Why do lights flicker


An electric water heater will draw a lot of electricity. Your house may not be wired well, and when the heater kicks on, your lights will dim some. If your house is over 25 years old, it's likely normal.

Compressor keeps turning on and off, I can hear it and it dims the lights showing an increase in power draw, it will blow the main circuit breaker to the house. Therefore it does not run enough to remove...


If when it's running it dims the lights in the room or entire house, The circuit breaker for the receptacle it's plugged into, is not a high enough amperage to carry the dehumidifier and whatever other electrical appliances that are on the same circuit. OR if your house is hold enough (1970's era), it may have aluminum wiring and its overheating .

If it's blowing the Main Circuit Breaker for the entire house and not just the circuit breaker for the receptacle it's plugged into, Stop using the dehumidifier immediately!!! Have an certified electrician check your home's circuit breaker panel and wiring. This could be a dangerous situation.

Control panel not working


If you have power going into the control but it does not illuminate or respond the control will need to be replaced. Here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/dryerconsole.html These boards are very sensitive to power surges and are not repairable, they must be replaced.

We just moved into a new house, and whenever I use


It sounds like it could be one of the following issues:

1. Bad wiring to the bathroom receptacle - this should be a GFCI outlet.

2. There is an overload somewhere on the same circuit - try the dryer with nothing else turned on.

3. The hair dryer may be bad or have a bad cord, plug, etc. Hair dryers can also become plugged (the air inlet screen) and overheat.

4. There could be loose or other bad wiring somewhere in the circuit.

If you are not familiar with working with electricity, it would be best to call a qualified electrician. They are the pros and can correct the problem.

White knight dryer wk767 (Crosslee) blows fuse when turned on


Probably a problem with the heater element (if mineral insulated metal sheath type), or fluff on wire heater coils if that kind. This is behind the back cover.
