Question about Frigidaire 12 cu. ft. / 340 liter Upright Freezer FFU12C2A

2 Answers

Freezer does not work

2 yr. old freezer. Just quit working. No noise, hums or anything. Week later when just messing around with it, it turned on and worked perfect for 24 hours and then just quit again. Frigidaire model # AAFC1466DW. I replaced the relay combo and the thermostat. Still nothing. Traced electric wires and found there is some problem near the timer defrost as no power came into some of the wires. Turned the knob on the timer defrost and it suddenly just came on. Do I need to replace the timer defrost? Does the timer defrost knob need to be "dialed" to a certain spot? Why would it just up and quit and then a week later work? When not working, it had NOTHING except a light in the door working. No sound or anything.

Almost certainly a problem with the defrost timer - just replace complete. doesn't matter what position you set timer to when replaced

Kenmore 7.5 freezer stopped working.


Thanks for all the suggestions. I just replaced the overload relay and it does the same thing. Runs for a few seconds and the loud click from overload relay. I did notice the relay is really hot to the touch, if that matters.Coils on back are clean. I had noticed the last few months that the inside coils were frosting up quite a bit.Really had hoped it was the relay.

Hums seconds only does not freeze


If it hums then quits and hums and quits and just keeps doing this then either the compressor start relay is burned out or the compressor is seized. Unless you are capable of diagnosing this you should have a tech check it out. If it's just a relay they are relatively cheap, but if it's the compressor it could cost more than the freezer is worth.

Have upright Frigidaire freezer, about 2 yrs old, that quit running. Local repair guy replaced part with "3 n/1 Start" solid state relay overload capacitor combination. Worked great for 2 weeks then...


Good day,
That's a no-no. Your compressor carries a 5 year warranty from the factory. However, if anything is altered on it the warranty is voided. You've got an issue with this guy.

Frigidaire upright freezer is making whining, revving noise, like a model airplane. What is this, and is it worth fixing in a 15-18 yr old freezer? Thanks!


If all is working fine otherwise ,check the fan in front of the condenser.It may just be the wear in the fan bearings.A replacement fan would be all thats needed to fix then.

Freezer/Refrigerator tempurature swinging wildly


The compressor is overheating and not starting. Could be just the start relay. If this happens again try unplugging it for about an hour then it should work for a while. Heat between doors is normal this is an electric heater designed to keep the doors from sweating. You just noticed it because the refrigerator wasn't cold.
