It is three and a half years old and ices up even at warm temps.


The problem you're having is generally caused by the air intake filter needing to be removed and cleaned and/or the cooling coils need to be cleaned.

I assume you already know how to remove and clean the filter, since you've had the unit for 3 1/2 years, so I won't bore you by addressing that.

The coils can be cleaned with warm water and a mild dish washing detergent using a sponge or rag. Once they have been wiped down, rinsed and dried, apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

Hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a sunbeam 1387 warm mist humidifier. I need to know how to clean scale from the filter. It looks like it can be taken apart. Can it?


Actually, Carol, it shouldn't be necessary to take the unit apart. Mix a 50/50 solution of White Distilled Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank). Pour the solution in and allow it to sit overnight. Then empty the solution and fill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water. Turn the unit ON and allow it to run for 1 hour. Then empty any remaining Distilled Water. Doing all the aforementioned, should have not only cleaned the filter, but also the unit itself. If you use Bottled Distilled Water in the future, rater than tap water, the filter and the plumbing of the unit will stay clean longer and will require less maintenance.

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

I need to know how to clean filter. Lost book


Hello,

follow the below instructions:

Turn off the dehumidifier machine and unplug it from the wall.

Lift the water bucket up and out of the dehumidifier.

Locate the filter located under the compartment that houses the water bucket. Lift the filter straight up and out of the dehumidifier.

Vacuum as much of the visible dirt and debris as possible.

Fill a sink half full with water. Place the filter in the water and allow it to soak for one to two minutes.

Wipe both sides of the filter with a wet sponge to remove any remaining dirt and debris. Rinse the filter with clean water.
Wipe the filter with a dry cloth to remove excess moisture. Allow it to air dry for approximately 30 minutes before inserting it back into the dehumidifier.
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.

Humidifer is not taking out water. Is there a start capacator for the compressor?


This could be one of several things, we are assuming the air is humid. If the fan is not running and the compressor is, replace or repair fan motor. If the compressor is running, the output line from the compressor should be warm, if not you probably have low refrigerant gas, plugged cap tube or a bad compressor. If it is slightly warm check the evaporator portion at the outlet of the cap tube, it should be cold, probably in the 40F range depending on ambient temperature, if not see above.

Goof Luck,

Coils Ice Up and nothing is dehumidified


If the coil is clean, then have a tech check for a low charge. This will cause the coil to freeze up. Humidifers are known to lose gas and owners aren't told this so end up buying new one and scraping the old one. Trust me on this. I have seen this many times. I repair high end machinery as my business.
