Burning smell from my dehumidifier

The light was on indicating a full bucket so I'm not sure f it has stopped running. There was an obvious burning electrical smell around the unit vents. What could this be? I'm wondering if it makes sense to check it for repairs or puchase a new one. It is 3 years old so some parts are under warranty.

Check the coils for partial icing. Id recommend unplugging it leaving it to defrost and plug back in. If still not working check coils again. If partially frozen you have a sealed system leak. The fan being noisy can be a sign its not working and not spinning high enough to cool coils for proper operation. Try taking a shower and leaving dehum in with you, After a shower leave in for about a hr, if water collects you prob have a failed fan. Id recommend repurchasing if OOW. Due to costs.

Your bucket full switch may be defective. If you are capable, bypass it since you are draining to another place other than the bucket.

Same problem with Goldstar model DH404EY7 -- stop code 01 on startup, bucket full light blinks (drains to floor).

Replaced the main controller board to fix it.

For my model dehumidifer the part # is 6871A20888A, and cost $77.44 (not counting shipping) from Appliance Factory Parts. The Appliance Factory Parts web site also provides parts breakdown (exploded parts diagram) diagrams and service manuals in PDF form.

Dehumidifier stopped working because "water bucket full" indicator light stays on, although there is no water in bucket.


In the water bucket is a float assm. scale forms on the assm. and causes it to stick. Remove the float assm. and carefully remove the scale. Should start working again once done. If not you may have to replace it.

The light indicating that "bucket


This usually happens when either the Float Valve in the bucket is stuck in the UP position (if yours is so equipped. Jiggle it to get it to return to the DOWN position.

If you humidifier's bucket is not so equipped. It's usually an indication that the bucket was not reinstalled properly, after it was removed. To check and correct this, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Remove the bucket and reinsert it, making sure that it fits "squarely" in the bucket holder from Top to Bottom. Once installed, make sure the bottom of the bucket is not tilted down in any way. Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. If it was reinstalled correctly, the bucket full light should have gone off and the unit will run as it should, if the humidity extraction level is set low enough.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

The unit is showing "full


Two things generally cause this problem. If your unit has a Float Valve inside the bucket, it's stuck in the 'Up' position, which under normal conditions, indicates to the unit, that the bucket is FULL. If you don't have that, then when the bucket was last inserted into the bucket holder, it did not trip the bucket removal safety switch. Remove the bucket and reinstall it, making sure that it fits squarely into the hole from top to bottom. Leave the unit ON when you do this, because if you do it correctly, the unit will automatically start and run. Also, be sure that humidity extraction level is set on 32 - 35 %.

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

Light saying bucket is full is on all the time and unit is not working


Hello,

First, make sure the reservoir is empty. If you plug the unit in and see a green power light, but the unit won't run, make sure the reservoir is properly inserted.

Many dehumidifiers have switches or sensors to make sure that the reservoir is placed so that it won't leak. Look for these sensors and make sure the reservoir is engaging them. If your dehumidifier has a float or switch to indicate a full reservoir, make sure this switch isn't being tripped accidentally.

Good luck.
