I Purchased A 70 Pint Danby Dehumidifier Yesterday. I Brought it home at noon yesterday, I thought I'd Better check the tank Last night, the tank was completely full at 9 P.M. This morning I checked the tank again. This Time the tank was full and had shut down at 6:30 A.M. I just checked it again at 2:00 P.M. Full Again. Our Old Dehumidifier would take out a half tank about once a week. So far I Love The New Danby. It's Quiet in the Basement, And I'm running the fan on high. Works Great !!
powerful and neat

I purchased this to bring down the humidity in my large bathroom in Florida. The air conditioning system wouldn't clear the steam after our family showers, and we shower a lot with athletes in the house! The unit is very easy to set and operate. It's fairly compact and is unobtrusive in a corner of my cabinet area. It pulls a ton of water from the room and closets, I have to empty the full container twcie a week. It does generate heat as you lower the humidity setting, the temp on the fan goes up. This is not good in FL where we run the A/C year round, but I found that leaving the dehumidifying function at 50% keeps the airflow at around 78F, then as the machine pulls the humdity, the temp cools down. I do wish they made a unit for tropical climates, as this is geared towards damp basements, but I needed a powerful unit for our giant bathroom with 2 closets off it--whoever builds a house with closet doors opening into a giant bathroom is an idiot. The humidity would get in our clothing and we needed a powerful and reasonably priced solution. This is an excellent machine, I only give it 4 stars because it does generate some heated air as it dehumidifies, and we didn't want that feature, but it's tolerable.

I build guitars as a hobby in Florida . This requires a stable , dry environment, so because of Florida's high humidity, a dehumidifier must be used. This Danby is the best i have ever had, and i have probably gone through at least a half dozen in the last 10 years. I literally have to back it down at times , or it will get the building room too dry!
Customer Q & A
Q1: Have a Danby 70 pint unit for 4 years. For some reason this year the unit will not drain out of attached hose and instead fills the bucket. How can I get it to drain using hose again? Thanks
A: I'm not exactly sure why things would change now unless there was some type of blockage. The model you have was one, that for a time in their production run, Danby found a problem with the direct drain option. Typically though, this issue arose quickly when you began using the machine with the direct drain option. The problem was the two holes/ports where water drips into the bucket. With the hose attached, there was a problem with them not working the way they should. Over the course of late 2009 and even with some holdovers into early 2010, we found a way to fix it, simply by using a tiny rubber stopper. They are only a few cents each and can be found at any local hardware store. After the 2009 production run, Danby did correct the problem, though for you, the time range you're suggesting might mean you have one of those units. I would pull the bucket, and take a look at the two small holes where water drains into the bucket. Pick up a rubber stopper that will fit and insert it into the secondary port if you're facing the machine, the opening on the right. Once you've done this, put the bucket back in and try it. That should fix it, provided there's nothing blocking the second port or drain hose. If you're still having problems, try contacting Danby directly and see if they have any suggestions. Hope that helps!
Q2: When will these be in stock again
A: This particular model? Never. Danby's completed phased this specific model out, and we have exhausted what we had in stock. After three years, they finally decided to give this line a facelift and introduce a new model. As a note, the DDR70A1GP is an identical model with two differences. First, it's newer different model no, and second, it has a different faceplate. So the appearance from the front is different, but what's actually inside the shell is identical to the older DDR7009REE.
Q3: The danby dehumidifier stays at 45 and it seems to not be pulling the moisture out of the air but it is constantly running.
A: If your set point is 45%, you may have reached it. If that is the case, the fan will continue to run and cycle air through while the condensor will not kick on unles the humidity raises above the set point.
If your overall humidity has leveled out, say b/c of the seasonal change or a correction in whatever was originally causes the excess humidity, you may consider turning the unit completely off then checking the humidity after a day or so by turning the Danby back on.
Hope that helps!
Danby dehumidifiers have long been the leader in home dehumidification,
and Consumer Reports have rated Danby as a Best Buy for large
capacity dehumidifiers. This year Danby continues this award
winning design with the Premiere line of dehumidifiers. These models differ in capacity and square footage serviced,
but each offers efficient water and moisture removal at a
reasonable price. In keeping with prior Danby models, the DDR7009REE
dehumidifier is one of the best on the market for home dehumidification.
What I liked about the Danby DDR7009REE Dehumidifiers
Quite simply, the Danby 70 pint removes enormous amounts of water from
the air. Although we tested this dehumidifier during the hot and humid
months of summer, we were surprised when we found ourselves emptying
the water reservoir several times throughout the day. In
total, the DDR7009REE dehumidifier removed nearly 5 1/2 gallons of water
just during an 8 hour test period. Granted, we realize that the conditions in your
home are not as extreme as those under which we tested, but the sheer
volume of moisture collected was the most impressive feature
of these models. Even though this Danby is rated to remove 70 PPD (pints per day), our
tests show that this model can exceed this under extreme conditions.
The ease of use was also a decided advantage. All of the Danby
Premiere models provide users with full electronic controls, programmable humidity settings,
a timer and a remote. When compared to a separate humidity gauge, the
humidity readings on the Danby showed some deviation but good compared to the humidistats built into other home dehumidifiers. Auto defrost
and restart functions allow the unit to defrost itself when the coils freeze and restart after a power outage.
Despite running non-stop during our testing periods, the Danby
models are all quiet for their size. Regardless of fan setting, they
produced less noise than comparable models. Additionally, all of the
Danby dehumidifiers we sell are Energy Star compliant and use less electricity
than most of their competitors. This combined with a non-ozone
depleting refrigerant makes the Danby dehumidifiers some of the best
for the environment and your wallet.
All models also offer a direct drain line to save the aggravation of
having to manually empty the tank, and the inclusion of 6.5 ft. of drain hose is a plus. This would be particularly useful
if you were using it in a basement or somewhere near your HVAC drain
line where you could effectively tie the dehumidifier line into the
existing drain line. Regardless of whether you use it in your
basement or living room, the drain line saves mess and hassle.
What I did not like about the Danby DDR7009REE Dehumidifiers
Across the web you will find a lot of information showing these Danby models effective for extremely large areas. Literature
from Danby rates the Danby 70 as effective for up to 4200 sq. ft. However our tests have found this to be likely less than what Danby
advertises. Across our
site we have adjusted Danby coverage area by taking into account our product testing results and each units individual CFM
(cubic feet per minute - fan speed). Though the Danby 70 pint has a CFM of 324, to ensure adequate water removal of your space we recommend
this model for areas around 1000 sq. ft. or less. Depending on your specific conditions, you can likely cover more area, but we would rather
err on conservative rather than have you purchase a unit then not have it meet your expectations.
There is little doubt these are heavy. On low pile carpet and hard
surfaces the casters save you a good deal of trouble when moving
them, but the 70 pint dehumidifier is certainly not an appliance you want to be moving
Overall, the Danby Premiere DDR7009REE is the best room dehumidifier on the
market for larger areas. Our testing of the Danby Premiere models
gave us excellent results with few drawbacks. The performance of the
Danby dehumidifiers is what makes them the best available while the
ease of use, convenient features and reliability are what keeps
pushing Danby to the front of the line when it comes to home dehumidification.
The Ebac CD35 has a no nonsense durable design, and is very quiet, free of rattles. Achoo Allergy expedited the order and we received the unit in a very timely manner. I would recommend this unit for anyone needing a smaller capacity, well built dehumidifier. More Testimonials
