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.

Made a big difference instantly

Ana L B 7/19/2024

I was having some severe issues with my AC after big structural repair. My house was reaching around 65-70% humidity no matter what I did. The second I added put this on my second floor it dropped to 45%.

Complete junk

Lindas review 7/18/2024

We used this product for 4 mo and it died. We were approved for a replacement on may 21, 2024. We have been told that it was shipped twice, still no replacement. I then requested a refund, was told cant get one because we are getting a replacement. Everytime I call, I get a different answer. I will NEVER buy a Fridgedaire product again. You have lost me as a customer, and rest assured I will be telling everone I know, and everyone I can reach online, about the horrendous way you treat your customers, and how your products are complete junk!

Frigidaire 50 Pint Dehumidifier

Joedp 7/17/2024

Just bought a Frigidaire 50 Pint Dehumidifier from Lowe's. The box was pretty beat up at the store pick-up area. We opened it up right there to make sure there was no damage to the unit. Didn't see anything negative. I guess the foam packing did its' job. Got the unit home, set it up in the basement, and let it sit for an hour or so, as indicated in the manual. Powered it up and it ran for about 6 hours at continuous, high speed fan operation, which was normal ops for initial power up. I had to empty the water bucket since it was almost full after only 6 hours. This dehumidifier extracted over 2 gallons of water in that 6 hours or so. The basement feels much drier already. No more heavy sweating on pipes. The concrete slab damp areas have dried up a lot already. This unit is very efficient and is also very quiet, even with the compressor running. The only drawback, and I knew this before hand, is that the unit will expel warm air to do its' job. This is not a problem, considering the humidity issue is resolved. The solution for that would be to have an air conditioner in the basement as well. I do not. We'll live with the warmer drier air. It's more comfortable than the wet damp warm air that was in the basement before installing this unit. I'd recommend this Frigidaire 50 Pint Dehumidifier to resolve your humidity issues.

Very disappointed

Delmont67 7/15/2024

My dehumidifier lasted just over a Year! Purchased in May of 2023 but we don™€™t run a dehumidifier until July because we live in Northern Michigan and have cool weather for most of the time, and run dehumidifier for about 3 to 31/2 months. It has the code of EU and doesn™€™t work at all., so disappointed in your product! I called the 800 number and a girl told me there is nothing you can do. My Model #ffad5033wl serial # kn24950287 if you can help please let my know.

This product stopped working after 4 months of operation. It has been very difficult getting this product replaced through the extended warranty. The process is cumbersome and it has been months of run around. Customer service is very poor and is not customer centric; it is company centric. The support staff is not knowledgeable about the product. I'll not recommend any Frigidaire products due to product quality and bad customer service response.

Junk. They only last about 2.5 months. There is a reason why Frigidaire changed the warranty from 5 years to one year.

50 pint dehumidifier

hurricane650 7/14/2024

We purchased this new dehumidifier to replace an older one that stopped working. I like everything about it, except it could use a handle in the front of the dump/collection bucket like the older model. Requires two hands to pull the bucket. Older model only required one. Overall great humidifier.

Franklin47 7/13/2024

I received my new dehumidifier about 2 weeks ago. Unpacking it was a bit tricky but I can understand why the secure packing was necessary. Setting it up was very easy. Basically the only thing I needed to do was run a short garden hose from the unit to the sump pump hole in my basement. The instruction booklet was very clear and easy to understand. So far the unit is working fine, and its so nice not to have to empty the water bucket.

Don't waste your money on this product

Humid Ken 7/12/2024

My 3rd Frigidaire Dehumidifier has failed after less than a year. They must lose the refrigerant. The bottom few rows of coils get cold and ice up but the top doesn't. It removes less and less water until, finally, it's useless. The same thing has happened with every one of them. My basement is 70 degrees so it's not that it's too cold.

Dave508 7/9/2024

Dehumidifier stops after 5 - 6 hours with an EC error code. Covered under 1 year warranty, so they gave approval for a replacement a week ago. I'm still waiting, with no further information given. Chat and phone support appear to be overwhelmed, so I have time to write this review.

Keeps our home cooler and better sleep

Jenn12330 7/9/2024

I bought this as a recommendation from a friend who said that reducing the humidity in her home also reduced the strain on her A/C system. Well, it works! Our home is much more comfortable and cooler and the A/C gets to shut off in the afternoon instead of running continously. We are in Central Texas and our home is old and in need of new windows and doors so there are lots of leaky places. This is a great help until we are able to get new window/doors!

Frigidaire doesn't stand behind products

mcclm01 7/8/2024

Purchased this in April 2023. Used for approximately 5 months (live in Indiana). Plugged unit back in at beginning of July 2024 and compressor doesn't come on, so no water is being collected. I paid $300 for this and Frigidaire is unwilling to admit there is a problem here. This is not normal life for a product. DO NOT BUY A FRIGIDAIRE!

Effecient Moisture Removal

JoeKin Jersey 7/8/2024

I amquite happy with the way the unit is able to remove moisture from my finished basement. It is relatively quiet and is rated as "energy effecient" although haven't had long enough to verify. Only quibble is that the unit can't be programmed to turn on and off. Has to be restarted after every cycle. That part is a pain.

Dehumidifier Works Well

The only modification that is needed is to lower condensate collection volume to prevent spillage when the collector is removed and decanted into a toilet. The condensate collector design could be improved.

EC Code a common problem

DJC66 7/5/2024

EC code is the problem as so many have stated. Frigidaire will not recognize this as a "known" issue even though this review page is full of people reporting this problem. My dehumidifier is 2 years old so obviously their estimate of 5-10 years of use is totally wrong. Sadly, I will never purchase a Frigidaire dehumidifier again as this is the second one where I had a problem. Fortunately, for me, the first one died during the warranty period so I received a replacement, this time I have no resolution, (model FFAD5033W10)

Errors

Pat12345678 7/2/2024

Bought this unit from my local Lowe's after reading somewhat positive reviews. Set it up in my 900sq ft, medium humidity basement. After about 2 hours I could tell it was making a big difference. After 5 hours... it was off with an "E5" error code. Unplugged, replugged, all solutions. Nothing worked.If you're looking to spend $298.73 for 5 hours of operation this unit is for you.Welcome to the Frigidaire Family!

EC code 2 months after warranty expires

bruk98 7/1/2024

Ordered this dehumidifier last summer, has not been running even 1 year (we bought it a few months prior to needing it). 1.5 months outside of the 1-year warranty and the EC code has popped up and it shuts off. Called customer service and was told there is nothing they can do. Understand the risk of not pursuing the extended warranty but think it is absurd and shady for a unit to start to fail immediately after the traditional warranty period ends.

EB61 6/30/2024

I loved this dehumidifier until it stopped working. After 2 years of use it began to freeze up and the compressor stopped working. If you think that it is only used about 5 months out of the year, it has only run a little over a year, but out of warranty. Too expensive to have to replace so soon.

Unit lasted 10 months - Very poor manufacturer response to warranty coverage

Leslie135 6/27/2024

We set the dehumidifier up in an unfinished section of our lower level to address moisture issues we were having behind the drywall in another section of the basement. The unit worked great - for 10 months. The back of the unit fan kept working but did not drain - instead it iced up on the back surface. We contacted Frigidaire since the one year warranty had not yet expired. They stated they would send a new unit within 5-7 business days. That occurred at the end of May. We still have not received the replacement 4 weeks later nor have we received correspondence with shipping information. When we inquired about a new warranty period for the new unit, we were advised that the warranty period would be from the date of purchase of the ORIGINAL unit (now 11 months ago). In review of some customer reviews, our experience with icing up of this model was NOT unusual. We have given up and purchased another unit by a different manufacturer with a 5 year warranty.

Efficiently dehumidifies

2ndTimeBuyers 6/22/2024

I bought this FFAD5033 model because the 70 pint Frigidaire model I own and like isn't available any longer. The new one seems to work well so far, but it's a pain to empty! The older model has a handhold on the front of the bucket that makes it easier to handle. Also, this new model is difficult to empty because there is only a small opening in the top of the bucket to pour out the water. This modification will disappoint me every time I empty the bucket for as long as I own the unit.

The EC code strikes again. FFAD5033W1

Jason1021 6/21/2024

I have the FFAD5033W1 Frigidaire dehumidifier. Bought exactly a year ago, June 2023. It has worked great for the last 12 months. But, 6 days after my warranty expired I got an EC code on the indicating a leak in the sealed system. Apparently this can™€™t be repaired. I spent almost $300 on this unit and it only lasted a year?! I clean the filters monthly. Keep the unit off at night so it has time to cool down and not be too overworked. I keep the humidity set at 65% and I live in a relatively dry area. I™€™ve checked my outlet for a solid 115 volts so it™€™s not overpowered. I did all the things to keep this thing healthy and it still died on me! VERY FRUSTRATED that I wasted my hard earned money on a fancy looking piece of plastic. Very disappointed and now I have to spend more money! I™€™m not the only one who has had the dreaded EC code. There™€™s a lot of them out there. Almost all of your 1 star reviews have the EC code. What is going on?! Maybe this should be recalled. I feel bad for the people who have just purchased their FFAD5033W1 units. Completely unreliable! Do Not Buy! I wish I could give negative stars.
