Will this unit turn off once it reaches it humidity level and will it turn back on if the level goes higher?

Asked by Dave June 2, 2020
5
Answers

It does and it also operates in modes where it kind of decompresses as well you can read about that in the manual which homedepot allows you to download under the product description. So if you set a Target humidity percentage let's say 40% or 45 once it hits that threshold the machine will just circulate air and then at time shut off.

Asked by Polopeka August 4, 2020

Answers

Hi Polopeka - Thanks for considering GE! Considering the size of the area, it may be best to use two devices. If the area is not too humid, you may want to try one device first and see how the comfort level is within the condo. Then, use a second device, if needed. These are designed for dehumidifying a room, basement, living room, bedroom, etc. vs an entire home. Also, take a look at the following link- DEHUMIDIFIERS - IDEAL OPERATING CONDITIONS: https://products.geappliances.com/appliance/gea-support-search-content?contentId=54 - If you have any additional questions, do not hesitate to ask, we are also happy to help at GEAppliances.com!

DOES THE PUMP EMPTY THE BUCKET AUTOMATICALLY WHEN IT IS FULL OR MUST IT BE DONE MANUALLY? ALSO H...

Asked by RAY June 4, 2020

Answers

So here are the methods you can use to drain from this unit. The first is the bucket. The bucket will fill up in the machine will stop when a float triggers that. And you need to manually empty the bucket. If you pull the pin in the rear and attach the flex tubing and push the pump button on the top of the unit to activate the pump some water will still be in the bucket, but the flex tube will do it all but you should check the bucket after two weeks just to get an idea. The last method I think is the best and that is attaching a threaded garden hose to the side of the unit. This guarantees that the bucket will never fill up at all. I have mine set up that way to drip into the sump. The last two methods let you drain

Is there a unit this size that doesn’t throw out as much heat?

Asked by Tina September 8, 2020
3
Answers

Hello Tina - Thank you for reaching out about your dehumidifier. We hope it has worked well for you over the last year. Model APER50LZ is our newest unit. However, dehumidifiers use a compressor to function properly which will generate some heat. If the unit is installed correctly to exhaust outside, the heat should not be an issue. Feel free to reach out with any more questions as we are always happy to help. - JB

No not at all, it's one of three ways to do this. For pump, pull the plug out and install the provided hose and press 'pump' on the display. If not then the hose connect is done via a side access door, otherwise if that is not connected, it will go into the bucket

A workhorse!!!
Customer review from geappliances.com logo
We had discovered a major water issue in our crawl space. Our first thought was to get a dehumidifier down there and start removing water. Any rental unit was going to be too big to get into the confined space where the water issue was; also we were going to need to run the unit for days and that was going to cost! We did a little research and figured this GE unit would do the job; most important it had a pump to empty the tank to "daylight". It took a bit of effort to get this 44 lb beastie into the crawl space and into the wet area but we got it in there, got it running and over the course of several days pumped many gallons of water out of the area. At the same time we engaged the services of a company specializing in mitigation and restoration who started the fix in the rooms above with their commercial-grade equipment. This GE de-humidifier did what we needed it to do and we are more than happy to recommend it. It should be noted that the 15 foot drain line supplied with the unit was not long enough to take the water out of the crawl space. We added an additional 20 foot, the total line running horizontally out of the crawl space, which worked just fine.

Excellent at removing humidity in our finished downstairs. Pump works as desired. Relatively quiet when fan is blowing. My only concern is how low this unit will last. I had a GE 70 pt. (same model of earlier year, rating category was changed). It lasted just beyond the 1 year warranty (16 months) and then would not remove humidity. Much quieter than a more expensive Honeywell unit purchased elsewhere that I returned because the Honeywell drain pump did not work. Keeps humidity at desired setting 40%. I opted for the extended warranty.

This thing is probably over-kill for my apartment in New York, but it works great. Have been running it almost constantly 24/7 (it will auto shut off once it hits a set humidity rate and turn back on when it detects the humidity is above the threshold again) for the last 2 weeks. As far as de-humidifiers go, it's relatively quiet on the lowest setting. The wheels on the bottom are a nice touch to move it around easily and it has a reasonably long power cord (which I know some don't have). Very happy with this purchase!

13 Months Later and Will Not Turn ON
Quality :

Product ran well for 13 month, purchased March 2019, and it stopped running. I have taken good care of the product cleaning bucket, filter, and line every 3 months and is in a finished basement with moderate humidity. Was running well but will not run for more than 10 minutes and the bucket is dry. Tried adjusting humidity setting and even tried the NS non-stop feature. The lights are on and no warning codes manual refers to. So if you are ok with a disposable dehumidifier at the cost $23.07/mo for 13 months this is your unit. Very frustrating to see how far GE has fallen.

Better than the Frigidaire WiFi model, still works great after a year
Quality :

Value :

I bought the Frigidaire model FGAC7044U1 with WiFi controls first, and then later purchased this GE model at Home Depot. I still own both. I much prefer this GE model, despite its lack of WiFi. Its MUCH more quiet, as its fully incased and brings in air from side vents. The Frigidaire model has a full front open vent, so the noise and rattles blast out into the room. This GE model sounds like a normal fan, like a low hum versus the high pitch of the Frigidaire. I find that both work equally well in removing humidity. The built-in pump is a HUGE benefit. If this is your first dehumidifier, don't consider one without a built-in pump. Changing out a bucket 2-3 times a day gets old fast. MY ONLY BIG COMPLAINT: If power is cut off, unit does not turn back on with power restored. This means I can't use a simple WiFi outlet to control on/off remotely, like I do with other appliances like my Austin Air purifiers. If GE is reading this, please consider providing an update or work around for machine to turn back on with power from outlet. This would eliminate the WiFi advantage of the Frigidaire at no cost to you. Thanks
