Dehumidifier Setting

drbmw90September 11, 2009

I just purchased the Danby Premiere dehumidifier. Not a lot of instruction on the settings. I need the highest setting to pull out as much water as possible. I turned it on to the factory settings and it didn't pick up any water all night. Please let me know if you have any ideas. Thank you.

I think mold etc grows at around 65%+ i put mine on 50% and it pulls alot of water out of the air. Maybe 50% is too low? but you could try it and see.
