Unable to control the maching

I have been unable to properly control the machine. The timer goes on automatically, and will turn off the machine up to a day later. I usually cannot turn the machine back on. Is there a way to reset the timer controls, etc? Thanks, G?rald

Re: Unable to control the maching

Are you sure that this is a timer issue because my research does not list this unit with a timer. It does have a humidistat which could give the operation that you describe depending on where the humidity level is set. You should be able to go to the menu and select the mode that the unit is in. If it is set to run until a certain moisture level is reached it sounds as though your unit is probably working the way it is supposed to. Generally that is the mode that most people would want. If you want it to remove more moisture readjust this setting to a lower percentage. Your operation manual should explain the procedure. Good luck.

Is it possible to buy a portable dehumidifier which will automatically restart and function after a temporary power outage? What do you ask for?

Hello William, thank you for your post!
I understand that you would like to have a dehumidifier that restarts after a power outage. I have reviewed the available models for Frigidaire and show that feature is not available. You may want to speak with additional manufacturers for that feature. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

There is no water going in the container can you Tell me why this is

some reasons i can think of are

(1) operator not famliar with operation of dehumidifier , Ie controls not set properly or interlocks not made on bucket full switch , just because you hear a fan running doesnt mean it's working
(2) unit defective , or etrreemly dirty inside filters never cleaned in its lifetime
(3) operator askin machine to remove too much moisture from air than it can so now room has no excess moisture to "give up" settings less than 53% rh could cause this problem , this of course is precusor to unit works very well at first then sort of tails off days later

Frigidaire dehumidifier brand new will not start.

Hello Diane Weber, thank you for your inquiry!
I see that you have recently purchased a Frigidaire dehumidifier and the display is not working properly. When you returned the original appliance did they test it in store to see if it worked? Are you using any type of extension cord or surge protector on the appliance? With this additional information I can better assist you. -Matt

My frigidaire dehumidifier fad704dud does not turn on when plugged in

Good Morning Robert,

I understand your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD704DUD, does not turn on when it is plugged in. I also see that the display lights up briefly and there are no error codes. Your appliance is designed to operate between 41 degrees F (5 degrees C), and 96 degrees F (35 degrees C). It will not work properly if the temperature is out of this temperature range, or the performance of the unit will fall greatly. The "Compressor" circuit has an automatic 3 minute time delayed start if your dehumidifier is turned off and on quickly. This prevents overheating of the compressor and possible circuit breaker tripping. Make sure the tank is fitted correctly otherwise your appliance will not turn on. If you are still having trouble, you can contact your local authorized technician for further assistance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Set timer to 5 hours running. How long does it stay off before turning back on for another 5 hrs

Once the timer turns the unit ON and it runs for 5 hours and turns OFF, you have to manually restart it again. It will not turn back ON automatically,

In case you may have misplaced your Owner's Manual, I have included a link to it, to assist you further. You may download and print the manual for future reference, if you like.,_6009,_7009REE_EFOM.pdf

We recently purchased a darby dehumidifier-#DDR6009EE-60 pint- and have not been able to program the equip.Can you help us. We need to know how to adjust it so that it will go on and off after specific...

I beleive there is some confusion about the Timer Mode. It can only be set to turn the unit OFF after a selected time period. For example: It's 6pm you want the unit to turn OFF at 10pm. You press the Timer button on the unit itself, in increments, until it reaches 4 hours. At 10pm the unit will turn OFF. As a safety feature, it does not have the capability to turn the unit ON at a selected time and then OFF again. In the interim, until you get really familiar with all the functions of this model, use the control pad on the unit, rather than the remote control.

I hope this helped you understand what the timer does and how to activate & set it.

Is there any way to run automatically. . . where when it reaches humid per cent it shuts off? Can you rig to run for x hrs. per day and then shut off and restart the next day?

Norman, once the unit reaches the extraction level you have it set for, the unit will turn OFF automatically. However, depending on the humidity level in your home, it may take several cycles of running and emptying the bucket until it reached. After that, it should turn OFF, once the level is reached. Then when the humidity level rises above the setting it's on, it will start up again.

Since your unit is a Manually Controlled unit, there's no safe way to "rig' it to run on with a timer. The plug in wall timers are not rated high enough to handle the load of the dehumidifiers operation. Trying to use one, would fry the timer and possibly the dehumidifier.

If you want all the features you mentioned, you will need to purchase a new electronically controlled dehumidifier.

Has been running fine. my daughter emptied it yesterday morning and didn't put the catch container back in the machine properly and a red light (small round) on top left of machine was on when I went...

Actually, the fan shouldn't be working if the water bucket is not installed properly. So, I believe it's more of a case of the electronic controls need to be reset.

To accomplish this, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes.
After the time as elapsed, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The Bucket Full light should not, now be ON. And the unit can function as it should, after you reset the controls for maximum humidity extraction (32 - 35%).

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
