    April 1730 dehumidifier

    I am dealing with an Aprilaire 1730 dehumidifier whose compressor does not turn on.

    In test mode, the fan comes on, the compressor appears to struggle to turn on, but instead the unit just shuts off.

    Any thoughts on the next step in troubleshooting this?

    Call a service company/tech. Sorry, this is not a DIY site.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Take it to a mechanic that repairs window a/cs. Suggest you don't give hints for DIY

    Bear Rules: Keep our home <50% RH summer, controls mites/mold and very comfortable.
    Provide 60-100 cfm of fresh air when occupied to purge indoor pollutants and keep window dry during cold weather. T-stat setup/setback +8 hrs. saves energy
    Use +Merv 10 air filter. -Don't forget the "Golden Rule"
