No power. Plug in and nothing happens.


Before jumping to any conclusions, remove the water collection bucket and check the inside of the bucket for a float valve (if yours is so equipped). It may be stuck in the UP position, which will not allow the unit to start. If it is, jiggle the arm of the valve to make it return to the down position.
Reinstall the bucket "squarely" into the bucket holder, making sure that the back of the bucket makes good contact with the bucket safety removal switch. This is important, because if it doesn't, the unit will not start.

If all of the above fails, check the outlet the unit is plugged into, to be sure the outlet still has power. If it doesn't check your home's circuit breaker panel for a tripped circuit breaker. If you find one, unplug the unit, before resetting the breaker. Aslo, check the outlet for a loose wire connection.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Unit trips breaker after running for short period of time. compressor is extremely hot and has odd smell.


From hat you have described, it sounds like the fan motor or the compressor is overheating and you should stop using the unit immediately. Especially, since it's tripping the circuit breaker. As far as how to repair it is concerned, you won't be able to tell if it's repairable until it's dismantled and all the systems are checked. Plus, Fedders as you knew them, when you purchased this unit, no longer exist. Some parts are still available, but they are in few supply. You may simply want to replace this unit.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

Dehumidifier has stopped working...it appears to be electrical..no switches are working and no lights are on.


Check the outlet that the unit is plugged into, to be sure that it's still has power. If it doesn't, a circuit breaker for that outlet may have tripped. Or the outlet receptacle may have a loose wire. Try plugging the unit into another outlet that is not on the same circuit, as the one it's currently plugged into.

Demudifier worked great, all a sudden it just stopped. No power. Now it won't start up. What should I try?


First, check the outlet that it's plugged into, to make sure that there's still power to the outlet. If there isn't, then the circuit breaker for that outlet has been tripped, in your home's circuit breaker panel. Leave the dehumidifier unplugged and reset the circuit breaker. If it trips again, without the dehumidifier unplugged, then the outlet is at fault. Perhaps there's a loose wire connection or the interior of the outlet is cracked.

If it didn't trip without the dehumidifier plugged in, plug the unit it in,. But, before you do, make sure the dehumidifier's Master ON/OFF Switch is OFF. Once it's plugged in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. If it runs now, GREAT! If it trips the circuit breaker again, there's either a short in the power cord or an internal electrical short. Which will require extensive troubleshooting to find.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have two Haier HDN655E dehumidifier's. One works fine and the other wont come on. I have tried unplugging and plugged back in, hit the start button and nothing happens. Is there a reset switch or a...


Have you tested the outlet it's plugged into, to make sure it still has power? If it doesn't, check the circuit breaker panel in you home for a tripped circuit breaker. If there is one, unplug the dehumidifier, before resetting it. Then plug the dehumidifier back in. If the circuit breaker trips again, the problem is within the dehumidifier or the outlet is faulty (i.e. Loose wire, burned wire, broken outlet). If the outlet is not faulty, you should contact Haier America Parts and Repair 877-337-3639.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Unit will start and run for 5 seconds, then will blow a circut breaker on 20A. circut. This is a model AD75USTO Serial # QU2660438 AKA Whirlpool gold energy star


Hopefully, it's not a problem inside the unit that's causing the circuit breaker to trip. Is there another electrical appliance plugged into the same outlet or on that circuit that is ON and draws 15 amps of power? If so, that's the problem. If that's not the case, turn the circuit breaker OFF and remove the outlet cover, so you can inspect the receptacle and it's wiring. A loose wiring connection or a broken or cracked receptacle could be the issue. If you don't find any damage reassemble the outlet and turn the circuit breaker back ON. Instead of plugging in the dehumidifier, plug in a lamp or something similar and turn it ON. Leave it on for more than 5 minutes to see if the circuit breaker trips again. If it does, you'll know the problem is either with the outlet receptacle or the circuit breaker. If doesn't, plug in the dehumidifier (Make sure the Master ON/OFF Switch on the unit is in the OFF position, before plugging it in. Then turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. If the circuit breaker trips again, the problem is in the dehumidifier. You will need to call Whirlpool Customer Care, as it's an internal electrical issue.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, I have included a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference. http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%201188927.pdf

I hope what information I have provided to you, will help you trouble shoot and solve the problem.

I have a Whirlpool AD75UST humidifier that stopped running, almost like it blew a fuse or something. Does it have a fuse somewhere? Any other possibilities? Thank you!


Have you checked the receptacle it's plugged into, to see if it's still working? Use an electric lamp to check this. If the lamp doesn't work, the circuit breaker in the home's main panel has been tripped. Unplug the dehumidifier and reset the circuit breaker. Then plug the dehumidifier back in. If it trips the circuit breaker again, there's an electrical problem within the dehumidifier.

In answer to your direct question ... some dehumidifiers have a reset switch. It's probably on the back of the unit, above the water collection tub. if all else fails consult your Owners Manual's Trouble Shooting Guide. If you have misplaced it, you can download it from the Whirlpool Appliance starting at their home page.

Hope this helped head you in the right direction to solving your problem.

Unit trips out circuit after a few minutes (20Amp stand alone circuit)


make sure that the circuit breaker for the electrical plug is not faulty, cause after a long lifetime of high amperage flowing through it, the springs will start to get weak. If this is the case then you need to replace the electrial breaker. Otherwise, make sure that the power system on the system is not pulling too much current, Or that there is not a faulty breaker inside the printer itself, which has become weak.
