    Doing the job

    This dehumidifier is doing what it is meant to do. I have it in my basement. I was anxious when reading the reviews to hear that products don't last very long so I purchased a 4 year warranty with it, just in case. I am very pleased with the product at this point but have only had it for a short time. I use the bucket feature. Panel is easy to read and adjust.

    Runs Quiet

    We have had this dehumidifier before, so we knew what we were getting. The handle is thinner, but it does seem to be very quiet when it is running. It is hard to empty the bucket but it is still worth the price. We did take a protection plan because of the reviews.

    Works good, but short lifetime

    This thing worked great for around 3 years. Then, the power button starts to act up and needs multiple presses to take the action. Later, the whole thing turns on/off all by itself and I had to unplug it from the AC. Contacted Frigedaire, they said "There's no repair for this issue". In short, this thing works good but can only live up to 3 years!

    After reading reviews I decided this was the one for me. Easy to set up. Straight from the box to the basement. Have not yet hooked up drain hose but am regularly emptying reservoir. Still need to buy hose. Bought it on sale and had $30 reward money. Super low price. Ordered unit in store and had it delivered to my home. Free shipping. What more can I say. Read the reviews and decide.

    The dehumidifier is very efficient. I like being able to set the % and it will shut off when it reaches that %. It is quiet and does not interfere with the TV when it is running. The bucket is easy to remove and empty. I rolls easily to wherever I want to place it in the room. My electric bill has dropped considerably since I have been using it. It is definitely an energy saver.

    I am very pleased with the Frigidaire dehumidifier I purchased at your store. It was delivered to my home and my grandsons and I unpacked it and set it up in the basement. It is working very effectively for me. You did not have the size I needed, but your sales force assured me it could be ordered and delivered to me and paid for over the 18 months. Everything to my benefit. I am happy!

    Been using dehumidifier for about 7 months, and has works well in removing moisture from my basement area. The dehumidifier been removing a lot of water from basement, and smell of basement is extremely better. I do not not have drain in my basement so I have to empty daily. If drain available unit can empty directly into drain eliminating having to empty.

    We've been using the dehumidifier for about 3 weeks now and it is getting the job done! If I was making the perfect dehumidifier I would make it a little easier to poor the water out and slightly longer cord bit overall it's working great. Takes about a day or two to fill depending on the humidity outside and if we have the AC on.

    This is the perfect dehumidifier, I have it on continuous operation, connected a hose to drain directly into drain.The excess humidity was down within a day . The low humidity content is kept steady percentage. I do wish it was more quiet.

    I use the product in a very humid basement where we've have mold growing. Within one day of running the product the humidity level was brought way down. To get 70 pints from this unit you'd need a very humid environment and need to empty the tank a bunch because it is about 1-2 gallons but it could do it! It does produce some heat in the room when the motor is running.

    The Frigidaire unit pulled 140 pints of water from our basement at max setting each of the first four days of operation. Made a real difference in the musty humidity in our basement and is now operating well at the normal setting and low fan.

    Absolutely does a great job. I have 2 of these to control humidity in my old house with bad aluminum windows. On a humid day they will both remove a bucket full of water from the interior air. The quality and feel of the air is now a 1000 times better than before. It's pleasant and no more mustiness. Had I known about these I would have bought them years ago.

    The humidifier is excellent. It works well but the water collection bucket is small and needs emptied frequently if you have a very humid room. Best Buy sent me one that was in a package that was all beat up and ragged. They obviously wanted to get this one out of the warehouse. It works great but BB should never have sent this one out.

    I purchased the Frigidaire dehumidifier because of the 5 year warranty on the freon sealed system. - From the second to the fifth year from your original purchase date, Electrolux will repair or replace any parts in the Sealed Refrigeration System (compressor, condenser, evaporator and tubing) that prove to be defective in materials or workmanship.

    Needed to replace previous dehumidifier for our damp basement. This one really pulls water out of the air! More efficient and quiet than the previous one. However, the previous model also had a cycle option, which I liked -- you could set it to go on for 2 or 4 hours, then off for 2 or 4 hours. This one can be set to run continuously or for a limited number of hours.

    I purchased this one to replace a similar Frigidaire dehumidifier that failed under warranty. Seems to work well, as did the previous one. Good warranty response on the part of Frigidaire. We did not have to ship back the failed humidifier. They just paid for a replacement but it took a couple of calls to get to that point.

    Hard to remove the drawer, and harder to get it back in again. Also, it starts to spew hot air and heat up the basement after it's been running for a while. I spent almost $300 on this model, I've only had it for a month, and it's just not that good.

    • Brand response

      FrigidaireSupport

      I'm very saddened to hear that you feel this way, SWOO. Please note when the unit is started, the fan begins to pull moisture-laden air across the dehumidifying coils. The coils condense or draw moisture from the air, and air flows through the top louvers into the room as dry, warm air. Moisture removed from the air is collected in a bucket on the front of the dehumidifier. The unit will not work
      properly if the temperature is out of this temperature range of 41 °F (5 °C), and 96 °F (35 °C). Please contact us at 1-888-203-1389 Monday-Friday 8am-8pm and Saturday 8am-6pm EST if you have any additional questions. Best, Maggie Frigidaire

    My old dehumidifier was recalled,so I researched and red reviews on line. This was a little over what I wanted to spend but I wanted to pull more moisture out of the basement. It works great,you can hook it up to a hose or just empty bucket,it has a timer and moisture control which my last one didnt. The basement feels much warmer and no more musty smell.

    I had this identical unit for 3 years until it was recalled. I was so happy with the unit that I decided to order it again. The recent models are not part of the recall. It tells me when to clean the filter and shuts off when the desired humidity level has been reached. Very happy with the product as well as the price.

    It appears to be quiet but I have it in my basement so I am not usually near it. My basement is very damp and I don't empty the water often enough so it runs constantly until it's full. It lowers the humidity level to near what I want but since I neglect to empty it regularly it starts to climb back up. I would recommend buying this product.
