Hello , I have goldstar dehumidifier model #DH40 . It's freezing from back grill? Can you please give me some solution to it? Thanks for you're help


It sounds like not enough air flow. clean the filter. I would suggest unplugging it and let it set for a day to dry out then replace filter and clean the air path including coils.

I noticed today our Goldstar dehumidifier was running, but the back was all frosted up. What does that mean?


That's an indication, that the filter needs to be removed and cleaned.
Turn the unit OFF & unplug it before removing the filter. You can vacuum the filter or if it's really dirty, wash it in warm water and dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly and allow to completely dry, before reinstalling. Never operate the unit without the filter installed.

If the coils continue to frost, but not defrost, they also should be cleaned.

Back and coils freezing up


There are 4 basic, but solvable reason for what you described. Before undertaking any of them, Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Allow the unit to thaw completely.

1. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

2. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

3. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

4. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder
level
in basement applications . Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the defrost sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

Hope this helps you to trouble shoot and solve the problem.

I havea goldstar dehumidfierthe problem I clean the filter and now I will also clean the coil it turns on for a short time then shuts off can you help me????


snickers, you may have the humidity extraction level set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35% or if you don't have an LED readout, turn it to Maximum. Be sure that you have 12" to 18" clear air space around the entire unit.

With what you have already completed as far cleaning is concerned (Filter & Coils), the above should solve your problem.

Dehumidifier runs loud


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.
