Question about Maytag M7DH45B2A Dehumidifier
Howdy. We have one of these M7DH45B2A and like it fine (we almost never have water on the basement floor anymore) but tonight it started acting up. The green status light is flashing and it's going "beep....beep....beep." We emptied tank, wiggled the float switch, and tried different outlets but the only change in behavior is, if we tilt the unit this way/that way, the beeping and flashing changes frequnecy. Help please? TIA

The fall may have knocked out some wiring -- open the unit (remove back panel, then remove front by taking out screws inside) and see if any of the cables to the front panel or control board came out.

Dehumidifiers and how they work
Heat pump dehumidifiers
Dehumidifiers use a heat pump (similar to an air conditioner's heat pump) or chemical adsorbents to remove moisture from the air without cooling the air.
A heat pump dehumidifier uses a fan to draw indoor air over a heat exchange coil. The coil is almost freezing. The water in the air condenses on the coil and is drained. A second heat exchange coil reheats the air, which the dehumidifier exhausts into the room.
A heat pump dehumidifier dumps heat lost from the compressor and fan motors into the air. It returns to the indoor air the heat generated by the dehumidifier turning water vapour to liquid. I got this off the internet
