Question about Allergy Buyers Club Home Low Temp Dehumidifier - Ebac HD880 Dehumidifier

Open Question

I have a ebac 6000 de-humidifier, which has worked fine until now. When the unit is switched on, the fan comes on as normal, but the compressor does not kick in as it had been doing. I can hear a relay click when the compressor would normally kick in. It has stopped collecting water, and it seems only the fan works. I have the unit in pieces at the moment, searching for the problem, but I need help!.. Thanks in advance!!

My ebac 2650e has started shuddering when on the eco auto setting but is fine on fast settings. It also makes a rattling sound. help!!


The fan is mounted on a very poor quality 3 angle mount. The weight of the motor distorts the mount over time so the the fan starts clipping other fittings when spinning. You can turn the mount around so the motor hangs upright again. The latest EBACs are of very poor quality...

I have an ebac dehumidifier i think 6000 model and it appears to work fine. the fan runs ok the compressor seems to kick in ok but the tank will not fill. i had it on in my room for approx 30 mins and...


If the room temperature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
I out mine over the floor drain.
Turn off and it will defrost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifiers work below a room temp of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensor from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.

My dehumidifier no longer gets warm whats wrong


The thermosenser on the fan motor may be blown if the fan isn't blowing.

If it is also not extrating motsture then ther may be a coolant/compressor issue - time for a new unit

Dehumidifier won't run


After all that testing you have diagnosed the problem. It is the main circuit board. So there is not reason to do any more test. I would just get a new control board and off you go

Year 2005 cycling fan and compressor


Your unit is probably operating in defrost mode. When you use a dehumidifier in a cold room, the condensing coils can freeze water. The unit senses this and thus stops the compressor until the water frozen on the coils melts. Then it resumes its cycle. This is a problem you will have during the winter months. It makes the operation of the unit inefficient, but this is otherwise normal behavior.

De Longhi DE220 De-Humidifier not collecting water


Hi there - you have to vacuum the filter several times. You can pull it out of the back left hand side of the unit. Vacuum it several times, and then start the unit on the lower fan setting, at a humidity level of around 60%. It will kick in after a bit, and then you can start adjusting the humidity level to where you would normally use it.

Sometimes - after you have vacuumed the filter, it still doesn't work. I used my fingers to pick lint off the filter, and ran a BIC safety razor over it as well, to try and get more out of the filter. You can also wash the filter in warm water, and leave it to dry over night. Don't put it back in until it's completely dry.

This will work! Cheers... E

The following statement is a parameter for all dehumidifiers and some of the control issues may vary, but the theory is the same.

Most dehumidifiers have a "Frost Guard" mounted on the condensor coil. If frost accumulates on the condensor coil the frost guard turns the compressor off until the frost melts, then comes back on again. For the dehumidifier to work properly, the surrounding (ambient), temperature must be higher than 65 degress. This temperature allows the moisture in the air to condense on the coils and drip into the reservoir without freezing up on the condensor coil. Also, if the humidity is too low, (below 45%), the same condition will occur. So it will help to keep the parameters in mind when you have this issue.
If your model does not employ a "Frost-Guard" the condition you describe will avail itself when the above parameters are not met.
Simply unplug, or turn off the unit, until the above parameters are met or exceeded.


Thank you for your allowing me to advise you on this issue.

DH30 Dehumidifier Compressor Does not Operate


I just picked one up at a tag sale, seller said it worked sometimes. Seems to have the same problem as yours. I took the time to tweak all of the connections and then re-soldered the control board with no luck. I finally disconnected the humidity control and it worked fine. By disconnecting the humidity control the unit defaults to it's highest setting and you have to unplug the unit to turn it off. Conclusion so far is that the humidity control rheostat is bad.
Note: Now while running the fan runs continuously and the compressor cycles on and off every 10 to 15 minutes. This may to be normal since the unit appears to be doing its job and I'm not sure how it is supposed to run since a purchased it broken.
