The humidity sensor is usually in the front of the unit take the front housing off look for a small long sensor and clean it off it may just be contaminated with dirt so on.

SOURCE: The room my dehumidifier is in stays 80 degrees

A dehumidfier works by heat, so it puts out a lot of heat that is exhausted back into the room. An air conditioner works with heat also and it also takes the humidity out of the air, BUT it exhaust to the outside.

SOURCE: What setting should I set my dehumidifier for %

THE LOWER THE % SETTING, THE MORE MOISTURE THE DEHUMIDIFIER WILL REMOVE!!!
I have a Provic dehumidifier mainly to remove damp from walls in my 1900s terraced house ( 3rd DPC failed, another on its way). I've read a lot about the technical side and all I wanted to know was 'do i set it on the highest or lowest % to extract moisture from the walls'. I rang the Managing Director at Provic (his contact details are given on their website) who was very helpful. He advised that the lower the setting, the more damp would be removed from the walls and therefore the air, as the water passes from the wall into the air. My DH ranges from 40% to 70% so he advised me to set it at 40% in the worst affected room to remove as much moisture as possible from the walls. As the moisture is removed, the DH will collect less water and set itself to the correct level anyway. He advised me that when as much water as possible has been removed from this room and the DH % will not drop any lower, to move it to a more central position in the house, such as the hallway to then start setting the rest of the house to the correct humidity level. I set the DH to 40% and left it on overnight closing all doors to the affected room and removing containers of water such as a vase of flowers. When I got up in the morning it had switched itself off as it had already collected 3 litres of water! You do have to be careful not to over dry the air as everything, furniture and electricals, naturally needs moisture, but for a short term, quick drying solution, this level is ok.
Hope this helps!

Frigidaire dehumidifier has an error code of EC and does not take in any water. The temp in the basement is a constant 68 degrees.


First, I'm not a Frigidaire tech.
* Check your warranty. Call for service.
* Contact (note Live Chat link); https://www.frigidaire.com/Owner-Center/Contact-Us/
*** following is for information only ***
* Checking basic problems; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXJrVGP_Ixs
* The humidifier will only run if the "Humidity" (water or moisture in the air) is higher than the current setting on the humidifier. If it's set to maximum dry setting then expect it to run almost 100% of the time. If it is set to a "wet" setting then expect it run only for short periods.
* Colder room temperatures will reduce the frequency of cycles as cold air will hold less moisture than warm air.
* You may note that running a AC unit in the same room as the dehumidifier will give you mixed results as both units will "fight" or work against each other. Humidifier will heat the air as it exits while the AC will cool the air. Best to not run the AC while the dehumidifier is in operation.
* Note that AC do "dehumidify" the air as it passes through. But not as effective as a dedicated dehumidifier.
* Be sure to check the tub and filter (make sure they are seated properly.)
* Contact Frigidaire or your local Appliance store for service.

Dehumidifier freezing up


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FDL25P1, is freezing up. First, if your dehumidifier has been turned on recently. This is normal due to refrigerant rushing through the coil. Frost will usually disappear within 60 minutes. Secondly, make sure the room temperature is above 41 degrees Fahrenheit. If it is too cold in the room, the coils can freeze. 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.

Dehumidifier freezes up


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# LAD704TDL, is freezing up. If you have turned on your dehumidifier recently, this is normal due to refrigerant rushing through the coil. Frost will usually disappear within 60 minutes. Try starting your dehumidifier on a slower fan setting. Another possibility is that the room temperature is too low or too high. Your appliance is designed to operate between 41 degrees F (5 degrees C), and 96 degrees F (35 degrees C). 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 air conditioner status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

My Frigidaire dehumidifier model FDL70S1has an error code "A5" My coils keep freezing up as well with heavy ice. It has worked fine in the same spot in the basement for two years until last week....


All most all dehumidifiers have a defrost cycle to take care of this problem. However, yours is either not working or the air intake filter is clogged, which makes the unit strain to keep up. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit, before attempting to remove the filter. Allow the unit to thaw while it's unplugged. Once it's completely thawed, plug the unit back in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls as you normally do. Within in an hour or two, you will know if this solved the problem. Also, keep in mind, dehumidifiers are designed only to work in temperatures above 41 degrees. If it's below that where you have the unit, that will cause it to freeze up.

With all that said, what you're seeing as the Error Code is in fact, AS (the 'S' looks a lot like a 5 on the LED screen) It indicates a Sensor Failure. In your case, it's more than likely the Defrost Cycle Sensor. The Owners Manual says "Contact your local Authorized Frigidaire Service Center, if this happens. I'm hoping that cleaning the filter (if needed) and allowing the unit to reset itself (while it's OFF & Unplugged) will solve the problem. But, it may only be a band aide fix.

Hope this helped you.

Why would it not take water out of the air, it runs so long it creates ice on the outside of it. With no water in the bucket. its in the Basement its 52 degrees and the humidie is 84. what can i do to...


Room must be above 60.

If the room temperature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket.
I out mine over the floor drain.
Turn off and it will defrost over night.
Only specially made dehumidifiers work below a room temp of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter).
Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensor from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.

Frigidaire Dehumidifier gives F2 error code and no longer runs.


F1 is room temperarure sensor error. F2 is tube temperature sensor error.

The room sensor usually is located in the front of the condenser. The tube sensor is usually plugged in a tube near the condensor.

The tube temperature sensor (thermistor) should be about 10K ohms.
