Question about Danby DDR3009EE Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Bucket full indicator light keeps coming on and the bucket is empty. I've reinserted the bucket many times thinking it's was inserted wrong but I still can't get it to work. The dehumidifier is brand new and only runs for a few seconds, then the bucket full indicator light comes on and it stops. What am I doing wrong? I have a Danby Premiere Model DDR30E.

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

When full bucket light comes on water is emptied and bucket put back in position. Fan will start and then the full bucket light comes back on beeps and shuts off.


You have to be sure bucket is replaced exactly where it should go or the bucket will hold the switch in, thinking it is full. If you have a floor drain close by,remove the bucket and set the dehumidifier over or next to drain so water will go down it,then you don't worry about bucket getting full.If it doesn't run with bucket off, maybe defective switch. unhook wires to the bucket switch and hook or tape together,if dehumidifier runs then switch is bad. UNPLUG FROM OUTLET BEFORE DOING THIS. IF YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND ELECTRICITY GET QUALIFIED HELP!!

The light indicating that "bucket


This usually happens when either the Float Valve in the bucket is stuck in the UP position (if yours is so equipped. Jiggle it to get it to return to the DOWN position.

If you humidifier's bucket is not so equipped. It's usually an indication that the bucket was not reinstalled properly, after it was removed. To check and correct this, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Remove the bucket and reinsert it, making sure that it fits "squarely" in the bucket holder from Top to Bottom. Once installed, make sure the bottom of the bucket is not tilted down in any way. Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. If it was reinstalled correctly, the bucket full light should have gone off and the unit will run as it should, if the humidity extraction level is set low enough.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

The bucket full light blinks even though it is empty and there is "01" in the screen where the digital humidity level is indicated. Pushing the up or down arrow does not change the "01" number. Unit won't...


Take out the bucket and locate the bucket full switch inside the cabinet. Depress the switch and see if it comes on. If so, you may have to add a shim to the bucket or strap it in with a bungie cord as the bucket is jiggling and makes the unit think that it has been removed.
