Question about Haier HDN655E Dehumidifier
I have a Haier HDN655E that worked well for over a year but lately I've been having problems with it where the unit turns on and the fan blows but the compressor will not kick in. I've set the desired humidity anywhere between 30-50 and it shows the current humidity around 60-70 but the compressor will not engage and dehumidify the air. I've opened it up and don't see any loose wires or anything but I don't know what to look for and I can't find any service manual for the unit. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Use a jumper cord and go directly to the compressor to see if it will run. if it don't run, open up the motor box and see if there is a klixon overload inside. this should be normally closed. if it isn't replace it. the klixon is a thermal overload cutout. it usually trips because of high winding temperatures and protects the motor inside. the compressor is a hermetically sealed unit. no, or little freon will cause the motor to overheat.
