Some water will not produce mist unless something is added to increase mineral content. Your instructions should mention this

My dehumidifier does not collect any water the motor is running however no evidence that it is picking up any water.


Could be 1 of 2 things. 1st, the compressor is bad and not building pressure or the system has no Freon in it. If the compressor is bad then throw it out and get another one, not worth fixing. If low on Freon you will need to buy line taps, the Freon used in unit and will need a set of ac gauges and a vacuum pump. By the time you buy the tools needed to fix it would be cheaper to buy another one unless you already own the tools. A dehumidifier is nothing more than a air conditioner that works backwards like a heat pump.

My Humidifier is 2 years old. It worked fine and now there is an "EC" code on panel


Unit malfunction. Dehumidifiers are designed to function within specific temperate ranges, usually between 50 and 80 degrees. Make sure that the ambient temperature of the room is within the range of your dehumidifier. Try not to run it continuously.

I have a sunbeam 1387 warm mist humidifier. I need to know how to clean scale from the filter. It looks like it can be taken apart. Can it?


Actually, Carol, it shouldn't be necessary to take the unit apart. Mix a 50/50 solution of White Distilled Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank). Pour the solution in and allow it to sit overnight. Then empty the solution and fill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water. Turn the unit ON and allow it to run for 1 hour. Then empty any remaining Distilled Water. Doing all the aforementioned, should have not only cleaned the filter, but also the unit itself. If you use Bottled Distilled Water in the future, rater than tap water, the filter and the plumbing of the unit will stay clean longer and will require less maintenance.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have a DH305 it turns on but does not draw any water out of the air. I took the back off and noticed that the fan is not moving. should it be?


The fan, generally only operates when the compressor is running and then for a short period there after. A lot of this depends on which humidity extraction level the humidifier is set on. If it's set high (50%+), it's not going to do much extraction at all. However, if it's set on 32-35%, it's really going to run and extract humidity/moisture. In the case of your unit, which has a mechanical control, rather than electronic control , The control knob should be set on Maximum.

In addition, if you haven't checked and or cleaned the air intake filter recently, please do so. A dirty or clogged air filter will affect the operation of the dehumidifier. Also, place of the unit is very improtant. You must maintain a minimum of 12" clear air space around the entire unit. And be sure to keep it away from heat generating appliances.

In you want to do an in home test to see if it's work properly. Do the following:

1. Place the unit in the bathroom, plug it in, turn it ON and set the humidity extraction level at Maximum.

2. Turn the shower on hot enough to generate steam. Close the window(s) in the bathroom and Do Not turn on the exhaust fan As you exit the bathroom close the door.

3. Wait 15 - 20 minutes before returning to the bathroom and opening the door. Turn the shower OFF and allow the dehumidifier to run an additional 10 minutes. Then check the bucket for any signs of water. If you find some, the unit is working as it should. If you don't find any water, the humidity sensor may have failed or the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas.

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

Unit runs but doesn't collect water and there is a lot of water in the basement. Have had dehumidifier for two weeks and was working well before.


Keep in mind, that a dehumidifier only draws humidity from the air, if the level of humidity is higher than what the controls are set on. For instance, if you have the dehumidifier set on 65 to 70%, that's a high level of humidity to maintain in a house. If you have it set for 35 or 45%, that's a low level of humidity to maintain in a house. Which, generally is what you want to maintain in the hot, humid summer months. Also, it's not uncommon on some dehumidifiers for the fan to almost run constantly. It's designed to keep the air moving, in a effort to detect when the humidity level rises.

Also, a dirty air intake filter makes the unit strain to keep up and can't take in moisture as it should. So, if you haven't cleaned the filter no is the time to check and clean it. And while your at it, clean the cooling coils too. Since it sounds like this unit has been working hard for 2 weeks.

The easiest and best way to test a dehumidifier at home, to see if it's working properly. Is to place it in the bathroom and turn the shower ON and don't operate the bathroom's exhaust fan. Set the humidity level low (45%), turn the unit ON and close the door when you leave. Wait 15 to 25 minutes and check the water collection bucket. If there's water in it, it's working as it should.

For more information on the proper operation of a dehumidifier, go to the Tips section of Fixya and look up "Taking the confusion out operating a dehumidifier".

Hope all this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

White powder coming from dehumidifer.


Commercially available cool mist humidifiers sonicate water in order to create a fine mist. In other words, intense vibration liberates millions of tiny droplets of water from the reservoir. This water contains all of the salts of the original tap water. Consequently, over time, you will begin noticing that a fine white powder covers EVERYTHING in the room. This is the same stuff that is trapped in the reservoir of a warm mist humidifier.
its harmful but very annoying !

FULL LIGHT FLASHES


An automatic overflow switch and Container “Full” indicator light are provided to turn the
dehumidifier off before the container overflows. When the indicator light on the control panel
glows, the water container must be emptied. If the light remains on and the dehumidifier does
not begin to operate make sure the float is attached to the water container.


When the condensate water container is full, the indicator lights up.
1. Turn the power off before removing container. Wait 3 minutes for
any remaining water to drain into the condensate container.
2. Tilt the container forward then lift carefully by the handle.
3. Empty and gently re-insert the container.
Important:This water is not suitable for drinking.

Please rate and god bless:)
