Not working I purchased the dehumidifier one and half years ago. It just stopped working. It sounds like the fan is clicking but thats it. It lights up and displays the numbers of degrees but thats it. You can even push buttons to change settings.

Re: not working

The key in the fan blade is soft plastic and it rounds out and the fan slips. also it can make a clicking sound or banging sound because the broken key causes the plastic sleve that slides over the motor shaft cracks.

Why does compressor continue running, even with dehumidifier turned off?

Hello Bernard, thank you for your post!
I see that you are experiencing an issue with the Frigidaire dehumidifier, FAD704DWD, compressor consistently being on. This could be a possible issue with your control panel or sensor. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would suggest contacting the manufacturer for further assistance. Hopefully this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Delonghi Dem 10 dehumidifier has stopped working - the 'operational light' turns on, but the fan does not start up so nothing happens.

It could be that the fan / fan motor has seized or jammed. Have a look through the vents and see if you can spin the fan. If not, you will need to strip the machine. Try lubricating the bushes / bearings. Often on these type of units, the vapours dry out the bushes and then they get tight and jam the fan.

You may need a new fan motor. If you can get to this
motor, with the power disconnected, see if the blade
is free to move. Do you hear any sound coming from
this unit?

01% humidity

When you push the power button, the blower fan comes on. In a few minutes you should hear a second "click"--that is your compressor starting. Do you hear that second click?

The compressor is located in the rear bottom on the right side looking at the machine. After you press the start button and the blower fan comes on, bend over near the back of the unit and listen for the "click".

Unfortunately this is quite common for most DH's of this type. The only one that I have found that does not have a reputation for losing the fan or compressor after a year or two is the Whirlpool.

Dehumidifier not dehumidifying ...

Save the old one for parts if you get the same new one but I def. don't reccomend buying this unit again. The reviews are bad. The fan is not covered under the warranty except first year or extented warranty. I spoke with Kenmore & Sears about this to see if coverd under 5 yr. Only compressor,tubing & refrigeration system(see inside of front cover for warranty info.)

Sound more like a sensor/circuit board problem to me since fan is turning. I think the signal determins which setting fan needs via sensor assembly to run. I could be wrong. Justa thought.

Can you def. hear the compressor come on. You can look through grill to see fan spin & the compressor makes a clank/clunking noise/ The fan & compressor should turn same time. Good luck! If you got any info. on my fan problem & you have update or fixed your problem I ccould use some help. Check post for my problem.. Thanks! panfan1
