    Question Frigidaire IQ Drive - No Option to Disable Dehumidifier!

    I have the Frigidaire IQ Drive thermostat and there is no setting to turn off the dehumifier. When I go to:

    -> Menu
    -> Settings

    There is no "Options" menu.

    I looked at every single menu and there is no way to turn off the dehumidifier. I'm tired of my A/C running 24 hours a day. Can someone please tell me how to turn off the dehumidifier? THank you.

    Yes... there is a humidity setting... I have it set to the highest humidity setting possible.... 45% and 70%. I have no idea why there isn't an option to just turn it off. This is one of the first IQ Drive thermostats they made... they installed the system in 2004.

    What do you think it is?

    This is a 10-seer A/C in a 1300 sq/ft house. I set the house to 75* during the day and 73* during the night. The humidity usually floats around 60%. I have the setting for humidity set at 45% and 70%. The temperature will be at the set temperature I want it at, but the A/C won't shut off even though it has met the 73* and sometimes it gets lower to 72* and still runs.

    The A/C runs at around 1000 rpms the whole day. It never shuts off.

    If you have an IQ drive, you certainly don't have a 10 seer.

    Have you asked the installing dealer about it?

    It's from 2004... the model number is: FS3BA-030KA

    You guys may not be familiar with this system because it came out about 10 years ago when HVACs started coming out. Probably one of the first systems ever made.

    Are you sure that model is correct? It's not coming up on Nordyne contractor website.

    That model is not an IQ drive.

    What is your furnace/air handler model number?

    Do I have to go into the attic for that? I'll be right back.
