I have a code on the screen CH 01... What do i need to do to get it to run again???


CH 01 Indicates that water collection tank is full and needs to be removed & emptied. Turn the unit OFF and unplug it, before removing the bucket.

Hi, When I tried to start my dehumidifier, it won't work and indicate CH 01. The bucket is totally empty and in good place. What this CH 01 means?


Your model is no longer in manufacture or available. However, I was able to locate the Owners Manual for you. It does not list a CH 01 Error Code, but does list other reasons why your unit want turn ON.

http://www.lg.com/us/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=LHD45EL&matchedModelCode=1000001989&searchEngineModelCode=LHD45EL&targetPage=support-product-profile&initialTab=documents#


In the past, I have recommended turning the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplugging the unit for 12-15 minutes. This will give the unit time to hopefully, reset itself. Then Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity control as you normally would. If it successfully reset itself, it should operate normally.

If you continue to have problems, contact LG Customer Support at 800-243-0000.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

Had same erroe code in 2008. CH 01. Bucket Full light was flashing, but it was empty. Would not start. Called customer service and was advised it was most likely a compresser problem. In that compressoe was still in warranty took it to a lacal service center. Compressor was Ok, but had to replace Evap Thermister Board and Sensor. $120.00 in parts and $50.00 labor.
I am not an expert.
Good luck.

Has ch 01 light on


I'm having the same problem. I spoke with LG today and this error code means the unit is not calculating the correct humidity percentage. I told him that I don't really care what percentage it calcs, I just want it to collect water. He told me there was no way to override this and that it will need service to operate.

Error Code CH 01


I have a Comfortaire BHD501 dehumidifier. A couple weeks ago I noticed ice building up on top of the unit,so I unplugged it to defrost. I plugged it back in and it worked until I noticed the "CH" "01" code. It would run a few seconds then shut off with that code showing. I took off the front of the unit and noticed rust on some of the metal parts. Then I took the cover off the circuit board for the front read out. I noticed corrosion on some of the solder points. When I looked closer at the plastic cover for the circuit board I noticed a small burn mark. The water from the melting ice must have run behind the cover and shorted out the circuitboard. At this point I don't know if new boards are available.

LHD65EBL Code CH 01


I had the same problem, and I wound up calling LG's customer support line. The rep I spoke with says that the "CH" code means that the internal thermostat is not able to accurately read the air temperature, and the unit will require servicing.

She gave me a couple of numbers for local folks, and I'll call them in the next day or so, but I'm thinking that this may not be worth the repair, unless it's pretty cheap: I bought the unit for under $100 less than 9 months ago, and I'm not eager to shell out a bunch of money to get it repaired.

Stopped Running - Control Panel CH 01


All, I had this same problem as well. I called the LG Support Line and they told me the unit needed to be serviced. I went through the motions of getting the service providers and what have you, but I wasn't going to go through with it because the closes service provider was a 45 minute drive. I posted how disappointed I was because I had only had the unit for a year, but could not find my earlier post.

Anyay, I am glad I went through the motions, because a few days later LG called and told me they would be shipping me a refurbished replacement. Wow. That was a treat. They shipped me a refurbished unit and had me send the old one back. I did not have to pay a dime. The sent me the Fedex shipping label via email and I called Fedex and they came by and picked it up.

I cannot remember if I had registered the unit when I initially purchased it. Sometimes I won't do that because it seems only to serve as a license to sell me stuff. They took down all my contact information and sent me the unit so I don't know. I would simply encourage everyone with the CH 01 error code to give LG a call via the support number from their website at lgappliances.com. Good luck!
