The only thing you really need to check is that collector coil that the the water is supposed to condense upon, much like the "sweat" on a glass of ice water. If that collector coil is not nice and cold, then your machine needs freon or has some other serious problem.

Never no water in dehumdidifer to empty


I'd suggest you (1) make sure dehumifier is plugged in, (2) the circuit it's connected to is live (breaker not tripped and fuse not blown - this is easily tested by plugging in an appliance (e.g., hair dryer) you know works). If the unit turns on, it is likely defective - unless there is a hose connected to the dehumidifier that reroutes the water removed from the air to a drain (is there moisture collecting somewhere within 6-10' of the unit?). If it doesn't turn on, and you've troubleshooted the above to ensure there is electricity to the receptacle, then it's either defective or the moisture setting for removal needs to be adjusted for the humidity in your basement. Perhaps it's dryer down there than you thought, or your hygrostat (? - whatever the doohickey is called that senses humidity level) is set at too high a level that it never turns on/trips in your area. Hope it helps.

My husband saids run the dehumifier on low setting to take out dampness in the basement? I said no, run the dehumifier on higher setting like 50 or 60 to take more water out of he basement? What should...


Actually, your husband is correct. The settings reflect the amount of humidity you want to remain in the house. I really don't think you want to leave 50 to 60% humidity in the house.

35% removes the greatest amount of humidity.

Hope this helped answer your question and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Dehumidifier is running and the filter is clean but it hasn't collected water in a couple weeks. It is in the basement, which is very moist, so I know there IS water to collect!!

My dehumidifier does not collect any water.


One of two things is happening here.

1. Either the compressor isn't running or...

2. The water is not being routed to the collection bucket properly. This dehumidifier has an option to connect to a hose that can be routed to a drain. Look in the back of the unit to see if you see a connection that could accomidate a garden hose. If you see this and there is no hose connected you may be dumping the water on the floor instead of the bucket. This could explain why your carpets are damp.
