How to clean the filter


Good Afternoon Tad, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

First remove the bucket to reach the filter of your Frigidaire dehumidifier, FAD504DUD. When you locate the filter, pull it downwards. The filter can be clean by either washing it with clean water or using a vacuum cleaner extension hose. If you use clean water, please allow the filter to dry. Once the filter is reinstalled then replace the bucket. To extinguish the light simply press the FILTER button and your dehumidifier will resume normal operations.

Hope this helps!

It is three and a half years old and ices up even at warm temps.


The problem you're having is generally caused by the air intake filter needing to be removed and cleaned and/or the cooling coils need to be cleaned.

I assume you already know how to remove and clean the filter, since you've had the unit for 3 1/2 years, so I won't bore you by addressing that.

The coils can be cleaned with warm water and a mild dish washing detergent using a sponge or rag. Once they have been wiped down, rinsed and dried, apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

Hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Zenith dehumidifier P/N 3850A20500H. It was working, and now its not. I cleaned the air filter, and the fan spins just fine when I spin it by hand. Any suggestions? Thanks, Gary


Gary, if it's not collecting condensation, there are 5 basic, yet solvable reason s for this. One you have already taken care of - cleaning the filter.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If you have an analog unit
set the humidity extraction level knob to Maximum.

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.


I hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My GE basement dehumidifier is overheating. The bucket still collects water and the fan works, but the unit is putting out alot of heat. My dad is visiting and has taken the whole thing apart. Any...


Yes, the first suggestion is I hope your dad can get it back together without any parts left over (LOL). Over heating is generally caused by an clogged or dirty air intake filter. Simply removing it and vacuuming it or if it's really dirty, washing it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid will clean it. Rinse it thoroughly, shake off excess water and allow to dry completely. Never operate the unit without the filter in place. Doing so, can damage the unit.

Getting back to the heat for a moment and where you're using your dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers do generate heat, it's not abnormal. Operating it in a basement can cause it to over heat. This happens because the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level. Dehumidifiers struggle in temperatures below 65 degrees F (unless you have a Low temp unit, designed for basement applications). Raising the unit up off the floor, on to a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that an handle the weight of the unit, plus a full bucket of water, will generally resolve the problem.
Actually, a basement application , higher is better.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My Goldstar dehumidifer won't do anything. I'm trying to take the back grill off so I can clean filter, blades and whatever. I've removed every screw on the thing and can't the back to...


tia0418 - I'm sorry you're having such a problem with this. But, taking off the back, won't allow you access to the air intake filter. It's behind the louvers on the front of the unit.

You failed to mention which model Goldstar Dehumidifier you have, but most have the same features. If you remove the bucket and look up in the cavity where the bucket was removed, you should see what looks like a plastic pull handle. That's the handle for the filter frame. Pull that down and the filter and frame will come out. You then can clean the filter, by following the Owner's Manual Instructions.

The clamps that you referred to are just spring type clamps in a "V" shape. Push the top of the "V" together and the back should release from the cabinet. You can "carefully" use a flat bladed screw driver to do this, if necessary.

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

My whirlpool dehumidifier fan runs, but no water is being taken out of the air; cleaned the filter and still no change; dehumidifier was purchased in August 2008.


Hello,

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.

Take care.

Doesn't collect water, freezes on top


clean filter and then check the coil behind the filter to see if clean. Biggest things that freeze a unit are dirty filter or coil...or low on freon.

Hi Fixya: The Filter on my Danby DDR7009REE Room dehumidifier never seems to accumulate any dust. It is supposed to need to be cleaned every two weeks by vacuuming or soaking, but the filter is always...


How often does the unit run? Does the fan run when the unit is suppose to be running(as the fan pulls the air thru the filter). If every thing operates correctly and the filter is in the right location on the unit then all I can say is that you keep a clean house. Personally I only need to clean the air filter on my dehumidifier about once a summer. I wouldn't be overly concerned if it isn't getting very dirty.
