    A Necessity for Florida Homes!

    By: Smoopy65 on 3/21/2015

    This is our first dehumidifier and I'm hoping/praying we won't have to replace it anytime soon. We are emptying the tank on this booger once to twice a day. The only cons are that the tank is very heavy to empty and I usually end up spilling some on the way to the sink. Also, the handle is plastic and held in place with more plastic, so it will break if you're not using more than just the handle to support it when dumping the water. Another con, or more appropriately, an unnecessary feature on this dehumidifier is the digital "barometer". It's never right, but what sense does it make to put a barometer sensor in a machine that sucks water out of the air???! LMBO!!! We purchased a separate barometer that we hang on a wall nearby to get a real humidity reading. I can say that this dehumidifier is, so far, doing it's job, but the real test has yet to come...Summer, when humidity is at it's highest here in the Sunshine State. If we make it through the Summer without an instance of mildew showing up on the furniture, we're good to go! ;-)

    Worked great at first

    By: TD on 3/20/2015

    All was well for the first 6 months of operation, then it turned into a solid block of ice and ran continuously without reducing the humidity in the room. In fact, it left a puddle which caused damage to the bottom of some furniture in the vicinity. The company was good enough to ship a replacement unit, but I would be cautious in purchasing another one of these. Hopefully, this was an isolated failure and will not recur.

    By: LaserShark on 3/20/2015

    Dehumidifiers are, in theory, designed for a five year life span. This one feels like it will go the distance, but time will have to tell on that. The top vents are just a bit problematic for the space that it lives in (its predecessor had side vents).

    great product

    By: zoro on 3/15/2015

    This is the first dehumidifier I have ever purchased so I don't have anything to compare to, but I did a lot of research online before purchasing and this was very high rated overall. I have been very pleased with how quickly it has resolved our wetness issues. It is a little noisy but I mostly run it in my bedroom during the daytime when I'm not in there so it doesn't really bother me. It does kick out a little bit of heat which could be an issue in warmer weather or climates-but I have been running it during winter time in the rainy PNW so that hasn't been an issue so far. Doesn't seem to pull too much electricity either-our electric bill really doesn't seem to have changed. It definitely has made a big difference in terms of comfort level for my allergies and getting rid of musty/moldy odors. We are moving to a new house soon which I am hoping will not have the dampness issues we have had living in a trailer!!

    Fridgidare Dehumidifier

    By: George on 3/13/2015

    The 70 pint model is very efficient and appears to work great in eliminating water in my downstairs rec room. I wish the bucket system in empting it would be easier. I went out to buy a pump so that I don't have to empty it at all. Would have been nice to have the pump built in at the 70 pint level.,

    Whining!

    By: Robert on 3/13/2015

    The dehumidifier makes a high pitching whining noise that is truly annoying If I turn it off and then turn it on in 30 seconds, it stops whining, then starts agai. Not a good bet for long time use I will try to return it.

    My place isn't moldy anymore!

    By: Tay on 2/26/2015

    My only complaint is that it's a little louder than one I had purchased in Spain - that one is still working, but I'm no longer in Spain! I live in the basement apartment of an old building and my place is super humid. It definitely kicks butt sucking out all the water of the air, I just wish I had gone one size smaller, or at least that it made a little less noise. I have to close my door to my bedroom at night. Besides that it's a fabulous product and I'm a happy camper!

    Nice, but has real design flaw

    By: Donna H on 2/25/2015

    I bought this unit to remove moisture from my house so I would feel better. Having significant joint issues, humidity can be a real problem. And it does that beautifully. I have it next to a pedestal sink so it's easy to empty the tank (no real way to use a hose to drain it). And therein lies the problem. While this unit pulls a tremendous amount of moisture, the tank has two very serious design flaws. First, the handle gets easily stuck. And you can't get it out. I've had this happen twice now, and this second time may mean breaking the tank trying to get it out. Second. The same handle will disengage from the tank. And that means water everywhere if you're not lucky. Those two issues are enough that I can't recommend this unit.

    a little noisy. Sometimes makes a whining sound that is pretty annoying but not all the time. I use this unit in a smaller one bedroom apartment in Juneau, Alaska. The moisture level is very high here most of the time but this unit really pulls it out of the air. I also like how it freshens the air. The only reason that ai gave this machine 4 stars is because of the whine that it makes sometimes. I considered returning it due to it but after a few weeks the family and I hardly notice it.

    I have lived in my present home for 38 years and always had a dehumidifier in the basement. Been through 4 other brands. This Frididaire 70 pint is SUPERIOR all around. QUIET, EASY TO EMPTY, VERY EASY TO OPERATE, ACTUALLY TURNS OFF COMPLETELY AT TIMES, NEVER CONTINUOUSLY RUNS LIKE OTHERS. DOES A FANTASTIC JOB! Owned it for 6 months, through a summer too!

    Have had bad luck with dehumidifiers. One broke a week after the guarantee ran out. This is our first from Frigidaire, and it has done a great job. Removes huge amounts of moisture. Hook up with hose or you will be emptying the bucket often. On the basis of one full season, would definitely recommend this model.

    It works, but for how long.

    By: Ethan on 10/23/2014

    The product works as expected and is actually quieter than my previous unit. My biggest concern isn't how it works now, but long term how will it work. I haven't been impressed with the normal dehumidifiers' lifespan. Seems like they only live for 1-5 years... maybe they should be made of better quality materials so they last longer (5-10+yrs).

    By: Braja on 10/22/2014

    The product works as advertised. Quite accurate with sensing humidity (used an independent hygrometer). Only one observation - the unit's fan turns on and off for a sec occasionally without the compressor turning on. This most likely happens due to the senor sensing borderline humidity levels and attempting to start but then realizing as soon as the fan blows that the humidity is not quite there. I would not expect the unit to behave this way. This happens 3-4 times spread across a few mins and then the compressor finally turns on. The unit is very effective and reasonably quiet (may need o turn up the TV volume a bit).

    Pretty good unit

    By: Karen on 10/21/2014

    I've had it a few months in my damp basement/family room. It's very quiet compared to other units I have owned. Easy control panel. Lots of choices for operation. Quick fill. Nice looking design. Slim, rolls easily, decent cord length. Fragile handle tabs - any stress other than a straight lift risks busting it. Tank is rounded in the back at the bottom, so it's hard to lift from the bottom and a bit sloshy if you just lift with the swinging handle because it fills almost to the top. It's awkward to empty. I busted the handle the 1st or 2nd time I emptied it because I held onto the handle - but I couldn't hold it with the rounded bottom easily. Company replace the whole tank immediately after I notified them. (They really could have just sent another handle - they need to redesign that handle). There is no clear "pour" area so it's hard to know the best angle to tip it to dump the water out. Clumsy design in that area. Still, it seems to work efficiently, is super quiet. It has a "clean filter" indicator, so I washed out the filter when the light went on. Easy job. Overall, outside of the awkward emptying, it's a unit that seems worth the price and does the job. I'm happy with it, especially the quietness.

    Works well but too much heat

    By: Claudio on 10/16/2014

    Unit works well in regards to lowering the humidity. However it generates a lot of heat. Our pervious de-humidifier did not generate as much heat although it also did not work as well in lowering the humidity so this maybe a trade off all manufacturers have to make. Another minor issue is that the clean filter warning light came on even though the filter is clean.

    By: nothingsimpleg1 on 10/16/2014

    so far it's working better than my old dehumidifier that wasn't working :) I would say that it isn't super quiet but it's not too noisy compared to some I've heard. Puts out a lot of heat which is typical for these things. My only real complaint and maybe this isn't a big deal, but it seems to ask to have the filter cleaned a lot. I'm guessing it's just set to an automatic time interval. It hasn't looked dirty to me when I've gone to clean it so maybe I can ignore it every other time. That's about all I can say about this. Hopefully I'll still be happy with it in two years, ten years, etc.

    We've had to use a dehumidifier for the past 5 years. We've purchased units from big box stores, major online retailers and retailers who specifically cater to solving humidity problems. All have failed from anywhere from a few months to 2 years. We've been using the Frigidaire practically everyday for the last 3 months. It does a more than adequate job of removing humidity from our house and hasn't shown any signs of any diminishing capacity. It's easy to maintain and we haven't noticed any spikes in our electric bills. If we can get a few years of service from this unit then I would consider it as money well-spent.

    Very efficient at lowering basement humidity

    By: Jim on 10/2/2014

    We had a wet cement floored and cement block walled basement. It got so damp last year that there were standing puddles of water on the concrete floor. When I first put this unit down there, the humidity level was around 75%. After running the dehumidifer for 8 hours or so, the level dropped to around 50%, and continued to decrease. I have it draining directly into a floor drain, and I could hear the water pouring down the drain from the hose. The unit is fairly quiet and does not rattle, even when running; it sounds similar to a 7000 BTU window air conditioner running at low to medium speed. I'm pleased overall with this unit. The plastic parts do seem as if they might turn out to be a bit fragile long term, though.

    By: Andy on 10/2/2014

    Unit appears to do its job well. When set in auto-mode, unit frequently turns on and then immediately shuts back off. I'm assuming it has to do that in order to gauge the humidity in the air and when it determines the air is at the right level, it turns back off. I would think there would be a better way to do this without the fan actually turning on. Otherwise, I'm satisfied with the operation and functionality of the unit.

    Frigidaire stands behind their warranty as this is my fourth Frigidaire unit in 7 years. I've only had this one for two months but so far it is working well. I really like the improvements over the last unit I had. I like that the air blows out throught the top of the unit. Connecting a hose to the unit is much simpler than the the earlier units and it runs more quietly. I have set it for 40% humidity but the dial has never read below 50%. I have a second Frigidaire unit also running--the dial on that one displays 40% and it doesn't run continuously like the new unit does in spite of the fact that they are both in the same room.

    This thing has been running non stop since I bought it. I am not sure if it is supposed to. I set the humidity to 50% and it reached that relatively quickly. Despite this, the fan continues to run. I am guessing this is just a feature to circulate fresh air and that the dehumidifier is not actually continuing to take moisture out of the air. Regardless this is has been the best dehumidifier I have had so far. In my current house, this is my fifth dehumidifier. Most of them run hot, don't reach the desired humidity, freeze up, ect. I have been running this one for two months and it has been working great. I attached a hose and have it running into my floor drain which is a great feature. It does increase my electric bill as all of them do. Overall, at this point, I am completely satisfied with this product and the value for the price.

    We purchased this product after reading several online reviews. It works well, removes a great deal of moisture from our basement. We have it set @60% humidity which seems to be good for our basement area. We tried running it at 55% but the unit ran constantly probably due to the wetness of the area. The only "criticism" I have is that the fan will turn on and off rapidly between cycles. It seems that the minute it registers a higher humidity than what is set the fan kicks on, which drops the humidity level very quickly. It's a tad annoying when you are in the room and the unit is doing this, but a small price to pay for a solid piece of equipment

    This unit was a replacement for a 5 year old one we had. The company replaced our old unit but did take a few weeks to get the go ahead for the new one. The product performs well and we will probably never buy anything but a Frigidaire from now on.

    This is the third unit I have had. The first one froze up after a year. The second froze up after 2 years. Frigidaire replaced the second and so far it is working fine. The test is to see if it still working after 2 years. I like the indicator reminding you that the filter needs cleaned.

    It does its job

    By: j d on 8/19/2014

    This dehumidifier has a hose attached to it so the water can be disposed of via a sump pump. Every day, the alarm goes off to clean the filter. There is absolutely nothing on the filter, you can see right through the grids. The water that is being collected is cleaner than my tapwater. This unit was more expensive than the other unit (yes, I have 2 dehumidifiers and 2 sump pumps) which is a competitors, does the job it is supposed to do. I have not had a minute of problems with the other unit. The Frigidaire cost more money but I have to clean the filter which is already clean and is becoming a pain in the you know what. I can't afford to buy another one yet, but as soon as I have the funds, you can bet I will have another one of the same brand of my other unit. This really surprises me as I had a Frigidaire refrigerator that lasted 20 years. My current refrigerator is probably close to 20 years and I have not had a problem with either of them. However, these things are not made like they use to be.

    Frigidaire 70 Pint Capacity Dehumidifier

    I am happy with the Frigidaire 70 Pint Capacity Dehumidifier. It is much quieter than the last one we had that we had.

I hooked a hose up to it with a swivel adapter and ran it right into the downstairs shower stall.

    I've gone through a dehumidifier about once every-other year. Granted they were typically from a hardware chain-store but were a well-known brand and reasonably priced. After the last one died, again, I did some consumer reports searching and happened upon this Frigidaire. It too was reasonably priced but what a difference from the others! This unit is VERY quiet compared to the others I've had, and also very efficient. The construction is much better, especially regarding handles and hose attachment. The engineering also seems much better, with proper airflow to keep compressor cooled - I am very satisfied. The only thing outstanding is my HOPE that this unit lasts much longer than the competitors I've tried. I use this unit to dehumidify a ~2500 sqftbasement, around 1900 is finished but I dehumidify the whole thing.

    I purchased Frigidaire's 70 pint dehumidifier for use in an exercise room. It dehumidifies well, but has an extremely loud compressor squeal. I returned the first, thinking it was defective, but the replacement is just as noisy. It simply can't be used in an occupied room. If you want to dehumidify a crawl space, fine. Don't even try to use it in a room where people will be. Definitely a mistake on my part. I'm disappointed.

Leaving it run full time, I was able to get the humidity down to just under 50 percent. Now I have set up to keep things at 55 percent and it is running an acceptable amount of time and is keeping the whole basement at that level even when placed in the utility room.

    Model FAD704DWD works as advertised. My only complaint is that it has a little high pitch sound when running and thus isn't as quiet as I had hoped or as other reviews stated. I also have another brand that works well too and it does not have the high pitch sound. This model has an attractive design and is well constructed. I would recommend this model. My humidifiers are in the basement, so the additional noise is acceptable to me.

    Frigidaire 70 Pint Dehumidifier

    By: Carrie on 7/24/2014

    Unfortunately, my unit never cuts off, even when the specified humidity level has been attained. Design of top located output for the dehumidified air might have have been better if located on the opposite end of the unit from the input. By coming out the top, it is difficult to direct the dehumidified air towards the largest part of the room being dehumidified. This unit may have a defective fan control, or humidity sensor, since the fan NEVER cuts off.

    Works like a charm

    By: rfaldasz on 7/24/2014

    Maybe because the last one was old but this unit appears to be much more efficient. The basement was getting a bit damp and musty after the last dehumidifier (different brand) had died. We bought this one a couple weeks ago and it has been running constantly trying to get the humidity level down. I don't recall the size of the bucket in the last one. But this one seems to fill rather quickly. If we are home, we would have to dump it at least twice a day. Has a slight hum when it runs. But other than that it's been sucking moisture out of the air like a champ. Would have gone with 5 stars except the buck seems a bit small, fills up too quickly. But that may be the unit works well.

    Works as Advertised

    By: Dave J on 7/24/2014

    It performs as advertised. The only issue I have is that it never turns off. I have it set for 45 humidity and that's what it registers. It is in an unfinished basement and is the right size to lower the humidity. I tried turning it off and back on, but nothing changed. Actually I'm all right with this as long as it keeps the humidity where it is, because it only runs for about 4 months before I turn it off for the year. The real test is how long it lasts. The prior dehumidifiers I bought lasted barely more than a season before clanking out.

    By: rwjax on 7/17/2014

    The unit works very well, and really sucks the water out of the air. The only criticism I would offer is that the collection container can be a little tricky to remove without spilling water, and seems a little fragile when replacing it in the unit. I love the fact that there is a handle on the top of this. What a simple idea but significant improvement for anyone who needs to move the unit, especially up or down stairs.

    Purchased this 2 months ago because of a recall for our previous another brand dehumidifier. Works well and really like the timer feature where you can set it to come on in X number of hours or if already running, can be set to shut off in X number of hours. Noise level is fine, although it has a high pitched sound to it. Most dehumidifiers are noisy but this is tolerable. Water reservoir seems sticky sliding in and out sometimes but again, this is not a deal breaker. Purchase this make and model per Consumer Report review that it was one of the top rated.

    Handle not made well

    By: Stubby on 6/19/2014

    After the second empty of the bucket the Handle broke loose out of its housing. Not real happy about this.

    70 Pint Dehumidifier

    By: Waterduck on 6/19/2014

    The unit works well but has somewhat of a shrill whistle-sound. Fortunately it's in the basement and we don't have to listen to it.

    First Dehumidifier

    By: Joe Z on 6/19/2014

    This is my first dehumidifier and I let it run in the basement. Have used both the bucket and hose hookup. Only con is that it does seem like the fan does run all the time though I do see water dripping from the hose all the time

    Made in China Dehumidifier

    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.

    OK

    By: Cliff on 6/15/2014

    Unit was a replacement for 50 pt humidifier that had been recalled. I opted for a 70 pt unit with the idea that it would do the job quicker and remove more moisture than the older unit. My main complaint is that the fan tends to run all the time, even when the compressor is not on. I suspect that the on/off tolerances for the fan are too close and this make the unit cycle too fast thereby not giving the fan a chance to cut off. I would be hesitant to recommend this unit because of the constant noise.

    Instant impact

    By: oddman on 6/13/2014

    Unboxed it, plugged it in and within 4 hours the basement air was noticeably free of the mustiness that comes with summer humidity. More than 2 months later, it's been sucking 140 pints out of the air daily with no signs of slowing down.

    Good value - so far

    By: nad on 6/13/2014

    I purchased this unit for he downstairs area which is half furnished. The unit is situated in a utility room to relieve the living area of noise and allow drainage. I have not utilized the reservoir on the unit and so will not comment on that. The unit was easy to setup and has presented no problems. I did purchase in store warranty as reviews I had read indicated these were prone to failure. The filter is easily accessed for cleaning and the unit has been keeping the downstairs comfortable. I was hoping to find a highly rated unit that could pump the water outside as this would make the placement of the unit more flexible.

    Very Efficient and Convenient

    By: KOB on 6/13/2014

    This model is very efficient and does a nice job collecting water. The model is a little loud, but the noise does not pose a problem when used in the basement. The only issue I have is the bucket appears to be made out of thinner plastic. If you change it on a regular basis I can see the material possibly breaking. Other than that the model is as advertised at a decent price. I would recommend this product to a friend.

    By: Jason on 6/12/2014

    This is my 3rd dehumidifer in 15 years, and it is the most quiet one yet. We have a full walkout basement, and I have it in the unfinished laundry room to keep the basement from getting too humid and musty. I have to actually go into the laundry room to hear if it is on. From the main room in the basement you can't tell, it's that quiet. No leakage, unlike others that I've seen. Overall a great product at a great price.

    This is quiet, easy to move, attractive, does a great job pulling water from the air, but it's impossible to remove the plastic housing at the top to clean the inside of the container, and when full, the handle does not feel substantial enough to support the weight.

    This is my third dehumidifier that i have owned. First one by Frigidaire, and let me tell you this one is the best. Very quiet and energy efficient. Slim design does not take up alot of space. I have the 70 model size and takes care of my 1,500 sf basement with ease. Love the hose connector as my drain is far away. The digital display for humidity seem accurate enough for my use. Highly rated by CR helped with my decision.

    We only owned it for about 1 month and the handle broke, not very durable. It took several phone calls to get rectified, I wanted a new bucket assembly, they said no they have to replace whole unit and they would get back to me within 48 hours. After 3-4 days, I called them again and they decided to send me the whole bucket. Which I wanted in the first place. And it was shipped very quick, thank you
