Not many people use dehumidifiers in the middle of the winter; Are you in a warm weather state? The dehumidifier should have a moisture percentage control. Simply dial it to the desired level. I would suggest setting it to 50% and checking your reservoir in a few hours for any water. Do you have a humidity gauge so that you can see what is the current room condition of humidity? I would be happy with 50%, but you may need something different. Good luck.

I bought one of the FDL70S1 Frigidaire dehumidifiers today for my shop, and found that the $5 hose I bought to drain it through the floor wouldn't tighten down completely, allowing the hose to twist and wobble, a sure indication that it was not water tight. Simply adding a second washer, as described in another answer here, allowed me to tighten the hose sufficiently to produce a tight fit with no play between the hose and the dehumidifier. It hasn't leaked. I know it is a threads-per-inch issue, and I am stumped as to why Frigidaire would supply these units with a different thread pitch than the standard GHT (garden hose thread) 3/4" - 11.5 tpi. The threads on the unit appear to be 3/4 NPS - 14 tpi. Go figure!

Dehumidifiers have a tank in the bottom to catch the water that it removes from the air. This is usually accessed from the back. There is a float switch that hangs in the tank similar to that which is in a toilet tank so that when it gets full, it won't overflow. If this tank is full or if this float or it's associated switch got damaged by someone mishandling the tank while removing it, it will keep the unit from turning on thinking that the tank is still full. Good luck.
