Dehumidifies Well, But a Bit Noisy

It dehumidifies well, is easy use, is easy to empty, and is easy to move around. I got this for a large (1000sqft), finished, and just slightly damp basement, and it is serving that purpose well.

At first, I emptied the bucket twice a day. After about a week of that, I only need to do it once a week or so. It's cold and the heat is on, so that probably helps too. (Also - I have it set at 50% humidity, and the basement wasn't very damp in the first place.)

The biggest issue with this is the fan noise. When it's running, it's pretty loud. It's a little quieter on the 'low' fan speed versus the 'high', but not as much as I was expecting. 'Low' is still too loud.

The other annoying issue is the tendency for the unit to start and stop. It will detect the humidity is getting too high and start up, then shut back off after about 10 minutes. A few minutes later, it will do it again. I'd much prefer it just run for longer to get the level lower than necessary, then shut off for longer.

Because of the noise issue, sometimes I'll turn it off when I'm in the room. (Easy to do - just push the power button. Push it again to turn it back on with the last settings. Simple.)

The manual says to keep it 16-18+ inches away from a wall, if that matters to you. It's on wheels, so it's pretty easy to move around.

The bucket is very easy to empty. It even has a handle to carry it with. It seems well designed, and I have zero problems with the way it works.

The unit is easy to operate. The controls are simple and easy to understand. No problems there.

The manual says to clean the air filter every 250 hours that the fan runs. Keep that in mind if you're going to run it continuously - that's every 10 days. You need to keep the filter clean to keep the coils clean. There's an indicator light to remind you.

All in all, I'm pretty pleased. If it were quieter and didn't start and stop, I think it'd be perfect. I researched other dehumidifiers, and they all have similar noise issues. Given that, the GE brand (who knows - it may still mean something), and the ease of use of this unit, I have no regrets.

It pulls out moisture, even in a chilly room. I like the user interface. It's not a quiet unit, but the noise is only from the fan: no banging or rattling. I have doubts about the accuracy of the humidity display, and a short time after the unit turns off (due to reaching setpoint) it turns back on. I don't believe the room humidity increased by 5 or 10% in two minutes. Still, it does take the moisture out.

Beach humidity

By 

from lake park, fl

Comments about GE 50 Pint Light Cool Gray Dehumidifier:

Just moved into an older house in Florida, 3 miles from the beach. This model was recommended by a neighbor and was told to use it whenever the house was shut to prevent mold and mildew. Sure enough, leaving it on with the windows shut, during the day or when we have the a/c on, draws a fair amount of water. I'd hate to think about that mold in our house and the effects on our health.

I had a different one from another manufacturer and it quit after about a year. I thought I would give G E a try since I have all GE profile appliances in my kitchen and I love them. So I am happy with this one
