Bought an older version of this Frigidaire 70 pint from Lowes's bought the 3 year extended warranty based on previous experience. It promptly stopped working just after the 3 year mark. Every case the same thing, the units run but draw no moisture out of the air.
Frigidaire has 5 yr warranty on condenser- i had the same issue on a 70 pint dehumidifier from frigidaire bought in 2016, and got it replaced 2 wks ago under warranty. Give frigidaire a call!

I have this unit and it's an excellent price for a very good dehumidifier. I think I paid $270.00 from Amazon last year.

I'm in need of a dehumidifier for my basement this winter (got significant rain-out last year during the thaw) and have been looking at this model. My basement is about ~1250sqft. Does it matter if I get the 30/50/70 pint version if I'm just going to be hooking it up to a drain hose anyway? Does the 70pint version remove more humidity than the 30 pint version? Or does it just have a larger collection basket.

I may bite the bullet (no ontario rebate) and pay the extra money for this over the danby.

I bought the unit from Lowes early in the summer for approx $280 and am really pleased with it. It is highly regarded as one of the best.

I have the Frigidaire 50 pint version and it works amazing. Had a minor main floor washing machine overflow situation which the water promptly drained underneath the baseboards and directly into a room in the finished basement. I ran the dehumidifier on continuous cycle in the room for a week straight and it dried out the whole room. It saved us from having to rip up the room to dry it out, because it lowered the humidity from 85% down to 20% and completely dried out the drywall and carpet.

It's the amount of water removed per 24 hours based upon some % RH. Larger number = larger device = more humidity removed = more power consumed

Did they ask for receipt? Mine dies with the error code "EC" which I believe is also the condenser. Unfortunately haven't had any luck tracking down the receipt from 3 years ago so far.

Not really. I just needed to provide a rough timeframe of purchase and the vendor.
Frigidaire will authorize a credit at the same vendor, so I can bring in the broken dehumidifer and exchange it with a new one.

Mine also had the exact same "EC" code - make sure you mention this to Frigidaire warranty rep on the phone.

How are people getting the 25% off if it's in-store only but it's OOS everywhere?

No the rebate isn't over. However they are out of stock so I paid today and will get a call to pick up when it is in Stock.
So you can go in-store and order even if it's OOS?

Thank you! And to the other poster - I'm not in ontario, so no rebate for me :).
