My dehumidifier was running great. The tank was full. I removed and emptied it. When I stuck it back in, the control panel went dark and now it does nothing. The cord is plugged in to a powered recptacle. Is there a reset or something? Where might I find an owerns manual? Thank you.
Independent of the bucket switch, the control panel should light when the unit is plugged into a powered receptacle and the on/off switch is depressed. The problem is likely the 12 amp. fuse located inside of the unit.

Re: No lights on control panel. Plug is powered.
Trader, there was a service flash out on this model. The problem is that the bucket is not making the switch. The solution is to bend the end of the bucket switch with a pliers until it makes contact and starts. Date of the flash was June 2005. Should be an easy fix...Catriver..post back.

The full light normally comes on when the tank is full. Emptying the tank and re-installing the tank should allow the system to reset. However, if the tank isn't pushed in all the way... the full switch and indicator light will be fooled into reporting a full condition. My suggestion is, first pull out the tank, look at the float and the tank full switch. Become familiar with these two items and confident that 1) the float is not stuck in the up position; 2) the tank full switch that the float is supposed to actuate will toggle (press your finger against it and let it return.) After this exercise make sure the tank is seated all the way in place. If your issue is mechanical, its easier to fix than if it's electrical, and if it is electronic... (just pray that it isn't).
Mosr dehumidifiers have a switch that shuts the unit off when the water tank is full check this float to make sure it is not stuck in the off position also empty the tank if it is full.Hope this helps.
The tank may be full. Your dehumidifier has a safety device that turns off the dehumidifier when the water tank is full. Usually the tank itself either presses against a switch or there's a device connected to the tank that triggers a switch when the tank is in place and full.
If you've emptied the tank and the unit doesn't run, inspect the place where the tank rests to see if there's a switch or mechanism that's not being activated. You may be able to turn it on with a simple flick of your finger.
An automatic overflow switch and Container “Full” indicator light are provided to turn the dehumidifier off before the container overflows. When the indicator light on the control panel glows, the water container must be emptied. If the light remains on and the dehumidifier does not begin to operate make sure the float is attached to the water container.
When the condensate water container is full, the indicator lights up. 1. Turn the power off before removing container. Wait 3 minutes for any remaining water to drain into the condensate container. 2. Tilt the container forward then lift carefully by the handle. 3. Empty and gently re-insert the container. Important:This water is not suitable for drinking.
