New Haier HD456 dehumidifier question

Hi;
I just purchased the unit, and am not sure whether or not to remove the protective plastic film from the top of the water level float in the bucket.
My first impression is that it is there to protect during shipping, but I really can't see that it would make a difference. The float will rise up as the water below it rises whether or not the top is open or covered.

    The outer protective plastic peeled away, there is a hard, permanent clear plastic over the part which does not remove.
    Works fine, no issues.

If it does not interfere with the operation with the plastic left on use it.

It is meant to be on. Do NOT remove it.

Does the Fan on a Haier HD456E always run,


I believe the fan is designed to run all the time, and no, it costs very little to run an 18w fan. You can use a timed socket, or switch it on and off when needed. I don't believe the Haier has specific switching times.

This is not a new unit and has never had a problem before now. It runs as though normal but it does not collect any water at all. All things you say to check have been done.


Since you have already done the things we say to do, with no success and yours is not a new unit. It may be time to replace it. As often is the case, repairing older units can cost as much or more than a price new one. If you have been satisfied up to now with Haier, purchase another one from them. Their new electronic models are Energy Star Rated. However, this time if you do, also purchase and extended warranty. In the long run, it could pay for itself.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

THE UNIT DOES NOT DEHUMIDIFY, MODEL HD456E, I SET THE TEMPERATURE TO 50 AND IT ALWAYS SHOWS THE WORD "LO" AND WILL NOT RUN, UNIT HAS LESS THAN 200 HRS. WHAT DO I DO? unit was purchased at menards...


You are setting the temperature to low. Dehumidifiers do not work well between 40 - 60 degrees F. That's why the word "LO" keeps showing up. Raise the temperature setting and set the humidity extraction level (Arrow Down) at 30-32%. In fact, if you can disregard the temperature setting and the unit will work, do so. That seems to be the fly in the ointment, when it comes to getting everything to work as it should.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

UNIT TURNS ON AND RUNS BUT NO WATER IS IN THE RESEVOIR BUCKET TO EMPTY, IT RUNS PERFECT BUT JUST DOES COLLECT ANY WATER AT ALL. UNIT IS ALMOST BRAND NEW, EVERYTHING STILL LOOKS NEW BUT WON'T COLLECT ANY...


The air intake filter may need cleaning. Also, check the humidity setting. You may have it set to low. In addition, it wouldn't hurt to check the drain tube or drain hole (whichever one your unit has) that's just above the bucket. You'll see it once you remove the bucket. It may be clogged and is not allowing the water to drain properly. Using a 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (No wire coat hangers) that will comfortably fit into the hole ... Carefully and gently run it as far as you can into the drain hole or tube. The tricky part is when you reach the bend in the tube. So, tread carefully. Once you have it inserted as far possible, as you rotate the Zip Tie, slowly pull it out. Rotating it, will loosen any debris. Be prepared for water to follow.

If none of the above solves the problem, the compressor in the dehumidifier may be low on refrigerant gas and will need to be recharged.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

The dehumidifier will run, but will not collect any moisture from the air. The screen has been cleaned, the tub is cleaned, but no water will collect.

It runs and sounds normal but there is no water in the collection tray and the ambient air is notably damp


Sounds to me like you are low on refrigerant if you can hear the compressor running. Its not worth to pay to get this fixed unless you know someone who can do it for you, cheaper to get a new one
