Questions & Reviews
70 Pint Capacity Dehumidifier is rated
Rated 1 out of
This unit was warranty replacement for one that quit within 3 months. This replacement unit is a junker, most likely factory reject used for warranty replacements. It wasn't shipped in retail packaging like ones sold by retailers, it was shipped in brown cardboard box. Such packaging is non-issue, but the unit collects very little water for some reason regardless of settings. Compared to the good unit which I still own, it consistently collets 80% less water when both units run at the same time. If one dehumidifier fills up the bucket, and the replacement collects several cups, it is logical to conclude that replacement unit is junk.

Purchased this product in mid-August 2015. Used for only a couple of months in 2015 and approximately 6 months in 2016. When I started using it in April 2017 it kept shutting off and displaying the "EC" code. The operating room temperature is between 68 to 72° F and the outlet voltage is 115V±10%. Repeated unplugging and re-plugging of the unit (as suggested in the Operating Instructions) does not correct the problem. I note that this identical problem has been reported concerning this model dehumidifier numerous times on this and other websites. Based on the frequency of occurrence, something is obviously amiss in the design and/or
manufacture of this product.

Solved a "host" of problems!!
I work in a church building built in the 50s in South Louisiana where the humidity in the summertime is unbelieveable!!! I was calling our copier service people out almost every week due to paper jams. Turns out, the paper was staying wet from the humidity. The machine arrived and was so simple to use! Simple instructions and, basically, plug and go! Has lots of great features to keep the copy room humidity level where it should be!!! Didn't have a spot for drainage but the "bucket" is so easy to access and empty that a drain didn't matter! This machine works beautifully! Soooo happy to have it! It worked so well, I bought one for my house!!!

Work Horse of a Dehumidifier
We bought this Frigidaire when our old one died and would no longer turn on. I read reviews and decided to go with this one. We are so happy we did! It pulls the humidity out of the air and the house feels great; no longer damp when we have this really humid weather and rain.
I love the feature that indicates that the filter needs cleaning; with pets it seems to need it more often. It is easy to operate and the noise level is not bothersome.
This is the best product we have ever purchased to reduce the humidity. Have recommended it to others as we are delighted with our purchase. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Plug it in and let it do it's thing!
I got this for my VERY damp basement, we had heavy rains in Minnesota and it was causing dampness on floors and mildew all up my walls. Within a very short time and many times emptying the unit, I had bone dry floors and after scrubbing the walls, they remained mildew free.
Now I empty it when I get up in the morning and again after work. It is a quiet machine that is easy to empty and maintain. I would recommend this to everyone!
Money well spent! Thank You Frigidare!

Best dehumidifier I've had in years!
After reading a lot of reviews, I decided on this one. The last one was a GE that never really worked all that great and lasted a little over one year...so the warranty had expired. I have a large basement, I installed this on 7-9-15 in the afternoon and by 7-10-15 at 5:00pm the humidity was down to 47%. It is working great! I did by an extended warranty on this one since the last 2 dehumidifiers "died" shortly after the
warranty expired. I have great expectations for this one. It's been not quite 2 months and it's still working great! If it fails, I'll update my review since I've learned from other people's reviews, they are very helpful!

Bought this the other day to help fight moisture in our basement. It has work exceptionally well so far. We have had it for about 3 weeks but noticed a difference within 48 hours. Easy to operate and seems to be a work horse. We have had it on high since we bought it. Not very loud as compared to other dehumidifiers we have owned but it certainly isn't a "silent operator". Its about what you would expect for this type of equipment. It needs to be emptied about 4 times a day but that is also to be expected; if it actually had a 70 pint tank then it would be almost impossible to empty by hand. A very good machine and definitely recommended.

I bought this dehumidify about a month ago to replace my aged one. Within an hour you could feel the difference in the room. We have it connected to a pump so it can continuously operate. The room is very comfortable & dry. We did use the tank on two occasions. The tank filled within several hours. My only two criticisms of the appliance is the tank & drain house outlet which is why I only gave a 4 out of 5 stars. The tank is difficult to empty due to the designer. I also learned to place a towel under the drain outlet due the water that will pour out when you unscrew the cap to attach the drain house. Otherwise, I love this dehumidifier.
