Starting tripping circuit breaker


Good Afternoon Dennis - Often when this occurs, it is because there are too many appliances on the circuit or something may have a weak or poor breaker. Try plugging the unit in a different location or on its own circuit. If the issue continues, then it could also be possible that something shorted within the unit. So in this case, because it is a smaller appliance, repairs are often more costly than the actual unit replacement. You may want to check and see if your dehumidifier is still under warranty and if so, reach out to the manufacturer to determine the exact warranty coverage. Thanks for allowing me to help you.

Haier dehumidifier will not power on


Turn the ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes.
Once the time has elapsed, plug the unit in and turn the unit ON.

Hopefully, during that 15 minute timeout, the electronics reset and reverted back to the original factory settings. And the unit will turn ON when you press the ON/OFF Switch.

It's also a good idea to check the outlet it's plugged into. It very well could be an issue with the outlet (no power) or the circuit breaker for that outlet has tripped.

If you continue to have a problem getting it started, contact LG Customer Support 1-800-243-0000.

Will not turn on no indicator lights filter and coils are clean is there a breaker inside somewhere


No, no breaker. It may simply be the case of the water collection bucket is not installed properly. When that happens, nothing will work. Remove the bucket and check the top of the inside of the bucket for a float valve (if yours is so equipped). It may be stuck in the 'UP' position, which makes the unit think the bucket is full & everything turns OFF. If you see one, and the float valve is UP, jiggle the arm of the float valve to get it to return to the DOWN position.

Whether your unit has a float valve or not, when you reinstall the bucket, be sure to install it "squarely" from top to bottom, so that it makes firm contact with the bucket safety removal switch on the back wall of the bucket holder. When installed properly, the bottom of the bucket should not tilt down at all.

If none of the above solved solved the problem,it may be an electrical issue. The circuit breaker for the outlet it's plugged into may have tripped. Check your home's circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker. If you find one, unplug the dehumidifier before resetting the circuit breaker. Also, the wall outlet may be damaged or have a loose wiring connection.

All of the above are things that you should troubleshoot first. It's a process of elimination to determine what is causing the problem.

I hope this has helped to get you started on solving the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The dehumidifier won't run. I adjust the humidistat up and down and nothing. worked fine up until that point.


Brad, there are several solvable things that can cause this:

1. The water collection bucket is not installed properly. Remove the bucket and reinstall it in such
a way that it fit's "squarely" into it's holder from top to bottom and makes contact with the bucket
safety removal switch on the back wall of the holder. When installed properly, the bottom of the
bucket will not tilt down at all.

2. The float valve in the top of the bucket (if yours is equipped) is either stuck in the 'UP' position or
float valve arm is broken. If it's stuck in the up position, jiggle the arm of the valve to make it
return to the 'DOWN' position. The float valve arm can be replaced if necessary. But in some
cases, you must purchase a new bucket with one already installed.

3. The outlet the unit is plugged into is faulty. Check your home's circuit breaker panel for a tripped
circuit breaker. If one is tripped, unplug the dehumidifier before resetting the breaker. If none is
tripped, check the outlet for power. It may have a loose or damaged wire on one of the terminals.

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

Hi my Danby DDR4588EE Dehumidifier's buttons aren't working


Hi! I'm assuming that the unit is plugged in and the outlet the unit is plugged into is working (if not, is there a tripped circuit breaker, in your home's circuit breaker panel?). Also, that you have turned ON The Master ON/OFF Switch and the Water Collection Bucket is installed properly and the Float Valve inside the bucket is in the Down position

If you answered NO to any of the above, turn the the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit, before checking those things first. Because, 9 times out of 10, one of thee above is the culprit.

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

I have a Kenmore dehumidifier 580.54701. It worked fine for two years, but now when it is plugged in and you hit "on" nothing happens. I took it apart, but cannot tell what is wrong. Do you think...


It could need replacing or the outlet that the unit is plugged into is at fault. Check you main circuit breaker panel, to see if a breaker has been tripped. Also, check the outlet's receptacle for internal damage or a loose or broken wire. In addition, try plugging it into another receptacle that is on a different circuit, than the one it's plugged into now. All these things are part of the process of elimination, in troubleshooting and finding the problem.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Demudifier worked great, all a sudden it just stopped. No power. Now it won't start up. What should I try?


First, check the outlet that it's plugged into, to make sure that there's still power to the outlet. If there isn't, then the circuit breaker for that outlet has been tripped, in your home's circuit breaker panel. Leave the dehumidifier unplugged and reset the circuit breaker. If it trips again, without the dehumidifier unplugged, then the outlet is at fault. Perhaps there's a loose wire connection or the interior of the outlet is cracked.

If it didn't trip without the dehumidifier plugged in, plug the unit it in,. But, before you do, make sure the dehumidifier's Master ON/OFF Switch is OFF. Once it's plugged in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. If it runs now, GREAT! If it trips the circuit breaker again, there's either a short in the power cord or an internal electrical short. Which will require extensive troubleshooting to find.

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

Won't power on


Several things could cause the dehumidifier to not turn on. It could be the switch itself, or the power cord, or some internal component. If you have a multimeter, you can take the unit apart and test the switch and the power cord.

Also make sure the outlet is getting power and no circuit breaker has been tripped.

Same problem as both above. Humidifier trips after maybe 5 minutes. Top of machine is very warm; there's no on/off switch, so plugging in does nothing until the heat dissapates. What's the solution, to just buy a new piece of equipment?
