Dehumidifier Problems and Dehumidifier Troubleshooting


If you have a dehumidifier that is not working correctly you have many things that could be causing it not to work. Here I will give some of the common reasons why it could be giving you problems.

0ebf56c.jpg
  1. The coils in the back are frosting up.

The dehumidifier works by drawing the room air over a very cold coil. The trick is to keep the coil as cold as possible to make it pull water out of the air by making it condensate on the cold coil. If this coil becomes too cold, then the water freezes on the coil. The freezing can happen if the air temperature in the room is too cool and does not keep the coil warm enough. Raising the humidifier up off of the floor onto a table can help. The air temperature is often a bit warm the higher up you get. Make sure that the filters are clean if your unit has one. Restricted air flow will make the problem worse. Providing more heat to the room will help also. Most units will not work in a room with temperatures below 68 degrees F.

  1. There is no air moving over the coils.

This can happen if the fan motor becomes stuck or burns out. If it becomes stuck you can sometimes get it running by working a lubricant into the bearings. WD-40 first, and then a good motor oil. If the motor burns out it will need to be replaced.

  1. The indicator light is on and the unit will not run.

This shows you that the bucket is full and needs to be dumped. If your unit is working correctly and the air is very damp you may only run a few hours before the bucket becomes full. This also can happen if the bucket is not seated in it’s spot correctly. There is a little switch that will not let the unit run if the bucket is not place exactly right.

  1. There is no water being produced.

This can happen if the air is very dry and no water can condensate from the air. Check the coils to see if they are cold to the touch, actually they should be very cold, like almost freezing. If not then the refrigeration system of the dehumidifier has gone bad. To repair that you will need a person certified to work on refrigerant systems with specialized equipment. In many cases the costs to repair the refrigeration systems will more than the cost to replace the whole unit.


This should give you a brief overview of the problems that you can have with a dehumidifier and some of the things that you can do to help get things working.

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."

The dehumidifier runs but does not remove moisture. The coils are cold but no frost. The inner coil is hot.

Machine works, but no water collecting


A dehumidifier is basically a cooler. The condenser coil on the outside should feel cold to the touch usually around 34 to 38 degrees, as air passes over the coils they collect the humidity in the air and it then drips down into a collector tray. If the coil does not feel cold it is ether a bad control switch not letting the cooler (compressor) turn on, low on freon, or burned out compressor

No moisture


check to see if the coils in the back are cold. if they are not, you either have no freon or the vent in the front is blocked and the condenser coils have no air flow to cool down. if they are, there might not be sufficient air flow across the evaporator coils or the air is already dry.

also, if the bucket switch isn't activated (due to the bucket not being in all the way), the fans will come on, but not the compressor.

Are you supposed to put water in the bucket of the dehumidifier or is the water that is in the bucket now from using the dehumidifier? Dumb question I am sure. But I am renting and have never used one...


The dehumidifier condenses the water on its coils and then it drips into the bucket. Dump out all of the water when the bucket is full. This model has a light that tells you when it is full. If the dehumidifier gets ice on the coils, it needs repair (low refrigerant).

I hope this helps.
