The air intake filter may be clogged. Cleaning it, may solve the problem, once the unit thaws out. In addition, low refrigerant gas can also cause the unit to ice up. While waiting for the unit to thaw completely, turn the Master On/Off Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. In addition to thawing this unplugged time, may give the unit a chance to reset itself.

Hope this helped you solve the problem.

Our dehumidifier is full of ice, is this normal or an indication of more serious problem. It is 3 1/2 years old and has been in constant use since purchased.


If the room tempature 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 defost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifers work below a room temo of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensot from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.

A large block of ice formed over the entire front where the vent is. Basement temp was apprx 64 degrees F, but this model is supposed to operate at lower temps. Discovered after it was running continuously...


35 is way low; why not 50%?

At the cooler temp you may need to also run a small fan or space heater blowing on it.

It is working, but the setting is too low and the temp in the room is too low

My filter and the inside keep getting caked with ice even though my basement never gets below 55 degrees


this is most likely because of bad air flow... check your fans are working,, check your filters are clean

Iced up coils and will not dehumidify


I did a little digging around on the internet and found out that if the basement (or where ever you have your unit) is in an area where the room temp might dip below 65 degrees the coils may start to become "too efficient" in pulling the moisture/humidity out of the air and it begins to freeze on the coils before it can drip off into the reservoir. The site said to turn off the unit and let it thaw out, then restart it and see if everything works ok after that. If the temperature gets too low you might need to warm up the air in the room/basement before it will operate correctly again/not continue to freeze up. Hope this helps. Mine just did the same thing but we've had some pretty cold weather recently and the basement is fairly cold as well.
