I also had exactly the same problem with my RAM170 Dehumidifier, it's a very common problem with them. The good news is, assuming the motor winding has not burnt out, then problems with the fan motor can easily be corrected. It's now over two years ago that I carried out the following procedure with the motor in my RAM 170 and it has continued to function with no further problems. Firstly take a photograph or make a drawing of the motor assemble, then fully dismantle it. Thoroughly clean all the black (gungy) mess off the spindle and bearings, WD40 is good for this. Next apply a small amount of light grade oil (it must be thin oil) such as Singer Sewing Machine oil (about 60 pence for a small can) to the spindle and bearings, then fully reassemble. When assembled the motor should spin freely.

I have just bought a secondhand challenge 414/0038 and I cant find where you empty the water when using dehumidifier?? As you can guess I didn`t get any instructions with it


There is a rubber bung on the bottom of the back of the unit. You remove this bung and water will drain out.
However you should read the manual because most of the humidity is supposed to come out of the exhaust with the hot air. I'm not sure how this works but it's in the manual

Please find the manual you need here:

Dehumidifier (challenge 12ltr) gives off a smell a nasty when running.


Clean the filters and the coil. Use a mild bleach solution if there is mold present.

To connect a drain pipe


Find where the leak is coming from. Is it coming from the connection where the tube goes into the dehumidifier or where the garden hose screws on? If it is where the garden hose screws on make sure it is screwed on all the way. If it is you may just need to replace the rubber washer in the garden hose.
