If everything is running and no water is being produced the system may have lost its refrigerant. There are two motors in dehumidifiers. One is the fan and the other is the compressor. Make sure they are both running.

Prt of the problem may be a dirty or clogged air intake filter.

Turn the unit OFF and unplug, it before removing the filter to check and clean it.
You can ether vacuum it or if it's really dirty & clogged, wash it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly, shake off access water and allow it to dry completely, before reinstalling it.
Never operate the unit without the filter in place. As this could damage the unit.

Plug the unit back in and turn it ON. Try lowering the humidity extraction level now, using the arrow down button. For a very damp, humid basement application 35% is a good setting to start with for several days.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

We just bought a new Friedrichs dehumidifier for our damp basement. The temp is reading 81 and the humidity 63 and it's been running for 2 hours. The basement is about 1000 sq feet and the outdoor temp...


Iris, all dehumidifiers generate some heat while in operation. However, it may be generating higher temps because of it's location. Dehumidifiers don't work well in temperatures below 65 degrees, In fact they struggle below that temp. Unless it's a Low Temperature unit, designed specifically for basement applications.

For example, the ambient air temperature never changes more than 10 degrees F throughout the year.
The air temperature at floor level (where the dehumidifier is placed) is colder then the air temperature at shoulder level. Raising the unit up off the floor onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight of the unit, plus a bull bucket of water, will generally solve the problem.

Be sure to clean the air intake filter regularly. At least once every 2 weeks. And wipe off the cabinet and the front louvers, when you change the filter. Always, turn the unit OFF & Unplug it, before removing the filter. Never operate the unit without the filter in place. Doing so could cause damage to the unit.

I hope this information has helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have always set my M7DH45B2A at 60 percent (it's in the basement). Lately it runs all the time and the humidity does not go below 65 percent. It seems "stuck" there even if I lower my...


There are 5 basic, but solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 65 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

I hope the above helped you. Please let me know and thanks for choosing FixYa.

When the dehumidifier runs it forms ice on the top of the unit and does not collect much water in the bottom.


The problem you described can be caused by 3 things:

1. The air intake filter is dirty or clogged and needs to be removed and cleaned.

2. The cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it before attempting
to clean the coils with warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Then rinse and wipe dry. A light
coating of WD40 will help them stay clean.

3. The dehumidifier is being operated in a basement, where the air temperature at floor level is
below 65 degrees. When this happens dehumidifiers struggle at temps below 65 degrees F
unless it its a Low Temp model, designed for basement applications. Raising the unit up off
the floor onto a sturdy table or counter top, that can hold the weight of the unit, plus a full tank
of water, will generally resolve this problem.

I hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Doesnt take any water out


Most dehumidiers have a "Frost Guard" thermal protector on the condensor coil. This protector will turn the compressor off should the temperature fall below 65 degrees in the basement. The condensor fan will still continue to run anticipating the restart of the compressor.
Hence, 3 things could be wrong.
1. air temp.of basement is too cold
2. Frost guard could be faulty
3. Freon leak in condensor coil.
Assuring that basement temp. is above 65 degrees is about all you can do unless you have it checked out by a technician.
