The filter and coils might be clogged with dirt. Turn of the unit and unplug it. Look at the filter and coils to see if they need cleaning.

Freon is no longer used, it has been banned by the EPA. Never the less, the first thing you should do is clean the coils. If they are dirty, it will cause the unit to freeze up or frost over. Warm water and a mild dish washing detergent will do the trick. Wipe them off thoroughly and then dry them. Then apply a thin coating of WD40.
Another cause is using the unit in a basement application. The air temperature at floor level is colder than at chest level. Dehumidifiers struggle at temperatures between 40 & 65 degrees F (unless, you have a Low Temp Model designed for basement applications). Raising the unit up off the floor on to a sturdy table, counter top etc that can handle the weight of the unit and a full bucket of water, will generally resolve the problem
And finally, the defrost sensor may be faulty and needs to be replaced.
If none of the above solves the problem for you, have the refrigerant checked,. it may need to recharged.
Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.
