You have a bad compressor. The clicking sound is the thermal relay resetting.

Kenmore 54701 (70 pt) dehumidifier is not prerforming properly


could be a bad humidistat or a bad PTC relay on the compressor, check for voltage going to compressor, and check neutral continuity, if there is both then you have a bad compressor, check warranty on comp replacement, if no voltage then the humidistat is probably bad

01% humidity


When you push the power button, the blower fan comes on. In a few minutes you should hear a second "click"--that is your compressor starting. Do you hear that second click?

The compressor is located in the rear bottom on the right side looking at the machine. After you press the start button and the blower fan comes on, bend over near the back of the unit and listen for the "click".

Running but not collecting water...


Sorry to be vague in advance. I am a bit confused as to the compressor seems to be running bit. If the unit is on you should hear the compressor making a continuous noise. What you have described over a relay going click every fifteen secs could be the compressor overload / relay. If it is then the compressor is trying to start hence the dimming lights. Either way I would suggest one of two scenarios either the compressor is faulty or cannot start due to the relay or the unit is short of gas. Eiher way not a good scenario. I would suggest a tech to confirm or spend the money towards a new unit. Hope this helps.
