Question about Maytag M7DH65B2A Dehumidifier
After 2+ years of my dehumidifier and small dorm-size freezer being plugged into the same outlet, which is mounted ON the breaker box, I discovered a freezer full of rotten food the other night after the dehumidifier had tripped the outlet at least 5 days earlier. The dehumidifier had been set to 55% humiditiy level. My sump pump never runs because I live in a very dry area, but it's a basement, so to me it's humid, and I am VERY sensetive to ANY humidity. Anyway, I had to reset the outlet, turned the dehumidifier back on, and within 5 minutes the outlet tripped again. So I reset it, etc. again, and it happened a third time. After a few more minutes I noticed burning/hot smell coming from the dehumidifier, so I did NOT turn it back on again, but instead unplugged it. I plugged a lamp into the same outlet along with the freezer and nothing ever tripped, so the dehumidifier is definitely the culprit. What would cause this after only 2 years and how can I prevent it from happening again? I don't run it in the winter, so it hasn't even had 2 full/continuous years of use. I am beyond disappointed and furious that I lost $100+ worth of food, some of which was meant for a bridal shower this weekend. I will likey not have it serviced but will buy a new one instead, but it won't be another Maytag.
There was a recall on these - it depends on the age. I bought mine in 2003 or 2004, and they sent a repairman out to replace a circuit board. Call Maytag to see if yours was in the recall.
