Question about Maytag M7DH45B2A Dehumidifier

Open Question

My dehumidifier says full but the bucket is empty?

I am thinking that something is clogged. I made sure that the filter was cleaned. Unit will turn on but not run because the button for full keeps beeping. I have made sure that it is reseated properly and completely empty.

Take out the bucket and locate the "full" switch in the upper right of the area where the bucket slides in. With the unit on, try pushing it in and see if the "full" light goes off.
If so, that switch is fine - if not try to adjust if and replace it if required. Those are generally micro-switches and firms like Radio Shack would have if your appliance parts dealer does not.

I have a delongji DEM 10 dehumidifier and it keeps switching to pause, I have cleaned filter switched off for a while but it still won't come on


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Unless you are licensed and qualified professional, do not try to repair a dehumidifier by yourself. If your unit is running constantly yet there is no water in the tank, try lowering the temperature control. If the problem persists, there may be a problem within the refrigeration system. You may need to pull the filter and clean it. Also try wiping off the unit itself. When the water tank is full, the unit will shut off and will not run until the tank is emptied. The dehumidifier shuts off by a safety switch in the back of the unit. If the switch is not working properly, you may try manually pressing the button or slightly bending the switch.
    Motor If the fan motor is damaged or will not work, no cool air will be coming out of the dehumidifier. The unit, however, may still run. You may need to replace the motor. If the coils in the back of the dehumidifier constantly freeze, try turning off the unit for an hour or re-locating the unit to a higher position to allow the room to heat up. If your water tank is constantly full and you are emptying it on a daily basis, you may have a water leak somewhere in the room with the dehumidifier.

    Danby Dehumidifier DDR7009REE leaking water, bucket not full


    Hi there,
    The unit may need cleaning. You can contact Danby customer service (1-800-263-2629) to get in contact with a technician.
    There may be something clogging the passage to the bucket and the water is finding the path of least resistance.
    As well, it is important to remember to clean the filter once a month.

    The motor is still running fine, but the dehumidifier is no longer extracting water from the air and the water container is not filling.


    John, there are 5 basic, yet solvable reason 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.

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

    Prt of the problem may be a dirty or clogged air intake filter.

    Turn the unit OFF and unplug, it before removing the filter to check and clean it.
    You can ether vacuum it or if it's really dirty & clogged, wash it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly, shake off access water and allow it to dry completely, before reinstalling it.
    Never operate the unit without the filter in place. As this could damage the unit.

    Plug the unit back in and turn it ON. Try lowering the humidity extraction level now, using the arrow down button. For a very damp, humid basement application 35% is a good setting to start with for several days.

    Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

    Scott, first make sure that tere is still electric power to the unit. Check the circuit breaker for that outlet to see if it's been tripped. Or perhaps, there's a loose wire connection in the receptacle. If all that checks out as good. If the circuit breaker has been tripped unplug the unit, before resting the breaker. Also, check the water collection bucket to see if it's full. If it is, empty it and properly reinstall it in it's holder

    Just stopped working. When I turn unit on the power light comes on for about 2 seconds then goes off, nothing else happens. Any ideas?


    It may simply be that the water collection bucket is not installed properly or the air intake filter is clogged.

    Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Remove the air intake filter and clean it, if necessary. While the unit is unplugged and OFF, remove the water collection bucket and reinstall it. Making sure that the bucket fits "squarely" from top to bottom, in the bucket holder. It must make contact with the bucket safety removal switch, to activate the unit. Once you have reinstalled the bucket, make sure the bottom of the bucket is not tilting downward.

    If you cleaned the filter, be sure it is totally dry, before reinstalling it. Then plug the unit back in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and if everything was done correctly, the unit should start and run. DO NOT OPERATE THE UNIT, WITHOUT THE AIR INTAKE FILTER INSTALLED.

    Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

    My machine is running but no water is being collected. The model number on my machine says DE N 500 P


    Several things can cause your problem:

    Dirty or clogged air intake filter. Remove and clean the filter according to the Owner's Manual instructions.

    Dirty coolant coils. Clean and dry the coolant coils.

    The humidity extraction level is set to high. Lower the level to 35%

    Not enough free air space around the unit. Maintain at least 12" of air space around the entire unit.

    The ambient air temperature at floor level is to cold (between 40 - 60 degrees F). Raise the unit up off the floor onto something sturdy enough to handle the weight (including a full tank of water) and the vibration during operation. This happens frequently in basement applications.

    Depending on the age of the unit, the refrigeration coolant may need to be recharged.

    The humidity sensor has failed and needs to be replaced.

    All of the above are where you start troubleshooting and hopefully solving the problem.

    Dehumidifers runs but doesn't pull the water out air. I purchased this at Wal mart on 2/23/07.


    There a couple of things you can do to hopefully solve this problem. Most of the time, the air intake filter is clogged and needs to be cleaned. In addition, the humidity level you have it set to, must be in direct correlation to the humidity in your home. Keep that in mind when setting the extraction setting.

    Before you attempt to remove the filter, be sure you turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and then unplug the unit from the wall outlet.

    If by the slim chance cleaning the filter doesn't solve the problem, the unit's compressor may need to be recharged with cooling refrigerant. This is something that is best left to a pro or a service center in your area.

    Hope this helps you to continue to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

    Unit turns on for about a few seconds and shuts off. bucket full light stays on. Micro-switch is ok what else could that be


    Possibly., the unit turning ON vibrates the bucket in such a way, that it loses contact with the safety switch and the unit shuts OFF. If the dehumidifier is not sitting level, it would cause the bucket to shake more than usual. In addition, if you haven't cleaned the filter recently, I would suggest that you do that. A dirty or clogged filter causes the unit to struggle and if it is to much to handle, it will cause it to shut OFF. Before you attempt remove the filter, turn OFF the Master ON/OFF Switch and Unplug the unit. Be sure you do it in the order I listed.

    Hope this helps you further to troubleshoot and solve the problem.
