No, not really. As the unit has to be in a level position to operate properly and not overflow. If the unit is sitting on carpet, this will often times cause the vibration noise. I don't know why, but it does and it does with my 4 year old LG unit. I have noticed, that once the tank reaches the 1/2 full point, it will vibrate sometimes. I solved the problem by firmly smacking the left & right sides of cabinet at the same time, with my open hands. The vibration stops immediately and continues to run until it shuts off because, the humidity extraction level has been reached or the tank is Full & needs to be emptied.
It's a simple solution, but it works. I hope it works for you and thanks for choosing FixYa.
This may be caused by running the unit in continuous mode, rather than timed mode. The heat is generally is generated when the defrost mode cycles on, to defrost the cooling coils. This happens more frequently, if the air space around the unit is obstructed or it's operating in a temperature range of 40 to 60 F. Cleaning the air intake filter at least once a week, can help solve this problem, too.
Maintain a minimum of 12" free air space around all sides of the dehumidifier. Use a timed mode rather than a continuous mode. Make sure the room is within the proper operating temperature range and clean the air intake filter weekly.
Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.
is there an internal storage tank for that unit. It is probably the drain tube for condensate. Put it into a bucket, run it, and see it water accumulates. If so, that's what it is, and must be put into a bucket, that then must be emptied frequently.
if your dehumidifier is under warranty, call 1-866-629-8241. they are no longer honoring the warranties, because fedders, the company that made the dehumidifiers went bankrupt. but they will prorate your warranty and send you a check. we had two months to go on our warranty and they gave us $14 and change back.
