Question about Goldstar DH3010B Dehumidifier
My fan motor quit working so I replaced it, I installed the new motor and it seemed to run fine. About an hour later I checked on things and the whole dehumidifier was hot, the compressor felt very hot and the motor was also extremely hot. The motor was inoperable. After letting the machine cool for a day, I tried it again, the compressor kicked on but the fan motor failed to start. Any ideas?
I would look for another outlet for you to plug it in before you start anything elaborate. I assume you've done this already but spin the motor/blade. If it spins and there is little or no play in the shaft or blades causing a blade to bind up the mechanical part seems ok.
Now if you have a volt meter First check the motor for voltage, Then if you have voltage, compare it to the rating on the motor. Usually a voltage within 10% is ok. Next test resistance on the wires of the motor any resistance and the winding is probably okay. If not then the motor is out again. If you have lost voltage the control board is your next part to test. No voltage out to the motor there on the board plug and the board is the problem Power there woudl mean the motor has too high a resistance and Id check the resistance on a differant known good motor before replacing it. just so you know where you started.
