Hello Curry! Thank you for your inquiry! When operation of the dehumidifier is being controlled by the humidistat (humidity sensor) the compressor stops operating when the programmed level of relative humidity is achieved. In order to sense any increase in relative humidity, and restart the compressor accordingly, the air must be sampled. To obtain the air sample the fan must operate to draw air into the unit. This is achieved by having the fan run continuously. We do hope this information is beneficial. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us directly or by resubmitting a question on this Q&A website. -Kind Regards- Read Less

I wish to stay away from models that the fan runs 24/7/365. Fan needs to shut off when not doing it's job.
And does the 50 pint model work the same way?
The user manual does not provide an answer to this.

30-Pint Dehumidifier is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 166.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Efficient Very efficient, quiet, does a good job in keeping the air fresh and dry in my basement. Set-up, just plug it in and you are ready to go -

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well for my 500sf basement On the most humid New Jersey days this humidifier was able to get my 500sf basement down to 50% (from 85%) in just a few hours. Then it cycles on and off at reasonable intervals. I've been keeping it at 60% recently to save on energy costs and basement air feels just dry enough. My prior unit of a different brand was oversized and cycled every few minutes. I assume that's why it lasted only one summer. The fan on this unit is reasonably quiet...you will hear it even on low but it's not bothersome whatsoever. I connected the dehumidifier to a hose draining to sump pit. Make sure entire hose is always lower than attachment point or you will just start filling the onboard bucket. The bucket is small and will fill in less than one day and trigger the unit to stop until emptied. I highly recommend draining to sump pit, drain, or utility sink or you will constantly be emptying the bucket. Still happy at 6 weeks of use. I hope to get a few years out of it and purchased the extended warranty to guarantee that. My unit came with a plastic extender so that you can connect the hose from the outside rather than reaching into the bucket area. This piece leaked at the connector so keep an eye on it if you use it. It's easy enough to connect the hose from inside the bucket area if you don't want to risk it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for bathroom or bedroom Nice and quiet little unit. The wheels on the unit make it easy to move from room to room. The catch basin for the water is only 30 pints,which is relatively small. I have it in a 10x12 bathroom and have to empty it 3-4 times during the day. The flashing light tells you when it's full, which is convenient. It does have a drain plug that you put on and let it run into a drain. This unit is for a small area, I wouldn't use it for a basement or any room that is larger than a 12x14.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice unit I bought this at the beginning of summer and boy has it take water out of the air! It's still very humid here, so it's still running. It's pretty quiet as far as these machines go too. The one thing I haven't really seen anyone say anything about is that it, as do all dehumidifiers that work the way this one does, generate a *lot* of warm air - so the room that its in is a fair bit warmer than the rest of the house. It's not a deal breaker by any means, but I thought it should be mentioned. I like that it's on wheels, since it is a substantial unit-its very easy to move around. I hope it keeps functioning this well for many years to come - time will tell. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quit working in less than a month The dehumidifier worked for less than a month and then quit running and showed an F0 code. I tried it in every room and at many different outlets and it would always run for a few minutes and then stop and show the F0 code. We called and were told that we would be given a refund. We are still waiting for that to happen. We sent them the required documentation. That was a month ago. Maybe we will get a refund or maybe we will not. Only time will tell. We bought a GE and it works flawlessly! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well for my apartment I moved to NC during the summer and was not prepared for the high humidity. I bought this dehumidifier for my apartment and it significantly improved the comfort of my new home. I set it to 50% humidity and let it run on low. The water collector usually needs to be emptied once every 36-48hrs when the humidity is high outside, and about once every 3 days now that the season has changed. Highly recommend. The noise level is about the same as any fan so it never bothers me. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased as a replacement, working fine. My 22 month old Frigidaire dehumidifier, a similar model refrigerant unit failed. Still under 24 month warranty I was pleased to find Frigidaire stood behind their product. Instead of repair or sending a replacement was sent forms to fill out and return with copy of original purchase receipt. Refund received! In interim I purchased this Frigidaire model as a replacement. It works just fine, maybe a little quieter. Know Frigidaire stands behind its product so no reason to purchase a different brand.

I live in a 38 foot motor home full time and I needed something to remove the moisture. I found this unit and it works perfectly! No more drippy wet windows in the morning or fogged windows while cooking. The size does not interfere with the living space of the motor home and the quiet operation lets me sleep like a baby. This is a great investment for saving the interior of my RV from excess moisture and the possibility of mold.
