If it's still available (many of the Fedders parts aren't,) more than likely you can find it at Appliance Factory Parts.

Good luck. I hope this helps you.

My Haier dehumidifier has the bucket full light on and won't reset. It's only a month old. I tried unplugging, resetting and i'ts still stuck on bucket full. Any ideas on how

sorry to say but the bucket level sensors on these tend to be a bit tricky , it seems theres two possible holes the piviot point for float can go in , only one is correct for sensor to hit right , but both allow float to swing , and there not marked either

The float is broken

If all you need is the Styrofoam float, you're in business, If it's the entire float arm you're not so lucky.

See ref numbers

Model 53701 purchased 2003. Hardly used. Has been on working fine. Shut it off to empty, pressed power to turn back on, & Nothing. Dead. It is not the plug Help barb

Barb, if thee water collection bucket is not properly installed or the float valve in the top of the bucket is stuck in the UP position, the unit will not turn back ON.

Remove the bucket, check the float valve's position (if it's stuck in the UP position, jiggle the arm of the float valve to make ir return to the DOWN position). When reinstalling the bucket, be sure it fits "squarely" from top to bottom into the holder, so the it will make contact with bucket safety removal switch. It should not tilt down at the bottom at all.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

The drawer is empty of water but the signal says 'full'. Is there a broken part? Thank you, Eileen

No, probably not. Either the float valve in the top of the bucket (drawer) is stuck in the 'UP' position or the bucket wasn't installed properly.

For the stuck float valve. Remove the bucket and look in the right or left corner of the bucket for the float valve. If it's stuck in the 'UP' position, jiggle the handle to make it return to the 'DOWN' position.

When reinstalling the bucket into it's holder (whether it had a float valve or not), be sure that it fits "squarely" from top to bottom into the holder. It should not tilt down at the bottom. The bucket must make firm contact with the bucket safety removal switch inside the holder.

Hope this helps you to troubles shoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have a Fedders dehumidifier Model A7DH45B2A REV-A. The nipple on the float broke off. Where can I buy a float? Do you have one? How much is it?

Although Fedders, as you knew it is no longer in business, some parts are still available.

Here is a link, with an explodes view of your model's parts.Locate th epart you need and then enter the part number, to see if it's still available. FYI Maytag Dehumidifier parts are interchangeable with Fedders. Fedders made the units for Maytag.

I hope this helps you find what you need.

Need float switch that cuts off dehumidifer when bucket gets full

Without a Model Number or Part Number it's hard to help you. But here are three links, where you can find the float switch, if it's still available. You'll definitely need the Model Number to find anything.

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

The float switch where it pivots wore out i would like to buy a replacement tray if possible

I think what you're looking for is the bucket or tank assembly that has the float valve in it, rather than the tray. In any event, there are not many parts still available for this unit, as it has been discontinued by Fedders. However, they did make the identical unit for Maytag & Whirlpool and you may be able to find interchangeable parts from them.

In the meantime, here is a link to some Fedder's parts that are still available for your model.Which may be helpful in cross referencing the Maytag & Whirlpool models.

Sears Parts Central may be another good source.

Hope this information has helped steer you in the right direction.

My fedder dehumidifier m7dh45b2a makes an annoying noise

This noise is the vibration from the compressor...sometimes things can come loose and magnify the noise...check for loose parts and tighten as needed...
The compressor may also be going bad...

Here is a tip that I wrote to help people to figure out what is going wrong with their dehumidifier2_bing.gif.

Need manual for fedder dehumidifer to hook up drain hose. need to know were drain hose connects.

Pull out the water collection tray. You will see a small pipe (about 1/2" diameter) in the top of the area where the tray came from. This is the "drain" that fills the tray. Connect a hose to this pipe and run the hose to a floor drain if you have one. I used a section from an old garden hose for my unit. There also may be a small opening in the back wall of the dehumidifier to route the hose more aesthetically.

Mine broke recently too, although it's 4 and a half -- also under the 5 year warranty.  Maytag won't honor the warranty claiming that Fedders made it.  Fedders simply won't honor the warranty.  Made in China -- any surprise?  So, now I've got a broken appliance under a warranty that no one will honor.  To make matters worse, no one even fixes Fedders in my area (DC suburbs) and to dispose of it will cost me $40!  I'm thinking of taking it back to Home Depot (where I bought it) and telling them to return it to the manufacturer.  Are there any lawyers out there?  Class action anyone?
