Kenmore model 580.54701 70 Pint dehumidifier

Unit seems to be running fine and then sounds like it is running hard and no air is being blown out of the back of the unit. We turn the unit off and then on again and it runs okay for a while and then the same problem happens. we have also cleaned the filter.

    Unit seems to start normally, you can hear the compressor kick in and stay running. After running a few minutes, something switches- you can hear it, and I believe a fan stops, or at any rate, the noise level changes, yet it still seems like I can hear the compressor, only quieter. It is still producing some condensation, but at a much reduced rate, regardless of the air humidity. Unit has been cleaned already.

I have this problem, although I took it apart and have proper voltage from the board, but the fan still does not come on. When trying to check the motor itself, one of the screws was frozen on and I stripped it, I cannot takeit apart further unless I drill it out, which could damage the motor. I am just going to order new fan motor. I found one at the following URL (no I do not work for them).!search.action;jsessionid=F6wFpwSaiWrNMYcOENWLGA**.shcapp3106?productGroup=N%2FA&partNumber=4681A20040K&pop=flush

Evaporator fan is not turning on - a problem with almost all dehumidifiers... probably on this unit (being so new) it's the control circuitry (in the circuit board) which switches the fan on...
I have the same unit with the same problem)

Good luck!

I have a Kenmore 50 pint dehumidifier Model 580.54501400

It looks like it is simple to get the filter out but we are finding it to be imposible. How can we take it out. It doesn't just pull down.

Dehumidifier automatic on and off function not working

Unless you live in a dry environment or place the unit in a hermetically sealed room, it probably will not turn off. As the air dries within the room, more moisture comes in with the air. As long as the air outside of the room is more humid than the room this will be true.

you have a bad compressor. The clicking sound is the thermal relay resetting.

A common problem - low on refrigerant. Unfortunately it's not a simple fix. Check your warranty to see if you're still covered for "Sealed system repairs"

Kenmore 54701 (70 pint) dehumidifier stopped running

the lowest setting for % of humidity is 35% on that unit... sounds like with all the other errors that the IC board is bad (the Control circuit board behind the displays)
