This isn't what you want to hear but it sounds like you have a bad compressor . if the unit is less then 1 year old then find a local warranty service and they will fix it for free. If it is older then 1 year old it will cost more to fix then the unit is worth.

    This is the same problem I have. I consulted Whirlpool and referred me to their recommended repair service. One will charge $129 and the other for $90 for visit and diagnostic, excluding the parts. I called my other reliable repair service and provided similar recommendation here... if it's more than a year or two, just say goodbye to it and buy a new one since repairing the old one will be unreasonably costly.

The fan never stops running. The dehum. works fine that is the only problem. Is it the way I have it set how can I change that?


Bob, some humidifier fans run a lot, because they are designed to keep the air moving and when the humidity level rises, the compressor turns ON to extract the humidity. If you're operating the unit in a continual mode, it's not unusual for the fan to run almost constantly.Especially, is the humidity extraction level is set at or above 50%. Lowering it to 35% will cause it to extract more humidity and will turn on an off less.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have no power to my LG Dehumidifier lhd45ely7. I left it running and came in my basement and it will not turn on. I saw the filter was completely filthy and cleaned that but it still did not turn back...


Scott, first make sure that tere is still electric power to the unit. Check the circuit breaker for that outlet to see if it's been tripped. Or perhaps, there's a loose wire connection in the receptacle. If all that checks out as good. If the circuit breaker has been tripped unplug the unit, before resting the breaker. Also, check the water collection bucket to see if it's full. If it is, empty it and properly reinstall it in it's holder

In addition, there are 5 basic, yet solvable reason for what you described.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%
.
2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My dehumidifier kenmore model 580.52650 is working fine but turn off and turn back on every three minutes it is this dangerous, any solutions ? THANKS.


I think the problem may be caused by the humidity extraction level you have the unit set on. (i.e. It's set to high). Lower the humidity extraction level to 35%. This will allow the unit to run longer and extract more humidity, before it either shuts off, because the humidity level has been reached or the bucket is full and needs to be emptied.

Don't forget, the air intake filter should be cleaned regularly.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

I bought a model 365 remington dehumidifier. I plugged it in and nothing lights up. I have it plugged in for the past 8 to 10m hous and still nothing. Should i be seeing the blue light up ?


Two things that you need to check: Make sure that the outlet the dehumidifier is plugged int, is in fact working. The circuit breaker for that outlet may be tripped or there may be a loose or damaged wire connection to the one of the outlet's terminals. I assume you are turning the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON of the dehumidifier, after you plugged the unit in and set the humidity extraction level below 40%?

My dehumidifer is not drawing any water, but the fan continues to run.


There are several reasons this may be happening. The 2 primary reasons are the humidity extraction level is set to high. Lower it to 35% . The lower the setting, the more moisture/humidity is extracted from the air. The higher the setting, the less if any moisture. humidity will be extracted from the air.
On most humidifiers the fan runs almost constantly while in operation. The idea is to continually move the air around and when the unit senses a rise in humidity, above what you have it set on, the compressor will turn ON to extract that humidity.

The 2nd thing that causes the problem is a dirty of clogged intake air filter. Which is easily solved by removing and cleaning the filter. Which should be done at least every 2 weeks, while the dehumidifier is in operation.

I said there were 2 reasons. Actually, there is a 3rd. Not enough clear air space all around the dehumidifier. A minimum of 12" should be maintained during operation.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
