It keeps cycling through the dump ice phase. Does this 2-3 times then just stops and the tray is not level. Never fills tray now. I'm thinking maybe the tray jumped a few teeth. I've seen times when ice would build up and block the tray sometimes.

If the hose is still connected and it's not clogged, the water shouldn't have filled the bucket.But, let's get back to emptying the bucket and reinstalling it and the unit won't start.
Several things can cause the this. The first and most notable is the bucket is not installed properly. When that happens the bucket safety removal switch, does not make firm contact with the bucket when it's reinstalled. If the hose is still attached, temporarily remove it and reinstall the bucket so that it fits "squarely" from top to bottom into it's holder. Make sure that is makes firm contact with the bucket safety removal switch on the back wall of the bucket holder. When installed properly the bottom of the bucket should not tilt down at the bottom.
The second most notable thing, is that the humidity level in the room is the same as whet you have the unit set to extract. In this case, the unit won't turn ON, until the surrounding humidity level rises. To test this, lower the humidity extraction level to 32%. If the bucket is installed properly and the Air Intake Filter is clean, the unit should start.
I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.
yes cycles should be longer either that or the unit is keeping close to desired humidity. Also the unit is under sized 30 pint is for 400sqft. or 20 by 20 room. humidity should be 30/50 percent check your level desired room temp is 70 degrees but its a basemnt 60 works.
You need to determine what's "running". Here's why: There are three things that must be working to extract water. The
'coil' (a finned metal part that needs air to flow across its surface) may be filled
with dust and obstructions, so no air can move...then no water. There is a
blower motor that must move the air. If it is seized up and not blowing
air...very little or no water. The compressor creates condensation from
air moving across the coil (like the moisture than forms on an ice filled
glass on a humid day) to extract the water from the air. If it's not
working then no water. So, if there is air blowing out of the dehumidifier the blower is working. If the air is room temp the compressor is not
working. If it's real hot air, and the humidifier keeps cycling on and
off quickly, the coil is dirty. Those are the 3 things that need to be
the purpose of the valve is to de-ice the evaporator and the valve is turned on by a timer usually. in normal operation, the evaporator builds up with ice (that is how water is extracted). when the valve operates, to put it simply, the hot gas is routed to the evaporator and hence melts the ice off
You have a refrigerant leakeage in the unit, that's why it's frozen up. If you want to do it yourself, here's what to do:
1. Disconnect power from unit.
2. Remove covers from dehumidifier and locate coils and evaporator units inside.
3. Check for greasy or sticky signs on joints and weldings.
4. Once locate it, re-solder (in case of leakage on weldings) or adjust very tightly the joints.
5. Reassemble and test.
