Yes, the touch pad may defective. But, before you try to replace it, let's try something else first.

Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Wait 15 minutes and plug the unit back in. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set the humidity extraction level where you want it. Hopefully, that 15 minute time out allowed the unit to reset itself and revert back to the original factory settings.

If it didn't you can order replacement parts directly from Haier 877-337-3639 or locate a service center near you.

Hope this helped to solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Testimonial: "the fix was right on, cannot get the setting below the 50% humidity, but the unit works, will probably get new control if cost is worth it, thank you "

Goes on.... humidity % registers 70 but in just a minute or 2 it begis to decline and ends up at Lo which then wont pull water from the air. I know it is humid, some sensor must be getting fouled up.


70% is not what the dehumidifier is removing. It's what it is maintaining. Which is extremely high humidity. To lower the humidity level in the house lower it to 35%. That will remove a large amount of humidity over a fairly short (4 hours) period of time. If you have an analog unit (no LED Screen) set the humidity extraction knob on Maximum, which is 35%.

Keep in mind, dehumidifiers work the opposite of what you think.

New Whirlpool gold dehumidifier last summer. Used since then. It still runs (fan) but no water is being taken from the air. I clean the filters, looked at coils, they are like brand new. I hate to give up,...


Kim, it may simply be a case of the humidity extraction level being set to HIGH. Lower it to 35%. If it's an analog unit (No LED Display) turn the humidity extraction knob to Maximum. More often than not, this will solve the problem. If it doesn't the humidity sensor may need to be replaced.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

What is the optimal setting for controller dial


If you asking where the humidity extraction knob should be set for optimal humidity extraction. It should be set just below Maximum. Im assuming you have a manually controlled unit, rather than one with an LED screen. If that's not the case lower the numbers using the air down button to 35%.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Haier 65 pint dehumidifier. When I press the control button to lower the humidity setting, the word On comes up and I do not see numbers lowering.


Let's start from the beginning. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit for 5 minutes. Then plug the unit back end, and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Now, lower the the humidity extraction level to 40%, by using the Arrow Down Button. You will need to lower it by pushing the button for each % setting. DO NOT push and hold the Arrow Down Button.

Doing the above should solve the problem.

What is the proper setting for the Temp &Humidity?


Set the temp level at whatever point your home's temperature is now. Lower the humidity level to 35%. If you don't have an LED screen on your unit, set the manual control to maximum.This way, you will extract the maximum amount of humidity and make your home more comfortable.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Our dehumidifier turns on for only a few seconds, then shuts off.


Wendy, it's probably because the humidity level on the unit is set higher than the humidity level in the house. Keep in mind, the humidity level you set the control to, is not the amount extracted from the air. It's the level you want it to maintain. The higher the percentage level, the more humidity stays in the house. The lower the percentage level, the more humidity it removes, until the lower humidity level is reached. Then the humidifier will automatically shut OFF and/or the unit shuts OFF, because the bucket is full. Once it's emptied and replaced, if the unit needs to continue to extract humidity, it will start running again.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Humidity pad doesn't work


You've posted in DEhumidifier section.

Sounds like you have a Humidifier. Please post there.

Although why you want to add humidity to the tropics is beyond me.

Fluttering humidity reading


Hi,
I would return it as it sounds like part of the circuit is defective.
Anything like this should have built-in Historesis - so it will wait untill a limit is reached before turning on, but also turn off at a lower limit to prevent this wasteful short-cycling.
