There are 5 basic, but solvable reason for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2. However, running to dehumidifiers in the same proximity may be the problem. ON is doing the lion's share of humidity extraction, leaving little or nothing for the other to extract.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder
level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Most counties and cities have a plan for the disposal of old dehumidifiers, AC units, refrigerators, etc.
This is because of the Freon gas that may still be in the compressor. Contact your local officials about their disposal site.

I hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

If the machine's compressor runs when you switch it on, then turn the machine on maximum and let it run for an hour or so. Then check the coils in the back with your hand. If they are not getting cold at all, then there is a significant problem with the refrigeration process in the unit. It may have developed a leak and allowed your refrigerant gas to escape, or there may be another internal problem with the compressor. Either way you would need to have it serviced by a fridge technician, or more likely just replaced with a whole new unit since both options can potentially cost about the same.

If the unit runs normally and the coils are getting cold, then make sure they are not totally icing up which will impede the unit's performance. If your dehumidifier is freezing up then that probably means the unit itself is actually working well, and you probably just have the unit turned up too high for the conditions.

Try turning down the setting on the unit so that it cycles on and off every few hours and does not run continuously.

Also try using some warm soapy water to clean off any dust or oily residue from the cooling coils in the rear of the unit. Remember to also clean the air intake filter while you are at it.

The ambient temperature in the room may also be a bit too low, so you can try adding some heat to the room if necessary. A dehumidifier will not work properly if the ambient air temperature is too low. Basically, the warmer and more humid the room is, the better they work. Since warm air rises, you can even try lifting the unit higher up off the cold floor onto a bench or table where the air is warmer.

Sometimes the drain tube leading to the bucket is clogged. You can often clean this out by inserting the pointy end of a long heavy duty plastic zip tie and jiggling it around a bit. Do not insert anything metal or sharp into the tube or you may damage it.

Without knowing which model number you have, I can't point you in the right direction. However, there ares some other causes, that you should address.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to high. Lower it to 35%.

2. Air flow obstruction. Maintain at least 12' of clear air space around the entire unit.

3. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.

The unit freezing up doesn't surprise me at all. If the temp in your room is 60 degrees then the temperature of the air will be around 40 degrees and the coil is about 20 degrees. Your expecting to much, the tempature is to cold to work properly.

Haier is a Chinese home electronics and domestic appliance manufacturer headquartered in the Qingdao district of the city of Shandong. The company makes a range of home dehumidifiers that are designed to reduce the amount of airborne moisture in a room. If you have problems getting your Haier dehumidifier to start, you can run through a few simple troubleshooting steps to try and resolve the problem.


Instructions

1.Verify that the dehumidifier is plugged in and the outlet is getting power. Make sure the dehumidifier is turned on. Plug in a lamp to test the power supply; if it does not light up, make sure the fuse or breaker has not been tripped.

2.Pull the water bucket from the front of the dehumidifier and empty its contents. The dehumidifier will stop working to prevent the bucket from overflowing. Replace the bucket and wait about three minutes before starting the dehumidifier again.

3. Make sure that air can circulate around the dehumidifier and that the filter is clean. Curtains, blinds and furniture can limit the amount of air going into the machine and cause it to stop. Place the dehumidifier away from any obstructions. Pull the filter from the back of the machine and clean it with a vacuum.

4.Unplug the dehumidifier and let it stand for a few minutes. Plug it back in and try switching it on again. This will allow the machine to reset itself.

5.Contact Haier for repairs. If these steps fail to solve the problem, you may need to repair or replace your dehumidifier. You may be entitled to free repair or replacement if your Haier appliance is within its warranty period.

Hope it helped

Hello,
simply remove the drain pan or bucket, pour out the water in it if any and replace the drain pan or bucket back into the unit. The sensor full light should go off and the unit should turn on.
If the unit still doesn't turn off even after emptying the drain pan or bucket, remove the power cord from the wall. Leave the unit unplugged for about 1hour, then plug it back into the wall and it should turn on.
If the above doesn't work, please let me know for further directions/diagnosis.
Good luck.

The reason the light cam of the first time was because the either the attached hose is clogged or the hose connection of the unit is clogged. When this happens, the bucket full light comes ON, because of the clog or the bucket was not reinstalled properly and didn't trip the bucket, safety removal, trigger switch. Be sure the bucket is reinstalled so the the Top and Bottom fit squarely into the bucket holder.

Hopefully, your husband can undo what he's already done, clear the clogs and the unit may run again, as it should.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Kate, There are several basic things that can cuse the problem you seem to be having. At least you're doing the steamy bathroom test. You must have read one of my relies to someone else.Keep in mind, the lower the humidity extraction percentage or number, the more humidity it will take out of the air.

1. The air intake filter is dirty or clogged.

2. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32%.

3. Obstructed air flow around the unit. You must maintain a minimum of 12" clear air space around the entire unit, while in operation.

4. The ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 & 60 degrees F. This is true in basement applications and the unit will not function properly. Unless it's a Low Temperature unit. Placing it up off the floor on a sturdy table or counter top that can adequately hold the weight of the unit, plus a full bucket of water, usually solves that problem.

Worse case scenario, the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas (R14). But, that doesn't happen that often.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks
