Question about Danby DDR583R Dehumidifier

Open Question

Danby dhh30SB, 30 pint dehumidifier not working.

The above dehumidifier was working up to a year ago. When I power on, the compressor won't come on. It clicks and then pops the breaker. It's possible it was running before with no water in it? I am handy with a multimeter. What can I check with it, to get it working. Thanks. Tim

I dropped the water bucket by accident on the dehumidifier, and I have the same problem. Here what I found :
First, remove the water bucket and find the circuit diagram, it is very useful.

E1 code is related to the room humidity sensor, E2 code is related to the room temperature sensor and E3 code is related to the safety thermistor sensor. If you have one of these error code displayed, you will probably have to replace the sensor.

The humidity and temp sensors are located on the same board. To access it, remove the water bucket and you will see the 2 screws holding the front panel. Remove the screws, then gently prayed the front panel. Be careful, there is two plastic clip on the top of the panel and they are really easy to break. The board is located at the top right, under the cover. The safety thermistor is located on a pipe on the right side of the dehumidifier.

My Haier HD601 dehumidifier keeps popping breaker


Hi,
If you are blowing the breaker then you are pulling way to much current on the startup or you have a short in the unit...
either way you probably will be much better off by replacing the unit with a new one... they do not cost enough that it is worth sinking hundreds of dollars into fixing an old one...

When compresser comes on blows electric breaker


the outlet that you have the dehudifier plugged into has too many items plugged in on the same circuit and when the compressors kicks in it draws more amperage than the breaker load can hold thus popping the breaker either remove some electrical apliances from that circuit load or plug in elsewhere

Knocks out house curcuit breaker and stopes running. Use to work fine and did for at least two years now kicks out breaker after running for a while. Have moved it to different circuits and still does it....


You will need to put an amp meter on the compressor wires and monitor the reading till it trips the breaker. If the reading exceeds the name plate spec then chances are the compressor is going bad.If the spec is in watts, take your amp reading and multiply it by 120 volts this will give you the wattage of the compressor. For a second opinion take it to repairshop to see if it is worth repairing.
Good Luck!

Dehumidifier trips breaker


compressor problem. Talked with coworker who had the same problem. He brought his in for repair and was told the compressor needed to be replaced. The cost of compressor close to the cost of a new unit so time for a new one.
