    This is at least our third dehumidifier and so far this one has performed the best. It is fairly quiet and does a good job of lowering the humidity in our finished basement. The true test will be how long it runs well. Other brands have failed in only a few years so time will tell.

    Works Great in Basement

    By: mtnsquid on 11/13/2014

    I got this for a basement that is relatively small. It is always damp and gets wet during rain. Because of good reviews and a positive experience with Frigidaire, I got this model. It has worked great. Basement is dryer, smells better.

    Bought it after we had flooding and needed to dry out the air in the basement. It works well, runs quite. Only thing I would like is if it had a setting to allow for automatic monitoring to turn on and off as needed. It does have timer but once it is off it's off until you turn it on again.

    2nd unit both going strong

    By: TallyRich on 10/23/2014

    I purchased one of these for my basement a couple of years ago. After moving to Vermont I found summers quite humid and decided I needed one for upstairs as well. They unit works well, but is about as loud as a small window A/C unit. I did contact tech support as it seems strange to me that it will try to start, wait about 30 seconds try again and again a third time - then on the 4th try it starts right up and runs fine. Once the humidity reaches the proper value it shuts off and when it's time to start up again it goes through the "cycling" again. Tech support says that is normal and it's been working fine for 3 months. We'll see how it goes. Overall it does a good job, but I've got to get a way to pipe the drain outside - the container will fill about once a day in the summer.

    Works fine

    By: AR on 10/23/2014

    The dehumidifier works fine. I like how it looks. The controls are easy to use. It does have a "noisy" noise when running, but not loaud or uncomfortable, just wish it were milder. I also wish it would show the current humidity when it is set on a timer - it just shows the time, no humidity level. Also, I agree with the other reviewers that the handle on the bucket seems flimsy and I always take extra care supporting the bucket from below when taking it out. Luckily, I don't have to do it very often, but it is an inconvenience since the bucket is very full and spills easily. Also, after the bucket is removed, the water drips inside from the top, no matter how long I wait after the beep to take out the bucket. I would expect the water to have stopped dripping by that time, but alas, it always goes onto the floor, so i need to have a towel nearby. One more thing, when set to a desired level of humidity and running, it will stop when the humidity level is reached (this is expected) but then when the humidity rises, it switches on for a brief time and then switches back off, often very quickly. I find this irritating and probably not good for the operation of the unit itself, so I prefer to set it to a slightly lower level and have it running longer and than just switch it off. All this apart, I like how it controls the humidity.

    Doing it job

    By: Ken on 10/18/2014

    I put it in a finished basement. On 'continuous' I emptied it twice a day. When set at 50% it runs about the same. Haven't tried attaching an external hose yet. The bucket handle is a nice feature that I didn't notice at first, but you have to almost remove the bucket entirely(making the bucket a bit tippy) before you can use it. The bucket has a bit to much plastic in it for my comfort. I worry that I might break it if I push to hard/crookedly when I reinstall it. Keypad switches are easy to use. It has both a carrying handle and wheels, which is nice, but the handle is a bit flimsy (plastic also). The fan is a little louder than I would like, but it does draw a lot of air thru it , which is good because it draws air in from the whole room. I would recommend this product.

    By: rowan on 10/18/2014

    After a month of use, I conclude that the dehumidifier works very well quick and quiet, however the catch container is made from a very flimsy plastic and the handle on the container has already dislocated. I must get a condensation pump, divert the condensate and bypass the collection tank.

    Great device for keeping your basement dry

    By: Pam on 10/16/2014

    I've been using this is our home's lower level for the past month and it has done a good job keeping it at the desired humidity level. Definitely follow the instructions and leave it run constantly for the first 4-5 days as this will give it time to reduce the ambient humidity in the room (and not just the air humidity).

    Ignorant About dehumidifiers

    By: elcecelia on 9/22/2014

    Our boiler had recently been replaced but we were still having trouble with the basement heating. The humidifier was apparently not working. I did not know enough to replace it and so relied on Internet reviews. Your dehumidifier has reduced the humidity to acceptable levels (from 90%) and has modulated the heat in the basement. Needless to say, in Buffalo, heating concerns are critical. We are pleased with the results.

    Keeps the Basement Dry

    By: Don on 9/19/2014

    Bought the 50 pint version to replace a similar unit (different brand) that failed after 12 years. After installation, humidity in my 1000 Sq Ft basement dropped from 80% to 50% within a couple of days, and has kept it at that level ever since. I connected a hose from the dehumidifier directly to a drain so I don't need to empty the bucket (highly recommended). Minor issues: 1) Fan runs longer than it needs to after the compressor stops, but it does eventually shut off. 2) The unit's humidistat consistently reads about 10% higher than the actual level measured by two other humidistats that I use to check it against. To maintain 50% humidity, I set the unit to read 60%

    Honest Review

    By: The Kat on 8/19/2014

    Compressor runs with a high pitch hum. Indication of the Ambient Humidity is very inaccurate. My reliable hygrometer reads 37% while the dehumidifier by it, reads 50% RH. Clean Filter light comes on when filter IS NOT visibly dirty. probably because this feature runs on elapsed time rather than on sensing resistance to air flow through filter. BAD DESIGN.

    I have to admit that while I am satisfied with the unit AND it is doing the job, it changed after the first week of use. Initial start revealed a nice quiet motor...after a week, it did get a bit louder but not unbearably loud. it also throws off A LOT of heat so while the air gets drier it also gets quite hot in a smaller room.

    I've had this dehumidifier for about 2 months now. It's really helped keep my 1920s basement free of humid musty air. The appliance ran non stop for the first few days to bring the humidity level down to the desired level, and now it only needs to run an hour or so total everyday, maybe slightly more if it's been raining outside and the foundation is soaked. Hopefully this appliance will last a few years.

This dehumidifier helped INSTANTLY by dropping the humidity in our basement from 75 to a comfortable 50 in just one day and we've been running it consistently throughout the summer now. The timer function is simple and intuitive and cleaning the filter is as easy as cleaning your lint catcher on your dryer. We love it and have recommended it to our friends and family.

    Excellent dehumidifier. Works tirelessly and the bucket fills up fast. Two things to note: first, if it sits on an unlevel floor, the fan makes noise, and second, if the timer is on, there is no humidity indicator, it shows time left. This doesn't affect performance: the air quality in the basement has improved.

    By: Smolin14 on 7/24/2014

    I bought this hoping to get a dehumidifier that was middle of the road. That is exactly what it is. It works great, basement was dry feeling within the first 2 days. It takes a ton of water out of the air in a relatively short period of time! The only thing i would change is the design of the container pour spout. It doesn't really have one and tends to pour all over when I try to dump it down our floor drain. Yes, there is an automatic drain that I could plug a hose into, i just haven't bought one! Overall, i'm very satisfied.

    Our first unit worked well. Bought locally at an appliance dealer. The unit ran very well the first year. We turned it off in winter but when we turned it back on in spring, the coils froze up continually and would not pull moisture from the air. We contacted the local dealer and they looked into it and the warranty on the unit ran out by a couple of weeks. However the exteneded part of the warranty was still good and Frigidaire replaced the unit without hassles. New unit is running very well.

    It's quiet and very effective at removing humidity from my finished basement. The only thing that I don't care for is the fan runs continuously. My previous Soleus Air could be set to run a preset duration and shutoff. Other than that one issue, this is a very good dehumidifier.

    Easy to set up. Would be amazing in a basement, but I do not have one. It is a little loud for the living room, but it works so good, I do not need to run it much. I bought this after a couple lesser non-Frigidaire dehumidifiers, and I have been SO happy with it. I set the desired humidity, forget about it for a few day, and it beeps at me when the collection bucket needs to be dumped. The fan has high and low settings if needed.

    We had water damage in our basement, and so a musty smell. We got this just when it happened and there are tips which come with it to help for just that problem. It's pulling tons of water out of the basement but it doesn't heat up the basement like our last one. The size is perfect for our 30x25 basement (partitioned into rooms). The buttons were a little confusing at first, but then I figured it out. It also beeps to change the filter when there's nothing worth cleaning. But still thrilled!

    Full-featured Model FAD504DWD operates very quietly in basement. Self-drain feature works flawlessly since unit is located near sump. Previously owned two non-Frigidaire dehumidifiers with electronic controls which failed after three years. Can one hope that this Frigidaire model will perform for 8-10 years before a breakdown, like those of twenty-five years ago when the controls were manual and the compressors were manufactured domestically?

    Made in China Dehunidifier

    By: quality1 on 6/16/2014

    Purchased a 70 and 50 pint dehumidifier to replace our 40 year old Sears dehumidifiers. These were made from metal and performed very well until one recently failed. Both were replaced with Frigidaire Made in China Dehumidifiers on May 13, 2014. They, like their predecessors were set up on 8 hour per day timers and run at night when the power cost is low. They were easy to set up and run. They run continuously during the 8 hour shift. The 70 pint exit air is a bit colder when compared to the 50 pint. Both are set to continuously drain. Their cabinet design makes it difficult to verify the coldness of the coils. Exit air blows at the top of the unit which is OK for the 70 pint used in the main basement area. The 50 pint is used in a 4 foot high crawl storage space which taxes the exit air distribution. The previous Sears units exit air was linear from the front of the cabinet and posed no air distribution concerns. Compressors are very quiet when compared to the 40 year old Sears units. Checking for coil freeze up is almost impossible. These units were recommended by CR. However, based upon dealer conversations and the issues at hand with the sub-contractor of the dehumidifier to Frigidaire, prognosis is that the reliability of these units will not come even close to that of the Sears units. That is why, extended warranty contract was purchased.

    What a difference!

    By: Alex1453 on 6/14/2014

    Living in an older house (i.e. poorly insulated, old windows, etc.), warmer and more humid weather has always been a disaster: the air conditioners can only do so much. This year, before it got too hot, I decided to take the plunge and buy a dehumidifier to work in tandem with the air conditioners. Overall, I've been amazed with the performance of this product: due to using it, not only do the air conditioners not have to work as hard, but they also don't need to bet set at as low of a temperature. Though the machine is small and doesn't get in the way, the reservoir is still substantial enough (~2 gallons) that you're not having to empty it every couple of hours. This has made life so much more comfortable during the summer, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

    I have no problems with this dehumidifier, which is more than I can say about my last two (different brands). It works well and I've had no problems with it. In answer to the question on this site, "Would you recommend this product to a friend?" yes I would but the site allows only 2 choices, either "probably not" or "yes, it's amazing," which is absurd! It's not amazing; it has worked well for the 6 weeks that I've had it, as it should, and if Frigidaire considers that to be amazing then they need to re-examine their corporate values.

    Frigidaire Dehumidifier

    By: Eddie on 12/29/2013

    I enjoy this product alot because of its price and features. It takes the smell or mold out of the basement and lowers the humidity in the room at a comfortable 4o relatively humidity range. I would recommend this to another homeowner or renter anytime. The financing is a great feature too.

    Perfect for our small basement! If you can hook up drainage via a hose to sump or other outlet, then even better. Minimal maintenance. A great buy!

    So Far So Good

    By: Mo on 12/24/2013

    We'd originally purchased a little smaller Frigidaire dehumidifier unit in May, but had trouble with the condenser freezing up in less than 90 days. We were impressed with Frigidaire's guarantee policy, and decided to try another unit. Thus far, there have been no problems with this unit.

    Good Porduct so far

    By: John on 12/18/2013

    This is my second Frigidaire dehumidifier. I bought one that and it lasted about 2 years and I was disappointed when it quit. Something seemed to rust apart that looks like a sensor. I bought another after reading reviews in CR. So far it has worked great. the water bucker handle fell off soon after I had it and I was sent a new one. Perhaps not sturdy enough for a full bucket of water. I hope it last as one I had yeas ago that lasted for 20 years (Oasis I think it was.). I would buy it again so far.

    The Awsome Dehumidifier

    By: Tom R--R on 12/17/2013

    I live in the Southeast and learned quickly that a basement house here just has to have a good functioning dehumidifier in the basement to control the mildew. My first Frigidaire was purchased in the early 80's and lasted about 10 years. That first unit really worked great and ended-up at the dump because it didn't have a filter and I didn't clean out the intake. My second unit was a bit smaller (I saved a few $) but the savings wasn't worth it, I was constantly dumping the water bucket because the unit was too small for the area I was controlling. Even though it was smaller than the first, it still lasted more than 10 years Being a little older now, it is harder to get up and down the steps to the basement so I splurged this past year and bought the larger, 50 pint unit and it is working just as good as the earlier ones and is saving my back. I try to keep my basement at a little less than 40% humidity and this year I purchased a humidity and found that my unit was actually getting 37% or 38% when it was set at 45%, the only thing I have found lacking in the unit.

    By: Jim on 10/20/2013

    The unit failed after just 4 months, and this was a replacement for another unit that failed after only 3 years. My old unit was over 30 years old, so it is disappointing to have 2 new units fail in 4 years.

    By: Tim on 10/2/2013

    The handle to carry the water reservoir away is very nice. Only thing I don't like is that it does not seem to have a humidity range. When it stops after bringing the humidity down it starts right back up again. Thus starting and stopping frequently. That gets annoying. As a result it seems to run much more than necessary.

    Works Great!

    By: Dave on 10/2/2013

    This model works well in our humid basement. Frigidaire made some improvements over our previous model. That one had served us well for a few years until the compressor died. (Covered by the warranty.) I was pleased to see Frigidaire did not get caught up too badly in the recent CPSC dehumidifier recall.

    It Works!

    By: JJ on 10/2/2013

    It does the job. We no longer have a sauna in the basement! And it's pretty quiet. Heat and humidity in our area can be unbearable, we have a stone foundation - and this adds up to much humidity in the basement. Plugged it in, ran a hose to the outlet for continuous drain and in no time at all the humidity dropped from unbelievable to comfortable. Recommend this unit.

    GETS THE JOB DONE

    By: JB on 9/26/2013

    My new Frigidaire 50-pint dehumidifier seems to be operating perfectly since I got it as a replacement for a similar one I had a couple years. This one is more modern and easy to move around in my good-sized basement. I was very pleased with the replacement procedure Frigidaire has in place for my area as my prior unit was failing to draw water and was still under warranty. Everyone I talked to was super nice, which was a pleasant surprise as I am more used to running into dead ends and uncooperative representatives.

    Frigidaire 50 Pint Dehumidifier

    By: Curt on 9/25/2013

    This unit works great. I like the fact that it shuts off automatically when you remove the holding tank to empty it. Some units that we have owned keep running for a few minutes after the holding tank is removed.

    By: BostonEngineer on 9/25/2013

    My previous FAD504DUD failed after 4 months of service but Frigidaire was great and reimbursed me for full credit, so I purchased the newer FAD504DWD in its place. It has been running now pretty constantly for 3 months and is very quiet and efficient. I would give it five stars if the old one was still running.

    Not too reliable

    By: George on 9/24/2013

    The warranty is pretty good, but it needs to be. I've had this unit replaced under warranty twice now. The last time it cost me $50 to have the old one "recycled" as the original dealer had discontinued this item. Last week I needed to check the date code on the unit to see if it was involved a recall of 2 million units (?) for possible fire hazards. Fortunately, my unit was outside the suspect range. I have several reasons why I can't recommend this unit.

    OK but needs improving!

    By: Bpb on 9/10/2013

    I would rate the overall quality and features of this model as just OK. There are definitely areas for improvement. First, unlike other comparable units, this one only has a "low" and "high" fan speed, no "medium." What I noticed first was the somewhat shoddy construction. The plastic panels do not fit together smoothly and seamlessly. What really bothers me about this unit is the very noticeable hum when the compressor is running. Others in reviews commented that this was a quiet unit, but I don't think so. The single reason I chose it over other units was because the other makes got even worse reliability ratings than this one. I hate buying these small appliances only to have the compressors go out after 6 months to a year.
