I would check if the compressor is starting... my first thought is that the compressor is either locked pu or not starting right because of a bad capacitor...

Plug it in and the GFCI trips.


before you scrap it , me id plug it into a regular circuit an try it and if it still trips breaker then yes dump it, IVE seen this happen plenty of times , really you shouldn't plug devices into a gfci that have motors in them , they will most times false trip and shut the device off , this is especially bad when its a freezer in a basement or something motor driven appliances and gfci's don't play well together .

I'm testing my daughter's dehumidifier that blows her fuses. In my house, it does not blow my circuit breakers but does trip my GFCI outlets. What do I need to do?


Hi,
If you are blowing fuses and GFCI's your compressor is either not starting at all, is starting hard, or is at least grounding out momentarily...
at any rate the compressor is failing, and that is not economically replaceable..

Dehumidifier tripping the breaker


be very careful - with the unit unplugged - try shorting the capacitor with an insulated screwdriver. if you get a healthy spark - the cap is probably ok. if you don't replace the cap. the cap is used in the motor's start winding.

Ground fault as soon as I plug it in.
