Question about Dehumidifiers
Westinghouse Dehumidifier frost on coils
Posted by Anonymous on
MIKE - I have the same problem...previously, there was NEVER any frost, and the unit worked just fine. Now, all of a sudden in the last week, frost has been forming...water no longer traverses thru the tube into the sink...and the unit is basically useless/
I think when the original person said "frost", they meant ICE!

I have the same problem under 5 year warranty. The Authorized May Tag Dealer (Stan & Pauls), advised that they were unable to duplicate the condition. I then took it home, let it run for several hours and brought it to them with the Evaperator completely frozen in ice. They then ran it in their shop and stated that it will not freeze their. It is interesting to note that this model is supposed to detect, icing and shut the compressor off and turn the fan on high for a while. Evidently this feature does not work on mine and can not be repaired. No more Maytags for me.

Are the coils clean? If it has a filter is it clean? If yes to both, it has lost (leaked) refrigerant and it's time to buy a new dehumidifier. If the leak can be found it probably wouldn't be repairable and would cost more to fix than it's worth.
