    - The unit does not continue working no matter how long I wait for it to defrost. How do I know the problem isn't the condenser assembly ($77.71), the condenser ($9.97) or the humidity sensor ($51.64). Thanks.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. E3 error indicates that moisture sensor has failed and should be replaced. The cost to repair this will be around $300 including labor however, prior to replacing the part take the unit apart (only recommended if it’s out of warranty), then check the back of unit and take the filter off. Once this is done clean the sensor (moisture sensor) with a brush and blow some air with the help of hair dryer. There is another sensor which is pushed into a copper tube which is part of the cooling tube; you’ll need to clean this one the same way. All this is only recommended if you have some electrical expertise. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

"E3" code the condensor sensor is bad.It has to be checked and replaced. E3 error message which apparently means the air is working and it has internal frost. It then stops cooling the air and waits for itself to defrost.


Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    The unit does not continue working no matter how long I wait for it to defrost. I have turned it off and will wait to see if that does anything. How do I know the problem isn't the condenser assembly ($77.71), the condenser ($9.97) or the humidity sensor ($51.64). Thanks.

An E 3 error code comes up and I don't have a manual to determine what the codes mean.


An E3 error code is a Sensor Shutdown Failure. You will need to contact Haier Customer Support for an explanation on which sensor it is and how to solve the problem.

The e3 is displayed and beeps ran only a month or two


The E3 Code, indicates that the air intake filter needs to be removed and cleaned. Be sure the unit is OFF and unplugged before removing the filter. Filter cleaning should be performed at least once every two weeks, as part of Routine Maintenance.

Hope this helped you.

Our delonghi de400p dehumidifier shows an E3 error message. Customer Service says its a sensor but can't tell us what sensor. Any help would be appreciated.


I have a 40 pint and a 50 pint that are very similar. The 40 pint has the e3 error. Experimenting with the 50 pint, I found if I disconnected a particular sensor I got the e3 error. That sensor is a little can with two black wires (smaller than a AAA battery but shaped like that). It is attached to the cooling coils so must be a temperature sensor. This is not the little circuit board sensor mounted in the middle of the radiator in a plastic box/clip thing.

I am now about to see that part to see if I can replace it.

Delonghi Dehumidifier DE500P - Code E3


Hi Thomast5263,
I live in NJ and the nearest center is in CT. So you can imagine that I am not gonna to ship my unit! :-)
The one I got is from Hartford, CT Utility Electric Service: 860-246-7271; talk to Dana and he is very helpful. They charged me $25 and shipped me the part and it now works fine.
When I talked to Dana he sounded pretty sure it was the condensor sensor. Simply call Dana and tell him that you have an "E3" code. I do NOT know the part number or ID.
Don't open the unit until you get the new part ---- it will help you to identify the part to be replaced. After you get the part, make sure you mark down all the screws (they are not the same! so pay attention which one is where). There are two tabs on the top so be careful when get them separate apart ---- don't force it or you might break it. The sensor itself is attached/stuck in between the copper coils under a black cover. Plug another end to the control board and you are done. Apparently there are two kinds of plug-in end ---- the first part Dana shipped to me did not match the old part so he has to send me another one which worked.
The whole procedure is not that difficult, but when you are doing this the first time you just need to be patient to locate all the screws and sparate the covers. From my experience you do need to take all covers off, otherwise you can not see the part and the wire.
Good luck to you and let me know the good news!

I am searching for a resolution to the E3 code (same init) and happened upon this request. The manual can be downloaded from DeLonghi.com but that advises you to call the service center.

E3 error


I got mine fixed tonight! It was not that easy but can be done.
After my last post, I called the customer service of DeLonghi. The agent can only refer me to the authorized repair shops but she does not know what “E3” meant. There is no shop in NJ where I live, and the closest one is in CT! One of the two shops there knows right away the E3 is the fault of a condenser sensor. He mailed me the part ($25) and I took the covers off (be very careful to record where the screws are from ---- they are not all the same size/shape, and also there are two small tabs on the top holding two cover pieces together, so don’t force it to open or you will break it). There is only one part looks like the same as the replacement part I newly obtained and it has a metal clip attached on the copper coils. Carefully replace the sensor on the coil as you find previously and plug the other end to the control board. It sounds lengthy but once you open the cover it will all become clear to you. Be patient and this can be done. Very glad to see/hear it is working now again!

p.s., the store first mailed me the wrong part (on the plug-in end it has two ridges rather than one) so I have to call them again to explain and they mailed me a different one with a single ridge. Apparently there are two types (old and new model) for this model.
