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:

Need help wih dehumidifier Kenmore model#2519970180000451

well first ive never read in any manual that tells the homeowner to remove cover on any apliance , in fact the only cleaning ive ever read is clean the filter , this is right in front on side and slides right out and can be washed in sink with soap and water (do not scrub) but yes cleaning the condenser coils will require you to remove cover this is purposly made somewhat a challenge to discourage homeowners from hurting them selfs as there are live electrical parts and sharp edges inside , i sugest a qualified appliance repairman be contracted to have a look

Dehumidifier manual

Good morning friend, thanks for your post!

Based off what you're explaining it sounds like your Frigidaire dehumidifier might not be leveled. Any time your dehumidifier is not properly leveled water will not drain out the rear but instead into the bucket. I would recommend checking to assure your appliance is leveled. If your dehumidifier is leveled detach the hose to make sure nothing is blocking the water for exiting into the hose. If those steps are unsuccessful and you continue to get water into the bucket please respond back and I can research more information for you. Best of luck. -Matt

Hi... I have a challenge ram 710 dehumidifier, the fan has stopped working but there is power to it, when i took it out it is all greasy and black like all the lube has seeped out... does anyone know where...

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.

A challenge dehumidifier not collecting water

If the room tempature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
I out mine over the floor drain.
Turn off and it will defost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifers work below a room temo of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensot from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.

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.
