Question about DeLonghi DE500 Dehumidifier

1 Answer

I have the Delonghi DE500P and the lever that indicates the bucket is full will not stay down and therefore the bucket full light remains on and the fan will not start. when i use my finger to push this lever (that is behind the bucket) down the fan will come on starting the dehumidifier. So i know that the actual appliance works just the lever is causing it not to stay on.

Replacing the switch/lever is more trouble and costly than it's worth. That's if you can find the part. I suggest, that you try reinstalling the bucket very carefully, making sure it making contact with the lever in the proper position. Lots of times, the bucket is simply not being inserted properly and it misses the switch. If that doesn't work and you want to repair it yourself. Contact Delonghi Parts Dept 800-865-6330.

Hope this helped you.

Have a dehumidifier, Delonghi DE500P. Unit operates but no water collecting in bucket.Level set to 35%. Can freon be added to recharge?


the short answer is yes , but id caution you on the need too first?

first check the basics:
bucket full lite not on (blinking)
filters clean ?
both fan and compressor inside running (sometimes the fan runs but the compressor does not?) listen carefull for them both?
if your unit needs recharged odds are it's not financial feasible to do so , first you have to fix cause of gas leaking out ? what ever that is ? then you need to add service ports and finally you need a gas charge , this would or could cost hundreds of dollars , a entire new unit is less 200 bucks unless you do all this work your self , but id tend to think if you had all the tools and knowledge to do that youd not of asked here in the first place

Dehumidifier isn't not removing humidity. Fan and lights are working, but the water container remains empty. It is not pulling water from air. I think that the heating element may not be working.

The bucket full light stays on while it is empty. the humidity control doesn't change. the unit is not going on.


There should be a switch that is activated by a float lever that if tripped will make the bucket full light stay on, and will prevent the unit from going on.

If this light is on when the bucket is empty, maybe try to jiggle the float lever, or investigate why the switch is activated when the bucket is empty.

Good luck on this repair.

My DeLonghi dehumidifier model DE500P is tripping the breake


the motor is tight, (can't turn) lubricate the motor bearings with light machine oil. retest. rust causes this. the motor "tries" to turn, more power is needed, still can't turn, power exceeds safe limits: breaker trips.

De500p dehumidifier pump stopped working, help!!!


I only got as far as disconnecting the filter between the small water bucket and the pump. I was able to get the pump working again after I cleaned the water bucket and filter by flushing them repeatedly with fresh water. The lines after the pump contained cloudy water, but I figured since the pump was able to push it out past the pump already, it shouldn't cause problems this far down. It saved a lot of time and hard work not having to disconnet the rest of the tubing or take the water bucket off. I also realized if I disconnet the first water collection tubing from just under the front panel and point the open end down, all the water in the bucket flows out. This part is so easy to get to. Just pull out the big collection tank and it's right there on the left toward the back. I can do this every week! Maybe then nothing will sit long enough in the small water bucket to turn into any kind of filter-clogging material.
