Question about LG DH404E Dehumidifier
10 min compressor stays running then about 10 min fan comes back on.uint is working is this uint ok. lg dh404e
SOURCE: model DH404e/gd40e
It might be worth checking the intake screen to make sure it isn't clogged with fluff. Also, the on / off switching is often linked in with an ice-detector and a humidity sensor and if either of these have come loose from where they should be problems may arise.
One rather unlikely possibility, from your description of the fault, is that the microswitch for the "bucket full" detector is defective.
I have one machine with a defective humidity sensor and it will only run when I select "continuous" running as opposed to "60% humidity".
If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing ability! If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further.

Your unit is probably operating in defrost mode. When you use a dehumidifier in a cold room, the condensing coils can freeze water. The unit senses this and thus stops the compressor until the water frozen on the coils melts. Then it resumes its cycle. This is a problem you will have during the winter months. It makes the operation of the unit inefficient, but this is otherwise normal behavior.
