We have two Danby Premiere Dehumidifiers. Both have stopped picking up water. The filters are clean, the fans run and there is alot of moisture in the air? Any ideas on how to fix them?


I assume that you have already:
  • Emptied the water buckets.
  • Are sure the buckets are properly in place.
  • Are sure the bucket switches are not stuck in the full bucket position.
  • Cleaned the cooling coils.
  • Verified that the controls are set for a low humidity
  • Verified that there are no trouble lights or codes,
  • Know that the area to be dehumidified is well above freezing..
It sounds like they are both stuck in defrost mode or the compressors overheated and need to cool off. "Both" is a bothersome word. Both might imply a power surge that wiped out the controls. I would:
  1. Unplug them and let them cool off 36 hours.
  2. Check your manual for a control panel reset.
  3. Take off whatever covers I could, to let me touch the cooling coils to be sure they get cool.
  4. Plug in # one and reset the panel.
  5. Let it run and see if the coils get cold.
  6. Plug in # two and reset the panel.
  7. Let it run and see if the coils get cold.
And then decided what to do next. Hopefully the cool off and reset did it .

Good luckl.

Freezes up


most units draw in the front and expel from the rear air , keeping filters clean (never run without one) is important for this function , frost on coils is a sure sign that air flow is low , or might be unit has lost [part of its gas charge due to heat build up from loss of cooling

My husband saids run the dehumifier on low setting to take out dampness in the basement? I said no, run the dehumifier on higher setting like 50 or 60 to take more water out of he basement? What should...


Actually, your husband is correct. The settings reflect the amount of humidity you want to remain in the house. I really don't think you want to leave 50 to 60% humidity in the house.

35% removes the greatest amount of humidity.

Hope this helped answer your question and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Should the dehumidifier be blowing air out? It is


Unless the water level sensor is not working and you have the humidity setting low enough to call the fan should be running. If not then check water level sensor or float control to make sure they are working. Make sure the float is free to move if so equipped.If not clean and free up float.I would turn control dial up all the way and see if you can hear it trying to run. Turn it up and down several times.Also if you have a volt meter check to make sure you have incoming power to control and fan motor. Before I spent the money on a new motor I would bypass control and wire straight to motor.Try to isolate problem by process of elimination instead of just replacing parts till you find the right one. I have done this to many times and ended up spending more in parts and alot more in frustration,then the unit was worth to start with. Thank you.

My coils are freezing up


Make sure the filter is clean and plenty of air comes through, when coils freeze it is usually caused by low air flow coupled with lots of humidity and low air temperature in the space to be cooled. Clean the filter, fan and gently brush all dust and debris from the intake of the cold coil and retry it. If the basement is already cool and you are trying to dehimidify you should use a dehumidifier that features defrost controls.

Compressor runs continually and cooling coils ice up but it doesn't defrost.


probally has lost some charge on the refrigerant. Low charge will ice the coil. Unless you are operating this at low temperatures. The ones I have seen do not have a defrost on them

The coils are freexing up. How can i fix this? fedders dehumidifier a7dh45b2a


Make sure your coils are clean and free of restrictions and that the fan is running. If this is ok, then it is probably a leak in the system resulting in low charge. Cost of new dehumidifier will be cheaper than having it repaired.

The humidifier runs but is not collecting water... so humidity level never drops.


My brand new frigidaire 50 liter dehumidifier has been on for two days and has not collected water from my damp basement. It is on the factory settings: high fan and "CO" (continuous).

Dehumidifer seems to run constantly


With that low of a setting it will most likely be kicking in alot more often. Most people run their dehumidifiers between 60-65%. It is a matter of preference. Also some basements hold out moisture more than others. There could be alot of variables affecting this. One thing you need to make sure is that you have the correct placement. Make sure you dont keep it near the sump pump or any other standing water because those areas have more humidity due to the water being there. Also make sure it is not in an area like a laundry room because when your washing machine despenses water it is despensing moisture into the air. I try to keep it at a central location if at all possible and away from areas that have water. If you found this solution helpful please rate it when you get a chance. Thanks - Tech101
