My dehumifier has an orange light by the picture of the fan. What do I need to do?


Empty the water collection bucket. But, before you do, turn the unit OFF & unplug it.

Does it have a filter?

"
It may be that the humidity level or temperature in the room where your dehumidifier is located is too low.

When the outdoor temperature is below 50 F, the indoor air will be dry even when the air inside is warm, therefore when it's cold outside the dehumidifier may collect little or no water.

Air conditioners will also remove moisture from the room, even if it's hot and humid outside, resulting in little or no moisture collecting in the dehumidifier bucket.

Some dehumidifiers have a deicer which turns off the compressor but keeps the fan running. When the compressor is off, moisture is not removed from the air. The deicer turns off the compressor when the room temperature is cold.

Some dehumidifiers do not have a deicer. If the room temperature is low enough, ice may form on the evaporator coil. The ice prevents the dehumidifier from removing and collecting water. If ice forms on coils, unplug dehumidifier until ice melts and room temperature rises."

Sometimes my dehumifier (Goldstar) leaks. It is not full and the collecting bucket is fitted properly. I see that there is a flap around the pipe coming from the coils. Is it possible that this flap is...


Gary, most of the time, what you described is caused by 2 thing:

1. The cooling coils are icing up and not thawing as they should. This is usually caused by a dirty or clogged air intake filter. Solution: Turn the unit OFF, unplug it and remove and clean the air intake filter.

2. The drain hole or tubing, that drains water into the bucket is clogged. Solution: Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar that is flexible (NO wire coat hangers, though) and appropriately sized to fit into the hole or tubing. Carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in, until to reach the bend in the tubing. You must gingerly work it past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. While slowly pulling it out, rotate (twist) the Zip Tie and as it reaches it's end, be prepared for some water to follow. That procedure will loosen any clogs.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let e know. Thanks.

The dehumifier is running but it isn't taking water from the air. The bucket is empty. Maytag dehumifier Model #m3dh30b2a serial #as750118


The operation a dehumidifier is based on the amount of humidity, the house or room where you have it placed. If the humid level is low and you have the humidifier set on a low extraction setting, there would be little to no water in the bucket. However, if you have all the settings correct and you still don't get water in the bucket, the top 2 reasons for this are: The Filter needs cleaning and # 2 the drain tube or hole is clogged. The solution for cleaning the filter is a no brainer. The solution for unclogging the drain tube or hole is not that difficult. You will need a 12" to 20" long Plastic Zip Tie (or something similar, but no wire coat hangers), that's small enough to go through the drain tube or hole. When you remove the bucket look up and into the compartment that the bucket came out of and you will see the drain tube or drain hole. Slowly and carefully push the zip tie into the hole and continue to work it into the hole until you reach the curve in the tubing. This is the tricky part. Carefully and gently work it past the curve and about 4" more. Then start removing the Zip Tie as you slowly rotate it. This will dislodge any clogs. As you continue to pull it out, be prepared for water to follow it. If you have water draining out, your problem is solved.

If none of the above solved your problem, the condenser unit may be low on refrigerant. In which case, you will need a pro to service it.

Hope this information helps to solve the problem.

Dehumdifier not collecting water.


It may be that the humidity level or temperature in the room where your dehumidifier is located is too low.

When the outdoor temperature is below 50 F, the indoor air will be dry even when the air inside is warm, therefore when it's cold outside the dehumidifier may collect little or no water.

Air conditioners will also remove moisture from the room, even if it's hot and humid outside, resulting in little or no moisture collecting in the dehumidifier bucket.

Some dehumidifiers have a deicer which turns off the compressor but keeps the fan running. When the compressor is off, moisture is not removed from the air. The deicer turns off the compressor when the room temperature is cold.

Some dehumidifiers do not have a deicer. If the room temperature is low enough, ice may form on the evaporator coil. The ice prevents the dehumidifier from removing and collecting water. If ice forms on coils, unplug dehumidifier until ice melts and room temperature rises.

The filter (on some models) may be dirty or clogged. If so, clean the filter. For instructions on cleaning the filter.

I hope this help to solve, if this answer solve it, remember to rate it. Good luck.

The dehumidifier runs until it is hot to touch on the back. But no water is collecting.


It may be building up with ice. If you turn it off does any ice melt into the bucket?
