I used to leave an old analog model running in my basement
while I was away for weeks at a time. When I bought this new
Haier, I forgot about the "permanent off" problem. As we have
been having frequent T-storms, it is pretty useless.
Assuming there is no easy fix for this (or is there?) who still
makes an analog model?
Help much appreciated!
Perhaps you could buy a UPS (uninterrupible power supply) that would keep
the unit running for brief periods during a power glitch.
Google "uninterruptible power supplies"
here is a good "basic explanation" link:
Your challenge will be to try to estimate how long the power is off at a
time.......... 5 seconds or 4 hours ?? and find a UPS with a high
enough rating to power the dehumidifier long enough to prevent the digital
control from resetting to zero (or off). A very small UPS designed for a
computer might not do the job.
Hope this helps !!
Thanks. I will look into the IPS, but it will have to be able
to handle 8 amps! Probably cheaper to start all over (but
with what.) Will have to look at the restart issue very
carefully with the next unit.
