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.

You can do much better, Frigidaire

Tired of crummy prod 5/21/2024

Frigidaire units get great ratings for how they perform during tests, but their reliability is at the bottom of the ocean with the deep sea fishies. Purchased unit in August 2022. Went to turn it on in May 2024 and we get the dreaded "EC" code three days in a row, indicating a likely leak of refrigerant. What a sad state of affairs that you can't buy a dehumidifier that will last more than a few years. We had a Kenmore from the early 1990s and it chugged along for 20+ years in a super damp and cold crawl space in our vacation home. This Frigidaire was in a relatively dry basement (no more than 65% humidity), the unit never ran during the winter, we cleaned the filter regularly, and it died in 18 months. This isn't rocket science, guys. You can build a better mousetrap.

DO NOT BUY

IsaacC 5/21/2024

DO NOT BUY.This model is junk. Last 1.5 summer seasons. That is it last from July 2022 to September 2022, then May 2023 to September 2023. That is 9 months of actual run time.At first it worked fine by getting rid of the humidity.BUT 9 months of run time is absolute trash. I have never had a humidifier that didn't work after just a few months of use. To top it off, frigidaire refuses to stand by their products. Only offering a 1 year warranty. I mean, are you kidding me? It is a dehumidifier it should easily last 5 years and realistically last 10+. This is the first and last time I will buy a frigidaire dehumidifier.

Disposable Dehumidifier.

Frigidha 5/16/2024

This is junk. It should be called a Disposable Dehumidifier. Just use it for one summer and toss it. It's so easy and will look great in your local landfill. This is the third one on four years and I was dumb enough to buy extended warranties and spend hours filling out paper work to receive a new one-- only to bread a year later-- don't waste your time

Fundamental design flaw, Frigidaire doesn't stand behind it

Dr Brett 5/8/2024

Only about a month after the 1 year warranty expired it began shutting off during the day and overnight with and error code EC on the screen. Unplugging and plugging back in would restart it, but only the fan would spin and the compressor wouldn't start so no dehumidifying. I searched on google and found that this is a very common issue and many people have had 3, 4, 5 units in a row fail with the same EC error code. The code means a failure in the refrigerant system and needs a total replacement of the dehumidifier, no repair is possible.Frigidaire used to offer a 5 year warranty for the refrigerant system, but recently (including this model) they removed this extra warranty and everything is now under a 1 year warranty. Most likely cost savings for them because so many people were replacing their units. Just google search EC error or F0 error and you'll see tons of examples. My unit failed a few weeks after my 1 year warranty had expired. I talked with customer support and they said there was nothing they could do. So please don't buy any Frigidaire dehumidifiers or air conditioners until they either fix their refrigerant design or change their warranty back to 5 years. It's obvious even Frigidaire doesn't believe these will last much more than a year.

Extremely Poor Dehumidifier

FWHPEH 5/6/2024

I™€™m posting this reviewed including my exact communication with Frigidaire regarding my purchase of their so called quality dehumidifier that so far has been ignored. My frustration stems from lack of making a truly quality product, which seems to be the norm by many companies in today™€™s manufacturing. It seems products today are inferior, selling at overly-inflated retails, and limiting warranties because it™€™s known that the resulting product is crap. Then, try to find a company with good service that appreciates their customers and wants to them to know that they stand behind their product. So, here™€™s my sad disappointing experience with Frigidaire. I purchased a Frigidaire dehumidifier for my finished basement on April 17, 2023 at my local appliance dealer, Roger™€™s Appliances. I selected Frigidaire because after much research I decided purchasing a reputable brand made sense. Apparently, my thought process was wrong. I live in New Jersey where use of a dehumidifier is only needed from roughly end of April through October. There™€™s no need for it in the late Fall, Winter, or early Spring months. The humidifier worked perfectly for my needs controlling the humidity quite efficiently. I was happy with the purchase. (Model FFAD 5033 W1)Now this year I plugged it in and turned on the unit May 1st, and after running one day, it displayed the code EC. I pulled the plug leaving off for a couple minutes, then plugged back in. The unit started, but the condenser never kicked on, therefore it never reduced the humidity level only blowing out cold air. I checked the meaning of EC code only to find out it means the unit is unrepairable. I called customer service (Marge) and, while she was very pleasant, she was unable to help only stating the unit is no longer under warranty. Seriously, 14 days after the 1 year warranty period , the unit becomes nothing but junk. She suggested perhaps when I purchase another unit I should consider an extended warranty. That™€™s when I lost it. I feel bad taking it out on her. Buying an extended warranty is telling me that I need to protect myself because you are incapable of manufacturing a good long-lasting product. I asked to speak with a supervisor. After being on hold for a short time, she returned saying the supervisor was still busy on another call. I asked for a call back, which I never received. Again, it seems customer service doesn™€™t care about the customer.I am extremely displeased with this Frigidaire dehumidifier. It is obviously a piece of junk. I am displeased with your customer service that has a zero leeway tolerance to accommodate customer purchases that have issues that are in the proximity of a warranty expiration. How do you justify that a humidifier lifespan of 1 year is acceptable? Rest assured that my replacement purchase will not be Frigidaire nor any other appliance in my future. Extremely displeased,

Tommiker 5/5/2024

I have had both air conditioner and dehumidifier by frigadare. They work and last longer than a few others. If all appliance manufacturers where required to make there appliances more repairable the world would be a better place. More entry level jobs less pollution.

THIRD Frigidaire dehumidifier has failed

meg12 4/30/2024

This is the 3rd humidifier from Frigidaire that has failed. Each one has only lasted one or two summers of use. Just like the others, it stopped working with an error code and doesn't remove the humidity from the room. I can't recommend this product and I'm really frustrated that I spent money on a product that isn't reliable.

I love my new humidifier- It takes lots of moisture out of the air and is very quiet which is exactly what i needed for my basement. I really didn't care what it looked like as long as it did the job but this is very sleek and modern looking. I have many Frigidaire products in my home due to the quality of the brand. Very happy with my purchase.

Will Frost in 18-24 Months and Then Must Be Tossed

GWBlack 4/24/2024

Worked great for 18 months. Then the coils froze (despite operating in finished basement at 65 deg F and keeping the filter clean). I allowed the unit to thaw and tried again. A day later the coils froze again (at bottom, like another review pic shows) -- likely due to a freon leak. After reading forums, people are convinced these things are only engineered to last a couple years and then fail (with a few exceptions). Tried to call Frigidaire but couldn't get through, and I'm not convinced it would do any good since one of the phone prompts asked if my unit was still under warranty.TO FRIGIDAIRE: Please don™€™t just reply to tell me to call 1-800-xxx-xxxx. I tried that twice and experienced an endless hold cycle. I tried providing my email address here, but my review was rejected due to providing personal information.

IMMEDIATE RECOVERY

89Ginger 4/14/2024

Owning a dehumidifier is a first for me. This model was recommended by a neighbor and is living up to its advertised performance. It currently is located in my bathroom and in no time lowers the humidity, after a shower, from 61 to 55. The generated noise is acceptable and does not interfere with sleeping. I would recommend it.

Dreaded EC Code after just under 2 years old

FrigiDan 4/10/2024

As others have shared, at just under 2 years old this unit is displaying the EC code. If you unplug it and plug it back in the code returns. The quality of Frigidaire has certainly gone downhill over the years and it's a shame we're loading up the landfills with all of these poorly designed dehumidifiers. I'll definitely be trying a different brand moving forward.

This dehumidifier was great - until it wasn't

Burned customer 3/29/2024

This dehumidifer was great - until it wasn't. It was relatively quiet, kept my large basement at a reasonable humidity level, and emptied into my sump hole. But after 13 months, it developed a frozen block of ice on the back, then an error code, and then it wouldn't turn on at all. The warranty of 12 months had expired, but Frigidaire had sent me an advertisement for a 5-year extended warranty. I purchased this extended coverage, but 2 months later (when I was about to call about my broken machine), they sent me a message telling me they had just refunded my warranty purchase as they don't repair dehumidifiers (even though they were the ones who encouraged me to buy this protection). I submitted a complaint to the Better Business Bureau. Electrolux's (the parent company) response was to give me a 28% "Friends and Family Discount" on a new machine. It didn't seem worth it to pay this much money for a machine that died just after one year (and I didn't even use it in the winter months when my heating system dries out the house). I declined their offer and will buy a new machine from a different company. I should add that we also have an Electrolux washer and dryer. The repairman who once came out was great, but I won't be buying anymore appliances from a company that is so short-sighted in dealing with "valued" customers.
