Sometimes my dehumifier (Goldstar) leaks. It is not full and the collecting bucket is fitted properly. I see that there is a flap around the pipe coming from the coils. Is it possible that this flap is...


Gary, most of the time, what you described is caused by 2 thing:

1. The cooling coils are icing up and not thawing as they should. This is usually caused by a dirty or clogged air intake filter. Solution: Turn the unit OFF, unplug it and remove and clean the air intake filter.

2. The drain hole or tubing, that drains water into the bucket is clogged. Solution: Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar that is flexible (NO wire coat hangers, though) and appropriately sized to fit into the hole or tubing. Carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in, until to reach the bend in the tubing. You must gingerly work it past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. While slowly pulling it out, rotate (twist) the Zip Tie and as it reaches it's end, be prepared for some water to follow. That procedure will loosen any clogs.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let e know. Thanks.

Technical service manual for the 54501 Dehumidifier


Again, this is shown as a Goldstar LD50EL. But, it is the same model as the Kenmore and is the actual unit built FOR Kenmore. Below is the url for the tech service manual. http://136.166.4.200/contents/Files/Dehumidifiers/DH404E/DH404E_service_manual.pdf

Auto shut off comes on instantly


TURN UNIT OFF.. MAKE SURE DEHUMIDIFIER HAS NOT BEEN RUN FOR AT LEAST FIFTEEN MINUTES... TAKE BUCKET OUT... HOLD IN THE BUTTON THAT THE FLOAT IN THE BUCKET PUSHES ON.. THEN TURN ON THE UNIT.. DO NOT LET GO OF THE BUTTON EVEN A LITTLE BIT IF YOU DO YOU WILL HAVE TO WAIT FIFTEEN MINUTES AND TRY AGAIN.. IF UNIT WORKS THEN YOUR FLOAT IN THE BUCKET IS THE PROBLEM...

Only if ground wire had tuch something that was hot. Does your unit have a ground fault plug. If so reset plug. Sometimes thay go bad if you have had a storm in the area.

01% humidity


When you push the power button, the blower fan comes on. In a few minutes you should hear a second "click"--that is your compressor starting. Do you hear that second click?

The compressor is located in the rear bottom on the right side looking at the machine. After you press the start button and the blower fan comes on, bend over near the back of the unit and listen for the "click".

Model DH404e/gd40e


Hi,
It might be worth checking the intake screen to make sure it isn't clogged with fluff. Also, the on / off switching is often linked in with an ice-detector and a humidity sensor and if either of these have come loose from where they should be problems may arise.
One rather unlikely possibility, from your description of the fault, is that the microswitch for the "bucket full" detector is defective.

I have one machine with a defective humidity sensor and it will only run when I select "continuous" running as opposed to "60% humidity".

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing ability! If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further.
Cheers, D

Hi,

Two possibilities:
1. Continuous running and there is water coming out of the unit to the floor drain; the unit is just doing its job. It is probably just that there is that much humidity in the room;
2. the sensors are faulty or were bypassed during the repair - the sensor would be testing the water coming out, if there is water, the unit continues to work, if none, then it shuts off. Most would also have an overfill float switch, again which could be bypassed, that likewise control whether the unit will continue to run or stop.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
