Amana D530M Dehumidifier won't run

This humidifier one year old, was working fine, just stopped working. No lites, no fan or compressor run. Have 120 volts at circuit bd. fuse, fuse is OK. Tank switch OK, humidistat OK, My guess is the circuit board is defective. It has these numbers on it:
2014303/EC
02514-210
Is this circuit board available? Cost?
Thanks,
Jerry

We all appear to be in the same mess --Thanx Haier
This product says its Amana, but rest assured it is an Haier
The problem is most likely with the engineering design of the board. Im not an electrical engineer so be careful litning to me to closely :) There is only a half bridge rectifier on this board and 2 zener diodes that clamp down on the voltage. My guess on yours is the Zeners have been shorted and no longer clamping voltage down to aroun 24 volts for the low side of the board. I spoke with Haier and they have no schematics that state the zener specifications. They also said there was a 6 month backorder on ordering a new board. Oh and by the way if you want to order a new board and wait 6 months for the backorder it would cost you 75.00. All this jsut to repeat the problem again, because of bad design. O well ----- I wish products were not made better, so I wouldnt have to fill guilty about putting this in the landfills.

My stupid Amana D530M died as well, maybe 18 months old. The control board appeared to be the problem. (Like everyone elses) Amana sucks. I will never select Amana anything again, unless they start to sell beer.

I can't find a replacement board, so I wired the blower and compressor leads to the fuse, and then back to the main power lead, bypassing all of the control board functions.

Basically, you plug it in, and it runs fine, fan hi/lo speed still works.

There is no full tank sensor as well, obviously. So, I hooked a hose up, right to my floor drain.

I am not recommending anyone does this, just sharing what I did. I didn't want to haul this to the landfill, until it's dead.

Solution is very simple . Don't buy any of these Amana units . I had three of them . One lasted 1 year the other two 2 years in the D545m model . These things are cheap but they are junk!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My amana D530M would not run. Plugged it in and nothing. Found a blown fuse on circuit board (12 amp slow type). Fuse was under a opaque plastic cover. Having difficult time finding replacement fuse.

I have an Emerson Quiet Kool dehumidifier that is probably 20 years old. When it is running, you can hear the system cycling on and off every 2-3 seconds. The fan always runs. What could cause this?


The temperature sensor can be broken or because it is an old unit is the freon gas can be escaped by an internal leak in the compressor circuit and thus no longer works, there is a part to be internally freezing when the compressor is running. dismantel to look also if thereis somewhere in the circuit a solenoid-valve to find that will not get dc function by electronica.

The fan never stops running. The dehum. works fine that is the only problem. Is it the way I have it set how can I change that?


Bob, some humidifier fans run a lot, because they are designed to keep the air moving and when the humidity level rises, the compressor turns ON to extract the humidity. If you're operating the unit in a continual mode, it's not unusual for the fan to run almost constantly.Especially, is the humidity extraction level is set at or above 50%. Lowering it to 35% will cause it to extract more humidity and will turn on an off less.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Unit fan is running but the compressor is not.


Hi,
It could be a bad compressor, circuit board, or maybe even a sensor or dehumidistat...
Here is a tip about dehumidifiers that run but do not extract water from the air..

Fan will not come on.


The fan has to run if the compressor is running as the fan assists in removing the heat from the condenser coil. Can you spin the fan by hand? If there is full power(120 volts) to the fan and it isn't running then the fan motor is bad. Also, if the fan motor has a run capacitor this could keep the fan from running(if the capacitor is defective) so look for this first.

My 1 yr old Zenith ZD30 dehumidifier just stopped working all together. The bucket is empty and I checked the to be sure that a circuit didnt trip. Any suggestions as to what it can be?


The Zenith ZD30 is made by LG as many other brands are also. There is a fuse located on the control board. That may have blown. I have also had 3 LG units come into my shop with bad control boards. If the fuse is ok. Measure the ohms at the power plug L1 to Neutral, with the unit unplugged. It should read around 430 ohms. The ones with bad boards read real high. Hope this helps.

Ijust bought a danby dehumidifier ddr5009. The compressor works fine but the fan never stops running. Even if I set the timer on standby.


This dehumidifier is built in such a way that the fan runs all the time;however the compressor works only when it is needed. These infos are not specified in the booklet. It does not work like the old ones.

Knocks out house curcuit breaker and stopes running. Use to work fine and did for at least two years now kicks out breaker after running for a while. Have moved it to different circuits and still does it....


You will need to put an amp meter on the compressor wires and monitor the reading till it trips the breaker. If the reading exceeds the name plate spec then chances are the compressor is going bad.If the spec is in watts, take your amp reading and multiply it by 120 volts this will give you the wattage of the compressor. For a second opinion take it to repairshop to see if it is worth repairing.
Good Luck!

Dehumidifier won't run


After all that testing you have diagnosed the problem. It is the main circuit board. So there is not reason to do any more test. I would just get a new control board and off you go
