Question about Maytag M7DH65B2A Dehumidifier
My unit will only run breifly (maybe 30 seconds) then it shuts off and the "full" light comes on even though there isn't a drop of liquid in it.
Hi, I'm not familiar with your model but there is usually a plastic rod sticking down from the "roof" of the place where the bucket goes, and this is pushed up by the floating part of the bucket.As the bucket gets full, the float pushes up on the rod which activates the microswitch to turn of the compressor.
With me so far? OK, it could be that the rod is stuck in the "up" position and needs to be pulled down so the microswitch can go to the normal working position.
There is likely to be another mechanism which prevents the compressor running when the bucket is absent, or maybe they are combined on your model. Check that little rod and find out if it moves as it should.
Hope this helps. If this "fixes ya", I'd appreciate a rating for my reply, If not, please delay the rating and add a comment with any extra info you have and I will try to think of something else.
