Question about Kenmore 54501 Dehumidifier
Possibly., the unit turning ON vibrates the bucket in such a way, that it loses contact with the safety switch and the unit shuts OFF. If the dehumidifier is not sitting level, it would cause the bucket to shake more than usual. In addition, if you haven't cleaned the filter recently, I would suggest that you do that. A dirty or clogged filter causes the unit to struggle and if it is to much to handle, it will cause it to shut OFF. Before you attempt remove the filter, turn OFF the Master ON/OFF Switch and Unplug the unit. Be sure you do it in the order I listed.
Hope this helps you further to troubleshoot and solve the problem.
