Heat exhaust for the LG Dehumidifier LHD45ELY7

First off, the dehumidifer runs fine.
I am a maintenance guy in a care center. I would like to be able to vent the heat from the humidifier to the outside. It is just putting too much warm air into the room. The duct I use would be from 2-3 feet long to the window.
Since I fix, repair and build things daily, this is not a problem for me to build some sort of collector to attach the heat duct. My question/problem is this. I don't know what portion of the back is heat exhaust. Is it all of the 8"x15" grill on the backside, or is the bottom half of the grill the heat exhaust (7-1/2"x15"). It is hard to tell. It appears that some air goes in on the backside but just can't be sure.
I understand that my duct has to be the same volume as the exhaust, so I need to be able to calculate the area of the exhaust to determine the diameter of the flexible duct.
Tell me what you can.
Thanks, Bob

I have not resolved the issue yet.
I don't like getting into a web site, filling out a form with info and then after a click or two, find out I have to pay.
I'm sure you have experts that are very good, but I can't afford to join up with everything that run across. I'm sure it says that you have to pay on the first page, but I didn't see it.
Maybe some other time.
So, I'll just keep working at the problem until I get it.
Thanks.

My LHD45ELY7 freezes up. Why? Is it broken?


Assuming this isn't just a weather change, it probably needs cleaning. The unit is supposed to run the fan without the compressor intermittently to give the cold coils a chance to warm up a bit so the little bit of ice that normally forms can melt off. But once they get dirty, this melting and runoff is impeded. Spray some formula 409 (or similar) on the coils and rinse thoroughly. It is also possible that the unit is not switching over to run the fan only (without the compressor). This could be due to a bad temperature sensor, or it may be dirty or corroded so it thiinks the coils are a bit warmer than they really are. If you can find this sensor (it's usually attached to the coils with a little spring clip) see if you can't clean up where it makes metal contact (thermal contact) witht the coil. Good luck.

Ice keeps forming on top of my lg dehumidifer


MOst likely the room the dehumidifier is operating is is too cold for proper dehumidification to take place. Try warming up the room and I believe then your dehumidifier will work fine.

Dehumidifier won't shut off


Well your dehumidifer runs constantly. My guess seeing how you bought a 30 pint per 24 hrs. Your house better be 400sqft. It is under sized and humidity need to be 30/50 percent to stop mold growth. It cant keep up its two small 50 pint are for 1000sqft 65 pint is 1300sqft. Upgrade now!!!!!

It sounds like there is an issue with the controller board. 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.
