Question about Frigidaire Dehumidifiers

Open Question

My Frigidaire FDL70S1 dehumidifier no longer removes moisture from the air. It runs continuously for several hours until it blows a circuit. It used to work. I bought a new one and it works quite well. Not sure what is wrong with this older one, it is only 14 months old.

I have a Frigidaire dehumidifer model FDL70S1 that wont stay running for more than 3 minutes and then it shuts the fan off, but still has power to the unit.


Hi lynn crisp, thanks for your post!

From my understanding you are having a challenging time with your Frigidaire dehumidifier shutting too quickly. It sounds like a possible problem with your sensor or control panel. Are you currently under warranty? I would contact your manufacturer for assistance to a proper resolution. -Matt

I have a FDL70S1 Frigidaire 70 pint dehumiifer that runs for 3 minutes then shuts off. I have tried to set the timer for it to run longer but it wont. Do you know what is wrong with it?


Hello lynn crisp, thank you for your post!

From what you have explained regarding your Frigidaire dehumidifier it sounds like the sensor or control panel has become faulty. I would recommend resetting your dehumidifier and you can do that by unplugging the power cord for ten minutes. Is your dehumidifier under warranty? If so, you may want to reach out to the manufacturer for a resolution to the problem. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

I appreciate your post, Lee Silvey!

I understand that your Frigidaire dehumidifier, FDL70S1, will only work in continuous mode. Sounds like you could have a possible issue with the sensor or control panel. Are you under warranty? I would advise you to speak with your manufacturer to see if any further resolution can be provided. -Matt

Removing the filter model fdl7051


Hello Friend, this is Z. Thank you for allowing me to assist you!

You would need to remove the bucket to locate the filter of your Frigidaire dehumidifier (FDL70S1). Then pull the filter downwards for cleaning. 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 and typically the FILTER REST light will illuminate after 250 hours of operation. Hope this helps!

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.

-Best Regards-

I have a 2 year old Frigidaire dehumidifier model FDM7051 and this summer when I turned it on it runs continuously with the fan moving normal amounts of air. The air filter and coils are clean and I have...


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.

Have model FDL70S1 that is hooked up to a hose into a drain. For some reason now it is collecting in the bucket and shutting off once the bucket is full instead of going down the hose. Any ideas to help?


It is possible that your hose has a build up of algea in it that has started to jell. The water you are removing from the air is very pure and allows this growth. I would remove the hose and clean by blowing through it or hooking it up to faucet and flush it out. If you can get it open then running a cup of bleach thru it on a regular basis will stop this from happening again.

Dont spend to much time trying to repair dehumidifier they are very cheap to replace. Most dehumidifiers have lots of problems because they are made so cheap. Just replace the dehumidifier you will tank me in the end.
