im in the suspicion that since you turned it upside down , some or possibly a lot of stored up water has gotten into the sensor section now , this might take several days of it running in what to remove and dry it all out , or might never recover as it's not a good idea to turn any item containing a gas compressor up side down , as this forces lube oils into the wrong places inside them
for the most part humidity sensors are not consumer (resettable)
Actually, the fan shouldn't be working if the water bucket is not installed properly. So, I believe it's more of a case of the electronic controls need to be reset.
To accomplish this, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes. After the time as elapsed, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The Bucket Full light should not, now be ON. And the unit can function as it should, after you reset the controls for maximum humidity extraction (32 - 35%).
Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
I have this model, and mine failed after 2 years. Fortunately it has a 5 year warranty on it. If you haven't cleaned the filter in the front, do that first. Take the bucket out, and then you can pull the filter down. In my case, I was getting an ice block on the front coils, and the warranty place determined it was a bad compressor. LG sent a refurbished model as a replacement for my broken one, and then I had to ship the bad one back in the box they provided. They also provided a return shipping label.
Vinegar is the proper way to clean all parts of a humidifier. It stops scale and kills bacteria and fungus. It can be processed through the heating element without any adverse effects. Thank you, James. -------Please vote 4 thumbs up 4 me!!!----------
