It is a Delonghi dehumidifier, DH 90 U. The low temperature light stays on constantly even at 90 degree ambient temp. No water is collecting in the tank. The unit is about 5 years old and has been trouble-free until this. DP

    The email address you sent was for a Honeywell whole house dehumidifier and looks nothing like my small portable Delonghi unit. Please try again.

If your dehumidifier is running constantly and the water container is not filling up at least once a day, there may be something wrong with the dehumidifier. But if the unit runs constantly and the water container has to be emptied daily, there's just a lot of humidity in the room and the dehumidifier is doing what it's supposed to do.

The dehumidifier can run all day and will not collect water in the bucket. I have set i according to directions.


Joanne, There are 5 basic, yet solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

I hope his helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

We just bought a new Friedrichs dehumidifier for our damp basement. The temp is reading 81 and the humidity 63 and it's been running for 2 hours. The basement is about 1000 sq feet and the outdoor temp...


Iris, all dehumidifiers generate some heat while in operation. However, it may be generating higher temps because of it's location. Dehumidifiers don't work well in temperatures below 65 degrees, In fact they struggle below that temp. Unless it's a Low Temperature unit, designed specifically for basement applications.

For example, the ambient air temperature never changes more than 10 degrees F throughout the year.
The air temperature at floor level (where the dehumidifier is placed) is colder then the air temperature at shoulder level. Raising the unit up off the floor onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight of the unit, plus a bull bucket of water, will generally solve the problem.

Be sure to clean the air intake filter regularly. At least once every 2 weeks. And wipe off the cabinet and the front louvers, when you change the filter. Always, turn the unit OFF & Unplug it, before removing the filter. Never operate the unit without the filter in place. Doing so could cause damage to the unit.

I hope this information has helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

When the dehumidifier runs it forms ice on the top of the unit and does not collect much water in the bottom.


The problem you described can be caused by 3 things:

1. The air intake filter is dirty or clogged and needs to be removed and cleaned.

2. The cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it before attempting
to clean the coils with warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Then rinse and wipe dry. A light
coating of WD40 will help them stay clean.

3. The dehumidifier is being operated in a basement, where the air temperature at floor level is
below 65 degrees. When this happens dehumidifiers struggle at temps below 65 degrees F
unless it its a Low Temp model, designed for basement applications. Raising the unit up off
the floor onto a sturdy table or counter top, that can hold the weight of the unit, plus a full tank
of water, will generally resolve this problem.

I hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Basement smells musty, fan won't stay on continuous


Barbara, are you running the unit in a continuous mode (i.e Using a hose to drain the unit)? Or is the water draining into the water collection bucket?

If you are not using a hose for continual drainage, the fan will not run constantly. It requires that, for continual operation.

Also, you may have the humidity extraction level set to high. Lower it to 35%. Also, remove and check the air intake filter, as it may need cleaning.

Dehumidifiers that are not Low Temp models have a difficult time operating in basement applications. Because the air temp at floor level is colder than at shoulder level. At temperatures between 40 & 60 degree F, regular dehumidifiers struggle to keep up. Raising it up off the flow on to a sturdy table, counter top, etc that can handle the weight of the unit, plus a full bucket of water can really help.

I hope this was of assistance and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Does not collect water in bucket but runs all the time


Does it have a filter?
http://whirlpool.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/953

also:

"
It may be that the humidity level or temperature in the room where your dehumidifier is located is too low.

When the outdoor temperature is below 50 F, the indoor air will be dry even when the air inside is warm, therefore when it's cold outside the dehumidifier may collect little or no water.

Air conditioners will also remove moisture from the room, even if it's hot and humid outside, resulting in little or no moisture collecting in the dehumidifier bucket.

Some dehumidifiers have a deicer which turns off the compressor but keeps the fan running. When the compressor is off, moisture is not removed from the air. The deicer turns off the compressor when the room temperature is cold.

Some dehumidifiers do not have a deicer. If the room temperature is low enough, ice may form on the evaporator coil. The ice prevents the dehumidifier from removing and collecting water. If ice forms on coils, unplug dehumidifier until ice melts and room temperature rises."

My challenge dehumidifier runs ok but does not collect any water , whats the problem?


low outside temp means low inside humidity

If the room temperature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
I out mine over the floor drain.
Turn off and it will defrost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifiers work below a room temp of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensor from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.
