You may have the humidity level set to high. Usually anything above 50%, will show little results, unless your house is flooded.. Turn the humidity setting to the lowest level that your humidifier has
and give that a try.

The fan runs a lot, because it's designed to almost constantly move the air around. That way, if the humidity level rises above the setting on the dehumidifier, it can sense it and the compressor will turn ON.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Fan always runs, speed doesnt change (low/high), setting humidity level doesnt impact...is this a control board or circuit board issue?


Verify the humidity reading with another device. Perhaps the humidity sensor is dirty or bad.

Another possibility is the switching device that runs the compressor and fan is shorted. If it's a mechanical relay, the contacts may have welded together, or if it's a solid-state relay, it's got a punch-through or meltdown in a device junction. My guess is it's a mechanical relay since you mention it used to click on and off and now you don't hear that. The relay may be on the control board, or it may be mounted separately - I don't have a photo or diagram of the inside of your model available.

Why is it noisy and not pulling water from air?


If you can hear its fan running but it produces no condensate, then it's apparent that either the compressor is not running, or that the humidity setting needs to be lowered. If the compressor simply won't start, then it's time to replace that unit. Compressor or controls repair is far too costly. It's best to put that money into a new dehumidifier. Frigidaire units are highly rated and that's what I would recommend as a replacement.

Simplicity dehumidifier (SDR505R) not working


Danby dehumidifiers are craps - I have been trying to buy an used dehumidifier. I've looked at several for sale on Kijiji and Craigtslist - the majority of them is by Danby - None of them works. Fan and compressor run but no condesation occurs at the coil i.e. no water dripping into the bucket. Solution: scrap it. Refilling the gas costs more than a new dehumidifier. They are not made for refilling like the compressor in a car.

Kenmore 54501 Dehumidifier Problem


Normal 0 When you push the power button, the blower fan comes on. In a few minutes you should hear a second "click"--that is your compressor starting. Do you hear that second click?

Unit runs a lot. Doesn't condense much water. Sometimes fan runs alone, sometimes compressor runs alone.


You may also want to check the coils and make sure they do not have dirt or dust on them. If they are clean you may have an issue with the refrigerant level which will cause the coils not to cool properly. For that you will want to contact LG. There could be an issue with the compressor also. LG backs alot of their models with a 5 year warranty. Contact them and let them know about your issue. Make sure you still have your reciept. Here is their contact number:

It runs but there is no water coming out. We have checked the hose for a blockage. What else could it be?


If the compressor is running but no air is blowing out, then your fan motor is shot. If the fan is blowing air but you don't hear the click and vibration when you turn it on, then your compressor needs replacing. Those are the most likely culprits.

Haier HDN455 dehumidifier fan runs continuously but not compressor


First ! you are trying to use this dehum in cold weather conditions. this time of the year there is little humidity in the air. best conditions for the dehum to work will be when the temp. is 65 degrees or high, and the humidity is 60% or higher. if you don't trust what I said then take it to sears to be checked out.

Running but not collecting water...


Sorry to be vague in advance. I am a bit confused as to the compressor seems to be running bit. If the unit is on you should hear the compressor making a continuous noise. What you have described over a relay going click every fifteen secs could be the compressor overload / relay. If it is then the compressor is trying to start hence the dimming lights. Either way I would suggest one of two scenarios either the compressor is faulty or cannot start due to the relay or the unit is short of gas. Eiher way not a good scenario. I would suggest a tech to confirm or spend the money towards a new unit. Hope this helps.
