Where is the filter


Usually it does. It will be mounted outside of the fan. Look for a tab that can act as a thumb hold. Pull it straight out. It will be washable and reusable. Clean it & put it back in. Don't discard it. Or consult the users manual.

How do you clean the filter


In order to look up the filter change procedure I would need the specific model number. However, filter changes or washing should be done regularly. Look for a very simple lift-out design that is washable in the kitchen or laundry sink. Soak in soapy water and rinse with spray nozzle.

As for the symptom "Blows out warm air" this is expected. The dehumidifier is less than 100% efficient, meaning that the energy that is used produces heat in the exhaust air. A 100% efficient design would still send all the heat energy of condensation (endothermic phase change) into the exhaust air. You should expect 1072 BTU per pint (1 pound of water). This is far more than the heat of crystallization (144 BTU per pound of ice) and therefore much more sensible when you feel the discharge air from the dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers typically operate in basements to both warm and dry the area where a sump pump may be operating to remove the water that seeps through the foundation. A dehumidifier is not a good idea for warm areas of the house. This will decrease the efficiency by increasing the temperature differential needed to get the evaporator coil below the dew point to cause condensation. The condenser coil will be much hotter than expected if the unit is operated in a warm humid room. Only air conditioners which discharge condensate and exhaust air to the outside of the structure should be used to cool a room.

How can I purchase a replacement air filter for keystone kstad70b?


The filter in your Keystone KSTAD70B is meant to be washed. It is not listed as a replacement part in the owners manual. This is copied from the manual:

3. Clean the air filter
Remove the filter every two weeks based on normal
operating conditions.
Remove the filter from the top of the unit (See.Fig.11a),
or to remove the filter,remove Bucket then pull filter
downwards (See.Fig.11b).
Wash the filter with clean water then dry.
Re-install the filter,replace Bucket. CAUTION:
DO NOT operate the dehumidifier without a filter
because dirt and lint will clog it and reduce
performance.

If you have lost or destroyed the filter, go to Amazon and order the Duck Brand 1285234 Replacement Air Conditioner Foam Filter, 24-Inch by 15-Inch by 1/4-Inch, 1-Pack for 96 cents with free shipping as an add-on item to any order. It is also washable so you will be able to use it like the OEM filter material.

Needs new filiter


Unless the filter is totally warn out or destroyed, it's not necessary to replace it. As it is washable in warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse and dry thoroughly before reinstalling it. Never operate the dehumidifier without the filter in place. Doing so can damage the unit.

If you need to replace it, in the USA call 1 (800) 865-6330.. In Canada Call 1 (888) 335-6644.
In Mexico call 800-711-8805.

I hope I was able to help you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Esco Oasis 2700L dehumidifier ices up. Is there a filter to be cleaned and if so, how to I get to it?


Hi,

The most common cause of frost and ice buildup on a dehumidifier is because the unit is operating in temperatures that are too cold. Many dehumidifiers are not equipped to run at temperatures below 65 degrees Fahrenheit.
To fix this problem, Position the dehumidifier in an area where there is at least one foot of clearance around the unit in order to allow for proper air circulation during its operation. Close all windows, doors and other outside openings to make sure your unit isn't attempting to remove moisture from areas outside of the immediate room. Determine the temperature of the room by checking a nearby thermostat or by using a hand-held thermometer.

Check the filter for dirt and buildup. Unplug the unit from the electrical source and check the filter by opening the filter compartment. If the filter is dirty, it will restrict airflow through the unit and lead to freezing. Soleus recommends lightly vacuuming the surface of the filter to remove dirt. The filter also can be washed in warm water if it is extremely dirty. Once clean, place the filter back in its compartment. Allow for the ice to melt and then restart your dehumidifier.

Does this model have a washable filter and where would it be so I can remove it and clean it. Pat


Yes, it has a washable filter. To access it, remove the water collection bucket and look up just inside the bucket holder. There you should see a tab type handle. That's the frame for the filter. Pull it down and out. Wsh it with warm water and liquid dish washing detergent. Rinse and dry thoroughly, before reinstalling it. DO NOT operate the unit without the filter.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.
