What is the specific problem? Is no water being collected by the dehumidifier or do you have another issue?

Make sure that the dehumidifier is in a room in the operating temperature range (at or above 44 degrees F). Make sure that the room door and windows are closed and that the room is not larger than 2200 square feet. Make sure that the collection bucket not full and is properly seated in the dehumidifier. Check and clean the air filter on the dehumidifier. (Vacuum the filter or rinse under running water three times. Then wait until dry to replace it in the dehumidifier.) Look at the coils of the dehumidifier. If you have ice on the coils, defrost the unit (turn off, unplug and wait for it to melt). If the ice reforms quickly, you may have a leak in the coolant system. Then the unit needs repair.

Next make sure that you have good air flow around the dehumidifier and that the desired humidity set point is lower than the humidity of the room.

I lost the instructions and want to set up a direct drain, however, I don't remember what settings are what...ie fan, the hour glass thing, or how to set the house temperature...help!


Here is a link to the Owner's Manual for your model dehumidifier. You can download and print the manual for future reference. I would encourage you to keep it in a safe, accessible place, as your model has been discontinued. Which also, mean take good are of your unit and do routine maintenance on it. That will add to the longevity to it's use.

Hope this helps you get the constant drainage hooked up properly.

I just bought a friedrick 1883 50 pint dehumidifier but it came with no manuel. it's working great except its not collecting water in the water tray. what am i doing wrong?


Go here for a manual along with other resources.
http://www.friedrich.com/support/brochures-and-manuals/residential-dehumidifiers

I suspect that it isn't collecting water either because there is not enough moisture in the air to remove any water, or the humidity setting is to high.

Thumbs Up if helpful, Feedback is Appreciated!!!

DDR2504 dehumidifier has always worked well. Now the fan runs and all seems normal, but the humidity is not dropping and you can tell that the dehumidifier is not cutting in and out. I do not have it on...


derkfarm - It may simply be a case of the humidity extraction level being set to high and/or the air intake filter needs to be removed and cleaned.

Solution: Lower the humidity extraction level to 32 - 35% and clean the air filter.

If the unit is in a basement, the ambient air temperature at floor level is colder than at chest level. Dehumidifiers don't work well at temperatures between 40 - 60 degrees F.

Solution: Set the unit up off the floor on a sturdy table, cabinet, counter top, etc. It must be sturdy enough to handle the weight of the unit, plus a full tank of water and the vibration, while in operation.

Any or all the simple solutions above may solve the problem. But, we won't know, until you try them.

Please let me know if it helped or didn't solve the problem. Thanks.

Unit runs but doesn't collect water and there is a lot of water in the basement. Have had dehumidifier for two weeks and was working well before.


Keep in mind, that a dehumidifier only draws humidity from the air, if the level of humidity is higher than what the controls are set on. For instance, if you have the dehumidifier set on 65 to 70%, that's a high level of humidity to maintain in a house. If you have it set for 35 or 45%, that's a low level of humidity to maintain in a house. Which, generally is what you want to maintain in the hot, humid summer months. Also, it's not uncommon on some dehumidifiers for the fan to almost run constantly. It's designed to keep the air moving, in a effort to detect when the humidity level rises.

Also, a dirty air intake filter makes the unit strain to keep up and can't take in moisture as it should. So, if you haven't cleaned the filter no is the time to check and clean it. And while your at it, clean the cooling coils too. Since it sounds like this unit has been working hard for 2 weeks.

The easiest and best way to test a dehumidifier at home, to see if it's working properly. Is to place it in the bathroom and turn the shower ON and don't operate the bathroom's exhaust fan. Set the humidity level low (45%), turn the unit ON and close the door when you leave. Wait 15 to 25 minutes and check the water collection bucket. If there's water in it, it's working as it should.

For more information on the proper operation of a dehumidifier, go to the Tips section of Fixya and look up "Taking the confusion out operating a dehumidifier".

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

I have a brand new Haier 45 pint Dehumidifier. The manual gives no advice on setting temperatures. What do I do? I set up with hose going in to my sump pump but no water seems to come out


Most of the time you set @55% RH. But on most Portable dehumidifiers you dont have a setting that tell you percent. Set about 1/2 way and see how much water it put out. That is about 60%. Go from there. Rus

Not operating properly - doesn't draw water


If your dehumidifier doesn't seem to run often but the humidity in the room is high, try adjusting the humidistat control on the dehumidifier to a dryer setting. If the dehumidifier seems to run constantly, but there's little or no water in the container, there may be a problem in the refrigeration system. Try cleaning the unit. If that doesn't work, you can't repair the refrigeration system yourself, you need a qualified appliance repair technician to do that.
