Question about LG LHD65EBL Dehumidifier

LHD65EBL Code CH 01

I have the LG Humidifier model listed above and it suddenly began showing CH in one of the two windows for humidity and 01 in the other. Powering down the unit, even for 24 hours, does not result in a reset. The bucket is almost empty. The manual has nothing about such codes, what they mean or what to do to clear them. Anyone have a solution?

    I have the exact same problem. One day the machine seemed to get warmer than normal and we then had the bucket full blinking red light with CH in one of the two windows with 01 in the other. This unit is less than one year old.

I had the same problem, and I wound up calling LG's customer support line. The rep I spoke with says that the "CH" code means that the internal thermostat is not able to accurately read the air temperature, and the unit will require servicing.

She gave me a couple of numbers for local folks, and I'll call them in the next day or so, but I'm thinking that this may not be worth the repair, unless it's pretty cheap: I bought the unit for under $100 less than 9 months ago, and I'm not eager to shell out a bunch of money to get it repaired.

I have an LG model LHD65EBL dehumidifier. The humidistat will not change from 70 when I push either + or -. The fan runs well and the compressor sounds like it is running well Some water comes out when the...


Prt of the problem may be a dirty or clogged air intake filter.

Turn the unit OFF and unplug, it before removing the filter to check and clean it.
You can ether vacuum it or if it's really dirty & clogged, wash it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly, shake off access water and allow it to dry completely, before reinstalling it.
Never operate the unit without the filter in place. As this could damage the unit.

Plug the unit back in and turn it ON. Try lowering the humidity extraction level now, using the arrow down button. For a very damp, humid basement application 35% is a good setting to start with for several days.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hi, When I tried to start my dehumidifier, it won't work and indicate CH 01. The bucket is totally empty and in good place. What this CH 01 means?


Your model is no longer in manufacture or available. However, I was able to locate the Owners Manual for you. It does not list a CH 01 Error Code, but does list other reasons why your unit want turn ON.

In the past, I have recommended turning the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplugging the unit for 12-15 minutes. This will give the unit time to hopefully, reset itself. Then Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity control as you normally would. If it successfully reset itself, it should operate normally.

If you continue to have problems, contact LG Customer Support at 800-243-0000.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

The bucket full light flashes even though its empty and inserted correctly and the humidity level is stuck at 1%. The unit as a whole just seemed to stop working.


I have the exact same problem. I suspect this is the same as the "CH 01" problem others had with a different unit that seemed to be the bucket switch. I still need to confirm.

Hi

The tank may be full. Your dehumidifier has a safety device that turns off the dehumidifier when the water tank is full. Usually the tank itself either presses against a switch or there's a device connected to the tank that triggers a switch when the tank is in place and full.


If you've emptied the tank and the unit doesn't run, inspect the place where the tank rests to see if there's a switch or mechanism that's not being activated. You may be able to turn it on with a simple flick of your finger.

Take care.

I need hose connection


Store bought products like these are extremely hard to get parts. Your best bet is to contact the manufacturer, but don't expect much assistance from them.
