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

If this unit fails within a relatively short period of time (in or just outside of the warranty) buy a replacement unit and return the defective unit in the new unit's packing materials for a refund.

Using as heater and unit is blowing cold air

A heat pump is an air conditioner that reverses its refrigerant flow. In the cooling mode, the evaporator is cold to the room and its condenser is hot. In the heating mode, a valve reverses the refrigerant flow and makes the evaporator warm and the condenser cold.

Using heater...cold air out of the back

With heat pumps that's the way they work. In heat mode they are using the evaporator as the condenser and it blows heat out the front and cold out the back. In cooling mode, a reversing valve switches the gas flow reversing the operation of the coils and it blows cold out the front and heat out the back.

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.

The dehumidifier is blow cold air

Is it collecting water? The air coming out the back top half should be cool/warm. It will be a little warmer at the bottom near the compressor.
