SOURCE: 20% humidity reading
Hi, I just cleaned my dehumidifier and had the same problem as you. I used a spray water bottle and was not aware that the humidity sensor was being soaked. Very stupid of me!! Luckily I have two same dehumidifiers and used the other sensor to replace the one that I so stupidly ruined, and behold my machine worked again. Now I have to buy another sensor. To make sure we are talking about the same thing, my sensor is white,about 1 inch by 1/2 of an inch. It as 4 wires connected to it. To access it you remove the water tank, you will see 2 screws. Remove those, and pry the front panel loose. Be careful the top of the panel is held by two plastic hooks, they break easy. The sensor is located on the right side just above the radiator, under a produting oval lip which as foam around its rim. The wire colors are red black blue and yellow. Good luck Herman

fan should turn off when compressor not running, the relay switch is stuck open for the fan, and probably needs replacing, but even if it always runs there is no harm and it only uses like 15 watts

If the humidity level is at or lower than 30%, the unit won't turn ON, until the reaches 35 - 40%. It's rare for the sensors to go bad. Just keep in mind, the dehumidifier is reading the humidity near the floor, not up at say, chest level. Humidity levels change every season, so this really would not be that unusual. Make sure that your clean the air intake filter regularly. Cleaning and wiping down the coolant coils would be a good idea, too..
Hope this helped you. Please let me know.
