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. 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

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1407 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Short life span I bought one last year (2015) in July and it ran just fine, did a good job of removing water from a 1000 sq. ft. finished basement. This year it started out working well but then just quit taking out any water one month after the warranty expired. Hmmmm? I only ran the thing for about 4 months total. Called GE to complain and they are going to give me a coupon for the amount of purchase, but I have to buy another GE product. Really don't want another GE unit, but that is my only option. August 30, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Stopped working 6 days after the warranty expired While it was working, it was great. The reservoir was a little small, but would last a couple of days. However, I noticed about 2 weeks ago that it seemed like it was compressing every time I went into the basement, and if finally dawned on me that either the compressor was dead or the refrigerant was gone. When I looked up my order receipt I saw that it was now 6 days past the 1 year limited warranty. I'll be buying the cheapest replacement I can find and buying an extended warranty for the next one. August 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Much needed dehumidifier The dehumidifier is doing a good job. Within one to two days it had gotten rid of a lot of humidity in our basement. The damp smell was also gone. The only thing I wish it had was an automatic shut off. When the tank is full, the fan keeps running. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 50 pint dehumidifier review. This dehumidifier is much quiter and removes more moisture than our previous 9 yr. old model. It is a good value also. August 30, 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice affordable product This product was easy to set up and operate. It was for my Senior Citizen Mother and she has had no difficulty with it. She is very pleased with the product August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So effective! I bought this yesterday to help dry out our flooded basement. Within several hours I had to empty the water chamber! I couldn't believe that this machine could pull out so much moisture from the air in such a short time- incredible! Very sleek look, easy to operate and great features! It's very easy to move around the room and removing the water basin is so simple. I am so happy with my purchase! August 30, 2016
