When set in smart mode it runs continuously and the core ices up this results in the filter not being able to be removed. water then runs all over the floor. This also happens in normal mode Very li


Ice builds up for two basic reasons:
  1. Impeded air flow. This causes the dehumidifier to run constantly as the humistat never reaches it setpoint as there is limited or no airflow over the coils. Even with a filter, the cooling coils can become clogged and render airflow restricted or non-existent. Check and correct as necessary.
  2. A low refrigerant charge. Systems can leak over time and become low on charge. This causes extended period of running and the resultant freeze-up. If the coils and filter are clean, have the system checked for proper charge of refrigerant.

Dehumidifier does not reduce humidity.


Good Afternoon Miguel,

I understand that your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# LAD704TDL, is not reducing the humidity, due to the coils constantly freezing up. I also see that it is located in good temperatures and in a good position. I suggest contacting the manufacturer directly. They should be able to point you in the right direction to having your appliance fixed. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Esco Oasis 2700L dehumidifier ices up. Is there a filter to be cleaned and if so, how to I get to it?


Hi,

The most common cause of frost and ice buildup on a dehumidifier is because the unit is operating in temperatures that are too cold. Many dehumidifiers are not equipped to run at temperatures below 65 degrees Fahrenheit.
To fix this problem, Position the dehumidifier in an area where there is at least one foot of clearance around the unit in order to allow for proper air circulation during its operation. Close all windows, doors and other outside openings to make sure your unit isn't attempting to remove moisture from areas outside of the immediate room. Determine the temperature of the room by checking a nearby thermostat or by using a hand-held thermometer.

Check the filter for dirt and buildup. Unplug the unit from the electrical source and check the filter by opening the filter compartment. If the filter is dirty, it will restrict airflow through the unit and lead to freezing. Soleus recommends lightly vacuuming the surface of the filter to remove dirt. The filter also can be washed in warm water if it is extremely dirty. Once clean, place the filter back in its compartment. Allow for the ice to melt and then restart your dehumidifier.

Ice forming on top front part of unit


usually, ice build up is caused by low refrigerant levels (a dehumidifier is essentially an air conditioner). depending on the unityou may or may not be able to service it. Some of these systems are sealed at the factory and a pierce valve is needed to add refrigerant to the system.

Ice build-up on Danby Dehumidifier DDR583R


Make sure you have enough air moving over the coils. There is an air filter on some models which may be obstructed. Insufficient air flow will cause your problem.

Coils Ice Up and nothing is dehumidified


If the coil is clean, then have a tech check for a low charge. This will cause the coil to freeze up. Humidifers are known to lose gas and owners aren't told this so end up buying new one and scraping the old one. Trust me on this. I have seen this many times. I repair high end machinery as my business.
