Amcor tc100 started to leak on the floor but is still working

I have had my Amcor tc 100 for about a year and found it was great for removing the condensation from my bathroom after baths and showers.
It still removes the moisture and collects it in the tank, but it has started to leak on to the floor .I have checked the tank and there is no splits or cracks in the tank.
What would be causing this to happen, and what can i do to sort this problem??? PLEASE

Ive had same issue with this machine. i opened it up and cleaned the plastic channels leading into the tank. Dust can collect and block these channels, diverting the water onto the floor. This cleared that problem, but now the fan is not working, so im hunting for one going cheap...?

Amcor Dehumidifer TC120 - Circuit Board Required


It is not your relay. Mine did the same and the problem is the resistor that drive it goes short so the relay clatters as the circuit is trying to control it. The actual fault is the 78p153sp driver. You can change the transistor, a pnp will do the trick but the driver is dead. I'm currently looking for this IC and they're hard to find, cheap Chinese tat. So instead I'll likely fit a temp sensor that detects when the cooling coils reach about 4deg and switch the fridge off because shorting the relay will just cause the cooling to stay on and you'll get ice, it needs to cool, collect moisture, switch off, warm up and dump the moisture...crude but it works. This unit is worth saving.

Kenmore 54351 Dehumidifier is leaking -- water isn't going into the tray, but seems to be leaking out into the floor.


Mine is doing the same thing. The bucket is dry and the floor is flooded, so it is not an inability to condense, and it is not that the bucket has overflowed, and the bucket does not have a leak. It had been working great and then this suddenly started happening, it's as if the water is not flowing along the proper route and instead is gathering behind the bucket.

Hello I have an Amcor dehumidifier (at least 7 years old). It seems to be really struggling and is a lot less effective than it used to be. I don't have any means for cleaning it because the...


Sean, 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%. If you have an analog unit,
turn the humidity extraction knob to Maximum.

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. As the unit is 8 years old and may to have have routine maintenance performed on it, on a regular basis.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Tubing to drain the water into the container for the Amcor TC 120


take a sample piece of tubing to a home improvement,hardware,or appliance parts store to match it up.

No water collecting, unit running


the collector base under the tubes just collects water and drips it through a hole into the water bucket. there must be a loose hose(if it has one) or the base collector or bucket has a crack, as they usually are plastic. also if the unit is sitting on a very uneven floor this will happen

Where, in the UK, can I obtain Amcor replacement parts?


the thermal break is there for a reason, the motor has overheated, if this was due to a towel or other item covering the unit great remove the the obstruction and replace the thermal break. however the major cause is that the bearings have dried up on the motor and it has started to seize, which means replacement.
