2. Press the button with the clock symbol below it.
3. Press the up arrow to set how many hours until you want the machine to turn ON. If you have pressed the button for more hours than you wanted then press the down arrow to lower the number of hours.
4. After you have stopped pressing the arrow buttons the display will return to the original display showing temperature and relative humidity.
5. After the above steps are completed the dehumidifier will turn ON in the number of hours that you have set (programmed).

SOURCE: just purchased a Danby dehumidifier

Depending on which mode you have the unit set on, will determine if it shots OFF entirely or the fan continues to run. In the Constant or Continual mode, the compressor will turn OFF, once the humidity extraction level has been reached. But, the fan will continue to operate, in an effort to keep the air circulating, so that if the humidity level rises, the compressor will turn ON and start extracting again.

In Timed Mode (usually 2 hour or 4 hour) , when the compressor turns OFF the fan does too.

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

How do you program it to run for "X" number of


This can be confusing and you're not the first to ask. To put it simply you can only program the timer to turn the unit OFF while it's running. For it to turn ON again, say in 4 hours. You have to wait until the unit is in standby mode, then advance the timer to 4 hours. Four hours later it will turn ON and start functioning.

I hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

We recently purchased a darby dehumidifier-#DDR6009EE-60 pint- and have not been able to program the equip.Can you help us. We need to know how to adjust it so that it will go on and off after specific...


I beleive there is some confusion about the Timer Mode. It can only be set to turn the unit OFF after a selected time period. For example: It's 6pm you want the unit to turn OFF at 10pm. You press the Timer button on the unit itself, in increments, until it reaches 4 hours. At 10pm the unit will turn OFF. As a safety feature, it does not have the capability to turn the unit ON at a selected time and then OFF again. In the interim, until you get really familiar with all the functions of this model, use the control pad on the unit, rather than the remote control.

I hope this helped you understand what the timer does and how to activate & set it.

Is there any way to run automatically. . . where when it reaches humid per cent it shuts off? Can you rig to run for x hrs. per day and then shut off and restart the next day?


Norman, once the unit reaches the extraction level you have it set for, the unit will turn OFF automatically. However, depending on the humidity level in your home, it may take several cycles of running and emptying the bucket until it reached. After that, it should turn OFF, once the level is reached. Then when the humidity level rises above the setting it's on, it will start up again.

Since your unit is a Manually Controlled unit, there's no safe way to "rig' it to run on with a timer. The plug in wall timers are not rated high enough to handle the load of the dehumidifiers operation. Trying to use one, would fry the timer and possibly the dehumidifier.

If you want all the features you mentioned, you will need to purchase a new electronically controlled dehumidifier.

Timer switch mode is inoperable. no lights in timer setting, the lg ld450eal model operates continously. please advise how to program the 2 hour or 4 hour timer


With the Dehumidifier switch on, pressing the Timer Button should changed between 2hr and 4hr mode.

If this is what you're doing and it isn't lighting the LED nextto the 2hr and 4hr can you confirm what setting you have for the humidity?

I went back and rechecked. If the fan mode is selected, you can only set the fan at one of the three speeds. If you leave it in the fan mode, the dehumidifier will not come on.

Once the fan speed is selected, it will run at that speed in the dehumidifier mode. The fan will keep running, even when the dehumidifier (compressor) shuts down.

The only way to get it to turn off is to use the clock setting, which either selects how long it stands-by before starting , or how long it will run before going back to stand-by. DeLonghi calls it "stand-by," we would call it "off." DeLonghi calls unplugged "off."

I've never turned mine to stand-by, because it will never get my entire house down to 30% humidity (I have it where my air handler returns air to the basement). I live in the greater DC Metro area, where 75% humidity is considered extremely dry.

Apparently the normal mode of operation is fan on unless awaiting a clock start, or encountering a clock shut-down; either condition puts it into the "stand-by" mode.

Dehumidifier shuts off after 2 mins


you might have a compressor problem, in which it won't be economical to repair. if you are using the unit in cold weather then it just might be that there is not enough humidity in the air and it is cycling fast.
