The problem with the dehumidifier is concerning. I did some research but was not able to find a solution. Your expert will be able to help answer your question. It may take two business days for your expert to reply. I do hope that everything works out.

Thank you for your question.  I can certainly understand the frustration with the repeat situation and this type humidifier.  Without the model number I can only offer general advice.  I did find that another expert had researched a similar issue and found reports that during shipping, the roller in the bucket gets out of position so it will give you a false reading until it is put back, and the flow lever will push on the button for the system. The automatic shut off switch should activate when the bucket is removed, preventing water from flowing.  If this has malfunctioned on three humidifiers of the same make and model, I recommend taking it back for a different dehumidifier. If further research or help is needed, please reply with the model number.  Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for the model number. I have reviewed all the material for this model and checked for manufacturer information on this malfunction. This may be a manufacturing defect that has not been documented yet, but I did not find any at this time. We reply directly to questions on this website. We are not set up for calls.There are two options that I see at this point. First, is to utilize the warranty coverage and have the dehumidifier serviced. That will also help to document the issue. You can use the Sears Home Service link below to schedule service. The second option I have already mentioned. Exchange this model for a different type dehumidifier. The possible issue I mentioned above did not apply to this model. I am sorry we could not be more help. I do recommend warranty service.

I had the same issue as Dave. I returned two model 52701's because they failed to turn off as indicated in the manual after having their buckets removed. Kudos to the store manager who went out of his way and tried to resolve the issue by trying two display models and guess what - they exhibited the same issues. So either there is a problem affecting the whole dehumidifier line or there was some manufacturing change made which was not disclosed to Sears and failed to be entered in the manual. As these were new units I have no desire to "try" to fix the unit under warranty as suggested above. I tried being a good consumer and customer by contacting technical support to resolve the issue only to become as frustrated as Dave. So I had to take the advice of a Sears technical support account manager who told me to return the unit and purchase another dehumidifier. So I did. I purchased a competitor's model highly recommended by Consumer Reports. This never would have happened at my father's Sears.
