Question about Frigidaire FDF50S Dehumidifier

1 Answer

No power. Won't turn on.

I've unplugged it and plugged it back in. I've tried different outlets. I thought about kicking it, but nothing works. Is it dead? Or is there some reset button that I'm not aware of?

Is there a reset button for the power for the machine?


Anbna, there is no reset button for your discontinued model. However, you can try resetting it by doing the following:

Turn the ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes.
Once the time has elapsed, plug the unit in and turn the unit ON.

Hopefully, during that 15 minute timeout, the electronics reset and reverted back to the original factory settings. And the unit will turn ON when you press the ON/OFF Switch.

It's also a good idea to check the outlet it's plugged into. It very well could be an issue with the outlet (no power) or the circuit breaker for that outlet has tripped.

If you continue to have a problem getting it started, contact LG Customer Support 1-800-243-0000.

I hope this helped you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem.

My dehumidifier has no power. It wont light up, it is plugged in. The bucket is correctly put back in. Is there a fuse? A restart button? No lights, no power


First, Trista, have you checked the outlet it's plugged into. to make sure the outlet still has power to it?
As there is no reset button on that model. The outlet it's plugged into may be damaged internally or their may be a loose connection in the wiring. Try using another outlet, that's on a different circuit in your home. Once you do, be sure that you turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON, before trying to set the humidity extraction level. Once you do, set the level at 32% (that's the arrow down button).

I know you said ,"the bucket is inn correctly", but just to humor me, remove the bucket and reinsert it into it's holder, making ssure that the bucket fits "squarely" into the holder from top to bottom. The bottom of the bucket should not tilt downward, once it is installed.

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

Hi, Kenmore Dehumidifier 4254501. Brand new last


Now that you've had a chance to vent your frustration, Mike. Did you check the outlet the unit is plugged into, to make sure that it's working? Amazingly enough, I answer questions like yours all the time. And, you know what? 80% of the time, the problem is with the outlet. It's either the circuit breaker was tripped or the interior of the receptacle was damaged. And that's not counting a loose wire connection on the receptacle. So, either test the receptacle or plug the unit into another one, that's on a different circuit.

If by chance you have to replace any parts, your Kenmore Dehumidifier was manufactured for Sears, by Whirlpool. So, parts are interchangeable. And, as my son says, "If all else fails, read the Owner's Manual.

Try resetting the bucket, making sure that it is set properly and triggers the safety lever/switch. If that doesn't solve the problem. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF, unplug the unit from the wall outlet and wait 12-15 minutes. Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. If the bucket is installed properly, the unit should revert back to the original factory settings.

Hope this helps solve the problem.

After turning the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF, unplug the unit for the wall outlet and wait 12 -15 minutes. Then plug the unit back in to the wall outlet and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. That 12 - 15 minute timeout, should have allowed the unit to reset it self and clear that unknown code.

Was full - turned off to empty - replaced empty bucket, won'r turn back on and keeps beeping full


Try reinserting the bucket, making sure that it's positioned properly. So that the safety switch is engaged. If that still doesn't solve the problem. Turn the MASTER ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Wait 12 - 15 minutes and plug the unit back in. Turn the MASTER ON/OFF Switch to ON and hopefully, if the bucket is positioned properly, the unit will have reset itself.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem. Please let me know.

Demudifier worked great, all a sudden it just stopped. No power. Now it won't start up. What should I try?


First, check the outlet that it's plugged into, to make sure that there's still power to the outlet. If there isn't, then the circuit breaker for that outlet has been tripped, in your home's circuit breaker panel. Leave the dehumidifier unplugged and reset the circuit breaker. If it trips again, without the dehumidifier unplugged, then the outlet is at fault. Perhaps there's a loose wire connection or the interior of the outlet is cracked.

If it didn't trip without the dehumidifier plugged in, plug the unit it in,. But, before you do, make sure the dehumidifier's Master ON/OFF Switch is OFF. Once it's plugged in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. If it runs now, GREAT! If it trips the circuit breaker again, there's either a short in the power cord or an internal electrical short. Which will require extensive troubleshooting to find.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Have you tested the outlet it's plugged into, to make sure it still has power? If it doesn't, check the circuit breaker panel in you home for a tripped circuit breaker. If there is one, unplug the dehumidifier, before resetting it. Then plug the dehumidifier back in. If the circuit breaker trips again, the problem is within the dehumidifier or the outlet is faulty (i.e. Loose wire, burned wire, broken outlet). If the outlet is not faulty, you should contact Haier America Parts and Repair 877-337-3639.

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

I have a Goldstar GHD30 dehumidifier. I have not used it in awhile. I plugged it in to run it today and it does not turn on. I cleaned the screen and tried different outlets, nothing works. HELP!


Check the condensate collection bucket. If the bucket is not inserted correctly the dehumidifier might think the bucket is full and thus not turn on.
