Why compressor comes on for a second then shuts off


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that the compressor on your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD504TDD, comes on for a second and then shuts off. First, make sure that when you are first turning your dehumidifier on that you put it in continuous mode. After about 3 days of continuous mode, set your appliance to the humidity level you would like. Secondly, the "Compressor" circuit has an automatic 3 minute time delayed start if the unit is turned off and on quickly. This prevents overheating of the compressor and possible circuit breaker tripping. Thirdly, make sure the tank is fitted correctly otherwise your dehumidifier will not turn on. Lastly, make sure your dehumidifier has sufficient clearance to operate. There should be a minimum of 12 inches clearance around your dehumidifier. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your dehumidifier status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

The compressor and fan are running, however, there is no water coming out. RH is 70, temp is 66. This is after replacing a blower that had already seized up 2 years ago.


The dehumidifier should be removing water at 66F 70%rh.

First make sure that the compressor and fan are running. If they are, then turn the dehumidifier off and unplug the cord from the wall outlet. Next remove the front cover from the dehumidifier. Examine the evaporator coil (about 1/2 way up) beneath the plastic heat exchanger and above the stainless steel drain pan.

If the evaporator coil is cold and completely covered with frost & ice, the defrost thermostat may be defective. Replace the front cover. turn the humidity dial to "off". Plug the dehumidifier in to the wall outlet and set the fan switch to on - the fan will run (no compressor). Run this way for one hour to defrost the evaporator. Now adjust the humidity dial to your desired humidity and keep an eye on the dehumidifier. If it freezes up again and does not automatically defrost, the defrost thermostat should be replaced. Call the manufacturer at 1-800-533-7533 for parts and instructions.

If the evaporator coil is (mostly) warm and free of frost and ice, it is likely that some of the dehumidifier refrigerant has leaked out. this type of service should be done by a (refrigerant) certified technician. Call the manufacturer at 1-800-533-7533 for help with this service.

The dehumidifier shut off automatically but will not come back on. Model M7DH45B2A


If the unit shut off automatically, because it had reached the humidity extraction level you had it set on. It won't turn back ON again, until the humidity level rises above the setting you have it on. Lowering the humidity extraction level to 32 -35%, should make it start up again and cycle like it should. If your unit does not have an LED Screen, set the manual control on Maximum.Be sure the bucket is not full and the air intake filter is clean.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

How do i check if its working correctly


If you want to give it the ultimate in-home test. Put the dehumidifier in the bathroom with the door closed and a hot shower running, but do not turn on the bathroom exhaust fan. Set the dehumidifier's controls as low as possible and let it run for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, return to the bathroom, turn the shower OFF and check the water collection bucket for water. The unit will probably be running anyway, when you return to the bathroom.

Remember, the lower the setting, the more the unit will run and collect water. Until it either reaches the humidity level you have it set for or the bucket is full and the unit automatically turns OFF

That's the best way to test a dehumidifier at home. Hope it helps you.
Please let me know.

Dehumidifier automatic on and off function not working


Unless you live in a dry environment or place the unit in a hermetically sealed room, it probably will not turn off. As the air dries within the room, more moisture comes in with the air. As long as the air outside of the room is more humid than the room this will be true.

Frigidare Dehumidifier will not turn off


Pressure and temperature is directly related with refrigerants in the system. Ice building on part of the coils shows that the pressure inside the system is low and the system has lost some of its charge. Very low humidity with a low ambient temperature will also cause such a problem.
