stand alone dehumidifier keeps clicking on and off
I have a 15 year old dehumidifier that has seen alot of duty from June through September. In the past if the humidity or temp was too low I'd turn it on but I could hear that that it was just the fan. Now, even though temp is 74deg and humidity is 72% and basement feels a bit musty it goes on and keeps running but every ten seconds I can hear a click and the sound gets lower--and it's obvious the dehumidifier is not working. Then it goes on again for another ten seconds. Just time to get a new one?
