The most common problem is that the humidity extraction level is set to high. Set it to it's lowest setting. If you have an LED screen on your unit, the lowest setting will probably be 35%. Or in the case of no LED screen, Minimal will be the setting you want to use.

Since you're using a drain hose, I assume the unit is in the basement. If that's the case, the ambient air temperature at floor level, may be to cold for the unit to operate properly. Most dehumidifiers struggle at air temperatures between 40 and 60 degrees F. Try placing the unit up off the floor on something sturdy that can handle the weight (including a full tank of water) and the vibration during operation.

Hope this helped you trouble shoot and solve the problem.Please let me know. Thanks.

Says bucket full and it is empty


There is a float switch somewhere to measure the level of water in the bucket. That switch is out of position or broken. This can happen if you are not careful removing and re-installing the bucket. Look at the area around the bucket and you should be able to find and fix the switch. Make sure the power is off when you are doing this.

Soleusair 45 pint dehumidifier won't drain through hose


We have a Soleus Air 30 pint that initially would not drain through the hose that we attached and dropped down the sump drain. After reading here, I tried tilting it back about a quarter inch and that didn't fix the problem. Then I tilted it forward a quarter inch (I put a couple pieces of cardboard under the back wheels) and it started draining properly. It is doing a marvelous job of dehumidifying the house now!

Display lights up E 1 nothing else happens. What does the E 1 mean? Unit is 4-5 years old.


On models a lttle later than yours E1, indicates that the air intake filter needs to be removed and cleaned. Probably, the same thing as yours. Before doing so, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. If you wash the filter use warm water and dish washing liquid, Rinse thoroughly and allow to completely before reinstalling. DO NOT operate the unit without the air filter in place.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.
