Compressor kicks out after 2 seconds. Took unit apart - checked some voltages - discovered compressor didn't die after 2 seconds while it was taken apart - but got real hot instead.
There is a high voltage on the cooling coils that shouldn't be there. When I put the back cover back on, it would ground out the voltage on the cooling coils and cause the compressor to kick out. I decided to leave the back cover off and it seemed that the compressor got super hot and the coils didn't cool. Advice?

unplug any Start Relays from the Compressor,

and check the resistance of the Compressor pins to it's case ...

There are 3 pins on the compressor - C(W), R(U), S(V).
I put the digital multimeter on the 200 ohm setting -
C-Case = 060
R-Case = 080
S-Case = 005

I don't have an ammeter to measure the amperage of the startup - but because the (cooling) coils are shorted to ground when the case is on, I'm guessing it was significant!

Thanks for the input- any thoughts on a new one? - these both run around $220:
General Electric 65-Pint Dehumifier ADEW65LN (Walmart)
Soleus Air DP1-70-03, 70 Pint Portable Energy Star (Amazon)

This is for the unfinished portion of an Ohio basement - we keep it running fairly constantly...

That's the one we have. Tastes great, less filling!

If the dehumidifier is less than 5 years old...

And the SEALED SYSTEM has failed...

You qualify for a new dehumidifier----free.

Simply call 1-800-243-0000

You'll need:

1) Bill of Sale

2) Model Number

3) Serial Number
