Coil_Freezes_Up on a model DDR4507EE danby dehumidifier


If the unit runs normally and the coils are just icing up, then that probably means the unit itself is actually working well, but you probably just have the settings turned up too high for the conditions.



Try turning down the setting on the unit so that it cycles on and off every few hours and does not run continuously.



Also try using some warm soapy water to clean off any dust or oily residue from the cooling coils in the rear of the unit. Remember to also clean the air intake filter while you are at it.



The ambient temperature in the room may also be a bit too low, so you can try adding some heat to the room if necessary. A dehumidifier will not work properly if the ambient air temperature is too low. Basically, the warmer and more humid the room is, the better they work. Since warm air rises, you can even try lifting the unit higher up off the cold floor onto a bench or table where the air is warmer.

I have no power to my LG Dehumidifier lhd45ely7. I left it running and came in my basement and it will not turn on. I saw the filter was completely filthy and cleaned that but it still did not turn back...


Scott, first make sure that tere is still electric power to the unit. Check the circuit breaker for that outlet to see if it's been tripped. Or perhaps, there's a loose wire connection in the receptacle. If all that checks out as good. If the circuit breaker has been tripped unplug the unit, before resting the breaker. Also, check the water collection bucket to see if it's full. If it is, empty it and properly reinstall it in it's holder

In addition, there are 5 basic, yet solvable reason for what you described.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%
.
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 helped you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My D40 runs OK but I am getting absolutely zero moisture removal. I hear it runing but when I smelled dampness in my basement for a few days I looked at it and discovered that is bone dry. Is it shot? ...


No, it's probably not shot. Just may need some adjustments. Below are the common causes of the problem you're having.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32 - 35%

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged and needs to be removed and cleaned.

3. Clear air obstruction. Maintain at least 12" of clear air space around the entire unit, while in operation.

4. The ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees F. This is particularly true in basement applications. Raise the unit up off the floor, onto a sturdy table, cabinet, etc, that will hold the weight of the unit, plus a full tank of water. The air temp at chest level is warmer than floor level in a basement. Unless, your dehumidifier is what's called a Low Temperature Model (designed for basements) it may be contributing to the problem. Although, based on all the odds, numbers 1 & 2 above, are going to be the culprit.

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

Hello, The unit runs, but there is no water coming into thebucket. Any ideas? Thanks, Gary


Gary there are several basic things that may cause the problem you're having. All are easy to troubleshoot and solve:

1. Humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32 - 35%

2. The air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Remove and clean the filter following the manufacturer's recommendations.

3. Not enough clear air space around the entire unit. Maintain at least 12" of clear air space around the entire unit, while in operation.

4. The ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 & 60 degrees F. This is usually the case in basement applications. The humidifier strains to extract humidity in that temperature range. Place the unit on a sturdy table or counter that can handle it's weight, plus a full tank of water. The air temperature at chest level is warmer than floor level.

5. The cooling coils on the unit are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use mild soap and warm water to clean the cooling coils, rinse and thoroughly dry. Wipe on a light coating of WD40.

Worse case scenario is that the compressor needs to be recharged with R14 refrigerant gas. This would require the help of a pro to perform. As it requires specialized equipment.

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

Can you Recommend a12 volt DC powered dehumidifier required for nights when the Flying bridge on my launch windows fog up when cold outside?


It might be easier to by a dc converter and use any dehumidifier you want. Depending how cold it is and below dewpoint it might not make much difference. http://www.my-air-conditioner.com

Dehumitifier wont condense water


This happened to me after the unit was turned on after being off all winter. I've had it just two years. After speaking with "support" I gather that it needs a new condenser, perhaps just because the freon may have escaped. It may be a sealed unit. Anyway, the math works out to simply discarding it and buying a new one. For me, this means not buying a DeLonghi. By the way, their service centers are strategically placed in remote areas to attract the fewest claims HD

Dehumidifier


Most dehumidifiers these days have a built in defrost control, which turns the compressor off when the coils frost up while the fan continues to blow to help melt the frost off, so if it is frosting you may need a new defrost control, but first check the following: If your model has an air filter, clean it, as restriction of air flow will contribute to icing. Try to move the unit to a warmer location. Usually the best way to do this is to get it above the floor as far as possible, as the air temp is warmer closer to the ceiling than it is at the floor. Make sure there is plenty of room for air to circulate. (don't push it against a wall)
