This is in reference to a VERY old dehumidifier I have++
Its old enuf that's is actually RCA Whirlpool brand! it's gotta be every bit of 40 years old, probably 45. Anyway, I had to take it apart because the motor needed to be cleaned - it was badly gunked up with old oil and it wouldn't even run all the time. Long and short of it is that the motor took forever to get cleaned (DH kept forgetting about it) and now I need to put the whole she bang back together, but it's been so long I'm not sure how to reassemble it all!
It's model ADI 10A-2 cabinet serial number L1540, 4 amp, 115 volts 60 cycles Ref.F12 15 oz. (that's all from the identification plate) It's a rectangular metal unit,aqua colored (!) about 20.5 inches long, by 12 wide, by 16 high.
It won't be hard to put back together, (shoot, I got it apart without much trouble!) but I want to make sure I get everything where it needs to go, and don't bugger it up after I got it fixed! Is there an old repair manual out there somewhere that would show me how to do it? Or can someone walk me thru it?
Sorry to put this in the HVAC forum, but I wasn't sure where else to put it!
ANY advice you could offer would sure be welcome, and I thank you in advance!

I moved your thread here, I don't have the answer for you on this issue, but hopefully someone that has worked on these before can assist you in reassembling it.
