Question about Kenmore 54701 Dehumidifier
Unit seems to be running fine and then sounds like it is running hard and no air is being blown out of the back of the unit. We turn the unit off and then on again and it runs okay for a while and then the same problem happens. we have also cleaned the filter.
I have this problem, although I took it apart and have proper voltage from the board, but the fan still does not come on. When trying to check the motor itself, one of the screws was frozen on and I stripped it, I cannot takeit apart further unless I drill it out, which could damage the motor. I am just going to order new fan motor. I found one at the following URL (no I do not work for them). http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/retrievePartActionHome!search.action;jsessionid=F6wFpwSaiWrNMYcOENWLGA**.shcapp3106?productGroup=N%2FA&partNumber=4681A20040K&pop=flush

Evaporator fan is not turning on - a problem with almost all dehumidifiers... probably on this unit (being so new) it's the control circuitry (in the circuit board) which switches the fan on...
I have the same unit with the same problem)
