As long as the unit is unplugged, I can't think of any reason why you can't.

Dehumidifier started making a loud noise. Is this something we can fix?


a change in tone of the noise from a working unit indicates to me that a bit of dust/dirt has built up on the internal fans blades and has caused a imbalance in the fan now , this usually requires a complete disassembly and cleaning out to remedy

I have a comfortaire bhd501-d that is very noisy. Any solutions? I checked the screws on compressor and they are tight.


Pull the plug on the unit and strike it moderately with your hand listening for any vibrations. Try to pinpoint the source of that vibration and correct it. You should also place the unit on solid ground to eliminate the possibility of the noise being amplified by the surface it is sitting on. "Very noisy" is very subjective. Best I can do for now. Please post your findings

The fan in the dehumidifier makes an awful lot of noise.


It may not be the fan, as much as it the compressor vibrating. This occurs if the unit is not sitting on level flooring or on a carpet. Why I carpet? I do not know, but my LG unit does the same thing. I have found that smacking the sides of the cabinet simultaneously with my open hands, stops the vibration and the noise.

if however, it is the fan making the noise, it too can be affected by an UN-level surface. In addition, the fan shaft made need lubricating. WD40 works well for this or light machine oil (like sewing machine oil) will work too.

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

It is loud vibrating when comp. runs if I tip the unit up 3or4 inches it stops vibating is this ok too run this way?


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.

Dehumidifier works fine but every now and then the fan is very noisy, as if it is loose or hitting something. Is there a way of checking to see what is happening?


Hello,

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.

Good luck.

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...

The unit vibrates and has a pulsing sound. I have


These things tend to make a bit of noise, some more than others. You will not be able to do much about the internal produced noise but you can do a lot with the resulting vibration noise.
While the unit is running, take a few minutes and actually touch the unit ALL OVER, you are listing for any vibration noise to cease or be less so where you are touching. This includes the collection pan and the filter. Slightly Tilt the unit in all directions. Make sure that the door to the collection pan is closed properly. Take a few strips of the peel-off adhesive sided thin window/door insulation and apply to the bottom of the collector pan, if it sits ON the bottom of the unit. Place an inch or two thick blocks of foam rubber under each corner of the unit. Make sure the unit is level. Some where along here you will stifle some of, or maybe even most of the noise.
Good luck. :)

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.
