Check the settings. Make sure that the humidity setting is at 35%.

In the cooler fall weather, the dehumidifier will not collect much water when the temperature is close to 65 degrees in the area where the dehumidifier is located. Also, if the relative humidity in the space is not significantly above 45% then you will not collect much water. Check these conditions.

The image below shows how to access the internal components of this dehumidifier. Unplug the dehumidifier and check the front and back grill for debris. Clean these parts if necessary. Check the evaporator for a frost pattern. If the compressor runs but you see no frost pattern on the evaporator, then you could have a sealed system problem. This type of failure is normally covered by the 5 year sealed system warranty.

Ellen, there are 5 basic, yet solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2..

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If you have an analog unit
(no LED screen), set the humidity extraction knob on Maximum.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

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

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.
