No matter what humidity setting humidifier is on it no lomger collects any water model# maytag m7dh6582a*a
Most likely the compressor is not running. This unit has been in service for some time as most of the replacement parts have been discontinued. There are some common parts that are generic that can be found like the capacitor and PTC relay & overload but this would require someone troubleshooting the problem of the compressor not running and determining which part has failed. Then to get COMMON parts it would be a matter walking into an apliance parts supply with part in hand to find them. If the controller has failed.. it is not available. If the fan motor has failed it is not available. The usual failures are as stated above, capacitor, PTC relay & thermal overload. Some one will have to remove the cover of the compressor terminals measure input power, inspect the PTC relay, thermal overload, wiring, terminals on the compressor, then measure the compressor windings for resistance and grounds to the case of the compressor.
If one of the common parts that are generic has failed you can repair this unit. If the controller, compressor or fan has failed your looking at replacing the unit.
