Customer Question

i purchased a ge dehumidifer maybe five months ago. after i cleaned the filter, it stopped running like previously. actually, it doesn't run at all. i hope i only have to reset the machine. how do you reset a dehumidifier? there isn't a lot of info on how to do this
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: ADEL50LRL2 i purchased it this year. so, it is about four or five months old
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: i didn't know this would be a major project. i assume filters need to be cleaned regularly. there isn't a button to push?
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: i can't afford to pay someone to reset it every time the filter needs to be cleaned. i guess i will be doing it myself
