A common problem - low on refrigerant. Unfortunately it's not a simple fix. Check your warranty to see if you're still covered for "Sealed system repairs"

Why is it blowing cold air?


A dehumidifier should blow cold air Carole. It takes in warm moist air, chills it, condenses the water out of the air and returns it chilled and dry to the room. That is the function of a dehumidifier. They often have the function of an air conditioner and blow cold air out of one outlet into the room and hot air out of the window via a venting hose. If yours is just a dehumidifier, it is working as designed

What were your expecting a dehumidifier to do?

1 1/2 year old machine runs but does not pull water from air


is the condenser getting cold at all? if not or only a little, you have a compressor issue. possibly no refrigerant. also check the air flow. if the fan isn't on, it'll just get too hot and water won't condense on heat.

My dehumidier blows very hot air while working. Makes it hotter than it was before starting. Like a furnace.


It is normal for a dehumidifier to discharge warm air. A dehumidifier is really an air conditioner - a fan blows humid room air across a cold fin coil that causes the moisture to condense on it and drip into a container - thus cooling AND dehumidifying the air. The cool air is blown over the warm coil and discharged out the back. A dehumidifier WILL normally increase the temperature of the room it is in.
You can do the same thing with sitting an A/C unit on a stool in a room. Room air will be drawn in, cold air will come out the front, hot air out the back and water will drip on the floor. And, the room will get hotter, due to what is called "heat of compression" even though you're running an A/C unit.

I have a 30-pint KUL dehumidifier that works GREAT and is fairly quiet. My question is: the air that flows from the vent is lukewarm at best and sometimes warmer than that. If the a/c is on, this affe


A/C removes the heat found in the air and so gives out slightly warf flows but normally this is cooled of by water but that is why air con home units are vented to the outside atmos

Dehumidifier headaches!


There are three things that must be working to extract water. The 'coil' (a finned metal part that allows air passage) if it's filled with dust and obstructions, no air can move...no water. There is a blower motor that mus move the air. If it is seized up an not blowing air...very little or no water. The compressor uses condensation from the air moving across its coils (like the moisture than forms on a cold glass on a humid day) to extract the water from the air. If it's not working then no water.
So, if there is air blowing out of the dehumidifier the blower is working. If the air is room temp the compressor is not working. If it's real hot air, and the humidifier keeps cycling on and off quickly, the coil is dirty. Those are the 3 things that need to be working.

My kenmore 50 pint dehumidifier 54501 runs but it does not taking in water


You need to determine what's "running". Here's why: There are three things that must be working to extract water. The 'coil' (a finned metal part that needs air to flow across its surface) may be filled with dust and obstructions, so no air can move...then no water. There is a blower motor that must move the air. If it is seized up and not blowing air...very little or no water. The compressor creates condensation from air moving across the coil (like the moisture than forms on an ice filled glass on a humid day) to extract the water from the air. If it's not working then no water.
So, if there is air blowing out of the dehumidifier the blower is working. If the air is room temp the compressor is not working. If it's real hot air, and the humidifier keeps cycling on and off quickly, the coil is dirty. Those are the 3 things that need to be working.

The dehumidifier is blow cold air


Is it collecting water? The air coming out the back top half should be cool/warm. It will be a little warmer at the bottom near the compressor.

Sunbeam 50-pint dehumidifier


That's pretty normal. Most of these portable units blow quite a bit of heat.
