Sorry you're getting conflicting answers. The dehumidifier absolutely, positively, definitely shuts off the fan when the desired humidity level is reached. I have no idea how anyone can answer otherwise. If you set the desired humidity at "continuous" (read the manual; an LED will be lit telling you that's how it's set), then yes, the fan will never shut off, nor will the compressor!

Sorry you're getting conflicting answers. The dehumidifier absolutely, positively, definitely shuts off the fan when the desired humidity level is reached. I have no idea how anyone can answer otherwise. If you set the desired humidity at "continuous" (read the manual; an LED will be lit telling you that's how it's set), then yes, the fan will never shut off, nor will the compressor! But if you dial in a desired humidity level (5% increments from 35% to 80%), then when the room reaches the desired humidity level, the compressor shuts off and the fan will keep running for 3 minutes, then shut off. What I'm saying here is totally consistent with what a GE rep posted already. I'm just adding this to let you know that 1.) I bought this exact model last week, read the manual cover to cover, and this is what the manual says, and 2.) I have been running it almost constantly ever since, sometimes in continuous mode (fan never turns off...doh!), and sometimes with the humidity level specified, and I assure you the fan turns off when you reach the desired level. My wife and I are very happy with this unit so far (obviously only one week; no reliability or life-expectancy observations!) I'm going to buy a second one, since I live in a humid location (midwest, and at the bottom of a hill that gets a lot of runoff), and my house is large enough I can see I'll need more than one. That's fine with me; our hope is to get the relative humidity in the house down to 45% so we can increase the A/C thermostat temperature at least 5º, maybe even more. I'm hoping that even running two units nearly constantly, the A/C electricity savings will offset, and we'll have a more comfortable and healthy home. Read Less

Hello - this is Nancy at GE and I am happy to help you with regard to your dehumidifier.
If CO (Continuous) is selected, the dehumidifier will operate continuously at its maximum dehumidification settings if attached to a hose to drain or until the bucket is full. If not set on CO, it will cycle off when the set humidity level is reached and the fan will automatically continue to run for approximately 3 minutes at a fixed setting. If the humidity rises in that 3 minutes, enough that the sensor tells the unit to turn back on, the compressor will start again and the fan will run continuously.
Even when the control is set at the highest setting, the dehumidifier could run continuously during particularly humid periods due to humid air that seeps into the room through walls, doors, and windows. The use of clothes dryers and similar equipment also adds moisture to the air. The continuous operation of the dehumidifier during such humid periods is normal and necessary to maintain desired humidity levels.

Wash it on both sides, dry it, and you can slip it back into place. NOTE: The little half moon shaped tab says FRONT, so that points towards you when returning it into place. To be honest, I'm too old to get down on the ground and look to see if you can see the word FRONT, once the bucket is removed, but that might be possible too. If you see it, pull down on it.
Once you do it, it is no big deal. And there is a filter reset button to reset the filter warning light. Read Less

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1249 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Works great until it needs resetting--then you have to pitch it We've been really happy with this product, but when we plugged it in for a second summer of dehumidifying, it didn't collect water, but sounded and seemed like it was running fine. I called GE and they said there's no "reset" button on the unit, so the only thing you can do when something gets goofed up in the electronics is to throw it away. Crazy. The GE person did tell me that she had put in requests for a reset button because of other customers' experiences with this. I hope they do--hope they're not just trying to get you to buy a new unit every couple years. I was expecting this to run capably every summer for several years. When I buy a new one, it won't be a GE. June 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent product this is our 3rd purchase of this dehumidifier. they have all performed flawlessly. they easily suck 5 to 6 gallons of water out of the air in our lake house every day......yes, that's 6 gallons of water that each one takes our of our house. we have used the water on plants on our patio for the last 4 years. so the reservoirs are very sturdy, as I have carried them all around the house multiple times. we actually use only 2, but my son has 'borrowed' the oldest one for his office. the only negative I can offer is that they do seem to really suck a lot of electricity, but they function really well. should another of them disappear, we will readily purchase this model again. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Dehumidifier This unit runs quieter than the old unit we had. Hose was so much easier to attach for draining and air filter is located in a nice, easy to get to place. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Working Well, Four Days So Far Bought as a replacement for another dehumidifier. This one is working great. Basement is dry and does not smell musty. We run it continuously. Just hooked up the old hose, but had to remove the rubber washer to attach it. So, added some plumbing putty (TFE paste, I think it's called) where the rubber washer would normally go. No drips, so all is well. Hoping for many years of trouble-free operation, but have only run four days. It's at least as quiet as the previous (but different) one. Very nice. June 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Product not worthy. Second dehumidifier in the past 3 years. When I moved to my new house with a basement, the previous owner left one that was working at the time which was towards the end of summer. Last year when I went start it again for summer, I found out it was not working. It would run but did not collect any water at all. I purchased another one of the same model since I liked the look of it but did not know how old that one that stopped working was. The new one worked great for the summer, but when I went start it this year again, I found out it was doing the same thing as the previous one, it runs but does not collect any water. The product. appears to be of good quality, everything looks like new but it does not work. By some of the reviews I just read, is seems like is a one time use only product. Overall I am very dissatisfied with this product and would not recommend it to anyone, is a waist of money and just the look of it, is not necessary a good product. June 17, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by No Drainage Dehumidifier works great but does not automatically drain. We tried every hose configuration possible. Its in our basement so VERY inconvenient to constantly have to go downstairs to manually empty chamber. Returning the unit today! June 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Died after 2 years I have owned several dehumidifiers over the years. I bought this one new in June 2014. It worked fine for two summers. Then, for the third summer, it quickly lost capacity to chill the air at all. This was in June 2016. I opened the unit up and found rusted parts. June 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unit failed within 1.5 years I purchased this GE unit in June of 2014 to replace an existing unit in my basement. It ran fine for about a year and then last fall (fall of 2015) I found the humidity level rising in my basement and the water was not collecting at the same rate as previously. During the winter the unit rarely runs but this spring (2016) it complete stopped working. I submitted a complaint to GE Appliances but they basically told me it was out of warranty so nothing was done for me. Although the unit only costs $200 I do expect it to last more that 1.5 years. I realize failures do occur but the manufacturer's lack interest in the product quality issue I experienced certainly means I will be buying the new unit from another manufacturer . May 14, 2016
