I have a LAD704DUL frigidaire dehumidifier that will not shut off after being shut off, and not until the plug is pulled. Is this worth getting fixed


Dear Peter Nicolle,

according to the user manual the dehumidifier will not stop running for the following 5 reasons:

  • Windows or doors near dehumidifier are open to outdoors.
  • Area to be dehumidified is too large.
  • Air movement through dehumidifier is blocked.
  • Dehumidifier has been installed or restarted recently.
  • Dehumidifier is in the CONTINUOUS mode.
You can find more information on the user manual on page 9 under the category DEHUMIDIFIER RUNS TOO MUCH.

Dehumidifier freezes up


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FDF50S, is freezing up. I see that the compressor does not shut off, causing ice to build up on the coils, rather than water draining off. What can cause this is your dehumidifier has been turned on recently. This is normal due to refrigerant rushing through the coil. Frost will usually disappear within 60 minutes. Another cause is if the room temperature is too low or too high. Your appliance is designed to operate between 41 degrees F and 96 degrees F. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. 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. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Why compressor comes on for a second then shuts off


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that the compressor on your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD504TDD, comes on for a second and then shuts off. First, make sure that when you are first turning your dehumidifier on that you put it in continuous mode. After about 3 days of continuous mode, set your appliance to the humidity level you would like. Secondly, the "Compressor" circuit has an automatic 3 minute time delayed start if the unit is turned off and on quickly. This prevents overheating of the compressor and possible circuit breaker tripping. Thirdly, make sure the tank is fitted correctly otherwise your dehumidifier will not turn on. Lastly, make sure your dehumidifier has sufficient clearance to operate. There should be a minimum of 12 inches clearance around your dehumidifier. 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 dehumidifier status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

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.

Fridigaire dehumidifier compressor gets very hot and no water in bucket


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that the compressor is getting very hot and there is no water in the bucket of your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# LAD704TDL. I would check to make sure that your dehumidifier has enough ventilation. There should be a minimum of 12 inches clearance around your dehumidifier. Also, make sure that it is neither too hot, nor too cold where you have placed your dehumidifier. Your appliance is designed to operate between 41 degrees Fahrenheit and 96 degrees Fahrenheit. 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 dehumidifier status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

The unit turns on compressor and the fan after awhile the fan turns off and compressor still on.


Sounds like it is a bad fan or bearings. Try shutting off the unit as soon as the fan shuts off and see if the fan turns freely. If not, the fan bearings need lubrication or replacement. If they are not serviceable, you will need to replace the entire fan.

When turn off. makes a humming sound. compressor seems to be running.


Have same issue with 3 year old Frigidaire dehumidifier purchased in 2012. Must unplug to stop compressor running with power switch turned off. Unit gets hot and smells. Unplugging creates arcs at outlet since unit is pulling a lot of power. Plugging back in after some hours will make it appear to run normally and again remove moisture but it will not shut off when the fan goes off (humidistat bad?) and the set-point is reached. Cannot leave plugged in due to safetty/fire/overheating concern. Have not found answer on this forum or any other so far.

Your dehumidifier may be low on refrigerant. Seems cold may not be cold enough to reach the dew point to condense moisture from the air stream.
