The Frigidaire FFAD3033R1 is a smaller version of the 5033R1 and 7033R1 models. It offers the same high-quality and convenience associated with the larger capacity units in the FFAD33R1 model line but comes with a lower price. The unit was released for sale to the marketplace in 2015 and is equipped with Frigidaire’s latest technology and design specifications. The 3033R1 weighs only thirty-four pounds and comes with caster wheels on the bottom of the unit for easy portability. It excels in quiet operation as it has been rated at producing only 47dBs of sound while running at the highest fan speed setting available on the unit.
In addition to being a very quiet dehumidifier, the unit also removes moisture faster than many other units available in its category. While the 30-pint capacity does have its limitations, if you need fast and efficient moisture removal for smaller spaces then the 3033R1 is an excellent choice. The digital control panel is a new addition to this unit as it was missing from the previous Frigidaire 30-pint model in this category. It allows for a wide range of settings and also provides a digital readout of the current humidity level in a room and the user’s chosen humidity level.
A feature you do not see very often on most 30-pint dehumidifier models are the three available fan speeds which come with this unit. The low, medium and high fan speed settings give users a nice choice in how much performance is needed and the ability to control energy efficiency.
Check Filter Indicator
The 3033R1 comes with a check filter indicator light that lets you know when it is time to perform the necessary filter maintenance.
Digital Control Panel
The newly added digital control panel offers an easier way to control the unit compared to its predecessor. Additionally, it offers a wider range of settings and more control over dehumidifier operations.
This unit is equipped with continuous drainage much like many other larger capacity units offer. The outlet for the continuous drainage connection is on the back of the unit and while a hose is not included with the unit, you can use a typical garden hose by using the included adapter.
Accuracy of Humidity Readout
The accuracy of the humidity reading is not quite as exact as it should be. This has been a consistent issue on many of the Frigidaire models and while it is not a huge problem, there is a 3-4% variance in what the actual humidity level of a room is and what the readout displays.
- Digital Control Panel with Humidity Level Readings

- 3 Fan Speed Settings

The Frigidaire FFAD3033R1 includes a 1 year full warranty from Frigidaire and a 5 year warranty on the sealed system.
The FFAD3033R1 is one of the best dehumidifiers in the 30-pint category for home or office use. It includes many of the convenience features that are typical of larger units such as three fan speeds and full digital control panel. If you have a limited space and need a quiet, high performing dehumidifier then this unit will do the job nicely.
