You need to determine what's "running". Here's why: There are three things that must be working to extract water. The 'coil' (a finned metal part that needs air to flow across its surface) may be filled with dust and obstructions, so no air can move...then no water. There is a blower motor that must move the air. If it is seized up and not blowing air...very little or no water. The compressor creates condensation from air moving across the coil (like the moisture than forms on an ice filled glass on a humid day) to extract the water from the air. If it's not working then no water.
So, if there is air blowing out of the dehumidifier the blower is working. If the air is room temp the compressor is not working. If it's real hot air, and the humidifier keeps cycling on and off quickly, the coil is dirty. Those are the 3 things that need to be working.

This happens quite frequently. It''s due to a clog in the hose or the a clog in the hose connection tubing. If you unit has a float valve in the top of the bucket, be sure that it's not stuck in the UP position. To resolve clogging problem, do the following:

1. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Disconnect the hose from the unit
and check for clogs and remove them if necessary.

2. If no clogs were found in the hose, the clog is in the hose connection tubing. Use and 18"
long, plastic ZIP Tie, appropriately sized to fit in the hose connector tubing. Carefully insert the
Zip Tie or something similar (NO Wire coat hangers, though) into the hole and continue to push
it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work it past this bend, until
the ZIP Tie either bottoms out or you run out of usable ZIP Tie. Then while rotating (Twisting) the
ZIP Tie slowly pull it out. As you reach the inserted end of the ZIP Tie, be prepared for some
water to follow.

That should solve the problem. Be sure the hose is no longer than 5 feet and that it slopes downward from the unit, with no kinks in it.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know, Thanks.

How to adjust water level in the bucket , it's so high that it's difficult to remove without spills


There's usually a float that senses the level of the water so it shuts the unit off. Perhaps the float arm got bent at some time. I would try to re-position ( lower) the float arm, to adjust the water level.

The bucket fills up but we have to put a towel down because it leaks all over the floor. What could be wrong ?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the bucket fills with water and overflows on your Frigidaire dehumidifier, model# FAD704DUD. Please make sure your dehumidifier is installed on a level that will support it with a full bucket of water. If the dehumidifier is moving when it fills with water then this could possibly be the cause of the bucket overflowing. 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. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-
