Dehumidifiers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
i do believe you have it right. either you are low on freon 22 or the coil sensor and clip has failed so it can not shut off for cold conditions. the sensor can be tie wrapped back on if it is that, the plactic should not fail
Perfect aire dehumidifier not draining water with hose on
Check that the hose connection is secure and that there aren't any kinks or blockage in the hose. The hose should always slope downward not go vertical or in an upward direction. If the hose is clean and water flows out freely, check the placement of the unit.
The unit not being level could be another factor as to why it's collecting water in the bucket and not out of the drain hose. Make sure that the unit is level. If there is a slight slope to the floor, adjust the unit so that the hose is closest to the drain. In units that were stored for the winter, for an extended period of time or in a highly dusty area, there may be grime build up in the main water outlet that connects to the drain accessories. Use a pipe cleaner to help clear the buildup by inserting the pipe cleaner in the main water outlet.
Is it normal to have cold air coming from the dehumidifier
At his time of year (depending on your location), yes it is normal. I have one in my basement and when winter hits, it will still come on but the compressor doesn't kick in because the humidity level is very low, so I wind up shutting it off for the winter months. It will blow cooler air for the same reasons. The compressor is producing the heat. If just the fan is on it's just circulating the air. Now if you live in FL and have humidity year round and the compressor is not kicking on there may be a problem. Try opening it up and cleaning it out, and definitely clean the filter. Many times when the humidistat isn't working properly, it just needs a good cleaning and it will work fine.
How do I add freon
How do I tell if my soleus air portable air conditioner with heater model PH5-13R-35S needs freon??? It's not blowing very cold air out of it and I checked the filters and I feel like most everything else
