Frigidaire dehumidifier


Good Afteroon Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your inquiry!

Typically there are one or two reasons why your dehumidifier is not collecting water. Either the setting might be set too high or not enough moisture in the room. I suggest changing the set point to a lower setting. Ashumiditydrops in the room the amount of water will decrease and very little water may be generated even when in continuous mode. If these basictroubleshootingtips prove ineffective, then your dehumidifier may possibly have system issues. Is your dehumidifier still in warranty? If so, you might want to reach out directly to the manufacturer to determine the coverage on your dehumidifier and the procedures to any potential remedy in that regard. Best!

Clean frigidaire dehumidifier cooling coil


Hello Friend, thank you for your post!

I see that you would like to know how to clean the coils on your Frigidaire dehumidifier and that it is no longer collecting water. The best way to clean the coils is by using a brush attachment from your vacuum. Typically there are one or two reasons why your dehumidifier is not collecting water. Either the setting might be set too high or not enough moisture in the room. I suggest changing the set point to a lower setting. As humidity drops in the room the amount of water will decrease and very little water may be generated even when in continuous mode. If these basic troubleshooting tips prove ineffective, then your dehumidifier may possibly have system issues. Is your dehumidifier still in warranty? If so, you might want to reach out directly to the manufacturer to determine the coverage on your dehumidifier and the procedures to any potential remedy in that regard. Best - Z

It is not producing water, it runs but no water is collecting in pan.


Hello,

First, make sure the humidistat isn't set too high by adjusting it to the lowest humidity setting and running it again.

Next, test the dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower running. If you don't see water collecting in the unit after several minutes, turn the unit off and clean all dehumidifier filters and coils. If, after adjusting the settings and cleaning the unit, you still don't see water collecting, you may have a refrigeration issue.

This situation will have to be addressed by a qualified technician.


Take care.

What should I set it at


If there is actual water in the basement, any setting will probably cause the unit to run. I would suggest setting it around 60%, and turn it up as you feel necessary. Hope this helps

Dehumidifier runs however there is no water in bucket. Thx


Maybe there is no water in the air. Is your machine set to ON or is it set to some % setting? If set to ON - move the setting to relative humidity setting. You want 50% or more for comfort, usually not more than 75% in my experience.

It is winter where I am located - not much water in the air where I am - it may be the same where you are.

Thanks for your question at FixYa.com
