Hello,

I will advice you check the water bucket to see if it is full and empty the bucket in a sink if needed. GE dehumidifiers have a safety feature that shuts down the device when the water in the bucket reaches a certain level.
Install the bucket correctly in the unit by hooking the slots on the bucket on the posts on the back of the device. The dehumidifier will not run if the bucket is not properly setup in the device.
Take care.

Followed turn on instructions in manual.CO display 2 days. continually. Unit gets Very warm & fan runs if turned off. Have to unplug to stop. Unit used approx.3 mo in '14 & just restartd this week.


could you be mistaking the room humidity indicator for the time? reason I ask is on these one display units this happens more frequently than Id care it too , the one display shows both time and room humidity also set point humidity , the only way one can tell is on some models there is a tiny light that shows up next to labeled function , easy to miss It , also if your machine is sort of new (last few years) it has been decided that it's more efficient to let the circulation fan run all the time , regardless of room humidity . this makes it a little annoying (noise) but they do cycle the compressor to regulate the room humidity

How do I set the humidity % on my dehumidifier? I lost the User Manual and the unit is not collecting water after running for hours. Make: Airworks - Model: A1DMDA10AG


If you have an LED screen on your unit, lower (arrow down) the humidity extraction level to 35 - 40%. If you have an analog unit, turn the humidity extraction knob to Maximum (which should be clockwise).

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Will not regulate humidity correctly. I set it at 60% and it is still running when the humidity in room reads 45%. I have confirmed this with a separate humidity gauge.


It may just be the fan running and not the compressor. Some unit's are designed that way, so that air is constantly moving and when the humidity level rises above what you have it set on, the compressor will automatically turn ON and remove that moisture. Wants it's back to where you have its set, the compressor will turn OFF. Check your Owner's Manual to see if your model has that feature.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

The dehumidifier shut off automatically but will not come back on. Model M7DH45B2A


If the unit shut off automatically, because it had reached the humidity extraction level you had it set on. It won't turn back ON again, until the humidity level rises above the setting you have it on. Lowering the humidity extraction level to 32 -35%, should make it start up again and cycle like it should. If your unit does not have an LED Screen, set the manual control on Maximum.Be sure the bucket is not full and the air intake filter is clean.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Hi, When I tried to start my dehumidifier, it won't work and indicate CH 01. The bucket is totally empty and in good place. What this CH 01 means?


Your model is no longer in manufacture or available. However, I was able to locate the Owners Manual for you. It does not list a CH 01 Error Code, but does list other reasons why your unit want turn ON.

http://www.lg.com/us/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=LHD45EL&matchedModelCode=1000001989&searchEngineModelCode=LHD45EL&targetPage=support-product-profile&initialTab=documents#


In the past, I have recommended turning the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplugging the unit for 12-15 minutes. This will give the unit time to hopefully, reset itself. Then Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity control as you normally would. If it successfully reset itself, it should operate normally.

If you continue to have problems, contact LG Customer Support at 800-243-0000.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

Dehumidifier automatic on and off function not working


Unless you live in a dry environment or place the unit in a hermetically sealed room, it probably will not turn off. As the air dries within the room, more moisture comes in with the air. As long as the air outside of the room is more humid than the room this will be true.

LHD65EBL Code CH 01


I had the same problem, and I wound up calling LG's customer support line. The rep I spoke with says that the "CH" code means that the internal thermostat is not able to accurately read the air temperature, and the unit will require servicing.

She gave me a couple of numbers for local folks, and I'll call them in the next day or so, but I'm thinking that this may not be worth the repair, unless it's pretty cheap: I bought the unit for under $100 less than 9 months ago, and I'm not eager to shell out a bunch of money to get it repaired.

Dehumidifier Error?


Same problem with Goldstar model DH404EY7 -- stop code 01 on startup, bucket full light blinks (drains to floor).

Replaced the main controller board to fix it.

For my model dehumidifer the part # is 6871A20888A, and cost $77.44 (not counting shipping) from Appliance Factory Parts. The Appliance Factory Parts web site also provides parts breakdown (exploded parts diagram) diagrams and service manuals in PDF form.
