Question about Haier HD456 Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Does the Fan on a Haier HD456E always run,

And if so is this how all newer dehumidifiers work? My old unit would totally shut off when the desired humidity level was reached. The unit seems to be working fine I can hear the compressor kick on and off at different times during the day but the fan always runs. If the fan runs all the time is this not costing me a lot in electricity? Do they make units that will shut down totally to save on electric?

    Also, is there any way to turn off the fan when the compressor turns off? What exactly does the timer do on this model?

I believe the fan is designed to run all the time, and no, it costs very little to run an 18w fan. You can use a timed socket, or switch it on and off when needed. I don't believe the Haier has specific switching times.

If the evaporator coils behind the filters become too dirty condensation can be seriously ********. Check to see if the fins require any attention; they can be cleaned very carefully with a toothbrush and some water usually. If the buildup has become severe special chemicals need to be used on the unit- not something recommended the average person attempt. If the fins are clear check other airflow issues. Dehumidifiers generally need a period of 3 days to balance an area properly when functioning and sized appropriately.

You are setting the temperature to low. Dehumidifiers do not work well between 40 - 60 degrees F. That's why the word "LO" keeps showing up. Raise the temperature setting and set the humidity extraction level (Arrow Down) at 30-32%. In fact, if you can disregard the temperature setting and the unit will work, do so. That seems to be the fly in the ointment, when it comes to getting everything to work as it should.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

It could be what you say or it could be that the humidification extraction level is set too High. Try lowering the extraction percentage to 32 - 35%.

If that doesn't help and you'd like to order replacement control board/panel. Call Haier Parts and Technical Support 877-337-3639. But, you may find it cheaper to replace the unit, then repair it.

Haier HDN655E unit runs but compressor won't kick in

use a jumper cord and go directly to the compressor to see if it will run. if it don't run, open up the motor box and see if there is a klixon overload inside. this should be normally closed. if it isn't replace it. the klixon is a thermal overload cutout. it usually trips because of high winding temperatures and protects the motor inside. the compressor is a hermetically sealed unit. no, or little freon will cause the motor to overheat.
