I'm betting your base model number is JVM1860, JVM1861, JVM1870, JVM1871, JVM3660, or JVM3670.
That's the automatic louver you're having trouble with. There are micro switches in the louver assembly which tell the controller when the louver is open or closed.
If one of those switches or the louver motor fails, the louver will not work correctly.
Did your cooktop lights recently fail?
Sometimes the surge from them shorting will cause damage to the circuit board, which can be repaired.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
There is a video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

I HAVE THE BHD-301-D COMFORT AIRE DEHUMIDIFIER AND THE LIGHT KEEPS BLINKING AND IT WILL NOT RUN I DO NOT KNOW WERE THE FILTER IS TO SEE IF IT NEEDS CLEAN CAN YOU HELP THANKS


The filter is located behind the front louvers. It can be accessed by removing the water collection bucket and looking up into the bucket holder, just behind the louvers. You should see a plastic pull tab handle, which is the filter frame. If you have never removed the filter for cleaning, it may have a piece of plastic tap, which was used for shipping. you will need to remove the tape and discard it, before pulling straight won the filter frame.

The filter can be cleaned by vacuuming it or if it's really dirty, washing it it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly and shake off any excess water and dry the filter completely before reinstalling it. Never operate the unit with out the air intake filter in place.

Hope I was able to help you and thanks for choosing FixYa..

The BHD-501-D dehumidifier developed a dripping sound of water. Does it have a filter we need to change or some other issue. This dehumidifier has been in use Sept-Oct 2009, July-Oct 2010 and...


The dripping sound, if it's water dripping into the water collection bucket is normal. The filter is behind the louvers on the front. It can be accessed(depending on the model) by turning the unit OFF, unplugging it and removing the water bucket. Inside the water bucket holder at the top of it's opening, just behind the louvers, you will see a plastic tab(s) pull handle. If the filter has never been removed to be cleaned (shame on you), there may be a piece of plastic tape holding it in place. This was for shipping purposes. Remove it and discard it. Pull the tab handle(s) straight down and the filter and frame should come out. It may be snug, since you have never removed it, so be gently persistent . Since it has never been cleaned in 2 years, vacuuming it will not work. Wash it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid, rinse thoroughly and allow to completely dry, before reinstalling. NEVER operate the unit without the filter in place. As it cause damage to the unit.

If the filter was not where I said to first look. There may be a flip open type rectangular door on the right side of the unit, just behind the front louvers. Ope that door and you will see the plastic filter frame. Pull that straight out and follow the instructions above to clean it.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Where is air intake filter? unit is icing up Thanks so much


The air intake filter is one of 2 places. In either case, it's behind the front louvers

1. Remove the water collection bucket from it's holder. Look up into the bucket holder, just behind
the front louvers. You should see what looks like a plastic frame. It may have a pull tab handle. In
any event, the is the filter frame. Pull it straight down and out. It can be cleaned with a vacuum or
if it's really dirty, wash it in warm water and dish washing liquid, rinse and allow to completely dry
before reinstalling it. NEVER operate the unit without the filter in place. Doing so, could damage
the unit.

2, Look on the right hand side of the unit's cabinet, just behind the louvers. If you see what appears
to be a op open door, the filter is behind that door. Follow the above directions for cleaning the
filter.

I hope this helps you. Please let be know.

MY dehumdifier is blowing warm air ,Is there a fitler that needs to be cleaned and how is this done ? Model 3fdl5051 50pints


It's not unusual for a dehumidifier to blow warm air. As it may be in defrost mode. Even so, they still blow warm air.

The model number you furnished is slightly helpful. Knowing what brand it is, would be even better.

Never-the-less, the filter should be located behind the front louvers of the unit. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Remove the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder, just behind the front louvers. You may see a plastic pull tab handle. If so, that's the filter frame. Pull it straight down and out.

If you didn't find it there, look on the right hand side of the unit, just behind the louvers for what looks like a a flip open door. If you see that, flip the door open and remove the filter.

The filter can be cleaned using a vacuum cleaner or if it's really dirty, wash it in warm water and dish washing liquid. Thoroughly rinse and allow to completely dry, before reinstalling it. NEVER operate the unit without the filter in place.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Only 3 years old. Fan runs does not collect ANY water. #1 We have it set at Maximum #2 How exactly do we take it apart to clean filter? #3 Clearance space is ok #4 Temperature in basement ok please...


First turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF & Unplug the unit.

Depending on the model, (in both cases, the filter is behind the louvers on the front) by removing the water collection bucket and looking up into the water bucket cavity, just behind the louvers, for what will look like a plastic pull tab handle. If you see this, pull it straight down an out.
If the filter is not there, look on the right hand side of the unit, just behind the louvers. There will be a trap door that will flip open, There you will see the plastic frame of the filter. Pull it straight out to remove it.

The filter can be vacuumed or if it's really dirty, wash it in warm water and dish washing liquid, rinse thoroughly and allow it to completely dry, before reinstalling it. NEVER operate the unit with out the filter installed.

Hope this helped you.

Need to clean filter


Hazel, I assume you want to know how to find and remove the filter for cleaning.

The filter is located behind the front air intake louvers and depending on which model you have, the filter can be accessed one of two ways. Before you attempt to remove the filter turn the unit OFF and unplug it.

1. Remove the bucket from it's holder. Look up inside the bucket cavity, just inside the unit behind the louvers and you will see a tab type pull handle. This is the handle to the frame of the filter. Pull it down and out.

2. As you're facing the unit on the fight side just behind the louvers, there will appear to be a trap type door. Open this door and you will have access to pull the filter out.

You can clean the filter in one of two ways: Vacuum it or it it's really dirty, wash it in warm soapy (dish washing liquid), rinse and dry thoroughly. NEVER operate the dehumidifier without the filter in place. Doing so, can cause damage to the unit.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

Do these humidifiers have a filter that needs cleaning?


Yes, they do. The filter is located behind the louvers on the front. To remove it for cleaning, grasp the Filter Handle on the right side of the unit, on the same level as the louvers and pull it out. Clean the filter with a vacuum cleaner or luke warm water and a mild detergent. Thoroughly dry the filter before reinserting it.

If you have misplaced your Owner's Manual, I have included a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference. http://www.haieramerica.com/en/asset/product/4ba7175e54 Read over it and follow the suggested Routine Maintenance Guide.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

We have mold in the louvre casing. What's the best


You are very vague in your description but here is a method that applies to most situations: chlorine bleach diluted 50/50 with water in a spray bottle will certainly kill mold. Spray the area (if the louvers are removable, then get open access and spray all around. Wait 20 minutes, and spray again. If the surfaces are not highly porous, then this will eliminate the problem. How to avoid it from re-occuring can only be advised if you describe what you mean by louver casing and exactly where is the location .
