Your uniot has a sealed system leak. It has a five year warranty on the sealed system. You will need your receipt and to contact an authorized LG dealer to exchange it for you.

My LHD45ELY7 freezes up. Why? Is it broken?


Assuming this isn't just a weather change, it probably needs cleaning. The unit is supposed to run the fan without the compressor intermittently to give the cold coils a chance to warm up a bit so the little bit of ice that normally forms can melt off. But once they get dirty, this melting and runoff is impeded. Spray some formula 409 (or similar) on the coils and rinse thoroughly. It is also possible that the unit is not switching over to run the fan only (without the compressor). This could be due to a bad temperature sensor, or it may be dirty or corroded so it thiinks the coils are a bit warmer than they really are. If you can find this sensor (it's usually attached to the coils with a little spring clip) see if you can't clean up where it makes metal contact (thermal contact) witht the coil. Good luck.

Ice is forming on the top of the unit, it is running but not very much water is collecting


Ice will often form if the humidity level is high or the air intake filter needs cleaning. If it's because of high humidity or being used in a basement, the unit may appear to still be running, but it's usually just the fan and it's going thru a defrost cycle.

If you check the filter, be sure to turn the Master ON/OFF Switch OFF and unplug the unit. Remove the filter and clean if necessary. If you wash the filter, use warm water and dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry completely, before reinstalling it. DO NOT run the dehumidifier without the filter installed.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Ice started forming on top of unit and now it has shut off and won't restart. It hasn't been running efficiently for past few weeks. Can I fix it?


If the surrounding temperature is low enough the condensing elements of a dehumidifier ice up just like the cooling plates in a frig. Either reduce the power or raise the surrounding air temperature.

Ice forming on top front part of unit


usually, ice build up is caused by low refrigerant levels (a dehumidifier is essentially an air conditioner). depending on the unityou may or may not be able to service it. Some of these systems are sealed at the factory and a pierce valve is needed to add refrigerant to the system.

A large block of ice formed over the entire front where the vent is. Basement temp was apprx 64 degrees F, but this model is supposed to operate at lower temps. Discovered after it was running continuously...


35 is way low; why not 50%?

At the cooler temp you may need to also run a small fan or space heater blowing on it.

It is working, but the setting is too low and the temp in the room is too low

Running, but no water coming out. Is forming ice


Your machine has a sealed system leak and is low on freon. Read your owners manual and there should be a 5 year sealed system warranty. If so you will need your purchase receipt and call an authorized LG dealer for an exchange.

Error Code CH 01


I have a Comfortaire BHD501 dehumidifier. A couple weeks ago I noticed ice building up on top of the unit,so I unplugged it to defrost. I plugged it back in and it worked until I noticed the "CH" "01" code. It would run a few seconds then shut off with that code showing. I took off the front of the unit and noticed rust on some of the metal parts. Then I took the cover off the circuit board for the front read out. I noticed corrosion on some of the solder points. When I looked closer at the plastic cover for the circuit board I noticed a small burn mark. The water from the melting ice must have run behind the cover and shorted out the circuitboard. At this point I don't know if new boards are available.

Unit is repeatedly freezing up


Almost all dehumidifiers now have automatic defrost, but if you are seeing frost is just one small area, it means there is a refrigerant leak. Check your warranty to see if the sealed system is covered longer than one year. Generally, if it is, most manufacturers will replace the unit (rather than repair it, as the repair is rather expensive compared to the cost of a new unit). If you do not have any sealed system warranty coverage left on it, don't fix it. Buy a new dehumidifier.

Ice on dehumidifier


A dehumidifier works by cooling the metal pipes on the back of the unit to create condensation (water vapor in the air). This then drips into the collector bucket. If the unit runs too long the cooling tubes can get too cold and freeze the condesing water vapor. Unplug the dehumidifier and let the ice melt, when u turn it back on, turn it down, it may be up too high. If you find this solution helpful please rate it.
