The dehumidifier machine is running
The problem you're having with your dehumidifier, may be the result of one or more of the basic, but solvable problems and solutions listed below:
1. The Humidity Extraction Level is set to High. Lower it to 32-35%.
2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Remove, inspect the filter and clean if necessary. It it's a
Washable Filter, allow it to thoroughly dry before reinstalling it.
3. Obstructed Air Flow. A minimum of 12" to 18" clear air around the entire unit, must be
4. The ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees F. This is particularly true in
basement applications. The air temp at floor level is colder than the air temp at shoulder level.
Dehumidifiers don't work well in that temperature range (Unless, it's a Low Temp model). Raise
the unit up off the floor on to a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight of the
unit, plus a full tank of water.
If you troubleshoot the 4 things listed above, it may quickly solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
