Question about Kenmore 54701 Dehumidifier
I have a Model 54701 purchased about 2 years ago. The fan doesn't operate at the High setting (the unit is on however). The fan works at the Low setting but the unit is not collecting any water. Q1?: Should I shoot this horse and try another or is there a warranty issue worth exploring? Q2: Assuming I buy a new one, what's good (and is reliable!) I saw some good reviews on the Comfort-Aire, but one reviewer implied it's the same as the Kenmore line (i.e., problem prone). I als saw good reviews on the Frigidaire FDL60P1. Thanks!
Save the old one for parts if you get the same new one but I def. don't reccomend buying this unit again. The reviews are bad. The fan is not covered under the warranty except first year or extented warranty. I spoke with Kenmore & Sears about this to see if coverd under 5 yr. Only compressor,tubing & refrigeration system(see inside of front cover for warranty info.)
Sound more like a sensor/circuit board problem to me since fan is turning. I think the signal determins which setting fan needs via sensor assembly to run. I could be wrong. Justa thought.
Can you def. hear the compressor come on. You can look through grill to see fan spin & the compressor makes a clank/clunking noise/ The fan & compressor should turn same time. Good luck! If you got any info. on my fan problem & you have update or fixed your problem I ccould use some help. Check post for my problem.. Thanks! panfan1
