My dehumidifier does not seem to be working properly. I can't find the manual to tell me what the settings should be. Would appreciate your help. It is a DeLonghi DE400P. Thanks Shirley


What is the specific problem? Is no water being collected by the dehumidifier or do you have another issue?

Make sure that the dehumidifier is in a room in the operating temperature range (at or above 44 degrees F). Make sure that the room door and windows are closed and that the room is not larger than 2200 square feet. Make sure that the collection bucket not full and is properly seated in the dehumidifier. Check and clean the air filter on the dehumidifier. (Vacuum the filter or rinse under running water three times. Then wait until dry to replace it in the dehumidifier.) Look at the coils of the dehumidifier. If you have ice on the coils, defrost the unit (turn off, unplug and wait for it to melt). If the ice reforms quickly, you may have a leak in the coolant system. Then the unit needs repair.

Next make sure that you have good air flow around the dehumidifier and that the desired humidity set point is lower than the humidity of the room.


Retrevo has the manual available: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Delonghi-DE400P-Heating-Cooling-and-Air-manual/id/19269bh037/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to download the PDF.

I hope this helps.

If I put this in my basement because of all the rain we've had, what should I set the knobs on? I don't have a manual


Here is a direct link to a user's manual for that model:

http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/114658.pdf


To view the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.

You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents.
You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.
Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.

You can just run the unit at the stock settings initially and then after a day or two of operating, you can adjust the desired humidity level up or down if required. If you find that your coils are freezing up with ice, then the unit is running a little too much for the ambient conditions. You can always try adding a little heat to the room if necessary since a dehumidifier will not work well if the room is too cold.

Please comment back here to this page if you have any details to add, have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck.

Humidifier gets ice on top of cabinate. It still produces water.


Most dehumidifiers have a defrost cycle that they run through, as needed. But, apparently, your is not functioning. Eventually, yours will stop collecting moisture, if this continues. In the interim, I would suggest turning the Master OnN/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit until it thaws. While it's unplugged, remove and clean the air intake filter on the front of the unit. If it's clogged it causes the unit to strain and may cause it to ice up. Once the filter is clean and the unit is un-thawed. Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set the controls as you normally do. Hopefully, that period of being unplugged will have allowed the unit to reset itself and work properly.

I have included a link to your Owners Manual that you can download and print for future reference.

aire.com/index.php?option=com_rubberdoc&view=doc&id=436&format=raw">http://www.comfort-
aire.com/index.php?option=com_rubberdoc&view=doc&id=436&format=raw

If the above link fails go to the following link below and click on Owner Manual, near the top of the page.

aire.com/room-air-conditioners/149-portable-dehumidifiers/122-bhd-301-g">http://www.comfort-aire.com/room-air-conditioners/149-portable-dehumidifiers/122-bhd-301-g

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

My lg dehumidifier is collecting ice on top and no water is collecting in waste. Is it dead? this is a new problem but machine is not old


Sounds as if the air filter may be clogged, which causes the coils to freeze. Unplug the unit and allow it to thaw. Once thawed, follow the Owners Manual"s instructions on accessing, removal and cleaning of the air filter. That should solve your problem.

I replaced the control board FD2518-020, which included the temperature sensor that mounts to the side of the condenser. The condenser now freezes over and the unit continues to run. I experimented and...


Was there any instructions with the control board? I'm assuming we are talking about a heat pump control board or defrost board.
Some have time or temperature settings on the board that needs set. There's a lot of different boards out there, some have jumper pins and some have dip switches, you almost need either the unit installation instructions or the instructions that should have came with the board. Not sure if this will help you but if it doesn't you may need to contact a dealer or the company that made this unit.
