I have a LAD704DUL frigidaire dehumidifier that will not shut off after being shut off, and not until the plug is pulled. Is this worth getting fixed


Dear Peter Nicolle,

according to the user manual the dehumidifier will not stop running for the following 5 reasons:

  • Windows or doors near dehumidifier are open to outdoors.
  • Area to be dehumidified is too large.
  • Air movement through dehumidifier is blocked.
  • Dehumidifier has been installed or restarted recently.
  • Dehumidifier is in the CONTINUOUS mode.
You can find more information on the user manual on page 9 under the category DEHUMIDIFIER RUNS TOO MUCH.

I can't get my float on my dehumidifier to work. It is in full mode although empty. The light keeps flashing.It doesn't seem to be making contact with the "switch" in the unit. Can you...


Just, gingerly jiggle the float ball rod and it should release and return to the down position.If that doesn't work the first time, spray a light coating of WD40 on it.

Whirlpool DEHUMIDIFIER Model - AD70USS1 does fan NOT does not cycle off anymore in the low settings as it should


According to the Owner's Manual for your model, the fan will run continually, if the unit is set in continuous mode or if the unit is in defrost mode. Once the unit senses a rise in the humidity level, the compressor will start up again. Also, a dirty or clogged air filter will cause the fan to run more that it should.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Kenmore # 58052650100 this is my humidifiers model number my question is my first time using i need to know how to use this machine this machine stars 30% to 70% what is the right number to use? i have...


Christian, simply put ... the lower the percentage the more moisture it will extract. The higher the percentage the less it will extract and just maintain that level.

The lowest level is what you want to use in a wet basement. If the ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 & 60 degrees F, you want to get the dehumidifier up off the floor on to something sturdy, that can handle the weight and the vibration. The reason for this, is that most dehumidifiers will not work well at or between those temperatures. Once the water collection bucket is FULL, the Bucket Full light will come on the the dehumidifier will shut OFF. The bucket most be emptied and properly reinstalled, before the unit will turn ON again. Also, rather than run it in continual mode, run it in a timed mode. Usually either 2 hours of 4 hours.

It seems you don't have the Owner's Manual for this unit. It would be wise to get one. Since it's a Sears Kenmore, you can get it online from Sears Parts Direct. This will help you in the future in performing routine maintenance on the unit.

In the meantime, I hope I helped you understand some of the basic operation of your dehumidifier. Please let me know. Thanks.

My dehumidfier won't shut off. I check everything out and it's good but it just won't shut off it keep running.


It may be, that you have it running in continuous mode, rather than timed mode. Also, most dehumidifiers fans will run almost continually, to keep the air moving, so the humidity sensor can pickup and increase in humidity, if there is one.

If the above doesn't seem to be the problem with your unit, turn The Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 12-15 minutes. This will give the electronics time to reset themselves, if necessary.

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

It runs, the fan works in Hi and Lo, the compressor seems to work, it seems to blow warm air if the compressor is running and cold air when it is not. The mode switch does something but I am not sure...


Take it to a metal scrap yard and turn it in the copper and buy a new one. Buy a different brand.
Sorry to be so blunt but dehumidifiers are very cheap and disposable not many people work on them. If this help please rate me and do a testimonial.

Why is the defrosting light coming on periodicaly.


Defrosting is a normal function of a dehumidifier. When the evaporator gets too cold and starts to ice, the dehumidifier goes into defrost mode to clear / stop the ice formation. How often is the defrost light coming on and does the dehumidifier seem to be dehumidifying as expected ?

Hi Fred, let me see if I can assist you. If your dehumidifier doesn't seem to run often but the humidity in the room is high, try adjusting the humidistat control on the dehumidifier to a dryer setting. If the dehumidifier seems to run constantly, but there's little or no water in the container, there may be a problem in the refrigeration system. Try cleaning the unit. If that doesn't work, you can't repair the refrigeration system yourself, you need a qualified appliance repair technician to do that.

I went back and rechecked. If the fan mode is selected, you can only set the fan at one of the three speeds. If you leave it in the fan mode, the dehumidifier will not come on.

Once the fan speed is selected, it will run at that speed in the dehumidifier mode. The fan will keep running, even when the dehumidifier (compressor) shuts down.

The only way to get it to turn off is to use the clock setting, which either selects how long it stands-by before starting , or how long it will run before going back to stand-by. DeLonghi calls it "stand-by," we would call it "off." DeLonghi calls unplugged "off."

I've never turned mine to stand-by, because it will never get my entire house down to 30% humidity (I have it where my air handler returns air to the basement). I live in the greater DC Metro area, where 75% humidity is considered extremely dry.

Apparently the normal mode of operation is fan on unless awaiting a clock start, or encountering a clock shut-down; either condition puts it into the "stand-by" mode.
