Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Water Bucket Capacity

Calvin M 9/18/2021

Does anyone know or has anyone seen anywhere what the capacity of the bucket is? Just received the unit & it appears to work well. It brags on being able to remove 50 pints of water per day. But nowhere can I find the capacity of the bucket. Gave 4 stars since I've only had the unit for 3 days.

Every feature I wanted

Purchaser 12 9/18/2021

Ordered on Wednesday; arrived on Thursday. So easy to set up and register. So quiet. Rolls around easily. Perfect size. Looks great. Hose (separate order) screwed on easily--within a few minutes water was dripping into our sump pump. All of the dehumidifier reviews I read indicated that Frigidaire makes the best. So far, I believe them!

Runs great until warranty expires

actumike 9/18/2021

Unit operated flawlessly for 13 months. Kept humidity in finished basement under control. Removed odors.After 13 months (and warranty expired), unit started frosting up on coils indicating a leak in refrigerant. I could find no authorized repair shop online for Frigidaire. Nice clean unit for the trash heap. Buy extended warranty!!

Pretty Quiet

Wos50 9/17/2021

Pretty Quiet. Screen easier to clean and water bucket easier to remove and empty than others. Casters make it easy to roll. DONT LIKE the FULL bucket indicator. TOO DIFFICULT TO SEE through its window, and full light on top of unit very small to see from across the room. You have to practically stand over the top to see it. I Hope this one lasts longer than the others I™€™ve purchased over the years. This is the 3rd unit in 5 years. Made in CHINA and the internals are made of cheap rust prone metals. Mine used summers only™€¦. They all lost the FREON at some point when started up the next spring. Word to wise on FRIGIDAIRE OWNERS™€¦when you receive the invitation for the extended warranty™€¦™€¦DO IT IMMEDIATELY. There is an explanation date and once that passes, you can™€™t apply nor get through to any person via the phone number listed. Sat for 32 min listening to a flute repeat the same song every 45 seconds. Finally hung up. ™€¦™€¦

Satisfied purchaser 9/16/2021

Had a Sears Kenmore which recently died after years of great performance. This model was highly rated and performs better than I expected. Difficult to find this model after a few weeks of heavy rains and I see why. Quieter and more air flow than the old unit, even though it is set on low setting. Removes lots of water and keeps basement feeling dry. I would definitely recommend.

Very efficient. Quiet compared to other brands.

Diane Y 9/16/2021

Brings down humidity very quickly and is much quieter vs other brands of dehumidifiers I've had before. I like that the filter is easily accessible on the back (vs older products that have the filter inside the unit). I will likely buy another one for a different room so I definitely recommend this model.

"DE Humidifier" of My Dreams!

joyz 9/15/2021

In this unusually wet summer when my 1970's dehumidifier literally 'screeched to a halt', I researched dehumidifiers and decided that this one was the very best choice. I was not mistaken.I used it upstairs in my house to 'wring out' some of the sticky humidity and it amazingly filled up in 6 hours! After 4 days upstairs, the musty smell was gone, and I placed it in the basement where it happily resides and is efficiently draining into the sump pump pit. Since my purchase, I have personally recommended it to two others who were looking for a dehumidifier. I'm sure they will be as satisfied as I am. As an artist, a child of the 50's, and an admirer of designs from that era, I have to admit liking the style of it. It reminds me of those wonderful Frigidaire Refrigerators that you could either hug because they were so cute... or dance a rumba in the kitchen to the beat of their compressors. You will dance with happiness at the efficiency of this one. Tis' is a dream of a machine... get one & love it!

Doesn't last

Tom2468 9/15/2021

I bought this just over a year ago, to replace an earlier version of the same humidifier that had failed a year before (under warranty, fortunately). Now, this one has failed as well. A couple of weeks ago, I got error message "EC". Yesterday, it froze solid from the coil through the rear filter (see picture). And it now appears as though the warranty for the dehumidifier has been reduced to 1 year (had previously had as much as 5 years on the sealed refrigeration parts). But I've been unable to confirm that with Frigidaire. Wait times by phone are stated to be longer than 45 minutes, so I tried Twitter. But they never respond. This is definitely the last Frigidaire dehumidifier I'll purchase. No wonder they seem to have eliminated the five year warranty on the sealed refrigeration components. They don't last that long.

Dehumidifier

VeryWet2Dry 9/15/2021

I bought two Frigidaire units for my basement. They are to new to give much of a review but there are a couple of positive issues I can report. First, they are very user friendly. I had them in full operation within 15 mins once out of the box. Second they really suck the moisture from the air. The only other issue will be longevity and only time will tell. But so far so good.

Immediate difference, does the job

humidityman 9/14/2021

Haven't had this for very long but it does a tremendous job of keeping the humidity at a reasonable level in the damp basement of a 90+ year old home in the humid Midwest. I did a lot of research before buying this dehumidifier and most of what I found said that it was one of--if not the-best. So far I'd agree. Very pleased.

Disappointed

Middie1966 9/14/2021

While I appreciate Frigidaire replacing my 70 pint Dehumidifier, I was disappointed in they chose to replace it with a 50 pint dehumidifier. The quality is much less then the item it replaced. The container, when full, will always spill because there is very little extra space above the water. Instead of a light indicating the pan is full, it was replaced with a plastic red tube that is very difficult to see unless you get on your hands and knees to look into the clear opening. It seems to run all the time. Once it hits the designated humidity level, it shuts off but starts again in a few minutes. I'm sure the humidity has not increased in a few minutes. Does it work, yes. Does it work as good as the item they replaced, no.

Working Well - Agree with others with respect to a few things noted....

methuenma 9/14/2021

All well - removes lots of moisture in the basement. The water container requires a sink to be emptied into as water flows from both sides when being emptied. I think this unit and others now, have similar issues - if one were to try to empty it into a small bucket, water won't go it ends up being messy and missing the bucket.... Also have noted that I have it set at 50% - it rarely shuts off and was concerned that the though it might not be drawing water from the air, that the fan would continue to run, but I have seen it shut off completely which is a plus - just doesn't do it often so guessing that there is still humidity down there for the % I have it set for.

Great capacity for pulling moisture from the air

tsei 9/13/2021

I bought this and put in the basement of my new built house. It has been pulling the full 50 pints every day to day and a half as the cement cures out fulling and the moisture is pulled out of the framing. Really does a great job

Bucket Removal Tricky

Come On Man 9/13/2021

Appears to pull water well and fills the bucket to the very top. Removing bucket to empty is tricky in that; you must pull it forward to the point where it wants to "fall" out before it comes free for removal some times spilling some contents. Capturing the handle to carry requires some hand dexterity. The stream of water comes from multiple points when emptying into the sump pump well again sometimes spilling on the surrounding floor. Returning the bucket to the unit requires some hand dexterity. My previous "Frig 70" unit was much more user friendly in this regard. My parents are older and have the same unit. I can see them having difficulty bending over the coax the bucket in and out without spilling.

Powerful dehumidifier.

Susan86 9/13/2021

Needed to remove some humidity from my house. Before investing in a whole house dehumidifier - I wanted to try a less expensive alternative. After reading reviews I settled on the fridgdaire model. It works great. Easy to use right out of the box. Dropped my humidity by 15%. Only reason for 4 stars is its a bit loud when running. Pretty sure that™€™s normal for them but it would be nice to have them run quieter.

I have been researching dehumidifiers for quite a while and I finally decided on Frigidaire. This dehumidifier has amazed me with great efficiency and the ability to collect, so quickly, huge amounts of moisture from the air in my house. I live in the deep south and my house is on pilings plus humidity is a given down here. I made the best decision purchasing from Frigidaire. The proof is in the collection bucket!!!

It does what I wanted it to

Bucket Man 9/12/2021

I use 2 dehumidifiers in my basement. I bought the Frigidaire dehumidifier to replace a DiLonghi dehumidifier that was recalled. I chose Frigidaire because my remaining old dehumidifier is a Frigidaire. I would have purchased a companion to the older Frigidaire model, but it has been discontinued. The new Frigidaire is an improvement inasmuch as it removes more moisture quicker. It is less user friendly in that it is built for continuous use draining but not for manual emptying. The "bucket" is ill designed for hand manipulation. 1st, it is less sturdy than the other Frigidaire's bucket. 2nd, it is more difficult to hold and maneuver. 3rd, and most annoying, it is almost impossible to empty into a sink or toilet without spills or drips; there is no efficient outflow path! Thus, I rate the design -- in terms of sturdiness, ease of handling to empty, and efficiency of water flow in emptying -- as mediocre. I'll get more proficient at emptying and am already pleased with dehumidifying proficiency. I'd buy it again to use manually so long as my physical condition is good. I would not buy it again if I had difficulty maneuvering a water-filled, ill-designed bucket.

I've been running this for over two months and it works nicely. Pulls a lot of moisture out of the air. I couldn't get the drain feature to work. I attached a hose but it didn't drain continuously and eventually filled to the float and shut off. So I'm still manually draining it for now.
