Humidistat Test

I bought a 45 pint dehumidifier from Sears and am suspecting there is problem in the auto control of humidity because the machine is always on even I set the humidity setting to 70%, which is the highest setting possible. I have a very small basement, and even in the winter it never stopped. How could I test if the humidistat is working or not? or it's just too much moisture? Thanks for your response.

Take it up stairs and see if it will shut off. Or there are humidity indicators you can buy. Also you could get a Sling psychrometer, this can tell you what the humidity is. Boy in the winter it just dont seem like you could have a 70% humidity in the home with the furnace on .ED
