Bring all the controls to zero..unplug the unit for 10 minutes..plug it back in..and then bring the controls up to full range..it is equivalent to having an engine that is flooded..if this is not working to resolve this, then the compressor or the capacitor on it, are shot.

Generally the thermostat that turns on and off the compressor is in the freezer and so is the coils. The control knob that is in the refrigerator section is just to adjust the air flow between the two sections. If the air flow is blocked you don't get cooling in the refrigerator section. This could be a bad fan motor not creating circulation, ice blockage because the defrost cycle is not melting away ice accumulation. If it's defrost problems it could be timer, defrost thermostat, or heater element.

Hi, I have a Frigidaire Commercial upright freezer that runs but does not get cold anymore. Its only about 5 years old. Could it just be a freeon problem?


Frigidaire are notorious for having compressor issues (very expensive) however if the unit is under 5 years old it IS still under warranty!
Thanks and please rate me!

Upright freezer quit cooling, interior fan runs, compressor runs


The coils are most certainly there probably located under your unit. Clean them thoroughly. Look under and to the very top of that space.

Kitchenaid refrigerator not working


it would not be likely to stuck in defrost mode but my guess would be the compressor is not running. overheated or the condenser is full of dirt. as you said , you can hear fan running, is it inside the ref or outside?..or both?..if that is the case, then it is on freezing mode because the fans would not run on defrost mode..i hope i was able to help..

Drain line may be plugged. Access from the rear and clean it out. Then melt ice and put some hot water through the drain to insure it is clear. The water should appear in the drain pan under the freezer.
