Comfort-Aire is known for their durable consumer appliances, including their dehumidifiers and room air conditioners. With proper care, these appliances can last for years. If your Comfort-Aire appliance appears to be breaking down, it may just need a replacement part.
If you've noticed that your dehumidifier is running constantly, there could be a few different reasons why. Consult your owner's manual and make sure that the size of the appliance is appropriate for its coverage area. If it's trying to handle too large a space, it may simply be unable to keep up. However, if this isn't an issue, then the reason is likely a faulty internal part that's putting your dehumidifier on the fritz.
Your dehumidifier relies on a humidity sensor to monitor the humidity level. If the sensor is dirty or faulty, it may not work properly and cause the unit to inadvertently run all the time even if the air is actually at the proper humidity level. There might also be an issue with the compressor. If the compressor is leaking or broken, it won't be able to remove water from the air, and you'll need to replace the broken part to get your dehumidifier running properly.
