Dehumidifier keeps shutting itself off.

I have a GE dehumidifier that is about four years old; just recently, it started to shut itself off. It will run for anywhere from 20 seconds to two or three minutes and then it just shuts itself down for no apparent reason. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks for your help.

    that is exactly what happens with mine ecxept that - regardless of initial setting (usually CO), it defaults to 20.

For some reason it is overheating and shutting itself off. There is a law that all electronics are supposed to have a point to where it automatically shuts off if it gets too hot from a malfunction or loose connection in the circuit board. It is to protect the consumer. You either need to take it to a tech or get rid of it. Get a new one.

I have a LAD704DUL frigidaire dehumidifier that will not shut off after being shut off, and not until the plug is pulled. Is this worth getting fixed

Dear Peter Nicolle,

according to the user manual the dehumidifier will not stop running for the following 5 reasons:

  • Windows or doors near dehumidifier are open to outdoors.
  • Area to be dehumidified is too large.
  • Air movement through dehumidifier is blocked.
  • Dehumidifier has been installed or restarted recently.
  • Dehumidifier is in the CONTINUOUS mode.
You can find more information on the user manual on page 9 under the category DEHUMIDIFIER RUNS TOO MUCH.

Check to see if the styrofoam is still in the lever of the shut off arm. It's atop the water reservoir. If there is nothing there it will not float causing the arm not to shut off.
