No there is no way to lubricate the fans internally...they are made to run for a bit and then be thrown out...
I have found that by using a thin oil like WD-40 and then positioning the motor so that it runs back the shaft into the motor you can get it to work into the motor. I usually use WD-40 and then follow with a light motor or sewing machine oil. This seems to give a longer solution...

Goldstar dehumidifier dh404ey7 starts and runs about 5 mins., then trips house breaker in all different outlets.

any appliance that trips the fuse or breaker should not be tried to use by homeowner this is a fire hazzard as an electric short is a dangerous situation to have in any home , replace unit ! ck with mfg for recalls first and warrentys as well then contact your power company sometimes they give rebates for appliance upgrades but they require old ones back in order to pay u money on them

Bucket always says full but it's not. It runs for a few seconds, light comes on saying it's full then it switches off. It doesn't beep anymore when we turn it on. It is a GoldStar energy star,...

This generally occurs for two reasons.

1. The float valve in the top of the bucket (if yours is so equipped) is stuck in the 'UP' position. Jiggle the arm of the float valve to get it to return to the 'DOWN' position.

2. Reinstall the bucket "squarely" from top to bottom. into the holder. It must make firm contact with the Bucket Safety Removal Switch on the back wall of the bucket holder. The bucket should not tilt down at the bottom, if installed properly.

I hope this helped you to solve the problem and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Should the dehumidifier be blowing air out? It is

Unless the water level sensor is not working and you have the humidity setting low enough to call the fan should be running. If not then check water level sensor or float control to make sure they are working. Make sure the float is free to move if so equipped.If not clean and free up float.I would turn control dial up all the way and see if you can hear it trying to run. Turn it up and down several times.Also if you have a volt meter check to make sure you have incoming power to control and fan motor. Before I spent the money on a new motor I would bypass control and wire straight to motor.Try to isolate problem by process of elimination instead of just replacing parts till you find the right one. I have done this to many times and ended up spending more in parts and alot more in frustration,then the unit was worth to start with. Thank you.

Goldstar Dehumidifier model# DH305Y7

Unfortunately this is quite common for most DH's of this type. The only one that I have found that does not have a reputation for losing the fan or compressor after a year or two is the Whirlpool.

Dehumidifier Error?

Same problem with Goldstar model DH404EY7 -- stop code 01 on startup, bucket full light blinks (drains to floor).

Replaced the main controller board to fix it.

For my model dehumidifer the part # is 6871A20888A, and cost $77.44 (not counting shipping) from Appliance Factory Parts. The Appliance Factory Parts web site also provides parts breakdown (exploded parts diagram) diagrams and service manuals in PDF form.
