can find this model on sears and repairclinic sites

the compressor runs but the coils do not get cold
hence no water is accumulating in the tank bucket
i cleaned the coils the filter and the fan blade
i'm good with changing electrical parts but not the sealed system

An LG built dehumidifier.

Check the owner manual for warranty information.

On Goldstar/LG brand dehumidifiers--if the sealed system has failed and the unit is within 5 years old--the entire dehumidifier is replaced.
No sealed system repairs are done on dehumidifiers--cost prohibitive..

This recall involves certain models of the *Goldstar* & *Comfort-Aire* brands.

No LG or Kenmore brands are involved in this recall.

Lucky Goldstar

All of the other brands are marketed as a separate brand.

from wikipedia,
LG Corp founder Koo In-Hwoi established Lak-Hui Chemical Industrial Corp. in 1947.[3] In 1952, Lak-Hui (pronounced "Lucky", currently LG Chem) became the first Korean company to enter the plastics industry. As the company expanded its plastics business, it established GoldStar Co., Ltd., (currently LG Electronics Inc.) in 1958.

In 1959, Goldstar produced South Korea's first radio. Many consumer electronics were sold under the brand name GoldStar, while some other household products (not available outside South Korea) were sold under the brand name of Lucky. The Lucky brand was famous for its line of hygiene products such as soaps and Hi-Ti laundry detergents, but most associated with its Lucky and Perioe toothpaste.

In 1995, to better compete in the Western market, the company was renamed "LG", the abbreviation of "Lucky Goldstar". More recently, the company associates the letters LG with the company tagline "Life's Good". Since 2009, LG also owns the domain name LG.com.

Check the Basics first!!! Read the Manual !!!Buy the tech a Beer!!!
