Many times on a dehumidifier we hear the fan run...and think all is ok. But the key is if the compressor is running. Listen for the "refrigerator" type sound ....It must first be determined if the compressor is running...and if so is the filter and the coil behind the filter clean

Can it be used in toilet ? The walls are damp due to basement


It can be used in a bathroom in a safe place. It might taut of the bowel and drain traps but should not take any water out of the tank an air conditioner is a big humidifier so if you have an A/C you already have some moister being taken out. And a heating unit takes even more out then the A/C so I would say no problem.

Is there a call back on unit lad704tdl dehumidifier


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you are wondering if there is a recall on your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# LAD704TDL. I see that the bucket is not filling with water when your appliance is running. I don't believe there are any recalls. I suggest contacting the manufacturer for further assistance. They should be able to point you in the right direction. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

My kenmore 5949 dehumidifier is not lowering the humidity in my basement. The unit is on and the fan is running, but the humidity stays at 99 percent.


Is the water tank filling up? That will verify that the unit is really functioning normally. If so, is it possible that outside air is infiltrating the space?

I have a sunbeam 1387 warm mist humidifier. I need to know how to clean scale from the filter. It looks like it can be taken apart. Can it?


Actually, Carol, it shouldn't be necessary to take the unit apart. Mix a 50/50 solution of White Distilled Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank). Pour the solution in and allow it to sit overnight. Then empty the solution and fill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water. Turn the unit ON and allow it to run for 1 hour. Then empty any remaining Distilled Water. Doing all the aforementioned, should have not only cleaned the filter, but also the unit itself. If you use Bottled Distilled Water in the future, rater than tap water, the filter and the plumbing of the unit will stay clean longer and will require less maintenance.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Makes a loud beep every minute or so. Doesn't seem like basket is filling with water either.


Turn the Master ON/Off Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Remove the air intake filter and clean it. Allow it to thoroughly dry, before reinstalling it. Once the filter is thoroughly dry, reinstall it, plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity level at 35% and allow the unit to run as you normally would. The beating should have stopped, since you cleaned the filter. Be sure to maintain at least 2 feet of clear air space around the dehumidifier.

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

Runs and allows you to adjust settings, but no water ever fills bucket


Hi,

First, make sure the humidistat isn't set too high by adjusting it to the lowest humidity setting and running it again. Next, test the dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower running. If you don't see water collecting in the unit after several minutes, turn the unit off and clean all dehumidifier filters and coils. If, after adjusting the settings and cleaning the unit, you still don't see water collecting, you may have a refrigeration issue. This situation will have to be addressed by a qualified technician.

Take care.

Haier dehumidifier will turn on but does not collect water.


hello. If your dehumidifier doesn't seem to run often but the humidity in the room is high, try adjusting the humidistat control on the dehumidifier to a dryer setting. If the dehumidifier seems to run constantly, but there's little or no water in the container, there may be a problem in the refrigeration system. Try cleaning the unit. If that doesn't work, you can't repair the refrigeration system yourself, you need a qualified appliance repair technician to do that.

My kenmore 50 pint dehumidifier 54501 runs but it does not taking in water


You need to determine what's "running". Here's why: There are three things that must be working to extract water. The 'coil' (a finned metal part that needs air to flow across its surface) may be filled with dust and obstructions, so no air can move...then no water. There is a blower motor that must move the air. If it is seized up and not blowing air...very little or no water. The compressor creates condensation from air moving across the coil (like the moisture than forms on an ice filled glass on a humid day) to extract the water from the air. If it's not working then no water.
So, if there is air blowing out of the dehumidifier the blower is working. If the air is room temp the compressor is not working. If it's real hot air, and the humidifier keeps cycling on and off quickly, the coil is dirty. Those are the 3 things that need to be working.

Oil inside the water collection res


the compressor runs in oil. suspect you have a quite bad leak and loss all the gas - hence no water collection and the compressor oil is being pumped out thro the leak
