Question about Danby DDR600R Silhouette Dehumidifier
The dehumidifier runs and the compressor sometimes sounds like it is running but does not produce any water. Besides this the RH indicated on the unit is definitely lower than the actual in the room. It displays 30% when I suspect that it is more like 70%.
Is there any sign of ice or condensation on the cold pipes? You may be able to see them by removing the filter screen (if present on your model) from behind the inlet grille. There's also a chance that the humidity sensor is clogged with fluff, so fooling the system into thinking the room is pretty dry. A running compressor can usually be detected as a deep throbbing from the machine.
If it is running, but not cooling the pipes, then you may have lost the refrigerant from the system via a leak. If the air coming out of the machine is warm (caused by the compressor running) but there is no water produced this is usually the cause. This is usually beyond the scope of a DIY repair.
Hope this helps. If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills.
If they do not, please hold off on the rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D
