Question about Maytag M3DH30B2A Dehumidifier
I turned my Dehumidifier off for the season and when I turned it back on today the compressor is not kicking in. Thanks for any help
Same problem with mine. Just pulled the thing apart ...and they were nice enough to have a schematic right behind the water bucket. In my case I found the defrost switch was open. If you pull the back off it's located in the lower right corner clipped to the compressor pipe and covered with a black insulating putty. It has two large red wires coming out of it as well, quite obvious. I unclipped mine and tapped it a few times and it closed up - so now the compressor will come on ...but I'd like to get a known good one in there. I just found this site was I was trying to find the part. If anyone knows where to get one please post! PN: 37TA32 501624 F57-20F J0332 Thanks! - Pat

Try gently tapping the compressor a few times -use a wooden stick or similar to avoid damage -sometimes that is all that's needed. There are however many other possible reasons for a compressor not to start - most have their own fuse/controller assembly (sometimes this is very obvious inside the case, often a car spade type fuse which is worth checking visually), and there are cut-outs that will stop the compressor if it is low on gas, although usually it will start first for a few seconds if this is the case. Sorry, but the (www.maytagair.com) website is down at the moment, but try it again later and you should find their troubleshooting and support is good. Hope this helps :)
