My dehumidifier does not seem to be working properly. I can't find the manual to tell me what the settings should be. Would appreciate your help. It is a DeLonghi DE400P. Thanks Shirley


What is the specific problem? Is no water being collected by the dehumidifier or do you have another issue?

Make sure that the dehumidifier is in a room in the operating temperature range (at or above 44 degrees F). Make sure that the room door and windows are closed and that the room is not larger than 2200 square feet. Make sure that the collection bucket not full and is properly seated in the dehumidifier. Check and clean the air filter on the dehumidifier. (Vacuum the filter or rinse under running water three times. Then wait until dry to replace it in the dehumidifier.) Look at the coils of the dehumidifier. If you have ice on the coils, defrost the unit (turn off, unplug and wait for it to melt). If the ice reforms quickly, you may have a leak in the coolant system. Then the unit needs repair.

Next make sure that you have good air flow around the dehumidifier and that the desired humidity set point is lower than the humidity of the room.


Retrevo has the manual available: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Delonghi-DE400P-Heating-Cooling-and-Air-manual/id/19269bh037/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to download the PDF.

I hope this helps.

My Goldstar dehumidifier model DH304 runs,but fails to pick up any water


If the room air is less than the set air, then there is no water in the bucket, because there is almost no humidity in the air. If it is winter, there is likely not enough humidity in the air to have water collect in the bucket. A dehumidifier will only pick up humidity out of warm air. If you are running a dehumidifier in your basement in the winter, the room may be damp, but too cold for the dehumidifier to pull out the humidity. Try running the unit in the bathroom after having a hot shower without the bathroom fan on. If working correctly the unit should draw water.

Other things that can cause problems: 1.Check to see if the air filter is dirty and/or blocked. 2. The room temperature might be too low, (below 60 degrees Fahrenheit ) 3. Check to make sure that there is no obstruction to the unit that might be causing poor airflow circulation.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem.

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.

My whirlpool dehumidifier fan runs, but no water is being taken out of the air; cleaned the filter and still no change; dehumidifier was purchased in August 2008.


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.

This summer I have ice build up on top of the unit. I have a drain hose so the bucket is not full. I have cleaned the air filter. I have also removed the front grill and used a fine brush to remove dust...


Hi,

The coils you see on the back of your dehumidifier are the evaporator. When the unit runs, the coils get very cold. As the fan draws the room air over the coils, the humidity in the air condenses out of the air onto the cold coils. But, if the temperature of the air the fan draws over the coils is too cool, the humidity that condenses out of the air freezes on the coils.

To remedy this problem, you can try any of these:
Warm up the room the dehumidifier is in.

Put the dehumidifier on a sturdy table (the room air is coolest near the ground).

Turn the unit off until the room warms up.

Take care.

My GE Dehumidifier fan is working fine, but the bucket is not getting water. I cleaned the filter.


a dehumidifier can only remove water from the air that is humid. have you checked the humidity of the room ti see if it is high or low?

In the winter the average room air is sometimes so dry that one have to add water with a humidifier.
did you check if this is not the case?

Unit runs but doesn't pull humidity out of room, filter clean


Possibly lost refrigerant from system- check warm air is coming out of machine. Otherwise it could be dirty filters, and not getting enough air over evaporating coil. Other than this, replacing parts is usually more expensive than buying a new dehumidifier :(

I have the same problem, just started it after not using it for the winter and it runs and runs and no water. I believe the coolant has leaked from the sealed system and there is nothing you can do. I've had it for 1 year and it has a 5 year warranty. I know from experience, this is the 3rd dehumidifier that I have had this problem with, all different brands. Call for service, I am betting you have not had it very long.

IS THE ROOM HUMIDITY LOW. IF IT IS BELOW 30% THE HUMIDISTAT WILL SHUT DOWN THE UNIT. THE AMMBIENT TEMP SHOULD BE ABOVE 65 DEGREES AND THE HUMIDITY SHOULD BE ABOVE 50 %.
