Question about Whirlpool AD70USS Dehumidifier
See if you have a grounded circut in the appliance. Check 1 flat to your volt ohm meter. Connect the other probe from meter to the other flat. And you should get a reading of resistance. Next connect 1 probe to the flat then the other to ground. A reading - indicates nothing until the next step. Now try the other flat to the ground?
1 Of these flats are connected to the nutural and possible feed through or back to ground in the appliance. The other one though should not read to ground. If you get a ground reading on both flat of the plug in someting is together that should not be.
If you dont get a readign try plugging in at a different outlet. A circut that has too much load will cause circut breakes to over heat and trip.
If it runs at a different outlet make sure its on a different breaker. If its on the same breaker it will probably start acting up again.
DOes this help? If so please rate me as high as possible If not please restate your problem to help me understand it better. Thnaks for using Fixya and Good Luck.

be very careful - with the unit unplugged - try shorting the capacitor with an insulated screwdriver. if you get a healthy spark - the cap is probably ok. if you don't replace the cap. the cap is used in the motor's start winding.

I would try to find an outlet on another circuit to see if maybe the problem is definately your dehumidifier, if it trips again then you know it is...If not then call an electrician..
