Less than 2 years old; fan still runs, but no water being removed. Pan is totally dry. Ideas? Anything I can fix on my own?


The compressor relay's purpose is to start the compressor. A faulty relay can result in the compressor failing to cycle on. The relay is accessed from the lower rear of the dehumidifier. The relay is located in the terminal box which is located at the side of the compressor.


Before testing a compressor relay, unplug the dehumidifier to avoid an electrical shock hazard. Also, if the compressor uses a capacitor, it must be discharged first to avoid the risk of electrical shock.



The compressor relay can be accessed by removing the terminal cover box. The cover is held on by tension or with a retaining clip.

Sounds like the compressor is inoperative. Most, if not all new units have no means of recharging the freon if it leaks out. If the coils are not cooling, the compressor is not operating and the unit will not dehumidify.

When compressor cycles on the circuit breaker kicks off


Your compressor has a direct short there is nothing that can be done just replace dehumidifier. If you replace compressor it will exceed cost of new unit. If this helps you please rate me and do a testimonial.

My Santa Fe compact dehumidifier in my crawlspace makes a noise (not a smooth humming sound but more of a harsh vibrating sound) when it is not dehumidifying. I can turn the knob to the dryest setting and...


The black cylinder is the compressor. It sounds like your unit is cycling the compressor for some reason. If the compressor starts, runs fine, and removes water when you set the humidity control to the driest setting the compressor is probably OK and the problem may be with the humidity control causing the dehumidifier to "short cycle" for some reason. You may need to change the humidity control or relocate the dehumidifier in your crawl space.
If the compressor attempts to start, and then sits quiet for 10 minutes, and then attempts to start again, you have a problem with the dehumidifier. There are a few things that can cause this problem:
Low refrigerant charge
Bad compressor capacitor
Bad compressor overload
Plugged capillary tube or broken expansion valve
are the common causes of this behavior. If you suspect one of these problems, call the factory service department at 1-800-533-7533 for help.

Good luck with your dehumidiifer.

Fan kicks on but compressor does'nt start. Humidity control checked out. Compressor ohmed out. Fan runs for about a minute then it shuts down.


i would do a continutity check on you relay and overload, other than that
what is the humidity level in the room, as well as the ambiant temp. these mahines cycle for that very reason, the fan will come on, do a check and then determine if it should start the compressor.
check if you have voltage at the compressor when its supposed to be running ( just a last thought)
ive seen compressors ohm out, but in fact be bad

fan should turn off when compressor not running, the relay switch is stuck open for the fan, and probably needs replacing, but even if it always runs there is no harm and it only uses like 15 watts

If the coil is freezing up and the compressor is short cycling,there must be a low pressure switch opening, do to either, low on charge or not enough air across the coil.

Year 2005 cycling fan and compressor


Your unit is probably operating in defrost mode. When you use a dehumidifier in a cold room, the condensing coils can freeze water. The unit senses this and thus stops the compressor until the water frozen on the coils melts. Then it resumes its cycle. This is a problem you will have during the winter months. It makes the operation of the unit inefficient, but this is otherwise normal behavior.
