Honeywell HDH-131 is sucking up a it of water but it takes forever. Cold air blowing out pretty hard. I think the unit became de-programmed and I can't find my manual to reset it.

Why is it blowing cold air?


A dehumidifier should blow cold air Carole. It takes in warm moist air, chills it, condenses the water out of the air and returns it chilled and dry to the room. That is the function of a dehumidifier. They often have the function of an air conditioner and blow cold air out of one outlet into the room and hot air out of the window via a venting hose. If yours is just a dehumidifier, it is working as designed

What were your expecting a dehumidifier to do?

My dehumidier blows very hot air while working. Makes it hotter than it was before starting. Like a furnace.


It is normal for a dehumidifier to discharge warm air. A dehumidifier is really an air conditioner - a fan blows humid room air across a cold fin coil that causes the moisture to condense on it and drip into a container - thus cooling AND dehumidifying the air. The cool air is blown over the warm coil and discharged out the back. A dehumidifier WILL normally increase the temperature of the room it is in.
You can do the same thing with sitting an A/C unit on a stool in a room. Room air will be drawn in, cold air will come out the front, hot air out the back and water will drip on the floor. And, the room will get hotter, due to what is called "heat of compression" even though you're running an A/C unit.

Unit is running & blowing cold air. Unit is not sucking any moisture out of the air.


There are 5 basic, but solvable reason for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If you have a manually
controlled unit, set the knob on Maximum.

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.

I hope this helped you.

The dehumidifier is running, sucking air in at the back and blowing out through the front grill, but over a number of days is not actually collecting any water in the water tray.


The quantity of water depends on the relative humidity in YOUR air.You may need to have the unit checked to see that the mechanical portion is working....

My soleus CFM40 has stopped dehumidifying. Just blows cold air. I think the heat element that dries the air stopped working. Do yo agree?

Blows cold air,but no condensed water


To condense the water (cold side) the air should be warm.

Sounds like coolant leak or compressor problem; if so, time for new unit.

Is it possible in aircon to used it with no compressor??


Nothing in air conditioning is new. It has been done for many years.

There are three types of "compressorless" refrigeration that I can think of.

1. ) swamp coolers or evaporative coolers - these work on the process of adiabatic saturation in low humidity environments. Evaporating water removes energy from the air, makes it cooler and more humid. This is a win-win when the air is very dry, but the process doesn't work well in humid environments, were water evaporates less readily.

2.) Peltier junction solid state coolers. These are essentially a thermocouple driven in reverse. Conduction between the hot and cold plates is hard to control and at low voltages these devices need a lot of current. These units are not as efficient as mechanical refrigeration.

3.) Absorption refrigeration cycle. In these systems a solution of ammonia in water (or water in a lithium bromide brine) is used. Heating the water (or brine) drives out the ammonia (or water vapor) and takes the place of the compressor in the cycle. This cycle is useful if you have a source of waste heat. You essentially recover the energy in the waste heat to run a refrigeration unit. A few demo units have used solar energy as the heat source, but I don't think this is common
