Don, unless your dehumidifier is a Low temperature model, that very well may be the problem.
The air temp in a basement at floor level is colder than that chest level. Dehumidifiers don't work well at temperatures at 40 degrees F or less. Raising the unit up off the floor on to a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that is strong enough to handle it's weight, plus a full tank of water, will generally solve the problem. The higher up you can safely put it, the better. Also, lower the humidity extraction level to 35%. As 50% is just not low enough in a basement application.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem.

    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.

    Frigidaire FDL50s1 runs continuously but will not collect water. What could be the problem & can it be fixed?


    Thank you for your post, K!

    I understand that your Frigidaire dehumidifier is continuously running and it is not collecting water. This can be caused by a dirty filter. A dirty filter can restrict air flow which will allow your dehumidifier to not pull in air. I would recommend checking your filter to make sure it is clean.

    Frost on the coils within your dehumidifier will also cause your dehumidifier to stop working as well. You should check to make sure that there is not frost visible on your dehumidifier. If you do locate frost you would need to perform a manual defrost on your dehumidifier and you can do that by disconnecting power from it for at least two to three hours.

    If these steps do not resolve your issue you may need to reach out to the manufacturer for a proper resolution. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

    Hello Winl, thank you for your inquiry!

    I see that you are having issues with your clean filter light coming on in your Frigidaire dehumidifier. From what you are describing it sounds like a possible issue with a sensor within your dehumidifier. I would recommend consulting with your manufacturer to see if they can provide any additional assistance towards a resolution. Best of luck! -OOS

    What should I do when the air filter light comes on?


    Good Afternoon Friend, that's a great question!

    Typically the FILTER RESET light will illuminate after 250 hours of operation. To locate the filter, remove the bucket and the pull filter downwards. The filter can be clean by using clean water or vacuum cleaner extension hose. If you use clean water, please allow the filter to dry. Once you reinstalled the filter then replace the bucket. To extinguish the light simply press the FILTER button and your dehumidifier should resume normal operations. Remember it is best to clean your filter every two weeks based on normal operating conditions. Hope this helps! - Z

    When turned off, makes a humming sound which it never did before. Can I ignore or do I need to fix some?


    Good Afternoon Friend,

    I understand your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD704TDP, is making a humming sound, when it is turned off. I also see that you have tried cleaning the filter and grill already, and want to know if there you should be concerned about this. You should not be alarmed by this. Providing, your dehumidifier is doing what it is supposed to do, and is taking moisture from the air, your appliance sounds like it is working fine. Hope this is helpful.
