Question about Haier Dehumidifiers

Open Question

Bought a new dehudifier and plugged it in early this afternoon. Basement doesn't seem that damp (not at all) however the machine continuously runs. Have I set it up improperly by the settings or should I just be patient. To have system run always not energy efficient. Please advise.

SOURCE: works well but

Yup, they eat energy.

An electric dehumidifier includes a refrigeration cycle that is very similar to a window AC units and refrigerators. They cool the air in the basement to condense and collect water and remove humidity, heat the air as a required consequence of the refrigeration cycle and dump it back to your basement.

Two sources of humidity in basements include warm outside air that naturally cools due to below grade earth contact and water passing from the ground though the floors and walls and evaporating into the basement. Dehumidifiers do most of the work in the summer when higher temperatures outside enable air to hold more water content.

In the winter, cooler outside air contains less moisture by weight eventhough it may be raining and the relative humidity in basement will be less because the air is warmed relative to the outside. The lower moisture content in the winter also absorbs the water passing through the walls and floor.

From an energy perspective, you may want the humidity set NOT below 50%. This will keep humidity below the level mold desires, but prevents the dehumidifier from doing more work and eating more energy than needed. A cheap battery powered temp/humidy meter left in your basement will help. Sources that include the "mold triangle" (temperature, water & food) often separate fact from expensive hype.

If the dehumidifier doesn't keep up, consider adding a moisture barrier to the basement walls and floors such as Dry-lock and floor paints to ****** moisture entry. Moisture barriers act very similar with water as insulation does with heat. They don't eliminate the need for a dehumidifier, but they reduce the work they do and energy they eat.

SOURCE: Due to the recent rains and flooding our basement

If the machine's compressor runs when you switch it on, then turn the machine on maximum and let it run for an hour or so. Then check the coils in the back with your hand. If they are not getting cold at all, then there is a significant problem with the refrigeration process in the unit. It may have developed a leak and allowed your refrigerant gas to escape, or there may be another internal problem with the compressor. Either way you would need to have it serviced by a fridge technician, or more likely just replaced with a whole new unit since both options can potentially cost about the same.

If the unit runs normally and the coils are getting cold, then make sure they are not totally icing up which will impede the unit's performance. Also make sure that the basement is warm enough. A dehumidifier will not work properly if the ambient air temperature is too low. Basically, the warmer and more humid the room is, the better they work. Add heat to the basement if necessary to improve the unit's performance.

Kenmore dehumidifier - machine runs - compressor ' fan - the black ball when hanging inside everything stops. Lift the balls it runs . Solution? Temperature is around 70 / basement damp. Any suggestions ?...


Check the switch that the ball is attached to. The ball should work such that when it floats to to the top of the bucket the unit shuts off the prevent overflow. The switch may have both normally open (NO) and normally closed (NC) contacts. If this is the case switch the wires from the one set of pins to the other and retest. Usually the plug will have two wires....those kind of switches has three pins. The center pin is usually the common. If this is the case move the plug from the pair on one side to the pair on the other.

My husband saids run the dehumifier on low setting to take out dampness in the basement? I said no, run the dehumifier on higher setting like 50 or 60 to take more water out of he basement? What should...


Actually, your husband is correct. The settings reflect the amount of humidity you want to remain in the house. I really don't think you want to leave 50 to 60% humidity in the house.

35% removes the greatest amount of humidity.

Hope this helped answer your question and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I would like to know the average monthly cost of using a 65 pint dehumidifier if it runs continuously for 24 hours for about 300 days a year


To find the Annual Energy Cost, look in the Owner's Manual or other paper work that came with the unit. The Energy Star rating paper work will have that information. However, that cost does not include routine maintenance cost or any repairs that may arise from running the unit constantly for 360 days. Sounds like you'll be running it in a damp basement.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Just purchased this product and we are having difficulty figuring out the best setting so that the unit will shut off and on. It seems to only run continious. The model no. is VK0025000CURNPF735A0794 ...


When a humidifier is first placed into service depending on the environment you placed it in, it can take up to a week to actually shut off.
Think about this...
Q? Why did you buy the unit in the first place?
Ans. Area you want to use it in is damp.

So the NEW humidifier has to really work hard to remove moisture from everything in the space.
Furiniture, structure to include cement floors and walls. This can take a very very long time initially. If there is a sump pump in the basement the humidifier needs to be placed quite a distance from the sump area. If the structure foundation and walls are allowing water seepage into the basement it may NEVER shut off.

If it does not shut off after several days. Move the unit to a small room upstairs that you can place it in and close the door just to test to see if the unit will cycle on and off. If it cycles on and off in a small room you may want to inspect your basement foundation and check for plumbing problems.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

The humidifier runs but is not collecting water... so humidity level never drops.


My brand new frigidaire 50 liter dehumidifier has been on for two days and has not collected water from my damp basement. It is on the factory settings: high fan and "CO" (continuous).

Dehumidifier automatic on and off function not working


Unless you live in a dry environment or place the unit in a hermetically sealed room, it probably will not turn off. As the air dries within the room, more moisture comes in with the air. As long as the air outside of the room is more humid than the room this will be true.

Fan runs, no water collected


It appears that these units have a history of defectiveness. I bought one in late 2010 and it pooped early 2012. If the model is still made, buy a new one, return the defective one in the new unit's packing materials for a refund. Or keep the second (new) unit as a back-up, because the new (first) one may just fail again a short while later.
