The 54701 Kenmore Dehumidifier runs and sounds normal, fan running, compressor on. However , it doesnt collect any water whether a hose is connected or just the bucket. No icing up or any weird noise...


Yes, if the compressor needs to be recharged, a service technician can do it.

In the meantime, try lowering the humidity extraction level to 35%. You may have the extraction level set to high.

Hope this helped you. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My humidifier stars and stops, start and stops. It runs for a minute then shuts off.


It sounds as if you may have the humidity extraction level set to high. Try lowering it you 35% and check the water collection bucket, to make sure it is installed properly

Hope this helped you.

I have a Kenmore 54701 dehumidfier, less than 2 year old. the power is on, a fan seems to be running, I no longer hear a compressor turn and, and no water is collected?


The sealed system of the Kenmore 54701 dehumidifier is warranted (Parts & Labor) by Sears for five (5) years. Since the fan in your unit runs but the compressor doesn't, I suggest that you return it to Sears and request (demand) a new replacement unit under their warranty. I say "demand" because Sears will undoubtedly tell you that the problem is due to some "other" component which is not covered, and will charge you mega-bucks to repair it. Been there - - done that.

FYI, read the (very low) customer reviews of these units on Sears website and you'll see you're not alone in your experience with Sears' inferior quality units.

Above all, do NOT pay to have it repaired. That money is better spent on the purchase of a far more reliable brand of dehumidifier - - (which will most likely cost less that what you paid for the Sears unit).

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.
