HD55 is running continuously: panel says 58%, separate device is measuring 45%?

Back to List

Hi all,

I installed an HD55 (Energy Star) dehumidifier in my basement 5 days ago and it has been running continuously since then. The panel initially showed a humidity percentage of ~60% and has since dropped to 58%. However, two separate humidity measure devices say the basement is at 45% or 50%. Is the sensor in my unit broken and/or in need of calibration?


The dehumidifier is not damaged, and it is normal for the humidity sensor of the machine to deviate from other measuring equipment.
