Question about Frigidaire 5 cu. ft. / 142 liter Chest Freezer FFC05M0A
This small freezer never has had any frozen fish stored. It has been cleaned but when we turn on power, it begins to have a fish odor which appears to emanate from the chest door insulation.
can the insulation and gasket be replaced and if so, what would the approximate cost be ?
Might sound stupid but take the cover off the compressor electrics and make sure no plastic is overheating.

Tips for a great answer:
Hi - I understand that you recently had something heavy drop on top of your Frigidaire Freezer door. From my experience the condensation does typically indicate poor door seal. When cold air and warm air outside is entering into the freezer it causes condensation. Try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then I suggest contacting your manufacturer and see who they recommend to repair the unit. Hope this helps! JK

Hello friend, I appreciate your post!
I see you are trying to fix the seal on your Frigidaire chest freezer. Are you having an issue with your freezer not closing? If so, have you verified that there is nothing blocking the door from closing as well as making sure there was nothing between the door gasket and the freezer body? Next, I would check to make sure that the gasket is not damaged or compromised in any way. If it is not damaged, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. I hope this information helps. -Matt

Hello Cory Mitchell - If your freezer is not cooling, it could have a floating restriction in the lines or something more complicated like an issue with the seal system that only a professional can repair. This can conclude the compressor not working correctly, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines at incorrect levels to properly cool. If the compressor was running, humming or even a little warm then that was typically normal. Also try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and the door. Now close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing. If it proves to be ineffective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.
