    Hi,

    Does anyone know if there is a dehumidifier, instead of using
    a humidistat setting, allows you to set the time on and the time off?

    Example: Set the dehumidifier to run for a half hour, then be off
    for an hour. This cycle repeats over and over.

    Almost all new dehumidifiers have electronic controls.

    My mechanical control dehumidifier recently "died". I used an external
    controller I made that employs a binary counter. The dehumidifier, which was
    set to "Max", was plugged into this external device. When the power was off,
    in effect it is the same as "unplugging" the dehumidifier. I used this
    system for years and it worked GREAT. Note: I use a humidity gauge.

    PROBLEM:

    With electronic control dehumidifiers, "unplugging" (in effect) the
    dehumidifier for a half hour or more, most likely will cause it to loose the
    settings.
    Thanks in advance, Brad
