If there are lights on the panel you can assume that the fuse is good. My problem was traced to a bad fan motor. Reason I suspected it was that neither motor speeds worked and I metered the winding from the ORANGE (common) to the RED and then to the BLACK wires on the motor connector after removing it from the circuit board. The problem was a tripped thermal fuse in the motor. The fuse is labeled 2 Amp, 220VAC, 130 degrees C. Search the internet for a thermal fuse with that rating. CAUTION: Be careful not to cut the winding wires. Keep point of sharp object close to the back of the outer wrap and away from the winding. If you can replace it yourself, carefully cut the outer wrapping close to where the orange wire goes into the winding. Cut the next layer of wrapping 1/2 inch away from the first layer's cut and carefully peel up and away. Observe the way the thermal fuse is positioned as the new one should be placed the same way. Replace the fuse and replace all the insulating tubes and the wrapping. The outer layed can be held in place with with a strip of masking tape. Re-assemble and enjoy. If you cannot do the work yourself, have the motor replaced in an appliance repair facility in your neighborhood. It is a good idea to order a motor yourself from LG and to take it to be replaced. One last comment: There is always a reason why these fuses trip. If you can't see a reason it is best to replace the motor. In my case, the motor was lacking lubricant. While I had it apart, I cleaned the inside of the bearing holes and the shafts. I applied a few drops of 3 in 1 oil in the holes and on the shafts then I re-assemble the motor.
NOTE: Use your own judgement on this repair. I assume no responsability for loss or damage that may result from my suggestion. If you do not trust your own judgment and abilities, have the repait done by a qualified service person.

Does the Fan on a Haier HD456E always run,


I believe the fan is designed to run all the time, and no, it costs very little to run an 18w fan. You can use a timed socket, or switch it on and off when needed. I don't believe the Haier has specific switching times.

Why does the fan run non stop? the compressor runs and shuts off but the fan just runs on high and low. I have 3 other dehumidifiers that the fan runs only when the compressor runs...why doesnt the...


Depending on the time sequence you have this unit set to run, Fredrich's are designed so that the fan runs almost constantly, to keep the air moving. When it senses a rise in humidity above the level you have it set on, the compressor turns ON and runs until the level of humidity is lowered. This is especially true, if you are operating this unit in continual mode.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Compressor runs and gets hot but fan will not kick on. Replaced the capacitor and that did not help. One side of coils gets hot, the other side gets cold, which seems normal. Just can't get the fan...


Don't run the compressor for any length of time without the fan operating. Is it possible that the fan must be replaced? Can you power the fan safely to test it?

Can you please help me find out what makes my fan motor slowly stops running after about 30 minutes. The unit runs fine but after about 30 minutes the motor sounds like it slowing down and wants to trip....


mcdevito75 here, It could be the capacitor if you can replace with same size do so. The Armature or communtator in the motor could be shorting also, do the capacitor the change the motor.

Fan quitting on unit


Maybe the room is dry enough so the humidity sensor is turning it off?

If not, maybe the thermisensor(fuse) on the fan motor is failing?

106.57 fan runs does not work


It is dry this time of year. There may not be any water to pull out of the air.

Chris, as you may know, a dehumidifier is nothing more than a 'de-tuned' AC unit in a small package. If you are sure you have excess moisture in the air, (ideal humidity is 50%) and you have tried running a fan to circulate the air where the unit is located, your unit may require professional service.

LG LD65E humidity variance


Is the compressor running or is it just the fan? If its just the fan it is because it is cycling the air and it uses that air flow to check the humidity in the air. If the fan runs non-stop and the compressor does not turn on or the fan does not shut off there is a problem with this unit and you will need to replace it. Since it is brand new you should still be able to return it to the store.
