Question about LG DH30 GoldStar Dehumidifier
I bought a Goldstar Dehumidifier (model # DH305Y7) at walmart a year and a half ago. It worked well for one season and then when turning it on this spring it seemed that only the fan would turn on - now I don't even have the fan working. It's as if it's completely "off".
I took the front off (face of the dehumidifier containing the filter) and all the wires/switches are connected well and nothing is burned/fried, etc. Is there a fuze or something of that nature that could be blown, or a "sensor" or something? It worked fine for the small amount we used it last season and is relatively new, I'd like to fix it.
NICE site also, very informative and good tips!
We just had the same problem with an LG. Worked well for two years, then this year the fan blows without taking any moisture out of the air. The inside of the base is rusty, as if a chemical was spilled (refrigerant, perhaps?!?). Everything else looks pristine.
LG sucks! I just went out and dropped $300 on a new (non-LG) dehumidifier.

Unfortunately this is quite common for most DH's of this type. The only one that I have found that does not have a reputation for losing the fan or compressor after a year or two is the Whirlpool.

You can check to to see if the bucket switch is not stuck. Could also be a bad capacitor, discharge it and test it.
