Question about Amana D530M Dehumidifier
This humidifier one year old, was working fine, just stopped working. No lites, no fan or compressor run. Have 120 volts at circuit bd. fuse, fuse is OK. Tank switch OK, humidistat OK, My guess is the circuit board is defective. It has these numbers on it:
Is this circuit board available? Cost?
We all appear to be in the same mess --Thanx Haier
This product says its Amana, but rest assured it is an Haier
The problem is most likely with the engineering design of the board. Im not an electrical engineer so be careful litning to me to closely :) There is only a half bridge rectifier on this board and 2 zener diodes that clamp down on the voltage. My guess on yours is the Zeners have been shorted and no longer clamping voltage down to aroun 24 volts for the low side of the board. I spoke with Haier and they have no schematics that state the zener specifications. They also said there was a 6 month backorder on ordering a new board. Oh and by the way if you want to order a new board and wait 6 months for the backorder it would cost you 75.00. All this jsut to repeat the problem again, because of bad design. O well ----- I wish products were not made better, so I wouldnt have to fill guilty about putting this in the landfills.

My stupid Amana D530M died as well, maybe 18 months old. The control board appeared to be the problem. (Like everyone elses) Amana sucks. I will never select Amana anything again, unless they start to sell beer.
I can't find a replacement board, so I wired the blower and compressor leads to the fuse, and then back to the main power lead, bypassing all of the control board functions.
Basically, you plug it in, and it runs fine, fan hi/lo speed still works.
There is no full tank sensor as well, obviously. So, I hooked a hose up, right to my floor drain.
I am not recommending anyone does this, just sharing what I did. I didn't want to haul this to the landfill, until it's dead.

Solution is very simple . Don't buy any of these Amana units . I had three of them . One lasted 1 year the other two 2 years in the D545m model . These things are cheap but they are junk!!!!!!!!!!!!
