Keep the old, get a new, or dump the old

I have a Kenmore dehumidifier I use in my basement during summer months. I have records tht indicate it was repaired in 2000 by Sears. It was running, but no water was being removed from the air. I currently have the same proble. I suspect it is 6-10 years old. I also suspect that I would be advised that it is not worth it to repair a dehumidifier that old. (I think the rule for most appliance is to replace after 2 years.) Okay, so guessing that you are telling me to just buy a new one, what do I do with the old one? Can someone refurbish it and sell it? I hate how we have come to dispose of so many things that might be useful to someone else.

You could get it repaired, if you know what is wrong, but it may cost just as much as a new unit would cost or more..

i'd buy a new one.. check with your county waste.. our will take it off our hand, and recycle the parts.
