My dehumidifier Model # AD5OUSV was plugged (in after being in its box for the winter) and it is running with the fan but does not produce any water even though the humidity is 60% in the basement. It has worked every year in the same location at this time of year and basement temperature. There are few parts to examine - other than the bucket and hose - there is mention of the "deicer"- can you tell me where I can examine this deicer?JA: How long has this been going on?

I have a whynter Rpd-70WP dehumidifier. My 2 year old

I have a whynter Rpd-70WP dehumidifier. My 2 year old dropped a bunch of q-tips into the air out vent (which leads to the blower) and now the blower motor no longer runs. I've disassembled the until and removes the q-tips, and looked for any obvious points of disconnect, but I'm not seeing anything causing the blower motor not to run. I have not (yet) disassembled the squirel cage from the motor. The unit is not throwing any errors, and when plugged in, the compressor unit runs and the coils get cold - so that portion appears to be working fine.

I just bought a used Idylis air conditioning unit model

I just bought a used Idylis air conditioning unit model #RPAC12EA.It has a hose for draining water out the back when using the dehumidifier, but even when I don't use the dehumidifier aspect and only use the air conditioning, there is a ton of water that comes out of that hose. (About one drop every second, sometimes more). Is this normal?Also, although I set the temperature to 73°, it will never drop below 80°.The unit is almost brand new and the last owner did not mention any problems with it. I'm rather useless when it comes to knowing anything about appliances. Any help would be great. Thanks!
