Very similar problem---Leak

Seems to be the same spot, lower left front corner. Any ideas?

    The unit leaks water on the floor although the bucket is properly positioned.

    It works fine, but it doesn't flow into the holding tank, but leaks around the sides and onto the floor. Seems like a tube is plugged. I cleaned the radiator front, and the screen of the filter and am trying it again. Any ideas?

This is happening to me as well. My motor shroud is cracked...I assume that's it. I'll replace it and see.

I have a Royal Sovereign BHD 450 dehumidifier. I moved and I do not know how to install the hose into the unit. It looks like it goes into a place in the bottom of the unit. The online manuals I found do...


Yes, there should be a screw out plug for the drain hole on the lower left. If the plug is not in there, the you will have water all over the floor. Unless, you can find the drain cap for it. The auto drain hose connection is about 6" above the manual drain hole, I just mentioned. That is where the auto drain hose connect. It's held in place by a squeeze clamp, that goes on the hose before making the connection. But, keep in mind, with out the drain hole screw in plug, water will still spill onto the floor.

If you can't find it, try Appliance Factory Parts 1-800-955-7075. As they may can help you.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa

I acquired used Amcor AHD65 Dehumidifier a couple days ago. I was told that it is just beyond the warranty period. I assume that it is a barely a year old. However, It worked this evening a sort since it...


You may still have some packaging materials left inside the unit. The plastic pan doesn't stay in side the bucket. It's used as a drain pan on the outside. Also, be sure the air intake filter is in place, is clean and there are no packaging materials behind it.

To extract more humidity, after checking all the things mentioned above. Lower the extraction level to 32 to 35%. Lower percentages means extraction of more humidity. (i.e.200% -35% = 5% drop in humidity).

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

How do you get the front grill off?


Remove water collection bucket. Remove two screws now visible (previously covered by top edge of bucket). Front panel now has to be flexed a bit on the side to release it from the metal side panels, near the lower portion of the front panel, then panel swings up and un-hooks from top.

Maytag Dehumidifer still works, but is leaking


Well life span is 3-15 years depends how long and hard you run them. 45 pint is about 1000sqft basment. rule of thumbs bigger better. run less and do a better job. I would start by filling the bucket and place in a dry shower see if you have a crack. cant find a source for the bucket discontinued this might be your problem. http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-M7DH45B2A-%3d%3di1025984&PartID=1025984 Repair cost are about 40-50 and hour!!!! good luck

Goldstar DH304 Freezing up / no water in bucket


Thermostat or the temperature control module are not working properly. Also make sure that your fan blades are not broken or warped as this will cause you a problem. Also if the coils have or do get iced up then it will be a low coolant problem. But this is a thermostat or temp control problem

This will need to be serviced. LG has a 5 year warranty on these models. They usually will tell you of a service center nearby which will service it free of charge since it is under warranty. If you do not live near a service center they may ship you a replacement and you send your old dehumidifier back to them. Make sure you have your reciept when you contact them so they can verify it is under 5 years old.

Front panel removal


You should see the tabs near each corner on the top and near each corner on the sides up towards the top. What I recommend is pull out slightly where you removed the screws. Then when you look closely you will be able to see the tabs. Once you see the tabs you can compress them with a small flat head screwdriver.

Leak


Mine did this last year. I took the housing off of the left side and found a clear plastic tube had popped off the fitting, I put it back on and it worked fine. The tube was toward the lower front of the unit.
