Question about LG DH305 Dehumidifier

2 Answers

I have a Goldstar DH305 dehumidfier. It acts just like the 304 sample question. It runs for about a minute then shuts off. Turning the control level to min, then back to max and it runs again for about a min. I cleaned the regular coils, but I couldn't find the heat disapating coils. How do I bypass the control to see if that is the problem.

    IHere is the main problem: It runs for about a minute then shuts off. Turning the control level to min, then back to max and it runs again for about a min.
    I haven't seen any suggestions that would solve the problem.
    How do I bypass the control to see if that is the problem?

    It just keeps shutting off after about a minute. I would like to bypass the control but I don't know how to do that.

This is your thermostat faulting usually it's the sensor thats attached to the copper coils. this is a common thing.
getting hold of spare parts will be almost impossible, to obtain unless you are an authorised service person.
You are going to have to get the unit looked at by a professional service center/person. to get this resolved I fear.

Also one would have to obtain a service manual, I have searched for one,but couldn't find any.
As usual, please ask for a "quote" before proceeding with any repairs, in case this is indeed a symptom of a greater problem, that first thought.

Won't come on


Definitely check the air filter, it has a sensor and will stop working if it's dirty. Easy to clean by running water through it.

I need to know how to attach a hose to the Goldstar DH305 Humidifier


There should be a spot on the water tank, that is threaded to fit a hose, but is blocked by a piece of plastic. You must remove the plastic "plug", the connect a hose to it. Also there is a "special" part that could be used. This part can be found at http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/search/modelinfo.php?modelsID=117164, and I am sure other places also. I hope this helps

Goldstar dehumidifier model # DH305


I had this problem on a similar model. There is a pressure switch the tank when full pushes in, sometimes mine would stick. A little graphite for key locks was my remedy. Had to clean it up some though. Good luck!

Dh305y6 keeps shutting of within minutes


sounds like you need to replace your humidistat control. this is just like a thermostat on an air conditioning system, except inside of sensing temp and turning off, it senses humidity and turns off.

Will not run or turn on light will not turn on


Had a similar problem with Goldstar model DH305. A solution was already posted about cutting the two white wire going to humidity control, and it works until tray fills up (no control). However, if you want a complete fix which allows you to control by selecting humidity level go to the following site:

Dehumidifier


IS THE ROOM HUMIDITY LOW. IF IT IS BELOW 30% THE HUMIDISTAT WILL SHUT DOWN THE UNIT. THE AMMBIENT TEMP SHOULD BE ABOVE 65 DEGREES AND THE HUMIDITY SHOULD BE ABOVE 50 %.
