How do I access the
To find and remove the filer. First, turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Then remove the water bucket. The filter frame & handle will be located at the top of the bucket holder just behind the front louvers. If you have never removed and cleaned the filter, it may have a piece of plastic tape on it, which was used for shipping. Remove the tape & discard it. Pull the filter frame's tab handle straight down and remove the filter. It can either be vacuumed or if it's really dirty, washed in warm water and a mild dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly and shake off any access water. Allow it to dry completely, before reinstalling it. Never operate the unit without the filter in place. Doing so could cause damage to the unit.
Clean the filter at least once every two weeks.

LHD659EBL The fan runs as normal, compressor runs
The icing is generally caused but 4 basic things:
1. The air intake filter is very dirty or clogged and needs to be removed and cleaned.
2. There is not enough clear air space surrounding the unit. You need to maintain 12" to 18" around
the entire unit.
3. The cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. This can be accomplished using a sponge
dipped in warm water mixed with a mild dish washing liquid, rinsed, wiped dry and the applying
a light coating of WD40.
4. The dehumidifier is being used in a basement, where the air temperature at floor level is colder
than at shoulder level. Dehumidifiers struggle to work at temps below 65 degrees F. Raising the
unit up off the floor, onto a sturdy table or counter top will generally solve the problem. It must be
sturdy enough to handle the weight of the unit, plus a full tank of water.
A less common problem is a small leak in the cooling coils. Which allows the refrigerant gas to escape and frost the coils.

Will not turn on no
No, no breaker. It may simply be the case of the water collection bucket is not installed properly. When that happens, nothing will work. Remove the bucket and check the top of the inside of the bucket for a float valve (if yours is so equipped). It may be stuck in the 'UP' position, which makes the unit think the bucket is full & everything turns OFF. If you see one, and the float valve is UP, jiggle the arm of the float valve to get it to return to the DOWN position.
Whether your unit has a float valve or not, when you reinstall the bucket, be sure to install it "squarely" from top to bottom, so that it makes firm contact with the bucket safety removal switch on the back wall of the bucket holder. When installed properly, the bottom of the bucket should not tilt down at all.
If none of the above solved solved the problem,it may be an electrical issue. The circuit breaker for the outlet it's plugged into may have tripped. Check your home's circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker. If you find one, unplug the dehumidifier before resetting the circuit breaker. Also, the wall outlet may be damaged or have a loose wiring connection.
All of the above are things that you should troubleshoot first. It's a process of elimination to determine what is causing the problem.
I hope this has helped to get you started on solving the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.
