It sounds like the reservoir is tripping the switch, be sure it moves freely when the reservoir is installed.

Hi,
The fam motor bearings are dry and need oil..wd-40 with the long spray nozzle maybe the best way to get oil on the bearings... some motors are sealed and it is very dificult the get them quiet again...spray right where the shaft comes out of the motor and then lean the unit back so the oil runs into the motor and let it set for awhile..then try it...

There are 5 basic, yet solvable reason for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%. If you have a manually
controlled unit (No LED Screen) turn the humidity extraction knob to Maximum.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder
level
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

First check the water collection bucket, to make sure it's properly seated and making contact with the safety switch. Also check the humidity level you have the unit set on. It may be to high for the humidity level in your house. Reset the humidity level to either minimum or if you have an LED screen 45%. Remember, the lower the setting, the more humidity will be removed.

To do an in home test of the unit, move it to a bathroom. Turn the unit ON and set the humidity level to it's lowest level. Turn the shower ON hot enough to generate steam. Do not turn the bathroom's exhaust fan on. As you exit the bathroom, close the door. Wait 15 to 20 minutes and turn the shower OFF. Allow the dehumidifier to run for several more minutes, before checking the water collection bucket for water. If you find any water in the bucket, it's working as it should. If not, it's time to replace the unit. Under most circumstances, I would suggest possibly repairing it. But, Fedders is out of business and replacement/repair parts are a scarce as hen's teeth.

Hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
