Question about Maytag M7DH45B2A Dehumidifier
The water tank may be completely filled. Most dehumidifiers have a safety switch to turn the dehumidifier off when the water tank is full. It is usually a float inside the tank to trigger this switch and prevent the tank from overflowing. If the tank is empty and the unit doesn’t run, look at the inside wall against which the tank pushes to see if there’s a switch or mechanism present. Sometimes just pushing in the bucket a little differently will press the switch. Also, you may be able to activate or bend the switch slightly with your finger to solve the problem.
If the above is not the problem, check the air filter to see if it is clogged. A clogged filter may restrict the airflow through the machine and keep it from dehumidifying the room. Clean the filter with a vacuum cleaner. If the filter is especially dirty, clean it with warm water and rinse it repeatedly. Let the filter dry and install it in the machine.
Another cause of the machine not dehumidifying a room if the defrosting device was activated. This will happen if ice starts to form on the compressor. Turn off the dehumidifier and let it sit for 30 minutes. To prevent this from occurring, raise the temperature of the room to hinder the formation of ice.
The the above does not solve the problem, then your dehumidifier is due for servicing. Contact the nearest service man to help fix the problem.
