Question about DeLonghi DE40P Dehumidifier
It is now frozen because the humidistat, which controls the on/off cycle, is starting to age and forgetting to turn off the dehumidifier. Try removing the humidistat and, using compressed air, blow it out thoroughly of any dust. Then spray the rotary control area, including electrical parts, with WD-40. Then, blow dry again with the compressor and try again.

I have the same problem. Very annoying. My suggestion is to go to your nearest dealer and throw the unit through their front window.

I live in NJ and the nearest center is in CT. So you can imagine that I am not gonna to ship my unit! :-)
The one I got is from Hartford, CT Utility Electric Service: 860-246-7271; talk to Dana and he is very helpful. They charged me $25 and shipped me the part and it now works fine.
When I talked to Dana he sounded pretty sure it was the condensor sensor. Simply call Dana and tell him that you have an "E3" code. I do NOT know the part number or ID.
Don't open the unit until you get the new part ---- it will help you to identify the part to be replaced. After you get the part, make sure you mark down all the screws (they are not the same! so pay attention which one is where). There are two tabs on the top so be careful when get them separate apart ---- don't force it or you might break it. The sensor itself is attached/stuck in between the copper coils under a black cover. Plug another end to the control board and you are done. Apparently there are two kinds of plug-in end ---- the first part Dana shipped to me did not match the old part so he has to send me another one which worked.
The whole procedure is not that difficult, but when you are doing this the first time you just need to be patient to locate all the screws and sparate the covers. From my experience you do need to take all covers off, otherwise you can not see the part and the wire.
Good luck to you and let me know the good news!

Be Safe or don't do it....
On the side with the lint screen, remove the five screws holding the top panel in place. The sensor that needs to be checked in mounted on the radiator fins. Remove the sensor and 4 pin connector. With a pin, remove the loose fitting housing the "sensor"...a circuit board that "shorts" with condensation...check corrosion and look for component damage on the oft chance the circuit board was damaged by some inappropriate poking or mechanical failure. Reassemble and replace sensor...
For a short life span...or out of warranty and only at your risk (IF have significant other or kids or pets or human DNA... don't do this...) .. guide wire through screen notch and attach to outer screen. Build fortress around exposed sensor and talk to insurance agent for a special rider...seriously be careful.
Did you? Clean screen and GENTLY clean fins of lint, etc....(vacuum's brush head should do the trick...)
Taking all appropriate safety precautions.
Here's the 100,000 (yen) tip....with humidifier unplugged, hold down the power button (green button in lower center) and plug in the appliance.
Watch the LCD screen as it conducts a self test...and wha...lah!.
Should have a working humidifier!
no really..."de nada". :"don't touch your moustache" "Doye toche moche"(?), "prego".
