Question about Goldstar DH304 Dehumidifier
The dehumidifier runs about 5 minutes then shuts down. If I manually dial back to the off position then dial it to max, it will run another 5 minutes before quitting. I've cleaned the filter and the coils. Could it be the "full" switch?
Whomever suggested clipping the white wires to the dial was right on and saved me from spending another 170 bucks Thank you!!!

I had the same problem with the unit not staying on. I also followed this suggestion (cutting the white wires leading to the humidity control knob) and it now runs continuously. I have no mechanical ability but was able to follow the instructions without a problem. My only concern now is having the system running when there is no humidity. Will it be safe? I unplug it when it isn't humid to be on the safe side. Eventually I'll have to buy a new humidifier, but this will work for now (it's only 2 years old). Thank you for help!

Had the same problem and I too cut the white wires leading to the himidity level switch. The unit came on immediately and has worked ever since (with same limitations as mentioned in the first solution post).

Yup, had the same problem. This is due to a bad humidity control switch (the white dial you turn on the front). It needs to be disconnected. If you are a do it yourself-er there are 2 ways to do so. Disconnect the white plug next to the blue plug in the electric box inside. (a lot of screws this way). Or (the easy way) remove the water tray from the front, unscrew the 2 black screws hidden by it, unseat the tabs from the front panel (one on each side, and two on top) then snip the 2 white wires that lead to the dial. (not the shut off light). You can't shut it off with the dial after this, but it will shut off when the water tank is full or when you pull it out. I am not a technician, I just like to fix things that cost me money.
