if it's been in constant service for two years , has it even been cleaned ??? ,And i mean more than just the air filter , two years is a long time to have home air blowing thru this thing and im sure it's picked up a lot of common invisable house dust inside and now it's affected the operation of the unit

Find the model number. Put it into the search at
repairclinic.com, and you should get a whole
list of parts for this with pictures.
From there you should be able to find your part and
what it is. Get the manufacturer number and plug
it into ebay to get it for cheap.

Interesting problem. By the time you read this your carpet is full of mold. You need to put a blower under the carpet to move air through it. The dehumidifier will then adsorbe water from the air if it is operating.

Since you have a computer enter the name and manafactur into your search bar and it will probably find it for you. It may take a few tries.

Compressors have 3 or 5 tubes coming out of the can. Probably 3 in this case. The largest is the suction and the smaller one is the hot gas line. The 3rd is crimped and brazed over. The suction line should be cool or cold (no frost or ice) and the small one should be hot. Be careful of fans. Also, that small line is normally hot enough to burn you. If they are the same temperature, its either low or out of refrigerant (Very common), the liquid line could be plugged (Rare), or the compressor is not pumping (also rare). From here on, you need a compound refrigeration gauge and a line tap. An amp probe would be nice but not needed at this point. If you have an amp probe and the compressor is running and not pumping, the amps will be lower than the name plate RLA or FLA by quite a bit. The name plate should tell you what type of refrigerant it takes. 134A is the new standard but it could be different (R12). Knowing the right type is a must. I have seen compound gauges, line taps, and R134A in hardware stores but you can't add any refrgerant on less your sure no air has gotten in. If the pressure in the suction line matches up close to the ambient temperature when the compressor is off, it has refrigerant. With the gauge on the suction line, start the compressor. If the gauge drops into a vacuum of 25 inches or more, the compressor is probably OK but the refrigerant is gone. If the leak is on the suction side, there will be air in the system. The moisture in the air will freeze immediately at the metering device and it wont get cold. If it all leaked out its another whole process to find and repair the leak, evacuate the system and weigh in the proper charge. I hope this helps. There is a whole process for all of this. Let me know if you have the equipment. I'll get you through.

Turn the unit on and put you hand on the copressor to see
if it's vibrating. If so then it could be low refrigerant or a worn
If it's not vibrating then I would check the thermostat,
compressor relay, and compressor for continuity.
