Question about Kenmore 54701 Dehumidifier
Obviously the reversing valve is not being energized. I did a continuity test on the solenoid and it is not open. This leaves me with the thermistor or ultimately the control board. I did an ohm reading on the thermistor but I don't know what resistance I should be getting at room temp and some where around 32 degrees.Any one that might have these readings sure would appreciate...thanks
I have the same problem. Have replaced all the other components. I am trying to get a new solenoid from Sears. They are out and are trying to figure out where they can get them. In the mean time take as much of it apart as you can. Clean mating surfaces with very fine emory cloth. Spray metal surfaces with WD40. Reassemble and put a small piece of duct tape on top of solenoid to keep water and condensate out. Unplug and replug solenoid in on pc board. I am just waiting now to see if this works.
