Those units are essentially air conditioners and they can use a lot of electric current when they start. Make sure it is on its own circuit and the circuit has the correct breaker on it for the load.

* Check by setting to "Driest" or max setting. It should stay on longer.. If not then there may be a problem with the air sensor. Call for service.
* If the compressor keeps turning on and off every 2 mins then it may be "short cycling". Call for service.
* Be sure to check the tub and filter (make sure they are seated properly.)

* The humidifier will only run if the "Humidity" (water or moisture in the air) is higher than the current setting on the humidifier. If it's set to maximum dry setting then expect it to run almost 100% of the time. If it is set to a "wet" setting then expect it run only for short periods.
* Colder room temperatures will reduce the frequency of cycles as cold air will hold less moisture than warm air.
* You may note that running a AC unit in the same room as the dehumidifier will give you mixed results as both units will "fight" or work against each other. Humidifier will heat the air as it exits while the AC will cool the air. Best to not run the AC while the dehumidifier is in operation.
* Note that AC do "dehumidify" the air as it passes through. But not as effective as a dedicated dehumidifier.
* Be sure to check the tub and filter (make sure they are seated properly.)
* Contact Frigidaire or your local Appliance store for service.

* Most dehumidifier components are similar to a standard small refrigerator. Except for a large fan (with corresponding fan noise). It should sound the same but running more often than a refrigerator.
* A dehumidifier is mainly used to remove or control humidity in a specific area. The most common use is to dry carpets or a damp basement.
* Though high ambient humidity (as in Hawaii). Expect the unit to run all the time as moist air seeps into the area.
* Typical noise from older units (but still working); https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwsqgM3KI28
