Dehumidifiers are a great way to dry out your home, but they can also be dangerous if you don’t know what to look for. If your dehumidifier is blowing hot air, it may not be able to properly remove moisture from the air. In this article we will discuss some common reasons why this could be happening and how you can fix it!
Dehumidifier Blowing Hot Air
- The dehumidifier is blowing warm air.
- The unit is not working properly.
- The unit is making too much noise and not removing enough moisture from the air, which can be caused by a number of factors:
- A dirty filter, which should be replaced regularly (or even more often than that) to keep your dehumidifier running smoothly; if you notice any white dust coming out of your drain port—which could indicate that you need to clean it out—you may also want to take this into consideration as well. If you notice any other signs that suggest something isn’t right with your unit’s performance, contact a professional for help troubleshooting!
Where to start with your dehumidifier
- Check the water bucket. The water in your dehumidifier should be clear, not cloudy. If there’s any sediment in the bucket, it can clog up your dehumidifier and cause it to stop working properly.
- Check the drain hose. The drain hose connects from your unit’s air intake vent to its air exhaust vent so that any excess moisture can be released from inside of the unit and carried away by air flow through this pipe (see diagram below). If there are any cracks or holes in either area where these connections should be made—or if there is loose caulking—this could lead to leakage and ultimately damage over time!
- Check filter condition: Use your fingers/tweezers if necessary; place one finger on top of each filter while holding down firmly on top side with tweezers until you hear clicking noises indicating they’re fully seated again after being shifted around during installation process; repeat process at bottom side until all four filters have been reinstalled properly into respective slots within cabinet housing structure itself.”
Common reasons that your dehumidifier is blowing hot air
- Check the water bucket.
- Check the air filter.
- Check the drain hose.
- Check the humidistat and make sure it’s set properly (usually around 40%). If not, change it in accordance with your local building codes or refer to our instructions for adjusting your dehumidifier’s settings for more information on how to do so. Also make sure that no moisture is being pulled into your home from outside sources like an air conditioner or heating system, as this could also cause excessive humidity buildup inside your home and lead to similar problems with blowing hot air from within it as well!
Why did your dehumidifier start blowing hot air in the first place?
If your dehumidifier is blowing hot air, it’s possible that the problem may be due to one of these issues:
- The dehumidifier is not working properly.
- The fan vent has become blocked or clogged.
- There is an issue with the compressor (the part that cools down water from condensation).
It is important to figure out why the hot air is being blown
It is important to figure out why the hot air is being blown. The dehumidifier needs to be repaired, cleaned or replaced with a new model if it isn’t working properly.
You have several options when trying to fix your own dehumidifier:
- Repair the unit yourself by replacing parts that are damaged or broken. This can be done by removing small screws from around parts of the machine and then unscrewing them until they come out of their holes in order for you to take them apart and clean them as needed (you may also need some tools). Make sure all parts are cleaned thoroughly before reassembling!
- If you don’t have any experience repairing items like this, call an experienced professional who’ll do everything necessary for repair including ordering replacement parts if necessary; however sometimes even these professionals don’t know how best handle certain situations so just remember one thing above all else: safety first! Before beginning any task involving electricity (including plugging in), make sure there aren’t wires near areas where children might play; otherwise accidents could happen quickly which could result in serious injury due both physical harm caused by burns/electrical shock being exposed directly onto bare skin surfaces plus psychological trauma caused by seeing someone else get hurt badly enough over something seemingly trivial like putting up Christmas lights outside their home during summertime heat waves coming down from northern hemisphere weather patterns!
