Danby DDR5009REE Dehumidifier is JUNK
What a piece of garbage!The first one died (loss of all freon) at 20 months, just under warranty, and after jumping through hoops (having the failure verified at a service facility 30 miles away, and paying for that evalutation)the retailer replaced it with the same model).
Now, the second unit has failed, same symptom, the compressor runs but does not cool.It's just out of warranty, at 27 months (two year warranty)Danby just says "sorry!" Neither of these units were operated during the winter months, so the actual "run-time" was much less than the full year, so...AVOID this brand!!!
Monetary Loss: $169.
