Dehumidifier Freezing

I have a Goldstar GHD30 (LG Branded) dehumidifier that runs constantly and the coil freezes. I'll let the unit sit for a day to thaw and within an hour of restarting, the coil starts to freeze again.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Have you cleaned the coils? If you have it is time to get a bigger and better unit!

The coils are clean. This unit worked perfectly last year so I know something must be wrong.

off the shelf units last an average of 5 years. Only thing that would cause it to freeze is dirty coil, fan not working or low on refrigerant.
