Question about Kenmore 54701 Dehumidifier
Two part question: Why won't it work and how do I get the back off?
It worked fine last year but after sitting approximately 8 months it doesn't turn on anymore. When I plug it in it makes a soft beep but doesn't do anything. I tried to take the back off (removing the screws) but the back wont come off - it's stuck. Am I missing something?
I had the same problem (minus the cover issue) . To get the cover off, take off all visible screws. Slide a small screwdriver into the space between the back and the side cover. You will see a slight opening where the tabs fit in, you will need to carefully pry the tabs out. However, most likely your problem is with the front panel. You take the front panel off much the same way. 2 screws are concealed by the bucket. I had the same beep no display, thought it was the main pcb, which I ordered and installed. That did not fix it. I cleaned the display pcb, and jiggled the buttons, that seemed to fix it. I think the button to increase the humidity was stuck closed, as I could replicate the problem by holding that button down and then plugging in the dehumidifier. I would start by cleaning or replacing the front panel pcb, which is about $14.
