First, make sure that there's power to the unit. Has a circuit breaker in the circuit breaker panel been tripped? If so, unplug the unit before resetting the breaker. Also, check the receptacle or extension cord that you're using to power the unit, as it may be damaged.

If you have power to the unit, it may be that some critter or insects have gotten into the unit and shouted it out. In which case, you're lucky that it didn't start a fire. It's not a good idea to leave the dehumidifier running unattended for a week or more.

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

Is there a recall on this product? My compressor and fan run but no water is collected. I know other Amana dehumidifiers were recalled for fire risk due to compressor overheating so I took cover off and...


Your description indicates a loss of refrigerant in the dehumidifier. The metal heat exchanger above the water collector should become cold when the compressor is running - if it does not, your dehumidifier likely has lost it's refrigerant charge. You will have to take it to a certified (refrigerant handling) technician to repair. It may make more sense to replace with a new dehumidifier.

Check the CPSC website for dehumidifier recalls. they will have details of the brands/models/serial numbers of recalled units.

I have a two year old D545M dehumidifier that has stopped dehumidifying. The fan operates, but it is not removing any moisture. What could the problem(s) be?

I have the same problem--no water comes out.


make sure the front vent/filter is clean and free of debris. if there is not sufficient airflow across the condenser coil (front), it will not cool down. if it does not cool down, it won't remove the water from the air.
