SOURCE: dehumidifier has power but neither the fan nor the compressor will pull in.

It might be the thermolink on the fan motor.

I have the a Kenmore dehumidifier sometimes it runs fine and other times just the fan runs not the compressor or just the opposite the compressor runs not the fan it is only 2 1/2 years old. What should...


Kathy, I'm not sure you have a problem with the dehumidifier. Depending on which mode you're operating it in, the fan will run in an effort to recirculate the air. If the humidity level rises above the level you have the unit set on, the compressor will then turn ON. This is particularly true, if the unit is operating in continual mode. Then there are other times the fan isn't active, but the compressor turns on when the humidity sensor feels a rise in humidity. So, for the most part, I don't think it's a problem.

Just be sure that you clean the air intake filter at least once every two weeks, during times of daily operation.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Kenmore Elite 70 pint unit. Compressor appears to be frozen. Fan runs and compressor attempts to engage but immediately shuts down. Any suggestions. Unit is only about 2 years old.

The compressor runs, but the fan doesnt work when we trouble shooted it. we found out it has power when we bypassed the switch and tested it. we pulled out the control box and it doesnt look like anything...


Hi, after reading you're problem, I found that you did the right thing.If you bypassed the switch and now you have power to the condenser motor but it doesn't operate, the motor is faulty, as you are eliminating the switch sending power to the fan motor. If you have power going into one side of the switch and you jumped it over, and the motor starts, the switch is at fault. So, you did the right thing! Sometimes you cant tell by looking at the switch wiring to no if it is at fault.In the field, we use jumper wires everyday to bypass components to check them out.In you're situation, both the compressor and condenser fan motor operate from this same switch, and the compressor was running. So, that tells me without having to bypass it that the fan motor is the faulty one, or the compressor would also be off. You may have to find one at a appliance parts house, or order one online. Sounds to me that you will have no problem changing this out. Best of luck to you, and Sincerely,

I have a Kenmore 54701 Dehumidifer that quit working is there any thing to look for or just throw it out and buy a new one


Is it not powering at all? Remove cabinet and check glass fuse on power supply board

Is it running but no water?
Check to see if fan is blowing; if not then thermosenser on fan motor blown

Fan and compressor running but no water? Maybe the room is already dry; if not than probably have coolant leak - not worth fixing

Fan will not come on.


The fan has to run if the compressor is running as the fan assists in removing the heat from the condenser coil. Can you spin the fan by hand? If there is full power(120 volts) to the fan and it isn't running then the fan motor is bad. Also, if the fan motor has a run capacitor this could keep the fan from running(if the capacitor is defective) so look for this first.

My Kenmore had the problem of the fan running, but not the compressor. The compressor overload part was bad.

I'm working on mine right now as we speak with the same problem , it runs for 3-4 minutes and then drops out and what I think I have found is the compressor comes on but the fan that blows over the condensor/evaporator assemblies never turns on ! I tore the covers of mine and put a volt meter across the orange and black wires (with the unit on high ) , on the little white plug in the metal box on a pc board , that all the wires go into and with the comressor off just before it starts on power up I have 122vac (volts ac) and then the compressor kicks in and it drops to about 107 vac but no fan action so I'm getting on line to order a motor assembly Kenmore # 4681A20040K ! I just happened across this site so I hope It works for me and helps you !

Dehumidifier not dehumidifying ...


Save the old one for parts if you get the same new one but I def. don't reccomend buying this unit again. The reviews are bad. The fan is not covered under the warranty except first year or extented warranty. I spoke with Kenmore & Sears about this to see if coverd under 5 yr. Only compressor,tubing & refrigeration system(see inside of front cover for warranty info.)

Sound more like a sensor/circuit board problem to me since fan is turning. I think the signal determins which setting fan needs via sensor assembly to run. I could be wrong. Justa thought.

Can you def. hear the compressor come on. You can look through grill to see fan spin & the compressor makes a clank/clunking noise/ The fan & compressor should turn same time. Good luck! If you got any info. on my fan problem & you have update or fixed your problem I ccould use some help. Check post for my problem.. Thanks! panfan1
