Its the bucket switch on the unit thats bad,it controls the water level overflow so unit shuts off when bucket is full,its at the top rigt side of the bucket mounted to the float in the bucket and there is a replacement available part # AP3136674,on some units depending on the mounting hole size,you may need to use some old switch mounting parts on the new switch so it fits

    still,please try bypassing the bucket switch as this seems to be a large percentage of these units shut down problems,this switch is in series with the whole unit on the power supply side cord and carries all current the unit requires to operate, even the fan

    if this doesn't help you,there also is a small black round disc mounted on the circuit board which is a one time fuse,you can remove the wire harness from the circuit board to do a positive fuse test,but still try the bucket switch first as its easier to get at

Never no water in dehumdidifer to empty

I'd suggest you (1) make sure dehumifier is plugged in, (2) the circuit it's connected to is live (breaker not tripped and fuse not blown - this is easily tested by plugging in an appliance (e.g., hair dryer) you know works). If the unit turns on, it is likely defective - unless there is a hose connected to the dehumidifier that reroutes the water removed from the air to a drain (is there moisture collecting somewhere within 6-10' of the unit?). If it doesn't turn on, and you've troubleshooted the above to ensure there is electricity to the receptacle, then it's either defective or the moisture setting for removal needs to be adjusted for the humidity in your basement. Perhaps it's dryer down there than you thought, or your hygrostat (? - whatever the doohickey is called that senses humidity level) is set at too high a level that it never turns on/trips in your area. Hope it helps.
