If the humidity in the air is low, then it will shut off. When you reset the unit it will run until it senses that the humility is at an acceptable lever based on the settings. It is also possible that there is a malfunction. If it is humid in the room, and it will not run then it could be the humidity sensor, or control unit.

If the unit is malfunctioning, and it is no longer under warranty, then it is not worth it to fix it. If it is under warranty then the manufacturer will repair it.

Ihave a comfort aire BHD-301. when i turn it on the filter lite keeps blinking and the filter is clean. is there another filter besides the one on the side?


No, there's only one filter. So be sure that you reinstalled the filter properly, so that it is making contact with the filter switch. If that checks out OK, turn the unit OFF & unplug it for 15 minutes.
After the time has elapsed plug the unit in and turn it ON. Hopefully, during that timeout, the electronics reset and reverted back to the original factory settings, If so, you can now set the controls as you desire.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Humidifier gets ice on top of cabinate. It still produces water.


Most dehumidifiers have a defrost cycle that they run through, as needed. But, apparently, your is not functioning. Eventually, yours will stop collecting moisture, if this continues. In the interim, I would suggest turning the Master OnN/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit until it thaws. While it's unplugged, remove and clean the air intake filter on the front of the unit. If it's clogged it causes the unit to strain and may cause it to ice up. Once the filter is clean and the unit is un-thawed. Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set the controls as you normally do. Hopefully, that period of being unplugged will have allowed the unit to reset itself and work properly.

I have included a link to your Owners Manual that you can download and print for future reference.

If the above link fails go to the following link below and click on Owner Manual, near the top of the page.

I have a Comfort-Aire BHD-301 dehumidifier that runs but does not collect water. What should I do?


Hi,

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.

Shows tank is full even when empty.


Tank is not connecting with button/swith inside area where tank fits.

You may need to shim tank or use bungie cord to hold it in - the switch thinks that the tank has been removed

Good morning--my Comfort Aire dehumidifier will no longer run & is still under warranty. When I turn it on the red light just comes on.


May be power supply failure, faulty control panel or other problem. It may just need to be left unplugged overnight for reset.

Kfr 24w condensor will not run


Check the contactor to see if the contacts are stuck or welded together, if not check to see if you have 24 volts to the contactor, if you do then the thermostat is not opening.
