        We ordered a Soleus Air CFM-40E dehumidifier on line, and it arrived exactly on the date it was promised. It arrived in good condition, and we immediately put it to use in our basement. First of all, we were impressed with the appearance of the unit and simplicity of operation. It is smaller in size than any other dehumidifier we have ever had but does a better more efficient job of removing excess humidity. The handle on top is a nice feature which makes it easy to move the dehumidifier around to different areas of the room. We like the window indicator which shows how much water is in the tank. We then can get an idea of how much water is being taken out of the air and when it is full enough to empty before it turns off.

        We cannot believe how quiet it is when running--it sounds as though it is a quiet fan rather than a dehumidifier. With our previous dehumidifier, as soon as we opened the door at the top of the basement stairs, we could hear it running. With the Soleus, we have to walk down to the bottom of the stairs in order to hear it running. We can actually watch tv in the same room as the dehumidifier and are able to hear the tv without a problem. Prior to owning the Soleus, we had to turn our old dehumidifier off in order to watch tv.

        If this product continues to perform the way it does now, I would definitely buy another one, and I will recommend it to others.

        This unit has a short life and is a poor performer. If the model is still made buy another one, then return the defective unit in the new unit's packaging for a refund or replace and use second unit as a back-up, when the new one you just bought poops out (sooner rather than later?).

        Comments about Soleus Air CFM-40E Dehumidifier:

        CFM-40E works only for one year during summer. works great, but I cannot buy a new unit every year. I have bought 5 of this unit in the past 4 years, and everyone of them stopped collecting water after the first year.

              I bought this in 2011 and used it for few weeks, then I kept in the storage, after 21 months I need it, but it look like that the fan is running without collecting any water. so it was west of money.

              Thanks

                  Dry as a Bone would be good if you were talking about the room you were trying to dehumidify. It's not good if you are talking about the drainage tank. My CFM-40E works like a charm, but doesn't collect ANY water.

                  It's now just a piece of junk.

                  Comments about Soleus Air CFM-40E Dehumidifier:

                  Used it for 4 months last summer, put it away, and when we took it out again, the compressor failed to function. It's been 13 months since we bought it, so it is not covered under the warranty.

                  Have been using the Soleus Air CFM-40E dehumidifier since it's arrival. Perfect for removing humidity in areas that it is not wanted.

                  The water tank is a little hard to pull out to empty. The tank is hard to empty into a bucket to dump without and handle and it spills over bucket. It is very quiet.

                  Comments about Soleus Air CFM-40E Dehumidifier:

                  I purchased this dehumidifier for a basement storage room in Georgia. It is a finished room, but it does have an entrance to a crawl space in it, thereby creating the need for
                  moisture control. The Soleus has been wonderful! At least once a day, I easily empty a full container of water. The "window" on the side of the machine is easy to read and clearly shows the current level of water collected. water inside. The basement is now free of any unwanted moisture and I would heartily recommend this dehumidifier!
