both in a central location, if your running more then 1, then they have to be. If not then 1 is working harder then the other.

Just bought a dehumidifier in the ground level of a high ranch I am very frustrated because I dump the water every day I waas told to keep the humidity at 45- 50 but it keeps on going up This seems to be a...

It isn't necessary you run it 24 hours a day. You can set it to be on for 2 or 4 hour intervals and then it Turns OFF. However, I am a bit concerned that you have the humidity extraction level set a bit high for a basement application. 50% is more than most basements need to be. Lowering it to 35%, will remove more humidity and eventually will run for shorter periods of time. It takes several days of operation for the dehumidifier to get the humidity under control.

If you have a floor drain in your basement, you can use a hose to daring the water, rather than having to empty the bucket daily (which is not that unusual). See your Owner's Manual on how to connect a 48" length of garden hose to the dehumidifier.

I hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

Kenmore # 58052650100 this is my humidifiers model number my question is my first time using i need to know how to use this machine this machine stars 30% to 70% what is the right number to use? i have...

Christian, simply put ... the lower the percentage the more moisture it will extract. The higher the percentage the less it will extract and just maintain that level.

The lowest level is what you want to use in a wet basement. If the ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 & 60 degrees F, you want to get the dehumidifier up off the floor on to something sturdy, that can handle the weight and the vibration. The reason for this, is that most dehumidifiers will not work well at or between those temperatures. Once the water collection bucket is FULL, the Bucket Full light will come on the the dehumidifier will shut OFF. The bucket most be emptied and properly reinstalled, before the unit will turn ON again. Also, rather than run it in continual mode, run it in a timed mode. Usually either 2 hours of 4 hours.

It seems you don't have the Owner's Manual for this unit. It would be wise to get one. Since it's a Sears Kenmore, you can get it online from Sears Parts Direct. This will help you in the future in performing routine maintenance on the unit.

In the meantime, I hope I helped you understand some of the basic operation of your dehumidifier. Please let me know. Thanks.

My basement had a lot of water. My dehumidifier is running but is not gathering any water. What can I do?

It may be gathering water, but the tubing to the drain bucket may be clogged. Turn the unit off, unplug it and remove the drain bucket. With a flashlight, look up into the interior of the cabinet and you will see a small tube or water outlet. Using a flexible Zip Tie (at least 6' long), carefully insert it into the drain tubing or hole. And carefully move it back and forth. This should remove any clogs.

Also, check the filter on the unit, as it to may need cleaning, too.

If you've had this unit for a number of years and the above trouble shooting doesn't solve the problem, it may be time to replace the unit.

Also, if you continually have "a lot of water" in your basement, you might want to install a sump pump. In the long run, it's a better solution and will pay for itself in a couple of years.

Goldstar dehumidifier model DH305Y6 is there an outlet on this model for a hose so can drain into sump pump?

I have a Goldstar dehumidifier, Model DH305Y6. I bought it about 5 years ago at a local Walmart. During the summer I run it in the basement, here in south-central Pa. When it was brand new it worked very well, for about 2 yrs. Then it began turning on & off very irregularly. At first I thought it was the sensor on the front of the coils. So I moved it to the lower left side of the coils, and had the same results. The other day the water heater in the basement developed a leak. About 300 gals. of water covered the floor. After sumping/wet-vac'ing down to a wet carpet, I pulled out the dehumidifier and plugged it in,(the filter was cleaned before put away last summer). It began its on/off cycling again. It runs for about 2-3 mins., then shuts off for about 5-10 mins. So, I took the On/Off switch apart and read the resistance. It read 48k, for the 50k switch. I turned the switch all the way left to all the way right and it went from 48k, down to about 8k. The two wires to the switch were attached to the #2 and #3 poles,(only 3 poles). I did some testing, then removed the wires and re-soldered them to the #1 and #3 poles. I put everything back together, and now it works. It runs constantly, but it works/runs just fine. I need to get the basement dry, so I will let it run until the job is done. In the Spring I will get a new 50k potentiometer,(on/off switch), and see if that works. I will post results if I remember to.

My dehumidifier does not collect any water.

One of two things is happening here.

1. Either the compressor isn't running or...

2. The water is not being routed to the collection bucket properly. This dehumidifier has an option to connect to a hose that can be routed to a drain. Look in the back of the unit to see if you see a connection that could accomidate a garden hose. If you see this and there is no hose connected you may be dumping the water on the floor instead of the bucket. This could explain why your carpets are damp.

Dehumidifer seems to run constantly

With that low of a setting it will most likely be kicking in alot more often. Most people run their dehumidifiers between 60-65%. It is a matter of preference. Also some basements hold out moisture more than others. There could be alot of variables affecting this. One thing you need to make sure is that you have the correct placement. Make sure you dont keep it near the sump pump or any other standing water because those areas have more humidity due to the water being there. Also make sure it is not in an area like a laundry room because when your washing machine despenses water it is despensing moisture into the air. I try to keep it at a central location if at all possible and away from areas that have water. If you found this solution helpful please rate it when you get a chance. Thanks - Tech101
