I have an LG model LHD65EBL dehumidifier. The humidistat will not change from 70 when I push either + or -. The fan runs well and the compressor sounds like it is running well Some water comes out when the...


Prt of the problem may be a dirty or clogged air intake filter.

Turn the unit OFF and unplug, it before removing the filter to check and clean it.
You can ether vacuum it or if it's really dirty & clogged, wash it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly, shake off access water and allow it to dry completely, before reinstalling it.
Never operate the unit without the filter in place. As this could damage the unit.

Plug the unit back in and turn it ON. Try lowering the humidity extraction level now, using the arrow down button. For a very damp, humid basement application 35% is a good setting to start with for several days.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Is there any way to run automatically. . . where when it reaches humid per cent it shuts off? Can you rig to run for x hrs. per day and then shut off and restart the next day?


Norman, once the unit reaches the extraction level you have it set for, the unit will turn OFF automatically. However, depending on the humidity level in your home, it may take several cycles of running and emptying the bucket until it reached. After that, it should turn OFF, once the level is reached. Then when the humidity level rises above the setting it's on, it will start up again.

Since your unit is a Manually Controlled unit, there's no safe way to "rig' it to run on with a timer. The plug in wall timers are not rated high enough to handle the load of the dehumidifiers operation. Trying to use one, would fry the timer and possibly the dehumidifier.

If you want all the features you mentioned, you will need to purchase a new electronically controlled dehumidifier.

Whirlpool DEHUMIDIFIER Model - AD70USS1 does fan NOT does not cycle off anymore in the low settings as it should


According to the Owner's Manual for your model, the fan will run continually, if the unit is set in continuous mode or if the unit is in defrost mode. Once the unit senses a rise in the humidity level, the compressor will start up again. Also, a dirty or clogged air filter will cause the fan to run more that it should.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

The unit has started sweating cold water droplets on its top and in the last couple of days it has actually frozen.


Several possible problems. Filter clean? As strange as this may sound you may have lost a little refrigerant. If problem persists after filter is cleaned, then a Tech needs to look at it.

CH1 IS SHOWN AS WELL AS THE BUCKET FULL LIGHT


I have a LG model LHD65EBL that first started icing up along the top edge during humid days. After several months of this, it finally stopped working and displayed CH01 with the bucket full indicator flashing.

I took apart the dehumidifier, removed the temperature sensor from the coil and rubbed it between my fingers. I then plugged in the unit and it started right up, confirming either a sensor or other circuit problem related to that sensor. For my model unit, I ordered sensor assembly #6877A30013L from RepairClinic.com for $21.75 + shipping.

When I received the assembly, I measured the new and old sensor with an ohm meter: new sensor = 5.5KOhms, old, defective sensor = 5.34KOhms. I installed the new sensor assembly and the unit is working fine.

Just because the bucket full indicator is flashing along with an error code does not mean there is a problem with the bucket full switch.

Compressor won't run


the over-current relay is tripping out the compressor motor to prevent excessive current through motor windings. To prove this theory, open unit, find motor wires, disconnect wires from unit, and apply 120VAC to motor using external circuit-breaker source. Run 2 minutes max. If motor continuously turns, then relay is failing. Find it by tracing wires back to source and finding a small rectangular item. If motor again quits after 2 seconds, then this motor has an internal over-current self-resetting fuse that may be doing its job of preventing an electrical overload from a dead (shorted) motor.

Will not power on after the electricity came back on in the house!


That capacitor is a run cap for the compressor. Your problem sounds like a faulty connection in the circuit which supplies power to the solid state electronics. The electronics will have a 115 VAC supply from the rest of the machine's circuitry, most likely running to a small transformer. Check for 115VAC when you attempt to start the machine. Trace the circuit until you find the point where the power disappears when the start is pushed. If this does not reveal the problem, replace the board that has the transformer on it. There is a faulty connection somewhere which is opening when power is drawn. It is also possible that the compressor is locked & drawing enough power to disable the rest of the machine. Try it with the compressor disconnected, before replacing anything.
