There is ice on the filter and the filter will not come out. Tried turning off so it would melt, but filter still stuck. It is summer so why is ice forming?


I have had a AD75UST0 WHIRLPOOL Dehumidifier for several years. I had mine ice up once or twice particularly on very high humidity days > 90%. Once it thawed out. I was able to remove the filter. Most likely it is due to dust getting on coils & condenser Or actually has a Freon leak. to resolve the dirty coils you can easily dissemble (that is remove front & rear cover) it to give coils and condenser a good thorough cleaning. It the coils and condenser are not at all dirty, then is not the cause of the icing. The units are typically not serviceable - i.e. a disposable small appliance.

I am showing a HI on my current humidity/set humidity display what does it mean


The HI indicates that the current humidity is 90%+ in the room/unit. You should check if the filter is clogged. I've seen this message in dryer locations when the dehumidifier coils ice up. Check the coils (behind the filter) for any build up.

If this is a brand new dehumidifier, leave it on for an hour to see if it auto-defrosts. (A similar wait is needed if the room is cooler that 60 degrees F.)

If the unit continues to freeze up and the room is over 60 degrees, you may have a refrigerant leak in the dehumidifier. If it is still under warranty (5 years on the cooling system), contact Haier. The warranty service number is 1-877-337-3639.

The manual for the DE65EK is available here: www.haieramerica.com/downloads/dl/file/id/26/de65ek_manual.pdf . You will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to access the manual.

I hope this helps.

The top of the unit has alot of condensation on it. so i am wondering if its freezing up inside. Have set point at 55% what can i do to fix the issue


A little condensation is not something to worry about. But, a lot can be caused by a dirty or clogged air intake filter. Which can also cause the cooling coils to freeze.

Turn the unit OFF & unplug it, before removing the filter for cleaning.

Also, maintain 12" to 18' of clear air space all around the unit.

If the unit is in an extremely moist or damp environment, 55% is not really a low setting. 35% would be more appropriate for this type of environment.

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

Esco Oasis 2700L dehumidifier ices up. Is there a filter to be cleaned and if so, how to I get to it?


Hi,

The most common cause of frost and ice buildup on a dehumidifier is because the unit is operating in temperatures that are too cold. Many dehumidifiers are not equipped to run at temperatures below 65 degrees Fahrenheit.
To fix this problem, Position the dehumidifier in an area where there is at least one foot of clearance around the unit in order to allow for proper air circulation during its operation. Close all windows, doors and other outside openings to make sure your unit isn't attempting to remove moisture from areas outside of the immediate room. Determine the temperature of the room by checking a nearby thermostat or by using a hand-held thermometer.

Check the filter for dirt and buildup. Unplug the unit from the electrical source and check the filter by opening the filter compartment. If the filter is dirty, it will restrict airflow through the unit and lead to freezing. Soleus recommends lightly vacuuming the surface of the filter to remove dirt. The filter also can be washed in warm water if it is extremely dirty. Once clean, place the filter back in its compartment. Allow for the ice to melt and then restart your dehumidifier.

Our dehumidifier has formed a sheet of ice amongst the coils and will no longer pull moisture from the air. The hole from which the water drips is completely iced over. It is 70degrees in the room and...


Turn the unit OFF and unplug it from the wall. Allow it to thoroughly thaw and remove the humidifiers cabinet to expose the cooling coils. Clean those thoroughly and coat with a very light coating of WD40. Reassemble the humidifier and turn it ON. Set your humidity control at 50% and allow the unit to run for at least one hour. Check for water collection in the bucket and for any signs of icing, after one hour. If water is in the collection bucket and no signs of icing, lower the humidity to 45% and continue. If you not any signs of icing, watch the unit, as you need to know if it automatically goes into defrost mode. The compressor should shut off, but the fan will continue to run until defrosting is completed. If it doesn't the auto defrost sensor has failed and will need to be replaced.

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

Icing up recently.everyday it ices up. the temp. in the basement is about 55 degrees. never had a problem for over a year untill now. it supposed to have an auto-defrost, but it doesnt seem to work.


The air intake filter may be clogged. Cleaning it, may solve the problem, once the unit thaws out. In addition, low refrigerant gas can also cause the unit to ice up. While waiting for the unit to thaw completely, turn the Master On/Off Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. In addition to thawing this unplugged time, may give the unit a chance to reset itself.

Hope this helped you solve the problem.

My filter and the inside keep getting caked with ice even though my basement never gets below 55 degrees


this is most likely because of bad air flow... check your fans are working,, check your filters are clean

It keeps icing up even at the lowest #1 setting


is the filter dirty or is the air flow not as much as it used to be - low freon pressure - low air flow causes a/c units - dehumidifiers to ice up - if fan is running normal are the fan blades dirty

Unit is repeatedly freezing up


Almost all dehumidifiers now have automatic defrost, but if you are seeing frost is just one small area, it means there is a refrigerant leak. Check your warranty to see if the sealed system is covered longer than one year. Generally, if it is, most manufacturers will replace the unit (rather than repair it, as the repair is rather expensive compared to the cost of a new unit). If you do not have any sealed system warranty coverage left on it, don't fix it. Buy a new dehumidifier.
