SOURCE: Not collecting water

If everything is running and no water is being produced the system may have lost its refrigerant. There are two motors in dehumidifiers. One is the fan and the other is the compressor. Make sure they are both running.

My Kenmore dehumidifier is set for 65 the display constantly reads 90 and is always running and collecting water the unit never turns off and the display number always stays at 90. What is wrong?


wow it seems you really have a lot of moisture , 1st i suggest you find and seal location of water entry second you might have to consider getting a second unit or a larger unit to work as your primary and save smaller unit for use as a back up
they are rated in Pints per hour the bigger the number the more water they pull out of air sounds as if your gonna need a 60 PPH unit or larger

Btw : 70%rh is considered the "normal" of the avg home
yours at 90 % rh is unhealthy for humans and will promote respatory mold growth and all its complications unit setting of 65% is telling me that unit is too small to handle amount of water you have

IIt may very well be that the the air intake filter needs to be removed and cleaned. But, before doing this, turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Allow the unit to completely thaw, before removing the filter.Never operate the unit without the filter in place, As this could damage the unit.

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have always set my M7DH45B2A at 60 percent (it's in the basement). Lately it runs all the time and the humidity does not go below 65 percent. It seems "stuck" there even if I lower my...


There are 5 basic, but solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

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

4. 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.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 65 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. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

I hope the above helped you. Please let me know and thanks for choosing FixYa.

When the dehumidifier runs it forms ice on the top of the unit and does not collect much water in the bottom.


The problem you described can be caused by 3 things:

1. The air intake filter is dirty or clogged and needs to be removed and cleaned.

2. The cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it before attempting
to clean the coils with warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Then rinse and wipe dry. A light
coating of WD40 will help them stay clean.

3. The dehumidifier is being operated in a basement, where the air temperature at floor level is
below 65 degrees. When this happens dehumidifiers struggle at temps below 65 degrees F
unless it its a Low Temp model, designed for basement applications. Raising the unit up off
the floor onto a sturdy table or counter top, that can hold the weight of the unit, plus a full tank
of water, will generally resolve this problem.

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