Delonghi DNC65 Dehumidifier not working, thermal fuse?

Hello, i am trying to repair a Delonghi DNC65 Dehumidifier. It stopped working when a towel fell onto it and blocked the air output while it was still running. Just to clarify, when i say 'not working' i mean it doesn't power on at all. Do you know which parts i may need to replace to get it working again? Thanks

IS THE ROOM HUMIDITY LOW. IF IT IS BELOW 30% THE HUMIDISTAT WILL SHUT DOWN THE UNIT. THE AMMBIENT TEMP SHOULD BE ABOVE 65 DEGREES AND THE HUMIDITY SHOULD BE ABOVE 50 %.

SOURCE: Delonghi Dehumidifier DE500P - Code E3

Hi Thomast5263,
I live in NJ and the nearest center is in CT. So you can imagine that I am not gonna to ship my unit! :-)
The one I got is from Hartford, CT Utility Electric Service: 860-246-7271; talk to Dana and he is very helpful. They charged me $25 and shipped me the part and it now works fine.
When I talked to Dana he sounded pretty sure it was the condensor sensor. Simply call Dana and tell him that you have an "E3" code. I do NOT know the part number or ID.
Don't open the unit until you get the new part ---- it will help you to identify the part to be replaced. After you get the part, make sure you mark down all the screws (they are not the same! so pay attention which one is where). There are two tabs on the top so be careful when get them separate apart ---- don't force it or you might break it. The sensor itself is attached/stuck in between the copper coils under a black cover. Plug another end to the control board and you are done. Apparently there are two kinds of plug-in end ---- the first part Dana shipped to me did not match the old part so he has to send me another one which worked.
The whole procedure is not that difficult, but when you are doing this the first time you just need to be patient to locate all the screws and sparate the covers. From my experience you do need to take all covers off, otherwise you can not see the part and the wire.
Good luck to you and let me know the good news!

SOURCE: Stopped Running - Control Panel CH 01

All, I had this same problem as well. I called the LG Support Line and they told me the unit needed to be serviced. I went through the motions of getting the service providers and what have you, but I wasn't going to go through with it because the closes service provider was a 45 minute drive. I posted how disappointed I was because I had only had the unit for a year, but could not find my earlier post.

Anyay, I am glad I went through the motions, because a few days later LG called and told me they would be shipping me a refurbished replacement. Wow. That was a treat. They shipped me a refurbished unit and had me send the old one back. I did not have to pay a dime. The sent me the Fedex shipping label via email and I called Fedex and they came by and picked it up.

I cannot remember if I had registered the unit when I initially purchased it. Sometimes I won't do that because it seems only to serve as a license to sell me stuff. They took down all my contact information and sent me the unit so I don't know. I would simply encourage everyone with the CH 01 error code to give LG a call via the support number from their website at lgappliances.com. Good luck!

Delonghi Dem 10 dehumidifier has stopped working - the 'operational light' turns on, but the fan does not start up so nothing happens.


It could be that the fan / fan motor has seized or jammed. Have a look through the vents and see if you can spin the fan. If not, you will need to strip the machine. Try lubricating the bushes / bearings. Often on these type of units, the vapours dry out the bushes and then they get tight and jam the fan.

You may need a new fan motor. If you can get to this
motor, with the power disconnected, see if the blade
is free to move. Do you hear any sound coming from
this unit?

Delonghi dessicant type dehumidifier DNC65 The dessicant disc motor is operating but the other motor does not. I need a need a repair manual outling the the operation of the appliance to enable further...


Well although this is an old question, for the benefit of anyone who finds this in the future, the main reason for the main fan motor to stop working is due to the overheating of a tiny thermal fuse inside the motor itself. These fuses are one shot (meaning that if they trip, they will need replacing)

The good news is, that they cost about 99p to replace, the bad news is that you would need to strip down the unit and open up the motor in order to do that. This is a delicate operation and requires a steady hand, a soldering iron etc. the fuse you are looking for resembles a small resistor. usually located in a section of fibreglass insulation sleeve as the incoming wires connect to the motor windings. A fuse is easy to test using any multimeter a good fuse will show continuity and a dead fuse will show... nothing (open circuit) You would need to buy a replacement thermal fuse rated for the same temperature as the failed one (usually 115'C) and capable of passing mains voltage (240Vac) Cut out the old fuse and solder in the new one (it does not matter which way round it goes) Replace any sleeving and cable ties inside the motor and reassemble.

WARNING - do not attempt repair unless you are SURE you know what you are doing!!

My DeLonghi Portable Dehumidifier Model DEM10 has stopped working. It doesn't make the same noise when you turn it on anymore i.e the slight refridgerator sound. Does this sound like a repairable problem...


Hello,

First, make sure the reservoir is empty. If you plug the unit in and see a green power light, but the unit won't run, make sure the reservoir is properly inserted. Many dehumidifiers have switches or sensors to make sure that the reservoir is placed so that it won't leak. Look for these sensors and make sure the reservoir is engaging them. If your dehumidifier has a float or switch to indicate a full reservoir, make sure this switch isn't being tripped accidentally.

Good luck.

My DeLonghi dehumidifier model DE500P is tripping the breake


the motor is tight, (can't turn) lubricate the motor bearings with light machine oil. retest. rust causes this. the motor "tries" to turn, more power is needed, still can't turn, power exceeds safe limits: breaker trips.
