Question about Whirlpool AD50USL Dehumidifier
Unit has operated without any problems for over two years connected to a GFI circuit. Now the unit trips the GFI. No evidence of dirt build-up on the coils. GFI does not appear to be faulty as other appliances (shop-vac) operate OK without tripping the GFI. Unit operates OK when plugged into a circuit without a GFI and does not trip circuit breaker. This is not a satisfactory solution because I want to use the unit in a basement where all the outlets are GFI circuits.
I have a Whirlpool Model AD$)DSR1 Dehumidifier, with similar issues. When plugged in where it was operating for three years with no problems, it would trip the gfci within 10 minutes. I have it out in the garage right now with all the covers off, and I've had it running on a heavy duty outlet for about a half hour now. The compressor is too hot to touch (ouch!), and the condenser coils are only cool, when they should be quite cold. I am ready to judge that one of two things has happened: Either the compressor is bad, or the refrigerant has leaked out of the system.

MOST APP/ THAT HAVE MOTORS OR COMPRESORS CANT BE CONNECTED TO YOUR REG-HOME GFI'S THEY ARE 15AMP AND TO SENSATIVE THEY WILL TRIP EVERY TIME THE VOLTAGE GOES UP AND DOWN . LIKE YOUR FRIG OR WASHER OR DRYER WILL DO THE SAME. PLUG IT INTO A REG OUTLET THAT IS NOT SO OVERLOADED WITH OTHER STUFF.
