Ionmax 632 user advice
Some say the Ionmax dehumidifier is very noisy. A simple tip to reduce noise to a bare minimum, that is not explained in the manuals operating instructions is to lock the oscillating air escape rotor a little higher than midway between the forward and upright positions. To do this you need to press the swing button four times in quick succession. The first press activates the forward position, the second press moves to forward, the third press moves to wide, and the fourth press stops it in the position required. Sounds complicated, but with good timing and watching the movement of the rotor, you can lock it in any position you want.

Quality product, simple to use, great customer service
If you live in a cold, high humidity environment, this is the appliance for you. I don't find it noisy at all, especially on the low setting (I only ever use high to dry laundry). I can sleep with the machine running beside me on low very easily. It quickly dries out a room and raises the temperature by a couple of degrees, and costs about 12c per hour to run on low (paying about 28c per kW/h). No more musty smells or condensation on the window. It's been running for five years now, and after a snag with Ionmax's emails going to my Gmail spam folder (I ordered a smaller model that was temporarily out of stock), they upgraded me to the 632 no questions asked. Highly recommended.

So Noisy.. .arghhh! selling it on gumtree.
Damn this thing is noisy. and the airpulsing sound is terrible. Its like driving on the freeway with all the windows open. You cant hear anything else.
i would recommend buying a different brand.

Very good dehumidifier. Ours has been running here almost every day for about 7 years. Would definitely buy another one of these. Don't forget to check the air filter occasionally .

Our home is now much more comfortable and doesn't feel as cold/damp. Definitely works well. High quality product with easy to follow instructions. Fan is very audible but use to it.

LOVE IT! Dries laundry overnight in raining winter
I initially purchased this because we had a water leak and even though we had professional flood remediaters I was worried about lingering dampness, but what has made it a day to day joy is the laundry drying function. I can literally dry a wool jumper on a rack overnight on the coldest wet night of the year. It has been a godsend!

Excellent Damp Control
I bought this dehumidifier because my son was having bad allergy problems due to the mould and damp in his room. He couldn't breathe properly and had rashes. It imoroved the quality of the air and when put on the highest setting even reduced the need to use the reverse cycle air con. The amount of water in the tray was substantial so it was definitely drawing lots of moisture out of the air. East to use controls. The breathing and rashes have improved as a result of the drawing power of this machine

Great quality dehumidifier
I bought one of these, manufacturer refurbished for well under half their retail price, and I have to say that I'm extremely impressed. After some research I chose this model, recommended by Choice and rated highly on PR, and I was particularly looking for a desiccant dehumidifier as they apparently work just as well in the cold as they do in the warm weather, plus (in my mind, at least) there seem like there are fewer things that can go wrong with them. This one has exceeded expectations.
The fan is a little noisy on high, but that would b...e my only complaint and it's better than the constant low hum of a compressor. It holds 3.5L in the tank and includes a continuous drainage outlet so you never need to empty it if it's placed near a drain. The controls are easy to use and it includes a handy off-timer. Would definitely recommend to others, particularly if you can find one cheap.
After researching for ages, decided to buy this one after all the good reviews and I do not regret it.
I also bought another brand so I could compare, luckily both were good.
We have this in our bathroom en suite and we tip out bucket loads of water daily.
It actually warms up the room so no need to put on air con as well.
Dries out the shower cubicle and the bath towels nicely.
Comes with 2 year warranty.
Do not like things going mouldy in the house.
Our cupboard doors and skirting would have mould so hopefully time will tell if it will fix this problem.
We love it so far and would not be without it.
Bought off Ebay when they had their 10% off offer and also won it at an auction.
Amazing dehumidifier. Bought as windows and bathroom were condensing over the winter months and Mould was beginning to grow and spread. Running the 632 for an hour clears up the excess water, smells and dampness around the house. Tank is super easy to empty and collects a lot of water. No complaints here!
We ordered this out of desperation after our kitchen was invaded by mould and I had to throw out the sea salt as it turned to liquid in the pantry. It arrived the very next day (yesterday) and we had it on for five hours in the afternoon/evening. This morning the tank was almost full of water and there was NO condensation not the windows or walls this morning (usually they would be dripping each morning. Walking into the kitchen first thing was like walking into a freezing cold pool. So cold and damp).
It absolutely does what it says it does. I am very happy and look forward to using it all winter long.
Fantastic- it makes a huge difference to the air quality
I use this every day and move it to different rooms in my houses whenever I notice condensation on windows. It collects at least 3 litres of water a day on automatic and the improvement in air quality is noticeable. I've had it for 4 years now and it's still operating perfectly..
Does exactly what it should!
Got this machine off eBay for $500. Extracts a lot of moisture from our house. Condensation on our windows is 80% less than it used to be; and that is only with the machine running 4 hours a day. It is doing so well that I am upping the time we use it for. Really happy with our purchase.
We moved to a new house and discovered pretty quickly that our study was on a damp patch of the plot and shaded by trees which meant mould on our piles of paper and even on some of our books! The machine is quite noisy so we only switch it on when we aren't in the room but it does a great job and the amount of water that we pour out each day is incredible.
Of course I'd heard about mould, but I had never experienced it myself.
Lived for the past few years with condensation on the windows, especially so in winter. Never suspected that it would affect clothing in the bedroom cupboard . . . until one day I noticed 'mould' on one particular jacket. Prompted me to inspect other items of clothing - i.e.. not worn for some time.
Horrified to discover mould on at least 60% of our clothes.
Threw the whole lot out!

I was looking for a dehumidifier after our house started leaking and mould starting growing on the wall.
I researched all models and I found this one to be the best value for money.
I paid $500 July 2016.
I am so happy with this machine, so happy.
It does exactly what it says.
It removes so much water.
It's taken away the smell.
No more condensation.
I've had my Ionmax about three years now and I couldn't be more happy with its performance. The amount of water the Ionmax removes from our house is truly amazing. It takes away that mouldy smell that you get when the house has been closed up. I wouldn't be without it, especially in rainy, damp weather. It's not a quiet appliance, so I just put it on in the daytime
Fixed my condensation problem
I have floor to ceiling glass windows and every winter, I have a really bad problem with condensation to the point water is dripping from the windows onto the carpet.
I received this last night and I've been running it for 14 hours, it has collected approximately 8L of water and I can't believe my eyes. No condensation on the windows!
I absolutely recommend this to those of you with condensation issues, this really works!
Really Easy to Repair
The unit started making a grinding sound and the desiccant wheel stopped turning. It turns out the 5rpm microwave motor inside had seized up. You can order this part for about $10-15 on eBay as it's a standard part you can modify slightly to fit. However I just took it apart, cleaned and regreased the unit and it was back up and running better than before. Keep up the good work guys, these are really well made devices.

The specifications say that it use's between 400-720 Watts Power Consumption, is that right? Isn't that not energy efficient at all?
We usually turn it on during the days to use the solar panels.
Look at it this way, I'd rather have no mould on our clothes or anywhere just to save a few bucks but I do understand your concern.
In winter we have it on at nights & it warms up the bed room, also drys up the laundry too at the same time (kills three birds with one stone LOL). We have two dehumidifiers, two different brands one upstairs & one downstairs, can't live without them. Hope this helps, good luck.
Well explained. Thank you so much
