I have a Fedders dehumidifer model # A70145D2A-A-R. It is a few years old and it's worked pretty great but now it just runs continuously and no moisture is gathered. What can I do to fix it? I was...


You'd be hard pressed to find a Fedders like yours. They've been out of business for several years.

There are several basic things that can cause what you described.

1. The humidity extraction level is improperly set. Lower the level to 32-35%

2. A dirty of clogged air intake filter. Turn the unit OFF unplug it and remove the filter for cleaning.

3. Obstructed air space. A dehumidifier requires a minimum of 12" clear air space around the entire
unit.

4. The ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 & 60 Degrees F. Dehumidifiers do not work well in that temperature (Except low temp models). This especially true in a basement application, because the air temperature at floor level is colder than say, chest level. Raising the unit up off the floor onto a sturdy table, cabinet top, etc, that can handle the weight of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will normally resolve that problem.

5. The cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned.

Critical problems:
1 The humidity sensor has failed an needs to be replaced.

2.The compressor is low on refrigerant gas and needs to be recharged.

Sometimes the repairs (Time spent finding, the Parts & labor), if necessary, can cost almost as much or as much as a new unit, which would have a full warranty.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot the basic and solvable problems and you won't need to make any critical repairs. Please let me know. Thanks.

The stove is 26 years old. Has been working very well. Now the two heating elements on the left side of the stove and oven are not working. The pilot lights come on. Fuses in good shape and 220 volts...


check the contact points on the rear of the element they burn off after years of use, if the contacts are still good, Look at the element itself for any white marks on the element, if you see any , the element itself has probably burned out and need replacing , to get to the contacts,, depending on the oven, remove the back they should be right in sight , if you do need to replace the fittings on the wire ends, be sure and get heat range connectors

I live in a mobile home with a westinghouse DP 200 amp main breaker. it trips alot when i run the stove and the dryer along with other items.


You need to run a new circuit to the stove before your electrical wires catch on fire. that is a hazard you have taking a big chance if left alone. Your old wires and breaker is not heavy enough to run both so a complete rewiring job will be in order if not reaired very soon I would say from past experiences I've encountered

Westinghouse Kimberley Electric stove


The temperature control thermostat mechanism in these switches are frail, low quality and repeatedly fail. You will know they have failed (again and again) when you turn the stove ring on and you will only have full temp with no variance.
They must be replaced.
Most places sell the replacements at insane markups, sometimes as much as $50 each! They can be had for almost a quarter of that price. There is no difference between the $50 and $15 controls regardless of what the rip off merchants will try to tell you.
Ideally these controls should be replaced free of charge by the stove manufacturer as they have used a very inferior component in their product during the manufacturing process.
They have been used by several common manufacturers for many years but still have made no effort at all to correct this very dangerous condition.
The danger factor of this fault is ignored but should receive the utmost attention by the autorities asap.

Burner will not turn off


I would first check the infinite control switch (#WB24T10029) the part the knob slips onto. The next thing I'd check is the erc (#WB27T10231) control board. Hope that is helpful!
