These are somewhat related to cooling systems so the system may need a coolant recharge like any AC. Check your user guide to see if there is any mention of a need for recharging.

Hi! My home dry 660 collects water but also has started leaking onto carpet? Is this a big fix? It is probably about 10years old!


not that big of a job ! it just needs a good cleaning out, start by unhooking power and then remove outer case , look inside at area that has lots of fins !! fine aluminum ones !! there should be a water tray just below the fins ! im betting this is well garb'd up with yuk!! take a 50/50 water bleach solution (gloves would be a good idea too) and work some f this around in the tray till it loosens up , remove with old towels or rags (throw em away) and find the drain hole in the tray that allows the water to drain into collection pan and poke down it with the end of a old pencil to clean it out as well (don't use metal) don't forget to clean your fan blades off too before reinstalling cover and leveling unit before reconnection power

I have a Ebac Homedry 660 dehumidifier. How can I tell if the demidifier is defrosting?


If it was frozen and is now thawing, you will probably find some water in the collection container and some on the floor.

My 880 home dry is around 15 years old now and when on makes a loud squeaking noise, what is it and is it worth repairing , other wise works fine .regards


sounds like the fan - its worth taking apart and seeing which bit squeeks, if its the bearing try a small amount of WD40 first. try not to get any on the motor of electrics. You can by an electrolube spray if is is the Fan... Well worth taking apart, the latest EBAC models are of very poor quality.
I also had a Homedry for 15 years and the cabinets started to root first... I've had three 2560e's since all replaced under warranty - pcb failures...

I have a Whirlpool dehumidifier that doesn't collect water


I have a Whirlpool dehumidifier model AD50LJ0: the compressor starts but then appears to trip out. The fan keeps running. It does not condense and water. Can you help?

Dehumidifier does not collect water.


If your dehumidifier doesn't seem to run often but the humidity in the room is high, try adjusting the humidistat control on the dehumidifier to a dryer setting. If the dehumidifier seems to run constantly, but there's little or no water in the container, there may be a problem in the refrigeration system. Try cleaning the unit. If that doesn't work, you can't repair the refrigeration system yourself, you need a qualified appliance repair technician to do that.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!

Running but not collecting water...


Dehumidifiers have only a few components, and operate on the same principle as a refrigerator, freezer, or air-conditioner.
Components Residential dehumidifiers have a cooling system made up of these primary components:

  • The compressor is the quiet motor (engine) of the cooling system. It's the black, football-size component at the bottom of your dehumidifier. The compressor runs as long as the dehumidifier humidistat (the humidity-sensor) calls for a reduction in the humidity.

  • The condenser is a series of finned tubes, similar to a radiator. It's usually near the circulating fan.

  • The evaporator is located near the back of the dehumidifier, right above the water-collection container. It also resembles a radiator or a coiled-up set of tubes. When the dehumidifier's humidistat senses increased humidity, it cycles on, which starts the compressor and circulating fan.

  • The circulating fan circulates the air over the evaporator and condenser coils.

Principle When the unit runs, the circulating fan and compressor also run. The fan continually draws room air over the evaporator coils, which are cold, and then over the condenser coils, which are warm. Because the evaporator coils are cold, the moisture in the room collects on them--just as the outside of a glass of icy liquid "sweats" on a warm, humid day. When the moisture on the coils increases, it drips off of the coils into the collection container.

The air then flows over the warm condenser coils and out into the room. This process removes water from the air and, because of the heat from the fan motor and compressor motor, the exiting air is somewhat warmer, as well as dryer.
