Question about Goldstar DH504EL Dehumidifier
We have had the dehumdifier for a year or so and it worked fine up until a month or so ago. It runs like normal, but no water is ever collected. We recently bought another dehumidifier that is the same size as this one and it fills at least once a day so I know their is enough humidity for the other so it should work. It is not iced up or anything either. Any ideas as to what might be wrong?
I have the same problem - it runs, runs - but doesn;t collect any water - I have cleaned it and it sounds normal, etc. but still no water. Any other ideas?

I have the same dehumidifer - make and model. I bought it less than a year ago. It too runs fine, but now collects no water. Did you ever discover how to fix the problem?

Can I replace the freon? Or do I just by a new dehumidifier?

If everything runs, but it doesn't condense the humidity, it has a freon leak, and probably has no freon left in it.

I am having the same problem, the humidifier sounds like the compressor is running, but does not collect water. We have also only had if for just over a year (purchased 4/20/07) and did not use it over the winter.
I called the customer service center (1-800-243-0000), which is the LG service center. And the only thing they told me was to try and elevate the unit about 2-3 feet in the air. I told them that's ****, it wouldnt' make a bit of difference because we have it in the basement, and all of the air is very moist, not just the air near the ceieling. THEY WERE ABSOLUTELY NO HELP. I'm very disappointed with them.

Halver, you want to make sure that the compressor and fans are operating. Warm moist air is drawn over the cold evaporator coils where it condenses and drains. Dry clean air is drawn over the condensing coils, heated several degrees and returned to the room. If your evaporator or condensor coils are dirty, this could be one reason. Of course if the compressor is not running would be another reason. Check the air filter too. Catriver...post back
