Hi,
I have had a couple of dehumidifiers that I have taken apart and found that the power was not coming from the circuit bord to the compressor. I blamed it on a relay in the board as they were cheapo chinese relays...not heavy enough for the compressor load in my opinion, but heavy enough to work for a year till the warranty was up... :-)

It could be a sensor but that would be tough to troubleshoot...
For me I had to tell my customers to buy a new on as it would have cost them more for me to troubleshoot completely and fix the unit then a new one would cost them..

Zenith ZD30 dehumidifier - 1 1/2 years old stopped working had a half bucket oc colledted water in bucket when it stopped. I checked the fuse on the circuit board and have continuity.


Unplug from wall. Take the front cover off and disconnect the 2 wires that attach to the humidity control dial. Plug back in. If it works, the problem is the humidty control dial (mine just went bad). With it unhooked, it will run constantly, but will still turn off when the bucket is full. To turn off, simply unplug.

My 1 yr old Zenith ZD30 dehumidifier just stopped working all together. The bucket is empty and I checked the to be sure that a circuit didnt trip. Any suggestions as to what it can be?


The Zenith ZD30 is made by LG as many other brands are also. There is a fuse located on the control board. That may have blown. I have also had 3 LG units come into my shop with bad control boards. If the fuse is ok. Measure the ohms at the power plug L1 to Neutral, with the unit unplugged. It should read around 430 ohms. The ones with bad boards read real high. Hope this helps.

Humidifier compressor does not stay on more than 1-2 minutes


Sounds like bad relay on compressor or bad compressor. There is only so far you can go yourself without knowledge in electrical and AC units. Suggest you call a service tech or if you can take it to service cemter near you. Russ

DH30 Dehumidifier Compressor Does not Operate


I just picked one up at a tag sale, seller said it worked sometimes. Seems to have the same problem as yours. I took the time to tweak all of the connections and then re-soldered the control board with no luck. I finally disconnected the humidity control and it worked fine. By disconnecting the humidity control the unit defaults to it's highest setting and you have to unplug the unit to turn it off. Conclusion so far is that the humidity control rheostat is bad.
Note: Now while running the fan runs continuously and the compressor cycles on and off every 10 to 15 minutes. This may to be normal since the unit appears to be doing its job and I'm not sure how it is supposed to run since a purchased it broken.
