Question about Goldstar DH504EL Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Dehumidifier runs loud

When I turn my system on it starts fine then within 45 sec it starts running in a really high gear and very noisy. It also freezes the coils after a period of time and will not collect water anymore. Is there anything I can do to fix these problems?

What is the temperature in the space where you are operating thsi dehumidifier? When you first start a refrigerating system some refrigerant may have condensed into the compressor oil. When the compressor starts the pressure in it drops rapidly. The oil boils and some passes through the compressor valves. After a few minutes of operation this condition normally corrects itself.

Haier 45-pint dehumidifier unit cannot be turned on. It has been running fine last few days.


The first thing that comes to mind, is have you emptied the water collection bucket recently? If so, be sure that the bucket was properly reinstalled and is making contact with the bucket safety removal switch.

If you haven't emptied the bucket in the past few days, it may simply be full and will not start until it's emptied.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My Haier dehumidifier is really noisy. If we turn it off and restart it, it will run quietly for maybe 4 minutes and then start getting really noisy again. Any ideas what is causing it and what I can do...


Hi,

With the unit unplugged, open the cover and check the alignment of the fan. If the fan is stuck or rubbing against the fan cowling, adjust the fan motor's mounting hardware so that the fan turns freely.

Take care.

Dehumidifier trips ground fault outlet and no water in bucket


Hi,
The compressor is trying to start and pulling high amps which trips the GFI...
You are better off replacing rather then repairing that unit.

Haier hd656e, my dehumidifier runs about 30 sec and turns off,


Hi,
This sounds like a main circuit board problem and is very common with many dehumidifiers... They can be replaced on some units. You can do a search online for the part easily...to see if it is available.

Really thick ice on back of dehumidifier


It is now frozen because the humidistat, which controls the on/off cycle, is starting to age and forgetting to turn off the dehumidifier. Try removing the humidistat and, using compressed air, blow it out thoroughly of any dust. Then spray the rotary control area, including electrical parts, with WD-40. Then, blow dry again with the compressor and try again.
