compressor won't stay on

I have a dehumidifier that's less than 2 years old. Has been working fine up until a few days ago. The fan stays on ok. But when it tries to start the compressor, it struggles for a few seconds and then it clicks and the compressor doesn't come on. After a while, the process keeps repeating and the compressor doesn't come on.
Where do I begin looking for the problem?
