I believe it is a water tank code. Re-seat the tank, unplug wait 15 seconds and replug the power cord and see if this resolves the error.

Background relating to other possibilities.
When the water bucket reaches its capacity, the bucket switch opens to shut off the dehumidifier. If the bucket switch fails while it is open, it will prevent the dehumidifier from running. To determine if the bucket switch is defective, use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If the bucket switch does not have continuity, replace it.

It can be recharged but you would first have to locate and fix the leak and then refill. Then add a schraeder valve and refill at the port till suction line is cold to touch and starts to sweat. That's it!

A Dehumidifier will not cool your basement, just make it seem cooler at the same temp. Your dehumidifier may be undersized even for that purpose.

You need an AC outlet of a central AC in your basement, or a window unit if there are windows.

Warm air at discharge is normal.

A dehumidifier works like a low powered air conditioner where a fan draws air through a refrigeration unit which cools it and condenses water vapour and collects it in a container.

There is likely to be at least one air filter so some cleaning of the air takes place and such filter(s) will need attention periodically and in addition most manufacturers claim their products need servicing every 3 years.

Best results will be obtained when the room is closed and ventilation minimal and the capacity of the machine is more than adequate for the space where it is sited. A room with an open window or where the door is opened frequently is not really a suitable site for a dehumidifier.
It is important to choose a machine that is somewhat too large as efficiency will fall between service intervals.

It is quite possible a manual for a different but similar model by the same manufacturer will provide some useful information...

as there are two control boards in ac units ( split systems) and one in a window unit
it could be the inside board ( they do not suffer power surges to well or vermin infestations at all )
before you waste more money I suggest that you get a technician in to determine the fault and if parts are readily available.

if by turn off do you mean make the fan stop running ? if so sometime in the past few years someone decided to make machines like this run the fan all the time , but they do cycle the compressor motor to regulate the rooms humidity level
