Make sure that the filter and coils are clean. LG recommends that you clean the filter every 2 weeks. They also include a brush to clear the dust from the coils. If this does not solve the issue it will need to be serviced. If it needs to be serviced this dehumidifier has a 5 year warranty. If it is under 5 years old contact LG and they will either offer to have it serviced by a nearest service center or send you a replacement if a service center is not nearby.

I have a Kenmore 54501 Dehumidifier. Just plugged it in today and it runs but no water is in tank. What could the problem be? It worked great last summer and was not plugged in all winter.


You may have the humidity extraction level set higher than the humidity level in the house. Lower the level to 32 to 35%. Also, remove and check the air intake filter for dirt or clogs. Clean if necessary.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

The dehumidifier runs, cycles on and off, but there is almost no water in the receptacle. I haven't had to empty it since it started cycling on & off this season. I usually have to empty it at...


You may have the humidity setting to high. Try lowering it to 45%. Or if yours doesn't have an LED Screen, set it for minimum. Also, check and clean the air intake filter, if you haven't already. Keep in mind, most dehumidifiers have a fan that may seem to run constantly, but the compressor doesn't turn ON. The fan is circulating air, in a effort to detect humidity levels that are higher than what you have the humidity removal set on.

Hope this helped you.

The dehumidifier runs all day but there is only a little water being produced. We have humidity set at 35%, and the actual readings are much higher. This is only a year or so old. The last machine worked...


coolant may be low - warranty should be 5 years

If the room temperature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
I out mine over the floor drain.
Turn off and it will defrost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifiers work below a room temp of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensor from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.

My dehumidifier is frozen solid


Unplug it ... let it defrost.

Set it to a higher % humidity and make sure the fan is on its fastest speed. If you can set it not run continually (a selection option), do that. Also, set a small fan close by to move more air around the machine. If you have the option, put a hose on the collection device to drain to a sewer.

As your space starts to dry out, set the humidity setting to a lower number. This may take a week or more.

I believe perfect humidity is slightly above 50% - no need to try to get to 40% except in unusual circumstances. If that is the case, get a second device. Or, if your space is large, you may want to add a second device.


I hope this info helps you and your problem is solved.

thanks for using Fixya.com

Dehumidifier Present % indicates "Hi"


It is showing high because the present humidity is above 80%. Try turning the humidity setting down and let the dehumidifier run for a while. Once the dehumidifier lowers the humidity in the room this level will go lower. If this persists after running for a while you will need to contact LG for service. They back these models with a 5 year warranty. Here is the number to contact them at:

The condensing unit does not run consistently, it clicks on every minute or so.


It sounds like there is an issue with either the controller board or humidity sensor. LG has a 5 year warranty on these models. You may want to contact them first instead of opening it up because it could void the warranty. My recommendation is to have this serviced if it is under warranty. They usually will tell you of a service center nearby which will service it free of charge since it is under warranty. If you do not live near a service center they may ship you a replacement and you send your old dehumidifier back to them. Make sure you have your reciept when you contact them so they can verify it is under 5 years old.
