SOURCE: no instructions
only two fan speed - fast or slows. use fast humidity - cuts out appliance when required humidity is reached. set it about half way note that is f bucket if full, then a float switch will cut out the appliance

You can find the manual and the parts online a Sears Parts Direct. However, when you enter the model number, drop the *A off the number.
FYI - This unit was made for Maytag by Fedders. And they make one of their own, with the same model number.
Hope this helps you.

Jenifay, take good care of your dehumidifier and do all the routine maintenance that is recommended in the Owners Manual. As this model has been discontinued.
The following link will take you to LG's Knowledge Base. On the right of the page, you will see Dehumidifier Manual English. Click on that, and you can download and print the manual for a 45 pint LHD4SEL Dehumidifier.
Since I was able to get you a free manual, would you be kind enough to rate my response to you?

It may not need repair as, there are 5 basic, yet solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2..
1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If you have an analog unit
(no LED screen), turn the humidity extraction knob to Maximum.
2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.
3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.
4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.
5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.
I hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem without have to make any repairs.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
