Unscrew the front plastic panel. Clean the air filter with warm water and dry for 10 minutes. Take a used tooth brush and a mug with water. Dip the brush in water and then clean the coil gently. After complete the full area of the coil. wait for 5 minutes, and then blow it with blower. It may increase the cooling effect by 40 to 60%. Thanks.

Are the brushes worn down too far? As they wear the springs tension gets weaker. The brushes can also get stuck inside the channel they slide in. Could also be a buildup of dust etc inside and around the internal fan or commutator, etc.

Dusting eletronics and appliances

Ignoring dust build up is one of the greatest contributors to over heating and eventual breakdown of electronics and appliances. Keep your items lasting longer by following these few hints.

Electronics: Computers, Keyboards, TV's, VCR - DVD- CD players, Radios,
Air Purifiers.....Can be easily dusted with air-cans, little micro-
dusters, vacuums, and believe it or not even with used dryer sheets.
Always have units turned off and unplugged before dusting.
If you are comfortable with removing casings you will be able to remove more dust.
DO NOT use wet cleaners, soaps, water, as it will short out your electronics. Exception is the use of Is-propyl Alcohol which you can dip q-tips into and clean in the little tight spots if necessary as it evaporates quickly.
Especially useful on heads in players.

Appliances: Dryers, Refrigerator, Freezers, Ranges,
all require "space and breathing room."

Dryers are one of the leading factors in house-fires because of the build up of lint. At least once a year (more with a big family) unplug dryer and do a deep clean.
You want to focus getting lint out from behind, inside the dryer, and duct.

Refrigerators and freezers you want to pull away from wall & get the dust vacuumed
off the coils. Though not popular practice with many, it is wise to try and not store
a bunch of clutter on top of these appliances. Make sure to mop the floor before
pushing back into it's space.

Ranges though not as sensitive to dust still should be deep cleaned for food particles and grease buildup. Pull the drawer out from bottom and clean out the space of crumbs. Grease buildup on range hood lights can cause early blowouts.
Make sure bulb is cool to the touch before attempting to clean to avoid breakage and finger burns.

This is not meant to be an exhaustive walk through, but only to serve as a spring cleaning reminder that awareness and a little cleaning can save on repair bills and replacements.

How do I fix leaking dehumidifier?

units that leak some times are a total loss but not allways , sometimes its just not being used on level surface (water seeks level allways) , there are lots of ports inside that need to be kept clean for all the units water to drain out , look inside with a flashlight to see if any buildup is obvious that might be cleaned off ? if not a last effort is to remove cover to see 1st hand what cause is(remove power plug 1st) , rust /mold/dust are all common things to find inside that affect units operation

Seal closet with caulk or mastic or foam.including top, sides, platform and around base of unit. If base is not sealed it can pull from outside of closet through door. If base is sealed but top and sides of closet are not then return air can pull from inside closet from attic or inside walls. Either will turn your door casing into a filter.

Freezer compressor gets hot

Check behind and underneath for dust buildup, sounds like your compressor needs cleaned on the outside, the dust is causing it to overheat and retain condensation, hence the ice buildup. Easy thing to check, good luck.

The 3 filters were very dirty - so i cleaned them . Is the something inside the unit that also needs cleaning??

Hello, it is also a good idea to check out the blower compartment for dust and vacuum if needed. If large amounts of dust build up on the blower wheel it can cause the unit to trip on the high limit switch due to low airflow.

Most of these devices have photoelectric sensors build-in, which tells the unit whether there is too much paper dust on the sensors, When there is too much paper dust covering the sensor, the device will report to the User that there is too much paper dust on the sensor, and the device will not function properly, due to the build up of paper dust.

Get a can of compressed air and gently spray inside the device, to remove the build up of paper dust,

System shutdown

Systems that shut down after being powered on can point to an over heating of the CPU. Other factors come into play with overheating. Too much dust build-up on & under the CPU fan blades. Dust builds up in-between the heatsink fins (Thus the CPU fan can not cool the CPU chip.)
The CPU fan may be running too slow. When the PC system shuts down it’s saving you from hurting the system. You did not list the model number of you're system. Check you're system & clean the mentioned parts. Use canned air & a dry clean small paint brush to help remove possible dust buildup blow the dust away with the canned air.

Check for dust buildup on both hot & cold coils, including any filters. Clean as required. Power washing can be used, provided water is kept away from the fan motor & controls. Allow to dry thoroughly before using. Vacuum cleaning is also acceptable. Note than on some units, the hot coil will have dirt buildup on the inside of the coil.

What is the best physical configuation exhaust/drainage to use with dehumidifier mode to avoid room temperature increase? There are 2 drainage outlets on this model top and bottom. However the user manual doesn't mention about the top one. In AC mode, if I don't connect any drain hose, the unit fills up fast and stop. When the exhaust vents are connected outside required for AC mode only, I cannot use the bottom drainage hose because I have no drain nearby. Therefore I use the top drainage and add a bucket beside the unit. This setup works fine for hours in AC mode without intercuption and the bucket fills up with water fast. However the rooms gets too cold below 20C/68F while still quite humid +60%. But if I switch to dehumidifer mode with the same setup, the unit only runs for a few minutes, then stop completely for another 5 minutes, then turn into FAN mode which blows very humid air for another while and then turns the compresssor back ON for another 5 min. and the loop start over. After hours of operation, the bucket nearly has any water and the room humidity is the same if not worst. I thought the compressor was defective so I tried the dehumidifer mode without the exhausts vents connected outside and the bottom drainage hose as suggested in the user manual. This setup works continuously but does not remove much humidity vs. the amount of heats it generates. The unit has AUTO Mode which switch between AC and dehumidifier mode. So there must be a way to keep the same physical installation exhaust and drainage for both these mode, is there? Thanks
