Sounds like you need to replace your humidistat control. this is just like a thermostat on an air conditioning system, except inside of sensing temp and turning off, it senses humidity and turns off.

Dehumidifier freezes up


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FDF50S, is freezing up. I see that the compressor does not shut off, causing ice to build up on the coils, rather than water draining off. What can cause this is your dehumidifier has been turned on recently. This is normal due to refrigerant rushing through the coil. Frost will usually disappear within 60 minutes. Another cause is if the room temperature is too low or too high. Your appliance is designed to operate between 41 degrees F and 96 degrees F. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Tip

Meaco dd8l fault light.


Not long after my unit ran out of warranty it developed a fault. Less then a minute of being turned on the double fan light would begin to flash and the unit would shut down. The filters were regularly maintained as recommended my the manufacturer. I am not one for just throwing it out and buying a new one, so I stripped it down.
i noticed the dissident wheel was not turning so I removed the motor, stripped it down and re greased the plastic gears within. Then I noticed the dissident wheel itself was catching on something (motor still removed) when I manually turned it. After taking the dissident wheel off I could clearly see the plastic housing behind the wheel was melted and snagging the metal 'spokes' on the dissident wheel. The area is located directly behind the heater unit.
after flattening the plastic down smooth, the unit is now working.

I have concluded the reason this may have happened is the unit being switched off before its shut down process had finished, meaning the metal 'spoke' was stopped next to the plastic with the heater still hot enough to heat the spoke enough to melt the plastic behind causing a snag for the wheel.

so I think the shut down procedure is quite important before turning it off at the wall.

I have two of these dehumidifiers. They won't go on automatically. I don't understand the settings. One of them won't stay on at all. It runs and then shuts off.


As per your problem, that the dehumidifier shuts offautomatically - If yourdehumidifier froze, the compressor will shut off automatically. Allow the iceto melt before emptying the tank and restart the dehumidifier. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

My dehumidfier won't shut off. I check everything out and it's good but it just won't shut off it keep running.


It may be, that you have it running in continuous mode, rather than timed mode. Also, most dehumidifiers fans will run almost continually, to keep the air moving, so the humidity sensor can pickup and increase in humidity, if there is one.

If the above doesn't seem to be the problem with your unit, turn The Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 12-15 minutes. This will give the electronics time to reset themselves, if necessary.

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

I have a 2yr old gold star dehumidifer #dh305y6 it won't turn on power is good at plug. held in red bucket switch manually.but it still won't kick on.


If you can remove cabinet, check glass fuse on power supply board.

After that it is probably the power supply board or the control board - see a service department

Goldstar dehumidifier model DH305Y6 is there an outlet on this model for a hose so can drain into sump pump?


I have a Goldstar dehumidifier, Model DH305Y6. I bought it about 5 years ago at a local Walmart. During the summer I run it in the basement, here in south-central Pa. When it was brand new it worked very well, for about 2 yrs. Then it began turning on & off very irregularly. At first I thought it was the sensor on the front of the coils. So I moved it to the lower left side of the coils, and had the same results. The other day the water heater in the basement developed a leak. About 300 gals. of water covered the floor. After sumping/wet-vac'ing down to a wet carpet, I pulled out the dehumidifier and plugged it in,(the filter was cleaned before put away last summer). It began its on/off cycling again. It runs for about 2-3 mins., then shuts off for about 5-10 mins. So, I took the On/Off switch apart and read the resistance. It read 48k, for the 50k switch. I turned the switch all the way left to all the way right and it went from 48k, down to about 8k. The two wires to the switch were attached to the #2 and #3 poles,(only 3 poles). I did some testing, then removed the wires and re-soldered them to the #1 and #3 poles. I put everything back together, and now it works. It runs constantly, but it works/runs just fine. I need to get the basement dry, so I will let it run until the job is done. In the Spring I will get a new 50k potentiometer,(on/off switch), and see if that works. I will post results if I remember to.

Dh305y6 won't start tried different outlets won't start


Nothing on display? Remove panels and get to circuit board. Look for loose solder connection on the fuse, etc. Resolder any bad connections. Then turn it on. Let me know.

Take cover off. First check the fuse on the circuit board. If it's blown replace it. That should get the motor running, the motor might be or is going out. If the motor is bad you'll have to replace the motor. If the fuse is good and the motor is good, unhook the wires on circuit board that go to the humidity control switch. If the unit comes on with the humidity control switch unhooked, you'll have to replace the humidity control switch. Sears has them for about $11.50. Hope this helps.
