SOURCE: Is there a recall on this product? My compressor

Your description indicates a loss of refrigerant in the dehumidifier. The metal heat exchanger above the water collector should become cold when the compressor is running - if it does not, your dehumidifier likely has lost it's refrigerant charge. You will have to take it to a certified (refrigerant handling) technician to repair. It may make more sense to replace with a new dehumidifier.

Check the CPSC website for dehumidifier recalls. they will have details of the brands/models/serial numbers of recalled units.

SOURCE: I have a dh504el dehumidifier it started to smoke and could see smoke coming out of it. The fan motor is junk will not run anymore. All the wires in the top of the compressor unit melted coating off

I would guess that unless it is stilol under warranty. To repair the unit will cost more than to replace it. I did not find any recalls. If you want to get parts here is a link.
Hope this helps.

Dh25 the cooling coils get frozen,the appliance sill working even the canister is full.


The normal operating temperature is above 65 F. Much below unless specially designed for low temperature they will freeze up.
They have a frost detector and will defrost but it is very inefficient and not practical. My experience they eventually form a block of ice on the coils. They heat the room in the process so in a moderate area they can raise the temperature and provide needed circulation.

In the past where the temperature is cool I have faced the output into a corner, raised it off the floor and once the unit got started the heat created from the unit kept the air warm enough to avoid freezing up the coils.

Always check for recalls. Some models have had problems and have been recalled. See the link below.

How do I determine reason that my Danby Dehumidifier isn't cycling on to compressor for more than 3-4 seconds at a time? Fan always runs but compressor only kicks in for 3-4 seconds then back off.


I would say low on gas or bad switch/thermostat.
The compressor probably has a shutoff for low freon. You would need a set of gauges to check for that.
Bad thermostat? You'd need a ohm meter.
User error? What kinda settings or controls do you have on the control panel?
There was a recall on these in 2014 for catching on fire.
