    Same problem. After 1 year of operation, the compressor does not turn on. Any ideas to fix the problem?

    I purchased my LHD45EL from Home Depot. It comes with a 5year warranty and it's been replaced twice. It's a great unit, but only seems to last a year. Call LG, go through the hassle of bringing to a repair shop to certify that is is broken and they will send you a new one. These units are priced right, work very well, but don't last. Unfortunately, Consumer Reports and others rate a product when it's brand new.

    My LG (LHD45ELY6) is not collecting any water but fan runs and compressor seem to be running (has an anoying loud groaning sound). Does LG have an 800 number to call for warranty service? Can't find the documents that came with it.

Bring it back for warranty and they will send you a new one. The warranty is 5 years for everything. These LG units have a defective design and I was told the evaporator (or parts thereof) rust and leak. My repair store had rows of LGs in for repair. Most people avoid the hassle and buy another brand. If you have the time to call LG, bring it to a repair shop, wait for an assessment, call back LG for a replacement, you'll get a replacement. But you may have to do it all over again next year -- and until your warranty expires.

This has been my experience as well. I am on my second unit and both worked for about a year. Unfortunately, I didn't have the receipt for the first unit, but I made sure to save it for this one. I was told to brush the coils and clean the filter, but I don't think that will fix my problem, as it did not last time. I'll be calling LG back soon and taking it to my local authorized repair shop.

Everything seems to run fine, just hasn't pulled a drop of water


remove the back airfilter, and touch the tubes while the unit is running, if nice and cold, all is well, there just isnt any moisture there. but if compressor is running and tubes are warm , means freon/coolant has leaked out

Will not turn on


Boys and girls, I hate to tell you this -- but those units are DEAD. I had the same problems as being discussed here (not turning on, electronic chirp, bucket full signals), but with one other important feature -- the unit became so hot that I couldn't touch the top. At first it sounded and smelled like the fan was jammed, and later it sounded like the compressor wasn't working.

Anyway, after two weeks of dealing with LG (1-800-243-0000, and be prepared to call back several times as they have a phone problem), they have finally decided to refund me the money on my unit. Give them a call and speak to them. Also, as my unit was intermittently working, I would recommend that you unplug your malfunctioning unit if you are having these problems. A dead dehumidifier is one thing, a house fire is quite another thing.
