Question about LG Heating & Cooling
Fixing and recharging air conditioners and refrigeration can only be done by licensed engineers. 'Freon' isn't used any longer, it R104 or similar. An engineer will use a spray to find where the leak is, fix it, suck out all the air, refill with Nitrogen, test for leaks again, then suck that out and refill with the correct number of pounds of refrigerant. It is the only way.

SOURCE: freon leak
This is NOT a member of the family. The sealed system repair cost (to replace the evaporator) would exceed the price of a replacement dehumidifier. (even if it is in warranty, most all manufacturers will replace it rather than do a sealed system repair on it) Buy a new one.

It can be difficult to fix a leak without the proper tools. Hopefully the leak will be in a flare nut that can be tightened, or sometimes repairmen will forget to tighten the service port nuts. The service ports are where the copper lines connect to your outdoor unit and service guages would connect as well.
You can try to make you some real soapy water solution in a bowl. Take a little paint brush and brush it on to every connection you can find on the copper lines. You can buy a small container of soap bubbles at a plumbing or air cond supply house. In order to weld a leak though, you will have to relieve all refrigerant out of the unit and use a torch, then re evacuate the unit and charge it back up. This would take a repair man. Good luck
