If it is not blowing out air from front grill then fan is burned out and needs replacing - $50 do-it-yourself (lots of disassembly) $100 for them to do it. Is it still in warranty? (1-2 years for fan/sensors))

How do i fix it so that it will collect water?


1st ck that your humidistat is set correcly and unit cycles the compressor on/off correctly ,Not just the cirulation fan running all the time , next ck your filters , clogged up filters wont allow air to pull thru unit , also are you sure room has enough moisture in it to pull water from, Most units wont draw a percievable amount of water out of air thats got less than 52%rh , as most homes target a 70%rH as normal

Unit is not collecting water and carpet is wet


Unplug it and let it dry out. Place it on old newspaper and start. Check the paper and look for the wet spot. That will let you know where the water is coming out of the unit. Check that area, it is probably a bad seal on the drain or a crack in the water container.

How do i check if its working correctly


If you want to give it the ultimate in-home test. Put the dehumidifier in the bathroom with the door closed and a hot shower running, but do not turn on the bathroom exhaust fan. Set the dehumidifier's controls as low as possible and let it run for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, return to the bathroom, turn the shower OFF and check the water collection bucket for water. The unit will probably be running anyway, when you return to the bathroom.

Remember, the lower the setting, the more the unit will run and collect water. Until it either reaches the humidity level you have it set for or the bucket is full and the unit automatically turns OFF

That's the best way to test a dehumidifier at home. Hope it helps you.
Please let me know.

Our Challenge 4151319 Dehumidifier has ceased to collect water. The fan operates perfectly. Can I get it serviced in Devon?


Hi,

First, make sure the humidistat isn't set too high by adjusting it to the lowest humidity setting and running it again.

Next, test the dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower running. If you don't see water collecting in the unit after several minutes, turn the unit off and clean all dehumidifier filters and coils. If, after adjusting the settings and cleaning the unit, you still don't see water collecting, you may have a refrigeration issue.

This situation will have to be addressed by a qualified technician.

Good luck
