Question about Maytag M7DH45B2A Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Dehumidifier does not remove water from the air.



The dehumidifier (17DH 45B2A) seems to run fine, but little or no water accumulates in the tank -- it doesn't seem to do anything but run the fan. Why is it not working? (We had used it satisfactorily for a couple of years before this problem developed.)

Dehumidifier seems to be running fine, but water leaking on floor even with minimal water accumulated in bucket?


Hey friend, thanks for your post!

It sounds like your dehumidifier needs to be professionally cleaned. What could be causing the problem is a buildup on the inside of your dehumidifier where the water drains out and it is causing the water to not drain properly. Additionally, I would check to verify that the drain hole is tightly secured with the plug. I know you stated that the bucket is not leaking but have you removed it to verify? Please comment back if further assist is needed. -Matt

Haier CPN12XH9 Portlable Air Conditioner/Heater - The upper water plug (which I can't find a picture of on any manual) accumulates water while the lower tank (where water should be) is dry. Unit is only...


Not up on the unit, but water condenses on the evaporator of an a/c unit dropping onto a tray, as self evaporating, would assume that the drain from that tray is fed to the top of the compresor, which will have a tray around the top, heat from the compressor will evaporate the water, same as with a fridge. In dehumidifier mode, water would need to be collected, rather than evaporated back into the atmosphere, defeats the object other wise. so is lower tank around compressor? that would be for a/c mode upper tank for dehumidifier

Does not collect water in bucket but runs all the time


Does it have a filter?

"
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."

I have a new Danby Model #DDR6009REE and have set it up and while the fan operates no water accumulates in the tank. Pressing the switch inside makes no change.

Dehumidifier is running but very little moisture is accumulating in the tank our carpet is soaked so it should be removing more moisture than it is.


In the is a wall to wall carpet, it's going to take a while. If you have a wet/dry shop vac, you can speed up the process by using the shop vac in wet mode. This will remove a great deal of water and then the dehumidifier will take care of the rest. Remember, it it's wall to wall carpet, the pad underneath is soaked too. So the dehumidifier alone, will really be struggling with it for at least 24 hours.

If it's and area rug, vacuum it to. Then drape it up off the floor over a couple of saw horses or wooden chairs, so the the dehumidifier will fit under one end like a tent. That will dry it out with in 4 or 5 hours.

Last solution, borrow another dehumidifier from a friend and run both at the same time.

Hope this helps you solve your soggy problem.

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.
