Have a dehumidifier, Delonghi DE500P. Unit operates but no water collecting in bucket.Level set to 35%. Can freon be added to recharge?


the short answer is yes , but id caution you on the need too first?

first check the basics:
bucket full lite not on (blinking)
filters clean ?
both fan and compressor inside running (sometimes the fan runs but the compressor does not?) listen carefull for them both?
if your unit needs recharged odds are it's not financial feasible to do so , first you have to fix cause of gas leaking out ? what ever that is ? then you need to add service ports and finally you need a gas charge , this would or could cost hundreds of dollars , a entire new unit is less 200 bucks unless you do all this work your self , but id tend to think if you had all the tools and knowledge to do that youd not of asked here in the first place

The full bucket light stays on yet no water is collected


if water full light stays on the compressor wont start and remove water from air , investigate why light stays on ? is bucket really full? is sensor knocked out of its fragile holder ? is bucket all the way inside machine so that sensor is connected ?

The dehuidifier has started leaking water out of the bottom of the unit. Water bucket is correctly installed.


Hi,
This is usually caused because of dirt buildup where the water runs out into the bucket...
Find the little tube or spout that runs the water into the bucket... then use a small toothpick or canned air to clean it out and get the water flowing out of it again...

Doesn't collect water in bucket but runs all the


There are 5 basic things that can cause this problem. All are solvable.

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, remove and 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 F. Dehumidifiers do not work
well between those temperatures (Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
basement applications, where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder 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 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.

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

My Goldstar dehumidifier model DH304 runs,but fails to pick up any water


If the room air is less than the set air, then there is no water in the bucket, because there is almost no humidity in the air. If it is winter, there is likely not enough humidity in the air to have water collect in the bucket. A dehumidifier will only pick up humidity out of warm air. If you are running a dehumidifier in your basement in the winter, the room may be damp, but too cold for the dehumidifier to pull out the humidity. Try running the unit in the bathroom after having a hot shower without the bathroom fan on. If working correctly the unit should draw water.

Other things that can cause problems: 1.Check to see if the air filter is dirty and/or blocked. 2. The room temperature might be too low, (below 60 degrees Fahrenheit ) 3. Check to make sure that there is no obstruction to the unit that might be causing poor airflow circulation.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem.

My dehumiderfier runs all day but never has any water in the bucket, what can I do?


It is likely that the unit has lost it's refrigerant charge. IT can be recharged but will require a servicing fitting be braised into the system and also finding where the leak is. It is likely that the repair will exceed the cost of a replacement.

Hi

You need to check that the bucket is clean and that the sensor for the water level in the bucket is clean.

An old toothbrush and some warm soapy water can sometimes achieve a great result.

Failing this you may need a new sensor, be careful and either draw or photo the old wiring route with your cell phone to make it easier to fit the new sensor

Hope this helps
