Question about LG DH404E Dehumidifier
When I plug the unit in nothing happens. The outlet has power, the removable water container is all the way in and makes contact with the red interlock button but the unit will not power on. It worked fine last season but now I have this problem.

The fall may have knocked out some wiring -- open the unit (remove back panel, then remove front by taking out screws inside) and see if any of the cables to the front panel or control board came out.

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.

Take cover off. First check the fuse on the circuit board. If it's blown replace it. That should get the motor running, the motor might be or is going out. If the motor is bad you'll have to replace the motor. If the fuse is good and the motor is good, unhook the wires on circuit board that go to the humidity control switch. If the unit comes on with the humidity control switch unhooked, you'll have to replace the humidity control switch. Sears has them for about $11.50. Hope this helps.
