  • Urgent--Stand dryer death! Whatever happened to that cool orange Edemco Stand Dryer??

    My favorite 25+ year old Speedy dryer got knocked over this evening by an ever-so-sorry family member. It fell on it's motor and is declared DEAD! I knew this day would eventually come and I had casually looked at a really cool looking orange stand dryer at the Edemco booth at Groom Expo in Hershey. I can't find it on their website and was wondering if anyone had any info about this dryer, or if you have a finish dryer that you LOVE and would recommend.

    it's like losing a family member...

    25 years is a long relationship... even if it's with a dryer. but change can be good. Just remember that no matter what dryer you choose.... they don't make them like they used to...

        My Oster stand dryer was purchased in 1987.......and still working beautifully. However since I've gone mobile, it now sits in my bathroom and drys my hair !!

          My condolences... It's hard to see a member of the family suffer. I'm with Peach, unless the case is cracked, just call speedy and get a new motor. These dryers are brutes and it takes more than a little fall on the floor to put them out of commission for long

            Took your advice and called Speedy. Since my old dryer has a sealed motor, it probably can't be fixed. Speedy is sending me out a new one in today's UPS shipment, so I should have it TOMORROW!! I'm really excited, but I think I'll still have my hubby take a look at the old one and see if it can be saved. Thanks all.
