i'd agree they are rubbish if it was only 20 years but the op said it lasted well over 20 years :p

If anything you buy these days lasts for 20 years I would be shocked.

Could be down to a poor level of servicing then

Tips for the next one

Don't set the humidistat higher than necessary
Clean the water container
Replace the filter
Inspect the cooling coils for frost or ice build-up
Don't short-cycle the cooling system

I recently moved from using a traditional compressor dehumidifier (the damp air is drawn over a refrigerated coil and condenses into water) to a dessicant type. They are much quicker at drawing the water out of the air, and seem to work a lot better in colder temperatures than the usual compressor ones. BUT, they use more electricity. Around 650 watts on high setting compared to 250 watts that my old one used. But it probably balances itself out over time as you need it on for less time if drying clothes, or just trying to bring the humidity down in the house. I now have this one:

Logik dessicant dehumidifier at currys for £140

It is a rebadged meaco model.

Here is the updated meaco model at amazon, for about £175:

meaco dd8l at amazon

The only real difference seems to be that it turns the fan off if the target relative humidity is reached and samples the air for 5 mins every half hour, rather than continuing to run it to sample the air (using 30w) as the old model (and logik version) does.
