Question about Maytag M7DH65B2A Dehumidifier

3 Answers

Dehumidifier doesn't turn on at all.

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.

empty the tank, and clean the dust off of the condenser in the front or clean the filter. if it still won't turn on, may have a bad sensor or a siezed compressor.

It is three and a half years old and ices up even at warm temps.


The problem you're having is generally caused by the air intake filter needing to be removed and cleaned and/or the cooling coils need to be cleaned.

I assume you already know how to remove and clean the filter, since you've had the unit for 3 1/2 years, so I won't bore you by addressing that.

The coils can be cleaned with warm water and a mild dish washing detergent using a sponge or rag. Once they have been wiped down, rinsed and dried, apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

Hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

My kenmore model 580 53701300 gets electricity, but will not turn on. The filter seems clean and what's behind it looks clean, too.


I'm assuming the that you determined the unit is getting power, because the lights on the dehumidifier light up, when you turn Master ON/OFF Switch ON.

If that's the case, it may simply be that the humidity level you have it set for is equal to or higher than the humidity level in the house. In which case, lower the humidity level to it's lowest setting to see if the unit turns on then. Also, check the water collection bucket, making sure it's installed properly and is making good contact with the safety trigger.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Water is not going into the tank, but it does run and panel lights up. Filter is clean. It worked for the past 2 months.


Hi,

First, make sure the humidistat isn't set too high by adjusting it to the lowest humidity setting and running it again.

Next, test the dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower running.

If you don't see water collecting in the unit after several minutes, turn the unit off and clean all dehumidifier filters and coils.

If, after adjusting the settings and cleaning the unit, you still don't see water collecting, you may have a refrigeration issue. This situation will have to be addressed by a qualified technician.

Good luck

I've had the lg LHD45EL Dehumidifier for about 1.5 years now. I have used it every spring/summer. I turned it on this year and it runs but the water does not collect. Obviously something is wrong any idea...


I found the same thing. I've had my LHD45EL for 2 or 3 years. Worked great for my basement. This year I hear it run, but it doesn't collect water. I cleaned the filter and of course nothing. I took the back cover off, and tried running it. The condenser runs, but the copper tube leading up to the coil doesn't get cold. My guess is that the freon (or whatever refrigerant they are using) has leaked out. There doesn't appear to be any way to recharge it, the original tube has been crimped and soldered. Looks like junking it and buying a new one is the only option unless someone is good with a torch and solder. My question is whether to go LG or not.

Hi Fixya: The Filter on my Danby DDR7009REE Room dehumidifier never seems to accumulate any dust. It is supposed to need to be cleaned every two weeks by vacuuming or soaking, but the filter is always...


How often does the unit run? Does the fan run when the unit is suppose to be running(as the fan pulls the air thru the filter). If every thing operates correctly and the filter is in the right location on the unit then all I can say is that you keep a clean house. Personally I only need to clean the air filter on my dehumidifier about once a summer. I wouldn't be overly concerned if it isn't getting very dirty.

First you would need to clean the filter. LG recommends cleaning the filter every 2 weeks on their dehumidifiers. The second thing you need to do is clean the coils periodically. On this dehumidifier it should include a brush for cleaning the coils. It is located on the top of the bucket. To access the coils the following needs to be done:

1.) Unplug the unit from power
2.) Remove the bucket and also the air filter
3.) Remove the front pannel by removing the 2 lower screws and depressing the tabs.
4.) Once the panel is removed you will see the coils. You need to clean them with the brush. Go in an up and down motion to remove the dirt and dust.

Now use the reverse steps to put it back together. If your dehumidifier runs often I recommend you clean the coils about every 3 to 4 months. This is a common problem on alot of dehumidifiers and people think their dehumidifier is broken. Most of the time the coils are just dirty which causes the water to stay between them and freeze. Keep me posted. Also if you found this response helpful, please rate this solution when you get a chance. Thanks - Tech101
