Customer Questions & Answers

How much heat is produced from unit?

Asked by: Thom
Correct answer: HOT! 109 F (in a basement in Syracuse, NY). Adds 2500 BTU/hour sensible heat to remove 30 pints of water/day. Summary: Exhaust air is 109 F in an 82 F basement (that's +27 F). It adds 2500 BTUs of energy as sensible heat, while removing up to 1285 BTU of latent heat. Basement used to be 60-65 F without dehumidifier at this time of the year (end of August, in Syracuse, NY). Now it is 82 F. Last night was 66 F, and it is 76 F outdoors as I write this, at 2 pm. Important: You can't measure exhaust air by holding your hand on it. Fan is extremely fast, it can transfer energy with a smaller change in temperature, and your skin is fooled by wind, can't detect temperature correctly. Instead, put your room thermometer over the exhast (upside down if colored liquid reservoir is on top), hold it down for a minute (hold from a far end, away from the reservoir) so it won't fly away and break. Obviously, don't block the fan, make minimal impact on air flow, if you can. I got 109 F. Total energy consumed: 1245 BTU/hour Increase in sensible heat @ 30-pints/day dehumidification: 2530 BTU/hour Decrease in latent heat (vapor removed, doesn't change air temparature): 1285 BTU/hour MartinR gave us 1245 BTU from electricity consumed. Chas48 said if it dehumidifies 1 pint (~ 1 lb) of water per hour, that's 970 BTU of latent heat. Unit is rated at 30 pints a day = 1.25 pints an hour, which is 1285 BTU/hour But as Adam pointed out, latent heat removed by cooling vapor to water is then added by dehumidifier as sensible heat into the room -- it heats up the room, increases the air temperature. So Chas48 is *WRONG* in subtracting these numbers to get heating effect. In fact, if he had reemoved 1285 from 1245, we would get -40 BTU. And clearly, this unit is not cooling anything. Dehumidifier versus AC: A small window AC unit is often 6000 BTU, and many small AC units focus more on sensible heat than latent heat (lower air temperature first, not worry about converting vapor to water). Running this dehumidifier made our basement quite warm.

There is a light that indicates the filter needs cleaning and I can't find any instructions

I have no idea of how to do that. Need assistance.
Asked by: boohoo
This is a washable air filter. Just remove it and either wash off the lint build-up, or take the filter outside and give it a few hard shakes and that is really all it needs. I've never washed mine, no need to.

Red light

Why does the red light go on after I have attached a hose to drain moisture? At times even when the bucket is attached this light goes on and the dehumidifier fails to run.
Asked by: Jwd
Hello Jwd - this is Nancy at GE Appliances. I'm sorry to hear that the red light is not going out on your dehumidifier after attaching the drain hose. Please check that the garden hose where it attaches to the unit is not loose or have a bad connection as this can cause leaking into the bucket and through the hose at the same time. I hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!

I want to install in the masterbedroom which has window condensation problems in winter. Will the noise interfere with sleep?

Asked by: alangski
It might. Ours is in a room where we watch television and we like to turn it off when watching. It has three fan settings, The lowest is still a little loud. You could get used to it, though.

30-Pint Dehumidifier is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 1071.

Take a lot of water out of the air in the basement and does it will. It helped remove the odor in the basement. I'm glad it has no alarm on it to tell you it is full of water. I just go down once a day and empty it. Some people, similar to clothes in the dryer, like to be told that it is done, so maybe an option could be added for those who like to know. For me, It does such a good job, I just know I need to go down once a day.

To prevent this from happening, I run a dehumidifier in my master bathroom for about three to four hours in the evening after everyone has taken their showers. This GE dehumidifier is replacing a five year old Frigidaire that was recalled by the manufacturer - because it could possibly catch on fire. (Yikes!) The GE dehumidifier is fully assembled - there was nothing to put together - I just plugged it in and it is running now. I really like that I am able to set the humidity level and it turns on and off automatically to maintain the level selected. I also like that it will notify me when the filter needs changing. I'm pretty sure that I should have cleaned the filter in my old dehumidifier more often than I did. I hope that this new one is as reliable as my other GE appliances are - only time will tell.

It is in the bathroom to help decrease the amount of humidity in the air. It does help and the tank fills up fast. I do like the option of using the delay off button turn allow my dehumidifier to run for 2 hours or 4 hours and then automatically shut off. I have had the dehumidifier over a month and think it is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, compact, effective I purchased this to help speed up some drywall repairs in a basement space. Works great, looks good. There are larger models with greater liter/day capacity, but this worked great for my needs.

When it works, it works well, filling the tank after about 8 hours of operation in a 74-degree room at relative humidity from 50-60%. The intake is on the front and it blows air up through the top, which allows it to be positioned fairly close to a wall. It’s small size is great for a smaller house (1,500 square feet). However, this our second GE 30-pint dehumidifier. The previous unit’s compressor stopped working after less than 90 days. (Home Depot issued a full refund.) This second unit has started to exhibit some of the same symptoms after only a month: The fan will run, but the compressor—even set at continuous operation in a damp room—will not turn on, even after hours of operation. The solution has been to unplug the unit from the wall for 30 seconds or so. Plug it in and turn it on. The symptoms seem to be related to the electronics in the unit. The wheels on the unit make it easy to move on hardwood floors, but it feels a little top-heavy on carpeting. I don’t trust the plastic handle on the top for carrying. It feels underbuilt for the weight. The only features we use are continuous operation and fan speed adjustments (low, medium, high). I’d pay twice as much for a dependable dehumidifier. Based on reliability, I would not recommend this dehumidifier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steady Worker I had a water problem in my basement. After the source of the water was stopped, there was a musty and unpleasant humidity in the area. After a few days of use with this humidifier, the odor has cleared up and the area is gradually losing the extreme humidity. This unit is easy to operate and keeps chugging along. It has 3.75 gallon capacity. I wheel the unit to my outside door and pour it in my garden. It shuts off automatically when the container is full, so I don't have to worry about it spilling over. It provides on-going information of the relative humidity of the area in which it is working. This small unit is easy to handle, and inconspicuous.
