If the unit is titled forward at all, the "full bucket" "trip switch" will not trigger off as it should. Be sure the unit is on a flat, level surface, or leaning backward slightly--this also aids drainage through the drain tube, if that's your set-up.

Why do the coils freeze on my zenith zd309 dehumidifier

Coils can freeze if the room is extremely hot. Usually, though they freeze because the path for air flow is reduced. Check input and output grilles and coils for dirt and dust and clean as necessary.

Red exclamation sign blinking

Dehumidifier? Sounds like a warning of some sort. A humidifier does a simple job, removing moisture from the air. If yours is not set up to drain, it could have a full holding tank. Empty it out and give it a rinse and it should be good. Drop a couple drops of chlorine bleach in it to keep down the mold growth.

If it isn't a full tank, it could be an air filter that needs cleaning or replacing. Often these things are programmed in and needs to be cleared. Clean and or replace any and all air filters and look for a reset button.

Good luck.

I have a delongji DEM 10 dehumidifier and it keeps switching to pause, I have cleaned filter switched off for a while but it still won't come on

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Unless you are licensed and qualified professional, do not try to repair a dehumidifier by yourself. If your unit is running constantly yet there is no water in the tank, try lowering the temperature control. If the problem persists, there may be a problem within the refrigeration system. You may need to pull the filter and clean it. Also try wiping off the unit itself. When the water tank is full, the unit will shut off and will not run until the tank is emptied. The dehumidifier shuts off by a safety switch in the back of the unit. If the switch is not working properly, you may try manually pressing the button or slightly bending the switch.
    Motor If the fan motor is damaged or will not work, no cool air will be coming out of the dehumidifier. The unit, however, may still run. You may need to replace the motor. If the coils in the back of the dehumidifier constantly freeze, try turning off the unit for an hour or re-locating the unit to a higher position to allow the room to heat up. If your water tank is constantly full and you are emptying it on a daily basis, you may have a water leak somewhere in the room with the dehumidifier.

    Hi . I have a Zenith Dehumidifier ZD309 , the bucked is empty but light still on like has some water in the bucket..I insert the bucket propertly... but doesn't work. My e-m is...

    After you removed the bucket to empty it, did you make sure the bucket was reinstalled properly so the it made contact with the reset switch? If not, that's more than likely the problem. Remove the bucket and reinstall it carefully. If all else fails, unplug the unit, wait 5 minutes and plug it back in. Thta may help to reset it.

    I have a kenmore 54351 model dehumidifier. It wont come back on the auto shut off light keeps flashing. The tank has been emptied. Its not even a year old yet.

    There is a switch that is activated when you slide the tank back into the unit after you empty it. If the tank is not in just right it will not activate this swith. You might look for it and try pressing it with your finger to see if it is working. Not sure about your model but be careful not to shock youself! The switch should be insulated and is really just an interlocked relay...

    The tank may be full. Your dehumidifier has a safety device that turns off the dehumidifier when the water tank is full. Usually the tank itself either presses against a switch or there's a device connected to the tank that triggers a switch when the tank is in place and full.

    If you've emptied the tank and the unit doesn't run, inspect the place where the tank rests to see if there's a switch or mechanism that's not being activated. You may be able to turn it on with a simple flick of your finger.

    Take care.

    The "full light" will not quit blinking.

    you take out the filter screen and vacumn it or run it under warm water. As far as the full light is concerned it probably means the last time you emptied it you didn't seat it back into the unit properly. If you take the tank out and reinstall it the light will probably go off. Sometimes I have to do it a couple of times before it seats properly.
