    I have a same problem. I opened up the unit but don't see any frost on the coils. What else could be wrong?

  • lenahbo Jul 14, 2008

    The unit runs, but no water accumulates. It seems as if the fan is running but nothing else. The room temp is above 65, and there is no frost appearing on the coils. At least that would mean the unit is working but too cold. It runs, but I get nothing.

Most dehumidifiers have a "Frost Guard" mounted on the condensor coil. If frost accumulates on the condensor coil the frost guard turns the compressor off until the frost melts, then comes back on again. For the dehumidifier to work properly, the surrounding (ambient), temperature must be higher than 65 degress. This temperature allows the moisture in the air to condense on the coils and drip into the reservoir without freezing up on the condensor coil. Also, if the humidity is too low, (below 45%), the same condition will occur. So it will help to keep the parameters in mind when you have this issue.

Thank you for your allowing me to advise you on this issue.

I bought the FriedrichD50. It worked fine in 2 weeks with the built in pump. After I disconnected the drainage by using the bucket, no water comes out. Does it make sense the machine runs 2 days straight...


Yes, it does make sense, depending on what humidity extraction level you have it set on. Set to high, it will will remove little to low condensation/humidity. Set it to 35% or if you have an analog model (no LED screen) set the humidity extraction knob on Maximum Also, be sure that the air intake filter is clean.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Haier 45-pint dehumidifier unit cannot be turned on. It has been running fine last few days.


The first thing that comes to mind, is have you emptied the water collection bucket recently? If so, be sure that the bucket was properly reinstalled and is making contact with the bucket safety removal switch.

If you haven't emptied the bucket in the past few days, it may simply be full and will not start until it's emptied.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I just purchased this product and after running for 3 hours there is no water in the bucket. Why?


The unit often has cavities that need to fill before it goes into the bucket... also your humidity may not be that high...so you may not be getting much water out of the air...

Attached a pump to drain collected water. The


the water should still collect into the tank. the dehumidifier had a float switch that shut the unit off when the tank is full. In turn it should have a second switch, probably a float switch that turns the pump on and off so that the pump doesnt continue to run when there is no moisture in the tank
