Take cover off. First check the fuse on the circuit board. If it's blown replace it. That should get the motor running, the motor might be or is going out. If the motor is bad you'll have to replace the motor. If the fuse is good and the motor is good, unhook the wires on circuit board that go to the humidity control switch. If the unit comes on with the humidity control switch unhooked, you'll have to replace the humidity control switch. Sears has them for about $11.50. Hope this helps.

Only available for DjVu reader (download link on LG site). You'll need to download and install the plugin then close and relaunch your browser. I was only able to get it to work in IE in the end with Firefox and Chrome not working. IE objected I had to "allow" the plugin to run then once again close and relaunch the browser then it finally worked. Good Luck!

How do i hook up plastic attachment so i am able to run a hose to a drain for continual usuage DH404E


Most brands have a fitting molded into the drain pan that will let you attach a garden hose to the tank. You may have to drill a hole in the fitting to allow the water to drain through.

Model DH404e/gd40e


Hi,
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.
Cheers, D

Goldstar dehumidifier won't stay on


Check the relative humidity in the room or space where you are operating the dehumidifier. Damp feeling and actual humidity level are two separated items. Humidifiers will run for a few minutes until it is signaled that the humidity is already low enough and then shut down.
