Customer Questions & Answers

My unit is making a buzzing sound when running is this normal?

It seems when the condenser is on the unit near the filter is making a buzzing sound is this normal? It is in my basement so I don't really care but just want to check this is not a defect as I just purchased it. Doing it's job though and hat a huge help with my basement after I found mold on clothing. I even have a mold armor kit and so far keeping fingers crossed after 48 hours the petri dish has no sign of mold in it.
Asked by: Anonymous
Mine doesn't buzz at all. All I hear is the sound of air whooshing through it. Maybe your filter is loose or something else is loose and causing the noise. I have had mine on nonstop for about a month.

Is this unit Energy Star complient? If not why not?

Asked by: Lorax
I don't know if this is "Energy Star" compliant, but it received some of the highest ratings for energy consumption (meaning it did well) compared to other dehumidifiers. ..which is one of the reasons I bought it. ..not to mention it was the only one Home Depot carried.

Explain the 2 hr & 4 hr delay. Will running the unit 4 hrs a day be acceptable for our needs?

Asked by: Linda
Hi Linda, I am happy to help. When using the DELAY OFF feature on a dehumidifier, you can set the dehumidifier to turn off (power down) after 2 or 4 hours. This turns the dehumidifier entirely off, so it will not come back on unless you manually turn it on again. Thank you for checking with us. Lisa from GE Appliances.

How long should I expect for this unit to perform as a dehumidifier?

I have it connected to the drain in the basement, so I did not notice the unit was out of order until I found signs of moisture in the room.
Asked by: Marvel
Since this unit was useless I'll never get the chance to find out.

What are the symptoms of a frozen compressor/coil, and what should I do?

All of a sudden, my fan set on low has been automatically switching to high periodically, the humidity has not gotten below 60%, and very little water has been collecting. When the fan does lower and the compressor turns on, I hear crackling. Do you think it is frozen? Should I turn off the unit for several hours and just let it defrost? Thanks for any thoughts...
Asked by: Clank
Hello Clank, This is Joyce from GE Appliances. I will be happy to help! I recommend changing your filter and see if that helps. Just in case the dehumidifier is icing up because of poor air flow through the air filters.The lack of air flow around the dehumidifier's refrigerant filled coils can cause the cool air to become cold enough to freeze. If you have any additional questions, please reach out to us directly. Have a good day!

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
The instructions are linked for your dehumidifier on the products page online here. I've took the liberty of giving you the manual link below. It does include how to clean out the filter, which is shown in directions and a diagram on page 7. The filter is removed after you remove the bucket. The filter slides down via the tab. Viewing the link above will explain it in more detail. Joseph

Can we vent the dehumidifier?

We live in FLorida and want to use the dehumidifier on our sailboat. Since it throws out so much heat from the exhaust, we have vented it out through one of our hatches using venting materials. Is this okay to do? Will moist air be drawn in through the exhaust? We can close the hatch when it is not running and we have the boat tightly closed up except where the exhaust is being vented. Thanks for your response.

Hello CLG123 - this is Nancy at GE and I am happy to help you. Since our appliances have been designed to meet specific requirements, we do not support altering or changing any aspect of the design or installation. Our dehumidifiers are not designed nor tested to be vented. I hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!

How do I know which size is right for my basement? This or 50pint. How do i use one of these?

Partially finished, mostly Cement walls, no moisture, cold/muggy in winter, humid/muggy in summer, no air, no mold or mildew, 1308 sq ft , basement doesn't sit under entire house so maybe 300 less idk
Asked by: Tweety
Dear Tweety - this is Nancy at GE Appliances and I am happy to help you. If sized properly, a dehumidifier should maintain the relative humidity level that is set on the controls. The optimum relative humidity level for a room is generally between 30% and 50%. If the dehumidifier is oversized for the area, the unit may cycle on and off more often and some decline in performance could be noticed. If you have a very damp basement, then we recommend a 50 pint unit. I hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!

30-Pint Dehumidifier is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 1070.

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!

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.
