Need float switch that cuts off dehumidifer when bucket gets full


Without a Model Number or Part Number it's hard to help you. But here are three links, where you can find the float switch, if it's still available. You'll definitely need the Model Number to find anything.

I have dh404ey7 dehumidifier from goldstar and the fan wont turn on how do i get to work without spending alot of money?? Thank you


Hi,
No there is no way to lubricate the fans internally...they are made to run for a bit and then be thrown out...
I have found that by using a thin oil like WD-40 and then positioning the motor so that it runs back the shaft into the motor you can get it to work into the motor. I usually use WD-40 and then follow with a light motor or sewing machine oil. This seems to give a longer solution...

Dehumidifer - Working??? Not Sure.


if you can verify that the compressor is still active (is there a noticeable hum or buzz and / or do the room lights slightly dim during power on?) then the most likely problem is a loss of freon. if the compressor never turns on, then a faulty humidistat is likely...an electrician can run a test of this by "jumpering it out" to force on the compressor motor.

Collecting no water


My crosley dehum. acted the same way. It turned out to be a bad defrost thermostat on the evaporator coil.
