Question about Freezers

Not cold enough?

Two weeks ago I filled my freezer up with meat and since then it appears to be working overtime with the fan and motor constantly going day and night.
I have found that the temp is 0 degrees and some food I added on Saturday (chicken necks) are still not properly frozen.
Any suggestions

    I must add an upright frost free freezer unit on it's own, no fridge.

  • Marina Van Dyk Oct 20, 2008

    Thanks for that. I will get hubby to move it and check the circulation and cleanliness of the condensor etc.

    an upright frost free freezer neads a lot of air circulation around the product , also they are under disighned for acualy flash freezing large quantitys of product. the manufatuares rely on you dringing home preveously frozen products. as long as there is enough air circulating around your products the freezer will eventualy freez them . remember the compressors capacity is aprox 400 btu.s witch is about 400 lbs water 1 deg f per hour without outside influences . ie defrost systems. insulation . surounding temps. enshure ther is no dust build up uder or behind the freezers condesor and if it has a condensor fan enshure good circulation threw condensor. to remove heat from products the freezer has to be able to dicharge that heat. hope this makes sence and helps you

Upright Freezer not cold enough


Honestly it sounds as if you have a sealed system issue, most likely low on freon.

I have a 20 cf upright GE freezer that isn't


it may be froze up, and require a defrosting. use a portable fan to speed up this process , also make sure the fan in the freezer compartment is working, with a little work and a zoom spout oiler, or some light motor oil, the motor can be sparked back to life.. freeze ups are common with the high humidity we are having these days.. jay the pool pump motor repair guy longwood Florida

Freezer is not getting cold enough. For example, meat is still frozen but ice cream is soft.


Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed

Since this is a new freezer it should be serviced by the people who sold it to you in order to avoid any warranty conflict. The fan blades of these units are of a slip fit onto the motor shaft. It is possible that the fan blade has come off the motor shaft.

Some food is thawing in my chest freezer


these frigidaire made freezers are notorious for having restrictions in the sealed systems that will cause exactly what your describing.

what happens is oil moves around in the freon system and pools up in the capillary tubes and the freon is not able to flow properly. if the unit is under 5 yrs old then should be inwarranty to sears. if its over 5 then probably cheaper to purchase a new one..
