Question about Amana D545M Dehumidifier
Your description indicates a loss of refrigerant in the dehumidifier. The metal heat exchanger above the water collector should become cold when the compressor is running - if it does not, your dehumidifier likely has lost it's refrigerant charge. You will have to take it to a certified (refrigerant handling) technician to repair. It may make more sense to replace with a new dehumidifier.
Check the CPSC website for dehumidifier recalls. they will have details of the brands/models/serial numbers of recalled units.

We all appear to be in the same mess --Thanx Haier
This product says its Amana, but rest assured it is an Haier
The problem is most likely with the engineering design of the board. Im not an electrical engineer so be careful litning to me to closely :) There is only a half bridge rectifier on this board and 2 zener diodes that clamp down on the voltage. My guess on yours is the Zeners have been shorted and no longer clamping voltage down to aroun 24 volts for the low side of the board. I spoke with Haier and they have no schematics that state the zener specifications. They also said there was a 6 month backorder on ordering a new board. Oh and by the way if you want to order a new board and wait 6 months for the backorder it would cost you 75.00. All this jsut to repeat the problem again, because of bad design. O well ----- I wish products were not made better, so I wouldnt have to fill guilty about putting this in the landfills.
