Had same erroe code in 2008. CH 01. Bucket Full light was flashing, but it was empty. Would not start. Called customer service and was advised it was most likely a compresser problem. In that compressoe was still in warranty took it to a lacal service center. Compressor was Ok, but had to replace Evap Thermister Board and Sensor. $120.00 in parts and $50.00 labor.
I am not an expert.
Good luck.

I have a code on the screen CH 01... What do i need to do to get it to run again???


CH 01 Indicates that water collection tank is full and needs to be removed & emptied. Turn the unit OFF and unplug it, before removing the bucket.

The dehudifier won't come on in and in the digital display the message CH 01 comes up. Any idea what the problem is?


CH 01 usually indicates that the filter is dirty and needs to be removed and cleaned. Turn the unit OFF and unplug it, before removing the filter. Never operate the unit without the filter in place.

Hi, When I tried to start my dehumidifier, it won't work and indicate CH 01. The bucket is totally empty and in good place. What this CH 01 means?


Your model is no longer in manufacture or available. However, I was able to locate the Owners Manual for you. It does not list a CH 01 Error Code, but does list other reasons why your unit want turn ON.

http://www.lg.com/us/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=LHD45EL&matchedModelCode=1000001989&searchEngineModelCode=LHD45EL&targetPage=support-product-profile&initialTab=documents#


In the past, I have recommended turning the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplugging the unit for 12-15 minutes. This will give the unit time to hopefully, reset itself. Then Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity control as you normally would. If it successfully reset itself, it should operate normally.

If you continue to have problems, contact LG Customer Support at 800-243-0000.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

Code (CH) (01) on front panel, what does it mean?


I believe it is a water tank code. Re-seat the tank, unplug wait 15 seconds and replug the power cord and see if this resolves the error.

Background relating to other possibilities.
When the water bucket reaches its capacity, the bucket switch opens to shut off the dehumidifier. If the bucket switch fails while it is open, it will prevent the dehumidifier from running. To determine if the bucket switch is defective, use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If the bucket switch does not have continuity, replace it.

Has ch 01 light on


I'm having the same problem. I spoke with LG today and this error code means the unit is not calculating the correct humidity percentage. I told him that I don't really care what percentage it calcs, I just want it to collect water. He told me there was no way to override this and that it will need service to operate.

Error Code CH 01


I have a Comfortaire BHD501 dehumidifier. A couple weeks ago I noticed ice building up on top of the unit,so I unplugged it to defrost. I plugged it back in and it worked until I noticed the "CH" "01" code. It would run a few seconds then shut off with that code showing. I took off the front of the unit and noticed rust on some of the metal parts. Then I took the cover off the circuit board for the front read out. I noticed corrosion on some of the solder points. When I looked closer at the plastic cover for the circuit board I noticed a small burn mark. The water from the melting ice must have run behind the cover and shorted out the circuitboard. At this point I don't know if new boards are available.

Ch 01


Change the sensor assembly and all will be fine, about $30 from Appliance Factory Parts on line store, about an hour to do, all that is needed is Phillips screw driver to take unit apart.

LHD65EBL Code CH 01


I had the same problem, and I wound up calling LG's customer support line. The rep I spoke with says that the "CH" code means that the internal thermostat is not able to accurately read the air temperature, and the unit will require servicing.

She gave me a couple of numbers for local folks, and I'll call them in the next day or so, but I'm thinking that this may not be worth the repair, unless it's pretty cheap: I bought the unit for under $100 less than 9 months ago, and I'm not eager to shell out a bunch of money to get it repaired.
