Haier dehumidifer HD656E

Directions unclear: states "when stop the model, please be noticed that you should restart it at least 3 minutes later, which is benefit foe the machine" (clearly written elsewhere)........does this mean we HAVE to restart it 3 minutes later or does it mean IF we shut it off we shouldnt start it up again until at least 3 minutes have elapsed? i think it means the latter..that if we turn it off we shouldnt restart it for at least 3 minutes....any help is appreciated. thanks

I believe there is some type of internal timer. If you turn it on before the timer is expired the lights will come on but the fan/compressor will not start. I will then come on automatically after a few minutes.

What you think it means is exactly what it does mean. When a running unit is shut off it should not be restarted until the system pressures have had time to balance out so the compressor can restart without difficulty.

Meaco dd8l fault light.

Not long after my unit ran out of warranty it developed a fault. Less then a minute of being turned on the double fan light would begin to flash and the unit would shut down. The filters were regularly maintained as recommended my the manufacturer. I am not one for just throwing it out and buying a new one, so I stripped it down.
i noticed the dissident wheel was not turning so I removed the motor, stripped it down and re greased the plastic gears within. Then I noticed the dissident wheel itself was catching on something (motor still removed) when I manually turned it. After taking the dissident wheel off I could clearly see the plastic housing behind the wheel was melted and snagging the metal 'spokes' on the dissident wheel. The area is located directly behind the heater unit.
after flattening the plastic down smooth, the unit is now working.

I have concluded the reason this may have happened is the unit being switched off before its shut down process had finished, meaning the metal 'spoke' was stopped next to the plastic with the heater still hot enough to heat the spoke enough to melt the plastic behind causing a snag for the wheel.

so I think the shut down procedure is quite important before turning it off at the wall.

Can someone tell me why I am getting an "L" on the front of my LG Dehumidifier...

If you have a dehumidifier that is not producing any water then you are wondering what you need to do to get this thing to work for you. In some cases you may be able to do something and in other situations there may be nothing that you can do.

If you do not hear the compressor running and the unit says that the humidity in the room is higher then the setting, then you have a problem with your dehumidifier.

A few things that can cause this are:

The circuit board relay has gone bad…replacement of this board will often cost more then a new unit. This also is a very common problem with many dehumidification units.

The compressor has failed…if you hear a buzz for a few seconds, every few minutes, then you have a bad compressor or at least bad start components on the compressor. Either way it again is a costly repair.

If the compressor is running and the coils are not getting cold then you have a refrigeration system leak. Recharging or fixing these units is very difficult and is another costly venture compared to the price of a new dehumidifier.

If the compressor is running but the fan is not, this also will cause low water production and continual freezing of the coil.

If the compressor and the fan are running but the coil is totally blocked then you will get no water production. Air needs to be continually moved over the cold coil to get the water out of the air.

If nothing is running, then you may also have a control board failure. Or the humidity sensor or humidistat has gone bad which tells the machine to run. If the sensor says that the humidity is low enough then it will never run.

Also if nothing is running check the float switch or the bucket switch. Many of these switches are very touchy and if you do not have the bucket in place just exactly right it will not trip the switch to allow the unit to run. These switches often are more fragile then they should be and break easily. The good thing is that when available they are easy to replace and relatively inexpensive.

There are some parts available for a few brands, but with the prices for most of the parts that you can replace running anywhere from 40.00 – 80.00 dollars, replacement parts with labor to install them, makes a repair more then the few hundred dollar cost of many of these dehumidifiers.

As you can see there are quite a few things that can cause your dehumidifier not to work. Systematically go through the list and eliminate things to get to the bottom of the issue causing your problem and then decide if it is worth spending the money to try to fix the old unit. Only you can make that decision.

My dehumidifier stopped working. What can I do?

Please explain what you mean by "My dehumidifier stopped working." It's a pretty broad term, which doesn't help in knowing which direction to go with helping you. Also knowing the brand and model number of your dehumidifier is extremely helpful. Thanks

Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall. Remove the bucket and check inside the top of the bucket for a Float Valve (some Haier unit have them) It may be stuck in the UP position. If so, jiggle the arm of the float vale to get it to return to the DOWN position. Reinstall the bucket again. However, leave the unit OFF & unplugged for 10 minutes, before plugging it back in and turning it ON. Whether you have a float valve of not, the 10 minute time out, should have given the unit's electronics time to reset themselves.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

It runs 5 to 10 minutes, then it stops. When I press the remote control boton, it works again for 5 to 10 minutes and then it stops. So I need to repress the remote control again to make it starts.

I guess you are having a problem. That model dehumidifier doesn't have a remote control. As a matter of fact, I'm not aware of any model dehumidifier that has a remote control. A remote would be useless. Now, some portable air conditioners have remote controls. Is that what you have? A portable A/C unit? Please advise. Thanks.

The dehumidifier runs but no waster is coming out

Frank it sounds like to me that it needs to be shut off a while, Was there a power outage or did you happen to shut it off and try to restart it real fast. If so then the compressor can not push the freon through. let it sit for about 8 to 10 minutes so the pressure drops and then restart it. Otherwise it will just burn up the compressor
