Question about Goldstar DH3010B Dehumidifier

Open Question

Dehumidifier starts, stops, starts, stops about 4-5 times before actually staying on, what gives?

Our actual model number for this Goldstar is (WD) 3010. I noticed it doing this about a year ago, not sure if it was doing it fresh out of the box. Of course my husband says not to worry, but I don't want to come home to a charred house...please advise.

The hose connector does not drain the bucket, it drains the condensate before it enters the bucket. Tube passes through back of dehumidifier by the cord wrap area. (you may have to remove a small cover)

Take cover off. First check the fuse on the circuit board. If it's blown replace it. That should get the motor running, the motor might be or is going out. If the motor is bad you'll have to replace the motor. If the fuse is good and the motor is good, unhook the wires on circuit board that go to the humidity control switch. If the unit comes on with the humidity control switch unhooked, you'll have to replace the humidity control switch. Sears has them for about $11.50. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Goldstar dehumidifier won't run

Sounds like this unit developed a freon leak and that will make it run hot like that...cheaper to replace it then to repair...
There are many reasons for a dehumidifier2_bing.gif to not work or collect water.
Here is a tip that I wrote to help people to figure out what is going wrong with their dehumidifier2_bing.gif.

Only available for DjVu reader (download link on LG site). You'll need to download and install the plugin then close and relaunch your browser. I was only able to get it to work in IE in the end with Firefox and Chrome not working. IE objected I had to "allow" the plugin to run then once again close and relaunch the browser then it finally worked. Good Luck!

Url for owners manual

This dehumidifier is made by Goldstar (LG Electronics) which is found by looking at the first three numbers of the model number "580" and finding the cross reference list of actual manufacturers. The Goldstar model number for the same unit is "Model : LD50EL". This is the pdf file obtained from their site. Below is the url for the owners manual. or go to their main website at: Sorry this is all I have. I tried to upload the 5mb manual, but got a timeout error. So, you will have to download it yourself at the above location.

It runs but never water in tank

If it is reasonably clean inside and the room temperature is in the 70's you probably have lost some refrigerant gas or the compressor has lost some capacity. Look in side to be sure the coil is not frozen and the compressor is actually operating.

Good Luck,

Is Part # 3850A20500F one of this model? my unit

I found the model # on my Goldstar DH304 at the top of a sticker on the inside of the unit behind the bucket. Mine has stopped working too. I'm awaiting an answer to my problem but after some research it seems that unless the filter and/or coils simply need cleaned, there is lttle that can be economically repaired. Good luck.

I have dh404ey7 dehumidifier from goldstar and the fan wont turn on how do i get to work without spending alot of money?? Thank you

No there is no way to lubricate the fans internally...they are made to run for a bit and then be thrown out...
I have found that by using a thin oil like WD-40 and then positioning the motor so that it runs back the shaft into the motor you can get it to work into the motor. I usually use WD-40 and then follow with a light motor or sewing machine oil. This seems to give a longer solution...

Will not run or turn on light will not turn on

Had a similar problem with Goldstar model DH305. A solution was already posted about cutting the two white wire going to humidity control, and it works until tray fills up (no control). However, if you want a complete fix which allows you to control by selecting humidity level go to the following site:
