Question about Danby DDR401 Dehumidifier
Hi. If the compressor is working properly you should be able to feel a throbbing from the machine, and if you remove the inlet filter there should be condensation or ice on the cold pipes.
If it is throbbing but not producing cold pipes, then the refrigerant may have been lost through a leak. Not a DIY job I'm afraid.
If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills.
If they do not, please hold off on the rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

Hello friend, thanks for your post!
Based off what you have explained your Frigidaire dehumidifier's compressor cycling off and on could be resolved by a couple of troubleshooting steps. Check the filter to make sure it is not dirty, if the filter is it could cause your dehumidifier to work improperly. Verify nothing is obstructing your appliance from proper intake of air. If you go through those steps and your appliance is still not functioning properly you might want to reach out directly to the manufacturer to determine the warranty coverage on your dehumidifier and the procedures to any potential remedy. I hope this helps to some degree. -Matt
