SOURCE: the compressor of the dehumidifier does not work

Try a hard start kit for the compressor.

SOURCE: I have a Danby Silhouette

Bryan, it may imply be a case of the humidity extraction level being set to high. Lower the level to 35% and see what happens. As far as the fan running is concerned. Most dehumidifiers are designed for the fan to run, even if the compressor doesn't turn ON. It's designed to keep the air circulating and if the humidity rises above the setting you have it on, the humidity sensor will pick up this change and turn the compressor ON.

Also, remove the air intake filter to see if it's clogged and needs cleaning. Maintain at least a minimum of 12" of free air space all around the dehumidifier. Poor air circulation will prevent the unit from working properly. As will, to low an ambient air tempeature. Most unit struggle to work at temperature between 40 & 60 degrees F.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Lori, the Danby Humidifier, Model # DDR2504 does not have a heating function. It's just a 25 pint dehumidifier. In fact, there are no Danby Dehumidifiers that have a heating function.

By, chance do you have Multifunction Air Conditioning unit, rather than a dehumidifier? If so, please provide the correct model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

No heat coming just cold air


I'm not sure exactly what you have. As you listed the problem under Problem with the Danby DDR557 Dehumidifier and then said, "no heat coming just cold air". Dehumidifiers are not designed to generate heat. Is it some other type of appliance that you have?

My Danby Dehumidifier has stopped drawing water even though the fan kicks in. Do you have any suggestions? The fan has been cleaned and the humidity setting is 35.
