    The dehumidifier does not take the humidity out of the air. The fan runs but not the compressor. I have cleaned the filter and changed the humidity up and down to no avail. Any suggestions?

It is more than likely the compressor is not running, only the fan.
It seams that the humidity sensor is flaky on these units. You can,
operate the unit, by opening up the dehumidifier and unplug the sensor from the main board. The unit will cycle on and off and remove the water from the air.....good luck

Kenmore dehumidifier compressor on but doesn't collect water


clean the condenser in the front or the filter if it has one. no air flow to cool it down will result in overheating and no condensation collection across the evaporator coil.

My LG Dehumidifier's fan does not seem to be operating. The filter is clean, the motor runs, but no air circulates through the machine and no water collects in the bucket. I bought it on 10/22/2006.
