Verify the humidity reading with another device. Perhaps the humidity sensor is dirty or bad.
Another possibility is the switching device that runs the compressor and fan is shorted. If it's a mechanical relay, the contacts may have welded together, or if it's a solid-state relay, it's got a punch-through or meltdown in a device junction. My guess is it's a mechanical relay since you mention it used to click on and off and now you don't hear that. The relay may be on the control board, or it may be mounted separately - I don't have a photo or diagram of the inside of your model available.
Hi Ra Ma,
After you have set the desired humidity, the readout will display the actual room humidity. It has a built in hygrometer which will be on the display while it is running.
You change it and it shows the actual levels.
keywords (from display) Ultronic forecast week day humidity temperature trend comfort level - DOWN = toggles F/C temp - UP = toggles alarm - MODE = selects date/time display - hold down MODE to enter "set" mode for data currently displayed - use momentary MODE to choose target item - use UP/DOWN to change item
Set the temp level at whatever point your home's temperature is now. Lower the humidity level to 35%. If you don't have an LED screen on your unit, set the manual control to maximum.This way, you will extract the maximum amount of humidity and make your home more comfortable.
The model you have was made by Fedders for Maytag. The fan runs as a recirculating fan, to continually sense when the humidity level rises, above what have the unit set on. Here in, may be the problem. If you have the humidity level set higher than 50%, that's pretty high and the unit want remove much if anything. It will just continue to maintain that level. Keep in mind, the unit's humidity level must be set LOW, for the compressor to kick on and start removing humidity. By low, I mean 35% or minimum, if your unit does not have an LCD display.
I must caution you, that there is associate on this website that would tell you, that the level should be set on Maximum. Believe me, that simply is not the case. That is, unless you want your home to be hot and humid.
Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.
first make sure a proper manual j is done on the space, then make sure your not bringing in fresh air while dehumidifying. Your either grossly over sized or slight under, you'll know if its over it will feel clammy, you can have mold issues and the equipment will most likely short cycle. If its under sized it will stubble to meet tempetures
It sounds as if the temperature sensor probe is touching the cold coil inside. The sensor is located in the incoming airflow, in front of the cold coil. It must not touch the coil. This should be visible with the cover off. You can gently bent the sensor away fron the coil, 1/4-1/2" of clearance is plenty.
