This is a good old Dehumidifier (21 years).  I thought it would be fun to repair instead of buy the junk they seem to make these days..
This fan motor seemed to fail.  Wasn't sure how to measure the resistance.. I got a number of 33...
I jumped everything and plugged it straight into the wall 110... It tried to spin and stopped...
Can't find this exact motor on line....
Can I replace with a similar type motor?
Anyone know what to replace with and where to purchase?
Thanks!

This motor:
115v 60hz I.oA 1450 RPM
Model No: IS-4420 SJU
Made by Sung Shin For Samsung

Hi,

It may not do us much good with the age of it, but would you happen to have the model number of the dehumidifier.
Hope you find our site helpful.

Hi, Yes, Samsung HD 2510a

Ok, I searched some of the online parts site and my two local parts dealers. Just as I thought, nothing found on that model number.

Maybe someone else will come up with something yet for a replacement with the numbers on the motor that you posted.

Another option would be if you can find someone local that repairs electric motors.

We have a guy in town here that repairs electrical motors. He has found a few odd replacement fan motors for me over the years.
Hope you find our site helpful.

This might work for you.  It has the proper voltage, amperage and rotation.  The rpm is a little higher but that shouldn't be a problem.  You'll have to check your measurements.  I don't see any specs for the for the mounting screws.  You might have to get them to remove it from the box and compare measurements to your motor.
