How can I get my machine to shut itself off when humidity goes down to 55 and turn on when it goes up igher?

wow 55 is kinda low , id think a little more realistic number to set your machine to achieve would be 70% rh as lots of folks don't know this, that its just as important to have unit cycle off as it is to be on , this provides a cool down/thaw cycle and keeps unit working for years , if your unit has no %rh readout on it , a simple purchase of a external meter placed in the room would work just fine and I find there now available just near everywhere and not for a high cost

My dehumidifier model BHD-501-D is icing up. The fan and compressor are running, do I need a new thermostat?

You may, but more than likely, the air intake filer needs to be cleaned and the compressor coils wiped down and cleaned. After cleaning the coils, a light coat of WD40 helps to preserve them.

Before attempting any cleaning or service work, turn the unit OFF and unplug it from the wall outlet and allow it to thoroughly thaw. Keep in mind, a dehumidifier will freeze up, if the room temperature is below 40 degrees. Also, where you have it installed may be a problem. Particuarly, a basement. Where the air temperature is colder at floor level.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, I have included a link to it that you can download & print for future reference. Be advised, your Model Number is not for a Sunbeam Dehumidifier, it's for a Comfort Aire dehumidifier that's manufactured by Heat Controller Inc.


I hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
