    So do i have to buy a new humidifier or is getting a new circuit board the way to go?

    I would look into replacement because the mark up on circuit boards is very high and hard to come by in certain circumstances. It will be cheaper and less stress buying new dehumidifiers are very cheap and disposable.

    I was looking at the ratings for them how is the Soleus Air (30 pint), it seem to have gotten good ratings, but who knows. what is your reccomendation? I need all the info and help I could get. I appreciate it.

    I would definitly go with Soleus Air they seem to be pretty good but all dehumidifiers are made cheaply so they are affordable. All these companies are into cost savings and they keep cuting down on materials and raising the price and they wonder why they have so many problems.

  • valeriehgc Jun 29, 2011

    Soleus Air it is. Thank you so very much for your advice, it's very much appreciated

I have an amana d545m in the crawl space at my lakehome...when i went to check on the furnace filter, i noticed it was not running and has no power...how and what do i check to diagnose the...


First, make sure that there's power to the unit. Has a circuit breaker in the circuit breaker panel been tripped? If so, unplug the unit before resetting the breaker. Also, check the receptacle or extension cord that you're using to power the unit, as it may be damaged.

If you have power to the unit, it may be that some critter or insects have gotten into the unit and shouted it out. In which case, you're lucky that it didn't start a fire. It's not a good idea to leave the dehumidifier running unattended for a week or more.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Is there any way to run automatically. . . where when it reaches humid per cent it shuts off? Can you rig to run for x hrs. per day and then shut off and restart the next day?


Norman, once the unit reaches the extraction level you have it set for, the unit will turn OFF automatically. However, depending on the humidity level in your home, it may take several cycles of running and emptying the bucket until it reached. After that, it should turn OFF, once the level is reached. Then when the humidity level rises above the setting it's on, it will start up again.

Since your unit is a Manually Controlled unit, there's no safe way to "rig' it to run on with a timer. The plug in wall timers are not rated high enough to handle the load of the dehumidifiers operation. Trying to use one, would fry the timer and possibly the dehumidifier.

If you want all the features you mentioned, you will need to purchase a new electronically controlled dehumidifier.

Stopped Draining through hose


The hose must be plugged. Empty the dehumidifier, disconnect the hose and see what the blockage is, then remove it or get a new hose.
