the lowest humidity setting and running it again. Next, test the
dehumidifier by placing it in a closed bathroom with a hot shower

Just purchased a Danby dehumidifier
Depending on which mode you have the unit set on, will determine if it shots OFF entirely or the fan continues to run. In the Constant or Continual mode, the compressor will turn OFF, once the humidity extraction level has been reached. But, the fan will continue to operate, in an effort to keep the air circulating, so that if the humidity level rises, the compressor will turn ON and start extracting again.
In Timed Mode (usually 2 hour or 4 hour) , when the compressor turns OFF the fan does too.

My dehumidifier ices up any suggestions thanks
Evan, a dirty or clogged air intake filter can cause it to freeze, as well as obstructed air flow around the unit. Maintain a minimum or 12" clear air space all around the dehumidifier. Also operating the unit in temperatures below 40 degree (F), will also cause the coils to freeze. In addition, low refrigerant in the compressor can cause the coils to freeze. In which case, recharging the gas should solve the problem, And finally, worse case scenario is that the defrost cycle sensor has failed and needs to be replaced.

My Danby dehumidifier leaks out
The drain tube or hole that drains into the bucket is probably clogged.
Turn the unit OFF and remove the bucket. Look in the cavity where the bucket was removed for a drain tube or drain hole. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (No wire coat hangers) , that's appropriately sized to fit in the hole. Carefully feed the ZIP Tie into the hole or tube and thread it as far as you can. At some point the drain will curve, but you have to carefully get past this point. Once the Zip Tie has reached as far as it can, slowly pull it out while rotating it. This will loosen the clog. Once you have it half way out, be prepared for water to follow. This method should solve the problem.
