Where is the filter on this dehumidifier. Mod# ad75ust

To locate the filter: Shut unit off. Remove "bucket". You should find a "tab" at top of where bucket goes in middle front of unit. Pull down to remove tab of Filter. Clean thoroughly and dry Filter before re installation. Visually inspect the coils and condenser while filter is out ( a flashlight helps). If it looks slightly dusty or like covered in felt, then it would be wise to remove front and rear covers and give the coils and condenser a thorough cleaning.

The dehumidifier freezes up and continues to run so it never melts.

Check the air filter. Freeze ups are often caused by low airflow across the cold coil. A dirty air filter can severely restrict air flow. Replace or wash (if a washable type) the filter and allow the dehumidifier coils to defrost completely. Reinstall the filter and be sure to locate the appliance so that air flow in and out of it is not restricted in any way (not up against a wall, behind a door, curtains, etc.) and restart.

If the unit has been run without an air filter, the cooling coil fins are probably choked with dust and dirt. They should be cleaned with a product designed expressly for this purpose such as:


Evaporator coil cleaner is available from many hardware and "big box home supply stores" such as Lowe's or Home Depot.

Use only as directed, and buy filters! it's much easier to replace filters than cleaning coils.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply "4 thumbs up" if it was helpful. Thanks!

My dehumidifier keeps turning off after it runs for about 20 seconds. I cleaned the filter. It still shuts off. Is it the condenser coils? Where are the do I get to them...and how do I clean...

Jules, it may simply be the case of the Humidity extraction level is set to high. Lower it to 32-35% or in the case of your mechanical control, turn it to Maximum and that should make a significant difference. Be sure that you maintain at least 12" of clear air space around the entire unit.

To access the cooling coils, remove the bucket and the filter and you should be able to see them.

Hope this helps you.

My coils are freezing up

Make sure the filter is clean and plenty of air comes through, when coils freeze it is usually caused by low air flow coupled with lots of humidity and low air temperature in the space to be cooled. Clean the filter, fan and gently brush all dust and debris from the intake of the cold coil and retry it. If the basement is already cool and you are trying to dehimidify you should use a dehumidifier that features defrost controls.

LG dehumidifier developing ice

First you would need to clean the filter. LG recommends cleaning the filter every 2 weeks on their dehumidifiers. The second thing you need to do is clean the coils periodically. On this dehumidifier it should include a brush for cleaning the coils. It is located on the top of the bucket. To access the coils the following needs to be done:

1.) Unplug the unit from power
2.) Remove the bucket and also the air filter
3.) Remove the front pannel by removing the 2 lower screws and depressing the tabs.
4.) Once the panel is removed you will see the coils. You need to clean them with the brush. Go in an up and down motion to remove the dirt and dust.

Now use the reverse steps to put it back together. If your dehumidifier runs often I recommend you clean the coils about every 3 to 4 months. This is a common problem on alot of dehumidifiers and people think their dehumidifier is broken. Most of the time the coils are just dirty which causes the water to stay between them and freeze. Keep me posted. Also if you found this response helpful, please rate this solution when you get a chance. Thanks - Tech101

Dehumidifier -- LG LHD45EL

If everything is clean on the coils and the filter is clean it should work. I would contact LG because they have a 5 year warranty on these dehumidifiers. Make sure that you have your reciept. Usually what they will do is locate a shop near you and it can be serviced there. LG will pay the bill. Or if there is no local shop they will send you a service tag for your old unit and ship you a replacement unit. Contact LG and explain this problem to you. Everything should be covered under warranty still.

Good luck - Tech101

Coils Frost up and Bucket never fills

Poston192: You have a refrigerant leakeage in the unit, that's why it's frozen up. If you want to do it yourself, here's what to do: 1. Disconnect power from unit. 2. Remove covers from dehumidifier and locate coils and evaporator units inside. 3. Check for greasy or sticky signs on joints and weldings. 4. Once locate it, re-solder (in case of leakage on weldings) or adjust very tightly the joints. 5. Reassemble and test. SithPitt

Ground fault as soon as I plug it in.

You more than likely have a dead short in the compressor
