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 gjb@gol.com

    It turned out the control unit was defective, and had been so right from the beginning. I got it replaced under warrenty.

    Thank you vor your help.

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

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.

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.

Model 501D(had the wrong model number before) When I turn the unit on where the humidity is set there is a code CO 01. Unable to find my manual. the unit starts then turns off.


Hello,

I will advice you check the water bucket to see if it is full and empty the bucket in a sink if needed. GE dehumidifiers have a safety feature that shuts down the device when the water in the bucket reaches a certain level.
Install the bucket correctly in the unit by hooking the slots on the bucket on the posts on the back of the device. The dehumidifier will not run if the bucket is not properly setup in the device.
Take care.

None of the control buttons work.


the only company, if the parts were available at all, that would have them, would be dey distributing in duluth mn, phone 218-723-1626. give them the part number and they'll look it up for you. All of my available sources tell me the part is no longer available, so you may have to replace the unit if dey can't help you. try purchasing a kenmore, they seem to work fairly well.

What you think it means is exactly what it does mean. When a running unit is shut off it should not be restarted until the system pressures have had time to balance out so the compressor can restart without difficulty.
