Re: no lights, won't turn on

I had same symptom on DH404EY7, a beep but no lights, and no other noise. Disassembled and checked fuse - was OK and put it back in. Then brushed all the dust from the exposed side of the control and display board (need to first remove the front panel). I noticed there was some corrosion between the solder balls where the 10+ wire harness connects. I gently scratched between the solder balls with a screwdriver and plugged it back in again. I held the power button for about ten seconds. It powered up and gave lights. Indicated ON. Some buttons still don't work but at least it now runs. Can change humidity but can't change fan speed.

I suggest checking the fuse on the circuit board.

We just bought the DE45EJ. We removed it from the box and plugged it in....nothing. No lights, no beeps, no hint of life. The power source is good. The room temperature is normal. The bucket isn't full...

If you just purchased and it won't turn ON, don't waste time trying to fix the unit. Return it to the place of purchase for a replacement unit or a refund.

You may have the humidity extraction level set to HIGH. Try lowering the humidity extraction level to 35% or if you have an analog unit, turn the control knob to maximum. Also cleaning the air intake filter may help.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem and thanks for choosing FixYa.

When I plug my LG dehumidfiyer Model LHD659EBL I hear a small beep and nothing happens. I can not turn it on or get a light on the panel to even light. This unit is only a few years old and it worked fine...

Remove the water collection bucket and reinstall it. Make sure the bucket fits "squarely" in the holder from top to bottom. The bottom should not tilt down at the bottom, when it's properly installed.
While you have the bucket out, look in the top of the bucket for a float valve. If it has one, it may be stuck in the UP position. Juggle the float arm to get it to return to the DOWN Position and reinstall the bucket as described above.

Either of the tings mentioned above, will cause the unit to not turn ON.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

It continues to shut down after start saying it is full, but it has no water in it. No matter if I take out the bucket and push back in it still says full. Not even a year old!!!

Here's a solution that often works. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and wait 12-15 minutes before plugging it back in. Then turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your control as you normally do. Hopefully, that 12-15 minute timeout allowed the unit to reset itself. If it continues to do this contact Haier Customer Support 877-337-3639 and have your Model Number and Proof of Purchase handy. If it's less than a year old, it's still under warranty.

Good lick. I hope this helps solve your problem.

Trips circuit breaker. when it runs, it does not extract humidity.

this isn't what you want to hear but it sounds like you have a bad compressor . if the unit is less then 1 year old then find a local warranty service and they will fix it for free. If it is older then 1 year old it will cost more to fix then the unit is worth.

This unit has had a lot of problems. It has come up in other forums. The fan motor is thermally protected. Could be the printed circuit board is bad. Check out this forum:
