Question about Danby Dehumidifiers
I have a Danby dehumidifer model DDR5588RHE, was working fine, now the compressor shuts off after a very short time just the fan keeps running, and no water accumulates in bucket, filter is clean, no buzzing sound, how can i tell if the refrigerant has dissipated or if its some kind of switch sensor, humidity in the basement is at 70% or higher
It sounds like an issue with the control bord. This dehumidifier should have a 5 year warranty through LG. You will need to have this serviced. If it is under warranty by LG they will either refer you to a local repair shop and they will pay for the repair or they will replace it if you do not have a repair shop in your area. Call them and explain the problem to them. Make sure that you have your reciept. Here is the contact information for LG:

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.

dehumidifier doesn't seem to run often but the humidity in the room is
high, try adjusting the humidistat control on the dehumidifier to a
dryer setting. If the dehumidifier seems to run constantly, but there's
little or no water in the container, there may be a problem in the
refrigeration system. Try cleaning the unit. If that doesn't work, you
can't repair the refrigeration system yourself, you need a qualified
appliance repair technician to do that.
Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

My unit does not collect water any more. It was fine until I lent it to my brother in law and it was returned damaged. Do you know how to fix this
