Edison 40 fan starts -then trips breaker (before compressor kicks on)...toast?


Maybe..but what else do you have on the same circuit? Could be overloaded by another appliance. Make sure you unplug all items on the same circuit, then try it again. If it still blows most likely its in the unit, if if runs with no problem, issue is overloaded circui, too many other things on the smae line.

I have my Edison 40 running at the highest setting (lowest humidity) and it isn't lowering my humidity. The hose to my floor drain emits only a tiny drop once in a while. Is there something for me to...


Ronald, first,check the air in take filter for dirt and/or clogs. Also check your drain hose for a blockage, as well as the hose connection on the unit. In addition, if the cooling coils are dirty, this will cause the unit to strain to keep up. You should be able to access them, after you remove the air intake filter. Clean them with mild soap and warm water. Rinse and thoroughly dry them, before applying a very light coat of WD40. CAUTION: BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY SERVICE ON THE UNIT, TURN THE MASTER ON/OFF SWITCH TO OFF AND UNPLUG THE UNIT.

I assume you have one of the older Edison 40 Dehumidifiers, that doesn't have an LED readout. And this is where it can sometimes get confusing, when setting the humidity extraction level. Maximum doesn't always indicate the maximum extraction level. And in your case, I believe if you set it on Minimum, you would get better results. Always allow a minimum of 12" clear air space all around the unit, while in operation.

If, after you troubleshoot the above things and want to do a good in home test of the unit. Move the unit to the bathroom, plug it it in, turn it ON and set it for Minimum. Turn the shower ON hot enough to generate steam. Do Not turn the bathroom exhaust fan ON. Close any window(s) that may be open. As you exit the bathroom, close the door. Wait 15 - 20 minutes before returning to the bathroom. Then turn the shower OFF and allow the dehumidifier to run additional 5 minutes. Turn the unit OFF and check the bucket for signs of water. If you find some, the unit is working as it should.

If you find n water in the bucket. The unit's compressor probably needs a recharge of refrigerant gas.As the level may be low.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Compressor and fan both kick on when starting. Frosts up (normal for this time of year) but then compressor stops but fan continues to run but compressor does not start up again....


From what you have described, it sounds like the defrost sensor may be bad. However, if you're operating the unit in a temperature of 40 degrees or lower. That's the problem. If in a basement application, keep in mind the floor temperature is lower than the air temperature.

Also, cleaning the air intake filter on a regular basis will help.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.
