Dehumidifier was in regular use in the basement, set at a humidity level and allowed to turn on and regulate as needed. Last month I smelled a burning plastic/rubber smell and traced it to the dehumidifier which was smoking slightly and smelling badly. It was unplugged, and I looked for recall or safety information.
