The dehudifier won't come on in and in the digital display the message CH 01 comes up. Any idea what the problem is?


CH 01 usually indicates that the filter is dirty and needs to be removed and cleaned. Turn the unit OFF and unplug it, before removing the filter. Never operate the unit without the filter in place.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

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.

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.

UNIT ICED UP. TEMP. IN CRAWL SPACE ABOVE 60 DEGREES. AFTER DE-ICING UNIT IT RAN FOR A WHILE AND THEN STOPPED. IT SHOWS CODE CH 01AND THE BUCKET FULL LIGHT IS BLINKING, NOT STEADY ON. POWERED DOWN UNIT...


When you powered down the unit, did you just turn if OFF using the controls on the unit Or did you unplug it entirely? If you didn't unplug it, it won't reset itself. Leave it unplugged for at least 30 minutes. As far as the blinking bucket full light is concerned ... It's possible that the bucket is slightly out of kilter and is only making partial contact with the safety switch. Especially if it's sitting on uneven soil or when the bucket get partially full the weight of the bucket is pulling it out of kilter because it's sitting on soil, rather than a hard floor. If nothing else, place it on a 1/2" piece of plywood or OSB and level it.

To be totally candid, I have some concerns about leaving a dehumidifier running, unattended in the crawl space of a house. There's to many things that could go wrong that would have disastrous results.

The bucket full light flashes even though its empty and inserted correctly and the humidity level is stuck at 1%. The unit as a whole just seemed to stop working.


I have the exact same problem. I suspect this is the same as the "CH 01" problem others had with a different unit that seemed to be the bucket switch. I still need to confirm.

What is a code CH 01


Had same erroe code in 2008. CH 01. Bucket Full light was flashing, but it was empty. Would not start. Called customer service and was advised it was most likely a compresser problem. In that compressoe was still in warranty took it to a lacal service center. Compressor was Ok, but had to replace Evap Thermister Board and Sensor. $120.00 in parts and $50.00 labor.
I am not an expert.
Good luck.
