There is ice on the filter and the filter will not come out. Tried turning off so it would melt, but filter still stuck. It is summer so why is ice forming?


I have had a AD75UST0 WHIRLPOOL Dehumidifier for several years. I had mine ice up once or twice particularly on very high humidity days > 90%. Once it thawed out. I was able to remove the filter. Most likely it is due to dust getting on coils & condenser Or actually has a Freon leak. to resolve the dirty coils you can easily dissemble (that is remove front & rear cover) it to give coils and condenser a good thorough cleaning. It the coils and condenser are not at all dirty, then is not the cause of the icing. The units are typically not serviceable - i.e. a disposable small appliance.

Ice forms on the coils. Would wet clothing hung in the area contribute to this problem? The temperature of the area is in the high 50's - 60's.


Yes. Wet clothing would act to put Humidity in the air. think of the air as a sponge the more you heat the air the more the air will take moisture out of its surrondings. The more you cool the air the less moisture it can hold.
a Dehumidifier is a reverse refrigrator.. Air is forced over cool coils and the moisture forms and freezes on the coils (ice). The unit turns off and the coil and ice takes heat up from the surrounding area (makes room colder;Clothing takes longer to dry; The temperature in that room should be were people reside 70-80 degrees). the ice melts and water drips into a holding container which you dump periodically. Solution: 1. remove wet clothing or 2. raise temperature in room. 3. put a space heater in that room instead of Dehumidifier

Blows electric breaker model AD50USS2


Hi,
If you are blowing the breaker then you are pulling way to much current on the startup or you have a short in the unit...
either way you probably will be much better off by replacing the unit with a new one... they do not cost enough that it is worth sinking hundreds of dollars into fixing an old one...
