Question about LG LHD65EBL Dehumidifier

1 Answer

How does the unit collect water?

My unit runs will turn on; however, the fan does not spin consistently. It will "hum" spin a rotation then stop spinning and then repeat. I feel like the fan should keep running if it is going to collect water (just not sure). The unit gets hot on top as does the black canister in the back (inside, believe that is where the coolant is but not sure).
Thanks for any help you can offer me.

Your fan motor is going out. You can remove the screws from the back cover and gently pry it off. After that, look into the unit and you will see the screws holding the front cover. Take the bucket out and remove the screws at the top. All the screws around the entire metal shroud need to come out. Then with the covers off you can see the fan mount screws. You have to move the evaporator very gently out of the way to get to these screws. Remove the fan motor replace it and re assemble the unit.

First the dehumidifier Gold AD35USS1 stopped collecting water. Cleaned the filter. Tried it again and it stilled did not collect water. Plugged it in and was Off but made a humming sound. Then when turned...


Brisy, you have an electrical problem within the unit, which may require the help of Whirlpool Technical Service to solve. That is, unless you have a multimeter and want to dismantle the unit to find the electrical problem. Could simply be a shorted wire or something more serious, which could require replacement parts. Also, consider the age of the unit and would it be cost effective to repair it, as opposed to replacing it. Quite honestly, repairs, sometimes can cost almost as much as a new unit.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

How do i check if its working correctly


If you want to give it the ultimate in-home test. Put the dehumidifier in the bathroom with the door closed and a hot shower running, but do not turn on the bathroom exhaust fan. Set the dehumidifier's controls as low as possible and let it run for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, return to the bathroom, turn the shower OFF and check the water collection bucket for water. The unit will probably be running anyway, when you return to the bathroom.

Remember, the lower the setting, the more the unit will run and collect water. Until it either reaches the humidity level you have it set for or the bucket is full and the unit automatically turns OFF

That's the best way to test a dehumidifier at home. Hope it helps you.
Please let me know.

Our Challenge 4151319 Dehumidifier has ceased to collect water. The fan operates perfectly. Can I get it serviced in Devon?


Hi,

First, make sure the humidistat isn't set too high by adjusting it to the lowest humidity setting and running it again.

Next, test the dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower running. If you don't see water collecting in the unit after several minutes, turn the unit off and clean all dehumidifier filters and coils. If, after adjusting the settings and cleaning the unit, you still don't see water collecting, you may have a refrigeration issue.

This situation will have to be addressed by a qualified technician.

Good luck

Can you please help me find out what makes my fan motor slowly stops running after about 30 minutes. The unit runs fine but after about 30 minutes the motor sounds like it slowing down and wants to trip....


mcdevito75 here, It could be the capacitor if you can replace with same size do so. The Armature or communtator in the motor could be shorting also, do the capacitor the change the motor.

The dehumidifier's fan does not turn and makes a humming noise


first,make sure the fan blade hasn't gotten stuck on the shroud and cannot turn,then shut off machine and by-hand rotate fan and see if it spins to a stop after several rotations,if it stops quickly there is a bearing problem with the motor,this is normal after many years of service,then replace the motor

Fan runs, no water collected


It appears that these units have a history of defectiveness. I bought one in late 2010 and it pooped early 2012. If the model is still made, buy a new one, return the defective one in the new unit's packing materials for a refund. Or keep the second (new) unit as a back-up, because the new (first) one may just fail again a short while later.

Unit Runs (fan and condenser) but no water?


By condenser I assume you mean the compressor is running. Is there ice forming on the front coil?
