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

Frigidaire 70 pint dehumidifier model # LAd704TDK filter looks to have frozen or clogged, how to remove filter to check for problems?


Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Remove the water collection bucket and set aside. At the top of the bucket holder, just behind the louvers you should see a plastic pull tab, which is part of the filter frame. If you have never removed the filter before, there may be a piece of plastic tape on the filter frame. It was put there for shipping. Remove and discard it. Pull straight down on the plastic tab and remove the filter. It can be cleaned by vacuuming it or if it's really dirty, wash it in with warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly, shake off access water and allow to completely dry, before reinstalling it. Never operate the unit without the filter in place, as doing so could cause damage to the unit. The filter should be removed and cleaned once every two weeks.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Just wondering if this unit has a filter or filters that need to be changed?? (Frigidaire 70)


Yes, your unit has an air filter, that should be removed and cleaned at least once every two weeks, while in operation, The filter is located behind the louvers on the front of the unit. To access and remove it, remove the water bucket and just inside the bucket holder at the top of the opening, you will see a tab type of handle. This handle is part of the filter frame. Pull that down and out and the filter will come with it. Back flush the filter with clear warm water. Dry it thoroughly, before reinstalling it in the unit. Never operate the dehumidifier without the filter installed.

To assist you further, in case you have misplaced your Owner's Manual, I have included a link to the Manual for your model. You can download and print the manual for future reference.
