Question about Fedders A3DH30B2A Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Not dehumidifiing The dehumidifier powers on ok,and to all appearances is working,but does not produce any water in the reservoir. I took the back off and the one side is getting cold, the one with the black insulation on it, the other line is getting hotter. Any ideas as to what is wrong? Is it low on coolant? It is new but has never worked. The other dehumidifiers we have work fine in the same area that we tried to use this one. Thanks, Gary

My DeLonghi DD50PSC dehumidifies but the pump never comes on. Everything is ocnnected to the continuous draiining using the pump. Suggestions?

A blocked drain tube was the cause of the pump not working issue with this dehumidifier. I removed the back cover (5 screws on back, 1 screw on each side) and cleaned out the accumulated gunk in the small, clear reservoir on the back right. It took a little time using compressed air and pipe cleaners, but the effort ultimately worked.

Dehumidifier VS. Air conditioner

A dehumidifier is basically the same thing as an air conditioner but both coils (condenser and evaporator) are in the same unit meaning a dehumidifier exhaust warm air in the same room it is in. running a dehumidifier would make an air conditioner run more because of the warm exhaust, when you run an air conditioner it acts like a dehumidifier and dries the air. As far as saving energy it all depends on the size of the AC and dehumidifier and the size of the room. If you want warm dry air, use a dehumidifier; if you want cool dry air run the AC but not both.
How do all these parts fit together to pull moisture from the air? It's fairly simple, but very effective:
  1. A fan collects air from the surrounding area and pulls it into the dehumidifier.
  2. As the air passes through, it comes into contact with the dehumidifier's cooled coils. These coils use condensation to pull moisture from the air. The collected moisture remains on the coils and drips into the dehumidifier's reservoir.
  3. The dehumidifier reheats the air and exhausts it back into the room.
A dehumidifier usually has a removable plastic bucket for are reservoir; most buckets also have a place where you can hook up a hose so the collected water can drain straight into a floor drain or pump. This frees you from having to remember to dump out the water. But don't worry too much about the reservoir overflowing -- most dehumidifiers also have an automatic shut-off. If you're using a dehumidifier in extremely moist conditions,however, or if you need to keep your dehumidifier on all the time, you should look into a unit with a built-in condensate pump, which regularly pumps water out of the unit's reservoir rather than simply relying on gravity to empty it as a hose does.

Water goes in reservoir, not thru hose to sump pump, leaking

blow some air thru the discharge line,, thats all it is the line is clogged, if the pan is filling with water, it is working but they do get clogged with dust and lint in the air,,
