Question about Dehumidifiers

1 Answer

Water collection My 54351 dehumidifier only collects about 1/2 cup of water in a 10 hour period, but after I turn it off for several hours, I later find over a quart of water in the collection bin. I do have a high humidity rate when I run the unit and a temperature of over 70 degrees out. Can you tell me what is wrong and if it is something I can buy parts for and repair myself if needed?

    I have the same problem, and don't know how to go about getting it fixed, or trying to finx it myself. Any advice?

    Had this issue as well, put off looking for a solution, and then took it apart to check and see if any obvious problems were showing. I disconnected the power switch connection, and then reconnected it after looking around inside. Now nothing happens, except a clicking noise in the switch when turned to Extra Dry. Even before disassembling, the "Normal" mode had stopped allowing any operation of the unit.

Kenmore 54351 Dehumidifier is leaking -- water isn't going into the tray, but seems to be leaking out into the floor.


Mine is doing the same thing. The bucket is dry and the floor is flooded, so it is not an inability to condense, and it is not that the bucket has overflowed, and the bucket does not have a leak. It had been working great and then this suddenly started happening, it's as if the water is not flowing along the proper route and instead is gathering behind the bucket.

Nno much water generated


Hello,

First, make sure the humidistat isn't set too high by adjusting it to the lowest humidity setting and running it again.

Next, test the dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower running. If you don't see water collecting in the unit after several minutes, turn the unit off and clean all dehumidifier filters and coils. If, after adjusting the settings and cleaning the unit, you still don't see water collecting, you may have a refrigeration issue.

Take care.

My 54351 dehumidifier runs for hours and doesn't collect much wat


I hope someone answers this because I'm having the same problem. Mine is about 4 years old. I thought it was my filthy filter but cleaning didn't change the problem.
