Worked for only a few months, warranty worthless Posted by: from: on We keep the dehumidifier in our musty basement/garage, and keep it on all the time set to about 65% humidity. This one worked great for the first few months. Just before winter, we noticed that it wasn't collecting any water, so we turned it off, thinking it was too cold to collect water. Now, it's damp again with high temps, and there is not one drop of water being collected. It hasn't even been one year, and this thing isn't working! Calling the warranty number gets you NO WHERE. You cannot reach a human, and ultimately leaves us with an email address. Well, it's been several days since we sent the email, and have gotten no response. I've read other reviews that lead me to believe that Frigidaire will not be able to service this problem, as it is probably part of the sealed compressor, which is unrepairable and not covered under the warranty. I've read that they offer a 50% discount off a new model. Really? I will. NEVER buy anything from this company again. Now I am going to best buy with this issue, since they sold me a product that broke before the one year mark.

3rd One Returned Posted by: from: on This is my third Frigidaire dehumidifier. First one lasted just under a year. The compressor was shot. Returned it under warranty. Second one lasted a little over a year. Compressor was shot. Luckily I bought the extended warranty. Just returned my THIRD one for the same issue. This one lasted a whole 2 months. It's not even running all the time. Just normal basement operation. It seems these things just aren't made well any more. Not much choice than to keep buying and returning when they fail I guess. Advice: ONLY buy with an extended warranty!

Nice machine Posted by: from: on Only had 3 days. So far, so good. Performs as l had hoped. Definitely takes moisture out of area used in, but is pretty loud as l had expected. Waiting and worrying about electricity consumption, although l know removing this moisture does come at a cost. I,m just wondering though why specs for all dehumidifiers list water removed per day is 1\2 amount of what is advertised on box. 70 pint deh removes only 35 pints per day. Like, what's up with that?

Works well and is quiet Posted by: from: Yardley, PA on My old unit was so loud, I heard it blaring throughout the entire house when it started up. I set this one up, and it immediately looked a million better. I attached a short garden hose and drip it directly into my sump pit. Punched a few buttons and it started to run. I noticed it ran long, almost never stopping. Was not sure what the numbers were indicating. Read the brief manual, all questions are answered therein. So I changed to the (louder, but still not nearly as loud as the old clunker I used to have) higher fan level, and bumped up the humidity target to 60, and now it runs less frequently. Higher fan speed is, of course, more effective, therefore it dries out quicker. When I'm spending time in the basement, I simply turn it to the lower speed, or temporarily turn it off, so it won't bother me. The air there is 20 times better than what is was. No more musty basement!

Much quieter Posted by: from: Saint Johns, Mi. on Seems to do what a dehumidifier should, but much more quietly than my previous units.

RETURNED AFTER 10 DAYS Posted by: from: Indiana on I bought this model based on its ratings and customer reviews. I returned it because the humidistat on the unit was off by 10-15 points according to the new humidity monitor that I purchased and the older ones I already had. It ran constantly and never seemed to reach the modest humidity goal of 50%. I have an 800 sq ft basement area with some cobblestone walls (house built in 1875). It is very important that I am able to count on my humidifier operating properly and accurately. Disappointing as I found the unit to be quieter than most and easy to attach a hose for continuous drainage. I also found Frigidaire customer service to be nonexistant. Tried calling two numbers and could not reach a live person. Emailed as their website suggested (also said I should expect a response in 48 hrs) and it took 12 days to receive a reply. Thank goodness I bought this at Best Buy and there were no hassles with the return (must be done within 15 days of purchase/pickup). The employee serving the return desk said that he had other models returned with the same complaints.

Beats the Sears brand, so far. Posted by: from: on This 70 pint dehumidifer was for a basement with a little over 1000 sq feet. The ease of set up to our furnaces condensate pump via a simple garden house was fantastic. The unti was up and running in about 10 minutes from the box. Within 24 hours the basement felt less damp. Follow the directions and run it at "CO" for the first 24-48 hours to bring your space to where it should be humidity wise then set your desired percentages.

Works great easy set up. Posted by: from: North Carolina on Purchased the Frigidaire FAD704DWD about a month ago. Read a lot of reviews first and decided on the Frigidaire. The set up on this model was very easy, all I had to do was hook a hose to the hose connector on the back of the unit. ( This was a big improvement from earlier models). I use a pvc drain line to a floor drain. The unit is used in my basement. It is set from the factory on 'CO' for continuous, let it run three days on this setting to get a handle on the humidity, then set it on 60%. The unit has worked great. It will completely shut down once it reaches the desired setting, this is one thing that I was not sure prior to my purchase. Doing a great job in my basement, we have had record rain falls in North Carolina this year. Basement is over 1500 sq. feet. The fan does make some noise, but less than my old unit.
