You can try cleaning the humidity sensor, which is on a circuit board
housed in a nylon clip attached to the cooling coils.
The sensor is in a plastic clip, which can be opened up and cleaned.
Some report success. Didn't work for me.
I ended up rewiring the unit so that a 5v control
line from the lower relay board goes through the SPDT bucket full switch,
turning on the control board when full (so it beeps), but otherwise
enabling the compressor and fan. The fan and compressor
are controlled by relays, which are driven by a ULN2003AN
relay driver. I fed the empty side of the full bucket switch back into
the relay driver to turn on the compress and the fan on high.
I plan to put a dehumidistat in series with this control line;
now it just runs till the bucket is full. A Broan DH100W dehumidistat
is 20 bucks. Could also put in a rotary switch to control the fan speed,
but for me high is enough.
I think this machine is made by Goldstar for Kenmore and Delonghi.
Stuff is just made to break and through away these days, which is a shame.
