I have a Sears dehumidifier like this one...
It's about 3 years old.
It's not running right now, and I'm trying to determine if there is
something wrong with it, or if it is because the humidity is low and it
is designed to not run based on the humidity setting. It has a
humidity control on it that is set on 40%. We live in SW Indiana, so
it's not too humid now. However, the basement is damp right now and
the dehumidifer isn't kicking on. I'll probably wait until Spring to
see if it will come on and replace it then if it is broken. However, I
was wondering if anyone has advice on something to check inside the
dehumifier to see if any of the components need to be replaced.
