Question about Kenmore 54351 Dehumidifier
Hi, This is a relatively new dehumidifier. When I open it all up, it looks brand new inside! No frost, no mildew, all shiny and clean. :) The problem is that I put the bucket in carefully trying to position it correctly.....I hear a little click....it runs for a second, and then stops. I looked at the red button inside that would make contact with the back of the bucket.....and when I press it (as the bucket would) it MIGHT start....the most I would hear would be a click. If it did start, it would quickly stop. I see what that red button is attched to inside the unit................what is that? And how would I replace it? And where would I get that part? I read all the other messages....I hope I am not asking the same question. Thank you. MizzR
Your problem might be with the switch itself. remove the back of the unit. on the lower right side is the switch. with the bucket in place and the unit turned on play with the red or black wire. there might be an intermittent problem. if so look in the manual for the parts breakdown. it will list the part number for the switch. not hard to change. first remove the bucket,then go to the red button and remove the button. behind the button is a nut which holds the switch in place. remove the nut and the switch will come off from the back-----good luck
