If a dehumidifier seems incompetent, it may be undersized for the space. Check the unit's specifications to be sure it can handle the room size. If you don?t want to replace it with a larger one, try closing doors and dehumidifying your space a section at a time. You can also: 1) Disconnect the power cord. 2) Remove the cover and clean the condenser and evaporator coils, as discussed above. 3) Lubricate the fan motor bearings with a couple of drops of oil if the motor has oil ports (some units don't need to be oiled). While you?re at it, make sure that the condenser isn?t clogged with dust or dirt. 4) If it still operates poorly, call an appliance repairperson for advice or take the unit into an appliance repair shop.

First, check the source of the power to the unit, Has a circuit breaker in your home's circuit breaker panel been tripped? If so, unplug the unit, before resetting the circuit breaker. If that's not the case, check the outlet it's plugged into. It may be damaged or have a loose wiring connection. Be sure to turn the circuit breaker for that receptacle OFF, before removing the cover plate.

If all of the above checks out OK, check the water collection bucket, as it may need to be emptied and/or the bucket was not reinstalled properly or the float valve in the top of the bucket is stuck in the UP position, If so, jiggle the arm of the float valve to get to return to the DOWN position.

When reinstalling the bucket, be sure that it fits "squarely" into it's holder and makes firm contact with the bucket safety removal switch.

I hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hi- I have a Kenmore dehumdifier that has stopped filling up with water. It sounds like it is working but no water is in the tank. Any ideas?

A dehumidifier works with heat, so you should see if it is getting warm or not. Although the fan is working (sound you hear) it might not be working other than the fan. If you have a clamp on amp meter you could see how many amps it is drawing which is usually quite high.

Bad smell coming from dehumdifier from the air outlet

Lin, the air intake filter may need cleaning and the water collection bucket may have a mold and mildew buildup. Cleaning both things, may solve the smelly problem.

Tank fills up but connected to hose FDL70S1

I had the same problem. It seems that you need to add another hose washer to the drain hose that connects to the dehumdifier. I wasn't able to tighten it enough by hand to keep it from leaking. BE CAREFUL ! ! The plastic connector in the dehumdifier is just that PLASTIC so don't try to overtighten with a pliers, etc... I still get a minimal amount of water in the bucket but only have to dump every 4-6 weeks, if even that.

Delonghi Dehumidifier E! error

I Had an E error (not an E1 error) when I was fiddling with my humidity/temp sensor on the face of the radiator fins (behind air filter).  The sensor was WET.  I dabbed it dry, let it sit all day, and re-assembled.  It works fine now.
