The most common cause of frost and ice buildup on a dehumidifier is
because the unit is operating in temperatures that are too cold. Many
dehumidifiers are not equipped to run at temperatures below 65 degrees

clearance around the unit in order to allow for proper air circulation
during its operation. Close all windows, doors and other outside
openings to make sure your unit isn't attempting to remove moisture from
areas outside of the immediate room. Determine the temperature of the room by checking a nearby thermostat or
by using a hand-held thermometer.
Check the filter for dirt and buildup. Unplug the unit from the
electrical source and check the filter by opening the filter

in its compartment. Allow for the ice to melt and then restart your
