    Does a great job

    By: Diane on 10/2/2013

    This remarkable little unit manages to keep my basement dry and comfy, particularly during the in between seasons when the heat or air conditioner are not needed. Would recommend it highly.

    Basement humidifier

    By: gkohio55 on 9/25/2013

    Purchased the Frigidare 30 pint dehumidifier about 4 months ago. So far it has been great. I use it in the basement to keep it dry and it did the job all summer. I'm not sure about the durability since this is the first summer.

    Broke after 3 months. Think it lost refrigerant.

    Most used purchase in our house

    By: Myma on 7/19/2013

    We bought a Frigidaire 30 Pint Capacity Dehumidifier for our basement which always seemed damp and moldy. We could immediately tell the difference after starting the dehumidifier. We empty it twice a day and the bedrooms are dry and clean smelling. We are so thankful that the problem was corrected with this little machine. It is a wiz!

    Great Dehumidifier! Low amperage draw.

    By: BigJ. on 11/3/2012

    Reliable. Works great to bring down the humidity. Low amperage draw is a plus.

    Happy with purchase

    By: Portac on 7/16/2012

    I bought this dehumidifier for my vacation house, and it is exactly what I needed. The manual controls allow it to pop back on in the event of a power blip. I also was able to hook up a hose for automatic draining with no problem. The humidity in my walk out basement is staying between 50-54%.

    Just what I needed

    By: rishof on 4/26/2012

    I had a 1980's model that was loud and didn't have a filter. Not to mention, it was an energy hog and produced a lot of heat. So far, I can't complain. Works great for normal sized areas, most likely too small for full basement use. All in all... solid, well built and modern.

    This unit seems to get the job done with minimum hassle. It makes the usual fan type sound, and you can occasionally hear the drip of the water into the collection bucket. But, it definitely gets the water out of the air, and stops on a dime when the bucket is full. It might be better to buy a larger unit if you have a lot of dampness. But, for an average need, this unit is absolutely fine.

    continuous drain does not work

    By: lpennock on 9/5/2011

    I planned to use this in my basement with a hose hooked to a drain so that I would not have to empty the bucket. When I hooked the hose up the bucket continues to fill. The instructions do not say that you need to do anything other than hook up the hose. I have read other places that you need to take out the styrofoam block in the cut-off float. I just tried this and will wait for it to fill up, but it seems then that the hose will only empty when the bucket overflows, and I would rather the unit not have to run with a constantly full bucket of water. If this method fixes it then it is still a very poorly designed unit given the lack of instructions and the design flaw. If that does not fix it then the unit is just plain terrible.

    Not happy

    By: Lacee on 6/27/2011

    I bought this dehumidifer with the intensions of using the continuous drainage with a hose. That does not work. I hooked up the hose as the instructions say and it still shuts off when the bucket is full. I read the other review that says to remove the styrofoam block, I did still does not work. I may just have a faulty machine but other than the drainage hose not working, the unit seems to be working fine. Very unhappy with it.

    Poor Instructions

    By: Ron on 6/22/2011

    The unit seems well made and is running OK. But, the instructions fail to mention one important detail. For use with a drain hose, the polystyrene block in the float has to be removed. Otherwise, the unit shuts down when the float indicates a full tank. Of course, the instructions should include a strong warning about putting the polystyrene block back into the float if the continuous drain approach is abandoned.
