I hear the fan on, but it sounds as if it isn't drawing water out of the air.

No water collected


check to see if the fan is blowing across the condenser. there should be warm air blowing out the back. if there isn't, the fan may need to be replaced so the heat exchanger can cool down. may be running too hot. also check the condenser in the front to see if the air flow is blocked with dust. if so, change the filter if it has one. if there is cool air blowing, the compressor may not be turning on.

Hi- I have a Kenmore dehumdifier that has stopped filling up with water. It sounds like it is working but no water is in the tank. Any ideas?


A dehumidifier works with heat, so you should see if it is getting warm or not. Although the fan is working (sound you hear) it might not be working other than the fan. If you have a clamp on amp meter you could see how many amps it is drawing which is usually quite high.

Runs but doesn't work (no water accumulates)


It sounds like what you hear working is the fan. The unit also has a compressor; if the compressor is bad or the freon is gone, the fan will run but the coils wont cool to remove moisture from the air.

Dehumidifier isn't not removing humidity. Fan and lights are working, but the water container remains empty. It is not pulling water from air. I think that the heating element may not be working.

Compressor sounds as if its on, the fan is on, but water is not extrated from the air


If the room air is less than the set air then there is no water in the bucket because there is almost no humidity in the air. If it is winter, there is likely not enough humidity in the air to have water collect in the bucket. A dehumidifier will only pick up humidity out of warm air. If you are running a dehumidifier in your basement in the winter, the room may be damp, but too cold for the dehumidifier to pull out the humidity. Try running the unit in the bathroom after having a hot shower without the bathroom fan on. If working correctly the unit should draw water.

In addition, check to see if the air filter is dirty and/or blocked. Also, the room temperature might be too low, (below 15.5 C/ 60F) and finally, check to make sure that there is no obstruction to the unit, that might be causing poor airflow circulation.

I hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Hi I have a Danby DDR3008EE dehumifier that is putting water on floor There is ice inside where the filter is. What should we do besides turn off and let melt?


Hi,

The coils you see on the back of your dehumidifier are the evaporator. When the unit runs, the coils get very cold. As the fan draws the room air over the coils, the humidity in the air condenses out of the air onto the cold coils. But, if the temperature of the air the fan draws over the coils is too cool, the humidity that condenses out of the air freezes on the coils. To remedy this problem, you can try any of these: Warm up the room the dehumidifier is in. Put the dehumidifier on a sturdy table (the room air is coolest near the ground). Turn the unit off until the room warms up.

Good luck.

Dehumidifier runs but doesn't produce water


Your dehumidifier has a circulating fan that draws the room air over the coils. If there's no air movement out the front or back of the unit, the fan motor may be burned out or stuck, or the fan blade may be broken. If so, you need to replace the fan motor or the fan blade.

Running but not collecting water...


Dehumidifiers have only a few components, and operate on the same principle as a refrigerator, freezer, or air-conditioner.
Components Residential dehumidifiers have a cooling system made up of these primary components:

  • The compressor is the quiet motor (engine) of the cooling system. It's the black, football-size component at the bottom of your dehumidifier. The compressor runs as long as the dehumidifier humidistat (the humidity-sensor) calls for a reduction in the humidity.

  • The condenser is a series of finned tubes, similar to a radiator. It's usually near the circulating fan.

  • The evaporator is located near the back of the dehumidifier, right above the water-collection container. It also resembles a radiator or a coiled-up set of tubes. When the dehumidifier's humidistat senses increased humidity, it cycles on, which starts the compressor and circulating fan.

  • The circulating fan circulates the air over the evaporator and condenser coils.

Principle When the unit runs, the circulating fan and compressor also run. The fan continually draws room air over the evaporator coils, which are cold, and then over the condenser coils, which are warm. Because the evaporator coils are cold, the moisture in the room collects on them--just as the outside of a glass of icy liquid "sweats" on a warm, humid day. When the moisture on the coils increases, it drips off of the coils into the collection container.

The air then flows over the warm condenser coils and out into the room. This process removes water from the air and, because of the heat from the fan motor and compressor motor, the exiting air is somewhat warmer, as well as dryer.

Dehumidifiers and how they work
Heat pump dehumidifiers

Dehumidifiers use a heat pump (similar to an air conditioner's heat pump) or chemical adsorbents to remove moisture from the air without cooling the air.

A heat pump dehumidifier uses a fan to draw indoor air over a heat exchange coil. The coil is almost freezing. The water in the air condenses on the coil and is drained. A second heat exchange coil reheats the air, which the dehumidifier exhausts into the room.

A heat pump dehumidifier dumps heat lost from the compressor and fan motors into the air. It returns to the indoor air the heat generated by the dehumidifier turning water vapour to liquid. I got this off the internet
