The unit sounds OK and works it just started to get very hot to the touch on the outer shell. I have looked inside and everything looks OK.

I do not see a brand or model number, however if it did not used to get hot and is doing so now, I would be concerned...See if some coils are clogged like the condensor coil, might need cleaning.  these are just like an A/C or Ref. , make sure the fans are running and no coils are clogged with dirt.

I had it apart and cleaned everything.(was not that dirty) The fan looked like is was running with no obstructions. It is a GE brand, 40 pint. Unit is about 3 years old.

Is it still removing moisture from the room??  Is the collection pan still filling with water??   If not see what the warranty is on this unit as something is not right with this sealed system, seems like to me.

Yes it is still collecting moisture from the room in the pan. I will check the warranty book. Thanks

Last year I had a GE dehumidifier that started icing up.  The sealed refrigeration unit was warrantied for 5 years.  GE replaced it and I had owned it 4 yrs, 11mos.  No hassle at all.  I was impressed with their service.

The unit is in my basement. So it is probably in the 70's down there.
