SOURCE: collecting very little or no water

Given all other variables are the same (location, average humidity, humidistat setting, etc.) I would speculate either:

- the compressor is not running as much as before, or
- the evaporator is icing up and blocking ariflow, or
- the compressor is not getting evaporator coils cool enough, or
- the fan is not running at top speed.

Have you checked for icing?
Has the humidistat setting been inadvertently changed?
Does the fan seem to be operating normally?
Do you hear the compressor "kicking in", or is it just the fan you hear?

SOURCE: Dehumidifier not collecting the water

This isn't something that regular homeowners can do themselves, as you need to have technical training in order to remove and recharge refridgeration/dehumidification units.€

Unlike most cars and trucks that can easily be recharged with Freon kits from a local auto parts store, most refridgeration appliances require a special set of charging gauges and different refridgerents to accomplish the task. Some of these consumer products don't have charging ports eithe, meaning that a tech will have to cut into the system to make the repair.

With that being said, try taking off the front grill and/or covers to vaccuum off the coils and the evaporator. Since dust and dirt can accumulate in these parts, it will cause the unit to run hotter and be less efficient meaning it won't be able to cool as well or extract as much moisture (condensate) from the air.

Also, remove and clean/replace any air filters you have - let them air dry before replacing them, as wet filters create too much back pressure on the system.

Hopefully all you have is a dirty, clogged unit and a good complete cleaning will get your unit running well again!

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

If it was frozen and is now thawing, you will probably find some water in the collection container and some on the floor.

It collects some water but it also spits water out


The dehumidifier has a non-removable tray under the coils (they look like radiators) that collects and drains the water away. If the tray or drain gets clogged with dirt or slime the water doesn't drain away well. Some water is picked up by the fan and is blown out the vent. Take the covers off the machine and give everything a good cleaning. If you get water on any electrical parts, let the machine dry thoroughly before plugging in.

Just replaced fan motor,and blade works fine,been running for 4 days,but no water collected,in container home homedry 660


These are somewhat related to cooling systems so the system may need a coolant recharge like any AC. Check your user guide to see if there is any mention of a need for recharging.
