Question about LG LD65EL Dehumidifier
Recently the dehumidifier started a loud rumbling which also has a pulse rhythm to it. Changing the fan speed slows down the rumpling and the pulse rhythm. I took off the back of the unit and the fan spins freely with my finger and the fan moves maybe a centimeter or so back and forth with the shaft. I'm not sure if the fan shaft is jumping off the motor as I can't tell how the fan shaft is normally secured. Is the problem with the motor itself that I need to change the motor or is the fan shaft jumping off the motor? Any help would be great. Thanks
Sounds like the bearings have failed in the fan motor, & the rotor is rubbing on the stator. You mentioned end play in the shaft, check for cross play. There should be no perceptable cross play, any found indicates a need for a new motor.
