Delonghi dehumidifier overflows


these humidifiers are total junk. The sensors are cheap and get stuck or broken so easily. for your problem tho, you can either find the sensor by taking off the cover and use your hands to break free any stuff causing it to get stuck or you can drill a hole in the water tank and insert some fish tank tubing and let the water drain out as it collects.

I have a delonghi des 14 dehumidifier. Usually it goes into pause mode for 3 mins when you first turn it on with the yellow light on and then starts dehumidifieing.It now stays in the pause mode forever...


Just fixed this problem with my DES14. Its a fault with the circuit board inside the machine and is very easy to fix, even for a novice. Here is how to do it:

1) Open up the machine by removing the screws in the case. (Make sure it is unplugged!)

2) Locate the circuit board on the side of the unit.

3) At this point you have two options. If you want a unit with full functionality you need to buy a replacement circuit board. I found one on MasterSpares (http://www.mastersparesonline.com/product/index/10147) It costs about 30 pounds. Simply remove the old board and replace it.

4) If you want a working unit for no extra cost (but without the functionality of the humidistat) then remove the rectangular white connector from the circuit board which has red,blue,white and yellow wires entering it. Add an extra wire between the central white wire and the red wire that is adjacent to the yellow. (see photo).

5) Re-assemble the unit. If you have opted for the free option the unit will work when you plug it in and switch it on but will no longer cut in and out with different humidities (or have the annoying warm up period). Thankfully the water overflow cut-out will still work.

Hope it works for you! Feel free to ask if you are confused!

My dehumidifier as stopped extracting water and has started icing up


There are 4 basic, yet solvable reasons for what you have described.

1. 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.

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

3. 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.

4. 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.

I hope this helps you troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

DE' Longhi Dehumidifier - Model: DH=25 - Water does not empty into bucket.


If you're saying the dehumidifier is not extracting moisture from the air?

There are 5 basic, yet solvable reason for this. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2..

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If yours is a manual unit, turn
the control 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.

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.

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

Unit runs (fan at least). No water in bucket. Coils are room temp. No indicator lights lit. Just dark.

Den 500p dehumidifier fan works but compressor does no activate


Phil, it may simply be a case that you have the humidity extraction level set to high. Try lowering it to 32 - 35%. If your unit is not equipped with an LED Screen, set the manual control to Maximum.

Also, remove and check the air intake filter, to see if it needs cleaning. And maintain at least a minimum of 12 - 18" of clear air space around the entire unit, while in operation.

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

We need to have the condenser repaired or replaced. No water collects when machine is turned on. Where can I find a qualified repair man in Cumming,GA?


Before you have it repaired, there are several things you can troubleshoot and solve yourself, that won't require any repairs.

1. The humidity extraction level may be set to High. Lower it to 32 - 35%.

2. The air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, unplug it before removing and cleaning the
filter. If you wash the filer, it must be thoroughly dry, before reinstalling it.

3. Obstructed air flow. To function properly, there must be a minimum of 12" clear air space around
the entire unit.
.
4. The cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Remove the front cover and filter to access
and clean the coils with warm water and dish washing liquid. Rinse , thoroughly dry and coat
coils with a light caating of WD40.

5. The air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees F. Most dehumidifiers don't function
function well in that temperature range. Especially in a basement application. The ambient air
temperature at floor level is colder than at chest level. Set the the unit on a sturdy table, counter
top, etc, that can handle the weight of the unit & a full tank of water.

Conduct an in-home test, to check humidity extraction: Place the unit in your bathroom, plug it in and set the humidity extraction level at 32 - 35%. Turn the shower ON hot enough to generate steam. Close any window(s) in the bathroom and Do Not turn the exhaust fan ON. Close the door as you exit the room and wait 15 - 20 minutes before returning. After the time has elapsed, open the bathroom door, turn the shower OFF and allow the unit to run 5 more minutes. Then check the water collection bucket for any signs of water. If you see any, the unit is working as it should and one of more of the above solutions took care of the problem.

If the unit showed no signs of humidity collection (water) in the bucket and you want to have it repaired. The closest Delongi Authorized Service Center(s) to you are in Florida (please see the following link) http://www.delonghiusa.com/index.php?service

I hope this helped you further troubleshoot and solve the problem without having to make a repair. Please let me know. Thanks.

De Longhi DH250R AriaDry Combi Dehumidifier


Check your water tank. On the inside is a lever and a slot. Wiggle it till light goes off. Should work after that.
