Sounds like the compressor is inoperative. Most, if not all new units have no means of recharging the freon if it leaks out. If the coils are not cooling, the compressor is not operating and the unit will not dehumidify.

I have a GE AHH50LMG1 dehumidifier. It is less than 2 years old. When I turn it on, it displays 20% RH. The fan runs but the compressor does not kick in. I assume that is because it thinks the humidity...


Hi,
It could be just the sensor, but not likely... many times it is the circuit board that goes bad, making the repair almost prohibitive.. as the circuit board, if you can find one, is often half or more the cost of a new unit...
But you are correct... if the unit thinks the humidity is 20% then it will not bring on the compressor...that is what is happening...

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.

Year 2005 cycling fan and compressor


Your unit is probably operating in defrost mode. When you use a dehumidifier in a cold room, the condensing coils can freeze water. The unit senses this and thus stops the compressor until the water frozen on the coils melts. Then it resumes its cycle. This is a problem you will have during the winter months. It makes the operation of the unit inefficient, but this is otherwise normal behavior.

4 year old dehumidifier does not extract water


It may have lost its charge of refrigerant. Check the warranty for sealed system, or if it is just the compressor which is covered. There are coils above the bucket area. Check for possible frost on only part of the coil. It is a sign that it has a leak at some point and has lost its refrigerant charge. If it lost all the gas there will be no frost nor condensation on the coils. Four years old and $75 bucks, its your choice.

Blown Fuse on Compressor of Dehumidifier


That part is a thermal protector. If you can't find it at Radio Shack they should be able to direct you to an appropriate electronics store.
