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.

Don't bother

bob343 6/18/2022

Product is absolute garbage, look at reviews, you probably have a 50/50 chance of getting a product that breaks after a few weeks. I got this to replace an older version that broke. Both stopped working in less than 3 months with the same issue. They run for a short period, then shut off with an error code about the filter(faulty sensor). They also won't do anything about it, they know they are selling faulty products, and don't care. Don't buy, they don't stand behind what they make.

Frigidaire Dehumidifier

Does a great job removing humidity. Replaced an old Frigidaire Dehumidifier that kept throwing an error code. This new one appears to remove much move humidity than the old one. It's relatively quiet on middle speed setting. Let's see how long it lasts.

Dehumidifier works very well in our basement. I like the fact that it is portable we put it in different areas that have the most humidity. It really pulls the moisture out of the air I dump the bucket at least every 18 hours. The hose attachment works well too as I have a floor drain we have been very happy with this unit.

Stopped working after 2 seasons. Unrepairable

Gm0907 6/16/2022

Bought this in August of 2020 at ABT electronics. Used it only in summer for a total of 4 months. Then it stopped working. Code is EC. Customer service said it is not repairable and they will not replace it because of only 1 year warranty. Very disappointed. A total waste of money. Will not buy any of Frigidaire products anymore.

Working so far

Kim16 6/16/2022

I cannot remember how many Frigidaire dehumidifiers I have owned, but this one is a warranty replacement for one that resulted in a compressor error. When I called to report the problem since I knew the unit was still under warranty, I did not expect customer service to quickly replace my unit. But to my surprise they offered to replace it immediately. All I had to do was submit the proper paperwork and the new unit arrived easily within a week of my initial submission. I™€™ve tried several different brands of dehumidifiers and Frigidaire is my favorite. However, I have not had a dehumidifier that last more than three years probably. They all end up breaking at some point or another I need to be replaced. I wish the units overall were cheaper or developers could figure out how to extend the average life of a unit.

This new dehumidifier is much improved over the 5 year old Frigidaire dehumidifier that I had to replace. The settings and automatic adjustments are very easy to use. This unit is very efficient in significantly reducing a large amount of humidity in our basement. The red plastic float that indicates the fill level is a simple and efficient way to know how full the tank is. Very clever!

EC death code after 2 seasons

toms1959 6/16/2022

I got only two years of life from this unit. That seems common from the review. If $140 per year works for you - great. If not, move on to another brand. Purchased 6/6/2020. Turned it on two days ago. It is not working and displays the deadly EC code. Walmart says 5 year warranty on the closed system. In prior reviews it does not look like Frigidaire honored that warranty.

Good overall -- just hope it lasts (posted June 15, 2022)

preacher Doug 6/16/2022

I have been using the unit for 9 days so far and it works well. It removes the moisture fairly quickly and takes it down to the set point of 50% Relative Humidity (based on the unit's LED readout). That is dry enough to keep the basement smelling fresh instead of musty otherwise. It seems to struggle to lower the humidity much below 50% even though the basement temperature is 68 degrees (not too cool to impair effectiveness). The first unit I got didn't work because there was no power switch under the top panel membrane (!) but Frigidaire promptly replaced it with the one I am reviewing. I gave this one a 4 star review because the plastic of the collection bucket & housing seems a bit too thin. Also, the two hooks used for winding up the power cord on the back of the unit are definitely flimsy. I just hope this model lasts more than 2 or 3 seasons as has been the average for previous dehumidifiers from other manufacturers.

Top model failed after 18 months

Juicejockey 6/16/2022

We reviewed a dozen dehumidifiers before selecting this Frigidaire model. It worked very well for the first year or so but when we started it back up this summer I felt it was not collecting water as before. Today I notice the whole back of the unit was a solid block of ice. The unit is totally clean and has good air flow so this tells me (refrigeration tech) that it is low on refrigerate caused by a leak and this causes the icing when it gets low. So disappointed with this as it now out of warranty and recharging is not the answer. We paid extra $$ to buy what we thought would last us many years not just one.

First one lasted only four months.

Leo22 6/16/2022

3-star Rating is the average of two units. Current unit is a warranty replacement for same model that only lasted 4 months before developing an ™€œEC™€ code and no longer working. After two months the unit new unit seems to be working well and is very efficient at removing moisture. Too soon to tell if the new unit will last longer than the original one. I expect a dehumidifier to operate for many years, not just a few months. Would likely increase the rating to five stars if the new unit gives me multiple years of operation.

Only worked 4 months

smekrc 6/16/2022

I bought this machine in May 2021. I used it for 4 months and it worked well. I stored it for the winter. The firs time I used it in 2022 ( beginning of June) it turned on but did not collect any water. It gave the EC error code, the sealed system and condenser is defective and the unit is not repairable. When I contacted Frigidaire I was told it was out of warranty (by 2 whole weeks) and there was nothing they could do for me. I will not be purchasing Frigidaire products again.

Roger T 6/15/2022

I have used this dehumidifier for three years and it's worked flawlessly. My basement, which is naturally very damp, is kept dry throughout the year. Even more impressive is the five year warranty and customer support I received from Frigidaire. The unit's compressor stopped working. I contacted customer service and the unit was replaced within five days. I would highly recommend the unit and Frigidaire.

No longer working after 18 months.

dml2 6/15/2022

I was impressed that my previous dehumidifier was replaced once it gave up and produced a specific error code. The new one is no longer functioning properly after just 18 months. The other day, I noticed a thick roll of ice around the mid section. Took me a day or so to that it all off. I reset it for 45 percent humidity, but it will not go lower than 55. It appears I will need a new one, but I am not sure how to buy one that will last.

Every dehumidifier is wait and see

Awsi Dooger 6/15/2022

Midrange grade because early impressions are somewhat irrelevant with a product like this. What will I be saying 3 or 5 years from now? I received this item as free replacement for a Frigidaire 70 pint unit that failed with the dreaded F0 error code. Frigidaire chat was superb in quickly and efficiently processing the replacement. Easy 5 stars in that category. I received this unit only 11 days after first contact. At first glance it is very similar but I'm not sure why they moved the controls from front to back, or the blower from side to top. Benefit of a doubt to maybe they discovered something. It does take some getting used to. This model is really filling up the bucket in a hurry. It verifies what we had suspected, that the 70 pint unit was already losing effectiveness long before the error code. Also I appreciate the new model's recommended instructions to leave it in Continuous mode for the first 3-4 days after turning it on, to get rid of the odors and built up in the room.BTW, during registration I attempted to purchase an extended warranty. That is generally recommended for dehumidifiers. I had it with the prior model. But the checkout process this time was annoying to say the least. They gave me one price on the tout, then added taxes, which was fine, but once the "Pay" button appeared the tally was somehow jacked up $18, with no explanation whatsoever. No thank you. I dismissed the tab and got out of there. I'm sure Frigidaire will send another offer for the extended warranty. And given phantom charges I'll bail again.

Good But Could Be Imorived

CT Purchase 6/15/2022

The unit is helping to keep our basement dry from humidity. However, there are a few things that should be redesigned. I am unable to see if the bucket is full due to the red notification light being so small on the unit. The unit is down a flight of stairs, so it is a distance away. Unless you are looking right on top of it, you can™€™t tell. The old unit had a large blinking light so there was no doubt when the bucket was full. Next, the bucket handle slips out of its plastic holder constantly. The plastic material is too soft that it bends, so to keep the water bucket from falling, you must cradle the water bucket with one hand beneath it and hold the handle with the other hand as well. Not very safe, but it™€™s that or drop water all over the floor. Next, I preferred when the filtered air was sent out via the side of the unit instead of up the top of it. The air hits the ceiling and it feels like an explosion of air. The old unit went out the side and created a circulation of air that made the whole room circulate the air consistently, like a floor fan would. I would also note that the unit is louder than what I previously had. When it is on, you can hear it upstairs even though it™€™s located in the basement. Lastly, whenever the unit is turned off, it shudders violently. I have no idea why, but the old unit never did. The plastic body of the new unit has a much softer shell. Only purchased the new unit in 2022 because the old one stopped after three years, which seems a rather short lifespan. I am hoping that this unit lasts longer, but I™€™m glad that I took out the additional insurance coverage. It might be needed.

AllenFJ 6/14/2022

Picking a reliable dehumidifier that is efficient, quiet and will last more than a year is challenging. Reviews are always mixed, thus adding to the anxiety over making the correct decision. The Frigidaire 50 pint dehumidifier had high and what appeared to honest practical reviews, so this was our choice. Thus far expectations have been exceeded!

Poor Unit stopped performing after total of 8 hours of use

Misterz 6/14/2022

Having trouble with unit developing thick layer of ice. The unit was just started abouot 3 weeks ago & was running OK. Have the unit in same place under same conditions. Have made two calls that kept me on the phone with a person in the Philippine's who I had to repeat information two on both days. Explained that I was told by a local authorized repair service that this model cannot be repaired because they cannot get parts. The unit only has a one year warranty so mine was out of warranty but I explained that the unit has only been run for no more than 9 hours since Sept 2020. It appears that Frigidaire, who I thought had a good product, does not stand behind their units. I had a frigidaire prior to purchasing this unit that worked well which is why I purchased another one. Very disappointed that I am now out the $260 it cost plus I now will have to find another product in stock.

This dehumidifier is working well at this time. It runs normally and is very easy to empty. I took off one star only because with the design, it fills up so high in the bucket that it spills a tiny bit every time I remove the bucket to empty it. It™€™s not a problem but I wish it was a little different so that didn™€™t happen every time. My old Frigidaire dehumidifier did not last as long as I™€™d like, so I™€™m hoping this one will last as they are expensive to be buying so frequently.
