Question about LG LHD459EL Dehumidifier
If your dehumidifier is freezing up then that probably means it is actually working well. The humidity level in the room is probably just relatively low and you probably have the unit turned up too high for the conditions.
Try turning down the setting on the unit so that it cycles on and off every few hours and does not run continuously.
Also try using some warm soapy water to clean off any dust or oily residue from the cooling coils in the rear of the unit.
The ambient temperature in the room may also be a bit too low, so you can try adding some heat to the room. Since warm air rises, you can even try lifting the unit higher up off the cold floor onto a bench or table where it is warmer.
I don't believe you need a new dehumidifier. Just try a few of the simple tips above and see if it works any better and stops freezing up.
Hope that was helpful, thank you and good luck.
