Goldstar DH5010B Dehumidifier - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


The water may be condensation dripping in an area where the catch components are not able to catch it. The largest line that exits the cold coil and ends at the compressor should be insulated without any tubing showing all the way back to the compressor, deficits in the insulation (even small ones) could cause condensation to form and drip.

Cindy, all dehumidifier tanks are plastic. If they weren't they'd rust. If you want to replace it, you're looking for Part # 48380A20052. You can find it at the following link. Just be more careful, removing and reinstalling it.

There are 4 basic, but solvable reason for what you described. Before undertaking any of them, Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Allow the unit to thaw completely.

1. 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.

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

3. 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.

4. 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 defrost 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 trouble shoot and solve the problem.

Most dehumidifiers have a "Frost Guard" mounted on the condensor coil. If frost accumulates on the condensor coil the frost guard turns the compressor off until the frost melts, then comes back on again. For the dehumidifier to work properly, the surrounding (ambient), temperature must be higher than 65 degress. This temperature allows the moisture in the air to condense on the coils and drip into the reservoir without freezing up on the condensor coil. Also, if the humidity is too low, (below 45%), the same condition will occur. So it will help to keep the parameters in mind when you have this issue.

Thank you for your allowing me to advise you on this issue.

I can't hear YOUR dehumidifier and can't tell if it's out of the ordinary, but dehumidifiers have all the same internal parts as a refrigerator with the addition of a fan to blow air through the coils to keep them from freezing up. They do tend to be a bit noisy.

any appliance that trips the fuse or breaker should not be tried to use by homeowner this is a fire hazzard as an electric short is a dangerous situation to have in any home , replace unit ! ck with mfg for recalls first and warrentys as well then contact your power company sometimes they give rebates for appliance upgrades but they require old ones back in order to pay u money on them

Goldstar... | Answered on Oct 23, 2014 | 150 views


unplug and wait a few minutes then reconnect to power to clear buttons not working , then ck filter to see that its not clogged use a flashlight to view inside to see if a heavy coating of dust exists iniside case , if so you might be able to save it if you unplug and remove case to access inside and clean out with vacuume hose coils are most important to get clean
