Leaking water I've had this dehumidifier for a few years and it's been fine. A couple days ago I emptied it and afterwards, it starting leaking. The unit had stranded water in it and I had to tip it over into a sink to drain it out. I've cleaned the filter. It runs, but it leaks water all over the floor from the bottom.

It sounds as though the collection pail is not installed correctly, or the hose fitting cap is loose. Make sure that the pail is seated correctly & the cap is tight. Inspect the bottom for rust perforation, too, although this is a long shot. If this fails, then the cold coil may have broken away from it's mount, & is dripping in the wrong place. Inspection with the cover off will reveal any misalignment or broken components. Repair as required.

Does not shut off when tank full, water leaks all over the floor if I don't watch it constantly

Sounds like the float valve inside tank may be stuck in closed position. Calcium buildup is very common. Good luck Juliana. Unplug and empty tank of any water and look for the float valve it should be near top of tank. Use a small bucket and mix vinegar and water and brush. Scrub that valve. Clean it up

Why does compressor continue running, even with dehumidifier turned off?

So I just had this happen with my Frigidaire fad704dwd dehumidifier. I went to basement and heard it running and sounded off. The compressor was running fan was off which is bad and humidity said 30. I then pushed the off button and it stayed running. I was able to fix it. To make long story short it was a bad ground. I took the plastic back, sides, and front off. There was a green ground (main ground) and Green/yellow ground (fan ground) on the front coil with a bunch of rust. Removed the grounds connected them both together and cleaned the surface area and used a new stainless screw nut and screw to remount the wires to evaporator coil. Everything started working fine after that and I put it back together. Good Luck

Dehumidifier seems to be running fine, but water leaking on floor even with minimal water accumulated in bucket?

Hey friend, thanks for your post!

It sounds like your dehumidifier needs to be professionally cleaned. What could be causing the problem is a buildup on the inside of your dehumidifier where the water drains out and it is causing the water to not drain properly. Additionally, I would check to verify that the drain hole is tightly secured with the plug. I know you stated that the bucket is not leaking but have you removed it to verify? Please comment back if further assist is needed. -Matt

Haier 45-pint dehumidifier unit cannot be turned on. It has been running fine last few days.

The first thing that comes to mind, is have you emptied the water collection bucket recently? If so, be sure that the bucket was properly reinstalled and is making contact with the bucket safety removal switch.

If you haven't emptied the bucket in the past few days, it may simply be full and will not start until it's emptied.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Everything seems to run fine, just hasn't pulled a drop of water

remove the back airfilter, and touch the tubes while the unit is running, if nice and cold, all is well, there just isnt any moisture there. but if compressor is running and tubes are warm , means freon/coolant has leaked out

Dehumidifier leakage

My dehumidifier leaked after about one year of perfect operation. I unscrewed the face plate exposing the cooling grill and found out that debris was blocking the drainage hole that fed into the water bucket. The debris came from zip ties used to bunch some wires together. Apparently they got brittle (from the constant cooling and warming?), fell apart and managed to make it's way to the drainage hole. Cleared it out and worked fine again.
