Why does my dehumidifer not work?


If it is not running because it thinks the bucket is full even when it isn't, the problem is that the float is broken or jammed. A replacement is no longer available, but you can find the small switch and tape it so it always stays on. It won't shut off when the bucket is full, but it will run. This assumes all the other panel lights come on properly - you didn't provide much detail about what works and what doesn't work.

Dehumidifer FDD40J6, probably 10 years old, just stopped working. Emptied the bucket and it won't start again despite settings on dials. Electricity is working - take out bucket and light goes on.


The problem lies in the way the bucket is reinstalled or the float valve (if yours is so equipped) is stuck in the UP position.

Remove the bucket for it's holder and check for the float valve. If it is stuck in the up position, jiggle the arm to make it return to the down position. Be fore you reinstall the bucket, look at the back wall of the bucket holder. There you will see a trigger switch. It's the bucket safety removal switch. Check it to make sure it's still intact. At 10 years old it may have broken OFF. If it appears to be be intact, install the bucket "squarely" into the bucket holder from top to bottom. Being sure that it makes firm contact with the bucket safety removal switch. When installed correctly, the bottom of the bucket will not tilt down at all.

Also, check the air intake filter as it may be dirty of clogged.

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

Our dehumidifer runs and runs and there is no water in the receiving bucket. The settings are at 55%. Any suggestions? It's about 4 years old.

Maytag Dehumidifer still works, but is leaking


Well life span is 3-15 years depends how long and hard you run them. 45 pint is about 1000sqft basment. rule of thumbs bigger better. run less and do a better job. I would start by filling the bucket and place in a dry shower see if you have a crack. cant find a source for the bucket discontinued this might be your problem. http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-M7DH45B2A-%3d%3di1025984&PartID=1025984 Repair cost are about 40-50 and hour!!!! good luck

Dehumidifer shuts off when tank is only 1/4 filled


Sensor calibration . Make sure you are using the factory bucket, I believe it senses the weight of the bucket and water combined.Check and make sure the platform is not taped for shipping .
