Question about Fedders R6DH45X Dehumidifier
The compressor runs continuously. (I removed the rear cover and the compressor runs and is very hot. The high side pressure line is slightly above ambient and the return line is not cool at all. There is no water condensing. I believe the unit has leaked the freon, as I bought it about three years ago . It was "Factory reconditioned" as a Fedders R6DH65X Dehumidifier - It appears very similar to the above cited model.
Is there a repair facility that can examine the refrigerent system, leak test the system, draw-down and recharge the system without costing me the same as a replacement dehumidifier?
Can I purchase a clamp on saddle valve (this used to be a common accessory to re-charge a factory sealed system) to do the recharge myself?

The fam motor bearings are dry and need oil..wd-40 with the long spray nozzle maybe the best way to get oil on the bearings... some motors are sealed and it is very dificult the get them quiet again...spray right where the shaft comes out of the motor and then lean the unit back so the oil runs into the motor and let it set for awhile..then try it...

The compressor relay can be accessed by removing the terminal cover box. The cover is held on by tension or with a retaining clip.
