I have a brand new dehumidifier (properly sized) that is running 24 hours/day and producing some water (roughly 1L).


with a reading of 66 to 67 % rh this is a bit low for normal rooms humidity , I cant see why you'd want to try to get it down to 55% unless its for a special purpose (drying paint?) , I get this question a lot from folks , what I tell em is if you set your airconditioner in your home down to 30 degrees would your house ever get that cold = "no " the houses ability to heat itself is greater than the a/c units ability to cool it (even if its properly sized) so why would you expect a small appliance like a dehumidifier to be able to do any different ? all you end up doing is over working the appliance and costing you extra money in lost power
the general excepted room humidity is 70% rh this is a industry standard ,that all appliances are designed to achieve , and yes as the room gets dryer it will extract less and less water from air

I have an LG model LHD65EBL dehumidifier. The humidistat will not change from 70 when I push either + or -. The fan runs well and the compressor sounds like it is running well Some water comes out when the...


Prt of the problem may be a dirty or clogged air intake filter.

Turn the unit OFF and unplug, it before removing the filter to check and clean it.
You can ether vacuum it or if it's really dirty & clogged, wash it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly, shake off access water and allow it to dry completely, before reinstalling it.
Never operate the unit without the filter in place. As this could damage the unit.

Plug the unit back in and turn it ON. Try lowering the humidity extraction level now, using the arrow down button. For a very damp, humid basement application 35% is a good setting to start with for several days.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Fan works. Filters and clean. Heater a Can aster seems warm. Room is damp. Unit does not produce water


There are 5 basic, but solvable reason for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.. Yiu have already cleaned the filter, so that one's covered.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If you have a mechanical unit
turn the control knob to Mai=ximum.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder
level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

Hope his helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a DDR7009EE and the fan runs continuously even when the humidity in the room is below the setting on the machine. Shouldn't the fan stop when the desired humidity is reached?


Lyle, your particular model is designed for the fan to function constantly. However, the fan running doesn't mean the compressor is always running. The reason the unit was designed this way, is for the air to be continually moving, and when the humidity sensor picks up a rise in the humidity level (above where you have it set) the compressor will turn ON and extract that humidity.

Your unit is working as it should. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

It could be what you say or it could be that the humidification extraction level is set too High. Try lowering the extraction percentage to 32 - 35%.

If that doesn't help and you'd like to order replacement control board/panel. Call Haier Parts and Technical Support 877-337-3639. But, you may find it cheaper to replace the unit, then repair it.

Plug it in turn it on and nothing in the bucket after several hours


Hi, Mindy! The following is an overall review of what causes the problem you listed.

If the room air is less than the set air, then there is no water in the bucket, because there is almost no humidity in the air. If it is winter, there is likely not enough humidity in the air to have water collect in the bucket. A dehumidifier will only pick up humidity out of warm air. If you are running a dehumidifier in your basement in the winter, the room may be damp, but too cold for the dehumidifier to pull out the humidity. Try running the unit in the bathroom after having a hot shower without the bathroom fan on. If working correctly the unit should draw water. In addition, if you set the humidity level you want to maintain higher the actual humidity level in the house or room, it won't pickup and collect any moisture. The fans on most of the dehumidifiers on the market today run almost constantly. They do this, so that the room air is always moving and if humidity is detected, it will extract it.

Hope this helps you understand how dehumidifiers function and what you can expect from them under given circumstances,. In fact, there may not be anything mechanically wrong with yours. But, to make sure, do what is suggested above to test the unit.

Compressor sounds as if its on, the fan is on, but water is not extrated from the air


If the room air is less than the set air then there is no water in the bucket because there is almost no humidity in the air. If it is winter, there is likely not enough humidity in the air to have water collect in the bucket. A dehumidifier will only pick up humidity out of warm air. If you are running a dehumidifier in your basement in the winter, the room may be damp, but too cold for the dehumidifier to pull out the humidity. Try running the unit in the bathroom after having a hot shower without the bathroom fan on. If working correctly the unit should draw water.

In addition, check to see if the air filter is dirty and/or blocked. Also, the room temperature might be too low, (below 15.5 C/ 60F) and finally, check to make sure that there is no obstruction to the unit, that might be causing poor airflow circulation.

I hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

My Goldstar dehumidifier model DH304 runs,but fails to pick up any water

Other things that can cause problems: 1.Check to see if the air filter is dirty and/or blocked. 2. The room temperature might be too low, (below 60 degrees Fahrenheit ) 3. Check to make sure that there is no obstruction to the unit that might be causing poor airflow circulation.

When I started my dehumidifier, fan and compressur


There may not be water to catch. It is winter (darn near), at least in the North (USA). I'm in the North East, neither of mine run very often this time of year. You don't say what your setting is ... it shouldn't be lower than 50%.

If you think it is still damp in the space you are concerned about, you can put a fan in the room to move the air around more. It could be that your room is really too big for your machine to actually monitor properly. That was the situation in my case, thus two units + a circulating fan for summer use.

I hope this helps you
