I have read a previous post of a gentleman trying to bypass the on/off switch on his dehumidifier. As I recall he was asked to provide additional information and the op has yet to respond. Well as luck would have it I am in need of the same information! I purchased the dehumidifier I am working with here in Costa Rica after an extensive search for a solid state model. The power goes off several times daily and of course the unit does not return to operation. I am attaching photos of the boards and only available drawings I can find. I am not at any means an electrical engineer but I can generally hold my own. Anyway I just really need to know what does the momentary switch prompt? I am thinking a contactor is involved to complete the circuit. With that said once the momentary is disengaged what is actually maintaining the request that the circuit stays closed. I have looked at the terminal where the full cut off switch is but for the life of me cannot figure this circuit out. If the full switch is made it breaks the circuit and the led's (power and full) stay illuminated however if you push the momentary again the unit and the led's turn off. I am so sorry for such a long post but I have to have this resolved by Friday evening. It seems to me that if the contactor that is promted to power up the unit is jumped all the other components will still work as intended. Again I am not a expert and I am obviously seeking help. Any and all will muchly appreciated. Ty in adavance!
