It is brand new and the bucket is installed correctly but with in a minute the bucket full light goes on and item shuts down. IS there a problem with the item or is there something you should do when u first use the dehumidifer
For anyone who has this common problem. The float is on a lever, it is supposed to move up as the tank fills activating a micro switch for a light or just a simple colored indicator. You can use a spray silicone on the axis of the float. Work the float and lever to make sure it is smooth motion. Don't use Vaseline or a heavy grease, because it will cause it to stick. Occaisonly the lever is rubbing on the side of the tank or the lever, rubs on the side of the unit or the tank. I have gently adjusted the lever away from the side of the tank, but be careful it is plastic and can break very easily. Sometimes you can just work the lever through the full range of motion and work it into a smooth movement.
