So how do you know if there has been a recall issued for your dehumidifier ? You may want to start by looking on the manufacturers home page. Many dehumidifiers are recalled, for various reasons. The underlying reason in most cases, is that the dehumidifier is poorly constructed, and never meant to be subjected to the harsh, humid environments that most basements and crawl spaces present. Most dehumidifiers simply cannot keep up with the demand. They work at 100% of capacity most of the time, and they freeze up, and expire prematurely.
This is proven, by the fact that many people, like yourself, are searching for recall information on their dehumidifier. With the demand placed on many dehumidifiers being so high, this also creates much higher electric costs for the machine to run. It just doesn't make sense to purchase a cheap unit, when it won't operate correctly, freezes up, and sucks more electric for it to run. Theres no wonder why so many dehumidifiers are recalled.
You could keep spending the $200 every year with store bought dehumidifiers that go bad, or you could purchase a dehumidifier that is rugged, efficient, and made to handle the humid conditions in your home. Don't keep wasting your money on these mass produced, box store dehumidifiers. I know they are cheap, but remember the main reason you purchase a dehumidifier is that you actually want to control the humidity in your basement or crawl space. This is where many dehumidifiers fall short of the goal.
