This is the first dehumidifier I have ever purchased and I have to admit I am really impressed. I had no idea how much humidity was in the house until we started using this unit. We have managed to raise the thermostat this summer which is a first. We bought a second one for our garage and what a difference. We were starting to see mold in the garage and now nothing!
I know there is a recall for these dehumidifiers. However, I bought a $250 70-pint Whytner dehumidifier (after disabling my recalled Frigidaire one). The new dehumidifier was awful. I couldnt even remove the collection bin without spilling water all over the floor. I was so frustrated with Whytner that I called Frigidaire customer service and they told me that if the serial number started with a number higher than 3, I was good to go. I was somewhat leery of buying from Overstock because it could have been the same recalled dehumidifier. But I took a chance an ordered the same brand Frigidaire 70-pint dehumidifier. The serial number was higher than 3 and it is marvelous. Whoever designed this Frigidaire dehumidifier should get a medal. I can see the water level clearly (not like the other one), it doesn't leak all over my floor (like the other one), it stops when it is full (not like the other one). It is a joy to have.
