Never dreaming I could find a replacement, I went searching on the internet anyway and found the model which had been discontinued however the container and float were still available. It took two minutes to put the new float in and the reservoir container on the unit. It works great!!!

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.

The difficulty was getting the motor out of the unit. It is held in by a snap-fitted support piece that gets in the way. After several failed maneuvers, I removed the fan from the motor (a job that would be easier if my hands were half-sized) and then extract the motor. Then the fan had to be replaced and tightened on the new motor. However, now that the job is done, I'm happy with the end result. The new motor runs quietly, and the unit is back in action.
