The onboard humidity indicator reads 10% higher then the actual room humidity,measuring with an accurate humidity meter.
When the fan shuts off,the humidity sensor picks up moisture from inside the unit,and the unit restarts in approx. 1 to 2 minutes later.
When measured,the actual room humidty only rose 1 percent,but the unit thinks it rose 5%.
I believe the fan shutting off,and the location of the humidity sensor is causing this problem.
If this unit had a remote humidy sensor,similar to the thermostats on some mini split systems,it's operation would be perfected. The only other thing to do would be to constantly run the fan,or relocate the humidity sensor to outside the unit,so it won't be affected by moisture from the refrigeration coil or water bucket.
I use the hose connection to drain my unit,and it still short cycles.
I tried to talk to a technician at GE,but they only have customer service people,who you hope will pass on the info,to their engineering dept.
I hope this review doesn't sound too technical,but I work on heating and a/c equipment for a living.
Maybe a GE engineer will read this review and improve the design.
