    I have had mine for 2 years. I do not think it is the same model. I keep it clean I noticed it running hot so I checked everything and found that the compressor is running to cold there is ice build up on the front and again it is clean.

Hi,
The compressor is not starting, either the start components (relay and capacitor) have failed or the compressor is no good.

Top of dehumidifier is very hot to the touch, filter is clean don't know what to do, afraid to put it on in case of fire.


Are you running it in high ambient temperatures?
Can you see any condensate(water) on the coil?
It may be that it is running above it's temperature range. A dehumidifier has two coils(radiators if you like). One gets cold, the other gets hot. The first one renoves the moisture from the air, this is the evaporator and is cold. The heat taken from the air is absorbed into the refrigerant and is given back to the air when it passes through th other coil, the condensor which is hot. The refrigeration circuit itself produces heat. This heat plus the heat absorbed from the air has to be got rid of. If the ambient temperature is high, the condensor will have trouble getting rid of the heat from the circuit. This can cause the case to feel hot to the touch. Assuming you don't have a refrigeration leak, it may not be worth running the unit if it is not removing moisture from the air. Is any water being dropped into the bucket? If it isn't, all you are doing is wasting electricity.
