SOURCE: dehumidifier freezing up, is it the de-icer control? can it be replaced ?

Could be the tempurature of the room you have it in. Make sure it is not operating in a room below 65 degrees F or 18 C

SOURCE: not working

Hate to tell you, but it may be a goner. Many units have a rectangular air filter that may be clogged, but I would still expect to see some moisture removal. Without exact model I'll have to be general,.... remove cover (front or back, depends on model) to see cooling coils. If the compressor is running, these coils should be wet or may have a light frost on them for a time. Not = refrigerant leak. (not economical to repair) If you see one small area of ice,... it's also a goner. If the compressor does not run you could have a bad compressor, a bad defrost control, or a bad control / humidistat. Other than the filter or possibly a fan motor, these unit are rarely economical to repair.

Take cover off. First check the fuse on the circuit board. If it's blown replace it. That should get the motor running, the motor might be or is going out. If the motor is bad you'll have to replace the motor. If the fuse is good and the motor is good, unhook the wires on circuit board that go to the humidity control switch. If the unit comes on with the humidity control switch unhooked, you'll have to replace the humidity control switch. Sears has them for about $11.50. Hope this helps.

Runs for a few minutes then shuts off, easy fix. First, remove water catcher and slide filter out and clean it. Then find the two screws that hold on the front panel remove front panel. Make sure the unit is un-plugged. The humidity control dial has two wires connected to it. clip the inner wire. This will keep the unit on full. You could replace the humidity control dial, but why bother?

My DH4010E the compressor runs but the fan does not.


Put your hand on the fan, if its hot you may have to replace it
Check the amp draw too.
Also have your parts center to check the capacitor
Be care ful the mcapacitor can have elect after removal
