The humidity switch (Hydrometer sensor) may be at fault or compressor or fan is not running.First You could go directly to the compressor and make sure it is or is not getting power first. If the compressor has power then the compressor is suspect (sometimes when 1 wont start it gets hot to the touch) In any case the fan(s) should run with it on and trying to dehumidify. Look at my tips and tricks for compressor check out if it has power and dosn't run..

2 KINDS of CONTROLS for your DEHUMIDIFY
If it has an electronic display the sensor will be a small probe close to the inlet of the air inlet circulation. Maybe its not in place.This type control is not something that can usually be checked without an ohm meter, thermometer, and Hydrometer or Psychometric measuring device to arrive at the wet-dry bulb temperatures thus determining the humidity and charts to determine the resistance value of the sensor(s). So replace the board and sensor on this type.

Condensation on frigidaire dehumidifier turn to ice


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that the condensation is turning to ice on your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# LAD704TDL. This can be a possible cause of your dehumidifier being turned on recently. This is normal, due to refrigerant rushing through the coil. Frost will usually disappear within 60 minutes. Another possibility is the room temperature is too low. All dehumidifiers will operate satisfactorily at temperatures greater than 41 degrees Fahrenheit. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your dehumidifier status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Haier hd656e, my dehumidifier runs about 30 sec and turns off,


Hi,
This sounds like a main circuit board problem and is very common with many dehumidifiers... They can be replaced on some units. You can do a search online for the part easily...to see if it is available.

Dehumidifier comes on runs for hours but does not dehumidify. The water pan is empty.


is there a setting ?? Dehumidify ??? as opposed to "Fan" if so set to Dehumidify...also turn up the dial to a higher number.....Is the element in the back Cold???? If on Dehumidify . turned up high and the element is cold...then you have a refrigerant leak and not worth fixing unless its under warranty
