There are 5 basic, yet solvable reason for what you described. Please pay particular attention to number 1.
1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.
2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.
3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.
4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.
5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air
temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the
compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are
5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it
Hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem.

try plugging it into a known live outlet. if this still doesn't work, you need to get inside it. find the enthalpy control - humidity control and see if it turns. a contact inside may stay open preventing the fan and compressor from turning on. check your on-off switch if there is one. to remove the case look in back for hex head screws or on the bottom of the unit

A humidistat from a different brand will work, provided it is mounted well & hooked up properly. Make sure the replacement is designed to switch the compressor directly.

the purpose of an ac unit is to remove water from the atmosphere so water will be collected and needs to be drained
In effect that removal of the water from the atmosphere is what makes you feel cool as you are allowing the skin to perspire more easily
