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.

Our 70 pint Frigidaire dehumidifier refused to turn on by the end of the summer. We had been happy with that so we looked for a Frigidaire replacement. We saw this 50-pint capacity and went with the size space it said would be dehumidified. This was incorrect - the unit runs constantly and the space (cellar) still smells musty. Can't wait for our electric bill.

Dehumidifier

ChrisZ 9/16/2022

I purchased this dehumidifier after our previous one, from a different manufacturer, died after 3 years of use. I am very happy with this replacement from Frigidaire. It is quieter and the hook up for continuous drainage is much easier than our previous dehumidifier. I would recommend this dehumidifier to everyone

I bought the 4th dehumidifier in the family because we have found them so reliable and effective for our old house basement. We use the timer to shut it off during peak electricity cost hours, just wish it could be set for both off and on, not just one or the other.

Worked for ONE Season

Dukeisaac 9/15/2022

I purchased one Frigidaire, Model FFAD5033W1, on August 30, 2021. I liked everything about it and decided to buy a second one a week later. They both worked well for the remainder of 2021 until winter set in. While they were in use, both drained to a sump pump, and I cleaned the filter, and vacuumed the grill as recommended. They were not used again until the next rainy season, around August 2022. I then noticed water pooling on the floor by both units. Further investigation revealed that, on both units, a thick layer of ice had accumulated on the condenser coils behind the filter. I researched for possible causes of the ice buildup and none applied here. It didn't matter what steps I took to try to prevent or minimize it, the coils would always end up with a buildup of ice, sometimes more than 1/2 inch thick. On September 14, 2022, I contacted the Warranty Dept. of Frigidaire and was told that they couldn't help me since both units were 2 weeks past the 1 year warranty period. I tried in vain to convince them that though the units were purchased one year and 2 weeks ago, I started using them within the one year warranty period and both units were only used 4 months total at best. I have owned many Frigidaire products but I would have to think more than twice before I buy another one.

Gil120 9/14/2022

This Frigidaire dehumidifier works exactly as advertised. It is quiet, efficent and has made an incredible difference in the air quality and comfort of our lower level. We have the dehumidifier set at 50% on the low fan setting and it fills the catch bucket on a daily basis. Prior to installation, the lower level of our home had a pungent smell and everything felt damp to the touch, however everything is now dry, comfortable and there is no unpleasant smell in the air. One of things that I love best about this dehiumidifier is how quiet it is. Other brands that we have owned have claimed to be quiet, however they were all so noisy that we could not hear the TV when they were running. We have not experienced that issue with this Frigidaire dehumidifier at all. Thank you for producing a product that actually lives up to the product's description/advertisement.

neat and tidy 9/13/2022

I like the easy pull out screen that can be cleaned periodically. The bucket has a line that shows how full it is. The cord wraps up neatly and the plug has a place to be secured. It is easy to roll to where it is needed.

Not reliable - won't last

jose5 9/12/2022

I've had two of these in the past four years. They don't last. 2018 purchase was replaced under warranty in 2020 and now that one is dead - EC code. Frigidaire changed their warranty though so they no longer cover up to 5 years for the sealed refrigerant system. Only one year. Will not purchase another frigidaire dehumidifier. Junk.

Dehumidifier

Mike90 9/12/2022

The Frigidaire dehumidifier is a great machine and really does a good job of controlling the humidity levels. I have used mine in a 950 and 1500sqft apartments. It provides humidity control for the entire apartment. I use the hose attachment when I go out of town but otherwise empty out the jug 1 sometimes 2 times a day. My only complaint is the plastic laminate over the control module is starting to show a lot of ware already. Not sure if this has been fixed with the updated models but I would still recommend this product.

Berilon 9/12/2022

This dehumidifier did not even last one season. When i called support for a replacement they informed me that the device was 2 weeks out of warranty. I will never purchase any Frigidaire products in the future with that kind of customer support.

Another one bites the dust !

LeeTN22 9/12/2022

Yet another owner of a dead FFAD5033W1 dehumidifer.This one lasted just under 2 years. It did work pretty great up to the point of the dreaded "EC" error code, which occurred right when i noticed a small puddle (of coolant I suspect) on the floor (which also left a mark on my floor !).Several other manufacturers provide a 2 year warranty (or 2.5 year when product is registered) or 3 year warranty, but Frigidaire warranty is only 1 year, obviously proving that they have no faith in the reliability of their own product.

Didn't last 4 months

Karainbow 9/12/2022

Purchased this unit 2 years ago but, never used as a friend lent me a dehumidifier prior to receiving this one. I dint use it till April 2022 for the first time. This was supposed to have automatic shut off when bucket was full. Was gone a few days and bucket full machine was running with ice built up on filter. Unplugged it and let the ice melt off. Plug back in and it ran and after several hours came up with code EC. Unplugged and it ran with no collection of water for several hours and came up this code again. Called manufacturer and was told it was not under warranty even though I never used it till 4 months ago. They gave me 2 different repair places I could chek out and both said it couldn't be fixed as the manufacturer told me it was a internal seal issue and repair places said there is no replacement part for it. So the dehumidifier is worthless a $275.00 investment for 4months doesn't make the machine worth it.

My second unit in 5 years

MA_Upstate 9/11/2022

This is my second unit of Frigidiaire dehumidifiers (50 pint capacity) for my basement. I have used the unit for approx. 1 month now without issues after following first use instructions. So far I am very pleased with it as the humditiy setting on the control panel is identical to my hygrometer measurements, really impressive ! Make sure to clean the filter regularly (the unit will stop with a "Clean Filter" warning every few weeks). A simple cleaning is sufficient and it is back to normal.I gave the unit 4/5 as my previous one, bought in May 2017 was going bad with the infamous "F0" warning earlier this year. Even with all cleanup and maintenance efforts it did not return to normal. Unfortunately it was out of warranty and I could not get a replacement, and I expect/hope this unit to last longer.

WORKS GREAT

flash69 9/11/2022

I am using it in my basement which gets pretty humid during the Summer. Works great. Don't want it running constantly, so dump the bucket once a day. Automatic shutoff works well for this. I've just left it on the factory setting, since the basement will never be down to a low humidity. It's quiet running, so I would not be afraid to run it in the house, if I needed another one for that. The bucket holds more water than my older dehumidifier did . Overall, very happy with it. Anxious to see how it will affect my electric bill !!!!!!!

Does just what it says

SaraEm 9/10/2022

I have a very very old house (built 1864). The cellar for the most part is a dirt floor and it is a very large area and the rooms are split up with granite walls. Before beginning the project of laying down a cement floor, I have to bring the humidity level down to an acceptable level. This unit is just a workhorse. The directions were plain and simple, easy to understand and follow. It did such a great job in one section of the cellar that I went out and bought another one for the other cellar rooms. I am so pleased with these dehumidifiers. Thank you, Frigidaire folks - you aced this big time. :-)

New Frigidaire - High Humidity 50 Pint Capacity Dehumidifier

Amazed at quantity of water removed from air in my basement--many times more than from my old dehumidifier. In just a few hours the big 50-pint container bucket is already full. Would have taken 2-3 days to accumulate that much on my old unit.

Keeps my basement dry

MLG27 9/7/2022

I got this dehumidifier to keep my basement fairly dry and hopefully move that drier air throughout the house. It seems to be doing a good job pulling water out of the air. It™€™s easy to setup and use, and time will tell if it™€™s reliable. The hookup for a hose helps keeping it fairly low maintenance. I™€™m happy with it so far.

Error Code EC

CJCHILDS 9/6/2022

EC stands for complete system failure. My unit runs for three months each year and its only year two. So basically a complete system failure with only 6 months of runtime. Customer service, Ms. Jelly, says its only a one year warranty from date of purchase so it should be thrown away as junk. Terrible response to such a poor quality product.
