There is ice on the filter and the filter will not come out. Tried turning off so it would melt, but filter still stuck. It is summer so why is ice forming?


I have had a AD75UST0 WHIRLPOOL Dehumidifier for several years. I had mine ice up once or twice particularly on very high humidity days > 90%. Once it thawed out. I was able to remove the filter. Most likely it is due to dust getting on coils & condenser Or actually has a Freon leak. to resolve the dirty coils you can easily dissemble (that is remove front & rear cover) it to give coils and condenser a good thorough cleaning. It the coils and condenser are not at all dirty, then is not the cause of the icing. The units are typically not serviceable - i.e. a disposable small appliance.

Moisture collecting at the top front when running, even at mid power, over the control panel, sometimes turns to ice. if I shut it off when it is doing this the problem stops for awhile


Well, sounds like you have a good cold section in the dehumidifier-- that is good!-- But I agree-- we don't want water condensing on the surface-- and we surely don't need it turning to ice!
A couple questions to help us get to the next level of trouble shooting this problem:
1.) How cold is the room you are running the dehumidifier in?
(Obviously-- the warmer a room is, the easier to remove moisture--
the colder the room, the easier to drop the air temperature well below the freezing point-- making ice.)

2.) Have the air filters been cleaned/changed recently?
A dehumidifier needs a steady fast moving supply of air across its whole condenser/evaporator surface, in order to remove the maximum amount of water from the air, and not freeze up. (I would winder if something isn't blocking the flow of air toward the top of the coil?-- so that the coil in that area is going well below freezing temperatures, and thus allowing water (or ICE!) to develop near the top of the coil?-- Can you check air flow for us?

3.) You have suggested a good solution,-- especially if the above problems can not be easily corrected: Turn off the unit every few hours, and allow the warmth of the room, to defrost the coil....
In fact-- just to make sure that the air flow is not being restricted by ice deep within the coil-- let it stay off over night-- or bring the dehumidifier into a much warmer room, to make sure no ice is still blocking air flow deep within the coil..

Let us know what you learn about air flow, and get back with us-- THen maybe we need to take the trouble shooting deeper insicde the device.

I hope this helps-- MB

Ice forms on the coils. Would wet clothing hung in the area contribute to this problem? The temperature of the area is in the high 50's - 60's.


Yes. Wet clothing would act to put Humidity in the air. think of the air as a sponge the more you heat the air the more the air will take moisture out of its surrondings. The more you cool the air the less moisture it can hold.
a Dehumidifier is a reverse refrigrator.. Air is forced over cool coils and the moisture forms and freezes on the coils (ice). The unit turns off and the coil and ice takes heat up from the surrounding area (makes room colder;Clothing takes longer to dry; The temperature in that room should be were people reside 70-80 degrees). the ice melts and water drips into a holding container which you dump periodically. Solution: 1. remove wet clothing or 2. raise temperature in room. 3. put a space heater in that room instead of Dehumidifier

Coils freezing up, is this normal during operation?


Check fan speed. Also if coil (it's the evaporator) is clean.

Ice is forming on the coils - delonghi dehumidifier


Check your filter, indoor coil and blower wheel to see if they are dirty, if they are they need to be cleaned, if not then you are probably low on refrigerant or Blower speed to low. If the blower doesn’t run when you turn the switch to on then you need to check the blower out, especially the capacitor.

Dehumidifier icecing up


Three possibilities for coils icing up.

1. Low ambient temperature in the area where dehumidifier is located. If so, shut down and de-ice it. Then move the unit to a different - (warmer) - location and start it up.

2. Heating element - (which cycles periodically to liquify frost on the coils and allow water to drain) - is malfunctioning.

3. Low refrigerant level in the unit.
