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

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1307 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good... I got 2 of these - 1 for the unfinished side of the basement, which gets quite humid, and 1 for the finished side (less humid, but it's where the washing machine is). So far, pleased with how they work. No matter what machine I have in the unfinished side, it works hard, and I have at least a bucket a day, sometimes morning and evening depending on how much rain we've had. I hope these work for more than the year or two many reviewers have stated. That is a sad trend in many home appliances. Price was good, and did the order online, pick up in store thing. That went smoothly. July 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not working after 1 year. 1st year it worked fine. Used both the bucket and the drain hose, no problems. Second humid season and the machine runs, but will not collect any water. I tried different locations, with and without the drain hose but it simply will not collect any water. I contacted GE and they told me to try the trouble shooting tips in the manual, nothing helped. My purchase was just over a year old so the warranty was no longer valid. Trying a different brand for my replacement unit. For the cost it should last longer than 1 season. July 6, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Declining Performance This unit was purchased for a finished basement, replacing one which had been recalled. It worked to maintain humidity at an acceptable level in the summer, but ran more often than I expected. Performance gradually declined, and it maintained only 50-55% humidity in our space even when running continuously. After a little over two years, it began icing over - apparently the automatic defrost feature stopped working. Although it was set up to drain through a garden hose, water began to collect in the bucket as it condensed on cold surfaces within the unit. This was the first clue that it was icing over - initially, the ice buildup was not apparent from an outside inspection. I replaced this dehumidifier with a competitor's product which accomplished far better dehumidification within a matter of hours. July 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do Not Buy this Unit. Fan never shuts off I can't believe this product is Energy Star rated, because the fan NEVER shuts off. Others report the same problem. Seems like a design flaw. Wastes Energy... Very disappointed in this GE product. Needed a replacement unit quick. This was the ONLY model my Home Depot sold, so I had no choice. Try Lowes instead. July 19, 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 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 Great purchase The dehumidifier was a great purchase. The dehumidifier pulls so much moisture out of our basement. No more musty smell when we go down there. So happy we bought this. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GE Dehumidifier This product does a great job on reducing the humidity. I'm very glad that I purchased this brand. The dehumidifier runs quietly. Glad I purchased it. July 19, 2016
