Have you read its manual? http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Edison/2020266a0220en.pdf

It says (p8):

Care and Cleaning
1. Filter
a. Remove the filter every two weeks based on normal operating conditions.
b. To remove the filter, remove Bucket then pull filter downwards.
c. Wash the filter with clean water then dry.
d. Re-install the filter, then replace Bucket.
2. Cabinet
a. Dust cabinet with an oil-free cloth, or using a damp cloth.
b. Vacuum grill using brush attachment.
3. Water Bucket

I recommend you to use a mix 75% water, 25 % vinegar. To clean its water bucket.

Esco Oasis 2700L dehumidifier ices up. Is there a filter to be cleaned and if so, how to I get to it?


Hi,

The most common cause of frost and ice buildup on a dehumidifier is because the unit is operating in temperatures that are too cold. Many dehumidifiers are not equipped to run at temperatures below 65 degrees Fahrenheit.
To fix this problem, Position the dehumidifier in an area where there is at least one foot of clearance around the unit in order to allow for proper air circulation during its operation. Close all windows, doors and other outside openings to make sure your unit isn't attempting to remove moisture from areas outside of the immediate room. Determine the temperature of the room by checking a nearby thermostat or by using a hand-held thermometer.

Check the filter for dirt and buildup. Unplug the unit from the electrical source and check the filter by opening the filter compartment. If the filter is dirty, it will restrict airflow through the unit and lead to freezing. Soleus recommends lightly vacuuming the surface of the filter to remove dirt. The filter also can be washed in warm water if it is extremely dirty. Once clean, place the filter back in its compartment. Allow for the ice to melt and then restart your dehumidifier.

I have my Edison 40 running at the highest setting (lowest humidity) and it isn't lowering my humidity. The hose to my floor drain emits only a tiny drop once in a while. Is there something for me to...


Ronald, first,check the air in take filter for dirt and/or clogs. Also check your drain hose for a blockage, as well as the hose connection on the unit. In addition, if the cooling coils are dirty, this will cause the unit to strain to keep up. You should be able to access them, after you remove the air intake filter. Clean them with mild soap and warm water. Rinse and thoroughly dry them, before applying a very light coat of WD40. CAUTION: BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY SERVICE ON THE UNIT, TURN THE MASTER ON/OFF SWITCH TO OFF AND UNPLUG THE UNIT.

I assume you have one of the older Edison 40 Dehumidifiers, that doesn't have an LED readout. And this is where it can sometimes get confusing, when setting the humidity extraction level. Maximum doesn't always indicate the maximum extraction level. And in your case, I believe if you set it on Minimum, you would get better results. Always allow a minimum of 12" clear air space all around the unit, while in operation.

If, after you troubleshoot the above things and want to do a good in home test of the unit. Move the unit to the bathroom, plug it it in, turn it ON and set it for Minimum. Turn the shower ON hot enough to generate steam. Do Not turn the bathroom exhaust fan ON. Close any window(s) that may be open. As you exit the bathroom, close the door. Wait 15 - 20 minutes before returning to the bathroom. Then turn the shower OFF and allow the dehumidifier to run additional 5 minutes. Turn the unit OFF and check the bucket for signs of water. If you find some, the unit is working as it should.

If you find n water in the bucket. The unit's compressor probably needs a recharge of refrigerant gas.As the level may be low.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Dehumidifier runs but does not collect water


you must also clean the fins on the front. remove the plastic case and use compressed air or coil cleaner to clean out the dust and dirt on the condenser coils. if there is not enough air flow, the freon will not cool enough.

It's possible that the coil has become extremely dirty. It can be cleaned, but to do it well requires removing the external housing to better access the coil. I had a similar problem where the dehumidifier ran and the coil became quite cold but would not condensate. A thorough cleaning has it working as good as ever. Compressed air is not sufficient to remove the dirt accumulation, it must be physically scrubbed or rinsed from the surface. I used a rag pulled back and forth to scrub between the coils in areas where I couldn't reach to dislodge the grime with my fingers.
