Question about Amana DK40 Dehumidifier
Unit does run, and fan turns on, compressor IS humming away, but coils don't get cold, and no water is produced? Unit is only 3 yrs old or so, any ideas?
Sounds like the unit needs re-gassing and checking for leaks. It is not unusual for a 3-year old unit to require this - especially dehumidifiers as they are often not used all year round, and the seals that stop the gas from leaking are prone to settling and drying out when not in use. This is not a procedure that you are permitted to carry out yourself, just call a local HVAC/Fridge repairer and see what they quote - the job itself is simple enough depending on the leaks and if anything needs replacing, but the gas itself is getting costly. Make sure they do a leak test first. If not topped up with gas then don't run the compressor - the lubricant that protects the compressor is mixed in with the refrigerant gas and will dry out quickly if the gas has leaked. Hope this helps - please ask for more info if you need it :)
