Question about DeLonghi DE400P Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Have a Delonghi DE 400P Dehumidifier which does not collect any water. The fan and compressor is running and has been running for almost two days now. The filter is clean. It worked fine in May but the humidity has gotten up to 70 and the setting is 55. That is the setting we have always used. Has worked fine over the last three years until now. Help.

Welcome to FixYa
Dehumidifiers collect the water that has been removed from the air in a collection tank located at the bottom of the unit. The tank should be emptied regularly to avoid spilling. Empty the tank before the water level gets too high. Some dehumidifiers feature a continuous drain capability that allows you as the user to install a drain hose onto the unit that will direct the water to a floor drain so you will never have to empty the accumulation tank.
Not Collecting Water:

  • Check the number on the "Room" humidity display. If the number is less than the "Set Humidity" number, the machine is not drawing moisture out of the air. The dehumidifier is functioning normally.
  • Increase the "Set Humidity" number by pressing the "+" button. The higher the setting, the more water the unit will draw into the water-collection bucket.
  • Turn off the power and pull the filter out of the right side of the dehumidifier. Clean the filter in warm, soapy water, shake it dry and place it back in the dehumidifier. If the filter is clogged with dust, dirt and debris, air will not flow through the machine.
Start the unit on the lower fan setting, at a humidity level of around 60%.Then adjust the humidity level to normally use it.
After vacuumed the filter-not work-use fingers to pick lint off the filter, and ran a BIC safety razor over it as well, to try and get more out of the filter. You can also wash the filter in warm water, and leave it to dry over night. Don't put it back in till completely dry.

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."

Pressure relief tube behind the collection tank ?? should it point up or down?? model DH 400P


Down. If it's pointing up ans was activated, water could go into parts of the unit, where it doesn't belong.

I have a DeLonghi dehumidifier Model DN 40G. The fan runs but the cooling fins do not get cold. It sounds like the compressor is running because I hear it click on and off. The fins do not even get moist....
