Kenmore dehumidifier, Model number 580.54501800 still getting 'bucket full' after replacing the switch. Now what?.
Replaced the switch with new switch (part number 6600A30003C). Still displays the same error (01) and the bucket full lite is on. The bucket is not full. I removed the bucket and pressed the switch several times as recommended and get the same result..."bucket full" The humidifier is only two years old. The bucket has been emptied and replaced less than a dozen times. I have a hose connected to the dehumidifier so I don't really need the bucket. How can I get the dehumidifier to work? Not sure I want to spend a lot of money on what seems to be a very poor appliance. Your help and suggestions are appreciated.

Victor, if the switch and the board have been replaced, check the switch manually. A good check is to press the lever manually and listen for a clicking sound. If you do not hear this sound and since the switch has been replaced, the most likely problem will be that the actuator is not making contact with the switch. If you do hear this sound, it would lead back to the board. Another check will be with the float. Make sure the float is not stuck. If these checks are ok, I recommend taking this unit to the nearest repair center to have a tech check it.
