The "Zener Diode ZD2" solution works. To check if the diode is shorted, use a multimeter to measure its resistance. If the diode's resistance is only a few ohms (in both directions), it's shorted. The ZD2 diode is clearly labeled and is located in the upper left-hand corner of the circuit board. Further evidence of a short may be a scorch mark on the back of the circuit board (just behind the ZD2 diode). To replace, purchase a 5.1V diode from Radio Shack. They come in a pack of two for about $1.40. Use a solder iron to melt out the old one and then simply solder in the new one. Make sure you get the orientation of the new diode correct. The black band on the diode should be toward the top of the circuit board. If your fix worked, the red "tank full" light should blink when you give the dehumidifier power. Remember, in order for the dehumidifier to actually kick on, the tank sensor switch must be depressed. You can use a piece of tape to temporarily hold it down (or your finger for that matter) while your troubleshoot. Hope this helps.

    I replaced the zener and now I at least have LEDs coming on. Problem now is the fan and compressor don't run. Any thoughts?

Check Zener Diode ZD2 on the board to see if it's shorted.
If it's shorted replace it.

I can confirm that replacing ZD2 worked. Didn't even know that the Shack still sold individual electronic components like diodes in 2014! btw, they are now $1.99 for a 2 pack, lol! Thanks guys, sure beats having to replace the whole appliance

Hi,

The only solution to fix this is to get it repaired.
the only thing you can check is that the bucket switch is not hung up, or in fact a wire has not come off it. If you have power going to it, the next step would to be is to see if the on/off switch is working.

Goodluck..

First the dehumidifier Gold AD35USS1 stopped collecting water. Cleaned the filter. Tried it again and it stilled did not collect water. Plugged it in and was Off but made a humming sound. Then when turned...


Brisy, you have an electrical problem within the unit, which may require the help of Whirlpool Technical Service to solve. That is, unless you have a multimeter and want to dismantle the unit to find the electrical problem. Could simply be a shorted wire or something more serious, which could require replacement parts. Also, consider the age of the unit and would it be cost effective to repair it, as opposed to replacing it. Quite honestly, repairs, sometimes can cost almost as much as a new unit.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

After about 5 minutes the unit stops working. No sound or even a fan noise. I just cleaned the filter to see if that helps, but it didn't.


Is the fan running and stopping before the unit completely quits?
If the fan quits the compressor won't run very long.
I would start with the fan motor or capacitor.
Shut the power off to the unit, spin the blower wheel to see if it spins freely. If it doesn't spin freely, (there appears to be a little drag when you spin it),the bearings are bad, if it does spin freely, then try moving the motor shaft from side to side if there’s any play in the shaft side to side then the bearings are worn and motor needs replaced. Then, check the capacitor, if it’s bulging even slightly, the capacitor is bad and needs replaced. Most of the time people replace the capacitor if motor seems ok. If capacitor is ok, turn power on to see if the motor is getting the proper voltage, if it is and not trying to run, then the windings are probably open, the motor's bad and needs replaced.

My Danby DDR586R dehumidifier shouts hot air, it was shooting cool air before, what can the problem be?


Here is Danby's official response to a similar question on their FAQ page for Dehumidifiers:
https://www.danby.com/faqs.php?cat=12

Q) When the dehumidifier is operating, is it normal for the expelled air to be quite warm? We find that the dehumidifier is warming up the room noticeably (a finished basement).

A) The warm air that is being expelled from your dehumidifier is normal. When the unit is dehumidifying the compressor is working which causes the compressor to become quite hot. In order to avoid having the compressor overheat, air is drawn by the compressor at a rapid rate and the heat is then transferred to the air which must be expelled from the unit. The warm air will stop shortly after the unit has reached the desired humidity. This warm air should not change your room temperature by more than a degree or two.

Will not turn on


Boys and girls, I hate to tell you this -- but those units are DEAD. I had the same problems as being discussed here (not turning on, electronic chirp, bucket full signals), but with one other important feature -- the unit became so hot that I couldn't touch the top. At first it sounded and smelled like the fan was jammed, and later it sounded like the compressor wasn't working.

Anyway, after two weeks of dealing with LG (1-800-243-0000, and be prepared to call back several times as they have a phone problem), they have finally decided to refund me the money on my unit. Give them a call and speak to them. Also, as my unit was intermittently working, I would recommend that you unplug your malfunctioning unit if you are having these problems. A dead dehumidifier is one thing, a house fire is quite another thing.

Dehumidifier stopped working,then started up,but making strange buzzing sound and does not collect any water


Try cleaning the coil and filter. They may have collected alot of dust and this could have caused the issue. If it is still doing it after you clean it the issue may be thecompressor. If the compressor is bad it may be cheaper to pick up a new unit. I recommend picking up one that has an energy star rating. They are usually made of higher quality materials and will save you some money on your electric bills. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.
