My DeLonghi DEM10 Dehumidifier not producing water.
I have a DeLonghi DEM10 dehumidifier which is about 16 months old and has worked fine until last week when although the appliance is switched on and the fan is working is not producing any water. I've looked through the troubleshooting guide and cleaned the filter etc. but still no water. Can anybody help please ?

Are you worried as to why there is no Water in the Water Tank/Bucket at all?
Well, a few operational basics must be understood by you please.
For the unit to remove moisture from the air and draw water into the bucket/tank, the set relative humidity (%RH) must be below the current or ambient room relative humidity.
Attempt to lower or reduce the setting you have to a lower value and it should start collecting water in the tank.
First, make sure the reservoir is empty. If you plug the unit in and
see a green power light, but the unit won't run, make sure the
reservoir is properly inserted. Many dehumidifiers have switches or
sensors to make sure that the reservoir is placed so that it won't
leak. Look for these sensors and make sure the reservoir is engaging
them. If your dehumidifier has a float or switch to indicate a full
reservoir, make sure this switch isn't being tripped accidentally.
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.
After reading comments and complaints from other frustrated Maytag owners, I just went out and bought a new LG EnergyStar dehumidifier. I'm taping the receipt inside a plastic bag, along with the user manual, to the side of the machine. Hope this one works for a LONG time! Ronnisue
