Soleus CFM40E Fan runs, no dehumidification

Posted by on

  • Cupp777 Feb 09, 2009

    Fan will constantly run but it never collects water. I can feel the heat from the compressor at the back of the unit, but not sure it is working.

    My 4 year old model has the same problem. It was working fine until I shut it off for a long period of time. I'm thinking it will be cheaper to buy a new one than to spend the money shipping and repairing unless there is a quick fix.

    Would appreciate input if anyone finds a solution.

Looks like 1 yr warranty so if a coolant system problem and more than 1 yr old, not worth repairing, but try:

Fan and compressor run but coils not cold and no dehumidification is happening.


If your compressor is running but the coils are not getting cold, then you have a problem in your refrigerant circuit.....Most likely a restriction or a leak with a leak being the more likely of the two.

Compressor running very hot but almost no cooling. Fan running


make sure the coils are clean both evaporator and condenser,then if there is a capacitor in the motor circuitry,check this,finally if the coils frost,then clear up and frost and clear up time and again,this is a sign of low refrigerant R134a,and this also will make the compressor run hot

My Soleus Dehumidifer is not dehumidifying


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.

Does not collect water .. fan runs


If it is not blowing out air from front grill then fan is burned out and needs replacing - $50 do-it-yourself (lots of disassembly) $100 for them to do it. Is it still in warranty? (1-2 years for fan/sensors))

Unit Runs (fan and condenser) but no water?


By condenser I assume you mean the compressor is running. Is there ice forming on the front coil?
