I have made the mistake of purchasing two used dehumidifiers and they both gave after less than a year. I spent more on those two total than I did on this one. Been using this for a couple of months now and it works wonderfully, no issues or difficulties. If you can, use a hose so you do not have to empty the bucket. it also stays much cleaner.
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.
