LG LHD65EL Dehumdifier Fan Noise

I took the dehumidifier apart and found the source of the noise is the fan itself, not the compressor. When running the fan rattles so badly, it sounds like it might throw the unit apart (even though I know it won't). The fan is mounted on a screw that just turns freely so that I can't tighten the fan. I'm not sure I want to tighten it anyway. I've cleaned the fan blade, and there's nothing obvious that looks like it would unbalance the fan. Ideas?

It sounds like the fan has etached from its hub. This usually is not repairable if that's the case. Replace the fan.

The fan in the dehumidifier makes an awful lot of noise.


It may not be the fan, as much as it the compressor vibrating. This occurs if the unit is not sitting on level flooring or on a carpet. Why I carpet? I do not know, but my LG unit does the same thing. I have found that smacking the sides of the cabinet simultaneously with my open hands, stops the vibration and the noise.

if however, it is the fan making the noise, it too can be affected by an UN-level surface. In addition, the fan shaft made need lubricating. WD40 works well for this or light machine oil (like sewing machine oil) will work too.

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

When running load noise coming from black cylinder


That part you identified is the compressor of the dehumidifier. Compressor is probably bad or going bad. When compressor go bad the valves start making noise and they lose alot of there efficiency.

I HAVE 4 EA NEW LHD659EBK DEHUMIDIFIER and they make lots of noise and vibrate a bit, this is normal in these Dehumidifiers ..


These can be noisy.
Does the noise only happen when the compressor runs? These compressors float on rubber bushings to isolate the vibrations and maybe one of the three nuts on the mounting studs may be loose.
The fan bearings can also wear out.

DH30 Dehumidifier Compressor Does not Operate


I just picked one up at a tag sale, seller said it worked sometimes. Seems to have the same problem as yours. I took the time to tweak all of the connections and then re-soldered the control board with no luck. I finally disconnected the humidity control and it worked fine. By disconnecting the humidity control the unit defaults to it's highest setting and you have to unplug the unit to turn it off. Conclusion so far is that the humidity control rheostat is bad.
Note: Now while running the fan runs continuously and the compressor cycles on and off every 10 to 15 minutes. This may to be normal since the unit appears to be doing its job and I'm not sure how it is supposed to run since a purchased it broken.
