SOURCE: Kenmore model # 25800-25801 Error code E3 ?

You can try cleaning the humidity sensor, which is on a circuit board
housed in a nylon clip attached to the cooling coils.
The sensor is in a plastic clip, which can be opened up and cleaned.
Some report success. Didn't work for me.

I ended up rewiring the unit so that a 5v control
line from the lower relay board goes through the SPDT bucket full switch,
turning on the control board when full (so it beeps), but otherwise
enabling the compressor and fan. The fan and compressor
are controlled by relays, which are driven by a ULN2003AN
relay driver. I fed the empty side of the full bucket switch back into
the relay driver to turn on the compress and the fan on high.
I plan to put a dehumidistat in series with this control line;
now it just runs till the bucket is full. A Broan DH100W dehumidistat
is 20 bucks. Could also put in a rotary switch to control the fan speed,
but for me high is enough.

I think this machine is made by Goldstar for Kenmore and Delonghi.
Stuff is just made to break and through away these days, which is a shame.

Frigidaire dehumidifier shuts off with error code EC


Usually that is a sign that your dehumidifier is low in coolant. Could be something more serious, but usually would require to be charged back up (and sealed to prevent coolant from leaking out).

My Humidifier is 2 years old. It worked fine and now there is an "EC" code on panel


Unit malfunction. Dehumidifiers are designed to function within specific temperate ranges, usually between 50 and 80 degrees. Make sure that the ambient temperature of the room is within the range of your dehumidifier. Try not to run it continuously.

EC appears and it doesn't draw water


I contacted CE North America customer service regarding this issue for same unit. They suggested disconnecting for 10 minutes, then reconnecting, turning unit on, and changing settings and run fan on HIGH or TURBO until the EC code goes away. This didn't help with my unit. If this doesn't work, there is no repair provided. Customer Service recommended returning unit to purchase location if under warranty (1 year), however a copy of the original purchase receipt is required. Suggest a call to Customer Service Center at 866-915-1212.

My Kenmore Elite Dehumidifier model 42-99701 runs but does not cool enough to collect water. Not a drop. found this page where I can order parts but I don't know what part I need to replace. Please help....


Dehumidifers are cheaply made and most likely it has formed a refrigerant leak. It would cost more to repair than to replace with a new one. They are basically a disposable appliance.

I have Kenmore dehumidifier 580.54701 70. Connected to external drain. Showing 01 code in humidity setting screen. Will not run. Approximately one year old.


Your model Kenmore Dehumidifier, I believe was was made my Haier, for Sears under the Kenmore name. In which case "01" indicates a circuit failure shutdown and needs to be repaired by an authorized Sears service technician. As it may still be in warranty.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.
