Question about Comfort-Aire BHD-651 Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Unit Runs (fan and condenser) but no water?

My Dehumidifer runs, but does not collect any water. The fan and condenser both are working/running, but no water is collecting in the bucket. There is plenty of moisture in the air for the the unit to take in.

    I have the SAME problem!

  • Bradleymac5 May 20, 2008


    Same problem on Comfort-Aire BHD-651 purchased October 2006.

    Unit runs but no water drains. Fan is working and filter is clean. I think unit is freezing up.

    After unit has been running for awhile, it is making a lot of noise. It seems there is less air flowing through too.

    Any suggestions to visually check for freezing?

By condenser I assume you mean the compressor is running. Is there ice forming on the front coil?

Dehumidifer Runs but doesn't collect water

Depends on he conditions of the water. These units are relatively inexpensive and typically do not justify the expense of repair. I'ld donate it to an air conditioning school and buy another one.

My model LG3850A20500H dehumidifer is not collecting any water but is running. Is there anything I can check?

You can check the condenser unit, by touching it. (be carefull of hot surface) if the condensor unit not warm at all we can sure that the dehumidifier is not working, (only fan). The problem may be come from compressor or temperatur limit is not working or cooling agent is finished cause by some leakage on the tube.

The humidifier runs but is not collecting water... so humidity level never drops.

My brand new frigidaire 50 liter dehumidifier has been on for two days and has not collected water from my damp basement. It is on the factory settings: high fan and "CO" (continuous).
