It is loud vibrating when comp. runs if I tip the unit up 3or4 inches it stops vibating is this ok too run this way?


No, not really. As the unit has to be in a level position to operate properly and not overflow.
If the unit is sitting on carpet, this will often times cause the vibration noise. I don't know why, but it does and it does with my 4 year old LG unit. I have noticed, that once the tank reaches the 1/2 full point, it will vibrate sometimes. I solved the problem by firmly smacking the left & right sides of cabinet at the same time, with my open hands. The vibration stops immediately and continues to run until it shuts off because, the humidity extraction level has been reached or the tank is Full & needs to be emptied.

It's a simple solution, but it works. I hope it works for you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Not running- CH 24 code on the Humidity setting & empty bucket red light flashing even though bucket is empty and in place correctly


If the bucket is in place correctly, turn the unit OFF & unplug it for 10 minutes. This should allow the electronics to rest and revert back to the original factory setting after you plug it back in and turn it ON. From there you should be able reset the controls to your liking.

Hope this helped. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Kenmore 54701 70 pint dehumidifier about 4/5 years. It has worked well until recently. It is hooked up to a garden hose into a drain. I noticed water was dripping from the housing. The drain is...


Marco, There are 4 things than can cause the problem. All are solvable.

1. The air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Remove and clean the filter if necessary.

2. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

3. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

4. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older.


Hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a kenmore dehumidifier (about 2 years old), and i've found that after i turn the unit on and it is running for 2-3 minutes, it will then shut down even though no water has collected in the tray. any...


My first thought is that there's not enough moisture/humidity in the air, for the setting you have the humidifier set on. The higher the setting or percentage (i.e. 60%) means that the level you want to maintain. Which may be find in the cod winter months. In the Hot summer months, you want as low a level of humidity as possible (i.e. 45%).

My second thought is that the air intake filter and the coolant coils need cleaning, since it has been used in 2 years. It's just sat around gathering dust and spiders.

And finally, the collection bucket, may not be inserted properly and when the unit starts up the vibration dislodges the bucket just enough, so that it's not making contact with the safety switch. Sometimes when this happens, the Full light indicator will come ON, even if the bucket is empty.

Hope this helps you to start troubleshooting the problem. Please let me know.

I have a kenmore 54351 model dehumidifier. It wont come back on the auto shut off light keeps flashing. The tank has been emptied. Its not even a year old yet.


There is a switch that is activated when you slide the tank back into the unit after you empty it. If the tank is not in just right it will not activate this swith. You might look for it and try pressing it with your finger to see if it is working. Not sure about your model but be careful not to shock youself! The switch should be insulated and is really just an interlocked relay...

Auto shut off


Try re-seating the bucket. I have found some LG models that if not seated all of the way will sometimes keep running and think the bucket is not full even when it is. On the models that I have seen do it the problem is usually the left side of the bucket not engaging all of the way. When you reseat the bucket, feel where the bucket meets the dehumidifier on each side and make sure they are even. If one feels like it is sticking out further than the other and you cannot push it in any more pull the bucket out and try and reseat it again until both sides are flush with the dehumidifier. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.

Thanks - Tech101
