Question about Maytag M7DH45B2A Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Fan The black plastic fan on my unit broke and now my dehumidifier sounds like a lawn mower. I know I have to replace it, but I don't know the product number to find it online. Do you know what the product number is for that fan?

    By the way, if you have the luxury of knowing that your fan is broken, stop using the unit immediately! If the motor stops, it will burn up. $20 is cheaper than $20+$50.

The unit turns on compressor and the fan after awhile the fan turns off and compressor still on.


Sounds like it is a bad fan or bearings. Try shutting off the unit as soon as the fan shuts off and see if the fan turns freely. If not, the fan bearings need lubrication or replacement. If they are not serviceable, you will need to replace the entire fan.

Compressor runs and gets hot but fan will not kick on. Replaced the capacitor and that did not help. One side of coils gets hot, the other side gets cold, which seems normal. Just can't get the fan...


Don't run the compressor for any length of time without the fan operating. Is it possible that the fan must be replaced? Can you power the fan safely to test it?

My Daby dehumidifier will sometimes have coade P1 show up on LED readout and also go to high fan. I have it in basement and set at 50% and low fan. What is the problem? I have to disconnect and reconnect...


don't know what the P1 code means, but maybe your demand of 50% and low fan is not able to be achieved so the unit will increase the CFMs (high speed on fan) to try and reach the 50% humidity level you are asking it to do within a certain time period.

Dear Sir , the dehumidifier is running the motor is running, but not sending out any water. I have cleaned the filter.n Any recommendations?


Is it only the fan motor running that you hear? Or is it the compressor motor and the fan motor in combination?

If it's just the fan motor, it running to circulate the air, in an effort to sense humidity in the air, above the level you have the humidifier set on. Speaking of which, you may have the level set higher than what the humidity is in the house and the unit is just maintaining it. 50 to 60% is high, as opposed to 35%, which is what most folks want to maintain in the hot, humid, summer months.

If you want to test the unit, place in the bathroom, turn a hot shower ON, turn the humidifier ON and set it for 45% or minimum if your unit does not have a LED readout screen. Do Not turn the bathroom exhaust fan ON. As you leave the bathroom, close the door and don't return for 20 minutes. When you do, turn the shower OFF and check the humidifiers water collection bucket. If you see any water, the unit is working as it should. If you don't see any water, it's time to replace that unit. I say that because, at best, the parts and labor to repair the unit would be equal to or almost equal to, the price of a new dehumidifier.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks

It sounds like the fan has etached from its hub. This usually is not repairable if that's the case. Replace the fan.

Most likely the fan motor is broke. I have seen several units with bad fan motors.

Doesn't want to stay on...


Most likely the fan motor has broken. Without the fan, the compressor will overheat. There is a safety device inside that automatically shuts off the compressor to keep the overheating from destroying it. Check to see if you can feel air movement in the front or back of the unit while it is running. If not, then the fan motor has definitely broke. I had this exact problem on mine.

If you take the unit apart, you will find a parts list inside the unit. It will be inside a small plastic pouch. You can order a new fan motor from Sears. The cost is $30 plus shipping.

You will have to move the condensing coil in the front out a bit in order to exchange the motors. Just be careful not to break any of the copper lines. They are copper so they will flex quite a bit without breaking. Still, use caution. If you break the lines, all the refrigerant will leak out and your unit will be useless.
