Hi,
You can maybe buy a new fan... but till you buy the fan and then install it for a unit that costs only a few hundred bucks...well you get the picture...you still have an old unit also...

The piece on the back is broken


If it is made of plastic, try using super glue to fix it. Give it 1 hour to dry. Then reconnect the hose.

My dehumidifier keeps icing up, I have tried cleaning the coils but this has not helped.


This is because your system most likely has a leak in the refrigeration lines. Buy a new dehumidifier its not worth fixing invest in a new one. Humidifiers are made very cheap they really dont last.

I have a Kenmore 54701 Dehumidifer that quit working is there any thing to look for or just throw it out and buy a new one


Is it not powering at all? Remove cabinet and check glass fuse on power supply board

Is it running but no water?
Check to see if fan is blowing; if not then thermosenser on fan motor blown

Fan and compressor running but no water? Maybe the room is already dry; if not than probably have coolant leak - not worth fixing

Fan will not come on.


The fan has to run if the compressor is running as the fan assists in removing the heat from the condenser coil. Can you spin the fan by hand? If there is full power(120 volts) to the fan and it isn't running then the fan motor is bad. Also, if the fan motor has a run capacitor this could keep the fan from running(if the capacitor is defective) so look for this first.

Top of dehumidifier is very hot to the touch, filter is clean don't know what to do, afraid to put it on in case of fire.


Are you running it in high ambient temperatures?
Can you see any condensate(water) on the coil?
It may be that it is running above it's temperature range. A dehumidifier has two coils(radiators if you like). One gets cold, the other gets hot. The first one renoves the moisture from the air, this is the evaporator and is cold. The heat taken from the air is absorbed into the refrigerant and is given back to the air when it passes through th other coil, the condensor which is hot. The refrigeration circuit itself produces heat. This heat plus the heat absorbed from the air has to be got rid of. If the ambient temperature is high, the condensor will have trouble getting rid of the heat from the circuit. This can cause the case to feel hot to the touch. Assuming you don't have a refrigeration leak, it may not be worth running the unit if it is not removing moisture from the air. Is any water being dropped into the bucket? If it isn't, all you are doing is wasting electricity.

Fan does not come on


I've seen abunch of these. The fan motor has a fuse wound into the windings. It cannot be replaced you need a new fan motor. The motors seem to run hot normally, leading to a short lifespan.
 I suggest buying a better brand unit.
