Question about Comfort-Aire BHD-501 Dehumidifier
Unit used to fill up within a couple days. now it won't fill up within a week. went to look a little deeper into unit and found the unit was frozen up with large amount of ice on condenser coils. unit is less than 2 years old..
I did a little digging around on the internet and found out that if the basement (or where ever you have your unit) is in an area where the room temp might dip below 65 degrees the coils may start to become "too efficient" in pulling the moisture/humidity out of the air and it begins to freeze on the coils before it can drip off into the reservoir. The site said to turn off the unit and let it thaw out, then restart it and see if everything works ok after that. If the temperature gets too low you might need to warm up the air in the room/basement before it will operate correctly again/not continue to freeze up. Hope this helps. Mine just did the same thing but we've had some pretty cold weather recently and the basement is fairly cold as well.
