The de-humidifier does not work at all when I plugged it. I did check the cord wires and
their are fine suggesting the problem is elsewhere. Is it the board supply damaged? If so, could someone identify the board supply for a LG Model LHD65EBL de-humidifier? Is this the entire board
where all the connections and wires are plugged to?

Have you checked the receptacle it's plugged into, to see if it's still working? Use an electric lamp to check this. If the lamp doesn't work, the circuit breaker in the home's main panel has been tripped. Unplug the dehumidifier and reset the circuit breaker. Then plug the dehumidifier back in. If it trips the circuit breaker again, there's an electrical problem within the dehumidifier.
In answer to your direct question ... some dehumidifiers have a reset switch. It's probably on the back of the unit, above the water collection tub. if all else fails consult your Owners Manual's Trouble Shooting Guide. If you have misplaced it, you can download it from the Whirlpool Appliance starting at their home page.
Hope this helped head you in the right direction to solving your problem.
A dehumidifier is functionally the same as an air conditioner. It has a compressor motor, which is a fairly high current draw item.
First of all, unless you are well versed in electrical repairs, you should unplug this unit and do not use it. This is a dangerous condition and a fire or electrocution could result.
One of four things is happening:
1) You have a wiring fault in the circuit your humidifier is plugged into. There is a loose connection in the circuit, causing a voltage drop, and the humidifier therefore has to pull much more current to start it's compressor. This is a very dangerous condition, as an electrical fire could result. Try plugging the unit into another circuit and see if it does the same thing.
2) the compressor of the humidifier is going bad and is shorting out internally. Time for a new unit.
3) Many compressor motors use a 'start capacitor' to help the motor get going. If this part has failed, the motor will try to start, but it will not be able to.
4) There is a fault in the power cord or controls of the humidifier. Just like #1 above, a loose connection could cause a voltage drop, making the unit draw high current.
most of these units are standard 110V units. If yours uses 220V (like an electric dryer), then it could have 'lost a phase' which is also a similar electrical issue.
HI, you will need to check the terminal block. this is where the power cord runs to on the back side of the unit. make sure it is not lose or worn. you may have to disassemble the unit to expose the terminal block in this case. the power cord wires will spit into three or four little wires and, they will either be soldered or screwed on the block. make sure these wires are secure and not ripped or worn.
Now, if the terminal block is in good condition, this will confirm power board failuer and, in this case, you will need to replace the board supply board .
On the side with the lint screen, remove the five screws holding the top
panel in place. The sensor that needs to be checked in mounted on the
radiator fins. Remove the sensor and 4 pin connector. With a pin,
remove the loose fitting housing the "sensor"...a circuit board that
"shorts" with condensation...check corrosion and look for component
damage on the oft chance the circuit board was damaged by some
inappropriate poking or mechanical failure. Reassemble and replace
For a short life span...or out of warranty and only at your risk (IF
have significant other or kids or pets or human DNA... don't do this...)
.. guide wire through screen notch and attach to outer screen. Build
fortress around exposed sensor and talk to insurance agent for a special
rider...seriously be careful.
Did you? Clean screen and GENTLY clean fins of lint, etc....(vacuum's brush head should do the trick...)
Taking all appropriate safety precautions.
Here's the 100,000 (yen) tip....with humidifier unplugged, hold down the
power button (green button in lower center) and plug in the appliance.
Watch the LCD screen as it conducts a self test...and wha...lah!.
Should have a working humidifier!
no really..."de nada". :"don't touch your moustache" "Doye toche moche"(?), "prego".
Hi there - you have to vacuum the filter several times. You can pull it out of the back left hand side of the unit. Vacuum it several times, and then start the unit on the lower fan setting, at a humidity level of around 60%. It will kick in after a bit, and then you can start adjusting the humidity level to where you would normally use it.
Sometimes - after you have vacuumed the filter, it still doesn't work. I used my fingers to pick lint off the filter, and ran a BIC safety razor over it as well, to try and get more out of the filter. You can also wash the filter in warm water, and leave it to dry over night. Don't put it back in until it's completely dry.
