LG LHD45ELY6 Dehumidifier won't turn on

I unplugged the dehumidifier for a few weeks since the kids kept turning it on and off as a game

The basement is now starting to smell mossy so I tried to plug it back in.

When I plug it into the wall receptacle I hear a beep from the back of the unit but the "On" button on the face of the unit doesn't work, no light, no sound, and no service

So I opened the front panel and there was a small 1"x1" electrical part that was intended to sit across 2 of the coils that seemed to have floated off onto the grill area. I put it back on to the coils, still nothing

Any ideas? Or since this was made in Jan '06 have I gotten my expected use out of it?

I suggest posting this in the dehumidifier section. Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers - DoItYourself.com Community Forums If you have checked the receptacle and found that it is working correctly, that would be the extent of the scope of this forum. There are people who might know more on the another forum.
