My frigidaire dehumidifier mod. #LAD254NTL only fills the bucket
and will not transfer to the connected hose
happens quite frequently. It''s due to a clog in the hose or a clog
in the hose connection tubing. If you unit has a float valve in the top
of the bucket, be sure that it's not stuck in the UP position. To
resolve clogging problem, do the following:
1. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Disconnect the hose from the unit
and check for clogs and remove them if necessary.
2. If no clogs were found in the hose, the clog is in the hose connection tubing. Use and 18"
long, plastic ZIP Tie, appropriately sized to fit in the hose connector tubing. Carefully insert the
Zip Tie or something similar (NO Wire coat hangers, though) into the hole and continue to push
it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work it past this bend, until
the ZIP Tie either bottoms out or you run out of usable ZIP Tie. Then while rotating (Twisting) the
ZIP Tie, slowly pull it out. As you reach the inserted end of the ZIP Tie, be prepared for some
water to follow.
should solve the problem. Be sure the hose is no longer than 5 feet and
that it slopes downward from the unit, with no kinks in it.
Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know, Thanks.
