Question about Dehumidifiers
The continuous drain hole (where the hose is inserted) is clogged. To remove the clog, you will need an 18" long plastic Zip Tie (or something similar. But NO wire cost hangers) that will fit into the hole.
Insert it slowly and push until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work it past this bend until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of Zip Tie. Then, while rotating it, pull it out slowly. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow. Also make sure that the drain hose, when reinserted is not crimped and the end is lower than the drain hose connection. The unit does not have a pump. It relies on gravity to drain water through the hose.
Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
