Checked the readings... Was 50% an hr ago and now up to 55%. Was a bit worried then... but glad to know it will take up to 6hrs to return to normal.
That's why I bit the bullet and got a digital 1. Saves me the worry. :-\
Aye... Wanted to but blur lor... bought the wrong one.
Just bought a dhc and get replaced dud to faulty
My RH shows 42-49% and it only take <3 mins to reactivate again after powered off so I am wondering is this normal? I found a few gap around door so I worry this will give problem since it powered up again so fast.
u got a leak
door seal could be old and cracking or there might be a 'pinch' along one or more points of the seal letting outside air in or theoriginal silicone used to attach the seal to the door wear and tear away
get some plastacine from any bookshop and close up the holes as necessary
or can use silicone too from any DIY shop
one easy way to test if there is a leak in your dry cabinet ....... swing the door to close on its own ..... if it closes with a damping effect or soft 'ooomphh' the seal is good ...... if it closes with a slam or bang..... air is escaping out somewhere killing the damping effect

shaddap and just shoot .... up close
I tried your suggested method and it didn't give a bang sound although hard to swing the door easily. However, I shine those gap with torch light and I can see light inside. Btw, do you know how long will it stay in power off mode normally before reactivate again?
