Is the filter dirty or is the air flow not as much as it used to be - low freon pressure - low air flow causes a/c units - dehumidifiers to ice up - if fan is running normal are the fan blades dirty

My Kul Dehumidifier filter keeps freezing up? is there anything I can do to keep this from happening?


Turn the knob to a lower setting so that the unit cycles on & off. This will give it time to warm back up and melt the ice in between dehumidifying runs.

My dehumidifier keeps turning off is hooked up to hose no water draining air filter is clean. model #ld450eal 45 pint


The most common problem is that the humidity extraction level is set to high. Set it to it's lowest setting. If you have an LED screen on your unit, the lowest setting will probably be 35%. Or in the case of no LED screen, Minimal will be the setting you want to use.

Since you're using a drain hose, I assume the unit is in the basement. If that's the case, the ambient air temperature at floor level, may be to cold for the unit to operate properly. Most dehumidifiers struggle at air temperatures between 40 and 60 degrees F. Try placing the unit up off the floor on something sturdy that can handle the weight (including a full tank of water) and the vibration during operation.

Hope this helped you trouble shoot and solve the problem.Please let me know. Thanks.

Dehumdifier not collecting water.


It may be that the humidity level or temperature in the room where your dehumidifier is located is too low.

When the outdoor temperature is below 50 F, the indoor air will be dry even when the air inside is warm, therefore when it's cold outside the dehumidifier may collect little or no water.

Air conditioners will also remove moisture from the room, even if it's hot and humid outside, resulting in little or no moisture collecting in the dehumidifier bucket.

Some dehumidifiers have a deicer which turns off the compressor but keeps the fan running. When the compressor is off, moisture is not removed from the air. The deicer turns off the compressor when the room temperature is cold.

Some dehumidifiers do not have a deicer. If the room temperature is low enough, ice may form on the evaporator coil. The ice prevents the dehumidifier from removing and collecting water. If ice forms on coils, unplug dehumidifier until ice melts and room temperature rises.

The filter (on some models) may be dirty or clogged. If so, clean the filter. For instructions on cleaning the filter.

I hope this help to solve, if this answer solve it, remember to rate it. Good luck.

It runs it just doesn't collect any water. Not even a drip.


Hello,

First, make sure the humidistat isn't set too high by adjusting it to the lowest humidity setting and running it again. Next, test the dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower running. If you don't see water collecting in the unit after several minutes, turn the unit off and clean all dehumidifier filters and coils. If, after adjusting the settings and cleaning the unit, you still don't see water collecting, you may have a refrigeration issue. This situation will have to be addressed by a qualified technician.

Take care.

You didn't say what humidity range you have it set for, or how damp of an area it is dehumidifying. The one in my basement also never shuts off and we have it set for the lowest humidity (meaning we don't want any down there). If you think it should be shutting off you might want to get another Humidistat they are $33.05 at this link, http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/search/partinfo.php?partsID=278698&modelsID=118670&typeName=dehumidifier

Frigidare Dehumidifier will not turn off


Pressure and temperature is directly related with refrigerants in the system. Ice building on part of the coils shows that the pressure inside the system is low and the system has lost some of its charge. Very low humidity with a low ambient temperature will also cause such a problem.
