The orange full light is flashing, but the tank is empty, but no other light is on and it does nothing, i keep pressing buttons and nothing


This problem is usually caused by an improperly installed water collection bucket or the float valve inside the top of the bucket is broken or stuck in the DOWN position.

To troubleshoot this, turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Remove he bucket, check the float valve's position. If it stuck in the UP position, jiggle the handle to make it return to the DOWN position. This will also allow you to determine if the float is broken. If all this checks out, reinstall the bucket "squarely" from top to bottom into the bucket holder. It must make contact with the bucket safety removal switch on the back wall of the holder. When installed properly, the bottom of the bucket will not tilt down at all. Plug the unit in and turn it ON. If everything was done correctly, the unit should start within a few seconds.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thnanks for choosing FixYa.

It says it is full and there is no water in there and it will not run because it thinks it is full]


Usually when this occurs, the unit "thinks it's full', because either the water collection bucket is not installed properly or the float valve (if you model has one) in the top of the bucket, is stuck in the "UP' position.

Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Remove the water collection bucket and check for the float valve. If it's stuck in the UP position, jiggle the handle to make it return to the DOWN position. Then reinstall the bucket, being sure that it fits into it's holder "squarely" from top to bottom and is making firm contact with the Bucket Safety Removal Switch on the rear wall of the bucket holder. If installed properly, the bottom of the bucket should not tilt down at all. Plug the unit in and turn it ON. If everything was done correctly, the Full Bucket Light should not illuminate.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

It won't turn on. you will plug it in and the "full" button will flash on and off for 5 seconds then it wont show any sign of its power being on.


The last time the bucket was remove, it wasn't reinstalled properly or the float valve in the top of the bucket is stuck in the "UP" position (if yours is so equipped).

Remove the bucket and check for the float valve. If it's in the up position, jiggle the arm to make it return to the down position. Reinstall the bucket, so that it fits "squarely" from top to bottom, into it's holder. It must make firm contact with Bucket Safety Removal Switch on the back wall of the bucket holder. When installed properly, the bucket should not tilt down at the bottom.

Model 53701 purchased 2003. Hardly used. Has been on working fine. Shut it off to empty, pressed power to turn back on, & Nothing. Dead. It is not the plug Help barb


Barb, if thee water collection bucket is not properly installed or the float valve in the top of the bucket is stuck in the UP position, the unit will not turn back ON.

Remove the bucket, check the float valve's position (if it's stuck in the UP position, jiggle the arm of the float valve to make ir return to the DOWN position). When reinstalling the bucket, be sure it fits "squarely" from top to bottom into the holder, so the it will make contact with bucket safety removal switch. It should not tilt down at the bottom at all.

When I plug my LG dehumidfiyer Model LHD659EBL I hear a small beep and nothing happens. I can not turn it on or get a light on the panel to even light. This unit is only a few years old and it worked fine...


Remove the water collection bucket and reinstall it. Make sure the bucket fits "squarely" in the holder from top to bottom. The bottom should not tilt down at the bottom, when it's properly installed.
While you have the bucket out, look in the top of the bucket for a float valve. If it has one, it may be stuck in the UP position. Juggle the float arm to get it to return to the DOWN Position and reinstall the bucket as described above.

Either of the tings mentioned above, will cause the unit to not turn ON.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

LG DEHUMIDIFIER LHD459ELY9 LIGHT FOR "BUCKET


This usually caused by one of two things. The bucket is not installed properly or the float valve in the bucket is stuck in the UP position. The float valve is not in all models.

Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it. Remove the bucket, look in the top of the bucket on the left side closest to you. If you see a float valve you have that model. If the float is in the UP position, jiggle it so that it will return to the down position. Then reinstall the bucket. Plug the cord back in and turn the unit ON.

If you don't have a float valve, make sure, when you reinstall the bucket, that it fits "squarely" into the holder from top to bottom. When installed properly, the bottom of the bucket should not tilt down at all. The top, back side of the bucket must make firm contact with the bucket removal safety switch.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

The light indicating that "bucket


This usually happens when either the Float Valve in the bucket is stuck in the UP position (if yours is so equipped. Jiggle it to get it to return to the DOWN position.

If you humidifier's bucket is not so equipped. It's usually an indication that the bucket was not reinstalled properly, after it was removed. To check and correct this, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Remove the bucket and reinsert it, making sure that it fits "squarely" in the bucket holder from Top to Bottom. Once installed, make sure the bottom of the bucket is not tilted down in any way. Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. If it was reinstalled correctly, the bucket full light should have gone off and the unit will run as it should, if the humidity extraction level is set low enough.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

I have a Maytag dehumidifier and I cant get it to run. I emptied it once and after that it has not worked. It keeps telling me that it is full. The fans wont run at all. Any assistance would be great!


It may be that the bucket was not reinserted properly. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet Remove the bucket from it's holder and look inside the left top of the bucket. Your model may have a float valve. If it does and it's in the UP position, giggle it, so that it returns to the DOWN position. If it doesn't have a float valve, look up inside the bucket holder and you should see a trigger type switch, that the bucket, when installed properly must make firm contact with.

Reinsert the bucket into the holder, making sure that it fits squarely into the holder from top to bottom. That the bottom is not tilted down at all. Then, plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. If everything was done properly, the unit should have reset itself and will work as it should.

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