T he compresser on my dehumidifier is loud, why is that.the fan that runs is guiet but when the compresser turns on it sounds like it is vibrating


It may not be setting on a level floor or the hardwood flooring or tile flooring is allowing it to vibrate more than it normally should. Also, remove the air intake filter to make sure it's clean.

Hope this helped you, Kathy. Please let me know. Thanks.

The compressor on my Danby dehumidifier turns on for a few seconds, very weakly, and quickly cuts out. The fan and control panel are all working properly. The humidity is high enough for it to turn on...


Sounds like you've lost a lot of freon. Find the pump on your unit. Be careful, but after running it a while, touch the tube somewhere between the pump and cooling coils. If it is not hot then you have lost fluid. What happens is under normal working conditions the compressor would compress the freon making it hot, which then gets cooled by the radiator coils. In your case, there isn't enough fluid to compress to make it hot. Unfortunately, you need to have it refilled by a repair shop. Try your local A/C or HVAC shop. Don't be surprised if they can't refill with freon as it's bad for the ozone and being phased out.

Fan quitting on unit


Maybe the room is dry enough so the humidity sensor is turning it off?

If not, maybe the thermisensor(fuse) on the fan motor is failing?

Year 2005 cycling fan and compressor


Your unit is probably operating in defrost mode. When you use a dehumidifier in a cold room, the condensing coils can freeze water. The unit senses this and thus stops the compressor until the water frozen on the coils melts. Then it resumes its cycle. This is a problem you will have during the winter months. It makes the operation of the unit inefficient, but this is otherwise normal behavior.

No water in the bucket


You most likely have a freon leak, or the compressor is not running. When the machine first turns on you should be able to see if the compressor is running or if it is just the fan. If the compressor is not running it does have a start devise and a relay on it that can be replaced. If the compressor is bad, most units have a 5 year warranty on the compressor, so contact the manufacturer for warranty service. If the compressor is running you have a freon leak, and it would need to be found, repaired and the freon replaced. This is a large repair, estimated charge for a leak repair would be around $149.99 The reason is the long time it takes to find the leak, and all the parts needed. Drier, valve, freon, etc.. Good luck, and I hope it is only the relay. You can get those relitively inexpencively. 3 in 1 kits are also good for a hard to start compressor. They give the compressor a little more kick to start it. They are about $28.00 and easy to install once you are to the compressor. I hope this will FixYa.
