SOURCE: Does not collect water

ok Carmo

first remove the back of the unit and turn it on. it sounds like the fan motor may not be working.there by making the dehum get hot. make sure your filter and coils are cleaned. you may need a new motor. if so buy a new motor and fan blade.be careful with the 5/16th nut holding the fan blade. the blade might look good but you have to check the hole where it rides on the motor shaft. if you into the hole it should look like the letter "D" because the motor shat is shaped that way.---good luck

SOURCE: My Danby DDR586R dehumidifier shouts hot air

Here is Danby's official response to a similar question on their FAQ page for Dehumidifiers:
https://www.danby.com/faqs.php?cat=12

Q) When the dehumidifier is operating, is it normal for the expelled air to be quite warm? We find that the dehumidifier is warming up the room noticeably (a finished basement).

A) The warm air that is being expelled from your dehumidifier is normal. When the unit is dehumidifying the compressor is working which causes the compressor to become quite hot. In order to avoid having the compressor overheat, air is drawn by the compressor at a rapid rate and the heat is then transferred to the air which must be expelled from the unit. The warm air will stop shortly after the unit has reached the desired humidity. This warm air should not change your room temperature by more than a degree or two.

SOURCE: fan runs ,coils are room temp. should they be hot

A dehumidifier is basically an air conditioner, so some coils should feel hot, the others should feel cold.

If no water is collecting, then the unit's compressor is not starting. Typically you have four possible failures causing this: the switch/wiring for the compressor has an open circuit, the motor-start capacitor for the compressor has failed, the compressor itself has failed, or all the refrigerant has leaked out.

If there is evidence that it is 'trying to start', but then clicking repeatedly, this can be a symptom that the refrigerant has leaked out, as some devices have a pressure switch to prevent compressor damage.

Also, a failed start-capacitor can also cause the click-click noise if the device has a current limiter switch on the compressor.

So the short answer is, it's broken :)

My Danby R410A dehumidifier is not collecting any water. Are my settings wrong perhaps? Its humid here so it should collect something? Help!


The compressor relay's purpose is to start the compressor. A faulty relay can result in the compressor failing to cycle on. The relay is accessed from the lower rear of the humidifier.

Before testing a compressor relay, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard. Also, if the compressor uses a capacitor, it must be discharged first to avoid the risk of electrical shock.



The compressor relay can be accessed by removing the terminal cover box. The cover is held on by tension or with a retaining clip.

The compressor on my Danby dehumidifier turns on for a few seconds, very weakly, and quickly cuts out. The fan and control panel are all working properly. The humidity is high enough for it to turn on...


Sounds like you've lost a lot of freon. Find the pump on your unit. Be careful, but after running it a while, touch the tube somewhere between the pump and cooling coils. If it is not hot then you have lost fluid. What happens is under normal working conditions the compressor would compress the freon making it hot, which then gets cooled by the radiator coils. In your case, there isn't enough fluid to compress to make it hot. Unfortunately, you need to have it refilled by a repair shop. Try your local A/C or HVAC shop. Don't be surprised if they can't refill with freon as it's bad for the ozone and being phased out.

No water collection and the coils are not cold? is there freon in the coils that need replacement


If the compressor is warm and running, chances are the charge is gone. There is no low pressure switch to shut off the humidifier. Don,t throw the unit out, take it to a repair shop to have it charged and fix the leak.
Good Luck!

Humidifier Runs but no water collected


Are you talking about a dehumidifier or a humidifier. If you are talking about a dehumidifier, it works by blowing air across a cooling coil causing condensation and the water will drip and pool. The cooling is caused by a compressor working like refrigerator, but using the effect to dehumidify. To check if the cooling coil is working there will be a metal can like in it with tubes in and out. One of the tubes should be warm(input) and the other tube should be cold, if not your compressor is not working. If freezing up, low freon. Check to see if the compressor shuts off very quickly, that would be too much freon. This is not user servicable. Now a humidifier works several different ways. One way is a fan with cloth belts rolling through water using evaporation to humidify. Another way is for a circular fan like on a motor to turn. It has a hollow piece into the water. It picks up water and then through centrifugal force aerates. One way is for a sonic humidifier. All the types have a problem with eventual calcification or mineral build up in the water handling paths. Lime-away or Concentrated Lemon Juice will dissolve this. The lemon juice is the most fun. It will turn your toilet bowl white and also remove rust stains from laundry...
