It is more than likely the compressor is not running, only the fan.
It seams that the humidity sensor is flaky on these units. You can,
operate the unit, by opening up the dehumidifier and unplug the sensor from the main board. The unit will cycle on and off and remove the water from the air.....good luck

A dehumidifier is basically a cooler. The condenser coil on the outside should feel cold to the touch usually around 34 to 38 degrees, as air passes over the coils they collect the humidity in the air and it then drips down into a collector tray. If the coil does not feel cold it is ether a bad control switch not letting the cooler (compressor) turn on, low on freon, or burned out compressor

SOURCE: Not condensing
Check to see if coils are getting cold, (run for 10 min. then unplug, and check inside unit). If they are, check and clean filter and coils. If not, most likely no economical to fix. Check consumer reports before buying a new one. New standards came in to play this year. Changed quality on the units.
