Please confirm that the unit is not in "Continuous" or "Comfort" modes. Continuous mode will run the unit constantly. Comfort mode will automatically set the humidity to 50%. For newer Most Efficient Energy Star units, there is a "+" and "-" button under the Comfort mode. Using these buttons will automatically quit the Comfort mode and allow you to set the humidity.
The readout on the unit is the Humidity the unit is set to, not the temperature. Humidity is measure by relative concentration of water vapor in the air. The larger the number, the more damp the air will be. The typical comfortal humidity setting is 50% humidity.
The unit will accept a standard size drain hose. Follow the instructions in your manual for attaching the hose to unit. When guiding the hose to your drain point, your hose should never be higher than your drain point on the unit. The unit uses gravity to feed the water down the hose.
For the units that do have pumps, there will be a small clear hose that comes with your unit. Attach the hose to a small drain connector near the bottom of your unit. Remove the bucket from the unit and check that the drain pump filter is still attached. This is normally a long tube with a spherical filter at the end. If this is not attached, the pump will not work properly.
