Water Tank Problem
Sometimes the most annoying problems are easily solved and once you know how to solve these problems you can easily rectify them if they do occur again.
The main dehumidifier problem that we hear about is that the ‘tank full’ light lights up and the dehumidifier doesn’t work. Often this problem occurs just after the water tank has been emptied and is not full of water at all!
The solution is very simple of course. In almost all circumstances we have found that the water tank was incorrectly inserted back into the dehumidifier. The dehumidifier will only work if the water tank is fitted properly (to avoid spillage). A simple wiggle and slight push on the water tank normally resolves the problem.
Common Dehumidifier Faults (and Their Solutions!)
The dehumidifier troubleshooting tips below are off a general nature only as each model of dehumidifier differs. If you can’t find a solution to your problem beow then refer to the instruction manual above.
If you can’t fix the problem after refering to the manual then call the manufacturer.
- The Dehumidifier does not work
Check to see if the unit is plugged into wall socket. If it’s not then plug it in.
Is the power on in the house? If there’s no power wait for power to come back on.
2. Dehumidifier has stopped dehumidifying
Ensure that the water bucket is empty and fitted correctly (as described above)
Ensure that the air filter is clean (remember the filter should be cleaned every few weeks when the unit is being used often).
Is the temperature of the room too low for the dehumidifier to operate. Compressor dehumidifiers see a large suffering of extraction rates in temperatures off below 10°C while desiccant should work in temeratures down to 1°C due to lack of compressor parts.
Also check to see if the humidity of the room is too low for dehumidifier to operate. If the dehuidiifer was set to dehumidifiy down to 50% RH and the current RH is 47% then the dehumidifier may not function.
3. Dehumidifier works but there’s only very little water in tank
Check to see if the air filter is blocked.
The dehumidifier is too small for the house or room.
Some windows and doors are open providing too much ventiation
4. Can’t remove condensation from windows or condensation has returned
Windows are now colder due to lower outside air temperature. The solution is to run your dehumidifier on full power until the outise air teperature increases.
5. Desiccant dehumidifier gives off burning like smell on first use.
This is normal and is caused by the zeolite burning the room vapours such as perfume, cigarette smoke etc.
The smell will disappear after the first few uses.
6. Dehumidifier blows out warm air
This is entirely normal as dehumidifiers heat air before blowing it back into the room.
7. Knocking noise coming from desiccant dehumidifier
More lubrication is needed on the motor that runs the desiccant wheel.
The solution is to run the unit in Laundry Mode for two days to increase lubrication. If the knocking sound persists return the unit to the manufacturer with warranty slip if available.
8. Alarm light ‘on’ or flashing
The air flow is impeded so check that the filter is clean. Also ensure that the unit is located away from the wall so that air can swirl around the unit.
Check that the temperature of the room is not too cold for the dehumidifier to operate efficiently.
9. Water not draining down continuous drainage hose
Ensure that the dehumidifier is placed on a level surface and that the hose is fitted properly and not kinked.
Negative air pressure may be pulling the water back up the hose. Fix this by inserting a small hole in the hose 30cm from the dehumidifier to allow extra air in which will remedy the problem.
10. Water is spilling onto the floor
Check that the water tank is not cracked and ensure that the dehumidifier is on a level surface.
11. The fan still runs after I turn my desiccant dehumidifier ‘off’
This is entirely normal.
Do not turn of the unit at the wall socket until the fan has stopped rotating completely.
12. Dehumidifier runs but no air comes out of the unit
The dehumidifier could be in ‘sleep’ mode. Some units have an energy-conservation mode such as the Control Logic feature in Meaco models. When the selected relative humidity has been reached the unit goes to ‘sleep’ until the RH rises. Once the RH rises the machine will wake up and continue working
It is also possible that the fan motor may have burned out. if so, replace the fan motor.
