Question about Dehumidifiers

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Challenge RAM710 Dehumidifier which seems to be running finr except that the collected water is running out of a small exit pipe in the base of the unit and not collecting as it should in the built-in collection bucket. What should I do, plug the outlet pipe? Please advise... Thank you.

    Thank you, that's exactly what I've done and it is working fine now. I realised there must have been a plug in the outlet pipe which had fallen out.

SOURCE: Machine works, but no water collecting

A dehumidifier is basically a cooler. The condenser coil on the outside should feel cold to the touch usually around 34 to 38 degrees, as air passes over the coils they collect the humidity in the air and it then drips down into a collector tray. If the coil does not feel cold it is ether a bad control switch not letting the cooler (compressor) turn on, low on freon, or burned out compressor

SOURCE: a challenge dehumidifier not collecting water

Hi, Just came across this post and although it is an old one, someone else may have the same problem. We too have a Challenge 4151319 which seemed to be running fine but did not collect water. We found out (by accident) that by raising the back edge by 1" the dehumidifier works fine. We initially placed a book under back edge to tip it forward slightly but eventually replaced this with a piece of wood. Hi Tech! In this position it collects water as it should - just looks a little odd!

Our Challenge 4151319 Dehumidifier has ceased to collect water. The fan operates perfectly. Can I get it serviced in Devon?


Hi,

First, make sure the humidistat isn't set too high by adjusting it to the lowest humidity setting and running it again.

Next, test the dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower running. If you don't see water collecting in the unit after several minutes, turn the unit off and clean all dehumidifier filters and coils. If, after adjusting the settings and cleaning the unit, you still don't see water collecting, you may have a refrigeration issue.

This situation will have to be addressed by a qualified technician.

Good luck

A challenge dehumidifier not collecting water


If the room tempature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
I out mine over the floor drain.
Turn off and it will defost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifers work below a room temo of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensot from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.
