Question about LG LHD45EL Dehumidifier

Open Question

Kenmore Dehumidifier #580.52450200 Its has work fine for 5 years and now the past year it will not turn on. I will get no power to the digital display. I used to be able to wiggle the power cord a certain way and then it would peep and come to life and work. But if I moved the unit it would shut off and go dead. Now I can't even wiggle the power code to get it on. I opened it up and everything seems fine. Would a new power cord, capacitor or display board help? Rob

You can check to to see if the bucket switch is not stuck. Could also be a bad capacitor, discharge it and test it.

SOURCE: Everything seems to run fine, just hasn't pulled a drop of water

remove the back airfilter, and touch the tubes while the unit is running, if nice and cold, all is well, there just isnt any moisture there. but if compressor is running and tubes are warm , means freon/coolant has leaked out

Kenmore Dehumidifier 129-25803, Pump System malfunction


I also have a Kenmore pump system 129-25803 but I do not have the manual. I have tried to find one online but to no luck. I also called the Sears Parts & Service and they do not have a listing for this type of dehumidifier. Just wondering if you have a manual you could share? Please email me at taylor005@eastlink.ca

I have a Kenmore 54701 dehumidfier, less than 2 year old. the power is on, a fan seems to be running, I no longer hear a compressor turn and, and no water is collected?


The sealed system of the Kenmore 54701 dehumidifier is warranted (Parts & Labor) by Sears for five (5) years. Since the fan in your unit runs but the compressor doesn't, I suggest that you return it to Sears and request (demand) a new replacement unit under their warranty. I say "demand" because Sears will undoubtedly tell you that the problem is due to some "other" component which is not covered, and will charge you mega-bucks to repair it. Been there - - done that.

FYI, read the (very low) customer reviews of these units on Sears website and you'll see you're not alone in your experience with Sears' inferior quality units.

Above all, do NOT pay to have it repaired. That money is better spent on the purchase of a far more reliable brand of dehumidifier - - (which will most likely cost less that what you paid for the Sears unit).

Dehumidifier does not collect water.


My unit does not collect water any more. It was fine until I lent it to my brother in law and it was returned damaged. Do you know how to fix this
