Question about LG LHD459EL Dehumidifier

1 Answer

My dehumidifier will not run. If I turn it on, it runs for a few seconds, then shuts off and the "bucket full" light goes on, even though the bucket is empty. I had been using it with a hose in place instead of the bucket, and it worked fine for a year or more.

I have a FDL70S1 Dehumidifier. Unit runs for just a couple minutes and shuts off-blinking bucket full even though no water in bucket. Unit won't stay on


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.

'bucket full' light on, but bucket empty


There is likely a switch operated by a float to turn that light on and turn off the compressor, sometimes manufactures use a rubber "O" ring on the float shaft and they can slip. take the cover off the pump and check the float or in some cases one of two floats are used. Once float turns the pump on and off and the second float shuts OFF the compressor and turns ON the full reservior light.

Unit only runs a few seconds and then shuts off


If the water reservior is empty then the float is stuck in the full position.

Empty bucket light is on and dehumidifier will not run


The float switch for the condensate reservoir (bucket) is malfunctioning.

It's sending a false signal that the bucket is full.

Maybe just stuck and needs cleaning or it may have failed.

Shuts off-"full" light when it isn't


Hi, I'm not familiar with your model but there is usually a plastic rod sticking down from the "roof" of the place where the bucket goes, and this is pushed up by the floating part of the bucket.As the bucket gets full, the float pushes up on the rod which activates the microswitch to turn of the compressor.

With me so far? OK, it could be that the rod is stuck in the "up" position and needs to be pulled down so the microswitch can go to the normal working position.

There is likely to be another mechanism which prevents the compressor running when the bucket is absent, or maybe they are combined on your model. Check that little rod and find out if it moves as it should.

Hope this helps. If this "fixes ya", I'd appreciate a rating for my reply, If not, please delay the rating and add a comment with any extra info you have and I will try to think of something else.

Cheers, D.
