Question about Kitchen Ranges
The sensor from the float in the tank is faulty (it constantly signal that the tank is full) - either try to fix it by checking and cleaning the contacts inside it or you will need a new tank

Hi and Welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. Check item 14 this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5202477&diagram_id=24095824#d24095824
Close up view:
You may have to remove the switch.. back off the rear nut so the plunger is extended closer to the tank when installed and then reinstall the front nut. If it is not adjustable as installed you may have to replace the switch.
The water tank may have indented the plastic where the plunger strikes the tank which will require you adjust the switch.
You can try to tape a piece of cardboard on the tank where the switch striker touches the tank for troubleshooting but I would NOT leave it in place as a permanent fix. (Adjust the switch)
I do not recommend water tank replacement for this problem. (Adjust the switch)
Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Usually, dehumidifier stops running when the water tank is full.
First, make sure the reservoir is empty. If you plug the unit in and see a green power light, but the unit won't run, make sure the reservoir is properly inserted.
Many dehumidifiers have switches or sensors to make sure that the reservoir is placed so that it won't leak. Look for these sensors and make sure the reservoir is engaging them.
If your dehumidifier has a float or switch to indicate a full reservoir, make sure this switch isn't being tripped accidentally.
