Kenmore dehumidifier 580.51450100

1 post in this topic

Hello. I am trying to figure out why the subject dehumidifier isn't working correctly. It seems to run for a few minutes (fan, compressor, and produces some water) then stops (fan and compressor as far as I can tell). Sometimes adjusting the settings on the electronic control panel starts it running for another few minutes but it should be running much more considering the humidity is high in the room and I am setting it on 30%.

Of course replacing these things isn't too expensive but I am wondering where to start on troubleshooting this one. Maybe the humidity sensor or electronic control can be bypassed?
