My dehumidifier don't collect any water the tank is always dry but it seems to be working real well and just stopped collecting water can you answer my problem thanks


There are 5 basic, yet solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

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.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

I hope this helps you troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Kenmore dehumidifier 54701 runs but very little water accumulates in tank. It is 3 years old. It used to take out at least a tank of water every day.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If you have a Manually
Controlled unit (no LED screen) turn the humidity extraction knob to Maximum.

Runing fine but does not take in water in tank

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.

I bought the eva dry e-333 on 4/30/11. I placed it near my toilet tank in the bathroom. Everything was working fine until two or three days ago. I noticed that the tank had water condensation and the eva...


You are trying to fix the symptoms rather than the problem. The problem is the water going into the tank is colder than the air in the bathroom, which cause condinsation on the tank. If you can, take the chill out of the water. By exposing the pipes, which may cause the pipes to sweat. Or cool the room air. Is the bathroom vented so that the warm moist air is carried outside? There are liners that go in the tank that work well. If you use a liner make sure you will still have enough water to flush with, as they will take up some of the water volume.

My dehumidifier suddenly does not remove any water from the air. It worked perfectly last summer and just sat in the basement unplugged over the winter. I plugged it in a few days ago and it has been...


It may simply be a case that the air intake filter needs cleaning, as do the condenser coils. This is recommended maintenance, prior to using the dehumidifier for the first time each season. Also, the air temperature at floor level, may be to cool for it operate properly. Particularly, if it's below 60 degrees. the unit up off the floor and placing it on something sturdy, will help solve that issue.

After cleaning the unit, as stated above, try placing it upstairs where the temperature will be warmer and allow it to run at it's lowest humidity extraction level. That's usually 35%. If it functions properly upstairs, then you will know that it's an air temperature issue in the basement.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.
