Sounds like a refrigeration problem, I am assuming the fan operates. Unplug it and let it set for about an hour. Plug it in and see if the compressor starts. If it does and you do not get water It is either low on gas or the compressor has failed. If the compressor does not start but hums it would need a new capacitor. If nothing the thermal overload has probably failed. This should get you started. Good Luck. If it is to involved they are not that expensive to replace.

SOURCE: not working

Hate to tell you, but it may be a goner. Many units have a rectangular air filter that may be clogged, but I would still expect to see some moisture removal. Without exact model I'll have to be general,.... remove cover (front or back, depends on model) to see cooling coils. If the compressor is running, these coils should be wet or may have a light frost on them for a time. Not = refrigerant leak. (not economical to repair) If you see one small area of ice,... it's also a goner. If the compressor does not run you could have a bad compressor, a bad defrost control, or a bad control / humidistat. Other than the filter or possibly a fan motor, these unit are rarely economical to repair.

Normal 0 When you push the power button, the blower fan comes on. In a few minutes you should hear a second "click"--that is your compressor starting. Do you hear that second click?

SOURCE: Frostguard 36 Dehumidifier runs, but collects no water.

unfortunately it sounds as though your refrigerant leaked out. If your compressor is running and no moisture, this is probably the case. What is the temperature of the air coming out?
