It might be the thermolink on the fan motor.

Fan runs, compressor switch seems to click but fails to start. Compressor is warn to the touch.


Hi,
The compressor is not starting, either the start components (relay and capacitor) have failed or the compressor is no good.

I have a Kenmore 54701 Dehumidifer that quit working is there any thing to look for or just throw it out and buy a new one


Is it not powering at all? Remove cabinet and check glass fuse on power supply board

Is it running but no water?
Check to see if fan is blowing; if not then thermosenser on fan motor blown

Fan and compressor running but no water? Maybe the room is already dry; if not than probably have coolant leak - not worth fixing

Kenmore 54701 (70 pt) dehumidifier is not prerforming properly


could be a bad humidistat or a bad PTC relay on the compressor, check for voltage going to compressor, and check neutral continuity, if there is both then you have a bad compressor, check warranty on comp replacement, if no voltage then the humidistat is probably bad

Kenmore 54501 Dehumidifier Problem


Normal 0 When you push the power button, the blower fan comes on. In a few minutes you should hear a second "click"--that is your compressor starting. Do you hear that second click?

Dehumidifier not dehumidifying ...


Save the old one for parts if you get the same new one but I def. don't reccomend buying this unit again. The reviews are bad. The fan is not covered under the warranty except first year or extented warranty. I spoke with Kenmore & Sears about this to see if coverd under 5 yr. Only compressor,tubing & refrigeration system(see inside of front cover for warranty info.)

Sound more like a sensor/circuit board problem to me since fan is turning. I think the signal determins which setting fan needs via sensor assembly to run. I could be wrong. Justa thought.

Can you def. hear the compressor come on. You can look through grill to see fan spin & the compressor makes a clank/clunking noise/ The fan & compressor should turn same time. Good luck! If you got any info. on my fan problem & you have update or fixed your problem I ccould use some help. Check post for my problem.. Thanks! panfan1
