Customer Questions & Answers

Would I be able to leave this unit unattended in continuous mode with a hose attached to it for draining?

I have a vacation home with a very damp basement. I would like to use this unit to to remove the humidity from the basement, but I would not be in the home for long periods of time.
Asked by: Joseph
Bought this unit at HomeDepot and left it running with a hose to direct the water into a drain, and it failed after about a year. The fan and condenser still run, but the unit does not remove water from the air.

Asked by: Billy

is it energy star rated

Asked by: alangski
I just bought the GE ADEL50LR at HD, and there's an EnergyStar logo on the box, and on the control panel. But, the last line on this HD web page's Specification section says "ENERGY STAR Certified: No"; and the EnergyStar web site shows that the only 50-pint GE EnergyStar Certified dehumidifier is model adeW50LW. Has adeL50LR lost its certification sometime since 2013??

50 pt. Dehumidifier is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1608.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dehumidifier. Just the best. Every improvement I've ever wanted in a dehumidifier has finally been included in one great product. From the hidden hose attachment to the auto-defrost this machine does everything and quietly too. It even puts a bit of warmth into the air. I don't have a really damp basement but I like to keep odors down and remove the chill that humidity causes. When my dehumidifier finally quit I bought this without knowing anything about it and was pleasantly surprised when I put it into service. It's a real good product and I recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Expected it to last longer I bought this model from Home Depot in spring of 2014 following a sump pump failure that made our basement extremely humid after we cleaned up some leaking water. Worked fine for about 1 1/2 years, although I will agree with others that it NEVER shut off, even when the desired humidity level was reached. (And no, it was not set in continuous mode.) Performance started to decline a couple of months ago. I could go a week between emptying bucket rather than the usual 1-2 days. Then it stopped drawing water completely a couple of weeks ago. Motor works fine, it seems to be running normally, but isn't. Need to get a new one and will not get a GE.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed in the Lifespan I've had this product for just a little over a year and it's no longer functioning properly. The fan now starts and stops periodically while the dehumidifier is turned on with no rhyme or reason. It's become an increasingly worse problem and now I'm searching for a replacement. I never used the product for more than a couple of hours each day. For what it's worth, it did a good job pulling moisture out of the air when it was functional but I'm shocked at the longevity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The farmhouse basement in Belle Plaine was flooded from the Arkansas river and after pumping out ... The farmhouse basement in Belle Plaine was flooded from the Arkansas river and after pumping out the water and using the wet-vac, it was time for this dehumidifier to do the rest - for about a week, each overnight, the 50 pint container was full. Now things have settled down to maintaining a 55% humidity and requires emptying every few days. It has done the job for us.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Worker - But not Quiet I was hoping this would be quiet or at least not a freight train, yes that is an exaggeration but it is LOUD. This device is a very hard worker. I have it set in the middle of three rooms and it DROPS the humidity quickly. But I'm afraid it is a bit loud to have it so close to a room that you "live" in i.e family room, bed room etc. I have only had the device for a month or so, so reliability is yet to be seen. It is also nice that it has a humidity gage on the device, it does seem to match up with the humidity gage on my normal thermostat. The "bucket" is very easy to pull out and has a handle to help dispose of the water (I dump it on my garden plants). I haven't used the delay feature, not sure why you would need that unless you want to start it after you fall asleep. I would suggest GE work on the sound level, and add a longer cord. The different speeds sound funny (even beyond the noise level). Hope that helps....
