Question about Crosley 40-pint Dehumidifier
I just purchased the 70 pint Crosley dehumidifier, model number cdf700w1...I let it acclimate to room temperature for four hours. When I turned it on the fan sounded nice and quiet....however once the compressor kicked on it made and continues to make a high-pitched whining noise. This does not sound like a good thing. I left a message for the appliance vendor, but have not heard back yet. Is this common for this type of dehumidifier? My GE never made this noise, although it stopped working after one season. The Crosley is collecting water but I cannot stand the high-pitched whine. I am afraid to leave it unattended....any advice?

There are many reasons for a dehumidifier to not work or collect water.
Here is a tip that I wrote to help people to figure out what is going wrong with their dehumidifier.
Dehumidifier is running but no water is in bucket

SOURCE: I have a Crosley Model
It may very well be that you have the humidity extraction level set to high. Lower it to 32-35%. If you have a manual unit, set the control to Maximum. Since it's a basement application, raising the unit up off the floor on to a sturdy table or counter top that can handle the weight of the unit, plus a full bucket of water, may also solve the problem. As, the air temp at floor level is colder than at chest or shoulder level. Dehumidifiers do not work well at temperatures between 40 - 60 degrees F. Unless you have what's called a Low Temp Model. They are specifically designed for basement applications.
Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem
