Question about Dehumidifiers

1 Answer

I just purchased a dehumidifier. I transported it on it's side. I didn't see the inconspicuous note on the top of the box to not tip it on it's side. I have not unpacked it yet. Is it a total loss? or is there a chance it might work?Jean

The note is because oil will run into the compression area and if it is run it may blow the reed valve(s) in the compressor rendering it useless. Setting it upright for a day or so before starting should solve the problem.
