SOURCE: My whirlpool dehumidifier freezes up !! whats the problem?

Your dealer who looked at it was almost certainly right in his diagnosis. "Freon" was originally a trade name for a limited range of refrigerant gases (the stuff that's pumped around in the pipes of dehumidifiers, refrigerators, freezers and most other coolers), but the name is often used colloquially to refer to any refrigerant gas.
When it's manufactured, each machine is filled with a measured quantity of refrigerant gas. This can leak out slowly over time, and freezing up is the common sign that this has happened. Most refrigerator engineers should be able to refill your machine and check for leaks at the same time.

hopefully its not the coolant pump seizing. the only simple thing that goes wrong with those is the water full switch, which turns off every thing. try playing with the float thing in the tank, you shoud here clicking of the switch on and off

IIt may very well be that the the air intake filter needs to be removed and cleaned. But, before doing this, turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Allow the unit to completely thaw, before removing the filter.Never operate the unit without the filter in place, As this could damage the unit.

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

Coils freezing up


The largest culprits for freeze up are dirty filter, dirty coil behind filter....and on certain occasions, low on freon.

Doesn't collect water, freezes on top


clean filter and then check the coil behind the filter to see if clean. Biggest things that freeze a unit are dirty filter or coil...or low on freon.

Cycles every 3 minutes


It may be in a basement that is to cool. Unless this is a special low temp dehumid it needs to be in the upper 60's to work correctly. Also a 50 pint is for a pretty good size area, if it is in a small area or if the temp is to cool in the basement it is in it will freeze up and cycle off. 3 min is awfull quick though. It may be low on freon also. Just a couple things to think about.

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.
