Question about Goldstar DH504EL Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Runs all the time, not collecting water

My Goldstar DH504EL Dehumidifier recently started running all the time and will not auto shut off. It is hooked up to a hose for continuous run off to condinsation pump. It doesn't seem to be running any water off. The top of the unit feels very warm and a little condinsation is collecting on the top.

I don't know your particular unit, but my guess is that the compressor is bad. If it is old, it may not be worth fixing.

Runs and allows you to adjust settings, but no water ever fills bucket

Hi,

First, make sure the humidistat isn't set too high by adjusting it to the lowest humidity setting and running it again. Next, test the dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower running. If you don't see water collecting in the unit after several minutes, turn the unit off and clean all dehumidifier filters and coils. If, after adjusting the settings and cleaning the unit, you still don't see water collecting, you may have a refrigeration issue. This situation will have to be addressed by a qualified technician.

Take care.

Dehumidifier runs loud

What is the temperature in the space where you are operating thsi dehumidifier? When you first start a refrigerating system some refrigerant may have condensed into the compressor oil. When the compressor starts the pressure in it drops rapidly. The oil boils and some passes through the compressor valves. After a few minutes of operation this condition normally corrects itself.
