How do I fix leaking dehumidifier?


units that leak some times are a total loss but not allways , sometimes its just not being used on level surface (water seeks level allways) , there are lots of ports inside that need to be kept clean for all the units water to drain out , look inside with a flashlight to see if any buildup is obvious that might be cleaned off ? if not a last effort is to remove cover to see 1st hand what cause is(remove power plug 1st) , rust /mold/dust are all common things to find inside that affect units operation

After an hour, the refrigeration unit begins to freeze up. Condensation appears on top of the dehumidifier cabinet. I have eliminated all obstructions to air flow, including the filter. What can I do?


Hi,

The most common cause of frost and ice buildup on a dehumidifier is because the unit is operating in temperatures that are too cold. Many dehumidifiers are not equipped to run at temperatures below 65 degrees Fahrenheit.
To fix this problem, Position the dehumidifier in an area where there is at least one foot of clearance around the unit in order to allow for proper air circulation during its operation. Close all windows, doors and other outside openings to make sure your unit isn't attempting to remove moisture from areas outside of the immediate room. Determine the temperature of the room by checking a nearby thermostat or by using a hand-held thermometer.

Check the filter for dirt and buildup. Unplug the unit from the electrical source and check the filter by opening the filter compartment. If the filter is dirty, it will restrict airflow through the unit and lead to freezing. Soleus recommends lightly vacuuming the surface of the filter to remove dirt. The filter also can be washed in warm water if it is extremely dirty. Once clean, place the filter back in its compartment. Allow for the ice to melt and then restart your dehumidifier.

This dehumidifier continues to run after it is full, spilling water out of the full tank. How can I fix this?


Diane, the float valve in the left top of the bucket (it's styrofoam) is stuck and can't shut the unit off when the bucket is full. To help you solve this, I am providing a link to your Owners Manual that will help you with this problem You can download and print the manual for future reference Be sure to turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit, before attempting to solve this problem.

Soleusair showing signs of limited life


If the room temp is below 60 degree, coils may be frozen in block of ice - see if you can see into grills.

If frozen, unplug and set in tub or over drain.

Check to see that it is not set on CONT (continous) as it will run but with low indoor humidity in winter, not have mosture to extract.

Looks like 1 yr warranty so if a coolant system problem and more than 1 yr old, not worth repairing, but try:
