To my knowledge this is not normal. It probably is a little low on refrigrent but to verify that be sure the air path is clean and the fan is operationg properly. Low air flow would also cause that type of problem.

Westinghouse Heavy Duty 25 Dehumidifier frost on coils


MIKE - I have the same problem...previously, there was NEVER any frost, and the unit worked just fine. Now, all of a sudden in the last week, frost has been forming...water no longer traverses thru the tube into the sink...and the unit is basically useless/

I think when the original person said "frost", they meant ICE!

What can I do to prevent my Dehumidifier from building up a heavy coating of frost over all the condensing tubes. The dehumidifier is currently located in the basement.


The frost is requried for the unit to do it's work. The unit should routinely turn off and the ice should melt. without this process no water would be removed from the air....

I have a ebac bd80 and the coils stay frosted ,


Frost means one of two things, low refrigerant or low airflow across the coil. The unit probably has lost it's refrigerant charge ( or some of it's charge) even though it hasn't been used.

My dehu has frost on coils most of the the


if the room air is cooler than the dehumidifier then they will frost over. normally frosting over means loss of freon but because it is a closed system there probably isn't. if the air's moisture level [humidity] is low then don't even run the machine.

Most dehumidifiers have a "Frost Guard" mounted on the condensor coil. If frost accumulates on the condensor coil the frost guard turns the compressor off until the frost melts, then comes back on again. For the dehumidifier to work properly, the surrounding (ambient), temperature must be higher than 65 degress. This temperature allows the moisture in the air to condense on the coils and drip into the reservoir without freezing up on the condensor coil. Also, if the humidity is too low, (below 45%), the same condition will occur. So it will help to keep the parameters in mind when you have this issue.

Thank you for your allowing me to advise you on this issue.

The following statement is a parameter for all dehumidifiers and some of the control issues may vary, but the theory is the same.

Most dehumidifiers have a "Frost Guard" mounted on the condensor coil. If frost accumulates on the condensor coil the frost guard turns the compressor off until the frost melts, then comes back on again. For the dehumidifier to work properly, the surrounding (ambient), temperature must be higher than 65 degress. This temperature allows the moisture in the air to condense on the coils and drip into the reservoir without freezing up on the condensor coil. Also, if the humidity is too low, (below 45%), the same condition will occur. So it will help to keep the parameters in mind when you have this issue.
If your model does not employ a "Frost-Guard" the condition you describe will avail itself when the above parameters are not met.
Simply unplug, or turn off the unit, until the above parameters are met or exceeded.
