20 Most Recent Zenith zd309 30 pint dehumidifier auto shut-off external drain factory Questions & Answers


Coils can freeze if the room is extremely hot. Usually, though they freeze because the path for air flow is reduced. Check input and output grilles and coils for dirt and dust and clean as necessary.

check to see if the fan is working. low or no air flow will cause it to ice up. may have to remove the front to de-ice. turn the unit off and slowly pour warm water over the coils to thaw. the water should drain right into the bin. also good to clean any dust off of the coils to keep the air flow open.

If you are referring to your humidity setting for an average basement in summer heat between 55%-60% finding 60% to be more ideal.

you are supposed to empty the bucket when its full. it should shut itself off at that point though so maybe the float is stuck. take a closer look

Tip

Dehumidifier is running but no water is in bucket


If you have a dehumidifier that is not producing any water then you are wondering what you need to do to get this thing to work for you. In some cases you may be able to do something and in other situations there may be nothing that you can do.

If you do not hear the compressor running and the unit says that the humidity in the room is higher then the setting, then you have a problem with your dehumidifier.

A few things that can cause this are:

The circuit board relay has gone bad…replacement of this board will often cost more then a new unit. This also is a very common problem with many dehumidification units.

The compressor has failed…if you hear a buzz for a few seconds, every few minutes, then you have a bad compressor or at least bad start components on the compressor. Either way it again is a costly repair.

If the compressor is running and the coils are not getting cold then you have a refrigeration system leak. Recharging or fixing these units is very difficult and is another costly venture compared to the price of a new dehumidifier.

If the compressor is running but the fan is not, this also will cause low water production and continual freezing of the coil.

If the compressor and the fan are running but the coil is totally blocked then you will get no water production. Air needs to be continually moved over the cold coil to get the water out of the air.

If nothing is running, then you may also have a control board failure. Or the humidity sensor or humidistat has gone bad which tells the machine to run. If the sensor says that the humidity is low enough then it will never run.

Also if nothing is running check the float switch or the bucket switch. Many of these switches are very touchy and if you do not have the bucket in place just exactly right it will not trip the switch to allow the unit to run. These switches often are more fragile then they should be and break easily. The good thing is that when available they are easy to replace and relatively inexpensive.

There are some parts available for a few brands, but with the prices for most of the parts that you can replace running anywhere from 40.00 – 80.00 dollars, replacement parts with labor to install them, makes a repair more then the few hundred dollar cost of many of these dehumidifiers.

As you can see there are quite a few things that can cause your dehumidifier not to work. Systematically go through the list and eliminate things to get to the bottom of the issue causing your problem and then decide if it is worth spending the money to try to fix the old unit. Only you can make that decision.

For the others who follow

I have the same model, same problem on a 2 year old purchase made in 2014. This unit has a pump (and a hose) to drain the condensate.

The pump light started blinking about a week ago, turning cycling power worked for a while, until pumping stopped altogether.

After investigating:
-the hoses are not blocked but there was some algal growth in the tray which I cleaned
-the pump no longer pumps.
-my favorite parts suppliers and other on-line sources have no record of the model/parts etc.
-Called "whirlpool" consumer line in manual
-Whirlpool has been purchased by Garrison and that company has no parts for this discontinued model but did provide a phone number for the pump 800-799-0991. Unfortunately the cost of this small solenoid pump is $74.

I will drain the condensate via gravity to a floor drain as I don't see spending that much for something that broke so quickly and appeared poorly made..

  1. Check that the filter in the unit is clean.
  2. Check that the room temperature is above 41 degrees.
  3. Check that the humidity isn't set too low, recommended humidity is 45~50%
  4. Make sure that the unit has plenty of space all around to allow for sufficient air circulation.
