I have an LG dehumidifier that has stopped working. No power

This answer was rated:

I have an LG dehumidifier that has stopped working. No power to the display or anything just dead. The power cord little green light is on as I know I'm getting power to the unit because I am reading 120 volts going in and coming out of the fuse on the circuit board. When I shut the dehumidifier off the compressor was on so I fear something might have blown. I was wondering if the capacitor might have gone bad. I am a mechanic so I would like to fix this myself. I would like help to find what part to replace. The model number is XXXXX My name is XXXXX XXXXX thank you for the help. By the way I have all the covers off and have a good view of everything.
