Hello! Is your Ebac 2650e dehumidifier not collecting any water in the container? If you’re experiencing this issue, then click here for some great tips.
Are you sure it is on? Yes, it is on. And it isn’t collecting water.
Perhaps the area isn’t as humid as you thought it was.
There’s mold in the room.
The mold might be fed by a single leaky pipe or drain path, not general humidity in the room.
What could be wrong with it?
If the dehumidifier isn’t collecting water, maybe it is because the humidity level is what you set it at.
No, it should still be going.
Dehumidifiers usually have a sensor to turn it off when the reservoir is full. It may not be collecting more water because it says it has enough.
The reservoir is not full.
If it has more room in the reservoir, that sensor may be broke. Or the sensor may just be so wet from condensate it only thinks the thing is full.
I never thought I’d need to dry out the dehumidifier to get it to work. What else could it be?
The dehumidifier may be freezing up.
Oh, it’s running.
The problem may be ice forming on the units where it is supposed to simply collect condensate. While ice usually forms in the first ten minutes or so of operation, that should melt and it starts collecting water out of the air.
How do I fix that?
Let the coils air out and thaw out once in a while. And make sure the initial frost thaws in the first place.
I never thought I’d need to de-ice a de-humidifier.
If the ice doesn’t thaw, and the unit always runs, you’re wasting electricity without improving the humidity level.
Any other ideas as to what could cause it?
If you have a general house dehumidifier and use it in a basement, it may turn off because the temperature is too low to run effectively.
I need to talk to a repair tech to look at it.
Whether it is a mechanical failure or sensor problem, that would be something to have a tech take care of.
