Question about GE Dehumidifiers

1 Answer

I have a GE Dehumidifier Model AHW50LMG1. Am trying to find out how to clean the container that the water is collected into. After use the container contains residue from collected water that I am concerned will cause a mold and mildew problem. I cannot find my manual as to how to clean this container properly. Can you help?

Vinegar is the proper way to clean all parts of a humidifier. It stops scale and kills bacteria and fungus. It can be processed through the heating element without any adverse effects.

Collects very little water never fills up the container. all fiters are clean


Hello,

First, make sure the humidistat isn't set too high by adjusting it to the lowest humidity setting and running it again. Next, test the dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower running. If you don't see water collecting in the unit after several minutes, turn the unit off and clean all dehumidifier filters and coils. If, after adjusting the settings and cleaning the unit, you still don't see water collecting, you may have a refrigeration issue. This situation will have to be addressed by a qualified technician.

Take care.

Haier dehumidifier will turn on but does not collect water.


hello. If your dehumidifier doesn't seem to run often but the humidity in the room is high, try adjusting the humidistat control on the dehumidifier to a dryer setting. If the dehumidifier seems to run constantly, but there's little or no water in the container, there may be a problem in the refrigeration system. Try cleaning the unit. If that doesn't work, you can't repair the refrigeration system yourself, you need a qualified appliance repair technician to do that.
