Amana dehumidifiers efficiently remove moisture from the air to help protect your basement during warmer, humid months. Precision sensors and controls on Amana dehumidifiers help keep the basement dry while saving you money on energy costs. When your Amana dehumidifier isn't collecting water as it should, get the parts you need to fix the problem at Sears PartsDirect.
Collection bucket. The collection bucket is a container that’s positioned under the evaporator to collect the condensate water from the evaporator.
Electronic control board. The dehumidifier electronic control board controls the major electro-mechanical components in the dehumidifier. The electronic control board monitors input from the humidistat and activates the compressor to dehumidify the space when humidity exceeds the level the user sets. Input from the thermistor (temperature sensor) on the evaporator is also used to detect frost on the evaporator. The electronic control board shuts off the compressor when excessive frost builds up on the evaporator. With the compressor shut off, the frost melts and the condensate water drips into the collection bucket. Once the fins are clear of frost, the electronic control board restarts the compressor if the space needs dehumidification.
Evaporator fan. The evaporator fan blows air across the evaporator and condenser heat exchangers to aid cooling and dehumidification.
Humidistat. The dehumidifier humidistat is a sensor that detects the water vapor or percent of humidity in the room. The humidistat provides input to the dehumidifier’s electronic control board through a wire harness connection.
What to do if your Amana dehumidifier leaks water
If the dehumidifier is leaking water, make sure the collection bucket is in the correct position and check the collection bucket for cracks. Make sure the drain hose connection is tight, if a drain hose is installed.
