Old post, but in case someone stumbles in here like i did, I need to point out that if an A/C needs to be recharged, then there has to be a leak somewhere, there is no use on recharging unless you find the place where is leaking.

It needs a freon re-charge, may be cheaper to get a new one

Unit no longer removes water/humidity from air. The filter had been extremly clogged up (now clean) but is fan suppossed to move when it's running ? If so - is it electric or belt driven ? Is...


Well, we know the filter was playing a role in it.. Good job on cleaning that. Depending on where you have the humidity extraction level set, the fan could run all the time (It's direct drive. No belt). I suspect if you lower the humidity extraction level to 35%, you will see/hear water collecting in the bucket after about 30 minutes to an hour of operation.

Also, maintain at least 18" of clear air space around the entire unit.

In addition, if you're using this in a basement Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees. dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications . Raising the unit up off the floor, onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this problem.

Hope this helped you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know.

I plug in the dehumidifier everything sounds as though it is running perfectly but I can let it run for a day and I did not get any water in the tank can you make a suggestion thank you


There are 5 basic, but solvable reason for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1& 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.
2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder
level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know.

The motor runs but no water collects in the bucket. olfi've had it running for hours.. please help. it's only 13 mod p


mempandora, the humidity level that you set on the unit may be to high. In which case the unit will only maintain that level, rather than remove any moisture/humidity. Lower the setting to 35% or minimal, if your unit does not have an LED display. In addition, the air intake filter probably needs cleaning and the coolant coils need to be wiped down and cleaned. The latter is the only part that will require some partial dismantling of the dehumidifier's cabinet. Also, it is imperative, to maintain a minimum of 12" clear air space all around the unit. And finally, the ambient air temperature at floor level may be affecting the operation. If the temperature is between 40 & 60 degrees F, the unit struggles to sense humidity. This is particularly true in a basement. As, the air at the floor is colder than the air temperature.

I hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.
