Question about Soleus CFM-40 Dehumidifier

Open Question

How do I take the back off of a Soleus CFM-40 Dehumidifier?

I got the bottom and top set of screws off, but there's a middle set that I can't figure out how to unscrew. They're screws I've never seen before and none of the screwdrivers I have work.

SOURCE: No water in bucket

if you can verify that the compressor motor is actually turning, then the problem is either a freon leak or a worn out compressor. if it is not turning, then the problem is either a damaged motor or motor is not getting voltage--need testing with meter to determine why. cheaper in long run to buy a new unit if bad compressor or motor or freon fill, but a fill may be only temporary if leak persists.

Check to see if the styrofoam is still in the lever of the shut off arm. It's atop the water reservoir. If there is nothing there it will not float causing the arm not to shut off.

Hi,

If everything you are saying is true then refrigeration system has lost the freon charge..

for the charge to be lost there must be a leak also...

Till you find the leak and recharge the unit it will cost more then a new one...

My soleus dehumidifier keeps tripping my fuses on my powerstrip so we have to keep resetting it. Why?


If it is a GFI protected powerstrip then you likely have a ground fault issue, otherwise the powerstrip may be overloaded (unit should pull around 5 amps on startup) or faulty.

The drawer is empty of water but the signal says 'full'. Is there a broken part? Thank you, Eileen


No, probably not. Either the float valve in the top of the bucket (drawer) is stuck in the 'UP' position or the bucket wasn't installed properly.

For the stuck float valve. Remove the bucket and look in the right or left corner of the bucket for the float valve. If it's stuck in the 'UP' position, jiggle the handle to make it return to the 'DOWN' position.

When reinstalling the bucket into it's holder (whether it had a float valve or not), be sure that it fits "squarely" from top to bottom into the holder. It should not tilt down at the bottom. The bucket must make firm contact with the bucket safety removal switch inside the holder.

Hope this helps you to troubles shoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

This dehumidifier continues to run after it is full, spilling water out of the full tank. How can I fix this?


Diane, the float valve in the left top of the bucket (it's styrofoam) is stuck and can't shut the unit off when the bucket is full. To help you solve this, I am providing a link to your Owners Manual that will help you with this problem You can download and print the manual for future reference Be sure to turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit, before attempting to solve this problem.

Looks like 1 yr warranty so if a coolant system problem and more than 1 yr old, not worth repairing, but try:
