The switch that says 'Bucket is full' is not adjusted properly.
It will need to be adjusted, normally a screw driver or pliers,
so that when its empty the switch is not made or the contacts
are open.
If it is in adjustment properly, then the switch is bad and needs
replacing.
Before you replace it, check to make sure the wires leading to it
are not touching, it may be sending a signal meaning 'full' by
electricaly touching each other at the switch.

SOURCE: my dehumidifier keeps turning off

The most common problem is that the humidity extraction level is set to high. Set it to it's lowest setting. If you have an LED screen on your unit, the lowest setting will probably be 35%. Or in the case of no LED screen, Minimal will be the setting you want to use.

Since you're using a drain hose, I assume the unit is in the basement. If that's the case, the ambient air temperature at floor level, may be to cold for the unit to operate properly. Most dehumidifiers struggle at air temperatures between 40 and 60 degrees F. Try placing the unit up off the floor on something sturdy that can handle the weight (including a full tank of water) and the vibration during operation.

Hope this helped you trouble shoot and solve the problem.Please let me know. Thanks.

LD451EGL no water extraction


Apparently, the fans are running, but the compressor has shut down. It could be a failed compressor, or the charge in the system could have leaked out causing the compressor to shut down.

LG LD450EAL no power


Try resetting the GFI breaker, assuming it is connected to one. Also check the main breaker panel to make sure the breaker is not tripped. Unfortunately the electronic panels do go bad in these systems after a few years of service. Try resetting the unit. There should be a tiny reset button on the back. Also if the bucket is full it will not turn on, make sure it is in place and seated properly or it will not turn on. There may be a reset on the cord itself as well, hope this helps.

Says bucket full and it is empty


There is a float switch somewhere to measure the level of water in the bucket. That switch is out of position or broken. This can happen if you are not careful removing and re-installing the bucket. Look at the area around the bucket and you should be able to find and fix the switch. Make sure the power is off when you are doing this.

How do I hook this up to drain through a hose


The following link is to the Owner's Manual for your unit. Once the link opens, look to the right of the page and you will see Dehumidifiers Manual English. Click on that and the manual will download. Yours is a unique setup, so it's best you see not only the instructions, but also the pictures. Look at the section entitled Disposing of Collected Water, Page 12.

Timer switch mode is inoperable. no lights in timer setting, the lg ld450eal model operates continously. please advise how to program the 2 hour or 4 hour timer


With the Dehumidifier switch on, pressing the Timer Button should changed between 2hr and 4hr mode.

If this is what you're doing and it isn't lighting the LED nextto the 2hr and 4hr can you confirm what setting you have for the humidity?

I just purchased a second-hand LG 45 pint dehumidifier. I need an owner's manual, free if possible........ Thanks


Jenifay, take good care of your dehumidifier and do all the routine maintenance that is recommended in the Owners Manual. As this model has been discontinued.

The following link will take you to LG's Knowledge Base. On the right of the page, you will see Dehumidifier Manual English. Click on that, and you can download and print the manual for a 45 pint LHD4SEL Dehumidifier.

Since I was able to get you a free manual, would you be kind enough to rate my response to you?
Thanks.
