Hi! The board may be dusty and needs compressed air for it to be cleared. Try it and it may work. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Best to add humidistat to AC or purchase stand alone dehumidifier. For Florida summers, house unoccupied


That would depend upon the size of the dwelling. If it is a smaller, open-concept type of place, a stand-alone will work fine. If it to operate unattended, you would need to have a drain available to collect the moisture collected so the unit would not fill up and shut off. If the place is larger or has many rooms where air flow is restricted, then the humistat is the better option, since it will use the homes HVAC system to recycle the air and remove the excess humidity. Also, since the A/C coil in the air handler is already connected to a drain, moisture removal becomes a non-issue.

It's been standing for around 2 years unused. Fitted new battery,indicators horn,brake lights all work. No ignition ligh,turns over, but won't start. Was working fully before 2 years unused


After sitting so long did you drain out the old gas as well you could have a dirty and plugged carburetor. Just to try an experiment take the spark plugs out and squirt a little gas into the plug hole and put the plugs back in and hook up the wires and see if it tries to start. If it does then you know the carburetor or dirty gas lines needs cleaning. if you do this several times there is a chance it may keep on running..If there is a gas filter it may need changing.

Hi, Kenmore Dehumidifier 4254501. Brand new last


Now that you've had a chance to vent your frustration, Mike. Did you check the outlet the unit is plugged into, to make sure that it's working? Amazingly enough, I answer questions like yours all the time. And, you know what? 80% of the time, the problem is with the outlet. It's either the circuit breaker was tripped or the interior of the receptacle was damaged. And that's not counting a loose wire connection on the receptacle. So, either test the receptacle or plug the unit into another one, that's on a different circuit.

If by chance you have to replace any parts, your Kenmore Dehumidifier was manufactured for Sears, by Whirlpool. So, parts are interchangeable. And, as my son says, "If all else fails, read the Owner's Manual.

We just bought our dehumidifier a week ago. It seems to run only on short cycles starting up for a couple of minutes then shutting off for a few and thencoming back on. It is very annoying and doesn't seem...


Still have the receipt? cause if its a stand alone i would say return it, short cycling could be anything from bad sensor or controls to it over heating etc., if its one on your central system, well fire your installer and call a reputable contractor.
The only thing that could cause it to short cycle it other wise would be a half opened half closed float contact switch on the internal storage for the h20 removed form the air (assuming its a prattle stand alone eat that is)

I have an lg dehumidifier LHD 45EL. The humidity reading reads 15% higher than a stand alone humidistat and the unit will go on for a short time even though the set humidity level is 70%. What gives?


Possibly the primary humidity sensor behind right side grill. Unit MUST be unplugged from outlet. Take right side grill out, unplug sensor from wire socket and plug back. If no help, you need new sensor.

I have a Kenmore 54701 dehumidfier, less than 2 year old. the power is on, a fan seems to be running, I no longer hear a compressor turn and, and no water is collected?


The sealed system of the Kenmore 54701 dehumidifier is warranted (Parts & Labor) by Sears for five (5) years. Since the fan in your unit runs but the compressor doesn't, I suggest that you return it to Sears and request (demand) a new replacement unit under their warranty. I say "demand" because Sears will undoubtedly tell you that the problem is due to some "other" component which is not covered, and will charge you mega-bucks to repair it. Been there - - done that.

FYI, read the (very low) customer reviews of these units on Sears website and you'll see you're not alone in your experience with Sears' inferior quality units.

Above all, do NOT pay to have it repaired. That money is better spent on the purchase of a far more reliable brand of dehumidifier - - (which will most likely cost less that what you paid for the Sears unit).

Unit trips out circuit after a few minutes (20Amp stand alone circuit)


make sure that the circuit breaker for the electrical plug is not faulty, cause after a long lifetime of high amperage flowing through it, the springs will start to get weak. If this is the case then you need to replace the electrial breaker. Otherwise, make sure that the power system on the system is not pulling too much current, Or that there is not a faulty breaker inside the printer itself, which has become weak.

or you can remove all of the plugs from the console: AC, remote sensor, AV. This is important: You must also unplug the AC from the electrical outlet. Then wait 45 seconds, then plug the AC adapter back into the wall and your console. Power On.
