Hampton Bay Dehumidifier Model# HB50

I'm having a problem with our Dehumidifier in the basement. It's the typical portable basement unit. The unit kicks on and off every 10 seconds. It sounds like the condensor is kicking out, but I'm not sure if it's the capacitor or the condensor. Can you help?

    The compressor motor comes on for about 2 secs and turns off...this is repeated about every 30 sec or so.

    I am having the exact same problem with my Hampton Bay HB50 Deshumidifier. I was wondering if replacing the capacitor fixed the problems?

    Thank you

The anti-icing switch is bad, I have seen several of these fail. No longer available from HB but pretty generic:

I have a Haier Dehumidifier HD 451-T runs but no water is in bucket. What makes the compressor turn on nothing is cold in the unit when it runs.

CHANCES ARE THE DUAL CAPACITOR HAS BLOWN APART...YOU WILL KNOW THIS IF THE SIDE WALL IS RUPTURED. THE CAPACITOR IS LOCATED TO THE RIGHT OF THE COMPRESSOR MOUNTED WITH 1/4 HEX SCREW..PART NUMBER WILL BE 50150115N001..AROUND $17-21.00.

Hampton Bay Dehumidifier HB30-E SN#362096 0910 Keeps freezing up. I've ceaned the filter. (It's always been clean.) Should I have the freon (spelling) checked?

Freon is no longer used, it has been banned by the EPA. Never the less, the first thing you should do is clean the coils. If they are dirty, it will cause the unit to freeze up or frost over. Warm water and a mild dish washing detergent will do the trick. Wipe them off thoroughly and then dry them. Then apply a thin coating of WD40.

Another cause is using the unit in a basement application. The air temperature at floor level is colder than at chest level. Dehumidifiers struggle at temperatures between 40 & 65 degrees F (unless, you have a Low Temp Model designed for basement applications). Raising the unit up off the floor on to a sturdy table, counter top etc that can handle the weight of the unit and a full bucket of water, will generally resolve the problem

And finally, the defrost sensor may be faulty and needs to be replaced.

If none of the above solves the problem for you, have the refrigerant checked,. it may need to recharged.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Dehumidifier tripping the breaker

be very careful - with the unit unplugged - try shorting the capacitor with an insulated screwdriver. if you get a healthy spark - the cap is probably ok. if you don't replace the cap. the cap is used in the motor's start winding.
