Question about Eva-Dry EVD1100 Reable Petite Dehumidifier Dehumidifier

Makes a loud noise

This little thing was working fine for several months. Now it makes a loud noise when I turn in on. Sounds like something is wrong with the fan. I have not taken it apart, but looking at it thru the reservoir area, it almost looks like the fan might be a 120 mm computer fan that is screwed to the cooling unit.

Re: makes a loud noise

Not sure which dehum yo have,but here I go! most fans are not part of the cooling system. first remove the housing where the fan is. turn the unit on and check to see if the fan is turning. if not then just wait till you hear the compressor kick in. if the compressor goes on then you do have a problem w/the fan motor and it will have to be replaced. worst comes to worst just bring it into Sears. they have techs which will let you know what the exact problem is and you can take it from there. make sure you give them the model # first,just to check if the have parts for your dehum.

It is making a lot of noise. Still seems to work.

I get this complaint a few times a month , what I usually find is that the circulation fan has a build up of fuzzy lint on the blades and it throws the fan out of balance (hence the noise) a soak in a warm water/soap solution usually takes care of it , disassembly is required for this , I usually charge two hours labor for this

Dehumidifier started making a loud noise. Is this something we can fix?

a change in tone of the noise from a working unit indicates to me that a bit of dust/dirt has built up on the internal fans blades and has caused a imbalance in the fan now , this usually requires a complete disassembly and cleaning out to remedy

Please HELP Single MOM fix A/C

It could be several things, Not like changing a light bulb. If the fan's shot the unit will try to cycle, will stop, will click, will sit a little and everything starts over again...That's just one item...the easy one..
Because of it's age and other problems, I strongly suggest Goodwill, St. Vincent's. Home Depot right now, has a 5kw (small room 10x15 max.) for a hundred bucks.
The old unit is bagged...time to go!

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...

MY unit has become increasing noisy and the fan is the mane cause. The fan is now making different noises at differing levels high and low of loudness, and it often quits running all togetger. It is also...

It sounds like the bearings in the motor are worn out, especially as you said it quits running at times. You should be safe in just replacing the fan motor, but check the fan blade to make sure it isn't out of balance for any reason(dirty, missing a balance weight, or bent). Hope I was of assistence!

Unbearable noise

Mine does the same thing, for the third time. Seems the plastic fan on mine, lasts a little over a year. Not hard to change, just a bad design on the part. I'm ordering an extra tis time, to save on freight.

I have the same problem. I believe it is because it has a refrigerent leak. When there is little refrigerent, the begining of the coil will freeze up. I would really suggest calling the manufacturer. It is defintely something to do with this specific model
