Dehumidifiers are small Air Conditioners that blow their cool air over the condensing coil rather than into the room. They work exactly like an AC unit except they don't blow their warm air outside. If you can install an AC unit of about the same size, you can dehumidify AND cool for the same energy costs. All you should need to do is plug it in and run a hose to a drain or keep its condensate tank emptied. By the way, the water it produces is free of minerals and some people say its good to wash your hair with. (?)

Dehumidifier runs but makes no water


Mine had the same problem: ran, sounded great, no water. Feel the coils. Mine never cooled down - stayed at room temp. No refridgerant left in the coils. It's a gas and can leak out. Expensive to recharge. Get a new one.

Our dehumidifier is about 2 years old. It turns on and sounds fine, but it no longer condenses any moisture from the air. Does the refridgerant need rechargeing?

There are many reasons why a dehumidifier willnot work or collect water.

Airconditioner not working and was told it was the evaporator.


NO!!
The ac will only have issues if your are low on refrigerant,the compressor is bad,or you have a leak in the system or a bad belt.
due to the danger of the refridgerant,id recommend taking it to a shop that specializes in ac work.

I recently obtained a PAC S1000 split airconditioner. I is an older model, perhaps 2005/2006 I have no operating manual for this unit. However having looked at this model on the Internet, it looks slightly...


They will have to be cut and brazed.
Regular solder will not hold.

High temp brazing is required.
Also, it is illegal to cut into a refridgerant system without first recovering the refridgerant. It is also illegal to tap into refridgerant systems without having an EPA certification. It can result in very hefty fines.

I know thats probably not the answer you were hoping for. Howver, I would be neglecting my duties to not inform you of it.

Again, to directly answer your question.
If there are no disconnects on the refridgerant lines, they would have to be cut, and rebrazed.
This requires recoveery of refridgerant, vacume of the system, and an EPA certification.

NewAir AirConditioner on "Dehumidifier" Mode Only


I have a 3 ton a/c system that removes about 5-6 gallons of water from the air per day. Most portable dehumidifiers/air-conditioners rate at approx 1/2 to 3/4 of a ton. Your water output is pretty much normal.
