Dehumidifier stopped working because "water bucket full" indicator light stays on, although there is no water in bucket.


In the water bucket is a float assm. scale forms on the assm. and causes it to stick. Remove the float assm. and carefully remove the scale. Should start working again once done. If not you may have to replace it.

When the Bucket Full Light is on, none of the controls (other than the On/Off) will work. If you haven't
emptied the bucket, do so. Then make sure the bucket is reinstalled properly into the holder. Failure to do this will cause the Bucket Full Light to stay ON. While you have the bucket out, check the inside of it for a float valve. It may be stick in the UP position. If so, jiggle the handle to make it return to the DOWN position.

I hope this helped you and thanks for Choosing FixYa.

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.

Upon start up the full bucket light goes on even though I have a hose connected


make sure the hose connection did not work loose. If it did, water will slowly drip and fill up the bucket over time. If you know the bucket is empty, try readjusting it- it may just be cocked a little bit and this will affect the switch.

Are you supposed to put water in the bucket of the dehumidifier or is the water that is in the bucket now from using the dehumidifier? Dumb question I am sure. But I am renting and have never used one...


The dehumidifier condenses the water on its coils and then it drips into the bucket. Dump out all of the water when the bucket is full. This model has a light that tells you when it is full. If the dehumidifier gets ice on the coils, it needs repair (low refrigerant).

I hope this helps.
