Question about LG LD50EL Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Evaporator Icing I have a 2 year old LG dehumidifier. It is a low temp humidifier that refuses to go in to defrost. I put the sensor in a freezer and checked it with an ohm meter and resistance does change. (can't remember the numbers) If I unplug the sensor from the PC board (unit running and froze) it goes in to defrost. If I reconnect the sensor back up it will just freeze back up again eventually. I am thinking PC board failed but would like to be sure it is not the temp sensor first. Can you tell me the temp vs. ohms relationship of the sensor? That would be a great help.

Unit forms ice on back coil. Please advise


The freon in the unit is low. You probably have a leak.

One-year old LG humidifier (LD450EAL) runs but no water is being extracted from the air - the hose outlet is dry. The hose is connected properly, and the compressor sounds like it's running, not just...


Alan, it may simply be a case of several things, that can easily corrected at home.

1. The Humidity Extraction Level is set to High. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Remove, inspect the filter and clean if necessary. It it's a
Washable Filter, allow it to thoroughly dry before reinstalling it.

3. Obstructed Air Flow. A minimum of 12" to 18" clear air around the entire unit, must be
maintained.

4. The ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees F. This is particularly true in
basement applications. The air temp at floor level is colder than the air temp at shoulder level.
Dehumidifiers don't work well in that temperature range (Unless, it's a Low Temp model). Raise
the unit up off the floor on to a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight of the
unit, plus a full tank of water.

If you troubleshoot the 4 things listed above, it may quickly solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Dehumifier blows out my electrical switch in my electrical panel.


You definitely have an electrical short in the unit and should stop using immediately. Have it checked out by a licensed electrician. It is a very real fire hazzard.

Doesn't collect water, freezes on top


clean filter and then check the coil behind the filter to see if clean. Biggest things that freeze a unit are dirty filter or coil...or low on freon.

The dehumidifier runs all day but there is only a little water being produced. We have humidity set at 35%, and the actual readings are much higher. This is only a year or so old. The last machine worked...


coolant may be low - warranty should be 5 years

If the room temperature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
I out mine over the floor drain.
Turn off and it will defrost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifiers work below a room temp of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensor from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.

No water is collecting on 2 year old lg humidifier


If when you turn your dehumidifier on the compressor runs then you should get moisture. Dehumidifiers work on the same principal as refrigeration. There is a bad control switch or the compressor start relay or capacitor is defective. If compressor runs and there is no effect then that is another problem. The filter should come out the front where the air goes in front and the filter should be washed by hand in warm degrease detergent water, dry and replace. If the disposable type filter I will help you contact LG.Thanks, Sea Breeze

Humidifier measuring wrong %


This will need to be serviced. LG has a 5 year warranty on these models. They usually will tell you of a service center nearby which will service it free of charge since it is under warranty. If you do not live near a service center they may ship you a replacement and you send your old dehumidifier back to them. Make sure you have your reciept when you contact them so they can verify it is 2 years old.

Humidifier is freezing up


I have the same dehumidifier and it does the same thing. but I was able to fix mine. It was not low on refridgerant. There is a temp. sensor clamped to the evaporater coil with a thin metal clip. The clip rusted out and the sensor fell out of position. I used a small stainless steel hose clamp and clamped the sensor back into position. It now works fine
