I found my basement full of a strong electrical burning smell that was coming from my Soleus Air DP1-70-03 dehumidifier. I felt lucky that I caught it before it caught on fire. The unit is 2 years old.

I checked on http://www.cpsc.gov/ for a recall for this unit but I could not find one.

I contacted the manufacturer and they want me to send them the unit at my shipping expense. I'm already out $220 on this thing and I'm not going to invest more into it. I am posting this here in case other people have had a similar issue and there is a true fire risk with these units. Thank you.
