Question about Ebac HD880 Dehumidifier

1 Answer

Should I buy a new Ebac dehumidifier?

I have an HD980 which has worked fine for years. The only problem with it
was that the plastic door and door catch were so flimsy that they broke after a few removals and replacements of the tank. My solution was to tape the door permanently shut by winding a belt of household tape around the midriff of the machine and lead the water out through a plastic tube attached to the pip in the bottom of the tank. It was, of course, essential to check that the microswitches were activated by making the door really tightly closed.
My question is... has the door arrangement been improved in the new models? Not everyone wants to use a tube.

Unfortunately, Ebac has discontinued their HD line at the moment. The only other bucket style dehumidifier that they currently manufacuter is the CD35 dehumidifier.

I have an ebac homedry 870. works great ,has done for 10 plus years probably 15. Now it rattles, has got quite loud. You can get part of the same noise if you shake the unit side to side. i think...

I see by my computer this is a UK unit made for UK climates.
I also found various web sites you can access for help with your unit. Please explore these.
God bless your efforts.

My 880 home dry is around 15 years old now and when on makes a loud squeaking noise, what is it and is it worth repairing , other wise works fine .regards

sounds like the fan - its worth taking apart and seeing which bit squeeks, if its the bearing try a small amount of WD40 first. try not to get any on the motor of electrics. You can by an electrolube spray if is is the Fan... Well worth taking apart, the latest EBAC models are of very poor quality.
I also had a Homedry for 15 years and the cabinets started to root first... I've had three 2560e's since all replaced under warranty - pcb failures...
