How It Works

When the unit is started, the fan begins to pull moisture-laden air across the dehumidifying coil. The coils condense or draw moisture from the air and air flows through the side louvers into the room as dry, warm air. Moisture removed from air is collected in a bucket on the front of the dehumidifier.

• 70 pints of moisture per day dehumidification.

• Effortless humidity control allows you to control the exact percentage of humidity in your room.

• Continuous operation is possible when unit is located near a suitable drain.

• Protects your home from mold and mildew caused by excess moisture and Helps eliminate bacteria in the air that can make breathing difficult.

• Anti-microbial mesh filter.

• AHAM certified and Energy Star compliant.

Effortless Clean Filter
The antibacterial mesh filter reduces bacteria, room odors and other airborne particles for a cool, comfortable environment. The washable filter keeps your air smelling fresh. Cleaning the filter is a breeze. Located in the bottom of the unit, the filter slides out for easy access. The CLEAN FILTER light will illuminate after 250 hours, about every 2 weeks, of operation. At this time, remove the bucket and pull the filter downwards. Then, wash the filter with clean water and let dry completely. Once the filter has been cleaned and replaced, simply press the FILTER button to extinguish the light and the unit is ready to get back to work.

More Easy to Use Functions

Improves Home Environment and Air Smells Fresher
The Frigidaire FAD704DUD 70 pint dehumidifier protects and prevents your home from mold and mildew caused by excess moisture and helps eliminate bacteria in the air that can make breathing difficult. The washable filter keeps your air smelling fresh. The full function electronic controls allows you to set your unit to the precise environment to prevent odors that result from mold, mildew and bacteria in any room.

Continuous Pump Option
You have the option to continuously drain your dehumidifier. This way, you don't have to worry about emptying the water bucket. Simply place the dehumidifier near a drain to discharge the water into. Then, screw a garden hose onto the threaded portion of the drain connector in the dehumidifier, and direct the hose toward the drain. Finally, select the desired humidity setting and fan speed on the unit for continuous draining to start.

Front-Loading Bucket with Carrying Handle and Splash Guard
The water bucket is conveniently located in the front of the unit allowing for easy access to empty and clean the canister. The easily accessible carrying handle and splash guard means no more messes with spilled water and makes emptying your bucket hassle-free.

Effortless Automatic Shut-Off and Full-Tank Alert System
The dehumidifier unit will shut off automatically and alert you when your water tank nears capacity and it is time to empty the water bucket. With a bucket full indicator there will be no more messes with spilled water.

This dehumidifier works great- very quiet and really sucks out the moisture.
brubarb
Very disppointing since all my previous dehumidifiers lasted well over 10 years; and one of them is still working fine.

By the way, it is not possible to contact Frigidaire customer service by their 800 number.

I bought mine at the local big-box home improvement store. It is used in my heated basement, which I want extra-dry as my firearms and other sensitive items are stored there.

After six months it started making a lot of noise. I checked it and found that the cooling coils were completely iced up, totally blocking the air flow. I let it defrost completely and tried again, with the same icing resulting after a few hours. I checked the manual. which gave "room temperature is too low" as the cause. Doubtful, I thought, but it is winter and only about 60 degrees in here. So I waited to spring and tried again. Now there is no cooling effect at all, and no water output. Obviously the icing was from the cooling fluid leaking, and finally it all leaked out resulting in the total lack of operation.

This is my second Frigidaire dehumidifier. The first had a fan motor failure after six months.

Obviously Frigidaire is no longer synonymous with quality.

By the way, it is not possible to contact Frigidaire customer service by their 800 number. The option for "speak to a representative" results in the computer giving a long-distance number to call. On previous occasions, I have had no luck with trying to contact them via their web site, either. However I tried again, this time requesting return contact by telephone.

This time they actually responded, but by email despite my request for contact by phone. The response was "I would like to offer you a 60% rebate towards a new unit." My response to that was, quoting the manual, "The unit has a FIVE YEAR WARRANTY period during which 'Frigidaire will repair or replace any part in the Sealed Refrigeration System....,' so why should I have to pay 40 percent?

I owned the previous version of this dehumidifier (Frigidaire Dehumidifier, 70-Pint Capacity, FAD704TDP) and the compressor failed in just over 1.5 years. I was disappointed by this, but it was not unexpected. My previous research of customer comments on both amazon.com and Consumer Reports indicated that failure in 1.5 years is now the norm for dehumidifiers! (I wonder whether the new government regulations have anything to do with this - FYI, they now prohibit the use of FREON and the failures in a couple of years started after that; previously dehumidifiers lasted 10 or more years). Note that everyone who wrote reviews in 6 month or less after purchase was very pleased with the dehumidifiers in general (as was I), but reviews written 6 or 12 months after purchase started to complain about failures (compressor mostly). Very disppointing since all my previous dehumidifiers lasted well over 10 years; and one of them is still working fine. But I needed a dehumidifiier and this one semed to be the best of a not very good set of choices, so I ordered it. I was very pleased with it when it arrived and it worked great until if failed. I rated it 5 stars and updated my review several times until it failed whereupon I downgraded it to 4 stars. You can see my full review of that model on amazon.com.

But now I needed another one. I redid much of my research of customer comments and came up with the same conclusion that failure in 1.5 years was the norm and that this model was the best of the lot. So, I decided to get the same one again. When I looked at the model on amazon.com, there was a note that said "Would you like to see a newer version of this model?". I clicked on it and THIS model came up.

This unit sucks water from the air by the gallons. I set it up in my finished basement and right out of the box it worked great. So well, in fact, I needed to empty the large capacity tank too often. So I opened up the back hose valve, connected a short garden hose and pointed it to the floor drain. The unit kept filling up the tank and did not drain out the hose :-(. It appears that the hose drain in the back just works on gravity--there's no pump. So if the floor is not level and/or if the hose is a little narrower than the male connector on the back of the unit (as most are) the water will not drain through the hose the valve. The fault is poor product design. To remedy, I bought a right-angle PVC adapter, barb adapter and clear tubing (to visually see whether it was working) from Flex PVC.com. Parts: "508-007 FGH by .75 FPT (female NPT) 90degree", "PPN46 3/4 mpt x 1/2 barb adapter", and "1/2 x 5/8 Clear Tubing BTF". The right angle adapter is large and maintains the 3/4" garden hose opening from end to end. Once assembled and attached I experimented and found the correct position for the dehumidifier which is on a slightly uneven floor. Now the water drains through the hose (which I can watch through the clear hose) and it works as it should. Frigidaire should provide this setup to all users that need to use the hose valve in the back until they fix the design issue. I keep the unit running continuously and it gives off more heat than I would like, heating up the basement which is usually cool in the summer. But it's somewhat unavoidable with this technology so I will take heat over humidity. I've added an image of my setup to the product images for visual reference.
