20 Most Recent GE AHG40LA Dehumidifier Questions & Answers


For some reason it is overheating and shutting itself off. There is a law that all electronics are supposed to have a point to where it automatically shuts off if it gets too hot from a malfunction or loose connection in the circuit board. It is to protect the consumer. You either need to take it to a tech or get rid of it. Get a new one.

It sounds to me like you have a defective switch. I would recommend that you contact a G.E. dealer with the model and serial number and describe your problem.I can't find the right file right now but I believe thatthis switch is about twenty dollars.Thank you.

a dehumidifier can only remove water from the air that is humid. have you checked the humidity of the room ti see if it is high or low?

In the winter the average room air is sometimes so dry that one have to add water with a humidifier.
did you check if this is not the case?

RH at 70 % seems to me a little excessive you really should be working somewhere around 50 to 56% the fan has to move Air through the system.
I would like to know your room Air temp what is the Air temp comming off the system. what are your parameters.

The only thing you really need to check is that collector coil that the the water is supposed to condense upon, much like the "sweat" on a glass of ice water. If that collector coil is not nice and cold, then your machine needs freon or has some other serious problem.

I am having the same problem with mine and it has started freezing up for no reason. Did you get any answers

First remove the bucket. Easily clean the filter w/warm soapy water either under lightly running water or carefully gently clean w/towel. Tap lightly to remove any excess water. Place filter up to air dry which shouldn't take long. After putting filter back in, press. & hold the clean filter reminder button for at least 3 seconds.
