I was running the Soleus Air dehumidifier Model # GL-DEH-70EIP-6 in my basement to lower the humidity level. About 6 months ago the pump stopped working, so I went down today to see if the water needed to be emptied from the unit, and something smelled "hot". When I removed the bucket from the unit, I could see that plastic behind the bucket had begun to melt. I'm glad I went down to check. I'm afraid the house might have caught fire if I hadn't.
