Question about Kenmore 54701 Dehumidifier
The key in the fan blade is soft plastic and it rounds out and the fan slips. also it can make a clicking sound or banging sound because the broken key causes the plastic sleve that slides over the motor shaft cracks.

Tips for a great answer:
So I just had this happen with my Frigidaire fad704dwd dehumidifier. I went to basement and heard it running and sounded off. The compressor was running fan was off which is bad and humidity said 30. I then pushed the off button and it stayed running. I was able to fix it. To make long story short it was a bad ground. I took the plastic back, sides, and front off. There was a green ground (main ground) and Green/yellow ground (fan ground) on the front coil with a bunch of rust. Removed the grounds connected them both together and cleaned the surface area and used a new stainless screw nut and screw to remount the wires to evaporator coil. Everything started working fine after that and I put it back together. Good Luck
