My dehumidifier is hooked up to its internal pump. I leave

Customer Question

My dehumidifier is hooked up to its internal pump. I leave it running 24/7. I check it every 2or3 weeks. It is now leaving water all around it on the floor, but the bucket doesn't fill and their is no evidence that the pump is pumping water to my shower stall as I desired. Any advice for me or do I have to bring it in for service? By the way, the room temp is at least 75 degrees. Thanks.

Answer:

The internal pump has likely failed which happens on most of these units since they use a very cheap pump. The pump is not easy to change out either so you may have to take it in for service or see if they will cover it under warranty for you from Sears.
