I have a SoleusAir dehumidifier, model # GL-DEH-70EIP-6, date code 1212, which I bought from Home Depot in 2013. The pump option no longer works and I run the unit with the pump turned off, but twice I have caught the pump running continuously even when the control panel shows it as off, and even turning the entire dehumidifier off does not cause the pump to stop running. I have to unplug the unit, and when I do, the prongs of the plug are extremely hot, too hot to touch.

Before I happened to see what was going on, I noticed many times that the outlet strip it was plugged into had had its internal breaker tripped. Now I know why. This is a fire hazard.
