Frigidaire FFAD7033R1 Features

  • Frigidaire FFAD7033R1 is equipped with many features.
  • Humidity control. You can choose a value between 35% to 85%, so the room is maintained at a comfortable humidity. Humidity can be set in 5% increments. After you set the desired humidity, the display will show actual room humidity.
  • The FFAD7033R1 has 3 fan speeds – high, medium, and low. Higher fan speed will result in faster moisture removal.
  • The “Compressor” circuit has an automatic 3 minute time delayed start if the unit is turned off and on quickly. This prevents overheating of the compressor and possible circuit breaker tripping.
  • The FFAD7033R1 has a clean filter light that will illuminate after 250 hours of use.
  • A timer enables you to set start or stop time. You can set any time in the choice from half-hour to 24 hours.Frigidaire FFAD7033R1 70 Pints Dehumidifier
  • The full tank alert system will notify you when the tank is full. The FFAD7033R1 has also added an extra bucket full indicator light to the front of the unit. This light will constantly blink when the bucket is full, removed, or not placed accurately.
  • The dehumidifier has an auto-shutoff function. The unit shuts off when the water tank is full of saving energy and protecting against spills.
  • If the FFAD7033R1 goes out due to unexpected power, it will restart automatically with the same settings as before.
  • Low-temperature operation. The unit is designed to operate between 41 °F (5 °C) and 90 °F (32 °C). The unit will not work well if the temperature is out of this range, or the performance of the dehumidifier will fall greatly. Auto defrost automatically decreases frost buildup so the unit can continue extracting moisture in low temperatures down to 41 degrees F.
  • A continuous drain option is available. The drain hose is not included, but you will have a drain hose adapter in the package. If you want to drain moisture upward, you will have to add an external condensate pump.

The water bucket for a 70-pint dehumidifier is small, and you have to clean the bucket regularly with warm water and detergent.
