This is the second unit I have bought. Set on only 50%, it freezes up and when the ice on the evaporator melts, it does not train into the hose, but into the bucket. The bucket fills and the unit shuts off. At last look, it runs continuously but does not shut off and the evaporator is warm, the humidity level is over 60% (checked by a second instrument) and it is set at 45%. No water is coming out of the hose. It worked when new, a few months ago, but not now. Same story with the first one. Drill a hole in the bucket and attach the hose to the bucket instead of the drain connection to prevent this. It won't make it work if the compressor won't run, though. Read Less

Hello jerry - this is Nancy at GE and I am happy to help you. Once the humidity level is reached, the compressor will turn off but the fan will continue to run for approximately three minutes. If the humidity level changes during that timeframe, the compressor may come back on and the fan may stay on without turning off. I hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!

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.

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.
I hope this is more helpful! Thanks for checking with us again! Read Less

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1375 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This One is Fine. A couple of missed features I like. Upon a power failure, it comes back to life in the prior settings. The HD Associate and I discovered together that it has auto-resume on power failure. That ought to be on the box or listed in the feature set. Overall power draw seems less than the 5 year old LG that it replaced, probably because it is clean. It has a clean filter feature, but i haven't looked at the manual (LOL) for that. Its in a pump house, so a little noise isn't a problem, but on high, the blower rush is noticeable. You'l know when its NOT working for sure. At medium speed, one could watch TV OK. The compressor noise is equivalent to a mid size fridge, which of course it is. The hose connection has a door that I could do without, and the hose connection was tight to fit in. Be aware that only a thin hose washer could be used. Their Hose Kit might be more accommodating. Best part, it easily keeps the 350 SF pump house dry. August 9, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Worked for 15 months Problem is I cannot recommend any Energy Star appliance; none last 1/4 the time a comparable old unit will last. Eighteen months is about the limit of what dehumidifiers last, so compared to new units the GE is fair. We've had three quit on us... but our 40 year old Fedders is still removing 28 pints of air per day from our basement. Buy the cheapest unit you can find and get an extended warranty; when it quits, pay for the pro-rate, or whatever gimmick they use to try to get out of just giving you a replacement. Change to a different store if you are not satisfied. It is like 'lifetime' car brakes; you get one replacement. We have five Whirlpool 40 pint units that we bought used for $20 to $30. Only one quit, and it was 28 years old. We replaced it with another used Whirlpool 40 pint for $40. Those I recommend... unless they have an Energy Star sticker on them. August 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great, easy to set up. This dehumidifier works great, seems to put out less heat than units we've had previously. Easy to set up with a hose for continuous draining. Humidity in our basement in August went from 70% down to 50% in about 2 days, then to 45% and the air smells cleaner. If it continues to work this well for years, it will be a good investment. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great dehumidifier and meets my needs We desperately needed something to pull the moisture from our basement and garage, especially once we had to wait nearly 2 weeks to have our AC unit repaired during one of the most humid times of the year. Things were getting musty and the carpet was starting to feel moist. Within 24 hours of having the dehumidifier on, the musty smell was much less noticeable and the carpet felt dry again. We emptied out the water bucket numerous times in the beginning, but now we empty it out 2-3 times a day depending on how humid it is. The unit is also fairly quiet compared to dehumidifiers I have had in the past and Energy Star rated, which is a plus. I like how easy it is to operate and that it can easily be rolled around. August 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quieter than expected and working well Wanted a quiet easy to use easy to clean unit and this one meets and exceeds August 23, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hidden timer to self-destruct just after warranty ends? Seemed to work fine for a little over a year, then the condenser died and no more dehumidification, just a big expensive useless fan. To judge from reviews I've read at various websites, I'm not the only purchaser to have this device fail within weeks after the one-year warranty expiration. That leaves the durability of this product in serious doubt. If you have to pay $200 every year or two for a new one, that gets to be some pretty expensive dehumidification over the long haul. August 1, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ehh... Let me start by saying that in about 2 hours i had about a gallon of water that had already been collected fresh out if the box, so on that side it works great. However, it is brand new and it is supposed to have 3 fan settings. The high and low work great. The medium speed doesnt work at all, so we are exchanging it for another. Hopefully that is not a sign of whats to come. I dont think it should have this problem being brnad new, but we will give it another shot. Ill update later. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by large room dehumidifier Customer service provided some personal thoughts on settings. When unit was turned on it defaulted to the settings suggested. Very impressed with the packaging. Unit is too heavy to lift out of box, but once the strapping is cut, the sides and base of the carton separate. Lift the carton and "voilà" the dehumidifier is sitting there, ready to be moved into position. Excellent packaging. August 16, 2016
