Question about LG LHD459EL Dehumidifier

1 Answer

My dehumidifier keeps shutting off when I turn it off. Its set at 35 and has worked up unitl a couple of days ago. The problem is it keeps shutting off after 1 or 2 seconds and the bucket full light keeps blinking even when the container is empty. I also raised the level up to 75 and still the same results.

Just bought a dehumidifier in the ground level of a high ranch I am very frustrated because I dump the water every day I waas told to keep the humidity at 45- 50 but it keeps on going up This seems to be a...


It isn't necessary you run it 24 hours a day. You can set it to be on for 2 or 4 hour intervals and then it Turns OFF. However, I am a bit concerned that you have the humidity extraction level set a bit high for a basement application. 50% is more than most basements need to be. Lowering it to 35%, will remove more humidity and eventually will run for shorter periods of time. It takes several days of operation for the dehumidifier to get the humidity under control.

If you have a floor drain in your basement, you can use a hose to daring the water, rather than having to empty the bucket daily (which is not that unusual). See your Owner's Manual on how to connect a 48" length of garden hose to the dehumidifier.

I hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

My dehumidifier kenmore model 580.52650 is working fine but turn off and turn back on every three minutes it is this dangerous, any solutions ? THANKS.


I think the problem may be caused by the humidity extraction level you have the unit set on. (i.e. It's set to high). Lower the humidity extraction level to 35%. This will allow the unit to run longer and extract more humidity, before it either shuts off, because the humidity level has been reached or the bucket is full and needs to be emptied.

Don't forget, the air intake filter should be cleaned regularly.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

My dehumidifier keeps turning off after it runs for about 20 seconds. I cleaned the filter. It still shuts off. Is it the condenser coils? Where are the located...how do I get to them...and how do I clean...


Jules, it may simply be the case of the Humidity extraction level is set to high. Lower it to 32-35% or in the case of your mechanical control, turn it to Maximum and that should make a significant difference. Be sure that you maintain at least 12" of clear air space around the entire unit.

To access the cooling coils, remove the bucket and the filter and you should be able to see them.

Hope this helps you.

If the humidity level is at or lower than 30%, the unit won't turn ON, until the reaches 35 - 40%. It's rare for the sensors to go bad. Just keep in mind, the dehumidifier is reading the humidity near the floor, not up at say, chest level. Humidity levels change every season, so this really would not be that unusual. Make sure that your clean the air intake filter regularly. Cleaning and wiping down the coolant coils would be a good idea, too..

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

Humidity pad doesn't work


You've posted in DEhumidifier section.

Sounds like you have a Humidifier. Please post there.

Although why you want to add humidity to the tropics is beyond me.

It is recommended that your settings stay at 35%. The ideal level of humidity in your house is anywhere between 30% to 60% depending on the weather outside.. I hope that this works for you. Have a good day
