I recently bought a 45 pint Fedders dehumidifier, with a digital
humidity controls and display.
It works very efficiently at removing moisture, or so it seems,
however after several days, it developed the kind of vibration
rattling that I've always disliked. Put your hand on the machine and
the noise will go away. Seems like poor cabinet design with some
panels vibrating against each other. Seen the same condition in my
father's sears model, years ago.
I'd like to take the DH apparat and glue in some cork or padding,
where possible, to dampen the amount of noise it emits.
Has anyone tried this with any success? What off-the-shelf materials
for doing this can I find in Home Depot and Pep Boys?
I've seen sound dampening pads in JC Whitney, but I would prefer to
find something available.
