Question about Goldstar DH504EL Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Goldstar dehumidifier Our humidifier was repaired shortly after we bought it, (2007) and now it started running continuously. It is draining water thru the hose to a floor drain, but it never shuts off. I run it for a few hours and then have to pull the plug, I'm afraid of burning out the motor. I cleaned the filter and the fins are clean and not icing up. Any ideas?

Hi,

Two possibilities:
1. Continuous running and there is water coming out of the unit to the floor drain; the unit is just doing its job. It is probably just that there is that much humidity in the room;
2. the sensors are faulty or were bypassed during the repair - the sensor would be testing the water coming out, if there is water, the unit continues to work, if none, then it shuts off. Most would also have an overfill float switch, again which could be bypassed, that likewise control whether the unit will continue to run or stop.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Give it a good cleaning before you do anything else. If the fins or filter are dirty, you won't get good service from it. Make sure the drain path is open.

Goldstar dehumidifier won't run


Hi,
Sounds like this unit developed a freon leak and that will make it run hot like that...cheaper to replace it then to repair...

How do i hook up plastic attachment so i am able to run a hose to a drain for continual usuage DH404E


Most brands have a fitting molded into the drain pan that will let you attach a garden hose to the tank. You may have to drill a hole in the fitting to allow the water to drain through.

Runs all the time, not collecting water


I don't know your particular unit, but my guess is that the compressor is bad. If it is old, it may not be worth fixing.
