How to trouble shoot our dehumidifier.
well this might be a small shortcomming of this model but as silly as it sounds even if you use a external hose to drain water from unit the float inside bucket still is active in unit so i bet if you look carefully the little float in corner of bucket is Just " not quite right" a little adjustment of this and im sure you can get it running again

I just purchased a
If the hose is longer than 5 feet, that's part of the problem. The hose must slope down and straight to a floor drain. It relies on gravity to drain.
you just purchased it, the hose connector and inner tubing may be
clogged. This is another reason water is diverted to the bucket. Turn
the unit OFF & unplug it.
Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic
Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connector and tubing.
Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will
need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either
bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip
Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs.
As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water
may follow. Reconnect the hose, plug the unit in and turn the Master
ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or
Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run,
while you monitor the hose for water flow. It may take 5 to 10 minutes for water to appear.
NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers.
Hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solves the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.
