Question about Kenmore Dehumidifiers

1 Answer

The RF for the Remont Monitoring Station on the Kenmore Model Dehumidifier 251.99701801 interferes with a wireless security system just installed in my home. The Dehumidifier works great and I want to keep it in my lower level providing I can eliminate the RF. I do not require the Remote Monitoring Station, but want the remaining functions to continue to work properly. HOW CAN I DISCONNECT THE RF FROM THE DEHUMIDIFIER TO THE MONITORING STATION?

    I will give it a go in the morning. I attempted to get it apart earlier this evening but felt some resistance and did not want to break anything.

You open the dehumidifier, find the control board , locate n it the coil from the oscillating circuit(you can't miss it, it's the only one there) and cut it off (or unsolder it) from the bard - without it he RF module can't work.
Don't forget to remove the batteries from the remote station also.

    And, to prevent even the smallest chances of problems later, you should also disconnect the antenna.

  • Azrael SRL Oct 02, 2010

    Yes, it's visible, it's a small wire.

  • Azrael SRL Oct 04, 2010

    Sorry, none for your model, or at least i don't know that one exists. But the breakdown is very simple - all you need are 2 screwdrivers (one flat and one philips) and a blunt knife. Take out the screws from the back and the bottom and using the knife pry the panels open - it's a 15 minutes job.

  • Azrael SRL Oct 05, 2010

    The resistance you felt were the plastic clips - the blunt knife is for them. You will need to pry them over gently , if you break them the case will not seal perfectly later.

My Kenmore Elite Dehumidifier model 42-99701 runs but does not cool enough to collect water. Not a drop. found this page where I can order parts but I don't know what part I need to replace. Please help....

Dehumidifers are cheaply made and most likely it has formed a refrigerant leak. It would cost more to repair than to replace with a new one. They are basically a disposable appliance.

I have Kenmore dehumidifier 580.54701 70. Connected to external drain. Showing 01 code in humidity setting screen. Will not run. Approximately one year old.

Your model Kenmore Dehumidifier, I believe was was made my Haier, for Sears under the Kenmore name. In which case "01" indicates a circuit failure shutdown and needs to be repaired by an authorized Sears service technician. As it may still be in warranty.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Kenmore dehumidifier will not pull the humidity out of the air. Repairman said that the evaporator has a leak. Is there a seal material I can put into the system? How many PSI should the R22 be when...

You must be qualified and licensed to work on a sealed system with R22 And it's not the PSI that matters. If the evaporator is leaking, get a new dehumidifier.
