I have an ebac15 dehumidifier. When I moved it there was an oily liquid underneath. Why would this be?

There could be several reasons why you're finding an oily liquid underneath your Ebac15 dehumidifier: Refrigerant Leak: If the dehumidifier is leaking refrigerant, it could result in an oily substance pooling underneath. Refrigerant leaks are often accompanied by an oily residue1\. Compressor Issue: A malfunctioning compressor can cause refrigerant leaks and result in an oily substance accumulating underneath the dehumidifier. Condenser Coil Leak: If the condenser coil is damaged or deteriorating, it may lead to refrigerant leaks and the presence of oil underneath the dehumidifier. Internal Component Failure: Internal components such as seals or tubing may degrade over time, leading to leaks of refrigerant or oil. Improper Handling During Transport: If the dehumidifier was tilted or handled roughly during transportation, it could have caused oil from the compressor or other internal components to leak. Given the potential hazards associated with refrigerant leaks, it's advisable to discontinue the use of the dehumidifier and consult a professional technician for diagnosis and repair.

Hi, do you know whether the Airforce Dehumidifier model BQWDH-816EAH is a desiccant of compressor type? Can't find the information anywhere. Thank you

The Units are made in the Far East and are often sold under different maker names but retaining all or part of the model number. Here is the manual sold by Evantair. It has a compressor.https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1016879/Evantair-Wdh-816eah.html#manual..

LG Dehumidifier model LHD459ELY9. No power to the display?

Question edited, toss in a load of CAPS. The capacitor is likely to have failed internally. It can still produce voltage. Or the transformer that supplies power has failed. No one else has recorded this issue https://www.google.com/search?q=LG+Dehumidifier+model+LHD459ELY9.+No+power+to+the+display ..

Can you give a little more detail about the problem? Is it turning on? Is there just no water collecting?

I have a continuous drain hose attached but the tank keeps filling up. What can I do? The unit is only a few months old and works wonderfully,

'make model (what it is)' first 3 words in every question please. You could have three issues. 1. a drain plug not removed 2. an airlock 3. a blockage caused by biofilm gunk. Nasty stuff. Try blowing air UP the drain hose. ..

The dehumidifier runs and collects water. The

My only guess is that there must be a relay inside the control panel that (like many relays) arced ar one time and partially welded itself in the on position. Good quality relays are plated with a high temperature melting point metal to prevent this. Being LG is Goldstar (a Korean company) they most likely use the cheapest relays. To solve this issue the relay needs a hard knock to it. (Don't hit it so hard as to break the circuit-board) :)

The unit starts but the fan dont run

It made no sense to me that despite no visual issues, the fan motor is bad. So, with further research it turns out that the true culprit is the small thermistor/thermal fuse between the orange wire (ground) and motor winding wire. The thermistor is taped underneath the silver aluminium and yellow tape on the fan motor. I heard about this bad (open/no continuity) thermistor makes almost >99% of the fan motor problem regardless of any brand name because this cheap c-fram fan motor is NOT made in USA. I opened the motor, there is a silver (aluminum wrap) around the windings for the motor that needs to be cut. Careful not to cut the motor windings. Inside there is a thermistor or type of temperature sensor connected between the orange wire and a motor winding wire. On my motor this was no longer working.
The part marked "JET 123 NM1 2A 130C" is a thermal fuse. The 130C is the temperature rating. When the motor get hot (130C / 265F) the fuse opens. The circuit is broken and the motor stops.

The motor is still good. The fuse is blown. It must be replaced to get the motor running again. You could bypass the fuse but then you invite a fire hazard.

A replacement fuse is available from Digi-Key. It is a Cantherm SDJ1 DF128S (128C):

Part cost 98 cents

You might want to go with the next higher temp (141C):

Goldair GD2005 dehumidifier. It starts and stops, runs for 1 sec, stops, and the power light flashes. You can hear the relay cycling as it starts and stops.

Question edited for a lot more clarity, add maker, fix English. It sounds like a refrigeration issue like low gas. There are various idea here, but you probably need to drop it off at a refrigeration service centre. https://www.google.com/search?q=gd2005+dehumidifier+starts+and+stops+working ..

Friedrich Dehumidifier D50BPA

Page 3 of the manual refers. The readout shows Relative Humidity in percentage % where 100% would be soaking wet and 20% would be dry. The weather station on my desk show my room is 32% and DRY.
