Question about Soleus CFM-25 Dehumidifier

1 Answer

No water in bucket

I have the Soleus CFM-25 and it sits in an 10x4 laundry/furnance room. I only use the dehumidifier when the dryer is going because that small room gets warm. It was working fine up until a month ago when I turned it on and after 10 hours there was no water in the bucket. Air blows on top, but no water seems to collect in the bucket. How can I fix this problem? Keep in mind there are 4 philip screws in the back, and two diff kind of screws I've never seen before in my life. So no idea how to take this apart if I wanted to.

    Thank you for letting me know. I just can't believe I paid almost $200 for this unit a year ago.

    Hey, thanks again!
    Have a great day.

If you can verify that the compressor motor is actually turning, then the problem is either a freon leak or a worn out compressor. if it is not turning, then the problem is either a damaged motor or motor is not getting voltage--need testing with meter to determine why. cheaper in long run to buy a new unit if bad compressor or motor or freon fill, but a fill may be only temporary if leak persists.

My soleus CFM40 has stopped dehumidifying. Just blows cold air. I think the heat element that dries the air stopped working. Do yo agree?

My Soleus Dehumidifer is not dehumidifying

If the room temperature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
I out mine over the floor drain.
Turn off and it will defrost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifiers work below a room temp of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensor from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.
