Removed the front cover and then the humidistat from the bracket. Two push on wire connectors and then reversed. Very straightforward and excellent part matching. Given the prices for new dehumidifiers it was great to breathe life back into this unit which does its job well. Thanks for the easy to use web site and fast fast service!

The float has two prongs that fit two snap fasteners on the reservoir tank. I just pressed the float prongs into the snap fasterners and inserted the reservoir tank into the dehumidifier. Turned the switch and pressto! We are in business.

First I pulled the top/side cover off. Disconnected the terminals from the old unit, unscrewed the old unit, and put the terminals on the new unit. Then I put the side/top cover back on, screwed the new humidistat unit into the front cover and then popped and screwed the front cover back in place. Customer service was excellent and order was received promptly as promised. Highly recommend Parts Select!

First I removed the two control knobs and the two screws that hold the front cover in place and then the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. Then I reconnected the new humidistat and put everything back together. Works just fine, now.
