I have a keystone 70b dehumidifier. the hose is attached but won't continuous drain. The bucket keeps filling. When I take the hose off, water comes out so I know there isn't a plug that needs to be...


1st make sure the unit is level , sometimes we forget that it needs to be perfectly level to drain out
2nd this also might be a case where unit runs so long and for so long that it never rests, this might sound funny but its not most units need a cool down period where the internal parts cools off and the fluids run out only when the fan inside shuts off , the humidistat should be set at 70% Rh this should allow a bit of a rest period if not you unit is too small for the task you gave it

Goes on.... humidity % registers 70 but in just a minute or 2 it begis to decline and ends up at Lo which then wont pull water from the air. I know it is humid, some sensor must be getting fouled up.


70% is not what the dehumidifier is removing. It's what it is maintaining. Which is extremely high humidity. To lower the humidity level in the house lower it to 35%. That will remove a large amount of humidity over a fairly short (4 hours) period of time. If you have an analog unit (no LED Screen) set the humidity extraction knob on Maximum, which is 35%.

Keep in mind, dehumidifiers work the opposite of what you think.

MY unit keeps on freezing up no problem with the filter dirty it gave me a problem after 3 months of use . i set it for 60% 50% it freezes up all the time i shut it off let it defrost and same thing all...


I think a part of the problem is that you have the humidity extraction level set to high. 50 to 60% is pretty much the humidity level throughout most of the year. Lowering it to 35%m should make a difference.

If you are using this in a basement application, the temperature at floor level can be 10 degrees cooler than at shoulder level. Most dehumidifiers don't work well at temperatures between 40 & 60 degrees F. Unless, they are Low Temp models designed for 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 can resolve this problem.

If you can access the cooling coils, they may be dirty and need wiping off with a damp rag. Then flow with a dry clean rag to dry them. A light coating of WD40 helps to preserve the coils.

I hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My dehumidifier kenmore model 580.52650 is working fine but turn off and turn back on every three minutes it is this dangerous, any solutions ? THANKS.


I think the problem may be caused by the humidity extraction level you have the unit set on. (i.e. It's set to high). Lower the humidity extraction level to 35%. This will allow the unit to run longer and extract more humidity, before it either shuts off, because the humidity level has been reached or the bucket is full and needs to be emptied.

Don't forget, the air intake filter should be cleaned regularly.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

Hello Our LG HDL 65EL is not working properly. It turns on, the compressor sounds like it want to go, but the fan doesn't turn on. Is the fuse we can replace or a reset button we can switch? Or...


No, there is no fuse or circuit breaker to reset on your unit. However, there are several things r=than can cause the problem, you're experiencing:

The unit's humidity level may be set to high. Lower it to 35%

The air intake filter may be dirty or clogged. Remove the filter and clean it

The compressor coils may need cleaning.

The air ambient air temperature may be to low. Dehumidifiers don't function well between 40 & 60 degrees F.

The unit may need to reset itself. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 12-15 minutes. Plug it back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity level to 35%. Allow the unit to operate in Automatic Timed Mode, rather than continuous mode.

Make sure there is at least a minimum of 12" of clear air space around the entire unit, when in operation.

If none of the above solves the problem, the humidity sensor may have failed. In which case it should be replaced. Or the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant.

I hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

I have a 50 series w/ digital humidity level readout. Recently unit reads the room at 30% humidity so it shuts off unless preferred setting is set to continuous. Can the sensors go bad that measure the...


If the humidity level is at or lower than 30%, the unit won't turn ON, until the reaches 35 - 40%. It's rare for the sensors to go bad. Just keep in mind, the dehumidifier is reading the humidity near the floor, not up at say, chest level. Humidity levels change every season, so this really would not be that unusual. Make sure that your clean the air intake filter regularly. Cleaning and wiping down the coolant coils would be a good idea, too..

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

Our dehumidifier turns on for only a few seconds, then shuts off.


Wendy, it's probably because the humidity level on the unit is set higher than the humidity level in the house. Keep in mind, the humidity level you set the control to, is not the amount extracted from the air. It's the level you want it to maintain. The higher the percentage level, the more humidity stays in the house. The lower the percentage level, the more humidity it removes, until the lower humidity level is reached. Then the humidifier will automatically shut OFF and/or the unit shuts OFF, because the bucket is full. Once it's emptied and replaced, if the unit needs to continue to extract humidity, it will start running again.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Temp and humidity levels are not correct


It sounds as if the temperature sensor probe is touching the cold coil inside. The sensor is located in the incoming airflow, in front of the cold coil. It must not touch the coil. This should be visible with the cover off. You can gently bent the sensor away fron the coil, 1/4-1/2" of clearance is plenty.
