Question about Kenmore 53701 Dehumidifier
The fan runs constantly. The compressor starts, hums about 2-3 seconds than kicks off. It does this right from initial start up, so it is not frosted up. When auto airconditioner compressors do this they are usually low on coolant. Can this be repaired or is a new one in order. The unit is only three years old.

Tips for a great answer:
So I just had this happen with my Frigidaire fad704dwd dehumidifier. I went to basement and heard it running and sounded off. The compressor was running fan was off which is bad and humidity said 30. I then pushed the off button and it stayed running. I was able to fix it. To make long story short it was a bad ground. I took the plastic back, sides, and front off. There was a green ground (main ground) and Green/yellow ground (fan ground) on the front coil with a bunch of rust. Removed the grounds connected them both together and cleaned the surface area and used a new stainless screw nut and screw to remount the wires to evaporator coil. Everything started working fine after that and I put it back together. Good Luck
