Vicks v4600 rattling noise at startup

So this humidifier is going on about 2 or 3 years old, and for a short time after startup, it makes a loud rattling noise for about 30-35 secconds, then works normaly. Now if I shut it off and turn it back on within 5 or so minutes, it does not make the noise. Here is what it sounds like, and the noise is not as loud as it sounds on camera. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emnY7VsQ...

Is this something easy to fix, from the sound of when it is running, it sounds like a dc fan, which should be replaceable.

Hi @connor2003 ,

You are probably correct. Although perhaps it needn't be replaced, as once you have opened up the humidifier, you may be able to ascertain what the problem is with the fan and fix it.

Here is a link to a video showing the fan inside a humidifier.

I realize that it is not your make or model, but the principle of operation seems to be the same.

If you need to replace the fan, parts for your appliance don't seem to be readily available online. Check if there is any information printed on the fan itself to see if you can locate one that way. i.e. make and model number of fan.

Hopefully this is of some help.
