I have a Frigidaire dehumidifer model FDL70S1 that wont stay running for more than 3 minutes and then it shuts the fan off, but still has power to the unit.


Hi lynn crisp, thanks for your post!

From my understanding you are having a challenging time with your Frigidaire dehumidifier shutting too quickly. It sounds like a possible problem with your sensor or control panel. Are you currently under warranty? I would contact your manufacturer for assistance to a proper resolution. -Matt

I have a goldstar dehumidifier that runs for a couple min. then turns off. I unplugged the rheostat wires from the mother board and it runs just fine. Does that mean if I replace the rheostat switch the...


Runs for a few minutes then shuts off, easy fix. First, remove water catcher and slide filter out and clean it. Then find the two screws that hold on the front panel remove front panel. Make sure the unit is un-plugged. The humidity control dial has two wires connected to it. clip the inner wire. This will keep the unit on full. You could replace the humidity control dial, but why bother?

I purchased a 65 pint LG dehumidifer # LG LHD65EBL. This is the second one that I have had. I had to return the first one because it would not shut off when bucket was full. This one runs for about a...


First, tunr the unit OFF and unplug it for 10 minutes. Then plug it back in and turn it ON. It will automatically set at 70%. Press the - button and lower the humidity extraction level to 45% in increments of 5%. Once you reach 35% press and the - button one more time. Now the unit is set to run continuously, until the bucket is full and the unit turns OFF automatically or you manually turn the unit OFF. In case you have misplaced the Owner's Manual, I have included a link to it, that you can download and print. http://aic.lgservice.com/gcsc/dwn/main

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa..

Dont spend to much time trying to repair dehumidifier they are very cheap to replace. Most dehumidifiers have lots of problems because they are made so cheap. Just replace the dehumidifier you will tank me in the end.

I have a Goldstar Dehumidifier, model # GHD30y7 (S No 611TADR26946). It has worked well for a couple seasons. This season it will not stay running. It cycles on but shuts off after a couple minutes. I have...


Kreston, check the humidity level you have it set on. It may be that there is not enough humidity in the air for what you have it set on and it automatically shuts OFF.

Keep in mind, whatever level (percentage) you have it set on, is what it will maintain, not remove.
For example - if you have it set on 65%, that's pretty high level of moisture/humidity. But, it's not how much it's going to remove from the household air. Unless, the humidity level rises above 65%. Then it will only remove enough to maintain 65%.

If you want to remove humidity/moisture, you have to lower the setting below 45 to 50%, Try that and I think you'll meet with success.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

We just bought our dehumidifier a week ago. It seems to run only on short cycles starting up for a couple of minutes then shutting off for a few and thencoming back on. It is very annoying and doesn't seem...


Still have the receipt? cause if its a stand alone i would say return it, short cycling could be anything from bad sensor or controls to it over heating etc., if its one on your central system, well fire your installer and call a reputable contractor.
The only thing that could cause it to short cycle it other wise would be a half opened half closed float contact switch on the internal storage for the h20 removed form the air (assuming its a prattle stand alone eat that is)

It starts with control set to max and it runs a couple of minutes and it stops so i turn the control to low and back to max it starts again and stops the same way the humidity is at 60+ so it should stay...


one of 3 possible problems,the control is faulty,you can bypass this with a jumper wire and see if it stays running, the condenser coil is dirty and is not cooling the compressor correctly and the condenser and evaporator coils need to be cleaned,i would do this first before bypassing the control,then possibly its low on refrigerant and the low pressure switch is shutting it down or the switch itself is faulty,please rate this if it helped you,thank you

Constant on-off cycle


If the unit is freezing up I suggest replacing the sensor assembly. Just replaced mine because the thermistor that is on the suction line went bad and would not send the reversing valve into defrost.

Runs for a couple of minutes and then stops


Try cleaning out the air filter using cold water. I did not even know the unit had one until I had the same problem. Pull out the bucket. The filter is located where the front top edge of the bucket would be located if it were in the instrument. Remove it by pulling straight down. It may be taped to the instrument for shipping purposes. According to the manual, this should be done every month. I have had the machine since Katrina and this is the first time I have had a problem. Hope this helps.
