Question about LG DH404E Dehumidifier

Does Not Collect Water

We have a three year old LG DH404E dehumidifier that no longer collects water. Power is getting through but it will not kick on even if we set the humidity level to 35%. Occasionally I can get it to kick on by repowering up. However, it kicks off after a couple minutes. What should I do and what brand is not made by LG? I need an alternative.

Best way to check the humidistat is with a digital or analog meter. Put the ohm meter on R1 if it's an analog meter. Put the two lead wires from the ohm meter on the humidistat connectors(pull off the wires,but remember where they go) while turning the humidistat knob the analog meter needle will move at a certain point then return to zero. If you have a digital meter the OL (open line) numbers will go to OO or a resistance reading will appear (such as 6.90 or 12.75 (these are just example numbers). If the humidistat is working,then throw away the unit, the freon is low or leaked out . Not worth fixing then. You can Google "humidistat" on dehumidifiers and also find ways to troubleshoot this item. Even a simple humidistat costs around 30 bucks,IF you can find one out there for your model.

Sounds like a faulty humidistat, but may also be nearly out of freon. I have a GE unit that is also a portable air conditioner...works great for 5 years now...

My lg dehumidifier is collecting ice on top and no water is collecting in waste. Is it dead? this is a new problem but machine is not old


Sounds as if the air filter may be clogged, which causes the coils to freeze. Unplug the unit and allow it to thaw. Once thawed, follow the Owners Manual"s instructions on accessing, removal and cleaning of the air filter. That should solve your problem.

It is defective. The coils are not getting cold enough to condense water in the air. If you have the receipt and the unit is less than 5 years old, give LG a call for warranty repair.
