It will not turn on. Is there a reset button? It worked fine for over 5 years, then it just quit.

The micro switch on the unit that shuts off the unit when the water bucket is full is bad,it carries the full current load all the time of the entire unit and they do go bad,you can just bypass it or replace it,if bypassed then it wont shut off when the water buckets full though

Hi, Sounds like the circuit board...they often will just do that...IF you can get one it will be half the cost of a new unit...
There are many reasons why a dehumidifier willnot work or collect water.
Here is a tip that I wrote to help people to figure out what is going wrongwith their dehumidifier

Hi , was working fine last year but now is now


There are 5 basic, yet solvable reasons for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

When I plug my LG dehumidfiyer Model LHD659EBL I hear a small beep and nothing happens. I can not turn it on or get a light on the panel to even light. This unit is only a few years old and it worked fine...


Remove the water collection bucket and reinstall it. Make sure the bucket fits "squarely" in the holder from top to bottom. The bottom should not tilt down at the bottom, when it's properly installed.
While you have the bucket out, look in the top of the bucket for a float valve. If it has one, it may be stuck in the UP position. Juggle the float arm to get it to return to the DOWN Position and reinstall the bucket as described above.

Either of the tings mentioned above, will cause the unit to not turn ON.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Unit was working fine and simply quit. There is power to the unit however it does not turn on there are no lights . The resevoir is not full but the unit does not work


It may simply need to be reset. Turn the Master ON/OFF switch to OFF. Unplug the unit and wait 12 - 15 minutes before plugging it back in. Once its plugged in, turn ON the Master ON/OFF switch and set your controls. If it's not working then .. check the position of the water collection bucket. It may not be tripping the safety switch. Also be sure that the unit is sitting on a level surface.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot the problem.

Dehumidifier leaking onto floor.


You should clean off the condensor coils with a vaccum and soft brush. Also, check up inside the area where the condensate drips into the collection reservoir (or goes directly into a hose attachment discharge) to see if something is partially obstructing the water flow and is dripping onto the floor, etc.

You might find that you've got some buildup of dust, dirt, and some other gunk that is mis-directing the water (condesate) that the dehumidifier is drawing out of the air.

Lastly, check the unit to see if it's level, but frankly, I highly doubt that's the issue, based on the 5+ years of good working service for you.

So long as the unit is still running and keeping the humidity in check, (if the above steps don't resolve the issue), I'd continue using it until it finally quits running, but I'd put a plastic boot/shoe mat under it to catch the small puddles of water.

The dehumidifier should draw the small puddles, so it'd be less expensive to get a $4 boot mat than dropping another $240+ for a new unit, as your's seems to be working fine, aside from the occaissional puddle issue.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Powers on but will not remove any moisture


It seems these units only last about a year or two before this happens. Unless you can get it replaced under warranty (mine had 5 year warranty) you probably will be better off getting a new one. They leak their freon out and then just run, usually forming ice near the top of the unit in the front. Classic case of not enough refrigerant.

Unfortunately this is quite common for most DH's of this type. The only one that I have found that does not have a reputation for losing the fan or compressor after a year or two is the Whirlpool.
