Question about General Electric 50-pint Dehumidifier

Open Question

I have a GE ADEH50LNL1 it indicated that the filter needed to be cleaned so I shut it down and cleaned the filter. Upon replaceing the filter and starting it back up it will not continue to run for more than 2-3 minutes and I can't get the "continuous" button to engage. The humidity level button will switchlevels but will default back to 45% and then soon after the unit will shut down although all the indicator lights are still on.

Frozen filter


This can typically be caused by two items, low refrigeration gas or insufficient air flow. I would shut the unit down, unplug it and let it set for a day to thaw out. Clean all the air passages and replace the filter. Plug it in and turn it back on. If it continues to freeze you probably have either low refrigeration gas or a fan that is not opperating properly.

Where is the filter on this dehumidifier. Mod# ad75ust


To locate the filter: Shut unit off. Remove "bucket". You should find a "tab" at top of where bucket goes in middle front of unit. Pull down to remove tab of Filter. Clean thoroughly and dry Filter before re installation. Visually inspect the coils and condenser while filter is out ( a flashlight helps). If it looks slightly dusty or like covered in felt, then it would be wise to remove front and rear covers and give the coils and condenser a thorough cleaning.

Starts then stops completely showing this type of line - - - - where humidity should be. Cannot turn on or off.


The ---- lines you see, indicates that water collection bucket is not installed properly, as well as the air intake filter may need to be removed and cleaned.

When installing the bucket, be sure that it fit's "squarely" into the holder from top to bottom, so that it makes good contact with the bucket safety removal switch. When installed properly the bottom of the bucket will not tilt down at all.

To clean the filter. turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Remove the bucket and then pull the filter straight down and out. The filter can be vacuumed or if it's really dirty, wash with warm water and mild dish washing detergent. Rinse thoroughly, shake off any excess water and thoroughly dry, before reinstalling. Never operate the unit without the filter in place.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

2 yr. old. worked great. Then started shuting down self changing setting to low. shortly after, shuts down after 3 min. no water collection, unit is hot. Took apart. Cleaned everything inside, and filter....


Robinson, it really sounds like the compressor is overheating. This may be caused by a low refrigerant gas in the compressor. Or the compressor's oil has leaked down. But, if you took the unit apart to clean it, I would think that you would have noticed an oily residue. If it is the compressor (other than needing to be recharged) it would cost almost as much to replace it, as it would be to buy a new unit.
At least with a new one, you'd have a one year warranty and more, if you purchase an extended warranty.

Hope this helped you.

Dehumidifier keeps shutting itself off.


For some reason it is overheating and shutting itself off. There is a law that all electronics are supposed to have a point to where it automatically shuts off if it gets too hot from a malfunction or loose connection in the circuit board. It is to protect the consumer. You either need to take it to a tech or get rid of it. Get a new one.
