Overall, these units do what they are supposed to do: grab water moisture out of the air and condense it. That they do reasonably well. The issues I have with these units revolve mostly around what the unit does with said condensate. The condensate can either run into a 17 pint reservoir (and hence needs to be emptied multiple times per day) or one can attempt to attach a drain hose. Well, unless you get a free drain hose kit from Frigidaire, expect to experiment with the latter approach. Even reclining the unit would not reliably cause all water to run out via the drain hose - instead, some of the condensate ended up in both the drain hose and the bucket. As soon as the bucket is full, the unit shuts down. I look forward to the drain kits and hope that my drainage issues then come to an end (yes, kits, as I ordered three of them for my in-laws and I don't expect elderly folk to be emptying condensate buckets multiple times per day). Other features in this series cast the unit in a better light: The handle on top and the casters below make repositioning the unit fairly easy. The air filter is reasonably easy to reach and clean (it requires bucket removal first). The humidistat is electronic and shows the ambient humidity in 5-degree RH increments. The blower fan is reasonably quiet yet fairly good at creating circulation. Most of the units arrived without any serious blemishes, only one had a snap-fit pop out during shipping. So I am disappointed that the engineering department at Frigidaire did not catch something as obvious as the drainage issue before the units entered the field. Either the units should include the drain kit in the box or they should be redesigned so they no longer require a special drain kit from the OEM to function flawlessly.

Like another reviewer, this is my 4th Frigidaire since 2008 and the 2nd this year. The 1st unit lasted 2 seasons, the 2nd unit lasted one season, and the 3rd unit lasted 3 months. All 3 units lost refrigerant and the compressor stopped working. Since this is a new model, I am hoping for better quality. I also had the drain hose problem and I solved it by using a "Y" garden hose connector that I had previously purchased when I planted a new lawn and didn't need anymore. I attached the "Y" garden hose connector to the drain fitting on the back of the dehumidifier and pointed one of the outlets down. I connected my black garden hose to the connector that was facing down. The "Y" connector has ball valves so you can turn each outlet on or off. I opened the bottom one, of course, to let the water flow to the drain and i opened the other one so that a vacuum would not develop in the hose. An engineer told me to not use a clear hose, as they tend to gunk up due to light being able to pass through the hose. I used a black garden hose and several times last year I noticed that the bucket on the dehumidifier was full. I checked the end of the hose and found that it was gunked up even though it was black. After cleaning the hose, it again allowed water to pass through. I was leery of installing the rubber plug that Frigidaire is offering to correct the drain hose problem because if the hose gets gunked up and you have the rubber plug installed, where is the water going to go? It will back up into the upper half of the dehumidifier and leak out onto the floor and possible damage the dehumidifier, so I went with the "Y" garden connector as a more confident fix. If the hose gets plugged again, the water will flow harmlessly back into the bucket and it will shut off when full. Hopefully, Frigidaire has fixed the compressor leak problems with this new model. If this unit fails before the 5 year warranty, I will look elsewhere for a dehumidifier. Frigidaire did replace the 2 units that were still under the 12 month warranty, free of charge. They offered me a partial refund on the first unit that failed after the 12 month warranty expired even though the compressor unit has a 5 year warranty which doesn't mean much if Frigidaire refuses to honor it.

Great brand

By CB

Comments about Frigidaire FAD704DUD 70-Pint Capacity Dehumidifier:

The dehumidifier worked as expected...quiet, and kept the basement humidity down. I liked also the feature where the collected water can be drained continuously to my sump pit so I do not have to empty the collecting reservoir manually. After operating about a year continuously, the compressor gave out. I called up Frigidaire, and they graciously offered to replace it. Wow! What a company. I certainly want to keep buying their brand products.

Best Dehumidifier

By Pat

from Undisclosed

Comments about Frigidaire FAD704DUD 70-Pint Capacity Dehumidifier:

Of the three dehumidifiers I have owned, this Frigidaire 70 Pint Capacity Dehumidifier operates the most efficiently. The previous dehumidifiers I have owned would run continuously without ever stopping. This model is keeping my 500 sq foot storage room at no more than 35% humidity level without having to run all the time. I have a meter that measures humidity level apart from the Frigidaire dehumidifier. It confirms that no more than 35% humidity level. Some days, the dehumidifier does not come on automatically all day. So, it is keeping the humidity low and more cost effective. Thankful for my Frigidaire dehumidifier!

Comments about Frigidaire FAD704DUD 70-Pint Capacity Dehumidifier:

Frigidaire truly stands behind their products. I was extremely pleased by the way Frigidaire gladly refunded my purchase price when I had a problem with the 70-pint dehumidifier that I had bought several months earlier. I would rate Frigidaire top ten for their great customer service. Helen in Richmond, VA.

Makes life more comfortable!

By Lucy

from Undisclosed

Comments about Frigidaire FAD704DUD 70-Pint Capacity Dehumidifier:

We use the Frigidaire dehumidifier during the humid, hot days that Washington DC is famous for. We keep the air conditioner at a constant temperature (78 degrees) in the spring-fall but running the dehumidifier makes the air in the house much more comfortable. My husband notices immediately if the unit was turned off temporarily. We use a short hose to discharge the water to a drain so we don't have to empty the tank.

Comments about Frigidaire FAD704DUD 70-Pint Capacity Dehumidifier:

This is our second Frigidaire dehumidifier. Our 1928 house basement needs dehumidification during warm months to remove moisture. This dehumidifier does the trick. I recommend.

Comments about Frigidaire FAD704DUD 70-Pint Capacity Dehumidifier:

I've owned this product for about 5 months. In the last 3 weeks, the removable filter has iced up. I've had to shut the unit off and unplug it and wait for the ice on the filter to melt.
