SOURCE: DH30 Dehumidifier Compressor Does not Operate

I just picked one up at a tag sale, seller said it worked sometimes. Seems to have the same problem as yours. I took the time to tweak all of the connections and then re-soldered the control board with no luck. I finally disconnected the humidity control and it worked fine. By disconnecting the humidity control the unit defaults to it's highest setting and you have to unplug the unit to turn it off. Conclusion so far is that the humidity control rheostat is bad.
Note: Now while running the fan runs continuously and the compressor cycles on and off every 10 to 15 minutes. This may to be normal since the unit appears to be doing its job and I'm not sure how it is supposed to run since a purchased it broken.

SOURCE: LG LD65EL Dehumidifier doesn't work properly

What do you have the humidity level set at on your dehumidifier? The average is 65%. Make sure you do not have it set at 75% because if you do this could be causing it to keep the humidity so high.

SOURCE: My LG (LHD45ELY6) dehumidifier turns on OK. I hear

Bring it back for warranty and they will send you a new one. The warranty is 5 years for everything. These LG units have a defective design and I was told the evaporator (or parts thereof) rust and leak. My repair store had rows of LGs in for repair. Most people avoid the hassle and buy another brand. If you have the time to call LG, bring it to a repair shop, wait for an assessment, call back LG for a replacement, you'll get a replacement. But you may have to do it all over again next year -- and until your warranty expires.

Hi... my dehumidifier compressor will not turn on, the fan runs fine and the time 2 hr/4hr cycles work, but the compressor wont kick on, the filter is clean and the unit is no more than 2 yrs old. Any...


Sounds like the compressor is inoperative. Most, if not all new units have no means of recharging the freon if it leaks out. If the coils are not cooling, the compressor is not operating and the unit will not dehumidify.

LG LHD65EL Dehumdifier Fan Noise


It sounds like the fan has etached from its hub. This usually is not repairable if that's the case. Replace the fan.

Year 2005 cycling fan and compressor


Your unit is probably operating in defrost mode. When you use a dehumidifier in a cold room, the condensing coils can freeze water. The unit senses this and thus stops the compressor until the water frozen on the coils melts. Then it resumes its cycle. This is a problem you will have during the winter months. It makes the operation of the unit inefficient, but this is otherwise normal behavior.

LG LD65E humidity variance


Is the compressor running or is it just the fan? If its just the fan it is because it is cycling the air and it uses that air flow to check the humidity in the air. If the fan runs non-stop and the compressor does not turn on or the fan does not shut off there is a problem with this unit and you will need to replace it. Since it is brand new you should still be able to return it to the store.

Unit runs a lot. Doesn't condense much water. Sometimes fan runs alone, sometimes compressor runs alone.


You may also want to check the coils and make sure they do not have dirt or dust on them. If they are clean you may have an issue with the refrigerant level which will cause the coils not to cool properly. For that you will want to contact LG. There could be an issue with the compressor also. LG backs alot of their models with a 5 year warranty. Contact them and let them know about your issue. Make sure you still have your reciept. Here is their contact number:
