Turn the humidistat all the way up. This is the test position that will cause it to run continuously. The blower or furnace must be running, depending on how it is wired. If the humidifier has never been serviced in five years, call a professional. The orifices will plug and pad deteriorates after about a year. These need yearly maintenance to operate correctly.

I have a 2 yr old dehumidifier and it runs, it just won't pull out the moisture out of the air.


There are 5 basic, but solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If you have an analog unit
(No LED screen), set the humidity extraction knob on Maximum.

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.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa

This is getting old. I may be able to get #1 replaced - am persuing that. As far as technical help or schematics, we are getting nowhere. At this point I do not feel I have received my money's worth...


If Hunter provided a wiring schematic for their dehumidifiers, you would had a response well before now. All they do provide is the Owner's Manual and a list of replaceable parts for your unit.
http://www.hunter-humidifiers.com/manuals/34357.pdf Just in case you have misplaced yours.

Certainly, if you call their Tech Service Dept 1-888-830-1326, they may furnish one to you via email with an attachment, as well as sell you any parts you may need. If your unit is not still under the Five Year Limited Warranty.

Good luck and hope this helps you get the schematic you need.

This is the manual for your de-humidifier. It lists the part number for the power and fan control switch and it states they have a 5 year warranty.

This is their link for support:
http://www.hunterair.com/suppo.95rt
They have a msrp on the unit at 84.95. What I wuld do is definately check into the warranty ting with them and I'm sure you could probably salvage one ot of the two units. Replacement parts may not be cost effective. You can test the motor from #1 in #2 and, if it runs, you know it has to be a switch or a start capacitor, etc. I guess it all depends on how much tinkering you want to do. I would think there is a good chance there is a wiring diagram for the motor somewhere inside the case or on the motor. Good luck.

For some reason after 2 uses it has decided to stop pushing the moisture up and the whole unit got very hot including the tank of water?? I have used humidifiers for the last 30 years and thought this...


stop pushing the moisture up? I feel you may have shorted out the unit. ultrasonic humidifiers differ from old humidifiers that relied on a motor and a little rod that sticks in to stir and disperse water droplets. (the old ones were designed to get wet).. Now they are little small vibrating disks and a fan to break down water molecules. the unit is designed to get the moisture into the room. but if it starts to **** the moisture back into it's self from the fan in the bottom. then no good can come. I messed up my first one from not knowing to keep moisture out of the bottom. but a good return policy does wonders! :)

I got E4 error message, and my tank is empty. The humidity value blink too... What can be the problem?


There is some type of electrical component that needs to be replaced called a relay switch. I had the exact problem and it was only a little over a year old. I am not impressed with the appliance for the price i paid for it. I went and bought the cheapest dehumidifier I could find and it works great. You can bypass this problem on your home comfort system by attaching the hose that came with it to the back and the machine will work the water will drain out of it. I

Fan works, but no mist and water isn't going away


Turn on furnace and urn up humidistst to call for it. Tube from solenid to the filter should have water running if water is up to the valve and solinoid is opening . It should be warm to your touch., Using an ohm meter you can sheck the coil it shuold have continuity.

The humidifier is designed to "pull" the air through the water panel. After it does the humidified air will re-enter the plenum on the side of the opening that it is pulling in from. Just keep the water panel replaced every year and you will be fine.
