It blows cold air while in heat mode
I have the same problem, I have a defect in the heater electric circuit, 2 small electronic things that looked like small pens with red end, no idea yet what they do, are located directly onto the heater element are faulty, I bypassed them to test the heater and it worked, either one or both requires replacement, tomorrow I,ll go to adisson buying the 2 for 99 cents each, re-weld the circuit and bang, ready to run for another couple of years

Water is leaking out of the bottom
I get this complaint once in a while , most times it boils down to a unit that's being used on a Non level surface , most units are designed to gravity drain , if its not level , then Gravity is pulling wrong direction on unit so it drips on floor ;not in bucket
drips also can come from a frozen evap coil , this is a sure sign of blocked air flow and possible gas charge over heat (leak) unplug unit for 48 hrs to see if water continues to drain out , if so yep it's iced up

Danby 25pt dehumidifier not collecting
Christina, 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.
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 level
in basement applications. 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
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
I hope this will help you troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.
