Your dehumidifier may be low on refrigerant. Seems cold may not be cold enough to reach the dew point to condense moisture from the air stream.

SOURCE: Frigidare Dehumidifier will not turn off

Pressure and temperature is directly related with refrigerants in the system. Ice building on part of the coils shows that the pressure inside the system is low and the system has lost some of its charge. Very low humidity with a low ambient temperature will also cause such a problem.

SOURCE: Problem with draining water through hose

I bought one of the FDL70S1 Frigidaire dehumidifiers today for my shop, and found that the $5 hose I bought to drain it through the floor wouldn't tighten down completely, allowing the hose to twist and wobble, a sure indication that it was not water tight. Simply adding a second washer, as described in another answer here, allowed me to tighten the hose sufficiently to produce a tight fit with no play between the hose and the dehumidifier. It hasn't leaked. I know it is a threads-per-inch issue, and I am stumped as to why Frigidaire would supply these units with a different thread pitch than the standard GHT (garden hose thread) 3/4" - 11.5 tpi. The threads on the unit appear to be 3/4 NPS - 14 tpi. Go figure!

Why does Frigidaire dehumidifier LAD704DUL has ice on the coils?


Hello Friend, thank you for your question!

I see that you have frost accumulating on the coils of your Frigidaire dehumidifier, LAD704DUL. Typically frost appears on coils either because your dehumidifier has been turned on recently or the room temperature is too low. Sometimes this is normal due to refrigerant rushing through the coils and usually it disappears within 60 minutes. However, if your dehumidifier is not removing moisture, then at this point your dehumidifier may possibly been experiencing a sealed system issue. Is your appliance still in warranty? If so, you might want to reach out directly to the manufacturer to determine the coverage on your dehumidifier and the procedures to any potential remedy in that regard. Hope this helps! - Z

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."

Sometimes my dehumifier (Goldstar) leaks. It is not full and the collecting bucket is fitted properly. I see that there is a flap around the pipe coming from the coils. Is it possible that this flap is...


Gary, most of the time, what you described is caused by 2 thing:

1. The cooling coils are icing up and not thawing as they should. This is usually caused by a dirty or clogged air intake filter. Solution: Turn the unit OFF, unplug it and remove and clean the air intake filter.

2. The drain hole or tubing, that drains water into the bucket is clogged. Solution: Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar that is flexible (NO wire coat hangers, though) and appropriately sized to fit into the hole or tubing. Carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to push it in, until to reach the bend in the tubing. You must gingerly work it past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. While slowly pulling it out, rotate (twist) the Zip Tie and as it reaches it's end, be prepared for some water to follow. That procedure will loosen any clogs.

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

Our dehumidifier has formed a sheet of ice amongst the coils and will no longer pull moisture from the air. The hole from which the water drips is completely iced over. It is 70degrees in the room and...


Turn the unit OFF and unplug it from the wall. Allow it to thoroughly thaw and remove the humidifiers cabinet to expose the cooling coils. Clean those thoroughly and coat with a very light coating of WD40. Reassemble the humidifier and turn it ON. Set your humidity control at 50% and allow the unit to run for at least one hour. Check for water collection in the bucket and for any signs of icing, after one hour. If water is in the collection bucket and no signs of icing, lower the humidity to 45% and continue. If you not any signs of icing, watch the unit, as you need to know if it automatically goes into defrost mode. The compressor should shut off, but the fan will continue to run until defrosting is completed. If it doesn't the auto defrost sensor has failed and will need to be replaced.

The filter (on some models) may be dirty or clogged. If so, clean the filter. For instructions on cleaning the filter.

Ice on coils


The short answer is "yes but maybe not for much longer!"

If the bucket is filling up with water it's probably working OK. Have you selected "continuous" instead of, say 60% ?

If the bucket isn't filling up with water then maybe the intake filter is clogged with fluff, preventing new moist air from getting to the cold coils and being extracted. Or maybe the fan isn't running?

I hope this info will be a useful starting point for you.

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge.
If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further.
Cheers, D
