DeLonghi DH90U: Compressor won't stay on

Hi,
I have a DeLonghi DH90U. The unit will run, but when the compressor kicks in, it will only stay on for a minute before shutting off. The unit is still running (only the fan is running), but the compressor is off. This cycle will continue every few minutes indefinitely.

Is the unit a goner or is it worth repairing? There is some rust in the drain bucket, and filter is clean.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Mark

The unit just stopped extracting any moisture from the air. The fan runs and the compressor sounds like it turns on. I use the bucket to capture the moisture so do not have the pump on for the hose.


If the unit isnt extracting moisture in the air you have one of two problems a leak in the refrigeration system or the compressor is locked up. In my experience its probably a leak in the refrigeration system because they make the dehumidifiers very cheap and the coils are paper thin. Delonghi has a lot of issues with there dehumidifiers and any other appliance they make. Check to see if the compressor is running if it is then you have no freon in the system. You can access the compressor by the back panel and you will know if it is running. If it is a refrigeration leak buy a new unit it will be a whole lot cheaper and less stressful,.
If this helps please rate me.

Hi... my dehumidifier compressor will not turn on, the fan runs fine and the time 2 hr/4hr cycles work, but the compressor wont kick on, the filter is clean and the unit is no more than 2 yrs old. Any...


Sounds like the compressor is inoperative. Most, if not all new units have no means of recharging the freon if it leaks out. If the coils are not cooling, the compressor is not operating and the unit will not dehumidify.

Runs but doesn't work (no water accumulates)


It sounds like what you hear working is the fan. The unit also has a compressor; if the compressor is bad or the freon is gone, the fan will run but the coils wont cool to remove moisture from the air.

Hi,
The compressor has gone bad and will not start... what you he3ar is the compressor trying to start....it will probably cost you more to replace that compressor then buying a new unit...
