SOURCE: how do I clean the coils on my Hampton Bay Dehumidifier?

The problem is probably due to dirty or clogged coils. Cleaning the coils to a dehumidifier is similar to cleaning the coils on an air conditioner. It really depends on how dirty the coils are. If it is not too dirty you can use a shop vacuum with a brush attachment. If it is really dirty you will have to use a non acidic hvac coil cleaner or you can use a household cleaner like Simple Green that has been diluted 1:1 with water and placed in a spray bottle. Spray the solution on and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Make sure you unplug the unit before doing anything. If you use Simple Green make sure you spray it down with clean water. If you use an hvac type coil cleaner some do not require rinsing. Follow the directions on the product exactly. You might have to use a brush or even a putty knife if the coil is totally clogged. Be careful you do not damage the coil. Good luck!

My suggestion is to get an additional humidifier and run both. It sounds like it is at capacity. This was a cold winter and the additional heating put a large demand on the humidifiers.

I have a sunbeam 1387 warm mist humidifier. I need to know how to clean scale from the filter. It looks like it can be taken apart. Can it?


Actually, Carol, it shouldn't be necessary to take the unit apart. Mix a 50/50 solution of White Distilled Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank). Pour the solution in and allow it to sit overnight. Then empty the solution and fill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water. Turn the unit ON and allow it to run for 1 hour. Then empty any remaining Distilled Water. Doing all the aforementioned, should have not only cleaned the filter, but also the unit itself. If you use Bottled Distilled Water in the future, rater than tap water, the filter and the plumbing of the unit will stay clean longer and will require less maintenance.

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

Do these humidifiers have a filter that needs cleaning?


Yes, they do. The filter is located behind the louvers on the front. To remove it for cleaning, grasp the Filter Handle on the right side of the unit, on the same level as the louvers and pull it out. Clean the filter with a vacuum cleaner or luke warm water and a mild detergent. Thoroughly dry the filter before reinserting it.

If you have misplaced your Owner's Manual, I have included a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference. http://www.haieramerica.com/en/asset/product/4ba7175e54 Read over it and follow the suggested Routine Maintenance Guide.

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

The dehumidifier is running but no water is being eliminated from my damp basement


Florence, the air intake filter on the humidifier probably needs to be removed and cleaned. When they're dirty, the unit has to strain to take in the damp air. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit, before attempting to remove the filter. Once the filter has been cleaned and dried (if necessary), plug the dehumidifier back in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set the controls as you normally would. After about an hour or more, you should notice water collecting in the bucket.

Hope this helped you solve the problem.

No water is collecting on 2 year old lg humidifier


If when you turn your dehumidifier on the compressor runs then you should get moisture. Dehumidifiers work on the same principal as refrigeration. There is a bad control switch or the compressor start relay or capacitor is defective. If compressor runs and there is no effect then that is another problem. The filter should come out the front where the air goes in front and the filter should be washed by hand in warm degrease detergent water, dry and replace. If the disposable type filter I will help you contact LG.Thanks, Sea Breeze
