Hi,

Might it be that the unit simply needs a full thorough cleaning including the tiny spaces between fins? Dust can gather and block air passage on many of the components of a dehumidifier not only on the filter. in some extreme cases, the unit could be undercharged (insufficient) coolant. A service shop engaged in the business of cleaning and repairing air conditioners should also be able to work on your unit.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Ice forming on top front part of unit


usually, ice build up is caused by low refrigerant levels (a dehumidifier is essentially an air conditioner). depending on the unityou may or may not be able to service it. Some of these systems are sealed at the factory and a pierce valve is needed to add refrigerant to the system.

Ice forms on the top of the dehumidifier.


normally the problem is either your evaporator is dirty or may be your systems isover charged,

you need a competent person to cean your systems and check gas pressures on the discharge and suction sde of your compressor.

My Goldstar dehumidifier is still draining water, but is forming snow/ice out the top of it. I've had a couple of years and has worked beautifully. Any suggestions?


Your unit has a sealed system leak. The sealed system is warrantied for five years. Find your receipt and call an authorized LG dealer to initiate an exchange.
