Question about Kenmore 54701 Dehumidifier
Running two dehumidifiers in the basement. One ice's up, the other does not. is the one that ice's up toast?
Depending on the location of the icing up unit, it may be in an area of your basement that's a bit too cool. These units are notorious for icing up under such conditions.
First, "defrost" the iced up unit completely using a hair dryer. Then swap its location with the other unit which is functioning normally. If that resolves the problem, then it was caused by the above "too cool" scenario.
If not, then it's likely that the thermal control which periodically heats up the coils in order to melt off the accumulated frost/ice and drain it has failed. Repair could be costly, and you're probably better off replacing the unit with a new one - - which you can find for less than $200.

The one that is iced up probably developed a freon leak and yes it will cosy more to fix it then to repair it...
