'coil' (a finned metal part that needs air to flow across its surface) may be filled
with dust and obstructions, so no air can move...then no water. There is a
blower motor that must move the air. If it is seized up and not blowing
air...very little or no water. The compressor creates condensation from
air moving across the coil (like the moisture than forms on an ice filled
glass on a humid day) to extract the water from the air. If it's not
working then no water. So, if there is air blowing out of the dehumidifier the blower is working. If the air is room temp the compressor is not
working. If it's real hot air, and the humidifier keeps cycling on and
off quickly, the coil is dirty. Those are the 3 things that need to be
