If it is an older unit, it may be low on Freon (they _do_ use freon). There is no way to refill a closed system. The only other possibility is a bad pressure switch, and again, it involves the type of appliance that nobody supplies parts for (and are usually not user serviceable anyway).

tank may be full. Your dehumidifier has a safety device that turns off
the dehumidifier when the water tank is full. Usually the tank itself

Take out the bucket and locate the bucket full switch inside the cabinet. Depress the switch and see if it comes on. If so, you may have to add a shim to the bucket or strap it in with a bungie cord as the bucket is jiggling and makes the unit think that it has been removed.
It can be recharged but you would first have to locate and fix the leak and then refill. Then add a schraeder valve and refill at the port till suction line is cold to touch and starts to sweat. That's it!
