It is not your relay. Mine did the same and the problem is the resistor that drive it goes short so the relay clatters as the circuit is trying to control it. The actual fault is the 78p153sp driver. You can change the transistor, a pnp will do the trick but the driver is dead. I'm currently looking for this IC and they're hard to find, cheap Chinese tat. So instead I'll likely fit a temp sensor that detects when the cooling coils reach about 4deg and switch the fridge off because shorting the relay will just cause the cooling to stay on and you'll get ice, it needs to cool, collect moisture, switch off, warm up and dump the moisture...crude but it works. This unit is worth saving.
Unfortunately, you will be hard pressed to find parts for your Amcor Dehumidifier. This British Manufacturing Company of electrical household goods went out of business 03/11/2009. Although, there are some of their appliances are still on the market, you can rest assured their warranty is useless.
I wish I had better news for you, but it is what it is. Thanks for choosing FixYa.
the thermal break is there for a reason, the motor has overheated, if this was due to a towel or other item covering the unit great remove the the obstruction and replace the thermal break. however the major cause is that the bearings have dried up on the motor and it has started to seize, which means replacement.
