I have a LAD704DUL frigidaire dehumidifier that will not shut off after being shut off, and not until the plug is pulled. Is this worth getting fixed


Dear Peter Nicolle,

according to the user manual the dehumidifier will not stop running for the following 5 reasons:

  • Windows or doors near dehumidifier are open to outdoors.
  • Area to be dehumidified is too large.
  • Air movement through dehumidifier is blocked.
  • Dehumidifier has been installed or restarted recently.
  • Dehumidifier is in the CONTINUOUS mode.
You can find more information on the user manual on page 9 under the category DEHUMIDIFIER RUNS TOO MUCH.

Why is my Kenmore Energy Star 50 pint model 251-50501012 dehumidifier leaking water after I disconnected the drain hose


If you reconnect the drain hose, make sure that it lays flat from the dehumidifier and into the sump pump hole. I did that and it solved my problem of water leaking onto the floor.

Why does blower wheel stop on Frigidaire dehumdifier?


Good Afternoon Desi,

I understand that the blower wheel is not spinning on your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD504DUD. I also see that the compressor will stay on unless the dehumidifier is unplugged. I suggest you contact the manufacturer for further assistance. They can possibly clarify why the compressor stays on and why the blower fan is not working. If not, they should at least be able to point you in the right direction of having your dehumidifier working. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My 35 pint (42 54351) dehumidifier is only ~2 years old. It will not stay on, even though the basement is very damp. Is there anything I can do?


There are 5 basic, but solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If you have an analog unit, set
the humidity extraction knob on Maximum.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

I hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Dehumidifier model 54351 shuts off after 3 minutes of operation, in either mode. Is there a problem with the red cut off switch?


Gregory, the problem may lie in where you have the humidity extraction level set. It may be set to high. Try lowering it to 32 -35%. If your unit does not have an LED Screen, turn the manual control to Maximum. Also, check the bucket to make sure it's installed properly and making contact with the bucket removal safety switch. When reinstalling the bucket, be sure that it fit's "squarely" from top to bottom into the bucket holder. Also, check the air intake filter. It may need serious cleaning.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

I have a kenmore 54351 model dehumidifier. It wont come back on the auto shut off light keeps flashing. The tank has been emptied. Its not even a year old yet.


There is a switch that is activated when you slide the tank back into the unit after you empty it. If the tank is not in just right it will not activate this swith. You might look for it and try pressing it with your finger to see if it is working. Not sure about your model but be careful not to shock youself! The switch should be insulated and is really just an interlocked relay...
