My dehumidier blows very hot air while working. Makes it hotter than it was before starting. Like a furnace.

My dehumidier pulls out water from the air like it should but blows very hot air while working. Like a furnace. How do I fix this?

    When I first bought it the air that it blew out was only slightly warm not it is hot enough you can't hold your hand in front of it with out getting burned. It's that hot. It never used to do this. Does it need freon charged?

    Hi - "Hot" is a relative term. But if you know that the discharge air is much warmer than it was before - especially if it can burn your skin - then something is very wrong. I am assuming you are cleaning the filter on front regularly. A low refrigerant charge could be causing the high discharge temperature. You should have it looked at for possible repair.

It is normal for a dehumidifier to discharge warm air. A dehumidifier is really an air conditioner - a fan blows humid room air across a cold fin coil that causes the moisture to condense on it and drip into a container - thus cooling AND dehumidifying the air. The cool air is blown over the warm coil and discharged out the back. A dehumidifier WILL normally increase the temperature of the room it is in.
You can do the same thing with sitting an A/C unit on a stool in a room. Room air will be drawn in, cold air will come out the front, hot air out the back and water will drip on the floor. And, the room will get hotter, due to what is called "heat of compression" even though you're running an A/C unit.

I have a danby dehumidifier...when I turn it on the fan goes on, but the actual dehumidier does not...the light about the first button does not light up. What Can i do?


It's probably in the wrong mode. This could be from a number of causes including you have not emptied the water chamber.

My dehumidier is not pulling any water into the bucket. Runs fine. About 1 year old.


If the unit is not pulling water into the bucket its probably not that humid in that area anymore. If it aint broke dont fix it.

My dehumidifer collect water but the fan blows hot her so it makes the room hotter


This may be caused by running the unit in continuous mode, rather than timed mode. The heat is generally is generated when the defrost mode cycles on, to defrost the cooling coils. This happens more frequently, if the air space around the unit is obstructed or it's operating in a temperature range of 40 to 60 F. Cleaning the air intake filter at least once a week, can help solve this problem, too.

Maintain a minimum of 12" free air space around all sides of the dehumidifier. Use a timed mode rather than a continuous mode. Make sure the room is within the proper operating temperature range and clean the air intake filter weekly.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Hi,
The dehumidifier does not heat or cool, but the compressor running will produce some heat and it can make a room hotter...

The dehumidifier is blow cold air


Is it collecting water? The air coming out the back top half should be cool/warm. It will be a little warmer at the bottom near the compressor.

Doesnt take any water out


Most dehumidiers have a "Frost Guard" thermal protector on the condensor coil. This protector will turn the compressor off should the temperature fall below 65 degrees in the basement. The condensor fan will still continue to run anticipating the restart of the compressor.
Hence, 3 things could be wrong.
1. air temp.of basement is too cold
2. Frost guard could be faulty
3. Freon leak in condensor coil.
Assuring that basement temp. is above 65 degrees is about all you can do unless you have it checked out by a technician.

Dehumidier Delonghi DH400P not removing any water from the air


Only thing I can tell you to do is to make sure that the evaporator in the back is ice and cold. If the evaporator is not cold the unit will never remove moisture from the air. And if that is the case you have a sealed system problem. The unit may have a leak so there is no gas in it. The compressor may not be working or the humidstat my not be working properly. So check those thigs out or if its under warrenty call for service.
