  • Pocket handles - built-in handles that wont break help for transportation
  • Easy-roll hidden wheels - out-of-sight wheels roll easily for bucket emptying New DOE testing regulations have had an effect on pint sizes; these standards more accurately reflect realistic room conditions, as a result, it is especially important to select a dehumidifier based on the room conditions rather than the pint sizes

Description states for rooms up to 1500 sq ft. Would this include multiple rooms adding up to 1500 sq ft?

Asked by Mike February 28, 2021
3
Answers

Hi Mike! We appreciate your question. We found that dehumidifiers are designed to remove the moisture from a single room. In a situation where you have multiple rooms, you have nothing to circulate the air from room to room to allow that humid air to reach the dehumidifier. If there are large openings from one room to another you may get some dehumidification. The primary space where the unit is located will be dehumidified the best. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at our contact page. Stay safe! Emily@GEA

It will easily pump over 6 feet in elevation. I recall it is rated for more than twice that.

How many amps does this unit use?

Asked by gfab January 25, 2021
2
Answers

Hi gfab - Thanks for reaching out to us about this dehumidifier! We are happy to offer you some guidance in this question. The exact number of amps that an individual dehumidifier draws is located on the rating plate. If you cannot check the rating plate, you can use the minimum amp breaker or fuse size recommended for this appliance as a guide. We would recommend using a 15 amp, properly grounded 3-prong 115-volt outlet, to account for the startup draw. We hope that this helps! -Eliza@GEA

Worked for only three days
I purchased this because I moved to the Seattle area and a contractor recommended a dehumidifier to reduce moisture downstairs. Previously, I've appreciated GE products and always bought them through Home Depot; however, this one has proved to be a disaster. It worked for approximately three days and then the display malfunctioned, showing partial numbers that didn't change when the buttons were pressed. Also, except for the power button, the other functions were no longer available. When the fan dramatically increased speed and then slowed, I gave up and contacted GE. On October 8th, I spoke to two agents, and the second one promised that a new dehumidifier would be sent to my house within 5-7 business days followed by a box to return the original. Neither arrived. I've been on long holds with GE since to no avail. The recording advocates choosing the call-back option, but no one calls back. I'm on hold, probably sixth time, to find out where to return it. If I receive no satisfaction, I'll contact my Credit Card company to dispute the charges. This is a real shame, as they used to be a solid American appliance company.

Works a Promised
Bought to replace DeLonghi that stopped pulling water after 3-4 years. Appears to be a consistent theme no matter the brand. Bought extended warranty for 45 from HD. Anyway - basement odor gone in one day. Humidity level now at 50 percent. Drain pump routed full length to washing machine drain - all good so far. One point though —- The unit does not immediately shut down when the bucket is removed as described in the instruction manual. When removed the compressor shuts down and the fan will continue for 3 minutes or so. Appears to normal operating procedure. Found issue in a 2013 post re a Kenmore. Finally someone pointed this out and it applies here too. After 7 years you’d think they would revise instructions (kenmore, GE I believe made by same company). Anyway pump works and that’s critical for me. I recommend the product.

Works great. Really does the job keeping humidity in check in our bathroom. Pump works great too, no more emptying the bucket twice a day. Just need to remember to properly clean the bucket a couple times a month. I ran the water discharge line into the toilet bowl, so when the seat is down you don't even know it's there. One tip if you do this, secure the line to keep the force of the water discharge from working the line out of place. I used a zip tie to secure the line to the toilets water inlet hose, but will probably make a plastic clamp from a milk jug to fasten it to one of the toilet tank bolts one of these days. The dehumidifier discharge line is thin but made from a stiff material so it can't make sharp 90 degree bends, but it is flexible enough you can route it as needed to get to your drain, and the hose that comes with it is generous in length.

Our old dehumidifier was over 20 years old. It just quick working in the middle of the spring thaw and we had water pooling in our basement. The new GE dehumidifier had the water dried up in 2 days. It's quiet and easy to operate.
