The Main reasons that this will happen
1 - A bad run capacitor (silver or metal capacitor)
It’s either shorted, grounded or open.
If it’s shorted a lot of times it will bulge out, (sometimes slightly)
2 - A bad start kit ( plastic capacitor and Relay connected to it )
The capacitor is either shorted or open
The relay either has an open coil between terminals #1 and #5
Or the relay is stuck.
Any time you change the capacitor or relay you should change
the other, especially if they are over a year old.
3 - A loose, burnt or disconnected wire
4 - Wired wrong
5 Compressor is open (windings burnt open)
6 Low on charge not getting enough cooling back to compressor, (Feel top of compressor to see if it’s hot it shouldn‘t be)
7 Some compressors have a black plastic overload under the compressor cap which could be bad.

My Kenmore Dehumidifier wont turn on. There is power to it ,all the indicator lights are on, it just wont start. What's wrong?


Check the over fill switch in the tank. If this is stuck it thinks the tank is full and won't come on. After that your compressor may be bad or the starter for the compressor. The Dehumidifier is basically a small air conditioner that condenses moisture in the air then it drains into the tank.

I have two of these dehumidifiers. They won't go on automatically. I don't understand the settings. One of them won't stay on at all. It runs and then shuts off.


As per your problem, that the dehumidifier shuts offautomatically - If yourdehumidifier froze, the compressor will shut off automatically. Allow the iceto melt before emptying the tank and restart the dehumidifier. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

Fan runs, compressor switch seems to click but fails to start. Compressor is warn to the touch.


Hi,
The compressor is not starting, either the start components (relay and capacitor) have failed or the compressor is no good.

Hi, Usually if it is low it will start to freeze up but if you have a freeze control unit then the compressor just won't run much...
