Why does blower wheel stop on Frigidaire dehumdifier?


Good Afternoon Desi,

I understand that the blower wheel is not spinning on your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD504DUD. I also see that the compressor will stay on unless the dehumidifier is unplugged. I suggest you contact the manufacturer for further assistance. They can possibly clarify why the compressor stays on and why the blower fan is not working. If not, they should at least be able to point you in the right direction of having your dehumidifier working. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Kenmore 407 50 pint dehumidifier won't drain through hose


Did you punch out (or cut) the plug that the hose connects to? If not, its blocking the water from draining to the hose.

Also, make sure the unit is higher than the drain and that the hose is not kinked or clogged.

Please rate 4 stars if this is helpful. Thanks and good luck!

I have a Kenmore 54701 70 pint dehumidifier about 4/5 years. It has worked well until recently. It is hooked up to a garden hose into a drain. I noticed water was dripping from the housing. The drain is...


Marco, There are 4 things than can cause the problem. All are solvable.

1. The air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Remove and clean the filter if necessary.

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

3. 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.

4. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 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.


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

01% humidity


When you push the power button, the blower fan comes on. In a few minutes you should hear a second "click"--that is your compressor starting. Do you hear that second click?

The compressor is located in the rear bottom on the right side looking at the machine. After you press the start button and the blower fan comes on, bend over near the back of the unit and listen for the "click".
