DeLonghi Dem 10 dehumidifier stopped working - the 'operational light' turns on but the fan does not start up.


You may need a new fan motor. If you can get to this
motor, with the power disconnected, see if the blade
is free to move. Do you hear any sound coming from
this unit?

The fan in the dehumidifier makes an awful lot of noise.


It may not be the fan, as much as it the compressor vibrating. This occurs if the unit is not sitting on level flooring or on a carpet. Why I carpet? I do not know, but my LG unit does the same thing. I have found that smacking the sides of the cabinet simultaneously with my open hands, stops the vibration and the noise.

if however, it is the fan making the noise, it too can be affected by an UN-level surface. In addition, the fan shaft made need lubricating. WD40 works well for this or light machine oil (like sewing machine oil) will work too.

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

The compressor runs, but the fan doesnt work when we trouble shooted it. we found out it has power when we bypassed the switch and tested it. we pulled out the control box and it doesnt look like anything...


Hi, after reading you're problem, I found that you did the right thing.If you bypassed the switch and now you have power to the condenser motor but it doesn't operate, the motor is faulty, as you are eliminating the switch sending power to the fan motor. If you have power going into one side of the switch and you jumped it over, and the motor starts, the switch is at fault. So, you did the right thing! Sometimes you cant tell by looking at the switch wiring to no if it is at fault.In the field, we use jumper wires everyday to bypass components to check them out.In you're situation, both the compressor and condenser fan motor operate from this same switch, and the compressor was running. So, that tells me without having to bypass it that the fan motor is the faulty one, or the compressor would also be off. You may have to find one at a appliance parts house, or order one online. Sounds to me that you will have no problem changing this out. Best of luck to you, and Sincerely,

We have a LG LHD65EBL Serial # 603TAAC20984. My Husband said that he thinks the armature in the fan motor is bad. Everything in or basement went moldy over the summer. We heard it running but it was not...


Sure, you can find parts on line, just search "lg parts" then look for you model.

If the fan is not working:Take it out, and search the part number on line, they are bout $40 with s/h. however my current discovery:
It made no sense to me that despite no visual issues, the fan motor is bad. So, with further research it turns out that the true culprit is the small thermistor/thermal fuse between the orange wire (ground) and motor winding wire. The thermistor is taped underneath the silver aluminium and yellow tape on the fan motor. I heard about this bad (open/no continuity) thermistor makes almost >99% of the fan motor problem regardless of any brand name because this cheap c-fram fan motor is NOT made in USA. I opened the motor, there is a silver (aluminum wrap) around the windings for the motor that needs to be cut. Careful not to cut the motor windings. Inside there is a thermistor or type of temperature sensor connected between the orange wire and a motor winding wire. On my motor this was no longer working.
The part marked "JET 123 NM1 2A 130C" is a thermal fuse. The 130C is the temperature rating. When the motor get hot (130C / 265F) the fuse opens. The circuit is broken and the motor stops.

The motor is still good. The fuse is blown. It must be replaced to get the motor running again. You could bypass the fuse but then you invite a fire hazard.

A replacement fuse is available from Digi-Key. It is a Cantherm SDJ1 DF128S (128C):

Part cost 98 cents

You might want to go with the next higher temp (141C):

Dehumidifier runs but does not condense water.


It sounds like an issue with the control bord. This dehumidifier should have a 5 year warranty through LG. You will need to have this serviced. If it is under warranty by LG they will either refer you to a local repair shop and they will pay for the repair or they will replace it if you do not have a repair shop in your area. Call them and explain the problem to them. Make sure that you have your reciept. Here is the contact information for LG:

Keep me posted. If you found this solution helpful please rate it when you get a chance. Thanks - Tech101

LG LD65E humidity variance


Is the compressor running or is it just the fan? If its just the fan it is because it is cycling the air and it uses that air flow to check the humidity in the air. If the fan runs non-stop and the compressor does not turn on or the fan does not shut off there is a problem with this unit and you will need to replace it. Since it is brand new you should still be able to return it to the store.
