Problem with Danby dehumidifier not collecting any water

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

SOURCE: Dehumidifier runs but does not condense water.

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:

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: Dehumidifier does not collect water.

If your 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.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Dehumidifer shuts off when tank is only 1/4 filled


Sensor calibration . Make sure you are using the factory bucket, I believe it senses the weight of the bucket and water combined.Check and make sure the platform is not taped for shipping .

Humidty reading remains at 84%


Dehumidifiers are generally a very simple appliance, however a humidistat is one of those items a person tends to rely on to provide feedback. You may want to remove the grille area where the humidistat is mounted and inspect for foreign material in the way of the sensor. If nothing foreign is detected then you should replace the humidistat.

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
Thank you,

Unit Runs (fan and condenser) but no water?


By condenser I assume you mean the compressor is running. Is there ice forming on the front coil?
