Basement smells musty, fan won't stay on continuous


Barbara, are you running the unit in a continuous mode (i.e Using a hose to drain the unit)? Or is the water draining into the water collection bucket?

If you are not using a hose for continual drainage, the fan will not run constantly. It requires that, for continual operation.

Also, you may have the humidity extraction level set to high. Lower it to 35%. Also, remove and check the air intake filter, as it may need cleaning.

Dehumidifiers that are not Low Temp models have a difficult time operating in basement applications. Because the air temp at floor level is colder than at shoulder level. At temperatures between 40 & 60 degree F, regular dehumidifiers struggle to keep up. Raising it up off the flow on to a sturdy table, counter top, etc that can handle the weight of the unit, plus a full bucket of water can really help.

I hope this was of assistance and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Our LG LHD45EL 45-pint Dehumidifier is not collecting water. The fan is running, and there isn't any error message in the display. I have tried unplugging it for a while to see if it would re-set....

Our lhd 45 ely6 dehumidifier doesn't put out any water .it is only a few years old


Phil, there are 5 basic, yet solvable reason for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applicationsl. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

Hope this help to troubleshoot the above and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have a LHD 459ELT9 dehumidifier. Is this the high or low temperature model? I am dehumidifing a root cellar and the temperature is normally about 50-55 degrees.


Mike, the LT in the model number, usually indicates that it's a low temperature model. If you root cellar has an unpaved or unfinished floor, I would highly recommend that you raise the dehumidifier at least up a foot or two, off the floor. As the ground temperature is colder than the air temperature at shoulder level. Plus, it will help keep insects and critters out of it. Use something sturdy, that can handle the weight of the unit, plus a full bucket of water. Even if you are going to use the hose drain feature, rather than the bucket, I would still get it up off the floor.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

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?
