Your compressor needs to be diagnosed, if freon is not getting pumped to the coil, this would be why.

Once you punch a hole in the receptacle, what type of screw cap would fit.


Most of the hose/drain connections i have seen on these have a std gardenhose fitting so you can use a std garden hose to direct the water over to drain, caps for garden hoses are easyly available from any garden supply store , but i do caution you on your thought process of hooking up a hose makes this a maintence free option, it does not as hose and filters still need constant cleaning , especally in high humidity seasons

Pump not working


If you've checked power to the pump and it isn't working, it needs replacing, unless it's blocked with slimy deposits. Try a vacuum cleaner on the drain hose outlet

Hose connected but not draining and bucket filling


I am also an air conditioning tech, with same problem and same soleus dehumidifier problem. you must remove the plug and install the drain line hose adapter. Hose must lay flat and have no "hills" for water to drain. With this done pull your drain pan out and set aside. look under right side facing the dehumidifier and you will see a small spout. Has a lip like a little tea pot. Plug that spout. I used a foam ear plug used in work shops. Now give the front of dehumidifier a slight rise on front wheels about the thickness of a pies of cardboard 1/8 to 3/16 of an inch. Now put drain pan back in an start up. The problem is the drain pan was made with very little differance in pitch between the the hose drain and the bucket drain. Remember to check your drain hose periodically and the air filter also. Good luck

We have Danby Model DDR557HE-7 and cannot locate our Manual. We need to disconnect hose and have excess water go to bucket. How is this done?? If we had copy of Manual we wld be able to search same...


All Danby dehumidifiers, regardless of the model number operate the same way.
The link below to a 50 pint model should provide all the info you need.

http://www.danby.ca/cms/uploads/products/en_manual/DDR5009%2C_6009%2C_7009REE_EFOM.pdf

However, I think you'll find that draining into a bucket is not an option. As the hose drain relies entirely on gravity to drain. So, it will not drain down and then up into a bucket. The hose drainage method, is designed to drain into a floor drain or a sump.

Hope this helps you.

Hose not draining, bucket only fills


The easiest way to unstop the hose is to blow air through the end enough to clear the clumped up dust at the other end using air compressor or air pump.

Water bucket


If yours has a button/switch to turn on a pump, that will redirect the water to the drain. Sllee

Drain hose not working


Hi, had the same problem. Not a glogging one. I have the model DDR503H. If it is insisting on filling the reservoir, it is because you haven't put the cap you removed from de back of the unit to plug the hose on the tank water exit. You have to first remove the tank and on the roof of this space, you will see the water tank exit where you can screw the cap removed from the back. You place back the tank into the unit and now the water won't have other choice then leak thru the hose. Also. to clean up the filter, I don't need to unscrew the top cover. I just remove the tank and on the roof of the space, there is a grey handle with arrows on it and I just pulled down, it comes out and you can then clean it up.

Hope this help,

Steeve

Drain hose attachment


Checkout this website...they have an owners manual you can download: http://us.lgservice.com/ A little hard to find, but it's there. In short, there is a small hole in the back of the dehumidifier between the cord handles. There will be a cap held in place over the hole by three small connectors. With some pliers, remove the hole cover. Take your hose connector and place it in the hole until it won't go any further (you can feel it hit the front of the water bucket). The instructions will show pressing the tab of your hose connector into the bottom of the hole to hold it in place. Don't know about yours, but mine is too long to do that. Connect a short length of garden hose to the threaded end of the connector and you've got it. Instructions say hose has to be flat leading straight from the dehumidifier to a drain, so don't place the draining end of the hose up in a sink or anything, use a floor drain. Hope this helps!
