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.

Does the job but Noisy Compressor

RM116 1/27/2023

Looks like it does the job maintaining the humidity but very "Noisy Compressor". I had to put anti vibration pads and still can feel the vibrations on the floor when the compressor is on.

Easy to clean washable filter for model FFAD5033W10

Jeptha 1/26/2023

The manual depicts a filter that you remove from the grill. The grill has a screen made to it with additional clips for a filter like the one pictured in the manual. The filter wasn't included in the box. The customer service rep says the permanent screen is the filter.

Solid dehumidifer

cbeck 1/25/2023

Been using this in our apartment for a couple weeks now, it's pretty amazing how much water this thing takes out of the air. Reduced our high humidity room to 35% in a day.

Frigidaire Humidifier

WON'T LAST!!!!!

AngryPete 1/18/2023

This dehumidifier (with 1 year warranty) worked great for exactly 1 year and 1 month from date of purchase. The unit was used about 2 months the first season and 3 months the 2nd season, so a total of 5 months actually running the dehumidifier. The dehumidifier was very effective at removing moisture from my finished basement. However, 13 months after purchase the coils began to freeze up solid due to low refrigerant. I kept the filter squeaky clean and emptied the reservoir daily: this failure is NOT due to operator error. The unit still looks brand new and runs smoothly but freezes up solid. When I inquired at my place of purchase they told me that 1 year is about the best you can expect .... seriously? from a $300 dehumidifier? There's no way to self repair or recharge, and paying an appliance repair shop would cost more than the unit is worth. After much research and reading lots of reviews I haven't been able to find an alternative product or manufacturer of dehumidifiers that are built to last. Very disappointed!DO YOUR RESEARCH! BUYER BEWARE!!!!

Water Collection Tank

Kenneth R Ruge 1/18/2023

This is my second Frigidaire dehumidifier. The first was purchased 12/15/2016 and never has caused a problem. The collection tank on the new model is terrible! When pouring out the water the handle tends to rotate and pop out of place. When this happens the clear plastic lid can pop up and out of place. Then the float can fall forward out of place and the consumer is having to guess how to reposition it.

Micker 1/13/2023

Have had it for a month, so a little early to evaluate. I™€™m watching it. It turns on and appears to be working, but no collection of water as of yet. A little concerned, but it has been cold and dry in the basement.

Worked well for a while, but failed in 18 months.

jtcin 1/13/2023

This is a nice dehumidifier but the sealed refrigeration unit failed in 18 months. The warranty is only for one year. Frigidaire used to offer a 5 year warranty, and they were great about honoring it. This appliance is too expensive to barely last more than a year. I will be buying a different brand with a better warranty in the future.

26 months lifetime

EC123456 1/8/2023

It works really well for the first months. It is not working anymore after only 26 months. Search EC code and Frigidaire on internet! This thing is programmed to fail after few months, even under perfect care and working conditions. I do not recommend auch a badly made product.

Suck it dry!!

Clwvolley 1/6/2023

I live in a 550 sq ft apartment in the Southeast. I purchased this to help with those numerous high humidity days with temps in the 60's during winter. Too warm to run heat and too cool to run a/c so the humidity in my older apartment gets up into the 70's. The 50 pint dehumidifier works amazingly well! Running at med set to 60% humidity it will bring the entire place down to 55% humidity and keep it there. Plus I was pleasantly surprised at how little electricity it uses.

Working well and nice festures

Wayne Balsiger 12/29/2022

We have used our dehumidifier to reduce humidity in the basement since buying it about four months ago.I like the options to set the target humidity, turn off after a set time, multiple fan speeds and ease of emptying the water. It shows the current humidity.Last, there is an option to run continuously and add a drain pipe.

Second Time Around

Maxy18 12/28/2022

This is our second dehumidifier. First one failed before the first year was up. Have to say Frigidaire stood by their warranty. Asked a few questions and quickly determined that machine needed to be replaced. When working, humidifier works beautifully. We have connected ours with a hose and water flows out.

Shaun3 12/23/2022

Purchased for summer use 2021. Worked great for 3 months. After 3 months it froze (water on floor). Error code. Let external ice melt and restarted several times. Replacement unit sent under warranty. New unit used summer of 2022. Lasted 3 months (water on floor) Error code. Now off warranty. My old dehumidifier lasted over 25 years. Will now purchase a Santa-Fe with a 6 year warranty.

Electrolux refuse to honor my warranty, unit under warranty is Frigidaire HIGH HUMIDITY 50 Pint Capacity Dehumidifierffad5033r1, they sent me a Frigidaire MODERATE Humidity 35 Pint Capacity Dehumidifier ffad 3533w1 35 pint which is 29.9 % less than my 50 pints. After many calls to them no action, they just keep giving me misinformation, was told by 1 rep that a 50-pint unit cannot be sent to me because now the price is higher than when I bought it and if I want a 50 pint, I would have to buy it.

Oh for two

Oh for two 12/14/2022

Bought one in mid '21. A couple of months later, it died (heating coil). Took months for Frigidaire to ship the replacement (same model). And then, the replacement died a few months later (unrecoverable error code). Oh-for-two. Be sure to get a product protection warranty, but from a 3rd party.

Lasted only a few months

Intruder04605 12/13/2022

Worked as advertised for 5 months. Light, moderate use. It started throwing the error code EC. Followed owners manual suggestion and over the next few weeks the frequency of the error code increased. Called Frigidaire and they wanted me to follow same procedure. Explained that had done it multiple times with same outcome. As it was still in warranty they agreed to replace the unit. This is the third Frigidaire unit I have had to replace in two years. Have purchased several Frigidaire products over the years. Very concerned about build quality at this point. Would consider a different manufacturer in future.

Dehumidifiers will fail

mikezzz 11/24/2022

Every brand will fail eventually. My Frigidaire failed after 1 year. Just make sure you get an extended warranty. The way they are made now, you can't get one repaired as they are closed systems. I am looking into a more industrial/commercial solution for my damp basement.

Worked very afficiantly after putting up plaster board and Mudd.

Works for about 1.5 years before freezing incessantly

Willa2022 11/20/2022

I™€™ve liked this dehumidifier a lot. It has worked well. However now that we have had it for about 1.5 years the coils freeze up incessantly. So much that in about 60 minutes of running the ice has grown to freeze the filter in place. Given how much this unit costs, it should last longer than 1.5 years or at least be easily serviceable. I doubt I will be another Frigidaire dehumidifier after this experience.

Frigidaire Dehumidifier

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.
