From above 40 degrees up to 93 degrees is pretty much the standard.

ECOAIR Dehumifier


That appears to be a subjective measurement. Does it cycle off or does it continue to run. What is and was the relative humidity. What was and is the temperature. Ask yourself the above questions and you may get your answer. If it is cycling it is at setpoint. If the room is dryer there is less to remove. The temperature effects the rate of water removal.

Why does my dehumidifier run al the time ,i have the humidity set at 45 and when the room temperaturegoes down to 55 it keeps running.


The 45% setting is too low and the setting is never satisfied, so the unit keeps running to try and reach 45%. Try setting to 50 or 55, this is a very comfortable range. I was not clear on the room temperature being at 55 degrees. Is this what your thermostat is set to or is this the actual room temperature. Brrrrrrrrrrrr

Does not collect water in bucket but runs all the time


Does it have a filter?

"
It may be that the humidity level or temperature in the room where your dehumidifier is located is too low.

When the outdoor temperature is below 50 F, the indoor air will be dry even when the air inside is warm, therefore when it's cold outside the dehumidifier may collect little or no water.

Air conditioners will also remove moisture from the room, even if it's hot and humid outside, resulting in little or no moisture collecting in the dehumidifier bucket.

Some dehumidifiers have a deicer which turns off the compressor but keeps the fan running. When the compressor is off, moisture is not removed from the air. The deicer turns off the compressor when the room temperature is cold.

Some dehumidifiers do not have a deicer. If the room temperature is low enough, ice may form on the evaporator coil. The ice prevents the dehumidifier from removing and collecting water. If ice forms on coils, unplug dehumidifier until ice melts and room temperature rises."

Coils freeze up


If your dehumidifier is freezing up then that probably means it is actually working well. The humidity level in the room is probably just relatively low and you probably have the unit turned up too high for the conditions.

Try turning down the setting on the unit so that it cycles on and off every few hours and does not run continuously.

Also try using some warm soapy water to clean off any dust or oily residue from the cooling coils in the rear of the unit. Remember to also clean the air intake filter while you are at it.

The ambient temperature in the room may also be a bit too low, so you can try adding some heat to the room if necessary. A dehumidifier will not work properly if the ambient air temperature is too low. Basically, the warmer and more humid the room is, the better they work.Since warm air rises, you can even try lifting the unit higher up off the cold floor onto a bench or table where the air is warmer.

Why is my dehumidifier icing up.


The room temperature is probably too cold, or there's poor airflow
Here's some info that should help you figure out what's causing the problem:

If the evaporator coil is frosting completely and evenly, the most common cause is that the room temperature is too cold. Most dehumidifiers are not meant to be used when the room temperature drops much below 70°F and certainly not below 65°F (depending on humidity). There are however some models called "basement" dehumidifiers which are.

Another possible cause on standard models is poor air flow through the unit. If the fan motor is not turning fast enough (or at all) or the evaporator, condenser or filter (if used) being plugged can also cause this symptom .

I have a dehumidifier (Emerson I believe - sorry don't have the model # right now) in a very cool basement (55-60 degeres). When I turn it on the coil quickly frosts up as expected and a while later the...


Dehumdifiers work by cooling a coil below the dew point temperature of the ambient air. When this happens frost or water will form on the coil. Most room dehumidifiers work with the room temperature above 65 deg F. It works well when the temperature of the room is 65 deg F or higher. But when the temp is below 65, it won't work because the coil does not reach the dew point.

There are cold temperature dehumidifiers that are designed to work in colder environments such as basements. They can work in a environment as cold as 40 deg F. Check your owners manual to see what type of humidifier you have to see what is the minimum operating temperature for you unit. Hope this helps you.

Dehumdifier not collecting water.


It may be that the humidity level or temperature in the room where your dehumidifier is located is too low.

When the outdoor temperature is below 50 F, the indoor air will be dry even when the air inside is warm, therefore when it's cold outside the dehumidifier may collect little or no water.

Air conditioners will also remove moisture from the room, even if it's hot and humid outside, resulting in little or no moisture collecting in the dehumidifier bucket.

Some dehumidifiers have a deicer which turns off the compressor but keeps the fan running. When the compressor is off, moisture is not removed from the air. The deicer turns off the compressor when the room temperature is cold.

Some dehumidifiers do not have a deicer. If the room temperature is low enough, ice may form on the evaporator coil. The ice prevents the dehumidifier from removing and collecting water. If ice forms on coils, unplug dehumidifier until ice melts and room temperature rises.

The filter (on some models) may be dirty or clogged. If so, clean the filter. For instructions on cleaning the filter.

I hope this help to solve, if this answer solve it, remember to rate it. Good luck.

Just wanna know how to set the temperature on it


dehumidifiers do not have a temperature control, rather, they have a humidity control. usually you set the humidity control to go off when the level of moisture in the room reaches normal (approx. 25-35% winter;38-55% summer). Best way is to run it at full on for 1 to 4 days (until you know the moisture level is how you want it), then turn the knob until the unit goes off . This will be the ideal setting.

Unit comes on compresor and fan run but not collect much water


If the room temperature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
I out mine over the floor drain.
Turn off and it will defrost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifiers work below a room temp of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensor from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.

Dehumidifier throws off hot air making the room very warm. Is that normal?


Yes! A dehumidifier is an entire AC system in one box. First the air passes thru a very cold coil causing moisture in the air to condense and run away. Then the air is re-heated thru a hot coil (the other half of the AC) and blown back into the room. The net result MUST be a net increase in temperature because of the heat added by the mechanical process.
