Have a Frigidaire Dehumidifier FDD25S1. It is taking moisture out of the air just fine but is heating up our basement so that no one wants to stay down there anymore. Is this normal?

SOURCE: Dehumidifer stopped collecting moisture, blows air w/ empty tank

Possible cause it's out of gas.

you might have to get a refridgeration mechanic to regas it, or/and fix any gas leaks

SOURCE: what could be wrong with my dehumidifier it runs

does the air feel humid? could be the humidity level dropped and there isn't any moisture in the air. the air passing over the evaporator coil needs to be laden with moisture for the dehumidifier to work.

SOURCE: I have a dehumidifier that runs but does not pull

There are a couple of things you can check for and they are; First of all, when you say the unit is running you may only be hearing the fan run. The compressor may possibly be not running(if it isn't running you will have no dehumidification as a dehumidifier is really nothing more than a small airconditioner.(cooling a coil for the moisture in the space to condense to). Second, The space may be to cool for the unit to run and dehumidify well, The space should at least be 65 degrees or warmer. Third, the system may have a leak and it is out of or low on refrigerant(freon). Depending on what you paid for the unit and if it has any remaining warranty(parts only-labor not covered) if the system is out of refrigerant or if the compressor is bad it probably isn't worth the cost to repair.

Unit comes on briefly then kicks out bucket without getting any water out of the air. Basement is very wet


Hello friend, I appreciate your post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire dehumidifier is shutting off and on without removing any moisture from the air. I would recommend trying a different outlet within your basement and adjusting the setting to see if that would help. Additionally, try to turn the unit on continuous drain to see if it pulls any moisture out of the air. If your appliance continues to shut on and off I would reach out to the manufacturer to see if they could assist with any additional resolution. Hope this information proves helpful. -Matt

Why does my haier dehumidifier leak on bottom


Are you emptying the pan regularly? A dehumidifier takes the moisture out of the air by condensing it into a catch pan usually located at the base of the unit.

Don, unless your dehumidifier is a Low temperature model, that very well may be the problem.
The air temp in a basement at floor level is colder than that chest level. Dehumidifiers don't work well at temperatures at 40 degrees F or less. Raising the unit up off the floor on to a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that is strong enough to handle it's weight, plus a full tank of water, will generally solve the problem. The higher up you can safely put it, the better. Also, lower the humidity extraction level to 35%. As 50% is just not low enough in a basement application.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem.

Kenmore 54501 turns on but nothing happens in my damp basement


A dehumidifier heats and cools the air to remove moisture. Most are like a small air cond. The Condenser coil is right in front of the evap.coil. So the compressor may not be coming on. Does it sound the same as before? It may be low on freon. You will have to get in there and listen and feel the lines at or near the compressor, Learn how to get down in there to the compressor. Run it for 10 Mins. unplug it, open it up, and feel the lines. Some lines should be or can be HOT to the touch. Some should be cool. The smaller the line the hotter it should be, and the compressor should be warm (to hot) to the touch. repost for more info.

Works well but


Yup, they eat energy.

An electric dehumidifier includes a refrigeration cycle that is very similar to a window AC units and refrigerators. They cool the air in the basement to condense and collect water and remove humidity, heat the air as a required consequence of the refrigeration cycle and dump it back to your basement.

Two sources of humidity in basements include warm outside air that naturally cools due to below grade earth contact and water passing from the ground though the floors and walls and evaporating into the basement. Dehumidifiers do most of the work in the summer when higher temperatures outside enable air to hold more water content.

In the winter, cooler outside air contains less moisture by weight eventhough it may be raining and the relative humidity in basement will be less because the air is warmed relative to the outside. The lower moisture content in the winter also absorbs the water passing through the walls and floor.

From an energy perspective, you may want the humidity set NOT below 50%. This will keep humidity below the level mold desires, but prevents the dehumidifier from doing more work and eating more energy than needed. A cheap battery powered temp/humidy meter left in your basement will help. Sources that include the "mold triangle" (temperature, water & food) often separate fact from expensive hype.

If the dehumidifier doesn't keep up, consider adding a moisture barrier to the basement walls and floors such as Dry-lock and floor paints to ****** moisture entry. Moisture barriers act very similar with water as insulation does with heat. They don't eliminate the need for a dehumidifier, but they reduce the work they do and energy they eat.

Heats up basement


Dehumidifiers and how they work
Heat pump dehumidifiers

Dehumidifiers use a heat pump (similar to an air conditioner's heat pump) or chemical adsorbents to remove moisture from the air without cooling the air.

A heat pump dehumidifier uses a fan to draw indoor air over a heat exchange coil. The coil is almost freezing. The water in the air condenses on the coil and is drained. A second heat exchange coil reheats the air, which the dehumidifier exhausts into the room.

A heat pump dehumidifier dumps heat lost from the compressor and fan motors into the air. It returns to the indoor air the heat generated by the dehumidifier turning water vapour to liquid. I got this off the internet

Fdk45p1 dehumidifier


Has anyone figured out how to get a 25-pint Frigidaire dehumidifier (model FDD25S1) to put water out the drain hose for continuous draining instead of into the bucket? It appears to be impossible to connect the hose in a way to avoid water leaking into the bucket.
