Question about Woods WD25G Dehumidifier

Open Question

I have a Woods WD25G deshumidifier brand new in box that I have found in storage and the fan runs great but the compressor (Samsung FMA 70C2Y) doesn't run but try to... Once plugged in AC outlet, the compressor try to start sounding like "KRRRRR" and evenly shuts down under the overload realay. I make one or two seconds tryouts and then close control each time in intervals of 5 or 10 mins between each tryout. So, I have noticed that the compressor get hot on the top in few tryouts (about 3 tryouts). Sometimes, it seems to go to start faster and get running but stills stucked! What is this? Too long shelving? Loss of oil due to long storage? Did you think that the compressor has sticked up? Did you think that continuing do make two second tryouts that the compressor will finish to unstuck and run? I don't understand why a brand new machine in box has an already broken compressor! I have noticed that this often occurs with Samsung products whatever the type! Thanks a lot! LHUPA

Doesn't run, turn on or anything............I think it has died. Bought in 2004. Any suggestions? 65 pint/2 speed. Hose connection to drain, no reservoir needed.


the full bucket switch on these models goes bad, o.k.,i know,you said its hooked to a hose to the drain so the bucket never fills up,but,seriously,test the "bucket full" (in the upper right hand area of where the bucket installs) shut-off switch,as this will kill one of these units if it goes bad as it carries all the units power through it at all times,i replace many of these every season,if this switch goes bad it shuts off the entire unit

HOW TO USE


Hello,

follow the instructions below on how to use your dehumidifier:

Prepare the room for the dehumidifier by vacuuming, dusting and cleaning the room. Be especially careful to have all mold removed prior to using the dehumidifier.
Plug in the dehumidifier into a grounded outlet.
Set the dehumidifier to high in order to remove excess moisture from the room.
Wait for the dehumidifier to run several cycles, removing all undesired moisture from the air. This may take days or even weeks in especially damp rooms.
Adjust the setting of the dehumidifier when the air has reached your desired comfort level. Make the setting one that will maintain the current conditions.
Good luck.

Manual ed50


Hi. Not sure if you were ever able to obtain a manual, but I found one online as I am trying frantically to find a new blower motor for my Wood's Frostguard ED50. The link I found the manual at is www.woods.se The dehumidifiers are apparently from Canada.

LG LD65E humidity variance


Is the compressor running or is it just the fan? If its just the fan it is because it is cycling the air and it uses that air flow to check the humidity in the air. If the fan runs non-stop and the compressor does not turn on or the fan does not shut off there is a problem with this unit and you will need to replace it. Since it is brand new you should still be able to return it to the store.
