                I have had this unit 15 months and it is acting up already. The Humidity setting is stuck on 50% and I have tried everything to reset the unit to no avail.
                Response from GE_AppliancesDec 7, 2023
                Hello- We appreciate you taking the time to share your review. We would like to help! Ideal in-home humidity levels should hover around 45%. Anything under 30% is too dry, and over 50% is too high. We recommend checking to make sure that all windows and doors are closed. Make sure the unit has proper air flow and that no curtains, blinds, or furniture is blocking the front or back of the dehumidifier. If used in a laundry area, install the dehumidifier away from the moisture laden air generated by the dryer. We hope this is helpful. If you have any other questions, please reach out to us directly. We are happy to help!
                  Solid dehumidifier that pulls a lot of excess mois
                  Solid dehumidifier that pulls a lot of excess moisture out of the air. Following a leak in the house, it has consistently pulled multiple gallons of water out of the air reduced the in-home humidity from 60% down to a more comfortable 40%. It would have been good to get one with IFTT/Apple HomeKit integration, but that didn't seem available, however I put mine on a wifi plug and am able to turn it on/off remotely as required.

                    Easy to set up, great features, and works great!
                    I installed two of these dehumidifiers, one for each basement within my duplex. The product is sleek looking and very easy to set up. I'm using the built-in pump system and am running the pump to my basement sink. I did have to buy longer tubing for the pump, but that was easy to find. The automatic pumping system works well and the product, in general, works very well to maintain reasonable humidity and prevent moisture buildup in the basements.

                      Guess what mine quit too
                      As is the case with all the other reviewers on here that have owned this unit for more than a couple days. Mine too has ceased to continue with its life. It has give. Up the will to remove the damp musty air in our home. Unfortunate because it was a nice unit up to that point. Not sure if it was the spiders in the basement urging it to end its existence or perhaps all the other higher end name brand appliances teasing it at night. Either way it will have its very own Viking funeral very soon.

                        Nice and quiet while everyone on high fan speed! I have had it on for hours and can barely hear it.
                          Very Happy!
                          So far my GE dehumidifier is working fine. I’m surprised how much moisture is in the air. It really works.

                              50 Pint Dehumidifier stopped working.
                              Purchased the 50 pint GE dehumidifier with built in pump 9-27-21 and ran it a month or so until we turned the heat on. It worked beautifully. We ran it during the summer of 2022 and it worked fine. It is now the summer of 2023 and it is not working. We have followed all the trouble shooting directions to no avail. So basically we got one summer’s use out of it. So very disappointed in this product. It looks brand new but won’t work.

                                Crapped out just after 1 year warranty expired
                                Not happy the new unit I purchased just suddenly stopped worked days after the warranty expired. Save your money and buy another brand instead of GE.

                                  Broken- not sure since when, maybe from the beginning
                                  We bought it in Nov 2022. Was running in the unfinished basement so wasn't checking on it convinced everything is fine. Noticed crazy electricity bills - now is March 2023 , and finally found out that that humidifier never shuts off, even after reaching desired humidity and blows ice cold air. I shut it off and my electricity usage went down dramatically. What a crap!

                                  Hey there - we're sorry to hear that your dehumidifier has not met your expectations. The unit has a "Nonstop" option which allows the dehumidifier to operate continuously at its maximum dehumidification settings if attached to a hose to drain or until the bucket is full. We recommend setting a desired humidity level to stop the unit from running nonstop, and you can learn more about this by referring to page 4 of the owner's manual here: https://images.thdstatic.com/catalog/pdfImages/45/45f8c867-f03d-4ea6-9c69-1f1c3ebdfbc0.pdf -- Please let us know if there are other questions or concerns we can assist you with. Take care. - Pablo@GEA GE_Appliances
