Question about Whirlpool AD40USR Dehumidifier

Fan no compressor will run

I have a Whirlpool dehumidifier that is only a couple of years old in my basement. The fan has always run continuously, though the compressors kicks on and off. Everything has now stopped running. The control panel lights are on, but it won't run. The bucket is empty and properly seated. Any advice?

Why does compressor continue running, even with dehumidifier turned off?


So I just had this happen with my Frigidaire fad704dwd dehumidifier. I went to basement and heard it running and sounded off. The compressor was running fan was off which is bad and humidity said 30. I then pushed the off button and it stayed running. I was able to fix it. To make long story short it was a bad ground. I took the plastic back, sides, and front off. There was a green ground (main ground) and Green/yellow ground (fan ground) on the front coil with a bunch of rust. Removed the grounds connected them both together and cleaned the surface area and used a new stainless screw nut and screw to remount the wires to evaporator coil. Everything started working fine after that and I put it back together. Good Luck

IIt may very well be that the the air intake filter needs to be removed and cleaned. But, before doing this, turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Allow the unit to completely thaw, before removing the filter.Never operate the unit without the filter in place, As this could damage the unit.

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

Whirlpool DEHUMIDIFIER Model - AD70USS1 does fan NOT does not cycle off anymore in the low settings as it should


According to the Owner's Manual for your model, the fan will run continually, if the unit is set in continuous mode or if the unit is in defrost mode. Once the unit senses a rise in the humidity level, the compressor will start up again. Also, a dirty or clogged air filter will cause the fan to run more that it should.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Compressor and fan both kick on when starting. Frosts up (normal for this time of year) but then compressor stops but fan continues to run but compressor does not start up again....


From what you have described, it sounds like the defrost sensor may be bad. However, if you're operating the unit in a temperature of 40 degrees or lower. That's the problem. If in a basement application, keep in mind the floor temperature is lower than the air temperature.

Also, cleaning the air intake filter on a regular basis will help.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

4 year old dehumidifier does not extract water


It may have lost its charge of refrigerant. Check the warranty for sealed system, or if it is just the compressor which is covered. There are coils above the bucket area. Check for possible frost on only part of the coil. It is a sign that it has a leak at some point and has lost its refrigerant charge. If it lost all the gas there will be no frost nor condensation on the coils. Four years old and $75 bucks, its your choice.
