Question about Crosley 40-pint Dehumidifier
I have a Crosley dehumidifier that sits on a shelf in a wall. The back side of the unit (air intake side) is open to my utility room that is completely enclosed. The front side of the unit faces my finished basement. I have a drain hose hooked up to the back. Lately (over the last 2-3 months) I'm noticing that the drip pan has alot of dust and the coils don't seem to get cold anymore. Is it just because the intake room is really that dry and maybe I should install some ventalation so air from the finished portion of the basement flow in or has the unit just stopped working?
If you can verify that the compressor is still active (is there a noticeable hum or buzz and / or do the room lights slightly dim during power on?) then the most likely problem is a loss of freon. if the compressor never turns on, then a faulty humidistat is likely...an electrician can run a test of this by "jumpering it out" to force on the compressor motor.
