Question about Danby DDR600R Silhouette Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Does not produce water

Hi:
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%.

Hi,
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

You may have the humidity level set to high. Usually anything above 50%, will show little results, unless your house is flooded.. Turn the humidity setting to the lowest level that your humidifier has
and give that a try.

The fan runs a lot, because it's designed to almost constantly move the air around. That way, if the humidity level rises above the setting on the dehumidifier, it can sense it and the compressor will turn ON.

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

Unit run continueously... but produces no water in a humid condition


It sounds like a refrigeration problem possibly a leak in the system or compressor is not kicking on. Either way its probably cheaper to replace the dehumidifier.

Kenmore dehumidifier runs but won't collect water


Hi,
If you haven't done so already, try removing and cleaning the inlet filter screen which is almost certainly just behing the inlet grille. It may slide upwards out of the casing or downwards unto the bucket area. If this is blocked with fluff then no moist air will get to the cold pipes, so little or no water will be extracted. There's also a chance that the humidity sensor is clogged with fluff, so fooling the system into thinking the room is pretty dry, in which case the compressor will probably not run.
A running compressor can usually be detected as a deep throbbing from the machine. If it is running, but not cooling the pipes behind the intake grille, 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 may be the cause.

Explore along these lines and let me know what you find.
Cheers, D
