Dehumidifier quit


I run a dehumidifier in my garage because I have bare steel in there most of the time. I had it on this spring and went out there and it was a big block of ice. Now the fan runs, but it doesn't remove any humidity. Is it worth messing with or time for a new one? TIA

Dehumidifier quit


buy a new one, dehumidifiers are pretty much a throw away item these days.

Dehumidifiers work pretty much like air conditioners: when the refrigerant is low the coil will freeze up. And pretty much a disposable item.
