Question about Kenmore Heating & Cooling

Open Question

I have a Kenmore dehumidifier (model 580.54351800). It runs for a few minutes then shuts off. The only way to turn it back on is to remove and re-insert the water bucket. then it runs for a few more minutes and shuts off again

SOURCE: runs for a couple of minutes and then stops

Try cleaning out the air filter using cold water. I did not even know the unit had one until I had the same problem. Pull out the bucket. The filter is located where the front top edge of the bucket would be located if it were in the instrument. Remove it by pulling straight down. It may be taped to the instrument for shipping purposes. According to the manual, this should be done every month. I have had the machine since Katrina and this is the first time I have had a problem. Hope this helps.

My dehumidifier kenmore model 580.52650 is working fine but turn off and turn back on every three minutes it is this dangerous, any solutions ? THANKS.


I think the problem may be caused by the humidity extraction level you have the unit set on. (i.e. It's set to high). Lower the humidity extraction level to 35%. This will allow the unit to run longer and extract more humidity, before it either shuts off, because the humidity level has been reached or the bucket is full and needs to be emptied.

Don't forget, the air intake filter should be cleaned regularly.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

Dehumidifier runs for approx. 15 min works fine then shuts off and doesn't come back on.


run it without the filter with a 1 part vinegar 4 parts water. then try it with a clean or new filter. You may need to run it a few (5-6) times before it stops shutting off by its self.

Dehumidifier not collecting moisture


Normal 0 When you push the power button, the blower fan comes on. In a few minutes you should hear a second "click"--that is your compressor starting. Do you hear that second click?

Constant on-off cycle


If the unit is freezing up I suggest replacing the sensor assembly. Just replaced mine because the thermistor that is on the suction line went bad and would not send the reversing valve into defrost.
