I have a Kenmore Dehumidifier Model 580.53701 that causes the circuit breaker to activate when it is connected. It is probable 8 years old. Can it be repaired for a reasonable price or should I purchase another Dehumidifier? If I should purchase another what do you recommend?

Check your electrical panel first. Is this dehumidifier on a dedicated circuit?

I have a Kenmore Elite Dehumidifier. Yesterday it just stopped working. When I plug it in, the panel does not light up at all, nothing, no power! Warranty ran out last month. It is 13 months old. Thanks....


Debi, before we assume there is something drastically wrong with the unit itself. Let's look at some other things that may be causing the problem.

1. Is the outlet that unit is plugged into still have power? Has a circuit breaker in you home's
Circuit Breaker Panel been tripped? If so, unplug the unit, before resetting the circuit breaker.

2. Was the water collection bucket recently removed to empty it? If so, was it reinstalled
properly? In other words, was it installed "squarely" into the holder and making contact with
the bucket safety removal switch, on the rear wall of the bucket holder? If not, this would cause
the unit not to activate.

3. Does your model have a float valve in the top of the bucket? If so, the float may be stuck in the
UP position. Which indicates to the unit, that bucket is full. If you have a float valve, jiggle the
arm of float to make sure it moves freely. And reinstall the bucket properly.

I hope all of the above helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have Kenmore dehumidifier 580.54701 70. Connected to external drain. Showing 01 code in humidity setting screen. Will not run. Approximately one year old.


Your model Kenmore Dehumidifier, I believe was was made my Haier, for Sears under the Kenmore name. In which case "01" indicates a circuit failure shutdown and needs to be repaired by an authorized Sears service technician. As it may still be in warranty.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My Haier HD601 dehumidifier keeps popping breaker


Hi,
If you are blowing the breaker then you are pulling way to much current on the startup or you have a short in the unit...
either way you probably will be much better off by replacing the unit with a new one... they do not cost enough that it is worth sinking hundreds of dollars into fixing an old one...

1 year old Kenmore dryer tumbles but doesn't heat.


If it is 1 year old, call Kenmore , they will probably fix it as a courtesy call.

If not quote that the machine is not fit for purpose as it should not have gone wrong so quick

Lamp(60watt bulb) dims slightly when dehumidifier starts up. The dehumidifier outlet is downstream of the lamp outlet. This dehum draws 5 amps at steady run, not sure what it's pulling at startup. Wiring...


The dimming is probably normal, especially if the motor is a split winding type that has a start and a run winding. Ususlly, it will use a capacitor also. You can view the wiring diagram to see if this is the case.

Help me fix my dehumidifier


What else is on the same circuit? Have you added any other appliances on that same circuit that were not on it before?

If no>>>you probably have a short in the unit, and it is grounding out>>>tripping the breaker before it starts a fire.

Also, check the breaker, they can go bad.

Trips the circuit breaker on start up


I would try to find an outlet on another circuit to see if maybe the problem is definately your dehumidifier, if it trips again then you know it is...If not then call an electrician..
