SOURCE: LG LD65EL dehumidifier will not collect water

Make sure the filter is clean and also make sure the coils are cleaned. If these are clogged they will restrict airflow which will cause the coils not to remove the humidity from the air. LG recommends that you clean the air filter every 2 weeks. They also include a brush to clean the coils. If this still does not work you will need to contact LG for service or a replacement. They have a 5 year warranty on them so the ones that you guys have should still be under warranty. Make sure that you have your reciept when you contact them to prove that it is still under warranty. Keep me posted. Also please rate my solution when you get a chance. Thanks - Tech101

SOURCE: dehumidifier throws off hot air

Yes! A dehumidifier is an entire AC system in one box. First the air passes thru a very cold coil causing moisture in the air to condense and run away. Then the air is re-heated thru a hot coil (the other half of the AC) and blown back into the room. The net result MUST be a net increase in temperature because of the heat added by the mechanical process.

SOURCE: LG Dehumidifier 3 years old stopped circulating resulting

Approached unit with air of trained appliance repair professional. Found Chinese-made product of vastly inferior quality, began series of tests, moving on to systematic disassembly finally sledgehammering the unit thence noting it failed to improve performance. resolved to not buy junk made in China or elsewhere. I've been "fix-ya'd" all right! Over and out.

My dehumidier blows very hot air while working. Makes it hotter than it was before starting. Like a furnace.


It is normal for a dehumidifier to discharge warm air. A dehumidifier is really an air conditioner - a fan blows humid room air across a cold fin coil that causes the moisture to condense on it and drip into a container - thus cooling AND dehumidifying the air. The cool air is blown over the warm coil and discharged out the back. A dehumidifier WILL normally increase the temperature of the room it is in.
You can do the same thing with sitting an A/C unit on a stool in a room. Room air will be drawn in, cold air will come out the front, hot air out the back and water will drip on the floor. And, the room will get hotter, due to what is called "heat of compression" even though you're running an A/C unit.

My LG Dehumidfier 3850A20500H has stopped pulling moisture from the air it still runs but no wataer in the bucket what could be the problem? this starts happening after 1 year of purchase.


There are several things that can cause the problem you described. Most of which are easily remedied.

1. The humidity/moisture extraction level is set to high. Lower it to 35%

2, Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Remove and clean the filter.

3. Refrigerant coils on the back of the unit are dirty and need to be cleaned.

4. Not enough clear air space around the unit. Maintain at least a minimum of 12" of clear air space all around the unit.

5. Unit is operating in a room that has an ambient air temperature at floor level, of between 40 -60 degrees F. Most dehumidifiers don't work well between those temperatures. Raise the unit up off the floor on to something sturdy enough for the weight of the dehumidifier when the bucket is full.

The above are the top 5 things that can cause a dehumidifier not to work properly. Fortunately, none of the solutions require any major repair to the unit.

Hope this helped you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem.

The dehumidifier isn't taking the moisture out of the air.


is the compressor in the unit hot to the touch,or are the coils freezing and thawing when it runs<if so you probably need to add some R-134a refrigerant,these type of units are notorious for losing all or part of their refrigerant charge,but unless you have the equipment to remove old refrigerant and vacuum the system down and recharge it it can get costly

The dehumidifier is blow cold air


Is it collecting water? The air coming out the back top half should be cool/warm. It will be a little warmer at the bottom near the compressor.

Humidifier measuring wrong %


This will need to be serviced. LG has a 5 year warranty on these models. They usually will tell you of a service center nearby which will service it free of charge since it is under warranty. If you do not live near a service center they may ship you a replacement and you send your old dehumidifier back to them. Make sure you have your reciept when you contact them so they can verify it is 2 years old.

MY LG DEHUMIDIFIER WILL NOT LOWER THE HUMIDITY


Make sure that the filter and coils are clean. LG recommends that you clean the filter every 2 weeks. They also include a brush to clear the dust from the coils. If this does not solve the issue it will need to be serviced. If it needs to be serviced this dehumidifier has a 5 year warranty. If it is under 5 years old contact LG and they will either offer to have it serviced by a nearest service center or send you a replacement if a service center is not nearby.

Dehumidifier -- LG LHD45EL


If everything is clean on the coils and the filter is clean it should work. I would contact LG because they have a 5 year warranty on these dehumidifiers. Make sure that you have your reciept. Usually what they will do is locate a shop near you and it can be serviced there. LG will pay the bill. Or if there is no local shop they will send you a service tag for your old unit and ship you a replacement unit. Contact LG and explain this problem to you. Everything should be covered under warranty still.

Good luck - Tech101
