Question about Fedders A7DH45B2A Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Ok I have a fedders dehumidifier that I bought at a goodwill, they assured me that they test their appliances to see if it works. Well i turn it on and it seems like all is well but the humidistat reads 20 and I know my basement is not 20 percent. So it does not run. So how do I fix this?

Hi,
If you haven't done so already, try removing and cleaning the inlet filter screen which is almost certainly just behing the inlet grille. If this is blocked with fluff then no moist air will get to the cold pipes, so little or no water will be extracted. There's also a chance that the humidity sensor is clogged with fluff, so fooling the system into thinking the room is pretty dry.

Is the compressor running? A running compressor can usually be detected as a deep throbbing from the machine.
If it is running, but not cooling the pipes, then you may have lost the refrigerant from the system via a leak. If the air coming out of the machine is warm (caused by the compressor running) but there is no water produced this is usually the cause.

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills.
If they do not, please hold off on the rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

SOURCE: The coils are freexing up. How can i fix this?

Make sure your coils are clean and free of restrictions and that the fan is running. If this is ok, then it is probably a leak in the system resulting in low charge. Cost of new dehumidifier will be cheaper than having it repaired.

Buck, as you seem to be aware, Fedders no longer exist as the Fedders you may have been familiar with 8 years ago. Finding manuals and parts, is like looking for a needle in a hay stack. However, the new company Airwell-Fedders may be able to help you. There Customer Support Dept 866-829-2440, is who you need to contact.

There is one other possible source, as some parts are interchangeable. Appliance Factory Parts
http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/airconditioners/fedders/ does carry some of the older Fedders Parts, as well as Maytag. So, that may be worth a try.

Hope this helps you find the parts you need. Good luck and please let me know how it worked out for you. Thanks.

Mine broke recently too, although it's 4 and a half -- also under the 5 year warranty.  Maytag won't honor the warranty claiming that Fedders made it.  Fedders simply won't honor the warranty.  Made in China -- any surprise?  So, now I've got a broken appliance under a warranty that no one will honor.  To make matters worse, no one even fixes Fedders in my area (DC suburbs) and to dispose of it will cost me $40!  I'm thinking of taking it back to Home Depot (where I bought it) and telling them to return it to the manufacturer.  Are there any lawyers out there?  Class action anyone?

My dehumidifier is dead


WIZ huh? NAGEV says:

check the plug!??? - DUH! I also love ...

5) Remove and test the overflow cutoff switch.

6) Remove the humidistat and check it. Replace it if necessary.

7) If the unit still doesn't work, call an appliance repair person!!!

I guess he's only helping the repair person! Who would pay for this kind of advise? The layperson needs details not big words!
