Turn the Master ON/Off Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Remove the air intake filter and clean it. Allow it to thoroughly dry, before reinstalling it. Once the filter is thoroughly dry, reinstall it, plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity level at 35% and allow the unit to run as you normally would. The beating should have stopped, since you cleaned the filter. Be sure to maintain at least 2 feet of clear air space around the dehumidifier.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Check the float valve in the top of the bucket. It may be stuck in the UP position. If that the case, jiggle the float valve arm to get it to return to the DOWN position. That should solve the problem.

As I tell all the folks who report the same problem you have. There are 5 basic, but solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 and 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder
in basement applications level. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have a comfort air dehumidifier that does seem too effective. also theer is a tube on top of the water bucket? whats that for?


That's the water collection tube, that drains water into the bucket. What's the other other problem that makes it seem, that the dehumidifier is not to effective?

The dehumidifier is not collecting water in the basket. I have cleand the filter and even taken off the front cover to clean inside. Any other ideas to get this back working?


The lack of water in the bucket, may be a result of the humidity setting on the unit being to high. Try setting the level at 45% or lower. Also, be sure there's adequate air flow around the unit itself. It should remain a minimum of 12' from a wall or furniture. 24" is better.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, try this at home test. Place the unit in the bathroom, turn it ON and set the level as low as possible. Turn the shower ON hot enough to generate steam. Do not turn ON the bathroom's exhaust fan. As you exit the bathroom, close the door. Wait 15 to 20 minutes, before returning to the bathroom. When you do, turn the shower OFF and allow the unit to run for several more minutes. Then check the bucket for water. If there is any sign of water in it, it's working fine. It was probably a case of the humidity level being set to high the first time.

If there was no water in the bucket, the refrigerant gas in the cooling coils and the compressor may need recharging.

Hope this helped your to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Compressor seems to be overheating although top is cool. Continues to run but doesn't collect water. Fan is working. Can't locate model number.


If the compressor motor is overheating, it's usually a result of low refrigerant gas in the cooling coils. Recharging is an option, if you can find a shop that will do it.

Was full - turned off to empty - replaced empty bucket, won'r turn back on and keeps beeping full


Try reinserting the bucket, making sure that it's positioned properly. So that the safety switch is engaged. If that still doesn't solve the problem. Turn the MASTER ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Wait 12 - 15 minutes and plug the unit back in. Turn the MASTER ON/OFF Switch to ON and hopefully, if the bucket is positioned properly, the unit will have reset itself.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem. Please let me know.
