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.

Not deep pockets 2/20/2024

It works well for almost 3 years then quits. This is my experience with three of these as well as other brands. Apparently corporate engineers are happy to fill landfills rather than design a lasting portable dehumidifier.

Drain leveling

Efficiently removes basement humidity, but initial drainage setup posed a challenge. Despite water filling the tank, it didn't drain through the hose. After troubleshooting and adjusting attachments, likely due to a leveling issue, it now works flawlessly. While setup took extra eff

Replaced old Frigidaire unit

JT45 2/7/2024

Just replaced my old unit which only lasted 2 years. Since the heat comes on so much do to the weather, unit doesn't come on a lot. However, when it does it is pretty quiet. Love the control panel on top. It is a nice looking unit. I am hopeful it will work as good as the old unit, but last longer.

Working Great in my Basement - lots of capacity

TerriLLBean 1/25/2024

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.

it is difficult to write a review as I just installed it 5 days ago. It was easy to set up as continuous drain, instructions are easy. It has not needed to run (automatic turn on) since there is very little humidity at this time.

I had a Frigidaire dehumidifier for many many years. Finally it broke down. When I went online to buy another one, I bought another brand and I™€™ll say it what a piece of crap. I took it back to Lowe™€™s, and purchased online at Frigidaire, like I should have done in the first place. This dehumidifier that I have is a workhorse. From this point on the Frigidaire manufacturing is the appliance of choice in my house. Thank you.

bj171 1/13/2024

Purchased after our 10+- year old 30 pt one quit. This one has been in operation for several days in the cellar after heavy rains and is doing the job very well (set at 50% humidity). We are pleasantly surprised at how much quieter it is than the old one. Would definitely recommend this unit.

Three Similar Failures

Richard1425 1/8/2024

My original unit soon failed, displaying an EC code. Frigidaire replaced it as unrepairable. I now have two more extended-warranty replacements which both soon failed in the same manner. I was promised a fourth unit 6 weeks or more ago that has not yet arrived.

Exuss 1/6/2024

My first Frigidaire dehumidifier was a similar model and lasted about 4 years. It died when my cellar flooded and burned it out. It worked great. This new model seems to be working just fine and really dries out the cellar. - which is actually a bomb shelter. The humidity stays at 40% while it is 80% outside. Definitely worth the money.

This is our 2nd Frigidaire dehumidifier. The first one quit working after less than one year. The second one, a replacement, has quit working properly after only a few months.

Would never buy another Frigidaire dehumidifier.

The Bob 12/9/2023

The first unit I purchased lasted barely 11 months. The coils repeatedly froze and the unit would no longer remove humidity from the air. I contacted customer service who wanted me to perform a number of tests which took over one week. At the conclusion of the one week, and getting close to the end of the one-year warranty period, Customer Service replaced my unit. Interestingly, the replacement unit was manufactured the same month (12/2021) as the unit it replaced. The new unit failed within three months with the same symptoms as the original unit. I contacted customer service again and they are insistent that I provide a receipt of purchase (which I do not have because the unit was replaced under warranty). Anyway, I purchased a much higher quality unit from another brand and which was much less expensive.

pkf914 11/1/2023

1 week after our 1 year "warranity" expired the EC code appeared on our dehumidifier.. Contacted customer service and was told there was nothing they could do, or were willing to do. spoke to a supervisor and was told the same thing, 1 day or 1 week, did not matter. the key to superior customer service is to know when to know when "rules" should be adapted/modified, after all we are talking about 1 week. w

Machine broke in less than a year and the process to get a replacement has been unacceptably slow

Gordonj818ten 10/31/2023

After 10 months our dehumidifier broke. When I reached out to get it replaced (as it is still under warranty) I was told we were eligible for a replacement. This was a month ago and we are still without our replacement. No one explained how long this would take and only today did someone apologize for how long it™€™s taken. We™€™ve had radio silence from the company and I™€™ve had to reach out multiple times only to hear that our replacement was delayed. Why can™€™t they just give us a voucher for a new machine? I am very unsatisfied with the whole experience and think you should consider a different system if you don™€™t want to lose customers. Thank you!

Only one year

keithudson 10/30/2023

I only got one year out of Frigidaire dehumidifier model FFAD5033W1. It it located in my finished basement of my newly built house. I first noticed water leaking from under the unit, after checking it out I could see the coils were froze up. I could not get to the filter or coils until I set it outside to melt the ice. The owners manual said it is too close to the wall or the electric outlet didn't supply enough current. The unit has been plug into the same outlet for a year it was located 2 feet from the wall. I spent 50.00 dollars and 2 month for a repairman to tell me the seal unit is bad and not worth fixing. I contacted the warranty dept. to ask for a warranty claim, but they told me it only had a one year on it. My point is it should last more than just one year for a 300.00 dollar unit or you would think customer service could discount another unit or at least pay the repair shop bill instead of just saying they are sorry. This type of appliances should last 5 to 10 years. I will never by another Frigidaire appliance again and I will have to advice others to do the same

Frigidaire 50 Pint

cjzgo14 10/30/2023

This is our second dehumidifier of this Frigidaire model. So I am rating the performance and longevity of the 50 pint model. The unit does a good job of removing moisture from the basement of our home both on continuous and humidity level settings. However the first one lasted just days beyond the warranty before it showed error codes and stopped working. Frigidaire customer service gave us repair center references which were dead ends in terms of getting the unit repaired. We asked for some discount on buying a replacement unit but Frigidaire would not reward loyalty in this instance with any financial consideration. By our experience you can plan on a 3 year appliance life or equivalent of $100 per year.

Worked great - until it didn't

Informed consumer 2 10/24/2023

This humidifier worked great in my basement. It is a relatively large space. The dehumidifier kept the room reasonably dry. The hose was easy to connect so I didn't need to use the bucket. It is also relatively quiet. Sadly, there is a 12-month warranty on this machine and after 13 months, 2 weeks, the machine stopped dehumidifying due to the formation of a large block of ice on the rear grill. I tried everything suggested in the owner's manual to no avail. I contacted Frigidaire and was told I did a good job of checking (and eliminating) all the possible problems. They gave me the number of a local repair shop, which I couldn't reach because the number they gave me was not correct. Besides, will it be worth fixing a $300 machine that already failed once? Maybe I have an isolated experience. If not, I'm hoping there will be a recall of this machine. Bottom line - I have generally found dehumidifiers to be undependable. While I keep other appliances for years past their lifespan, I've had bad luck with humidifiers. The Frigidaire truly worked great - until it suddenly had an early demise.
