Hi, sure it's normal. A dehumidifier works alot like an air-conditioner. Since warm air holds more moisture than cold air, it cools the air to remove the moisture. The heat energy that has been removed from the air has to be exhausted (as well as the heat it takes to run the machine itself).

Take care

    Whao! It sounds as if the unit has lost it's refrigerant charge. Take to
    small appliance repair for confirmation, but it probably leaked out.

Fridigaire dehumidifier compressor gets very hot and no water in bucket


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that the compressor is getting very hot and there is no water in the bucket of your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# LAD704TDL. I would check to make sure that your dehumidifier has enough ventilation. There should be a minimum of 12 inches clearance around your dehumidifier. Also, make sure that it is neither too hot, nor too cold where you have placed your dehumidifier. Your appliance is designed to operate between 41 degrees Fahrenheit and 96 degrees Fahrenheit. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your dehumidifier status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

If nothing at all works, its most likely a control (switch or stat). Be very careful if you try jumping them. Line voltage is dangerous if your not sure of what your doing.

I have an Aprilaire 1750 installed inline with my upstairs central air system in the attic. The unit's ducting appears to be installed as indicated in the installation manual, but when the unit is running...


Your dehumidifier is likely working correctly. When operating and removing moisture, a dehumidifier will supply warm/hot air to your house. Your dehumidifier moves less air than your A/C, so your supply ductwork in your house is oversized for the dehumidifier. This will lead to uneven feeding of your supply duct branches with just the dehumidifier operating.

Since your dehumidifier is installed in the attic, make sure that the ducting connected to it is well insulated. Also make sure that your dehumidifier cabinet is insulated. These actions will help prevent heat gain from the hot air in your attic.

Is your dehumidifier bringing in fresh air from outside? If the outside air is hot and humid, the dehumidifier will supply warmer air to your home.

Some people run their A/C fans continuously to help with the air distribution, but this is a bad idea since it increases energy usage considerably.

Again, if your model is one that can be used in cooler temps so as not to ice up, the heat prevents this.
