Goldstar dehumidifier dh404ey7 starts and runs about 5 mins., then trips house breaker in all different outlets.


any appliance that trips the fuse or breaker should not be tried to use by homeowner this is a fire hazzard as an electric short is a dangerous situation to have in any home , replace unit ! ck with mfg for recalls first and warrentys as well then contact your power company sometimes they give rebates for appliance upgrades but they require old ones back in order to pay u money on them

Frigidaire dehumidifier


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that there is no water coming out of your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FDF50S1. I also see that the filter is fine and the fan is running. If you have your dehumidifier set up to continuously drain through a garden hose, make sure there are no kinks or clogs in the garden hose. If that does not work, I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Turn the power back on and try any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully.

-Best Regards-

I have an amana d545m in the crawl space at my lakehome...when i went to check on the furnace filter, i noticed it was not running and has no power...how and what do i check to diagnose the...


First, make sure that there's power to the unit. Has a circuit breaker in the circuit breaker panel been tripped? If so, unplug the unit before resetting the breaker. Also, check the receptacle or extension cord that you're using to power the unit, as it may be damaged.

If you have power to the unit, it may be that some critter or insects have gotten into the unit and shouted it out. In which case, you're lucky that it didn't start a fire. It's not a good idea to leave the dehumidifier running unattended for a week or more.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Will not turn on no indicator lights filter and coils are clean is there a breaker inside somewhere


No, no breaker. It may simply be the case of the water collection bucket is not installed properly. When that happens, nothing will work. Remove the bucket and check the top of the inside of the bucket for a float valve (if yours is so equipped). It may be stuck in the 'UP' position, which makes the unit think the bucket is full & everything turns OFF. If you see one, and the float valve is UP, jiggle the arm of the float valve to get it to return to the DOWN position.

Whether your unit has a float valve or not, when you reinstall the bucket, be sure to install it "squarely" from top to bottom, so that it makes firm contact with the bucket safety removal switch on the back wall of the bucket holder. When installed properly, the bottom of the bucket should not tilt down at all.

If none of the above solved solved the problem,it may be an electrical issue. The circuit breaker for the outlet it's plugged into may have tripped. Check your home's circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker. If you find one, unplug the dehumidifier before resetting the circuit breaker. Also, the wall outlet may be damaged or have a loose wiring connection.

All of the above are things that you should troubleshoot first. It's a process of elimination to determine what is causing the problem.

I hope this has helped to get you started on solving the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have no power to my LG Dehumidifier lhd45ely7. I left it running and came in my basement and it will not turn on. I saw the filter was completely filthy and cleaned that but it still did not turn back...


Scott, first make sure that tere is still electric power to the unit. Check the circuit breaker for that outlet to see if it's been tripped. Or perhaps, there's a loose wire connection in the receptacle. If all that checks out as good. If the circuit breaker has been tripped unplug the unit, before resting the breaker. Also, check the water collection bucket to see if it's full. If it is, empty it and properly reinstall it in it's holder

In addition, there are 5 basic, yet solvable reason for what you described.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%
.
2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Demudifier worked great, all a sudden it just stopped. No power. Now it won't start up. What should I try?


First, check the outlet that it's plugged into, to make sure that there's still power to the outlet. If there isn't, then the circuit breaker for that outlet has been tripped, in your home's circuit breaker panel. Leave the dehumidifier unplugged and reset the circuit breaker. If it trips again, without the dehumidifier unplugged, then the outlet is at fault. Perhaps there's a loose wire connection or the interior of the outlet is cracked.

If it didn't trip without the dehumidifier plugged in, plug the unit it in,. But, before you do, make sure the dehumidifier's Master ON/OFF Switch is OFF. Once it's plugged in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. If it runs now, GREAT! If it trips the circuit breaker again, there's either a short in the power cord or an internal electrical short. Which will require extensive troubleshooting to find.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Unit will start and run for 5 seconds, then will blow a circut breaker on 20A. circut. This is a model AD75USTO Serial # QU2660438 AKA Whirlpool gold energy star


Hopefully, it's not a problem inside the unit that's causing the circuit breaker to trip. Is there another electrical appliance plugged into the same outlet or on that circuit that is ON and draws 15 amps of power? If so, that's the problem. If that's not the case, turn the circuit breaker OFF and remove the outlet cover, so you can inspect the receptacle and it's wiring. A loose wiring connection or a broken or cracked receptacle could be the issue. If you don't find any damage reassemble the outlet and turn the circuit breaker back ON. Instead of plugging in the dehumidifier, plug in a lamp or something similar and turn it ON. Leave it on for more than 5 minutes to see if the circuit breaker trips again. If it does, you'll know the problem is either with the outlet receptacle or the circuit breaker. If doesn't, plug in the dehumidifier (Make sure the Master ON/OFF Switch on the unit is in the OFF position, before plugging it in. Then turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. If the circuit breaker trips again, the problem is in the dehumidifier. You will need to call Whirlpool Customer Care, as it's an internal electrical issue.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, I have included a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference. http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%201188927.pdf

I have cleaned the filter that is located in the front; however it still won't turn on, what could be wrong? thank you


If you're not getting any indicator lights, check the receptacle that it's plugged into. Is their power to it? If not, the circuit breaker in your home's circuit breaker panel may have been tripped. Or the outlet itself may be faulty (loose wire, poor connection, etc). If the indicator lights are working, but the compressor is not, turn the Master ON/OFF switch on the unit to OFF and wait 10 minutes before plugging it back in. This will give the electronics time to reset themselves.

Hopefully, the above will solve you problem.

Unit trips out circuit after a few minutes (20Amp stand alone circuit)


make sure that the circuit breaker for the electrical plug is not faulty, cause after a long lifetime of high amperage flowing through it, the springs will start to get weak. If this is the case then you need to replace the electrial breaker. Otherwise, make sure that the power system on the system is not pulling too much current, Or that there is not a faulty breaker inside the printer itself, which has become weak.
