Question about Kenmore 54701 Dehumidifier
WHILE RUNNING NORMALLY IN A 3 YEAR OLD MILDLY MOIST BASEMENT , THE UNIT WILL START LEAKING WATER FROM THE SIDE OF THE UNIT OPPOSITE OF WHERE THE ' L ' SHAPED CONTINUOUS GARDENHOSE CONNECTION IS . THE TOP OF THE UNIT FEELS VERY COLD [ ALMOST FROZEN? ] AND WARMER THAN USUAL ON THE SIDES. IF I TURN IT OFF FOR ABOUT 6 HOURS AND TURN IT ON AGAIN IT WORKS OK FOR ABOUT 5 DAYS AND DOES THE SAME THING AGAIN. I HAVE IT SET AT 55% CONTINUOUS. IT IS 6 MONTHS OLD . ANY SUGGESTIONS ARE APPRECIATED , THANKS ! JERRY
It sounds like your unit is freezing up. Let it set for a day then set to run on the 3 hr cycle. Also rase the % of humidity to 60 or 65, and if it starts working lower the % setting in a few days by 5% increments until you get to the setting you want. Also read your owners manual troubleshooting section lots of good tips.
