Question about Goldstar DH304 Dehumidifier
Fred, here is an in home test, that will determine whether your unit is working properly or not.
Please the unit in the bathroom, plug it in, turn it ON and set the humidity level at the LOWEST setting. Turn the shower On hot enough to generate steam. Do Not turn the bathroom's exhaust fan ON and make sure any window(s) is closed. As you exit the bathroom, close the door. Wait 15 to 20 minutes before reentering the bathroom. Then turn the shower OFF and allow the unit to run for 5 more minutes. Then, check the water collection bucket for any signs of water. If you find water in it, it's working as it should. It may simply have been a case that the humidity extraction level was originally set to high.
If you found no signs of water in the bucket, the humidity sensor in the unit may have failed or the compressor is low on refrigerant. Either one is repairable, but the cost of troubleshooting it, finding the part and the time repair it, may exceed the cost of a new unit. As, yours is a 4 years old unit.
Hope this helpd you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
