    SOURCE: I have a frigidaire LAD704DUL 70 pint dehumidifier. Last year it worked great. This year, it has not collected any water in the bucket. The motor runs, it is on CO setting but still no water. I have c

    If you have a dehumidifier that is not producing any water then you are wondering what you need to do to get this thing to work for you. In some cases you may be able to do something and in other situations there may be nothing that you can do.

    If you do not hear the compressor running and the unit says that the humidity in the room is higher then the setting, then you have a problem with your dehumidifier.

    A few things that can cause this are:

    The circuit board relay has gone bad...replacement of this board will often cost more then a new unit. This also is a very common problem with many dehumidification units.

    The compressor has failed...if you hear a buzz for a few seconds, every few minutes, then you have a bad compressor or at least bad start components on the compressor. Either way it again is a costly repair.

    If the compressor is running and the coils are not getting cold then you have a refrigeration system leak. Recharging or fixing these units is very difficult and is another costly venture compared to the price of a new dehumidifier.

    If the compressor is running but the fan is not, this also will cause low water production and continual freezing of the coil.

    If the compressor and the fan are running but the coil is totally blocked then you will get no water production. Air needs to be continually moved over the cold coil to get the water out of the air.

    If nothing is running, then you may also have a control board failure. Or the humidity sensor or humidistat has gone bad which tells the machine to run. If the sensor says that the humidity is low enough then it will never run.

    Also if nothing is running check the float switch or the bucket switch. Many of these switches are very touchy and if you do not have the bucket in place just exactly right it will not trip the switch to allow the unit to run. These switches often are more fragile then they should be and break easily. The good thing is that when available they are easy to replace and relatively inexpensive.

    There are some parts available for a few brands, but with the prices for most of the parts that you can replace running anywhere from 40.00 - 80.00 dollars, replacement parts with labor to install them, makes a repair more then the few hundred dollar cost of many of these dehumidifiers.

    As you can see there are quite a few things that can cause your dehumidifier not to work. Systematically go through the list and eliminate things to get to the bottom of the issue causing your problem and then decide if it is worth spending the money to try to fix the old unit. Only you can make that decision.

      If the unit is not running fully, but you have this noise, sounds like the internal fan might be the culprit. Contact your manufacturer for further options.

      Is there a recall on Frigidaire dehumidifier Model FAD504DUD

      Some dehumidifiers with the model number, FAD504DUD, are subject to a recall. Record the serial number and then go to to check if your unit was manufactured in the bad batch.

      Without the serial number, I can't be sure if your unit is in the 2016 recall. For details, you can look at .

      I hope this helps.

      Dehumidifier seems to be running fine, but water leaking on floor even with minimal water accumulated in bucket?

      Hey friend, thanks for your post!

      It sounds like your dehumidifier needs to be professionally cleaned. What could be causing the problem is a buildup on the inside of your dehumidifier where the water drains out and it is causing the water to not drain properly. Additionally, I would check to verify that the drain hole is tightly secured with the plug. I know you stated that the bucket is not leaking but have you removed it to verify? Please comment back if further assist is needed. -Matt

      Why is my Frigidaire dehumidifier leaking water from the bottom of the unit?

      Hi friend, thank you for your post!

      I have identified that a few possibilities to why water is leaking from the bottom of your dehumidifier could be a crack inside your bucket or condensation from the bucket. I would remove your bucket and look it over to see if you can locate any visible cracks or chips. How much water is leaking from your dehumidifier? If you can provide any further information I look forward to assisting you. -Matt

      Why does Frigidaire dehumidifier FAD704DWD send water outside unit?

      Good Afternoon Friend,

      I understand that your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD704DWD, is putting the water that it collects out onto the floor as oppose to the bucket. I suggest contacting the manufacturer for more information. They should be able to point you in the right direction for assistance. Hope this is helpful.

      Why freezes up?

      Good Afternoon Friend,

      I understand that your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD504DUD, is freezing up. First, if your dehumidifier has been turned on recently, this is normal due to refrigerant rushing through the coil. Frost will usually disappear within 60 minutes. Secondly, make sure the room temperature is above 41 degrees Fahrenheit. If it is too cold in the room, the coils can freeze. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully.

      -Best Regards-

      Why does blower wheel stop on Frigidaire dehumdifier?

      Good Afternoon Desi,

      I understand that the blower wheel is not spinning on your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD504DUD. I also see that the compressor will stay on unless the dehumidifier is unplugged. I suggest you contact the manufacturer for further assistance. They can possibly clarify why the compressor stays on and why the blower fan is not working. If not, they should at least be able to point you in the right direction of having your dehumidifier working. Hope this is helpful.

      How to clean the filter

      Good Afternoon Tad, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

      First remove the bucket to reach the filter of your Frigidaire dehumidifier, FAD504DUD. When you locate the filter, pull it downwards. The filter can be clean by either washing it with clean water or using a vacuum cleaner extension hose. If you use clean water, please allow the filter to dry. Once the filter is reinstalled then replace the bucket. To extinguish the light simply press the FILTER button and your dehumidifier will resume normal operations.

      Hope this helps!
