ALL DEHUMIDIFIERS REQUIRE ROOM TEMPS TO BE AT LEAST 65 DEGREES AND A HUMIDITY OF AT LEAST 50 % TO OPERATE PROPERLY. ANYTHING LESS AND IT MAY FREEZE THE EVAPORATOR COILS. EVAPORATOR COILS WILL ALSO FREEZE IF THE COILS ARE DIRTY AND HAVE RESTRICTED AIR FLOW.TRY TAKING THE COVER OFF OF THE UNIT AND CLEANING BOTH SETS OF COILS INSIDE. THEY ARE COPPER OR ALUMINUM WITH FINS ON THEM.
ALSO CHECK THE FAN TO BE SURE IT IS RUNNING.
THAT WILL CAUSE AN OVERHEATING CONDITION AND WILL SHUT DOWN THE COMPRESSOR ALSO.

take out bucket and locate bucket full switch, depress it, if unit works you will need to add shim to bucket to hold it in.

There is likely a switch operated by a float to turn that light on and turn off the compressor, sometimes manufactures use a rubber "O" ring on the float shaft and they can slip. take the cover off the pump and check the float or in some cases one of two floats are used. Once float turns the pump on and off and the second float shuts OFF the compressor and turns ON the full reservior light.

If the unit is titled forward at all, the "full bucket" "trip switch" will not trigger off as it should. Be sure the unit is on a flat, level surface, or leaning backward slightly--this also aids drainage through the drain tube, if that's your set-up.

Diane, the float valve in the left top of the bucket (it's styrofoam) is stuck and can't shut the unit off when the bucket is full. To help you solve this, I am providing a link to your Owners Manual that will help you with this problem You can download and print the manual for future reference Be sure to turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit, before attempting to solve this problem.
Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please take a moment to rate my response to you.
