Q:Dehumidifier keeps staying at 90 humidity but is pulling water through the drain hose. Any ideas of what is going on? Right before the coil was iced over. Cleaned the filter it was dirty.

Answer This Question

A:  Hello, displaynotright! Thank you for reaching out to us. Relocate the unit and area with the correct temperature range of 41°F and 89°F. Also, try turning off the dehumidifier, unplugging it from the power source, and waiting for a few minutes before plugging it back in. This can sometimes reset the electronics and resolve minor issues. If the issue still persists, please contact us at 1-800-374-4432. Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. EST, we'll be happy to assist. ~Sam

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello, GuyA! Thank you for your question. Many of our parts for products are designed by our engineers in the United States. Many of those parts are manufactured in the U.S. while other parts are made globally to our specifications. Most of the parts that are available to purchase are the same parts that are used in the appliances during the manufacturing process. Parts suppliers can and do change from time to time because we continue to seek the most efficient suppliers to produce quality parts. It is important to us that our parts are well-made and meet our specifications. We hope this information was helpful to you and your shopping experience. ~Sam

      as other reviews have mentioned, this dehumidifier creates a giant ice cube at the bottom of the air inlet, then stops working, & displays the dreaded "EC" trouble code (the sealed system, & condenser is defective and the unit is not repairable.). I average 10 or so years with "other" brands of dehumidifiers, this Frigidaire unit barely lasted over a year; I should have read reviews prior to purchase, I'll be steering clear of this brand in the future
        If it lasts one year you are lucky.
        They just lowered their warranty to one year for the whole unit. Obviously because they have had so many warranty claims. I have had 6 or more of these since 2015. They would send me replacements but now they will not even answer the phones when I call. These are throw away units. I contacted the Attorney General's office in North Carolina and they would not even help me. All of mine have put out codes and iced up. I had an Oasis dehumidifier once and it lasted 25 years (made in USA).

          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Does what it’s supposed to do!! Appreciate the 78” electrical cord as my outlet isn’t at baseboard level. So far very satisfied with it.
            Working Great in my Basement - lots of capacity
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased the Frigidaire for use in my basement a month ago. A big factor in choosing Frigidaire was its 50-pint capacity combined with a large tank for holding water. Many of the 50-pint options have ridiculously small water tanks and I do not have the option to run it into a drain. So it's manual emptying for me. This dehumidifier does well at keeping the humidity in check and with the bigger water tank, I can keep ahead of emptying it.
              Piece of JUNK Dehumidifier
              This is my third FFAD5033W1 Frigidaire dehumidifier that I have owned in 5 years.First one failed after 3 months with Ice buildup .First Replacement failed after 1.5 years,Second replacement failed after 4 month with EC code. Customer Service will not replace the last unit which should have been protected by one year warranty as if I bought a new unit. The original unit had 5 year warranty.Customer Service makes promises on this website but in realty are not helpful .Most likely will never buy a Frigidaire ,Electrolux product .

                Two strikes and you’re out
                Terrible. I’ve had two of these ice up after a year of service. First one replaced. Second one nope. Poor quality unit.

                  Build one that lasts
                  Bought this unit just over a year ago based on reviews and with the hope that it would last and now the compressor no longer runs, just the fan. The whole purpose of a dehumidifier is to pull the moisture from the air and when they do not last it’s money wasted. To have a unit last just over a year is ridiculous. I need a unit to last!

                    Nice dehumidifier; we like it.
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Excellent dehumidification. Quiet and effective. Just one distress - when the bucket is full, it is FULL and somewhat difficult to extract, carry, and empty without sloshing water about. I just make sure that it doesn't get that full; and if it does, I pull it out and carry it carefully.
                      Dies right after warranty expires
                      Died a little after one year (of course, just after the warranty expires.) Leaked all its coolant and is irreparable. Our 45-year old dehumidifier is working great, but I'm seeing hundreds of reviews on this model that it dies just after one year. Appears as if this was planned.

                        FFAD5034W1 Frigidaire 50 Pint Dehumidifier
                        This dehumidifier works great and certainly keeps our basement dry. It is our second Frigidaire dehumidifier and we’ve been satisfied with both. The only complaint is the high level of water in the water collection tank, which turns off at a very high level and this makes it difficult remove the tank without spilling water.
