Sorry to hear that. Mass produced in China or Taiwan units rarely need to pass a quality control check or they get josled about in transit. Some units made by Honeywell with overseas assembly and parts also have this same problem. Cheap labor, cheap parts. It shouldn't be on the part of the user to track down faults, but if you want to try to find the squeaks and vibrations - go inside the unit and look for loose components. Duct tape in the right places does have a calming effect. A little silicone sealer does wonders too! Just be careful! I'll probably get a "thanks for trying" rating but this is just my opinion.

Vibration Noise Fix

Place the dehumidifier feet on foam or rubber vibration absorbing pads.

Touch all sides of the cabinet with the compressor running to see if your touch will dampen the noise. Once the noisy area is identified check that the fasteners are all in place and tight. Sometimes loostening and retightening a number of fasterners around the noisy area will cure this problem.

The heater operation is very noisy compared to new. Perhaps it's the fan? The heater is six years old and I'm concerned that it may cause a fire.

Its most likely the bearings in the fan motor failing causing vibration. One simple way would be too check and make sure all nuts and screws and bolts are tight around th e fan. If so is the fan blade dirty it doesnt take much dirt on a fan blade to get it out of balance and cause bearing failure.

My brand new Danby compact chest freezer is very noisy.What is the problem?

It could be an area where the tubing is vibrating against the cabinet or it's touching other tubing. While it's running you can run your hand along the tubing and when you get to the vibrating area it should stop. You can then slightly move the tubing away from where it's vibrating. Do not bend or kink the tubing.
It could also be a noisy compressor which would be under warranty.

Noisy water heater blower

It may just need a new pump coupling. Fairly inexpensive. I don't think you need to replace the whole burner.

Noisy pump

Obviously, this unit has a warranty. Are you packing the coffee too tightly? Run the unit without any coffee and see if the vibration is still there. If it is, get it fixed. If not, modify what you're doing.
