99% of the time, (if compressor still runs), the fan is stuck with dust, or just needs oiling on BOTH ends of the fan motor shaft.
the other 1% will be because your water reservouir presence sensor/switch is not being activated by incomplete insertion of reservouir, or malfunctioning switch.

Kenmore dehumidifier compressor & fan appear to be working how the question concerns the black ball in the bucket - when dropped to the bottom the machine shuts off. Lift the ball all works / any...


Check the switch that the ball is attached to. The ball should work such that when it floats to to the top of the bucket the unit shuts off the prevent overflow. The switch may have both normally open (NO) and normally closed (NC) contacts. If this is the case switch the wires from the one set of pins to the other and retest. Usually the plug will have two wires....those kind of switches has three pins. The center pin is usually the common. If this is the case move the plug from the pair on one side to the pair on the other.

I have a Zenith dehumidifier P/N 3850A20500H. It was working, and now its not. I cleaned the air filter, and the fan spins just fine when I spin it by hand. Any suggestions? Thanks, Gary


Gary, if it's not collecting condensation, there are 5 basic, yet solvable reason s for this. One you have already taken care of - cleaning the filter.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If you have an analog unit
set the humidity extraction level knob to 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 helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My LG Dehumidfier 3850A20500H has stopped pulling moisture from the air it still runs but no wataer in the bucket what could be the problem? this starts happening after 1 year of purchase.


There are several things that can cause the problem you described. Most of which are easily remedied.

1. The humidity/moisture extraction level is set to high. Lower it to 35%

2, Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Remove and clean the filter.

3. Refrigerant coils on the back of the unit are dirty and need to be cleaned.

4. Not enough clear air space around the unit. Maintain at least a minimum of 12" of clear air space all around the unit.

5. Unit is operating in a room that has an ambient air temperature at floor level, of between 40 -60 degrees F. Most dehumidifiers don't work well between those temperatures. Raise the unit up off the floor on to something sturdy enough for the weight of the dehumidifier when the bucket is full.

The above are the top 5 things that can cause a dehumidifier not to work properly. Fortunately, none of the solutions require any major repair to the unit.

Hope this helped you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Dehumidifier has stopped working...it appears to be electrical..no switches are working and no lights are on.


Check the outlet that the unit is plugged into, to be sure that it's still has power. If it doesn't, a circuit breaker for that outlet may have tripped. Or the outlet receptacle may have a loose wire. Try plugging the unit into another outlet that is not on the same circuit, as the one it's currently plugged into.
