No water collection

My dehumidifier is about 2 years old. It ran fine for about 1 year, then it started running exceptionally loud and never collects water. It will shut on and off automatically, but no water collection in bucket. Please advise.

    My dehumidifier is'nt a year old and I have the same problem. It runs as if nothing is wrong but, it doesn't collect water. I've taken it apart (case) and can't see anything. Any advise?

    My 1 year old dehumidifier has stopped collecting water - the room hygrometer shows 80% humidity

  • Anonymous Jun 29, 2008

    I took mine apart and nailed the problem down to non-functioning fan motor. If the fan is not working then the humidity will quickly fall within area near the humidity probe and the machine will shut down.



    I think if you replace the fan motor it'll start working again. I am currently looking for a new fan motor.

    My LHD65EL dehumidifier is about a year old. It worked well for last summer and fall. I shut it off for the winter and then started it in the spring. I have cleaned the filters but it does not collect water. It turns on and off automatically but no water. Also the system is very loud when it is running. Please help.

As I already said in my report of similar behavior the problem appears to be that the
fan motor has burned out. If humid air is not constantly being pushed past the humidity probe the dehumidifier cannot run. I starts up and then (watch it on yours) humidity reading will rapidly fall in front of your eyes and the gadget will shut down. The solution appears to be replacement of the fan motor. Also, check yours by putting your hand against the grill in front and behind the unit. If there is no air flow you can feel on your hand then the problem is definitely the fan motor.

Compressor may be starved for freon or blockage in freon line...tech must troubleshoot.

The dehumidifier has been running but not collecting any water. I didnt have it running at all throughout the winter, not sure if something clogged during that time. It's only 2 years old.

Hi,
When the compressors start to go bad they often start to get very loud also...the cost to replace the compressor will probably be more then a new unit...

Yes they should last longer than that, but the sad thing is that they don't make anything like they used too...just check out all the problems in this site for a few minutes...most of the problems should never happen...
