Question about Frigidaire FAD704TDD Dehumidifier

1 Answer

I am not sure of the exact model number, but the unit is rated for 70 pints. It shutdowns and lights the full bucket lamp, but the bucket is not full (there is a hose attached). I dis-assembled the unit and disconnected the bucket water switch and it still shuts down after just a couple of minutes. I would liek to get a schematic for further troubleshooting, but without the exact model that might be a problem. Any suggestions. Thank you for your time.

The problem is that the hose connection tube that the hose is connected to, is clogged. That's the reason water was going to the bucket and the full bucket sensor was shutting the unit OFF

To unclog the tube, you will need an 18" long Plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO Wire Coat Hangers, though) that is appropriately sized to fit into the hole. Before doing anything, Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit.

Carefully insert the Zip Tie into the hose connection hole/tubing and continue to gently push it in, until it reaches the bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work past this bend, until it bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Now, slowly remove it, while rotating it. This will dislodge the clog. As the Zip Tie is almost totally removed, be prepared for some water to follow.

The above should solve your problem. Will you still need the wiring schematic to reconnect the bucket safety switch? If so, please let me know.

    The bucket did not have water in it, so I think I am still dealing with an electrical problem. Yes I would like to have teh schematic.

    Thank You

    Before you do anything else electrical, that could void any warranty you may have ... try unclogging the drain tube first. The following is the link to the wiring diagram. You will have to copy and paste it into your web browser. http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_p...

Why does Frigidaire dehumidifier send water outside bucket?


Good Afternoon Jean,

I understand that your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD704DWD, is putting the water that it collects out onto the floor as oppose to the bucket. I suggest contacting the manufacturer for more information. They should be able to point you in the right direction for assistance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Water is going on the floor not into catch bucket


If it is level then there is probably something in the unit diverting the water to the wrong place or the bucket is not installed properly. I assume the bucket is not leaking.

Also, make sure the unit is higher than the drain and that the hose is not kinked or clogged.

Please rate 4 stars if this is helpful. Thanks and good luck!

Haier 45-pint dehumidifier unit cannot be turned on. It has been running fine last few days.


The first thing that comes to mind, is have you emptied the water collection bucket recently? If so, be sure that the bucket was properly reinstalled and is making contact with the bucket safety removal switch.

If you haven't emptied the bucket in the past few days, it may simply be full and will not start until it's emptied.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Power lose


I have a 45 pint. I have to slide the bucket in and out of the unit multiple times. Make sure to wait a few seconds after each time to see if it will recognize no water (sometimes the red light comes on, but then changes it mind). Also, I've found that leaving the bucket a little crooked will make it respond. It sucks, I know. Mine is only a year old too. Should not be a problem like this!
