IIt may very well be that the the air intake filter needs to be removed and cleaned. But, before doing this, turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Allow the unit to completely thaw, before removing the filter.Never operate the unit without the filter in place, As this could damage the unit.

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

Doesn't collect water, freezes on top


clean filter and then check the coil behind the filter to see if clean. Biggest things that freeze a unit are dirty filter or coil...or low on freon.

Humidifier is freezing up


I have the same dehumidifier and it does the same thing. but I was able to fix mine. It was not low on refridgerant. There is a temp. sensor clamped to the evaporater coil with a thin metal clip. The clip rusted out and the sensor fell out of position. I used a small stainless steel hose clamp and clamped the sensor back into position. It now works fine
