Question about Maytag M7DH65B2A Dehumidifier
My dehumidifier won't turn on at all. I'm assuming it is a fuse. It has a clean filter and good power running to it. What things can I check or replace to get it up and running again?
This dehumidiifier has an inherent design problem. There is a control printed-circuit board mounted above the cold coil, sitting in a shallow plastic well. The moist air eventuall condenses in the well and shorts out the board. I have found this on 2 units now. You can order a new board on line and it installs with just push on wire connectors. That will fix the unit but I suggest you mount the new board with longer screws and spacers to raise it out of the well.

Jeffs answer is right on. I purchased a new circuit board for $33.00 and installed it with some plastic washers as spacers and the unit started right up. You could see the black marks on the back side of the circuit board where it shorted out.
Thanks for the help.

Unplug then replug. I think the electronics get "confused" sometimes.
