I have a GE 40-pint dehumidifier that is about 5-6 years old. The coils keep icing up. The basement is not cool at all. No obstruction issues. I took it apart and cleaned the filter this afternoon. I plugged it back up, and within 2 hours, it iced up (this picture was taken 2 hours after the filter was cleaned). Any ideas of what's going on with it?

that unit is low on freon. You'll be buying a new dehumidifier soon

Is the temperature around 65F around the dehumidifier? When I ran a dehumidifier, I put it up on a table, a couple of feet higher than the floor to increase the ambient temperature.
