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.

Fabulous dehumidifier!

NY mom 11/19/2022

I read about this dehumidifier which was top rated by the New York Times' Wirecutter.I bought it at ABT appliance and have been very pleased. It immediately took away the musty smell in our apartment . It's fairly quiet and easy to empty

Frigidaire Dehumidifier

Pam S 11/19/2022

We were so impressed with our last Frigidaire dehumidifier, one that worked quietly and diligently for 10 years to keep our entire downstairs dry and comfortable, that we didn™€™t hesitate to replace it with a new Frigidaire. And we are just as pleased with our new one. In fact we were so impressed that we have recently bought a Frigidaire refrigerator and air conditioner. Thank you, Frigidaire.

Quietly keeps our basement dry

john000 11/17/2022

I bought this one to replace another frigidaire humidifier that died after 8 years of service. It's nice. The construction of the new one doesn't feel quite as solid or durable as the old one, but that probably doesn't matter much since it's sitting quietly in one corner and not getting moved around. "Quiet" is the key word here ™€“ the compressor in this dehumidifier is *much* quieter than the one in our old unit. I used to have to close the door to the basement to take a phone call, but this new dehumidifer just sounds like a fan running in the background. That's a real improvement.

Should last longer, EC error!

Dasher78 11/17/2022

We purchased this unit from BJ's Wholesale Club in May of 2020. Now it is November 2022 and we get the EC code and the unit does not condense anymore. It sounds like other (older) models had a longer warranty than 1 year on the coils. I call the 800 number at Frigidaire and basically said too bad and no option for replacement, repair or discount on a new unit. Do better Frigidaire.

Excellent when new

Jon Scott 11/17/2022

I have had Three of these units. The first one lasted 18 months, the second only Six months. The third is a warranty replacement and only a week old. They are reasonably quiet and work very well before they fail. These units are not repairable, and Frigidaire is very good about replacing them under the ONE year warranty. If you buy one, buy an extended warranty.

Worked great for 12 months then began to freeze up

Abann22 11/16/2022

Bought this unit on September 21, 2021. Since the beginning of November 2022, it has began to freeze up in our basement. The temperature in the basement is 68°F and well within operating temperatures of this unit. This machine literally worked just passed its warranty and then quit. Nothing like paying $320 for a dehumidifier to only last 13 months.

Pretty Good

Duke001 11/15/2022

It worked great for about a month, then it runs for about an hour and stops. I have to unplug it so it resets, and then it will start up again. Code EC keeps comes up. The booklet says to contact your Authorized Frigidaire Service Center (of which there are none in my area) and it is infuriating that I would have to pay for service on something I just purchased 3 months ago.

2 lemons can't be a coincidence

lemon x2 11/12/2022

I had this model and it stopped working in3 months, I exchanged it for same model and in 4 months is stopped working. It doesn't run constant and my basement isn't a true basement; home built into hillside, so it isnt tremendously dark nor damp. When it works, it worked well. Parents have a 40 year old unit (unknown brand) and it still working :/

Works great. Just not long enough

actumike 11/11/2022

My second 50 pint dehumidifier just failed after 13 months. I had the exact model fail in a similar time frame. I thought it might just be a lemon. Now I am thinking the model is just manufactured poorly. What else could cause a real workhorse of a dehumidifier to perform perfectly until just after the warranty expired and then fail. Works great until it does not.

this can really dry out a basement. low noise and energy efficient. i have to admit i do have a Radon fan over the sump pump too. had it a couple of years. when it's real humid you may have to empty 3 times a day or it will shut off on you. truly enjoy the low humidity.

Failed after barely 2 years

DampBasementNow 11/4/2022

This product completely failed with the "EC Code" making it "not repairable," through absolutely normal usage. The customer service rep answering the customer chat line, said "go buy another on our website." Perhaps this company should build better products that actually work under normal operation.

It works just like it is suppose to.

JBtheblonde 11/3/2022

This is my 2nd Frigidaire dehumidifier. The last one (70 pint), worked for 4 1/2 years. I have had this 50 pint for a month now and it is performing as it should. It seems a little quieter, it rolls easily. The water reservoir seems a little thinner plastic than the old one, so it feels a little flimsy when sliding it out to empty. Be careful when walking to the sink to empty the reservoir because this one gets real full, which makes it hard to empty without splashing water everywhere. I haven™€™t used the drain plug yet, but I will at some point. It seems to be very functional. Keep the hose in a downward trajectory toward the drain to keep the reservoir from filling up and quitting if you don™€™t mean for it to do that. (Speaking from experience.) I have it plugged into a Smart plug, so I can turn it off when gone if needed. If the power goes out, this will come back on automatically. That is a very important feature. I like my humidity level around 50%. There is no problem achieving that in this small house of 1000 sq ft. We are on the Gulf Coast, so most times we™€™re pushing 85% humidity outside. I prefer to keep the fan on low to keep the noise level down. I would purchase this again if needed. All of my appliances are Frigidaire and am very satisfied with their performance and longevity.

Error code EC after 1 year

EC blues 11/3/2022

Research before purchasing Frigidaire dehumidifier model FFAD5033W1 ( I assume other models as well). After1 year (almost to the day) an error code of "EC" appears. Apparently this is a known manufacturers defect that cannot be repaired and they refuse to honor warranty 2 weeks over warranty period. This is not acceptable with an ongoing known defect. Online chat and phone customer service would not allow me to speak to anyone that can possibly help. They suggested I buy another unit. I typically do not write negative reviews of anything I purchase but this rubbed me the wrong way.

Chose this dehumidifier based on reviews, size, and price. Not disappointed. If works great. Everything I need. Only thing I do wish, is that the fan would shut off when it isn't running as a dehumidifier. But nonetheless it works great.

Mikea118 11/1/2022

I purchased this on October 1, 2021. It stopped working on October 7, 2022. I get an EC code and have tried everything advised to correct it. I took good care of the device and cleaned the filter regularly. However, after just 1 year, I am unable to use this product and have been offered no support on replacement options or how to repair the device myself. There isn't a service manual available so it is not possible to attempt self-repair.

Unsatisfied4sure 11/1/2022

I purchased the 50 pint dehumidifier on 9/2/2022. The item came up with and EC error on 10/25/2022/ I unplugged the device and let it set for a few minutes, plugged it back in and it was good....for another day before the EC error returned. I called customer service only to be put in the queue for the "next available representative" 45 minutes later the call automatically disconnected. I went through this two more times today of 45 minute wait sessions only to be disconnected! Both equally bad!

Longest lasting dehumidifier I've every found: so I bought another when I wore out the first one

dtindall 11/1/2022

I've had dehumidifiers keeping my basement dry for decades now.After trying multiple brands that wore out in a hurry, I finally found a frigidaire.It held up like a champ for 5 full years. (The longest lasting brand of all the others combined)So when it finally wore out I bought another one. (A no-brainer) The new one is running like a champ. Looking forward to the next 5 years.

Works, mostly

Marijus52 10/31/2022

This is a replacement for an approximately 5-month old unit that started, and continued, to frost over, resulting in no dehumidification. To their credit, it was replaced at no cost, under warranty. Perhaps not surprisingly, there was no consideration of repair, which is unfortunate, as a near-new unit will be scrapped, with the owner having to figure out how to dispose of a regulated refrigerant-containing unit (can™€™t just put it out for rubbish collection). Fortunately, our community has a disposal program for such items; unfortunately, we will have to transport it to the facility, about 30 minutes away.Now, the replacement unit is also having the same issue, although it will function properly for several days after being shut off, disconnected from power to reset, and left off for a day. And when it frosts over, it™€™s a thick coating, covering the whole of the condensation fins (see photo). If it comes to the point that it continuously frosts over, like the prior unit, we will replace it with another brand rather than having to continue disposing of near-new units. (By the way, the temperature in the room is never less than 68, it frosts over even with the fan set at high, and when the humidity is down to 50%.)

Frigidaire Dehumidifier

Tim72 10/31/2022

This is the second Frigidare Dehumidifier I have purchased. The first one was a 70 pint and works excellent. I purchased this 50 pint to use in my detached garage. Both of these dehumidifiers are well designed, remove a lot of humidity and are easy to use and maintain.

Same EC code as everyone else

Connors84 10/28/2022

I bought this only in August 2021 and it stopped working by August 2022. Getting the same EC code that many others online / troubleshooting forums have. Called and the customer service rep told me the system was down and to check ™€œthat afternoon™€ to see if it was back. Well, that was 3 days ago. And from what I can tell from other complaints, it™€™s been a lot longer than that. So very curious if it will ever be up and if they plan to help all these people who have a clearly defective product. Too many for it to be coincidence at this point. It worked great when it worked! Customer service - what is going on?

Not Made Like They Used To Be!

USMCgreg 10/27/2022

I had a Frigidaire dehumidifier for 15 years that ran 24/7 before it finally went. I bought this 50 pint model the last week of October, 2022 and it is now not working, showing an EC error code. I have checked the outlet and the room temperature is well in the middle of guidelines. Why an expensive product lasts less than 2 years is beyond me. Appliance companies have gone down hill over the years. Planned obsolescence seems to be the order of the day as repairing them is very expensive.

They know this item is a lemon and don't care. supposedly their system is down she couldnt look up my registration.English was a struggle for her.

High Humidity Frigidaire Dehumidifier - awesome

Hotzie 10/25/2022

We bought the High capacity Frigidaire dehumidifier for our church auditorium (smallish for a church) a few months ago, and we all love it. It makes the air so much more comfortable, protects books etc when the AC is not on, and it's QUIET! Also it's nice looking and drains the water to the outside, so pretty much no maintenance. Love it.

Making my basement tolerable

leigh23 10/23/2022

I have an unfinished basement that gets really damp based on the season and rain. I had a smaller capacity unit that seemed to do an ok job, but then it gave up the ghost so I thought I'd go bigger, After reading reviews, I selected this model and I couldn't be happier. It was a breeze to set up, worked as promised, and is quiet. I do recommend attaching a hose for continuous drainage if possible.

Excellent dehumidifying, removing condensate not the best

You need little hand 10/21/2022

We enjoy having a low humidity laundry & basement (keeps the washer & dryer happy). This dehumidifier does the trick - and our basement is very large! It also is very sleek looking - which probably is why the the handles are almost non-existent.The only issues are that the tub that catches the condensed water has barely any handle indent for trying to slide it out without spilling water & the filter has to be taken out & put in blind because it's location & small "handle."
