Question about Frigidaire FAD704DWD 70 Pint/Day Energy Star Dehumidifier w/ 16.3 Pint Tank Capacity, Up to 194 CFM, 115V, 2 Speeds, Antibacterial Mesh Filter, Auto Shut Off, Effortless Humidity Control, Full Tank Alert, Continuous Drain Option & Portable Design

1 Answer

I have a FAD 704 DWD, does it not have a power on light? I called for a question regarding a different issue and the service tech said it was very bad to not have the on light "on".

I called the support line and they told me that because the light was not on by where it says on, that is very bad. The unit had the power on and it was running. Why would the tech say this?

Thank you for your inquiry, Lisa Cooper!

I understand that the power light on your Frigidaire dehumidifier is not showing you the power light is on. It sounds like you could have an issue with your control panel. If your dehumidifier is running it could be that the light has failed. If you have a current warranty I would reach out to your manufacturer to see if they have a resolution for such an issue. Hopefully this helps. -Matt

EC appears and it doesn't draw water

I contacted CE North America customer service regarding this issue for same unit. They suggested disconnecting for 10 minutes, then reconnecting, turning unit on, and changing settings and run fan on HIGH or TURBO until the EC code goes away. This didn't help with my unit. If this doesn't work, there is no repair provided. Customer Service recommended returning unit to purchase location if under warranty (1 year), however a copy of the original purchase receipt is required. Suggest a call to Customer Service Center at 866-915-1212.

I have a Danby DDR583R. I can no longer read the LED display. I contacted Danby and they told me to replace the LED. But I cannot even figure out how to remove it. Advice please? It is environmentally...

The most prudent thing to do, is call Danby back and ask for Tech Services. Then it's in their lap, to tell you how to safely remove it. I will say, the last time I check on the price of a Control Panel Display @ Appliance Parts is was almost $100.00. So, I wouldn't call it a cheap component..

The fan runs, but we get an A5 error.

I think what you're actually seeing is an AS error. It's looks like A5 on the LED screen.
AS error means their is a sensor failure. So, before calling Frigidaire Tech Service
(800-444-4944), turn the Master On/Off Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit for 12 - 15 minutes.
This should give the unit ample time to reset itself. Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/Off Switch to ON. Now, set your controls as you normally do. If the unit starts up and runs as it should, the problem for now is solved. If it keeps re-occurring, contact Frigidaire Tech Service.

Not accumulating water and condensation on top

Your unit is low on freon from a sealed system leak. The sealed system should have a 5 year warranty. You need an authorized LG tech to write it up for an exchange. Check your manual and call an LG service dealer.

How to fix dehumidifier condenser won't start

That's your compressor. (the condenser is the tubing just after the compressor) First, make sure you are not using an extention cord, or if you do, make sure it is a heavy enough cord. Low voltage can cause your problem, do to a light extention cord use. Second, you may have a bad relay. (inside the box on the side of the compressor) Third, your compressor may be bad. They can be direct tested with a compressor test cord by a service tech that knows what they are doing. Bad compressor = get a new dehumidifier (too expensive to replace).
