If you haven't already, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Obviously, if you're getting a burning odor from the dehumidifier, something is terribly wrong. Since there are no belts on the motor or fan of the unit, the compressor may have burned up. In which case, the cost of repairs would almost or be equal to, the cost of a new unit.

I'm sorry, I wish I had better news for you.

Does not collect water .. fan runs


If it is not blowing out air from front grill then fan is burned out and needs replacing - $50 do-it-yourself (lots of disassembly) $100 for them to do it. Is it still in warranty? (1-2 years for fan/sensors))

My crosley dehum. acted the same way. It turned out to be a bad defrost thermostat on the evaporator coil.
