How do i fix it so that it will collect water?


1st ck that your humidistat is set correcly and unit cycles the compressor on/off correctly ,Not just the cirulation fan running all the time , next ck your filters , clogged up filters wont allow air to pull thru unit , also are you sure room has enough moisture in it to pull water from, Most units wont draw a percievable amount of water out of air thats got less than 52%rh , as most homes target a 70%rH as normal

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.

My Kenmore dehumidifier has stopped drawing water from the air to the collection receptical. Fan still runs at high and low speeds.


A couple of things may be happening: The humidity extraction level may be set to high and it can't extract any humidity at that level. Reset/Lower it to 35%. The fans on most dehumidifiers run almost constantly (designed that way) so that it keeps moving the air around. If the sensor picks up a higher humidity level than what it's set to maintain, the compressor will turn ON. This is particularly true, if you operate the unit in continual mode, rather than a timed mode. Also, a dirty or clogged air intake filter, hinders the units ability to remove humidity/moisture.

In addition, operating the unit is ambient air temperature of between 40 & 60 degrees F, causes the unit to struggle to dehumidify the air and the fan to run continuously. Obstructing the air flow around the unit, will also cause it to not function as it should. Maintain a minimum of 12" of free air space around all 4 sides of the unit.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know.

The unit turns out and runs fine. The fan blows. But the moisture is not being removed. I did insert a hose last fall and it worked fine then. Now it doesn't remove moisture with using the hose or...


You may have the humidity level set to high. If it's above 60%, that's what it's going to maintain, not remove. Set the humidity level on the lowest setting and try again. Whether you're using the hose or not, I don't suspect it's playing a role in it. Also, clean and reinstall the air intake filter.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Won't draw moisture


Hi,

First, make sure the humidistat isn't set too high by adjusting it to the lowest humidity setting and running it again. Next, test the dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower running. If you don't see water collecting in the unit after several minutes, turn the unit off and clean all dehumidifier filters and coils. If, after adjusting the settings and cleaning the unit, you still don't see water collecting, you may have a refrigeration issue. This situation will have to be addressed by a qualified technician.

Good luck.

My dehumidifier ices up. It will not remove moisture when it ices up. What can I do and is it under warranty?


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.

Take care.

What could be wrong with my dehumidifier it runs but doesn't draw moisture anymore


does the air feel humid? could be the humidity level dropped and there isn't any moisture in the air. the air passing over the evaporator coil needs to be laden with moisture for the dehumidifier to work.

The dihumidifidier is not drawing water. It is


In order for the Dehumidifier to remove moisture, the coil temperature has to be below the dewpoint temperature. If you check with the weather station and find out what the dewpoint is in your area, then measure the coil temperature or cold line coming out of the coil,it has to be below the dewpoint to get moisture, you can also look at the coil and see if it's wet which will also tell you if the coil is below the dewpoint.
