When turn off. makes a humming sound. compressor seems to be running.


Have same issue with 3 year old Frigidaire dehumidifier purchased in 2012. Must unplug to stop compressor running with power switch turned off. Unit gets hot and smells. Unplugging creates arcs at outlet since unit is pulling a lot of power. Plugging back in after some hours will make it appear to run normally and again remove moisture but it will not shut off when the fan goes off (humidistat bad?) and the set-point is reached. Cannot leave plugged in due to safetty/fire/overheating concern. Have not found answer on this forum or any other so far.

I have a DH504EL. Should the fan run constantly? It hums, so I know the motor is running, but the fan isn't moving>


if the fan is simply humming but not turning over take the back cover off and make sure the blower piece is free turning. i used to have a dehumidifier(goldstar similar model long sold though) it had a bad thermal fuse in the fan motor but compressor worked perfect. bolt is i think 10mm and i had to peel the tape off of the motor windings to get at the fuse. soldered new one in(p/o gave me new fuse and 10 bucks to get it out of his hair what a deal:) ) and retaped the windings. also the felt bearings may be loose but i just lubed the front and back bearing housings well with syn-lube(valvoline for brakes) and reassembled. baby oil works wonders so does vasoline but due to heat that trick does not last long before making a racket and leaves a **** on the assemblies underneath(mess) so try the high temp lube or any moly based brake lube

I have always set my M7DH45B2A at 60 percent (it's in the basement). Lately it runs all the time and the humidity does not go below 65 percent. It seems "stuck" there even if I lower my...


There are 5 basic, but solvable reasons 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%.

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 - 65 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. 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 the above helped you. Please let me know and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have H. Bay model HB40F dehumidifier. It does not seem to ever actually start the compressor. There is a plastic box on the side of the compressor that contains a couple of coily looking things. It...


It is probably the start device(the coil looking things), as long as you don't hear the compressor humming. A loud hum is a lock compressor and the cost would be far greater than a new unit.

Can you please help me find out what makes my fan motor slowly stops running after about 30 minutes. The unit runs fine but after about 30 minutes the motor sounds like it slowing down and wants to trip....


mcdevito75 here, It could be the capacitor if you can replace with same size do so. The Armature or communtator in the motor could be shorting also, do the capacitor the change the motor.

Getting humidity to 30 percent


Hi,
A refrigeration type dehumidifier will not go much below 40%, just can't get the water to condensate below that at normal temperatures...
You will need to use a desiccant type unit to go to 30%..

Kenmore dehumidifier M/N 580.53650200 only runs for about 1 minute, then stops. Dehumidifying level is set to minimum (40) and it's damp in the basement so I know the air is not too dry. The fan works, the...


Well to knowledge the problem 40 percent is dry. means your basement is great. humidity should be 30/50 percent 50 grows mold. also if it runs for a min the auot shut off is activating. check this first.

Have an LG dehimidifier which seems to have stop working


Could be a failed compressor start relay. They are replaceable. Get one at an appliance parts store for your model or a generic one. Make sure you are unplugged before changing.

There is an internal fuse. Take off the outer plastic casing. The fuse is on the bottom of the board on the upper right of the unit. It's a 12 amp fuse. I had the same problem and found the fuse blown.

Dehumidifer - Working??? Not Sure.


if you can verify that the compressor is still active (is there a noticeable hum or buzz and / or do the room lights slightly dim during power on?) then the most likely problem is a loss of freon. if the compressor never turns on, then a faulty humidistat is likely...an electrician can run a test of this by "jumpering it out" to force on the compressor motor.
