As I tell most folks who complain about the problem you're having

There are 5 basic, but solvable reason for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter. To remove the filter on your model it will either have a pullout tab on
the right side of the unit, behind the louvers on the front. Or remove the bucket and the filter
frame will be just on the inside top of the opening behind the front louvers.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to clean
the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder
in basement applications level. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks

    Please disregard the answer above, It was meant for another questioner. In your case. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes. Then plug the unit back in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch ON and set the controls as you desire. Hopefully, that 15 minute timeout allowed the unit's electronics to reset themselves and reverted back to the original factory settings.

Lori, the Danby Humidifier, Model # DDR2504 does not have a heating function. It's just a 25 pint dehumidifier. In fact, there are no Danby Dehumidifiers that have a heating function.

By, chance do you have Multifunction Air Conditioning unit, rather than a dehumidifier? If so, please provide the correct model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Flashing green light stays on, unit won't start when you press the on/off button


I believe the unit needs to me reset to the manufacturer's default settings. To do this, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the outlet for 10 - 15 minutes. Then plug the unit back into the wall outlet and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The green light will blink until you change the humidity setting to below what the humidity level is in your home. If you set it higher, it will not turn ON or will turn ON only for a couple of minutes.

Also, check the position of the water collection bucket, to make sure that it's installed properly and has triggered the safety device.

To help you more, I have included a link to your Owners Manual that you can download and print for future reference, if you have misplaced yours. Take good care of your unit and perform routine maintenance regularly. As Danby has discontinued (retired) your model humidifier.
