I dropped the water bucket by accident on the dehumidifier, and I have the same problem. Here what I found :
First, remove the water bucket and find the circuit diagram, it is very useful.

E1 code is related to the room humidity sensor, E2 code is related to the room temperature sensor and E3 code is related to the safety thermistor sensor. If you have one of these error code displayed, you will probably have to replace the sensor.

The humidity and temp sensors are located on the same board. To access it, remove the water bucket and you will see the 2 screws holding the front panel. Remove the screws, then gently prayed the front panel. Be careful, there is two plastic clip on the top of the panel and they are really easy to break. The board is located at the top right, under the cover. The safety thermistor is located on a pipe on the right side of the dehumidifier.

    Hi. This comment above is very useful information. I learned by trial and error what my problem was. I have an about 10 year old Danby DDR-503H Dehumidifier. I got at first a flashing E3 message then a solid one where either it stopped running or would run but not dehumidify (The compressor would not run). After taking the entire unit apart and cleaning it up as the coils were disgusting... same issue. So I decided to start at the control panel board and disconnect the connection and see what happens. I found that when I could get it working pulling the thermistor that is attached at the front of the coils would immediately trigger the E3 error. Thus I leaned that this sensor was the cause of the E3 error. To further confirm diagnosis I assumed that this must be a if it gets too cold it cycles the compressor off. So I took the sensor and put it in a glass of warm water, immediately the E3 error went away. It actually runs fine just immersed in a glass of water. Of course I want to be able to re-assemble it so I ordered a replacement one, I order part # 202301300303. It may not have the exact same connector on it but the sensor is identical. I just ordered but am quite sure it will resolve my issue. Saved me buying a new unit that doesn't turn off when it's not running the dehumidify (which all the new Danby's seem to do).

I have a Danby which has the feature for heat on the left-hand side. I just bought it a month ago, but can't lay my hands on the instruction book right now. Can you tell me the proper procedure for...


Lori, the Danby Humidifier, Model # DDR2504 does not have a heating function. It's just a 25 pint dehumidifier. In fact, there are no Danby Dehumidifiers that have a heating function.

By, chance do you have Multifunction Air Conditioning unit, rather than a dehumidifier? If so, please provide the correct model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The Danby Millennium Dehumidifer goes not condense any more. Have unpluged the unit, cleaned all of the filters. Is there a way to reset the unit from the controls?


If you unplugged the heater for 12-15 minutes, after turning OFF the Master On/OFF Switch, the electronics should reset themselves. Also, be sure that you don't have the humidity level set to high. Anything above 60% wont' extract any moisture to speak of. If your unit doesn't have an LED display, set the unit on Minimum.

Hope this helps you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Dehumidifier runs but does not remove moisture.


If the room tempature 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 defost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifers work below a room temo of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensot from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.
