Ice is forming on the top of the unit, it is running but not very much water is collecting


Ice will often form if the humidity level is high or the air intake filter needs cleaning. If it's because of high humidity or being used in a basement, the unit may appear to still be running, but it's usually just the fan and it's going thru a defrost cycle.

If you check the filter, be sure to turn the Master ON/OFF Switch OFF and unplug the unit. Remove the filter and clean if necessary. If you wash the filter, use warm water and dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry completely, before reinstalling it. DO NOT run the dehumidifier without the filter installed.

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

Just stopped working. When I turn unit on the power light comes on for about 2 seconds then goes off, nothing else happens. Any ideas?


It may simply be that the water collection bucket is not installed properly or the air intake filter is clogged.

Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Remove the air intake filter and clean it, if necessary. While the unit is unplugged and OFF, remove the water collection bucket and reinstall it. Making sure that the bucket fits "squarely" from top to bottom, in the bucket holder. It must make contact with the bucket safety removal switch, to activate the unit. Once you have reinstalled the bucket, make sure the bottom of the bucket is not tilting downward.

If you cleaned the filter, be sure it is totally dry, before reinstalling it. Then plug the unit back in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and if everything was done correctly, the unit should start and run. DO NOT OPERATE THE UNIT, WITHOUT THE AIR INTAKE FILTER INSTALLED.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

I acquired used Amcor AHD65 Dehumidifier a couple days ago. I was told that it is just beyond the warranty period. I assume that it is a barely a year old. However, It worked this evening a sort since it...


You may still have some packaging materials left inside the unit. The plastic pan doesn't stay in side the bucket. It's used as a drain pan on the outside. Also, be sure the air intake filter is in place, is clean and there are no packaging materials behind it.

To extract more humidity, after checking all the things mentioned above. Lower the extraction level to 32 to 35%. Lower percentages means extraction of more humidity. (i.e.200% -35% = 5% drop in humidity).

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

Dehumdifier not collecting water.


It may be that the humidity level or temperature in the room where your dehumidifier is located is too low.

When the outdoor temperature is below 50 F, the indoor air will be dry even when the air inside is warm, therefore when it's cold outside the dehumidifier may collect little or no water.

Air conditioners will also remove moisture from the room, even if it's hot and humid outside, resulting in little or no moisture collecting in the dehumidifier bucket.

Some dehumidifiers have a deicer which turns off the compressor but keeps the fan running. When the compressor is off, moisture is not removed from the air. The deicer turns off the compressor when the room temperature is cold.

Some dehumidifiers do not have a deicer. If the room temperature is low enough, ice may form on the evaporator coil. The ice prevents the dehumidifier from removing and collecting water. If ice forms on coils, unplug dehumidifier until ice melts and room temperature rises.

The filter (on some models) may be dirty or clogged. If so, clean the filter. For instructions on cleaning the filter.

I hope this help to solve, if this answer solve it, remember to rate it. Good luck.

It is not producing water, it runs but no water is collecting in pan.


Hello,

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.
