Dehumidifiers

 
  1. My dehumidifier won't run.
  2. The dehumidifier runs continually but doesn't seem to remove moisture / does not "dehumidify".
  3. Water drips from my unit.
  4. My heating or air conditioning is off, but the dehumidifier continues to run.
  5. My dehumidifier removes some water, but not as much as expected.
 

My dehumidifier won't run.

Check for the following:
  1. Verify there is power to the unit.
  2. Check that any disconnect switch is in the ON position.
  3. Check that the circuit breaker is not tripped (a separate 15 amp circuit breaker is recommended).
  4. Verify the dehumidistat is not turned to OFF.
  5. Verify low voltage wiring between heating and air conditioning system and dehumidifier is correct.
 
 

The dehumidifier runs continually but doesn't seem to remove moisture / does not "dehumidify".

Check for the following:
  1. The filter may be dirty.  Check and clean if necessary.
  2. The dehumidistat may be set at an unrealistically low setting.  Reset it to approximately 50% RH.
  3. Temperatures below 60º or average of 50% RH can cause poor or no production.
  4. If you've just begun using your dehumidifier, give it a little more time.
 

Water drips from my unit.

Look for the following:
  1. Ensure the unit is level.
  2. Verify condensate drain is properly trapped.
  3. Check for a plugged condensate trap or condensate line.
  4. Checked for a blocked filter or iced coil.
 

My heating or air conditioning is off, but the dehumidifier continues to run.

This is normal operation as long as there is power to the dehumidifier.
 
 
 
 
 

My dehumidifier removes some water, but not as much as expected.

The following might be occurring:
  1. The air temperature or humidity has dropped.
  2. The air filter may be dirty or airflow is restricted.  Check both and clean / remove obstruction if necessary.
  3. The dehumidifier coils might be dirty.
  4. There may be air leaks, such as a loose cover or panel; or leaks in the duct work.
