Question about Kenmore 5230 Dehumidifier
The fan and compressor turn on but the compressor quickly shuts off and begins to rattle the entire unit. The fan remains running for a short while and then that too shuts off. I have checked to see if anything is rubbing against the fan housing but that isn't happening. While the compressor is running water does form on the fins but the unit quickly shuts down.
Sounds like bad relay on compressor or bad compressor. There is only so far you can go yourself without knowledge in electrical and AC units. Suggest you call a service tech or if you can take it to service cemter near you. Russ

Hi lynn crisp, thanks for your post!
From my understanding you are having a challenging time with your Frigidaire dehumidifier shutting too quickly. It sounds like a possible problem with your sensor or control panel. Are you currently under warranty? I would contact your manufacturer for assistance to a proper resolution. -Matt
