I've a similar problem with broken fan motor. So I used an external fan. Placed it in the front, blowing towards the back of the unit. It worked!

Check to make sure the fan works. I have one with a broken internal fan and it will appear to work but will not collect water. Do not be fooled by the noise from the compressor. If your fan is broken, the compressor will run until it overheats. There should be airflow that you can feel behind the unit which should be cool and not hot.

Whirlpool Gold dehumidifier #AD70GUSX pumps out tonnes of heat

You have to set the dehumidifier at 45 percent, above 45 percent will remove water from your body and will dehydrate you. Any dehumidifier it may be check how much percent you set it at. I have the same model ad70gusx I set it at 45 and I love it.. I am in a cool dry place

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
