I need a repair part for soleus air dehumidifier model #CFM-40E. I must replace the water bucket overflow switch. Can you help.

    The metal "spring" which engages the on/off overflow switch broke off. I can't see anyway to replace it, and I haven't heard back from Soleus' technical support. Naturally, this happened just one year after the warranty ran out.

    How did you get it apart? Mine stopped working and I tried to take it apart to clean out the insides but 2 of the screws are nonstandard. If I could get it apart and can't get it working, I could send you the switch from mine before I junk it!

My soleus CFM40 has stopped dehumidifying. Just blows cold air. I think the heat element that dries the air stopped working. Do yo agree?

If the room temp is below 60 degree, coils may be frozen in block of ice - see if you can see into grills.

If frozen, unplug and set in tub or over drain.

Check to see that it is not set on CONT (continous) as it will run but with low indoor humidity in winter, not have mosture to extract.

No water in bucket


if you can verify that the compressor motor is actually turning, then the problem is either a freon leak or a worn out compressor. if it is not turning, then the problem is either a damaged motor or motor is not getting voltage--need testing with meter to determine why. cheaper in long run to buy a new unit if bad compressor or motor or freon fill, but a fill may be only temporary if leak persists.
