When I searched this error code, I found that F-2 means bad sensor. I found no further information as to what sensor it was. You don't give the name of the manufacturer, so I couldn't search from that perspective.
If it is a bad sensor, you may require professional repair.
Before I took it anywhere to be worked on, I would be certain that the catch bucket was setting square (indicating no water in the bucket).
Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

F1 is room temperarure sensor error. F2 is tube temperature sensor error.
The room sensor usually is located in the front of the condenser. The tube sensor is usually plugged in a tube near the condensor.
The tube temperature sensor (thermistor) should be about 10K ohms.

Hello lynn crisp, thank you for your post!
From what you have explained regarding your Frigidaire dehumidifier it sounds like the sensor or control panel has become faulty. I would recommend resetting your dehumidifier and you can do that by unplugging the power cord for ten minutes. Is your dehumidifier under warranty? If so, you may want to reach out to the manufacturer for a resolution to the problem. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

I appreciate your post, Lee Silvey!
I understand that your Frigidaire dehumidifier, FDL70S1, will only work in continuous mode. Sounds like you could have a possible issue with the sensor or control panel. Are you under warranty? I would advise you to speak with your manufacturer to see if any further resolution can be provided. -Matt

Hello - Typically error code F2 indicates a sensor failed has occurred on the dehumidifier. You may want to contact your manufacturer to verify if the part is available and can be replace. Some do, some don't. Also confirm if the unit has a limited warranty on such concern.
