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.

HIGH humidity killer

drydrunk 10/16/2020

Had this for two weeks and it took care of moist and mold trying to take overin home. Temp didn't matter, humidity had to be lowered from 75% regardless ofoutdoors.THIS unit really takes in some water and gets humidity down in a hurry.NO problems at all with function, lack of water spills and easy to empty!Only makes lot of noise on high but now low is all that's needed for 2200 sqftset at 50%. Med may be needed sometimes in summer but it's not to noisey either!Rated no. 1 for these units and so far it's great.

One month in and it has completely solved our high humidity and mold problems in the basement. We have an extremely high water table so our basement is always damp, moldy and cold. Your product has completely changed everything and maintains a constant 45% humidity level.

Frigidaire replaced our original 3yo dehumidifier due to parts failure for free. New and hopefully improved dehumidifier is working well. Fingers crossed we get a lot of years out of the new dehumidifier.

Lasted 5 months before it stopped working -June-Oct 2020

JoeCBent17 10/16/2020

I received model #FFAD5033W1 50 pint as a warranty replacement for a 70 pint model # FFAD7033R1A. The 70 pint dehumidifier gave the FO error code and broke after 3 years. The 50 pint started forming huge blocks of ice instead of dehumidifying. Be aware that warranty replacement units will have less capacity to remove moisture. I™€™m currently waiting to have the 50 pint replacement unit replaced under warranty.

Upgraded over prior version

Steve45 10/15/2020

It does pull a lot of water out of the air. Enhancements make this unit better than its predecessor. The tank is larger and now has a gage to show how full it is - but when full it is hard to avoid a small spill. The tank is easier to take apart and clean. The hose connection for continuous draining is much more convenient and easier to use. The one negative is that the location of the fan is such that you could drop something through the vent and easily break it.

Don P47 10/14/2020

The one I™€™m now using is a replacement, the originally purchased dehumidifier failed due to freezing up right at the end of its warranty. Because I purchased a Square Deal Warranty, Frigidare replaced the defective unit. It should be noted that the original dehumidifier was a 70 pt/day unit,...the replacement was a 50 pt/day.

I bought this about a month ago. It is extremely quiet and does a fantastic job of extracting moisture from my damp basement space without heating up the basement. Our last dehumidifier extracted moisture just fine, but it made the basement warm. We are very happy with this new dehumidifier.

the mighty moisture remover!

edavidt 10/13/2020

I bought this dehumidifier for a 1500 square foot basement. For the first two weeks, it ran non stop bringing the humidity down from 75% to 55%. Currently keeping everything under control. Hoping that I can get a few years out of it. The alternative would have been to purchase a $2000 industrial dehumidifier. But the mighty Fridgidaire seems to be making a might effort and doing a great job.

Great Purchase

inisfree19 10/13/2020

We bought this dehumidifier a few months ago and it's been a fantastic purchase! We renovated our 3rd floor attic and we needed a really good dehumidifier to suck all the moisture out of the room. This product has proven to be everything Frigidaire advertised it to be! It's quiet, efficient, easy to operate, and just does a fantastic job. The water bucket is easy to remove and the automatic shut off when the bucket is full is a great feature. Most importantly, it does the job efficiently, so we don't have to worry about the newly installed hardwood floors wobbling from too much moisture. We just set the dehumidifier at the desired humidity level and let it do the work. I would highly recommend this product for anyone needing a dehumidifier for a medium sized room. It's well worth the price and definitely decreases your stress levels, by simply working great!

Compressor jolts unit when engaging and disengaging

IntrepidSon 10/12/2020

Had this a couple of weeks. Worked great first week but has now started jolting the unit when the compressor kicks on/off. The jolts are hard enough that it startles me each time and worries me something isn't right with it. Overall these are workhorses and do a fantastic job of extracting moisture. The quality of the exterior has been cheapened from the previous equivalent model i purchased.

carseyj 10/11/2020

This machine works as advertised. It dried up my basement within 5 days of install and my floorboards are just a little creakier now that the moisture has been sucked out of them haha! But it also significantly cut down on the odor in the basement, so I™€™m happy with it. The only slight downside I™€™m seen is that it tends to run longer than advertised if I set it lower than 50%.

Surprisingly Quiet

rhpd 10/11/2020

Does a nice job in our finished basement. Once the desired humidity percentage is set, no idea what the digital read-out is telling me. Our unit is set at 50. Read-out is displaying 55, and a separate hygrometer (approximately 6 feet away) is reading 46. So, we just go by the "feel" of the air. My request for change would be to modify the water bucket. It is a pain to remove and even more difficult to replace after emptying. Must be ever so careful to perfectly align the empty bucket into the dehumidifier as far as you can, then ram it into place, hoping you don't break any of the plastic edges. In fairness, another brand suffered with the similar awkward design.

Dianne R 10/11/2020

We bought the unit ago to replace a more expensive dehumidifier that stopped working. We have had 4-5 different dehumidifiers over the years to keep the dampness out of our 1,500 square foot basement that has 2 bedrooms, a full bath, storage and a large exercise area. By far, the Frigidaire maintains a comfortable humidity with more efficiency and much less noise than any other units we have had. We recommend this product.

It is quiet and does a great job of removing moisture from our basement. I really like it except this is my third one in 3 and a half years. Unfortunately, my first one quit working after 1 year and my second after having it for 2 years. Fortunately, Frigidaire has a 5 year warranty on it and bought the first one back from me and sent a replacement for the second one.

Quiet and mobile

EAGLES4133 10/8/2020

I have been using the dehumidifier for about a month now and have no complaints. The thing I notice the most from my previous unit is that it is way quieter and mobile. Mobile meaning it weighs less and the wheels are better set up to roll on carpet. I rotate using it in a finished basement and a storage area and can easily move it compared to the old one.
