Question about Eva-Dry EDV300 Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Frigidare FDM70S1 The appliance is 3 yrs. old. It worked fine, but began to ice up. It's been in the same location for the entire time. The bottom half freezes up. The filter is clean. The fan works. Ambient is 66-f. This is a basement unit, good till 50-f. When unit is shut off i hear what sounds like metal contraction. Is it the pipe temp switch? Could it be low refrigerant?

In your case you have a refrigerant leak and the unit is low on charge...unfortunately till you find the leak and fix it, then recharge the unit, you will have more money into the old one then to buy a new one...

Frigidare fad704tdp evaporator not working, unit does run


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that the evaporator is not working on your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD704TDP, even though the rest of your appliance is still running. Please check the following:

    1)Please make sure there is enough clearance around your dehumidifier. There needs to be a minimum of 12 inches all around your appliance for it to operate correctly.

    2)Make sure that the air movement through your dehumidifier is not blocked. Clean the grill with the brush attachment of your vacuum. Also, clean the filter. You will do this by removing the bucket, then pulling the filter downwards. Wash the filter with clean water, and then dry. Re-install the filter, and replace the bucket.

    3)Your appliance is designed to operate between 41 degrees F (5 degrees C), and 96 degrees F (35 degrees C). Your dehumidifier will not work properly if the temperature is out of this temperature range, or the performance of your appliance will fall greatly.

    4)The "Compressor" circuit has an automatic 3 minute time
    delayed start if the unit is turned off and on quickly. This prevents overheating of the compressor and possible circuit breaker tripping. Make sure the tank is fitted correctly otherwise your appliance will not turn on.

    I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

    -Best Regards-

A large block of ice formed over the entire front where the vent is. Basement temp was apprx 64 degrees F, but this model is supposed to operate at lower temps. Discovered after it was running continuously...


35 is way low; why not 50%?

At the cooler temp you may need to also run a small fan or space heater blowing on it.

It is working, but the setting is too low and the temp in the room is too low

Goldstar dehumidifier model DH305Y6 is there an outlet on this model for a hose so can drain into sump pump?


I have a Goldstar dehumidifier, Model DH305Y6. I bought it about 5 years ago at a local Walmart. During the summer I run it in the basement, here in south-central Pa. When it was brand new it worked very well, for about 2 yrs. Then it began turning on & off very irregularly. At first I thought it was the sensor on the front of the coils. So I moved it to the lower left side of the coils, and had the same results. The other day the water heater in the basement developed a leak. About 300 gals. of water covered the floor. After sumping/wet-vac'ing down to a wet carpet, I pulled out the dehumidifier and plugged it in,(the filter was cleaned before put away last summer). It began its on/off cycling again. It runs for about 2-3 mins., then shuts off for about 5-10 mins. So, I took the On/Off switch apart and read the resistance. It read 48k, for the 50k switch. I turned the switch all the way left to all the way right and it went from 48k, down to about 8k. The two wires to the switch were attached to the #2 and #3 poles,(only 3 poles). I did some testing, then removed the wires and re-soldered them to the #1 and #3 poles. I put everything back together, and now it works. It runs constantly, but it works/runs just fine. I need to get the basement dry, so I will let it run until the job is done. In the Spring I will get a new 50k potentiometer,(on/off switch), and see if that works. I will post results if I remember to.

Approached unit with air of trained appliance repair professional. Found Chinese-made product of vastly inferior quality, began series of tests, moving on to systematic disassembly finally sledgehammering the unit thence noting it failed to improve performance. resolved to not buy junk made in China or elsewhere. I've been "fix-ya'd" all right! Over and out.
