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.

Actually, your husband is correct. The settings reflect the amount of humidity you want to remain in the house. I really don't think you want to leave 50 to 60% humidity in the house.

35% removes the greatest amount of humidity.

Basement smells musty, fan won't stay on continuous


Barbara, are you running the unit in a continuous mode (i.e Using a hose to drain the unit)? Or is the water draining into the water collection bucket?

If you are not using a hose for continual drainage, the fan will not run constantly. It requires that, for continual operation.

Also, you may have the humidity extraction level set to high. Lower it to 35%. Also, remove and check the air intake filter, as it may need cleaning.

Dehumidifiers that are not Low Temp models have a difficult time operating in basement applications. Because the air temp at floor level is colder than at shoulder level. At temperatures between 40 & 60 degree F, regular dehumidifiers struggle to keep up. Raising it up off the flow on to a sturdy table, counter top, etc that can handle the weight of the unit, plus a full bucket of water can really help.

I hope this was of assistance and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Our de-humidifier is running cool but there is no water in the bucket, should there be?


Is it warm outside,and do you have your A.C. on? Dehumidifiers ,just like A.C. systems, remove humidity. If the weather is cold, put an open gallon of water in front of your unit and let it run a day or so. If the bucket gets water in it, and the container of water goes down, then the unit is working.

Have Whirlpool AD50USS - unit ran for over 24 hours in DRY mode but collected no water. Should have been water in bucket as basement smells musty.


If the room temperature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
I out mine over the floor drain.
Turn off and it will defrost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifiers work below a room temp of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensor from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.

When do you use the dehumidifier?


In areas with poor circulation and humidity over 80%.
If the room temperature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
