Hi Bonsia,

Does this unit freeze in warm weather?
How old is it?

You said, I have a Maytag M7DH665B2A Dehumidifier that freezes solid and has a corroded sensor that's fallen off the coils.

My recommendation is replace it!

Here is an interesting article I just read!


.Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Buck, as you seem to be aware, Fedders no longer exist as the Fedders you may have been familiar with 8 years ago. Finding manuals and parts, is like looking for a needle in a hay stack. However, the new company Airwell-Fedders may be able to help you. There Customer Support Dept 866-829-2440, is who you need to contact.

There is one other possible source, as some parts are interchangeable. Appliance Factory Parts
http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/airconditioners/fedders/ does carry some of the older Fedders Parts, as well as Maytag. So, that may be worth a try.

Hope this helps you find the parts you need. Good luck and please let me know how it worked out for you. Thanks.

I would check if the compressor is starting... my first thought is that the compressor is either locked pu or not starting right because of a bad capacitor...


There are many reasons why a dehumidifier will not work or collect water.

Dehumidifier model M7DH65b 2A


Its too old where you are running the appliance - lift it up in the air or raise the heat in the room. This is *not* a low-temp dehumidifier.

i do believe you have it right. either you are low on freon 22 or the coil sensor and clip has failed so it can not shut off for cold conditions. the sensor can be tie wrapped back on if it is that, the plactic should not fail
