Hi,
You can replace that fan but often the cost of the fan and the time invloved to do it are worth more then a new unit...dehumidifiers are not that costly new...
Also the problem could be the circuit board, this also os a costly repair...

The unit turns on compressor and the fan after awhile the fan turns off and compressor still on.


Sounds like it is a bad fan or bearings. Try shutting off the unit as soon as the fan shuts off and see if the fan turns freely. If not, the fan bearings need lubrication or replacement. If they are not serviceable, you will need to replace the entire fan.

Why does my brand new wall AC unit turn on but the fan does not work?


Good Afternoon Michael,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FRA14EHT2, and the fan not turning on, even though the compressor turns on. Being that this is an air conditioning, I suggest either calling your local authorized technician or possibly the manufacturer. One of which will be able to assist and direct you in the right direction of having your air conditioner working. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I have an Haier HD656E dehumidifier. The past couple of days it has been on, but only the fan is running. I hear the noise as if the evaporation part wants to turn on, but is not. I have the temp. set...


Hi,

With the unit unplugged, open the cover and check the alignment of the fan. If the fan is stuck or rubbing against the fan cowling, adjust the fan motor's mounting hardware so that the fan turns freely.

Take care.

My Haier dehumidifier is really noisy. If we turn it off and restart it, it will run quietly for maybe 4 minutes and then start getting really noisy again. Any ideas what is causing it and what I can do...

Fan quitting on unit


Maybe the room is dry enough so the humidity sensor is turning it off?

If not, maybe the thermisensor(fuse) on the fan motor is failing?

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.

Fan does not come on


I've seen abunch of these. The fan motor has a fuse wound into the windings. It cannot be replaced you need a new fan motor. The motors seem to run hot normally, leading to a short lifespan.
 I suggest buying a better brand unit.
