Power OFF button doesn't work; unit keeps running, overflows, and doesn't stop
I have the same problem! The "pcb" referred to in the previous reply is undoubtedly what Sears refers to as the "COVER ASSEMBLY, DISPLAY", part number 3551A20109B. It is possible, but highly unlikely, that the defective part is the ESCUTCHEON, p/n 3831A20079D. Sears lists the cost of the COVER ASSEMBLY, DISPLAY as $17.25 plus, undoubtedly shipping and tax. The part seems to be available only from the Sear Web Site under "PArts Direct". This dehumidifier is a piece of garbage. I previously had to replace the SENSOR ASSEMBLY, p/n 6877A30013L. This item turns off the unit when the water tank is full. This dehumidifier has my room flooded - twice - when the unit failed to turn off and overflowed.
While under waranty Sears/Kenmore attempted to repair the unit five times. They never succeeded and when the warranty ran out they would not repair the unit unless I paid for it. Thats when I started doing my own repairs!
