Whirlpool dehumidifier icing up

Should I try to take the cover off and clean where the ice builds up? At first I thought the temp was too low 70's but now that it has gotten real hot & humid outside it still is icing up.

What is causing ice build up on the coil bottom left? Whirlpool model AD50GEUSW dehumidifier?


Ice buildup is most often caused by low freon. Is the unit 10 years old or more? Might need a recharge. Turn it off and let it thaw then back on. If it ices up again, it likely needs a recharge.

There was a build-up of a snotty white substance in the hose which blocked it from draining. Any idea what this substance could be?


Hi,
That is an Algae that will grow in damp places... like the dehumidifier hose...
No major problem... just clean the hose with fresh water or replace the hose...

Ice forming on top front part of unit


usually, ice build up is caused by low refrigerant levels (a dehumidifier is essentially an air conditioner). depending on the unityou may or may not be able to service it. Some of these systems are sealed at the factory and a pierce valve is needed to add refrigerant to the system.

Coils icing


the unit either has dirty evaporator coils and this will make them ice up,or the unit is low on refrigerant/freon,try cleaning the whole unit of dirt and dust first,then you may need to install a saddle tap on the sealed system and add some refrigerant/freon as these systems seem to leak more often than other sealed systems

When do you use the dehumidifier?


In areas with poor circulation and humidity over 80%.
If the room temperature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
I out mine over the floor drain.
Turn off and it will defrost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifiers work below a room temp of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensor from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.

Dehumidifier


Check the coils for icing. You may need to remove a cover to see them. IF the temp is much below 65-70 degrees, there is a good chance of icing. Take it upstairs or where it is warm and try running it to see if it removes moisture. If it does, it is probably icing. Raise it off the floor as the temp is higher towards the ceiling. Hope this helps

Really thick ice on back of dehumidifier


It is now frozen because the humidistat, which controls the on/off cycle, is starting to age and forgetting to turn off the dehumidifier. Try removing the humidistat and, using compressed air, blow it out thoroughly of any dust. Then spray the rotary control area, including electrical parts, with WD-40. Then, blow dry again with the compressor and try again.
