Why does Frigidaire dehumidifier LAD704DUL has ice on the coils?


Hello Friend, thank you for your question!

I see that you have frost accumulating on the coils of your Frigidaire dehumidifier, LAD704DUL. Typically frost appears on coils either because your dehumidifier has been turned on recently or the room temperature is too low. Sometimes this is normal due to refrigerant rushing through the coils and usually it disappears within 60 minutes. However, if your dehumidifier is not removing moisture, then at this point your dehumidifier may possibly been experiencing a sealed system issue. Is your appliance still in warranty? If so, you might want to reach out directly to the manufacturer to determine the coverage on your dehumidifier and the procedures to any potential remedy in that regard. Hope this helps! - Z

Does not collect water in bucket but runs all the time


Does it have a filter?
http://whirlpool.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/953

also:

"
It may be that the humidity level or temperature in the room where your dehumidifier is located is too low.

When the outdoor temperature is below 50 F, the indoor air will be dry even when the air inside is warm, therefore when it's cold outside the dehumidifier may collect little or no water.

Air conditioners will also remove moisture from the room, even if it's hot and humid outside, resulting in little or no moisture collecting in the dehumidifier bucket.

Some dehumidifiers have a deicer which turns off the compressor but keeps the fan running. When the compressor is off, moisture is not removed from the air. The deicer turns off the compressor when the room temperature is cold.

Some dehumidifiers do not have a deicer. If the room temperature is low enough, ice may form on the evaporator coil. The ice prevents the dehumidifier from removing and collecting water. If ice forms on coils, unplug dehumidifier until ice melts and room temperature rises."

Need a repair shop in the baltimore area to look at my dehumidifier runs but wont pull water


It's cold outside. If the temperature is too low, the cold coils will just frost up and you won't get much water 'pulled'.
Check to see if the cold coils actually are getting cold when the unit is running and the control is set to cause the compressor to work-not just the fan.
If the coils are cold and full of frost or ice, the room is too cold for the dehumidifier to work. You'll have to raise the temperature of the room or wait for warmer weather.
If the coils never get cold, the compressor might be bad or the unit might have lost its freon.
I wonder, though, if it's just too cool and dry right now for a dehumidifier to be pulling more moisture out of the air.
Hope this helps!

The filter (on some models) may be dirty or clogged. If so, clean the filter. For instructions on cleaning the filter.

I hope this help to solve, if this answer solve it, remember to rate it. Good luck.

My dehu has frost on coils most of the the


if the room air is cooler than the dehumidifier then they will frost over. normally frosting over means loss of freon but because it is a closed system there probably isn't. if the air's moisture level [humidity] is low then don't even run the machine.

Top of dehumidifier is very hot to the touch, filter is clean don't know what to do, afraid to put it on in case of fire.


Are you running it in high ambient temperatures?
Can you see any condensate(water) on the coil?
It may be that it is running above it's temperature range. A dehumidifier has two coils(radiators if you like). One gets cold, the other gets hot. The first one renoves the moisture from the air, this is the evaporator and is cold. The heat taken from the air is absorbed into the refrigerant and is given back to the air when it passes through th other coil, the condensor which is hot. The refrigeration circuit itself produces heat. This heat plus the heat absorbed from the air has to be got rid of. If the ambient temperature is high, the condensor will have trouble getting rid of the heat from the circuit. This can cause the case to feel hot to the touch. Assuming you don't have a refrigeration leak, it may not be worth running the unit if it is not removing moisture from the air. Is any water being dropped into the bucket? If it isn't, all you are doing is wasting electricity.

Check the coils at the back of the dehumidifier to see if there is any frost buildup on it. If there is, turn off the machine for a while until the room warms up and melts off the frost. The machine works by condensing the moisture in the air over these coils, so if the coils are frosted over, or are not cold enough, the moisture cannot condense. If the coils are not cold enough, you may want to get it refilled with refrigerant. You will need to take it in for servicing in this case.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Most dehumidifiers have a "Frost Guard" mounted on the condensor coil. If frost accumulates on the condensor coil the frost guard turns the compressor off until the frost melts, then comes back on again. For the dehumidifier to work properly, the surrounding (ambient), temperature must be higher than 65 degress. This temperature allows the moisture in the air to condense on the coils and drip into the reservoir without freezing up on the condensor coil. Also, if the humidity is too low, (below 45%), the same condition will occur. So it will help to keep the parameters in mind when you have this issue.

Thank you for your allowing me to advise you on this issue.
