New Frigidaire FAD704DWD Dehumidifier Spits Water From Top Vent

A couple of hours after we started up our new dehumidifier, it started spitting water from the air vent on top of the machine. There was about three inches of water in the bucket. We emptied it and restarted the machine. The spitting started again. Basement temperature of 54 degrees is within machine's operating limits. Is there a blockage somewhere? Should we just take it back to the store?

SOURCE: Water bucket - proper seating

Try re-seating the bucket. I have found some LG models that if not seated all of the way will sometimes keep running and think the bucket is not full even when it is. On the models that I have seen do it the problem is usually the left side of the bucket not engaging all of the way. When you reseat the bucket, feel where the bucket meets the dehumidifier on each side and make sure they are even. If one feels like it is sticking out further than the other and you cannot push it in any more pull the bucket out and try and reseat it again until both sides are flush with the dehumidifier. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.

Thanks - Tech101

By your model number...
I bounce off of a lot of other (subsequent models (I presume))...

But your model does NOT resolve to any serious parts
USA domestic suppliers... not even good drawings!!

I tried appliancepartspros, easyapplianceparts, repairclinic, partsselect & searspartsdirect.com

Got spanked pretty good... Looked at related circuit boards... but none had any significant detail to determine a THERMISTER
FROM... Do not match

Time to get the ACTUAL NUMBERS OFF OF your thermistor...
and go to electronic houses... eBay, grainger... even RadioShack

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?

It collects some water but it also spits water out


The dehumidifier has a non-removable tray under the coils (they look like radiators) that collects and drains the water away. If the tray or drain gets clogged with dirt or slime the water doesn't drain away well. Some water is picked up by the fan and is blown out the vent. Take the covers off the machine and give everything a good cleaning. If you get water on any electrical parts, let the machine dry thoroughly before plugging in.
