Question about LG LHD45EL Dehumidifier
Ther is ice forming on the top of my dehumidifier along the crack between the front face plate and the top housing. It still seems to be drawing water out of the air, but Ihave to shut it off and let the ice melt every now and then. What causes this?
Usually this happens for one of two reasons: 1) there is a problem with the refrigerant and/or compressor (like a little leak of refrigerant)
2) the room that the compressor is in is too cool (below the operating range of the dehumidifier)
If the unit is under warranty, call for service if you know the room is above the minimum operating temp. If it is a problem with the refrigerant, they will probably replace the unit.
I hope this helps.
(we have an LG dehumidifier and had to have it replaced when it was less than a year old - it was icing up in the summer. It still iced up in the winter (at times due to cold in the basement).)
