Question about LG LHD45EL Dehumidifier
A dehumidifier works like a low powered air conditioner where a fan draws air through a refrigeration unit which cools it and condenses water vapour and collects it in a container.
There is likely to be at least one air filter so some cleaning of the air takes place and such filter(s) will need attention periodically and in addition most manufacturers claim their products need servicing every 3 years.
Best results will be obtained when the room is closed and ventilation minimal and the capacity of the machine is more than adequate for the space where it is sited. A room with an open window or where the door is opened frequently is not really a suitable site for a dehumidifier.
It is important to choose a machine that is somewhat too large as efficiency will fall between service intervals.
It is quite possible a manual for a different but similar model by the same manufacturer will provide some useful information...

If when you turn your dehumidifier on the compressor runs then you should get moisture. Dehumidifiers work on the same principal as refrigeration. There is a bad control switch or the compressor start relay or capacitor is defective. If compressor runs and there is no effect then that is another problem. The filter should come out the front where the air goes in front and the filter should be washed by hand in warm degrease detergent water, dry and replace. If the disposable type filter I will help you contact LG.Thanks, Sea Breeze

Your unit is still under one year old, and is thus still under factory warranty. This is exactly why you have a factory warranty. Use it. If you are in the USA, you can find a service provider at http://www.lge.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp
Bring a copy of your sales receipt to the service center to establish proof of date of purchase.

Short on refrigerant... or a failed compressor. are most likely or a system problem, causing it to trip off.
There may also be a failed electrical component, you need to check for voltage at the compressor.

If you've emptied the tank and the unit doesn't run, inspect the place where the tank rests to see if there's a switch or mechanism that's not being activated. You may be able to turn it on with a simple flick of your finger.
