Will turn on but no dehumidifying so there is no water in the bucket.


well 67%rh is considered low (70%rh is normal) units will produce much less water when tasked to operate in low moisture air , this is why all the new units have air temp ratings of 60Deg or less. but still the unit should try to go thru all the motions ,that you can easy verify , just by u watching /listening closely
set unit to work normally , listen 4 the fans inside to come on and a few moments later the compressor will come on if everything is working well , try adjusting the humidistat up to a value of say 80% listen 4 one fan and compressor to stop , this is all normal reset desired setting on humidistat
if unit fails any one of these simple tests it has an internal fault inside it and requires service

Ihava a dehumidifier MOdel#106955250. The coils are icing up, can you help me?


as with any freeze up of any unit (any mfg) there are a few things to look at first before consulting a profesional ,
1st ck your filter most units have a filter these are the most forgoten things when it comes to reg cleaning , remove it and run under tap shake excess water off and replace in unit
2nd is unit warm enoght to work air temp has to excede 68 degrees for these to work
3rd how old is unit if unit is over three years and has been largely neglected for cleaning and maint issues then overheating can cause gas charge to leak out and cause freeze ups , replacement is only option on this reason
4th setting: is unit large enoght to remove water from area if its undersize it runs too hard and never cycles off/on this causes freeze ups , purchase a small humidmeter to measure the area % rh 70%rh is considered normal for a home

My Kenmore dehumidifier is set for 65 the display constantly reads 90 and is always running and collecting water the unit never turns off and the display number always stays at 90. What is wrong?


wow it seems you really have a lot of moisture , 1st i suggest you find and seal location of water entry second you might have to consider getting a second unit or a larger unit to work as your primary and save smaller unit for use as a back up
they are rated in Pints per hour the bigger the number the more water they pull out of air sounds as if your gonna need a 60 PPH unit or larger

Btw : 70%rh is considered the "normal" of the avg home
yours at 90 % rh is unhealthy for humans and will promote respatory mold growth and all its complications unit setting of 65% is telling me that unit is too small to handle amount of water you have

Have a DDR583R with E-1 flashing blue, did not D-Humidify. Took unit to repair shop, 4 days later they called an said unit working fine, no repairs needed, cost 20.00. Came home, plugged unit in, works but...


If you're operating in area that where the ambient air temperature is between 40 & 60 degrees F. Like in a basement, where the air temp at floor level is cooler than at shoulder level, this could cause that reading. As dehumidifiers, unless they are Low temp models, will respond that way. Raising the unit up of the floor on to a sturdy table, counter top etc, that can handle the weight of the unit, plus a full bucket of water, will generally solve that problem.

If the unit, in all other facets is working as it should, do worry about it. If a sensor had gone bad and wasn't replaced, the unit wouldn't function at all. Also, keep in mind, that the repair shop's environment was different than yours.

I have a GE AHH50LMG1 dehumidifier. It is less than 2 years old. When I turn it on, it displays 20% RH. The fan runs but the compressor does not kick in. I assume that is because it thinks the humidity...


Hi,
It could be just the sensor, but not likely... many times it is the circuit board that goes bad, making the repair almost prohibitive.. as the circuit board, if you can find one, is often half or more the cost of a new unit...
But you are correct... if the unit thinks the humidity is 20% then it will not bring on the compressor...that is what is happening...

It runs, the fan works in Hi and Lo, the compressor seems to work, it seems to blow warm air if the compressor is running and cold air when it is not. The mode switch does something but I am not sure...


Take it to a metal scrap yard and turn it in the copper and buy a new one. Buy a different brand.
Sorry to be so blunt but dehumidifiers are very cheap and disposable not many people work on them. If this help please rate me and do a testimonial.

Humidifier Fan Doesn't Stop


RH at 70 % seems to me a little excessive you really should be working somewhere around 50 to 56% the fan has to move Air through the system.
I would like to know your room Air temp what is the Air temp comming off the system. what are your parameters.

No power


Factory Default Setting:
When the unit is first connected to a power supply, the
electronic circuit board will automatically default to the
following factory settings;
Mode: Dehumidifier
Humidity Set Air Value:60% RH
Fan Speed: = Low
NOTE: In the event of a power failure or the unit is
switched ‘Off’, the most recent settings are retained and
restored once the power is switched “On”/resumed.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Depending on the ambient humidity
conditions, when power is restored or switched ‘On’ the
dehumidifier may not start automatically under the factory
or custom (see page 7) default setting. This is an indication
that the ambient RH% level of the surrounding environment
is lower than the current default setting and it
may be necessary to select a lower set RH% value.
