Just fixed mine. Problem on mine was with the POT. The POT on the unit varies the humidity control. Remove the drawer and remove the two screws for the cover then take a straight screwdriver and carefully pop the tabs open to remove the front cover. You can test with a multimeter set to ohms and check if the POT is good. I used some electronics cleaner spray and worked the POT back and forth several times. Check Radioshack for the cleaner. You may also find a replacement POT there. Some at amazon also: http://www.amazon.com/Parts-Express-500-Ohm-Potentiometer/dp/B0002KRE16
If it still does not work check the fuse in the top right corner in the back of the unit housed inside a metal box. You will have to remove the back and the entire metal cover to get access to it.

Maybe the reservoir is full of water and the emergency shut off float switch has killed power to the machine to keep from running water everywhere. Just a guess.

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.

if this is the correct picture - pull out the collection bucket and reach just inside the opening at the top (just at the bottom of the grill in the front) the filter is plastic and pulls straight down. Clean it tin soapy water, dry it, and slide it back it place.

I don't have the manual and need to replace and/or clean the air filter on my Goldstar DH304. Where do I find it on the appliance?

Is Part # 3850A20500F one of this model? my unit


I found the model # on my Goldstar DH304 at the top of a sticker on the inside of the unit behind the bucket. Mine has stopped working too. I'm awaiting an answer to my problem but after some research it seems that unless the filter and/or coils simply need cleaned, there is lttle that can be economically repaired. Good luck.

Goldstar dehumidifier model # DH305


I had this problem on a similar model. There is a pressure switch the tank when full pushes in, sometimes mine would stick. A little graphite for key locks was my remedy. Had to clean it up some though. Good luck!

Only if ground wire had tuch something that was hot. Does your unit have a ground fault plug. If so reset plug. Sometimes thay go bad if you have had a storm in the area.
