Sounds like compressor is having trouble starting not much can be done with dehumidifiers because not many people work on them and they are very cheap to replace. Replace dehumidifier its not worth time and money cut you losses. If this helps please rate me and do a testimonial.

Noise


There are basically two moving parts, the fan and the compressor. It more then likely is the fan. Be sure the air path is clean and the fan blade does not hit anything. If it is the compressor I would suggest getting a new unit and using that one elsewhere for the short time it has left.

From Day 1 this dehumidifier, after running for a couple of minutes it gives off a very loud buzzing sound - not at all the typical motor sound. What is this and how do I fix it? Is it...

It is not dangerous, but it also is not working...the sound is the compressor trying to start and not getting started... so the machine is basically toast... would cost more to fix then it is worth...

Whirlpool dehumidifier makes a lot of noise when running and vibrating, dehumidifier is only 4 years old it does take out the water but very noisey any way to quiet it down?


Hi,
When the compressors start to go bad they often start to get very loud also...the cost to replace the compressor will probably be more then a new unit...

My fedder dehumidifier m7dh45b2a makes an annoying noise


Hi,
This noise is the vibration from the compressor...sometimes things can come loose and magnify the noise...check for loose parts and tighten as needed...
The compressor may also be going bad...

Humidifier not taking out water


I have the same problem. I have had the unit less than a month. Haier's policy is for me to pay $14.99 so they can send me another one. What a huge ripoff.

DEPENDING ON HOW FAR AND HOW LONG IT RAN TILTED, YOU MIGHT HAVE AN ISSUE WITH THE BUCKET SWITCH, LOCATED BEHIND THE BUCKET. SOMETIMES THERE IS A FLOAT INSIDE THE BUCKET THAT ACTIVATES THE SWITCH. IT MAY HAVE GOTTEN IN A BIND. TRY REMOVING THE BUCKET AND THEN REINSTALLING IT.
IF YOU HEAR A CLICKING NOISE ONCE EVERY FEW MINUTES, YOU MAY HAVE DAMAGED THE COMPRESSOR.
THE COMPRESSOR HAS LUBRICATING OIL IN THE BOTTOM OF IT AND REQUIRES IT BEING LEVEL TO PROPERLY PICK UP THE OIL. IF YOU TILT IT FAR ENOUGH, IT WON'T BE ABLE TO PICK UP THE OIL AND WILL DAMAGE THE INTERNAL MOVEMENT OF THE COMPRESSOR. REPLACE-MENT OF THE COMPRESSOR IS THE ONLY FIX AN TOO EXPENSIVE. BETTER TO JUNK IT AND START OVER.
