Crosley dehumdifier high-pitched whinig

I just purchased a Crosley 70 Pint dehumidifier, model cdf700w1. I got it home, let it acclimate to room temperature for about 4 hours....turned it on and was pleased that the fan was not loud. However, when the compressor kicked on it makes a high-pitched whining sound. It's really bothering my ears and I called and left a message at the appliance center where I purchased it. It is collecting water, but I am very concerned because my other (GE) dehumidifier did not make any high-pitched sounds. Is this a bum unit?

Need float switch that cuts off dehumidifer when bucket gets full

Without a Model Number or Part Number it's hard to help you. But here are three links, where you can find the float switch, if it's still available. You'll definitely need the Model Number to find anything.

Hope this helepd you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Humidifier Fan Doesn't Stop

RH at 70 % seems to me a little excessive you really should be working somewhere around 50 to 56% the fan has to move Air through the system.
I would like to know your room Air temp what is the Air temp comming off the system. what are your parameters.

Dehumidifier automatic on and off function not working

Unless you live in a dry environment or place the unit in a hermetically sealed room, it probably will not turn off. As the air dries within the room, more moisture comes in with the air. As long as the air outside of the room is more humid than the room this will be true.

Check the connection where you attached the hose. It may be plugged or covered by a plastic film from when it was molded.
