What else is on the same circuit? Have you added any other appliances on that same circuit that were not on it before?

If no>>>you probably have a short in the unit, and it is grounding out>>>tripping the breaker before it starts a fire.

Also, check the breaker, they can go bad.

I bought a model 365 remington dehumidifier. I plugged it in and nothing lights up. I have it plugged in for the past 8 to 10m hous and still nothing. Should i be seeing the blue light up ?


Two things that you need to check: Make sure that the outlet the dehumidifier is plugged int, is in fact working. The circuit breaker for that outlet may be tripped or there may be a loose or damaged wire connection to the one of the outlet's terminals. I assume you are turning the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON of the dehumidifier, after you plugged the unit in and set the humidity extraction level below 40%?

I have a Kenmore dehumidifier 580.54701. It worked fine for two years, but now when it is plugged in and you hit "on" nothing happens. I took it apart, but cannot tell what is wrong. Do you think...


It could need replacing or the outlet that the unit is plugged into is at fault. Check you main circuit breaker panel, to see if a breaker has been tripped. Also, check the outlet's receptacle for internal damage or a loose or broken wire. In addition, try plugging it into another receptacle that is on a different circuit, than the one it's plugged into now. All these things are part of the process of elimination, in troubleshooting and finding the problem.

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

The compressor is trying to start and pulling high amps which trips the GFI...
You are better off replacing rather then repairing that unit.
