Question about Goldstar DH504EL Dehumidifier

GHD30 dehumidifier completely dead

I have a Goldstar GHD30 dehumidifier approximately 2 years old. It had recently been leaking a blue green fluid like substance from underneath. Now it seems completely dead. I've checked my circuit breaker, the outlet, the dehumidifier filter, coils evrything inside looks fine except nothing runs. The fan, condenser nothing runs. Could it have leaked freon? If so would this prevent the fan from working too? Could I have multiple issues? Is it worth having someone come out and look at it or do I just need to buy a new one? Thanks, Eric

    I have a GHD30 dehumidifier purchased from Home Depot April 2008. The unit was used for one summer and stored. It is now completely dead and will not do anything. I've cleaned the filters and the coils. The light came on briefly when the tray was out of the unit. I put the tray back in and it made a faint noise for about 3 seconds. I've got it apart now and can't see any disconnected wires. Kind of dissapointing since this is just one month out of warranty.

If any machine is completely electrically dead it is a sign that there is no electrical voltage getting through to operate it. Using an electric meter it is a relatively easy task to find the point of differential voltages which would indicate where the open circuit is located. The blue green fluid found is from copper oxide and is not necessarily indicative of a refrigerant leak. Oil present would be an indicator of a refrigerant leak.

Hi

You need to check that the bucket is clean and that the sensor for the water level in the bucket is clean.

An old toothbrush and some warm soapy water can sometimes achieve a great result.

Failing this you may need a new sensor, be careful and either draw or photo the old wiring route with your cell phone to make it easier to fit the new sensor

Hope this helps

Won't come on


Definitely check the air filter, it has a sensor and will stop working if it's dirty. Easy to clean by running water through it.

yes cycles should be longer either that or the unit is keeping close to desired humidity. Also the unit is under sized 30 pint is for 400sqft. or 20 by 20 room. humidity should be 30/50 percent check your level desired room temp is 70 degrees but its a basemnt 60 works.

I have a Goldstar GHD30 dehumidifier. I have not used it in awhile. I plugged it in to run it today and it does not turn on. I cleaned the screen and tried different outlets, nothing works. HELP!


Check the condensate collection bucket. If the bucket is not inserted correctly the dehumidifier might think the bucket is full and thus not turn on.
