Could be a failed compressor start relay. They are replaceable. Get one at an appliance parts store for your model or a generic one. Make sure you are unplugged before changing.

When turn off. makes a humming sound. compressor seems to be running.


Have same issue with 3 year old Frigidaire dehumidifier purchased in 2012. Must unplug to stop compressor running with power switch turned off. Unit gets hot and smells. Unplugging creates arcs at outlet since unit is pulling a lot of power. Plugging back in after some hours will make it appear to run normally and again remove moisture but it will not shut off when the fan goes off (humidistat bad?) and the set-point is reached. Cannot leave plugged in due to safetty/fire/overheating concern. Have not found answer on this forum or any other so far.

The bucket full light flashes even though its empty and inserted correctly and the humidity level is stuck at 1%. The unit as a whole just seemed to stop working.


I have the exact same problem. I suspect this is the same as the "CH 01" problem others had with a different unit that seemed to be the bucket switch. I still need to confirm.

Year 2005 cycling fan and compressor


Your unit is probably operating in defrost mode. When you use a dehumidifier in a cold room, the condensing coils can freeze water. The unit senses this and thus stops the compressor until the water frozen on the coils melts. Then it resumes its cycle. This is a problem you will have during the winter months. It makes the operation of the unit inefficient, but this is otherwise normal behavior.

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
