I do not have the adaptor for my maytag dehumidifier model #M7DH45B2A to attach the garden hose for continuous drainage. Where can I get one, or could you give me the specifications so I can go to the...

The drain hose connecter, which accepts a garden hose type coupling is an intricate part of the unit. It is not removable. If yours broke OFF, that's a different story. However, that Part # 5214A20027A Drain Hose Connect is no longer available. As are many other parts for Maytag Dehumidifiers, that were manufactured by the now defunct, Fedders.

Unfortunately, I do think you'll be able to run out to the local hardware store and get parts to fabricate one. As the lion's share of the part is internal.

I'm sorry I don't better news for you. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Frost build up on a dehumidifier maytag model M7D45B2A A-R. Built up again after completely defrosted and built up again after cleaning filter and unit.

The model you have was made for Maytag by Fedders. Unfortunately, Fedders as you knew them, when you purchased the unit, is no longer in business.

The part you need to replace is CRCFD2518-020- Pc board w/auto restart dehumidify and with anti-icing thermostat (defrost thermostat). this unit also include the humidistat control. However, that part is no longer available and there are no substitutions for that part.

Don't feel bad. This part was also used by many other name brand manufacturers and is no longer available for their dehumidifiers ether.

I'm really sorry, I wish I had better news for you.

Fan not working, outlet is live, product is 6 mos old, located in an indoor swimming pool (endless swim machine) Hi E Dry 100,

If the fan does not operate with the fan switch set "on", there is a problem with the power supply, internal wiring, or the fan itself.

First make sure the dehumidifier is plugged in to a working outlet.

Next unplug the dehumidifier and remove the cabinet cover. Check the internal wiring for loose connections.

Next remove the fan and check that it is able to spin freely (by hand). If it spins freely, it should be replaced. Call the manufacturer at 1-800-533-7533 for parts and instructions.

After about 5 minutes the unit stops working. No sound or even a fan noise. I just cleaned the filter to see if that helps, but it didn't.

Is the fan running and stopping before the unit completely quits?
If the fan quits the compressor won't run very long.
I would start with the fan motor or capacitor.
Shut the power off to the unit, spin the blower wheel to see if it spins freely. If it doesn't spin freely, (there appears to be a little drag when you spin it),the bearings are bad, if it does spin freely, then try moving the motor shaft from side to side if there’s any play in the shaft side to side then the bearings are worn and motor needs replaced. Then, check the capacitor, if it’s bulging even slightly, the capacitor is bad and needs replaced. Most of the time people replace the capacitor if motor seems ok. If capacitor is ok, turn power on to see if the motor is getting the proper voltage, if it is and not trying to run, then the windings are probably open, the motor's bad and needs replaced.

Dehumidifier capacitor

A fundamental explanation of a capacitor is in order.. All capacitors ( regardless of the number of terminals.. ) have a Positive and Negative post. So if you know which wire is Pos and which is Negative..then you can atach accordingly.. unfortunately, your pictures did not come thru as pictures so I have no idea what you've been confronted with.. If you want to e mail me direct and include your pictures.. I might be better able to assist you.. I can be contacted at

Your call.. if my explanation above doesn't get you going..

Hi barkas4,
I had the same problem with an Ebac machine a few years ago. I figured that it would be worth trying a new capacitor - surely only a couple of ££ or $$. So I took the machine apart - loads of screws and bits of casing everywhere - bought a new capacitor (£14 !!!) and it still wouldn't run :-(

I suspect that the failed capacitor caused the electric motor driving the compressor to cook itself while stalled. It is now in the corner of the garage where it will stay until I need the space.

It's a real shame that our tendency to buy the cheapest products has driven down manufacturers standards to the point where stuff is carefully designed to last for its warrant period plus a day.

But I digress! My machine had the capacitor (400V, 2 uF) just next to the control circuit pcb. It was a black block about 2" x 1" x1/2" with two spade terminals on it. One had broken off. As I understand it, the motor doesn't "know" which way to turn without the capacitor, so it just sits and hums and overheats.

The bottom line (this one) is that an electrician may be able to tell you that the capacitor is defective, but that may already have killed the motor.

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge. If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help
you further. Cheers, D

There is an internal fuse. Take off the outer plastic casing. The fuse is on the bottom of the board on the upper right of the unit. It's a 12 amp fuse. I had the same problem and found the fuse blown.
