Question about DeLonghi Dehumidifiers
At irregular intervals the fan just stops turning followed by a burning smell and it shuts down. It has done this a few times and has worked for weeks between incidents. I have taken it apart and cleaned everything I could but it still happens. Is there a part I can order and perhaps change myself? I appreciate your help with this.
SOURCE: 2 yr. old. worked great.
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.
