SOURCE: no longer drawing humidity and condensing into bucket

thermostats are device to control the compressor. you said the compressor is running. if you are sure that the compressor is running, then it could have a leak and it is not functioning as it should. feel the air that is coming out of the fan, it should be a little bit warm, if it is not, and the compressor is running, i would suggest for you to turn it off and seek professional advice on how to find the leak and recharge the system of the unit. it is bad for the compressor to run without refrigerant.

tnx for using fixya,

SOURCE: Unit Runs (fan and condenser) but no water?

By condenser I assume you mean the compressor is running. Is there ice forming on the front coil?

Your dehumidifier should have come with a tube which would allow you to do this very easily. I beleive the part number is 5214A20027B.

Frigidaire dehumidifier model # FDL50S1 clicking very loudly.


If the unit is not running fully, but you have this noise, sounds like the internal fan might be the culprit. Contact your manufacturer for further options.

Tip

Dehumidifier VS. Air conditioner


A dehumidifier is basically the same thing as an air conditioner but both coils (condenser and evaporator) are in the same unit meaning a dehumidifier exhaust warm air in the same room it is in. running a dehumidifier would make an air conditioner run more because of the warm exhaust, when you run an air conditioner it acts like a dehumidifier and dries the air. As far as saving energy it all depends on the size of the AC and dehumidifier and the size of the room. If you want warm dry air, use a dehumidifier; if you want cool dry air run the AC but not both.
How do all these parts fit together to pull moisture from the air? It's fairly simple, but very effective:
  1. A fan collects air from the surrounding area and pulls it into the dehumidifier.
  2. As the air passes through, it comes into contact with the dehumidifier's cooled coils. These coils use condensation to pull moisture from the air. The collected moisture remains on the coils and drips into the dehumidifier's reservoir.
  3. The dehumidifier reheats the air and exhausts it back into the room.
A dehumidifier usually has a removable plastic bucket for are reservoir; most buckets also have a place where you can hook up a hose so the collected water can drain straight into a floor drain or pump. This frees you from having to remember to dump out the water. But don't worry too much about the reservoir overflowing -- most dehumidifiers also have an automatic shut-off. If you're using a dehumidifier in extremely moist conditions,however, or if you need to keep your dehumidifier on all the time, you should look into a unit with a built-in condensate pump, which regularly pumps water out of the unit's reservoir rather than simply relying on gravity to empty it as a hose does.

Our dehumidifier is no longer pulling moisture out of the air. I took the back off and the fan is still running. So motor or condenser? And is it worth fixing? The machine is approximately 6 years old.

Bucket not filling, unit seems to be making more noise


Hi,

If you are running and not pulling moisture first check air flow. Vacuum the front and back grills and make sure the coils are clean. If you have good air flow the cause of the problem is most like a sealed system issue. This is most commonly a refrigerant (freon) leak. check your use and care manual to find how long the warranty on the system is, sometimes it is as long as 5 years. If it is out of warranty then the repairs are more costly than a new unit.

No moisture


check to see if the coils in the back are cold. if they are not, you either have no freon or the vent in the front is blocked and the condenser coils have no air flow to cool down. if they are, there might not be sufficient air flow across the evaporator coils or the air is already dry.

also, if the bucket switch isn't activated (due to the bucket not being in all the way), the fans will come on, but not the compressor.
