Question about LG LHD45EL Dehumidifier
My LG dehumidifier (LHD45ELY6) won't turn on after more than a year of use. It was emptied a couple days after the "bucket full" light turned on, which I hope was not the problem.
Boys and girls, I hate to tell you this -- but those units are DEAD. I had the same problems as being discussed here (not turning on, electronic chirp, bucket full signals), but with one other important feature -- the unit became so hot that I couldn't touch the top. At first it sounded and smelled like the fan was jammed, and later it sounded like the compressor wasn't working.
Anyway, after two weeks of dealing with LG (1-800-243-0000, and be prepared to call back several times as they have a phone problem), they have finally decided to refund me the money on my unit. Give them a call and speak to them. Also, as my unit was intermittently working, I would recommend that you unplug your malfunctioning unit if you are having these problems. A dead dehumidifier is one thing, a house fire is quite another thing.

I emptied the bucket once a day and now it does not fill in a week. Live in Lakeland Fl. and humidity is high.
