20 Most Recent Frigidaire FDL45P1 Dehumidifier Questions & Answers


Don, this is JK. I understand you are having concerns with your dehumidifier. Because this is a smaller appliance, we have limited spare parts available. Repairs for this size appliance are often more costly than the actual unit replacement. Is your appliance still in warranty? If so, you might want to reach out directly to the manufacturer to determine the coverage on your dehumidifier and the procedures to any potential remedy in that regard.
Hope this helps!

Hi! Same thing just happened to me. There's a black plug in the back that just pulls off. It's no bigger than a dime. Once I pulled that off some water came out, not that much but enough to get my machine working. Hope that helps!

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.

Hello,

problem should be from the sensor assembly.

Try feeling both sides of the outside of the bucket and make sure the bucket is flush with the dehumidifier. If one side is sticking out more than the other it may not be engaged correctly which will cause a full bucket notification. If everything checks out okay, then try taking the bucket out and push in on the button that the lever from the bucket engages on at the dehumidifier. If the light turns off after you push on the red button that means the bucket is not engaging correctly. If the red light stays on and it doesn't make a difference then the button sensor may be defective.

Regards.

The hose of the hose connector on the unit may be clogged. When this happens, water is diverted to the bucket.

Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Disconnect the hose from the unit and check the hose for a clog. If none is found, the clog is in the hose connection tubing, inside the dehumidifier. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tire or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though). Insert the tip of the Zip Tie into the hole and continue to push it in, until you reach a bend in the tubing. Gingerly work it past this bend, until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then pull the Zip Tie out slowly while rotating (twisting) it. This will dislodge any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie be prepared, as some water may follow. Reattach the hose, plug the unit in and turn it ON. Set the humidity extraction level at 35% and monitor the hose for water running out. Be sure the hose is no longer than 5 feet and is sloped downward to the floor drain. As drainage relies on gravity.

I hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.
