SOURCE: Dehumidier Delonghi DH400P not removing any water from the air

Only thing I can tell you to do is to make sure that the evaporator in the back is ice and cold. If the evaporator is not cold the unit will never remove moisture from the air. And if that is the case you have a sealed system problem. The unit may have a leak so there is no gas in it. The compressor may not be working or the humidstat my not be working properly. So check those thigs out or if its under warrenty call for service.

SOURCE: Connecting a drain hose

Most units have a drain connection, either on the machine itself, or in the collection pail. These connections usually fit standard garden hoses.

SOURCE: PLEASE HELP

Make sure the coils are clean. (check the inside part of the coils. If they look ok then see if your compressor is running. if its not running then it could be any number of things. I recommend that you have a pro look at it

It is more than likely the compressor is not running, only the fan.
It seams that the humidity sensor is flaky on these units. You can,
operate the unit, by opening up the dehumidifier and unplug the sensor from the main board. The unit will cycle on and off and remove the water from the air.....good luck

How do i put freon in this unit


I have had a AD75UST0 WHIRLPOOL Dehumidifier for several years. If it actually still runs, I would suggest you take off covers and give the coils a good thorough cleaning. Otherwise the units are not designed to be serviceable aka - "disposable small appliance". if you do dispose of it take it to a qualified recycle organization for Freon products.

Where is the filter on this dehumidifier. Mod# ad75ust


To locate the filter: Shut unit off. Remove "bucket". You should find a "tab" at top of where bucket goes in middle front of unit. Pull down to remove tab of Filter. Clean thoroughly and dry Filter before re installation. Visually inspect the coils and condenser while filter is out ( a flashlight helps). If it looks slightly dusty or like covered in felt, then it would be wise to remove front and rear covers and give the coils and condenser a thorough cleaning.

BUCKET DOES NOT FILL WITH WATER


It could be the coil & condensor are dirty.

Or it could be that the humidity level is below what the unit will work at. Below 50% humidity and or 70 degrees Fahrenheit, it generally will not do much.

My dehumidier blows very hot air while working. Makes it hotter than it was before starting. Like a furnace.


It is normal for a dehumidifier to discharge warm air. A dehumidifier is really an air conditioner - a fan blows humid room air across a cold fin coil that causes the moisture to condense on it and drip into a container - thus cooling AND dehumidifying the air. The cool air is blown over the warm coil and discharged out the back. A dehumidifier WILL normally increase the temperature of the room it is in.
You can do the same thing with sitting an A/C unit on a stool in a room. Room air will be drawn in, cold air will come out the front, hot air out the back and water will drip on the floor. And, the room will get hotter, due to what is called "heat of compression" even though you're running an A/C unit.

Error Code CH 01


I have a Comfortaire BHD501 dehumidifier. A couple weeks ago I noticed ice building up on top of the unit,so I unplugged it to defrost. I plugged it back in and it worked until I noticed the "CH" "01" code. It would run a few seconds then shut off with that code showing. I took off the front of the unit and noticed rust on some of the metal parts. Then I took the cover off the circuit board for the front read out. I noticed corrosion on some of the solder points. When I looked closer at the plastic cover for the circuit board I noticed a small burn mark. The water from the melting ice must have run behind the cover and shorted out the circuitboard. At this point I don't know if new boards are available.
