Question about LG LHD45EL Dehumidifier

Open Question

LG Dehumidifier Model # LHD 45EL

Purchased this machine in Oct or Nov, 2006.

Upon entering our beach home, this machine was very hot to touch and it was making a hot smell, and sounding like a grinding noise. I suspected that a motor or something inside the housing has disintegrated. I immediately unhooked the machine. The bucket was empty, since it was connected to a hose and entered the crawlspace which was normal. I have enjoyed this machine, and it did collect alot of moisture in this seldom used beach home. I purchased it a Lowes Home Improvement store for $169 or $199. Unfortunately, I cannot find the instruction manual or even the receipt and exact date of purchase. What can I do now. There is a 5 year warranty. How can I use the warranty? Can I send the machine to a factory representative for repair? Please help. The cold and wet weather season is about to begin.

SOURCE: Hi, I have an LG

Try to see if operating the float lever by hand can make it turn off the 'bucket full' message. Maybe use a rubber band or tape to keep it in the on position vs. the 'bucket full' off position.

Check to see if the bucket has to be inserted for the unit to operate, and if the bucket has a nozzle to hook a hose up to at the bottom. I have a dehumidifier of a different brand that has this feature that works with the bucket in, but with the drain nozzle on the bucket connected to a plastic tube that leads to a drain for continuous operation without having to empty the bucket.

How is your hose attached to the unit if it isn't attached to the bucket?

Good luck on this repair.

I have a LHD 459ELT9 dehumidifier. Is this the high or low temperature model? I am dehumidifing a root cellar and the temperature is normally about 50-55 degrees.


Mike, the LT in the model number, usually indicates that it's a low temperature model. If you root cellar has an unpaved or unfinished floor, I would highly recommend that you raise the dehumidifier at least up a foot or two, off the floor. As the ground temperature is colder than the air temperature at shoulder level. Plus, it will help keep insects and critters out of it. Use something sturdy, that can handle the weight of the unit, plus a full bucket of water. Even if you are going to use the hose drain feature, rather than the bucket, I would still get it up off the floor.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

I just purchased a second-hand LG 45 pint dehumidifier. I need an owner's manual, free if possible........ Thanks


Jenifay, take good care of your dehumidifier and do all the routine maintenance that is recommended in the Owners Manual. As this model has been discontinued.

The following link will take you to LG's Knowledge Base. On the right of the page, you will see Dehumidifier Manual English. Click on that, and you can download and print the manual for a 45 pint LHD4SEL Dehumidifier.

Since I was able to get you a free manual, would you be kind enough to rate my response to you?
Thanks.

My LG Dehumidifier's fan does not seem to be operating. The filter is clean, the motor runs, but no air circulates through the machine and no water collects in the bucket. I bought it on 10/22/2006.

I have an lg dehumidifier LHD 45EL. The humidity reading reads 15% higher than a stand alone humidistat and the unit will go on for a short time even though the set humidity level is 70%. What gives?


Possibly the primary humidity sensor behind right side grill. Unit MUST be unplugged from outlet. Take right side grill out, unplug sensor from wire socket and plug back. If no help, you need new sensor.
