There are 5 basic, but solvable reason for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2. (# 2, you have already taken care of)

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If you have a manually
controlled unit, turn the knob to Maximum

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 application . 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.

Remove the tank and locate the switch and 'teeter' (that the tank sits on). Make sure the tank is able to move when filled. You will have to adjust the position of the switch to allow the filled (teetered) tank to shut the device off.

Is it possible for you to drain the water into a nearby floor drain using a hose?

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Most communities have either private or charitable organizations that take old appliances and computers. I took an old window air conditioner and they took it with no prep.

The largest culprits for freeze up are dirty filter, dirty coil behind filter....and on certain occasions, low on freon.

The DH304Y5 dehumidifier is not subject to any recalls at this time.

I hope this helps.

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

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

It sounds like the fan may not be operating or the air path is plugged up. I think what is happening is you are running the compressor on high head causing it the thermal relay to drop out.

The compressor in your Goldstar dehumidifier may be low on Freon. If moisture from the air cannot be condensed, no condensate will drain into the bucket

Give it a good cleaning before you do anything else. If the fins or filter are dirty, you won't get good service from it. Make sure the drain path is open.

First, be sure that the water collection bucket is installed properly and is making contact with the bucket safety removal switch that is located on the rear wall of the bucket holder. In addition, while you have the bucket out, check the inside of the bucket for a float valve. It may be stuck in the UP position. In which case, it will not turn ON. When reinstalling the bucket, be sure that it fit's "squarely" into the bucket holder from top to bottom. When installed properly, the bottom of the bucket will not tilt down at all and make good contact with the safety removal switch.

In addition, you may want to check the outlet it's plugged into, to be sure there's power to the outlet and ultimately to the dehumidifier.

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