    On many units, just not Frigidaire, I read that Fan's rarely shut off, when the condenser does. Can the fan shut down simultaneously?   (5 Answers)

    Seems like the fan should shut down when the condenser does to save energy. Is there a way to have the fan shut down also?

      Answer

      Greg, thank you for your inquiry! Our new dehumidifiers are designed to run at a consistent speed for a longer period of time using less energy. Appliances use more energy when they constantly turn off and on. Our dehumidifiers are designed to allow the fan components inside to run after the compressor turns off. This allows the internal components to cool and the machine to rest even though you may still hear something running. We do hope this information is helpful. If you have any additional questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us directly or by resubmitting a question on this Q&A website. -Kind Regards-

        Hello, Great inquiry! The dehumidifier automatically shuts off when selected amount of moisture has been removed from the air and will automatically turn the compressor back on if the humidity level goes above the desired setting. Thank you.

      can this model be used with an extension cord?   (9 Answers)

      Can this model be used with an extension cord?

        Answer

        Yes, but as with any high wattage device, you need to be aware of the cord length and the gauge of the wire. The safest bet is to use a cord designed for air conditioners. What should you look for? A grounded cord (3 prong), 14 gauge wire or lower if the length is 10 feet or less. You could go with a longer cord of up to 25 foot in length but the wire gauge would need to be 12 gauge or less (the lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire). Hope this helps.

          Yes and I did. I bought the 3 year warranty because it's cheaper than buying a whole new unit.

            No. A pump is not included with this unit. A hose can be connected to a floor drain.

              The memory retains your settings so when the power returns it starts right back to what you set up.
