      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

    Is there an inexpensive way to convert a humidifier to a DEhumidifier? Thank you

  6. Hey guys - my 6 year old Haier dehumidifier (HDN305) would not wake up after it's 6 month winter nap - no lights, no fan, no compressior. After verifying it was plugged into a hot outlet (118v) I removed the cover and tested various aspects of the control board connections. The fuse is good and has power (118v). I tried running with the humidity level/power on/off control in both open & closed states. I also tried the same with the bucket full control and what I think is a copper coil temperature monitor. No respondo in all cases. Is there anything else to check or any definitive repair I can apply before I send it to the recycle center? TIA
  7. My dehumidifier is not staying on. After finally realizing it had a filter and the filter was filthy, I cleaned that out. The dehumidifier will turn on but not stay on. I have tried various settings, including fan on high, controller set to maximum drying. It has stayed on as long as 13 minutes then shuts off for hours. Then it will come on for 2-3 minutes and shut off for hours. This was on an 80 degree day, raining. The basement was warm and humid. Prior to this problem, the "off" was not working. When I would turn the machine off, it would keep running. The "off" still doesn't work. In order to turn it off, I pull out the bucket which makes the auto shut off light come on then unplug it. The unit is probably five years old. I run it in the spring and fall when it is extremely humid and/or raining. Any ideas? I think the sensor might be the problem but I don't know where to look for it.
