Haier HD N655E


try plugging it into a known live outlet. if this still doesn't work, you need to get inside it. find the enthalpy control - humidity control and see if it turns. a contact inside may stay open preventing the fan and compressor from turning on. check your on-off switch if there is one. to remove the case look in back for hex head screws or on the bottom of the unit

Kenmore dehumidifier - machine runs - compressor ' fan - the black ball when hanging inside everything stops. Lift the balls it runs . Solution? Temperature is around 70 / basement damp. Any suggestions ?...


Check the switch that the ball is attached to. The ball should work such that when it floats to to the top of the bucket the unit shuts off the prevent overflow. The switch may have both normally open (NO) and normally closed (NC) contacts. If this is the case switch the wires from the one set of pins to the other and retest. Usually the plug will have two wires....those kind of switches has three pins. The center pin is usually the common. If this is the case move the plug from the pair on one side to the pair on the other.

My dehumidifier makes squeaking noises when running. How do I stop this?


Hi,

With the unit unplugged, open the cover and check the alignment of the fan. If the fan is stuck or rubbing against the fan cowling, adjust the fan motor's mounting hardware so that the fan turns freely.

Take care.

Not removing water and says tank it full


I just had one giving me the somewhat the same problem. Upon taking it apart I found that the entire inside was filthy. This thing runs in a work area in my basement and sucks up all of the dirty air. When you take the water out of the dirty air you have nothing but the dirt and the water. When you mix those together you get mud which is what clogged everything up in mine.

Dehumidifiers need to be clean on the inside to run properly especially all of the fins on the condensor. You will probably have to take it apart and clean it. Concentrate on the fins and the water collection areas. Dehumidifiers remove heat from the air which causes the humidity to collect on the condensor. As it collects it turns into water droplets. Gravity pulls the water droplets into the water collection areas and that flows to your tank. There is some sort of float in your tank that lets the dehumidifier know it is full and shuts it off with some sort of switch. It does this so it does not just keep running and eventually pour water onto your floor. It sounds like your switch and/or float is stuck. Find the float and switch and manually work them to make certain they are working freely, clean if necessary.

If the dehumidifier does not remove water like it should it is probably not getting good airflow. There are ice sensors on the evaporator that tells the compressor to stop working. However the fan will still run to pull warm air across the ice so that it melts, goes into the water collection area and into your tank. Some of these ice sensors work by measuring air flow. If there is no air flow or very limited air flow the sensor will tell the compressor not to work. The fan will run again to melt the ice so that it melts and is removed. If your condensor is dirty and does not allow the air to flow, this could cause your problem.

Unit has stopped collecting water. Fan & Heater working ok. Been through problem page.None of those. Can you help please?


When it is below freezing outside, humidity drops inside.

Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensor from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - 50% or less.

Dehumidifier Maytag M7DH45B2A Fan Motor


Hi,
It gets a little tricky from here! If it were mine, and with my experience - I would try to measure for power going to the motor, but that may involve more dismantling. Dangerous voltages are likely to be present so don't attempt this if you are not qualified to do so! If there is power going to it, then logically the motor is defective. If there isn't , then it points to the control circuitry. In the former case a new motor might get you going again - if you can find one; if there is no power going to it then the fault lies elsewhere. If you are very lucky it might just be a dead relay on the pcb. Beyond that point I have learned over the years that some things are just not designed to be fixable :-( The pcb may have been made years ago in a factory on the other side of the world and we consumers are just expected to go out and consume a new one dehumidifier.

Hope this helps a little bit. D
