    I believe they mean ICE, Mike; while a little frost may be normal, mine had virtually none, and was working GREAT until about a week ago. Now out of nowhere, afer several minutes, there's hard ICE on the coils...and - once that happens - not "a drop (of water) in the bucket!"

MIKE - I have the same problem...previously, there was NEVER any frost, and the unit worked just fine. Now, all of a sudden in the last week, frost has been forming...water no longer traverses thru the tube into the sink...and the unit is basically useless/

I think when the original person said "frost", they meant ICE!

SOURCE: Dehumidifier frosting up

I have the same problem under 5 year warranty. The Authorized May Tag Dealer (Stan & Pauls), advised that they were unable to duplicate the condition. I then took it home, let it run for several hours and brought it to them with the Evaperator completely frozen in ice. They then ran it in their shop and stated that it will not freeze their. It is interesting to note that this model is supposed to detect, icing and shut the compressor off and turn the fan on high for a while. Evidently this feature does not work on mine and can not be repaired. No more Maytags for me.

SOURCE: The coils on my dehumidifier are frosting over.

Are the coils clean? If it has a filter is it clean? If yes to both, it has lost (leaked) refrigerant and it's time to buy a new dehumidifier. If the leak can be found it probably wouldn't be repairable and would cost more to fix than it's worth.

Why does Frigidaire dehumidifier LAD704DUL has ice on the coils?


Hello Friend, thank you for your question!

I see that you have frost accumulating on the coils of your Frigidaire dehumidifier, LAD704DUL. Typically frost appears on coils either because your dehumidifier has been turned on recently or the room temperature is too low. Sometimes this is normal due to refrigerant rushing through the coils and usually it disappears within 60 minutes. However, if your dehumidifier is not removing moisture, then at this point your dehumidifier may possibly been experiencing a sealed system issue. Is your appliance still in warranty? If so, you might want to reach out directly to the manufacturer to determine the coverage on your dehumidifier and the procedures to any potential remedy in that regard. Hope this helps! - Z

What can I do to prevent my Dehumidifier from building up a heavy coating of frost over all the condensing tubes. The dehumidifier is currently located in the basement.


The frost is requried for the unit to do it's work. The unit should routinely turn off and the ice should melt. without this process no water would be removed from the air....

My dehu has frost on coils most of the the


if the room air is cooler than the dehumidifier then they will frost over. normally frosting over means loss of freon but because it is a closed system there probably isn't. if the air's moisture level [humidity] is low then don't even run the machine.

Most dehumidifiers have a "Frost Guard" mounted on the condensor coil. If frost accumulates on the condensor coil the frost guard turns the compressor off until the frost melts, then comes back on again. For the dehumidifier to work properly, the surrounding (ambient), temperature must be higher than 65 degress. This temperature allows the moisture in the air to condense on the coils and drip into the reservoir without freezing up on the condensor coil. Also, if the humidity is too low, (below 45%), the same condition will occur. So it will help to keep the parameters in mind when you have this issue.

Thank you for your allowing me to advise you on this issue.
