SOURCE: DE500P Dehumidifier: Does not dehumidify

Locate and touch the cooils located, usually, above the condensate collection pan, ("pail empty"). If the coils are not cold, or cool to the touch, the unit has lost its charge of refrigerant. This would explain why the unit fan is working, but there is no condensate, as there is no coolant (charge) to cool the coils and "pull" the hunidityout of the air.

I contacted the Danby Co. and found out the unit was still under warranty. They gave me the name of a local repair shop who replaced the float sensor "free of charge".
Thank you for your time and interest. If I have another problem later I will be in touch with you.

It sounds like a refrigeration problem might be a leak in the system or the compressor isnt coming on either way its cheaper to replace the dehumidifier. Hope this helps out dehumidifiers are very disposable.

Kenmore Dehumidifier Model Number: 90701 works well but rattles like crazy on carpet with padding in a finished basement. The item is level and is only one day old.


Sometimes dehumidifiers will do this, when the water level in the tank reaches a certain level. My 3 year old LG Dehumidifier does it too. The easy quick fix is to smack both sides of the unit at the same time with open hands. Amazingly, the rattling will stop. At least it does with mine. It has something to do with the unit being on padded carpet.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a new Whirlpool AC model ACQ 128 GPW. It does a super job of cooling but what is the best way to dehumidify without using the cooling system or is this a very poor way to dehumidify? You have...


Dale, my best advice is do not operate the cooling function and the dehumidifier at the same time. The dehumidifier will generate heat, which will cause the AC to have to work harder. It's best to operate them separately. Besides, the AC works somewhat like a dehumidifier, so it's extracting some moisture anyway.

Hope this helped you Dale. Thanks for choosing FixYa, again.
