Question about LG LD65EL Dehumidifier

1 Answer

LG LD65EL Dehumidifier doesn't work properly

Sometimes the unit will run but not condense moisture for days - reversing valve actuated? Sometimes the compressor runs with no fan. Sometimes the fan runs with no compressor - condensor relay problem or thermister? After shutting the unit off for an hour, it may start to work properly and then after a few hours, run but not condense. The basement is about 68-70 degrees and up to 75% humidity when the unit fails to operate. I have cleaned the filter and the coils are very clean.

    Very long wait. I'll have to come back. Danny

    Thank you. The dehumidifier is set for 60% which kept the room at 50% when working properly. Now, the fan and compressor both run but after a short time the cooling ceases and no water is condensed. Overnight the humidity can reach 65% with the unit operating.

What do you have the humidity level set at on your dehumidifier? The average is 65%. Make sure you do not have it set at 75% because if you do this could be causing it to keep the humidity so high.

    You may also want to check and make sure the timer option is not set. There is an option for 2 hour and 4 hour operation. It will then run for 2 hours on and 2 hours off or 4 hours on and 4 hours off depending on the setting. I do not use this setting on my LG dehumidifier. If you do not have it on timer and the coils along with the filter are clean I would recommend calling LG because they back this model with a 5 year warranty. They usually offer 2 options:



    1: Have a local repair shop fix the dehumidifier and they cover the bill.



    2: They will process an RMA and they will mail you a return shipping label. Once your model is recieved they will send you a replacement.



    Make sure that you have your reciept to show it is still under warranty. I see you rated my solution as thanks for trying. If you found this solution helpful I ask you to please reconsider the rating. Thanks - Tech101

It seems as if the unit makes the room warmer. Is this normal?


Hi,
Yes the heat is a byproduct of the compressor running....there will be a slight overall heat gain...this is very normal and nothing to be concerned about....the dehumidifier passes the air over a cold coil to pull out the moisture but also discharges the heat into the room...so... the net result is heat gain in the amount of electrical energy the dehumidifier is using...

The coils frost up for Kenmore dehumidifier model 580.53701300 even the temp is > 70. the fan works fine. there is a few water in the water bucket. the humidity> 65%.


check the drain tube for blockage, maybe run a small rubber hose to clear out blockage so condensation can drain freely. Worth a try worked for me

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

Unit runs a lot. Doesn't condense much water. Sometimes fan runs alone, sometimes compressor runs alone.


You may also want to check the coils and make sure they do not have dirt or dust on them. If they are clean you may have an issue with the refrigerant level which will cause the coils not to cool properly. For that you will want to contact LG. There could be an issue with the compressor also. LG backs alot of their models with a 5 year warranty. Contact them and let them know about your issue. Make sure you still have your reciept. Here is their contact number:

Puts off a lot of heat


Additional heat from a dehumidifier should only be the electrical heat generated from the compressor. This is due to the fact that the cooling coil and condenser coil (hot bit) are normally located next to each other with a common airflow so the heat generated should be minimal. Hope this helps.

Vertical draining


Water only runs down hill. To accomplish your task you would need a small condensate pump to get the vertical lift to transfer to your sump. as an example "http://www.hartell.com/corp/details/0,,CLI1_DIV32_ETI3740,00.html"
