SOURCE: 20% humidity reading

Hi, I just cleaned my dehumidifier and had the same problem as you. I used a spray water bottle and was not aware that the humidity sensor was being soaked. Very stupid of me!! Luckily I have two same dehumidifiers and used the other sensor to replace the one that I so stupidly ruined, and behold my machine worked again. Now I have to buy another sensor. To make sure we are talking about the same thing, my sensor is white,about 1 inch by 1/2 of an inch. It as 4 wires connected to it. To access it you remove the water tank, you will see 2 screws. Remove those, and pry the front panel loose. Be careful the top of the panel is held by two plastic hooks, they break easy. The sensor is located on the right side just above the radiator, under a produting oval lip which as foam around its rim. The wire colors are red black blue and yellow. Good luck Herman

SOURCE: kenmore 580.51650000 dehumidifier: compressor

fan should turn off when compressor not running, the relay switch is stuck open for the fan, and probably needs replacing, but even if it always runs there is no harm and it only uses like 15 watts

SOURCE: I have a 50 series

If the humidity level is at or lower than 30%, the unit won't turn ON, until the reaches 35 - 40%. It's rare for the sensors to go bad. Just keep in mind, the dehumidifier is reading the humidity near the floor, not up at say, chest level. Humidity levels change every season, so this really would not be that unusual. Make sure that your clean the air intake filter regularly. Cleaning and wiping down the coolant coils would be a good idea, too..

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

I have a danby dehumidifer model number DDR6011R It keeps saying the humidity is only 30..(Which I know it's higher) so the compressor isn't kicking on. Help??


It sounds like the humidistat sensor failed on the unit. You'll need to replace that sensor to be able to get the unit operational again

Fan and compressor run but coils not cold and no dehumidification is happening.


If your compressor is running but the coils are not getting cold, then you have a problem in your refrigerant circuit.....Most likely a restriction or a leak with a leak being the more likely of the two.

Compressor running very hot but almost no cooling. Fan running


make sure the coils are clean both evaporator and condenser,then if there is a capacitor in the motor circuitry,check this,finally if the coils frost,then clear up and frost and clear up time and again,this is a sign of low refrigerant R134a,and this also will make the compressor run hot

Ice keeps forming on top of my lg dehumidifer


MOst likely the room the dehumidifier is operating is is too cold for proper dehumidification to take place. Try warming up the room and I believe then your dehumidifier will work fine.

Dehumidifer runs for about 45sec to 1minute and then shuts off. wqhat would be making this happen


If it does that consistently, then it's likely that the compressor is overheating and shutting down. (It has a thermal overload circuit to prevent a potential fire). Another cause could be a malfunction of the control circuit board which runs all functions of the unit. To check for possible compressor problem, unplug the unit, remove the housing to expose the compressor, plug it back in and power it up. When it shuts down, feel the compressor. It should be warm to the touch, but definitely not so hot that it singes your fingers.

If you find that the compressor is just normal warm, then the control circuit board is shot and needs to be replaced. Check with the merchant or manufacturer for availability & cost. If prohibitive, you're better off simply replacing that unit with a new one.

Amana 30 (looks like dk25) unit runs but coils freeze up


Most dehumidifiers have a defrost mode in which the compressor is turned off to give time for the frozen water to melt. The freezing problem ocurrs when the unit is used in very cold weather. Check your manual to see if this unit comes with automatic defrost mode. If it does, it would appear that it is not operating correctly and you can request warranty service. If no defrost mode is available, then your only option is to heat up the room in order to use the dehumidifer within its limit of operation. Some units can operate as low as 36 F, but most units cannot go that low. Find out what your unit's specs are from the manufacturers web site.

Dehumidifier won't shut off


Well your dehumidifer runs constantly. My guess seeing how you bought a 30 pint per 24 hrs. Your house better be 400sqft. It is under sized and humidity need to be 30/50 percent to stop mold growth. It cant keep up its two small 50 pint are for 1000sqft 65 pint is 1300sqft. Upgrade now!!!!!

What you think it means is exactly what it does mean. When a running unit is shut off it should not be restarted until the system pressures have had time to balance out so the compressor can restart without difficulty.
