What is causing ice build up on the coil bottom left? Whirlpool model AD50GEUSW dehumidifier?


Ice buildup is most often caused by low freon. Is the unit 10 years old or more? Might need a recharge. Turn it off and let it thaw then back on. If it ices up again, it likely needs a recharge.

After an hour, the refrigeration unit begins to freeze up. Condensation appears on top of the dehumidifier cabinet. I have eliminated all obstructions to air flow, including the filter. What can I do?


Hi,

The most common cause of frost and ice buildup on a dehumidifier is because the unit is operating in temperatures that are too cold. Many dehumidifiers are not equipped to run at temperatures below 65 degrees Fahrenheit.
To fix this problem, Position the dehumidifier in an area where there is at least one foot of clearance around the unit in order to allow for proper air circulation during its operation. Close all windows, doors and other outside openings to make sure your unit isn't attempting to remove moisture from areas outside of the immediate room. Determine the temperature of the room by checking a nearby thermostat or by using a hand-held thermometer.

Check the filter for dirt and buildup. Unplug the unit from the electrical source and check the filter by opening the filter compartment. If the filter is dirty, it will restrict airflow through the unit and lead to freezing. Soleus recommends lightly vacuuming the surface of the filter to remove dirt. The filter also can be washed in warm water if it is extremely dirty. Once clean, place the filter back in its compartment. Allow for the ice to melt and then restart your dehumidifier.

Ice build-up on Danby Dehumidifier DDR583R


Make sure you have enough air moving over the coils. There is an air filter on some models which may be obstructed. Insufficient air flow will cause your problem.
