Dirty heat exchanger


the condenser (air intake) is blocked, most likely with dust, and the fan isn't passing enough air flow. either the fan is overworking and making noise or the compressor is overheating. if it can't cool down, the evaporator (cold coil) won't get cold enough to collect condensation. unplug the unit, take it outside, open the front, and hose the condenser down. if you can see light through it, it's ok. if not, spray some simple green degreaser on it and hose it down again after about 5 minutes. if you have a stiff bristled brush, use that, too.

KENMORE DEHUMDIFIER MODEL 580.51300100 DOES NOT RUN, NO POWER LIGHT AND NO FAN RUNNING ETC


First, check the source of the power to the unit, Has a circuit breaker in your home's circuit breaker panel been tripped? If so, unplug the unit, before resetting the circuit breaker. If that's not the case, check the outlet it's plugged into. It may be damaged or have a loose wiring connection. Be sure to turn the circuit breaker for that receptacle OFF, before removing the cover plate.

If all of the above checks out OK, check the water collection bucket, as it may need to be emptied and/or the bucket was not reinstalled properly or the float valve in the top of the bucket is stuck in the UP position, If so, jiggle the arm of the float valve to get to return to the DOWN position.

When reinstalling the bucket, be sure that it fits "squarely" into it's holder and makes firm contact with the bucket safety removal switch.

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

Emtied water out of tray and machine will not strart lights are all on the top of the machine is their a reset button i did set the tray with a hose to empty by itself don't believe that would...


If the hose is still connected and it's not clogged, the water shouldn't have filled the bucket.But, let's get back to emptying the bucket and reinstalling it and the unit won't start.

Several things can cause the this. The first and most notable is the bucket is not installed properly. When that happens the bucket safety removal switch, does not make firm contact with the bucket when it's reinstalled. If the hose is still attached, temporarily remove it and reinstall the bucket so that it fits "squarely" from top to bottom into it's holder. Make sure that is makes firm contact with the bucket safety removal switch on the back wall of the bucket holder. When installed properly the bottom of the bucket should not tilt down at the bottom.

The second most notable thing, is that the humidity level in the room is the same as whet you have the unit set to extract. In this case, the unit won't turn ON, until the surrounding humidity level rises. To test this, lower the humidity extraction level to 32%. If the bucket is installed properly and the Air Intake Filter is clean, the unit should start.

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

My dehumidifier full light is on but the unit is empty and the fan motor won't work. Is there a way to reset it? Is that why the fan motor won't work?


This is generally causes by improperly installing the water collection bucket after removing it to empty it. Or the float valve in the top ow the water bucket s stuck in the "UP" position. Some Maytag models have a float control that moves from left to right, depending on how much water you want it to collect, before having to empty it. It may be stuck in the center position and needs to be moved left or right.

When installing the bucket, be sure that it fits into the holder "squarely" from top to bottom and makes contact with the bucket removal safety switch at the back of the bucket holder. When installed properly, the bucket should not tilt down at the bottom.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Model 53701 purchased 2003. Hardly used. Has been on working fine. Shut it off to empty, pressed power to turn back on, & Nothing. Dead. It is not the plug Help barb


Barb, if thee water collection bucket is not properly installed or the float valve in the top of the bucket is stuck in the UP position, the unit will not turn back ON.

Remove the bucket, check the float valve's position (if it's stuck in the UP position, jiggle the arm of the float valve to make ir return to the DOWN position). When reinstalling the bucket, be sure it fits "squarely" from top to bottom into the holder, so the it will make contact with bucket safety removal switch. It should not tilt down at the bottom at all.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

WE have a gold star dehumidifier - 4838 AD 1002-6. I was emptying out the water this morning, and dropped the bucket on the cement. I think I did something to the auto shut off. Everyting looks ok,...


Sounds like you're going to need a new bucket & float, if you want to continue to use the dehumidifier in any thing other than continual hose draining mode.Here's a link to where you can find a replacement bucket w/ the float valve included. http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/dehumidifiers/partinfo.php?partsid=276540

Why does the full light stay on when the water container is empty?


It's generally cased by the bucket not being installed properly. Therefor, the bucket removal safety switch is not being triggered by the bucket, when it's reinstalled. Also, if you bucket has a float valve in the top of the bucket, it may be stuck in the 'UP' position. Is so, jiggle the float handle until it returns to the 'DOWN' position.

Reinstall the bucket so that it fits "squarely" into the holder from top to bottom. The bottom should not tilt down at all.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot & solve the problem.

Red light saying the water is full is always on, even when the tank is empty, Will not run. I've fiddled with the shitch to no avail


Peter, first turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Then remove the bucket and look in the top of it for a float valve. It may be stuck in the 'UP' position. Jiggle the arm of the float valve to get it to return to the 'DOWN' position. Then reinstall the bucket so that it fit's "squarely" into it's holder from top to bottom.

Doing the above, should solve the problem.

My dehumidifier says it is full but the bucket is empty. It will not work at all.


What you have described is usually caused by the bucket not being properly installed or if you have a model with a float valve in the top of the bucket , it is stuck in the UP position.

Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Remove the bucket from it's holder and check for a float valve. If you have a model with that feature, jiggle the float valve's arm, to get it to return to the DOWN position.

If you don't have a float valve, the bucket must be installed "squarely'" into it's holder from top to bottom, so that the bucket makes firm contact with the actuator switch. The switch resembles a trigger switch, which is visible when the bucket is removed.

Troubleshoot the above, should solve the problem.

The bucket full shutoff does not clear after it is emptied. The switch seems free to move and so does the float level arm. This is a 54501 dehumidifier.


If you have access to an ohm meter, I would UNPLUG the unit and then see if the switch is opening and closing. By the way, most of the switches have a clicking sound when then open and close.
