Dehumidifier won't turn on

After empting the bucket and putting it back into the unit, the machine won't turn on. The bucket full light is blinking (it has never done that before) and the present/set% indicator windows state "CH"/"01". Does anyone know the answer?

Re: dehumidifier won't turn on

Make sure the buicket is seated all the way. Sometimes it doesnt fully engage on the left side. If it is then it may need to be serviced. LG has a 5 year warranty on these models. They usually will tell you of a service center nearby which will service it free of charge since it is under warranty. If you do not live near a service center they may ship you a replacement and you send your old dehumidifier back to them. Make sure you have your reciept when you contact them so they can verify it is under 5 years old.

Try resetting the bucket, making sure that it is set properly and triggers the safety lever/switch. If that doesn't solve the problem. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF, unplug the unit from the wall outlet and wait 12-15 minutes. Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. If the bucket is installed properly, the unit should revert back to the original factory settings.

Hope this helps solve the problem.
