It shouldn't run continuously for 45 minutes at steady state.

Choose a different setting so that it goes off and on, running no more than 5-10 minutes at a time.

If you are turning it on for the first time in a very humid environment you may want to approach optimal humidity slowly. But once there, it should cycle on and off and not freeze up.

How do I remove the grille?

So it is a Kenmore?

Cleaning coils is and engineer issue not a consumer task normally. Consumers usually just clean the inlet or outlet filters which should protect the coils from dust build up.

I did mind a few years ago. It involves removing lots of screws and panels. Do it next to a table and keep everything in the order you take it apart. Take pictures with your cellphone.

Beware of the coil fins as they are like razors.

Coils on the dehimidifier are dirty resricting air flow how do I get ti apart to clean the coils

Make sure you unplug the unit first. there should be screws at the base, in the back, or underneath the humidifier. Once you remove all the screws the cover should come off as one big piece. Careful when removing the cover, however, as there may be ground wires attached to it . Usually if you vacuum out the inside godd and around the copils that may help with performance. You can also buy a special acid that you can spray on and rinse off with water that removes alot of residue.
Also, Don't forget to pull the plug, shut the water valve and drain the unit. A unit with a water reservoir should be drained and cleaned with white vinegar, a mix of one part chlorine bleach to eight parts water or muriatic acid. Mist-type humidifiers also require regular cleaning to remove mineral deposits.

Does not dehumidify. motor runs. no watercomes out of the drainage tube.

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. First you have to be sure the compressor is running if not then there is probably nothing you can do except replace the unit. If the compressor is running then you will have to take the unit apart and clean the evaporater coil inside the unit if this gets clogged with dirt and pet hair it will not allow the water to condensate on the coil.

How do I clean the dehumidifier?

A dehumidifier works just the way an air conditioner works but in a reverse manner. If you encounter a problem with your dehumidifier then it would be repaired the same way you would repair an air conditioner. As such a dehumidifier does not require much cleaning apart from changing the filter. When the filter and coils of the dehumidifier are choked with dirt, it may not pull out moisture from the air properly. The efficiency of the dehumidifier gets decreased and the only solution is, to clean it thoroughly. In order to assist you with the cleaning procedure of a dehumidifier, following are a few tips:
  1. Remove the water tank/container and clean it after draining the water. Depending on the usage the container must be cleaned regularly.

  2. Cleaning or changing the filter is also important for the main function of ensuring a healthy atmosphere is performed by the filter. Mix some bleach with warm soapy and clean the filter. It will help to get rid of the bacteria, molds and mildew.

  3. Use a vacuum cleaner to clean the evaporative coil/hot coil. Scrub off the dirt using a brush but make sure that you don’t bend the fins while cleaning.

  4. Clean the condenser or the cold coil the same way. If the humidifier is working in a room where the temperature is below 60 degrees Fahrenheit then check the coils whether it is not icing up.

  5. See to it whether the fins are bent or not, if they are bent then straighten them out using a fin comb otherwise it might obstruct the effective working of the dehumidifier.

  6. And yes do not forget to clean the fan blades and other parts of the dehumidifier.

  7. Keeping in mind the humidity level of your room, sets the humidistat of the dehumidifier as keeping it too low or too high may only make the dehumidifier to run longer than necessary.

Also before you start with the work of cleaning the dehumidifier, make sure that it has been unplugged.
