Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Failed within 1 year

Unit Failed 9/10/2021

I purchased this model FGAC5044W1 with wifi, in July 2020. The dehumidifier worked fine, but starting in May 2021 the unit would not stay connected to my wifi. Working with customer support over many, many calls and emails, they provided updates to the app and the firmware in the unit. It would connect intermittently but never reliably and finally not at all. So this defeated the whole purpose of monitoring it while I was away, but at least the unit itself worked. But then in August 2021, just 3 months later, the unit displayed an EC code and stopped working completely. Customer support said the EC code indicated a closed-system failure and a new unit would be required. They would not replace the unit as it was now out of the 1 yr warranty period. They offered a 70% rebate on a replacement unit but why would I purchase again when the unit and wifi failed so quickly. They refused to provide a free replacement unit or refund my purchase. In addition customer service, although polite, is extremely hard to reach. They no longer take calls and everything is done by email. I assume they are having many problems with these new units and would not recommend purchasing one at this time.

I had purchased a different brand and it did not do the job! This High Humidity, Wi-Fi capable, high capacity not only does the job; its made my basement cooler! Which is imperative! I own my families Vanilla business!! RUBY'S PURE VANILLA have been Making Vanilla since 1885! Humidity could destroy the Vanilla beans we get in from Madagascar and Mexico. Thank you! Perfection!

Jon71 8/28/2021

My other De-humidifier (Friedrich) had a safety recall on it and after much research, I chose the Frigidaire Unit. I have 1 suggestion...Instead of having the room humidity display only in 5% increments, provide an option for 1% increments...then you would know if you are getting close to your setting....THANKS FOR A GREAT PRODUCT...!!!

notveryhappy1 8/26/2021

Just received this a few days ago and still can't use it. It leaks! Removed and reinstalled the cap on the drain outlet, made sure it is on tight, and it still leaks. It didn't come with any gaskets so I bought one for the cap - still leaks! Can't get customer service on the phone so here I am.

Great Dehumidifier

WelcomedRain 8/24/2021

I use this dehumidifier in my finished basement. It is always in automatic mode to keep the humidity down and I particularly appreciate being able to see its run state and control it remotely with my phone. I've had the non-wifi version of this dehumidifier for the past year and it has served me well.

Very happy with my Frigidaire 50 Pint Dehumidifier with Wi-Fi

Alan1001 8/3/2021

I purchased a Frigidaire dehumidifier over a year ago and was very satisfied with its performance. Humidify levels drop quickly when the unit is used. However, this spring it failed to work and I contacted Frigidaire to determine how best to get it serviced. Frigidaire sent me a replacement humidifier that I liked even better than the original. With such great support from this company I purchased a second humidifier for my up-north cabin. This new unit has a Wi-Fi connection which allows me to check humidity levels and control all of the unit's functions from home. I have used both systems now for over a month and I am very pleased with how well they work. I especially like the Wi-Fi connection that allows me to know that my up-north system is functioning well. Frigidaire dehumidifiers are easy to install and very simple to setup. I highly recommend them.

Very quiet and extremely effective

Big Mike T 8/2/2021

I have had this dehumidifier for a couple weeks and it far surpasses the moisture removal effectiveness of the older unit (by another manufacturer) that it replaced. I use it in a 1,500 sq. ft. finished basement and it easily keeps the humidity at 40 to 45%. The bucket fills almost daily so I have added a garden hose instead. The only drawback is the app which works fine but lacks features other than basic controls; but it is better than no remote control at all.

I purchased the item about 1 month ago. I have to empty it twice a day. I am surprised how much it is pulling from the air. I am using it on my second floor and it is keeping the humidity at 45-50%. The ease of setting it to run is very good. I particularly like the handle and wheels on the unit, and the handle on the water reservoir.

I bought the predecessor 50 pint machine, and it functioned for only about 8 months!!! This in unacceptable, especially for the cost of the machine. I have another dehumidifier by another brand, and it still works after 15 years... I thought Frigidaire could do better...When I tried to speak with customer service, I was on hold for 38 minutes, and then it hung up on me....

degolden999 7/24/2021

I bought this dehumidifier for my basement. I was concerned it may not be powerful enough but it has reduced the RH to 45%. I recommend getting the WiFi capability as you can monitor and change settings wherever you are. Also being able to attach a hose for the drain makes the unit almost maintenance free so you don™€™t have to empty the bucket. Powerful machine with lots of useful features. I highly recommend this product.

Excellent dehumidifier

VC2021 7/19/2021

We previously had a Frigidaire dehumidifier and were very pleased with it. So when it needed replacing after 4 years, we bought a replacement Frigidaire dehumidifier. The 50-pint model works for our entire townhome. We appreciate having dual options of either attaching a hose for continuous operation or relying on the unit to signal us when the bucket is full. This dehumidifier keeps our house much more comfortable, especially in these unusually hot summer temperatures in 2021.

I had my Sears dehumidifier fail a few weeks ago and I wanted a replacement I could control with my iPhone. This unit delivers big-time. Not only does it do a great job controlling the humidity level in my 2,700 square foot basement, but using the app to control all the functions and monitor humidity levels is a great feature. The unit is also very quiet!

Frigidaire review

Kiddie 7/12/2021

This humidifier works well but I hope it lasts longer than my last Frigidaire.It lasted only 4 years. It was difficult too connect to WIFI. The WIFI app should show whether the machine is actually on. It shows the room humidity but not whether the machine is running or in stand by. It does a good job of removing the humidity in the room..

I specifically sought out this model because of its capacity, 50 pints, and the wifi capability. Once I was able to hook up the hose drain, it's all good to go. I am taking the humidity levels in my basement where this is set up and it's doing a great job of keeping things dry.
