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.

A solid, well-built device that I have used in my basement for the last two years.  It does what I need it to do and maintains a relatively constant humidity level.  Living in Northern Virginia, this is an absolute must as the humidity is intolerable during the summer.  This product receives near continuous use from early-May to mid-September.  I have it run into a condensate pump, which handles removal of the water so that it can remain on indefinitely.  It has not failed, and I have not been terribly proactive with my maintenance.  I periodically clean the filter, but otherwise it is a plug and play unit.  I employ this unit in conjunction with two others in my admittedly rather large, rather poorly insulated basement.  It's an integral part of the team that I've located in my home gym, a place I spent a fair bit of time.  It performs excellently, pulling water and keeping the environment at an acceptable humidity.  Measured against an electronic humidity gauge, it usually gets the level to about what I set it at although there have been a few times where the humidity gauge shows the room at a humidity higher than the unit.  All in all, it's close enough that I accept its performance. Last year I used this as a stand-alone device reliant on the onboard bucket to catch water.  That is probably not the best way to use it.  In fact, I am very glad to have switched to coupling a drain hose with this unit for this season as it was not very well suited to stand-alone use.  The 30 pint bucket fills up extremely quickly and fast became an absolute chore to empty.  I was emptying the bucket 2 to 3 times a day last year, which is not ideal.  While I did not experience any of the issues other reviewers noted regarding the off switch failing, time will tell if the continuous cycle I now have is a long-term solution.

I wanted a new dehumidifier that looked good to keep in my updated bathroom in the basement and this fits the bill but I think that is what it only does. I have 2 older Kenmore dehumidifiers and they take ten times the moisture out of the air compared to this unit. I have had the new unit running for 2 weeks straight with it set at sometimes at 40 and 50% and it still hasn't moved the level indicator in the tank. It does take water out of the air but I wouldn't trust it in an emergency.

I live in a 900 sq. ft. apt. and the HVAC system does not remove humidity. You can set the AC to 70 and wake up in a cold sweat, That is because these very budget AC units do not feature "accumulator or dryers" to remove the humidity from the air hence; You can set the AC to 70 and wake up in a cold sweat. OK This dehumidifier 30-pint from GE is amazing. I can run it 9 hours and empty the tank (upon the built in alarm.) This device reliably removes 30 pints of water/humidity from my living space every 2.5 days. 1000 sq ft or less, buy it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money I've owned 2 of these. I used them in my garage for keeping the moisture level down. The 1st one lasted about 4 years before the humidity sensor went out. The sensor is no longer available. So I bought another one, this one lasted 2 years before it's humidity sensor went out. Just my luck, you can't get a sensor for this one either. I talked with a repair shop, they said that it would be cheaper just to buy another dehumidifier... What a racket!

It's easy to use and adaptable to different situations with multiple fan speeds, a timer, and an adjustable humidity setting. Everything works as it should, the unit shuts off when the water container is full and it is easy to remove and empty. I bought it for a 'damp' motorhome and for 3 days straight it removed about 15-20 pints of water a day. I'm now a happy (and dry) camper!

I've had this unit operating non stop for 2 weeks now and it pulls approx. a gallon of water a day from my house on the low setting. It feels warmer and more comfortable in my house now and my allergies to mold have dramatically improved. I would recommend this product to anyone who suffers from mold allergies or just needs to dry out their house.

The dehumidifier does a great job and is very simple to operate and empty. The only issue I have with the entire process is the 1st unit was delivered via UPS and was damaged. I took it to the nearest Home Depot store to exchange it for an undamaged unit, but had to reorder a replacement unit. I had ordered this unit for my son who lives in Long Beach, CA, we had the 1st unit sent to our home in Irvine, Ca about 40 miles away. When I went to the local Home Depot in Long Beach to exchange the damaged unit, I was told I had to reorder a replacement. I wanted it delivered to the Long Beach store for pickup by my son so I wouldn't have to drive the 40 miles to deliver it myself. I was told if I ordered it and had it sent to the Long Beach store for pick up it would take 10 days to 2 weeks for delivery. However if I had it delivered to my home in Irvine, CA, I'd get it in 3 days. I had it delivered to Irvine and drove the 40 miles to my son's in Long Beach.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Dehumidifier This dehumidifier did everything I have wanted it to do! It has helped take all the moisture out of my basement, got rid of the nasty moisture loving bugs, and the stank basement odor! Very thankful that my basement no longer smells. Great products. I will always support GE.
