Edison 25 dehumidifier coils frosting

The coils on my Edison dehumidifier are frosting up. The temperature in the room is not an issue and there is plenty of air flow to the unit. What could be causing this problem?

thanks

    I am having this same problem with my Edison dehumidifier. It is frosting over. This unit has been running for several years with no problems. There seems to be no dirt collected on the coils. Do you have a solution?

Why does Frigidaire dehumidifier LAD704DUL has ice on the coils?


Hello Friend, thank you for your question!

I see that you have frost accumulating on the coils of your Frigidaire dehumidifier, LAD704DUL. Typically frost appears on coils either because your dehumidifier has been turned on recently or the room temperature is too low. Sometimes this is normal due to refrigerant rushing through the coils and usually it disappears within 60 minutes. However, if your dehumidifier is not removing moisture, then at this point your dehumidifier may possibly been experiencing a sealed system issue. Is your appliance still in warranty? If so, you might want to reach out directly to the manufacturer to determine the coverage on your dehumidifier and the procedures to any potential remedy in that regard. Hope this helps! - Z

My dehumidifier doesnt take any moisture out of the room let it run for 24 hours and buckets empty can you help


Not sure if you have set the level of operation correctly. It may be set to low.
In addition, have you noticed any frost or icing on the coils of the unit? If so, it's frozen up and you will have to allow it to thaw out completely, before restarting it. Also, the air temperature where you have the humidifier can affect it's operation. Especially, if the temperature is below 41 degrees. In addition, if the filter on the back of the unit is dirty, that will definitely affect the proper operation of the unit.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, I have included a link to it. You can download and print it for future reference, if you so desire.

The dehumidifier wont work even the lights was on and it show Lo all the times and we do not know why it happen and how can we get it fixed as we live in Oshawa, Ontario?


I found this on the web

Q - Will my dehumidifier work in a cold room ?

A - A dehumidifier will not operate satisfactory in a room that is below 65 degrees F. At this temperature it will become necessary to operate the dehumidifying coil below freezing temperatures in order to reduce the relative humidity to a reasonable valve. Frost on coils usually will appear.


I would imaging that the humidity is already lower than the dehumidifier could get it down to. that's why it reads "Lo" on the display.

Need a repair shop in the baltimore area to look at my dehumidifier runs but wont pull water


It's cold outside. If the temperature is too low, the cold coils will just frost up and you won't get much water 'pulled'.
Check to see if the cold coils actually are getting cold when the unit is running and the control is set to cause the compressor to work-not just the fan.
If the coils are cold and full of frost or ice, the room is too cold for the dehumidifier to work. You'll have to raise the temperature of the room or wait for warmer weather.
If the coils never get cold, the compressor might be bad or the unit might have lost its freon.
I wonder, though, if it's just too cool and dry right now for a dehumidifier to be pulling more moisture out of the air.
Hope this helps!

I have a dehumidifier (Emerson I believe - sorry don't have the model # right now) in a very cool basement (55-60 degeres). When I turn it on the coil quickly frosts up as expected and a while later the...


Dehumdifiers work by cooling a coil below the dew point temperature of the ambient air. When this happens frost or water will form on the coil. Most room dehumidifiers work with the room temperature above 65 deg F. It works well when the temperature of the room is 65 deg F or higher. But when the temp is below 65, it won't work because the coil does not reach the dew point.

There are cold temperature dehumidifiers that are designed to work in colder environments such as basements. They can work in a environment as cold as 40 deg F. Check your owners manual to see what type of humidifier you have to see what is the minimum operating temperature for you unit. Hope this helps you.

Most dehumidifiers have a "Frost Guard" mounted on the condensor coil. If frost accumulates on the condensor coil the frost guard turns the compressor off until the frost melts, then comes back on again. For the dehumidifier to work properly, the surrounding (ambient), temperature must be higher than 65 degress. This temperature allows the moisture in the air to condense on the coils and drip into the reservoir without freezing up on the condensor coil. Also, if the humidity is too low, (below 45%), the same condition will occur. So it will help to keep the parameters in mind when you have this issue.

Thank you for your allowing me to advise you on this issue.

The following statement is a parameter for all dehumidifiers and some of the control issues may vary, but the theory is the same.

Most dehumidifiers have a "Frost Guard" mounted on the condensor coil. If frost accumulates on the condensor coil the frost guard turns the compressor off until the frost melts, then comes back on again. For the dehumidifier to work properly, the surrounding (ambient), temperature must be higher than 65 degress. This temperature allows the moisture in the air to condense on the coils and drip into the reservoir without freezing up on the condensor coil. Also, if the humidity is too low, (below 45%), the same condition will occur. So it will help to keep the parameters in mind when you have this issue.
If your model does not employ a "Frost-Guard" the condition you describe will avail itself when the above parameters are not met.
Simply unplug, or turn off the unit, until the above parameters are met or exceeded.
