1 yr old and Stopped working

After one year of intermitted service my humidifier quit. The front display is dead, no lights. When I unplug the unit and plug it in again, I?ll hear as single beep. That is it, controls are non-responsive. Remove the cover and check the fuse, conductivity is good. What wrong????

    Thanks, I'll order and replace the main PCB assembly

Duane - was the 'single beep' problem fixed when you replace the main PCB assembly?

    I replaced a circuit board for this same problem and nothing changed at all. What gives?

My Humidifier is 2 years old. It worked fine and now there is an "EC" code on panel

Unit malfunction. Dehumidifiers are designed to function within specific temperate ranges, usually between 50 and 80 degrees. Make sure that the ambient temperature of the room is within the range of your dehumidifier. Try not to run it continuously.

We have a 40-pt Crosley purchased in 2005. Gave us 6 years of perfect service. It stopped working recently; it will not turn on. No lights, no response...dead. Is a unit this old worth repairing? ...

Shinn, I'd say you've gotten your monies worth out of 6 year old dehumidifier. Most of the time, it's more expensive in the end, to repair one than it is to purchase a new one. With that said, I'd vote for purchasing a new one. Just take as good of care of the new one as your did the old one. Obviously, you performed preventive maintenance on the old one and that's very important. Which makes you the exception to the rule, that most consumers don't take care of what they have and are astonished when an appliance fails.

Keep up the good work!

Zenith ZD30 dehumidifier - 1 1/2 years old stopped working had a half bucket oc colledted water in bucket when it stopped. I checked the fuse on the circuit board and have continuity.

Unplug from wall. Take the front cover off and disconnect the 2 wires that attach to the humidity control dial. Plug back in. If it works, the problem is the humidty control dial (mine just went bad). With it unhooked, it will run constantly, but will still turn off when the bucket is full. To turn off, simply unplug.

My 1 yr old Zenith ZD30 dehumidifier just stopped working all together. The bucket is empty and I checked the to be sure that a circuit didnt trip. Any suggestions as to what it can be?

The Zenith ZD30 is made by LG as many other brands are also. There is a fuse located on the control board. That may have blown. I have also had 3 LG units come into my shop with bad control boards. If the fuse is ok. Measure the ohms at the power plug L1 to Neutral, with the unit unplugged. It should read around 430 ohms. The ones with bad boards read real high. Hope this helps.

Humidifier measuring wrong %

This will need to be serviced. LG has a 5 year warranty on these models. 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 2 years old.

Does not collect water

ok Carmo

first remove the back of the unit and turn it on. it sounds like the fan motor may not be working.there by making the dehum get hot. make sure your filter and coils are cleaned. you may need a new motor. if so buy a new motor and fan blade.be careful with the 5/16th nut holding the fan blade. the blade might look good but you have to check the hole where it rides on the motor shaft. if you into the hole it should look like the letter "D" because the motor shat is shaped that way.---good luck
