Question about GE AHK40LK Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Fan runs, seems to work ok... but not pulling water out of the ai

We have a portable GE dehumidifier which I believe takes 85 cu. pints of water out in 24 hours. It is probably not more than 4 years old. It seems to run, fan runs, but it won't pull the moisture out of the air. Can it be something simple to fix or do I need to trash it. Awfully expensive if I only get 4 years of service out of it.

Why does blower wheel stop on Frigidaire dehumdifier?


Good Afternoon Desi,

I understand that the blower wheel is not spinning on your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD504DUD. I also see that the compressor will stay on unless the dehumidifier is unplugged. I suggest you contact the manufacturer for further assistance. They can possibly clarify why the compressor stays on and why the blower fan is not working. If not, they should at least be able to point you in the right direction of having your dehumidifier working. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Humidifier Fan Doesn't Stop


RH at 70 % seems to me a little excessive you really should be working somewhere around 50 to 56% the fan has to move Air through the system.
I would like to know your room Air temp what is the Air temp comming off the system. what are your parameters.
