Bargain! Drive it the thirty miles - it'll be cheaper than getting a local technician out! Fan motors are expensive and can be difficult to fit.

Hi,
The problem is with a sensor...

Change the sensor assembly, Part # 6877A30013M from Appliance Factory Parts in Englewood CO, about $30. Easy to change, plugs into control board, remove old temperature probe by pry T-well open with small screwdriver and then crimping back closed when new sensor is installed, about an hour start to finish, hardest part is getting all the covers off. The sensor can also be found at RepairClinic.com for about $18.00 plus shipping. Their internal PN is 1462299. There is a new OEM... PN ending in "R" that replaces the old PN ending in "M".

SOURCE: Fault Codes

This is more of a tip since I have not actually fixed anything yet. As a test, remove the upper front cover where the buttons and displays are. (2 screws on the bottom then pull off a the plastic snaps) Inside the case on the far left, there is a piece of crimped copper tubing, open on the top end, welded to the refrigerant line, with a black sleeve covering 2 wires out the bottom end. This is a thermistor. I CAREFULLY applied heat with a butane lighter (the mini torch kind, not the "candle flame" kind), taking care not to burn anything. I applied ONLY enough to make it slightly warm to the touch. Do not think of melting anything, as this is not the purpose. Applying too much heat could damage the thermistor. With the bucket in place, the unit started right up. After I did this, it failed again in a few minutes, so I heated it again, and thus verifying it as the source. I have done it a third time, never getting it much over room temperature, and it is still running after almost an hour after doing nothing else. Since this temperature sensing is an analog function to the microcontroller that runs everything, the fault could be any bad connection or solder joint along the way from this thermister to the controller. But is sure appears something in thermistor. I hope my description is complete and clear. Good luck.

SOURCE: runs for a couple of minutes and then stops

Try cleaning out the air filter using cold water. I did not even know the unit had one until I had the same problem. Pull out the bucket. The filter is located where the front top edge of the bucket would be located if it were in the instrument. Remove it by pulling straight down. It may be taped to the instrument for shipping purposes. According to the manual, this should be done every month. I have had the machine since Katrina and this is the first time I have had a problem. Hope this helps.

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.

What does error code CH 24 mean?


The CH67 code is generally related to either a fan motor failure or a blockage to the air inflow. It is recommended to check the filter, and make sure that none of the vents are obstructed. If this does not resolve the matter, then the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at call_skype_logo.png800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....

LD451EGL no water extraction


Apparently, the fans are running, but the compressor has shut down. It could be a failed compressor, or the charge in the system could have leaked out causing the compressor to shut down.

Thanks for the post by Posted by Bill L on Jul 14, 2012.
I decided to take a chance and order the new Sensor assembly $20.50 and install it in my LG LD651EBL Dehumidifier which was giving me ch 67 errors. Wala, it worked, the error code is gone and the dehumidifier is now working perfectly! Thanks

Error code 67


Error code 67 is an airflow problem. Either clogged filter or bad blower motor. Unplug unit remove bucket and feel for filter in front behind cover it drops down. Clean filter with water and reinsert. Plug unit in turn to "on", fan should begin to run, after 3-5 minutes compressor should start. If fan does not start it is bad and should be replaced.

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.

I have an LG LHD65EBL dehumidifier. When I checked on it today the unit was not running and the display read "CH 01". I tried cleaning the filter, cleaning the front of the coils, and resetting the unit by...


Hi

The tank may be full. Your dehumidifier has a safety device that turns off the dehumidifier when the water tank is full. Usually the tank itself either presses against a switch or there's a device connected to the tank that triggers a switch when the tank is in place and full.


If you've emptied the tank and the unit doesn't run, inspect the place where the tank rests to see if there's a switch or mechanism that's not being activated. You may be able to turn it on with a simple flick of your finger.

Take care.

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.
