    I have the same problem. In spite of our extremely wet spring, very little water is collecting. We used the air compressor to try cleaning out any dirt. If I turn it up very much, the coils freeze over.

    Dehumidifier runs, but no water collects. I cleaned the coils and the filter.

It's possible that the coil has become extremely dirty. It can be cleaned, but to do it well requires removing the external housing to better access the coil. I had a similar problem where the dehumidifier ran and the coil became quite cold but would not condensate. A thorough cleaning has it working as good as ever. Compressed air is not sufficient to remove the dirt accumulation, it must be physically scrubbed or rinsed from the surface. I used a rag pulled back and forth to scrub between the coils in areas where I couldn't reach to dislodge the grime with my fingers.

My dehumidifier runs but no water will collect in the bucket. I ahve tried increasing the percentage. My basement is plenty damp!! Model504EL


Mine had the same problem: ran, sounded great, no water. Feel the coils. Mine never cooled down - stayed at room temp. No refridgerant left in the coils. It's a gas and can leak out. Expensive to recharge. Get a new one.

My dehumidifier does not collect any water.


One of two things is happening here.

1. Either the compressor isn't running or...

2. The water is not being routed to the collection bucket properly. This dehumidifier has an option to connect to a hose that can be routed to a drain. Look in the back of the unit to see if you see a connection that could accomidate a garden hose. If you see this and there is no hose connected you may be dumping the water on the floor instead of the bucket. This could explain why your carpets are damp.

You didn't say what humidity range you have it set for, or how damp of an area it is dehumidifying. The one in my basement also never shuts off and we have it set for the lowest humidity (meaning we don't want any down there). If you think it should be shutting off you might want to get another Humidistat they are $33.05 at this link, http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/search/partinfo.php?partsID=278698&modelsID=118670&typeName=dehumidifier
