Less than 2 years old; fan still runs, but no water being removed. Pan is totally dry. Ideas? Anything I can fix on my own?


The compressor relay's purpose is to start the compressor. A faulty relay can result in the compressor failing to cycle on. The relay is accessed from the lower rear of the dehumidifier. The relay is located in the terminal box which is located at the side of the compressor.


Before testing a compressor relay, unplug the dehumidifier to avoid an electrical shock hazard. Also, if the compressor uses a capacitor, it must be discharged first to avoid the risk of electrical shock.



The compressor relay can be accessed by removing the terminal cover box. The cover is held on by tension or with a retaining clip.

I acquired used Amcor AHD65 Dehumidifier a couple days ago. I was told that it is just beyond the warranty period. I assume that it is a barely a year old. However, It worked this evening a sort since it...


You may still have some packaging materials left inside the unit. The plastic pan doesn't stay in side the bucket. It's used as a drain pan on the outside. Also, be sure the air intake filter is in place, is clean and there are no packaging materials behind it.

To extract more humidity, after checking all the things mentioned above. Lower the extraction level to 32 to 35%. Lower percentages means extraction of more humidity. (i.e.200% -35% = 5% drop in humidity).

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

My dehumidifier does not work at all anymore


I had the same problem with mine. I had it less than 2 years. The compressor seemed to kick on, but no water collected in the pan. the compressor should be covered for 5 years, but unless you have an extended warranty, there will be a service charge.

My dehumidifier was fried during a thunderstorm and nothing worked afterward, and it wasn't running at the time. I just bouught a frigidaire (45 pint) and I love it! no noise!

I BOUGHT 50 PINT DEHUMIDIFIER AT CANADIAN TIRE LESS THAN A YEAR AGO.IT LEAKS WATER.NOT SURE WHERE IT IS COMING FROM.ANY POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS?


Try cleaning the filter first. Pull it out and then wash it with water and let it dry overnight. Then clean the spigot/nozzle which fills the pan. This often becomes clogged with dust or debris or even insect webs. Once you wipe the nozzle with a rag, really clean it well with a finger. You should feel the rubber gasket at the end of the nozzle with your finger.

Likely the fill nozzle was just clogged so water drips along the top and down the sides of the pan instead of into it.

Good luck.

It is defective. The coils are not getting cold enough to condense water in the air. If you have the receipt and the unit is less than 5 years old, give LG a call for warranty repair.
