If you carefully examin the compressor/motor, there should be a small red or orange button on the side of it. Or it may be inside the the terminal box.TURN OFF POWER BEFORE YOU START!!!
press the button in firmly and you shoul feel or hear a click.

That is the motor protection 'overload".
once pressed. close it all up and turn on power.

I have LG65 no water get collected but the compressor kicks in but nothing


There are 5 basic, yet solvable reason for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder
level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

My Frigidaire dehumidifier model FDL70S1has an error code "A5" My coils keep freezing up as well with heavy ice. It has worked fine in the same spot in the basement for two years until last week....


All most all dehumidifiers have a defrost cycle to take care of this problem. However, yours is either not working or the air intake filter is clogged, which makes the unit strain to keep up. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit, before attempting to remove the filter. Allow the unit to thaw while it's unplugged. Once it's completely thawed, plug the unit back in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls as you normally do. Within in an hour or two, you will know if this solved the problem. Also, keep in mind, dehumidifiers are designed only to work in temperatures above 41 degrees. If it's below that where you have the unit, that will cause it to freeze up.

With all that said, what you're seeing as the Error Code is in fact, AS (the 'S' looks a lot like a 5 on the LED screen) It indicates a Sensor Failure. In your case, it's more than likely the Defrost Cycle Sensor. The Owners Manual says "Contact your local Authorized Frigidaire Service Center, if this happens. I'm hoping that cleaning the filter (if needed) and allowing the unit to reset itself (while it's OFF & Unplugged) will solve the problem. But, it may only be a band aide fix.

Hope this helped you.

Dehumidifer "froze" Turned unit off removed ice and left for a couple of months. Turned unit on motor works but does not remove moisture.


timer is not working, or thermocouple is defective.
unit must cycle forward-reverse to remove ice, thisis how it works, by melting the ice that forms.

When I started my dehumidifier, fan and compressur


There may not be water to catch. It is winter (darn near), at least in the North (USA). I'm in the North East, neither of mine run very often this time of year. You don't say what your setting is ... it shouldn't be lower than 50%.

If you think it is still damp in the space you are concerned about, you can put a fan in the room to move the air around more. It could be that your room is really too big for your machine to actually monitor properly. That was the situation in my case, thus two units + a circulating fan for summer use.

I hope this helps you

FROZE UP NOW IT IS DEAD


UNplug it and let it sit for about 10 to 15 minutes and the built in circuit breaker will reset. The probable cause is the compressor can not start up due to the pressure in the lines so the breaker kicked in to prevent damage
