    i did not think this was the problem for a while but as it warmed up, (and i vacuumed that small round grid on the side, though there did not seem to be anything there) the thing started working again. perhaps were were in deeper drought than i thought

    My Kenmore 533011 dehumdifier only works intermittently, starts only when I move it around on its castors - and sometimes not even then. Often it only runs about a minute, them shuts off.

IS THE ROOM HUMIDITY LOW. IF IT IS BELOW 30% THE HUMIDISTAT WILL SHUT DOWN THE UNIT. THE AMMBIENT TEMP SHOULD BE ABOVE 65 DEGREES AND THE HUMIDITY SHOULD BE ABOVE 50 %.

My LG Dehumidfier 3850A20500H has stopped pulling moisture from the air it still runs but no wataer in the bucket what could be the problem? this starts happening after 1 year of purchase.


There are several things that can cause the problem you described. Most of which are easily remedied.

1. The humidity/moisture extraction level is set to high. Lower it to 35%

2, Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Remove and clean the filter.

3. Refrigerant coils on the back of the unit are dirty and need to be cleaned.

4. Not enough clear air space around the unit. Maintain at least a minimum of 12" of clear air space all around the unit.

5. Unit is operating in a room that has an ambient air temperature at floor level, of between 40 -60 degrees F. Most dehumidifiers don't work well between those temperatures. Raise the unit up off the floor on to something sturdy enough for the weight of the dehumidifier when the bucket is full.

The above are the top 5 things that can cause a dehumidifier not to work properly. Fortunately, none of the solutions require any major repair to the unit.

Hope this helped you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem.

I need to know how to clean filter. Lost book


Hello,

follow the below instructions:

Turn off the dehumidifier machine and unplug it from the wall.

Lift the water bucket up and out of the dehumidifier.

Locate the filter located under the compartment that houses the water bucket. Lift the filter straight up and out of the dehumidifier.

Vacuum as much of the visible dirt and debris as possible.

Fill a sink half full with water. Place the filter in the water and allow it to soak for one to two minutes.

Wipe both sides of the filter with a wet sponge to remove any remaining dirt and debris. Rinse the filter with clean water.
Wipe the filter with a dry cloth to remove excess moisture. Allow it to air dry for approximately 30 minutes before inserting it back into the dehumidifier.
Good luck.

Runs for a couple of minutes and then stops


Try cleaning out the air filter using cold water. I did not even know the unit had one until I had the same problem. Pull out the bucket. The filter is located where the front top edge of the bucket would be located if it were in the instrument. Remove it by pulling straight down. It may be taped to the instrument for shipping purposes. According to the manual, this should be done every month. I have had the machine since Katrina and this is the first time I have had a problem. Hope this helps.
