The best you can do is ensure that the compressor area and fins are not clogged by dust and such. But don't mess around long, call a repair man to fix your freezer if cleaning doesn't help. Prob cheaper than replacing your spoiled food.

If you had the door open for that long you will need to unplug and allow the ice buildup that happens when door is left open to thaw. After this you need only to plug the refrigerator back into the power source.Let me know what happens It is not going to work correctly until this is done. Sea Breeze

Frigidaire refrigerator compressor overheated when I left the door opne.


the motor of the compressor may have tripped on overload protection. Allow it to cool down and then unplug the fridge then plug it back in and try to run it. It should run. Be advised that the condenser coils underneath need to be clean. You should have a strong person tilt the empty fridge while you vacuum and clean all the dust and lint off the coils. Be gentle as these coils are fragile and are easily damaged. Hope this helps.

I have a Frigidaire freezer LFFU1424DW not freezing. Came home to melting ice and thawed food. I heard clicking noise like a fan but goes off after a few seconds. Help please.


first of all unplug that freezer and wait for 15 mins. move it five feet from the wall. after 15mins, plug it back and kick in compressor at the same time!!!! remember plug and kick at the same time. the ckicking noise come from the starting relais. this says that the compressor has a problem. If it doesn't work ; you will have to call a service person who will replace the compressor for you.

How to disable deep freeze? plz give me solution.


If there are two compressors on your unit, disconnect the freezer compressor. If only one compressor, nothing can be done as the fridge and freezer piping are in series. Assuming you have an upright fridge.

Homemaker chest freezer is hilling but not freezing. HAve tried defrosting and compressor sounds fine?


Try thawing out the freezer....Put all your food in a cooler, unplug the freezer and leave the door open, let the freezer sit for a few hours then plug it back in, if this doesnt help you may need to recharge your refrigerant....If you have a model you can refill hope this helps

Condenser runs continuousley and is very hot


Don't know what kinda freezer this is? Commercial? Look for dirty condenser coils/ fins. Be sure air can circulate around condenser. Possibly low on refrigerant (freon). Need more info for more detail solutions.

GIBSON DEEP FREEZE IS RUNNING BUT EVERYTHING IS THAWING OUT


Might try unplugging for a few hours and then plug it back in. There is a possibility that it slugged the compressor and there is a restriction in the line. Sometimes when the compressor fails to stop running in cold air the liquid gets back to the compressor. It can cause a bit of gunk to be picked up out of the oil and carried to the expansion line and plug up the line. Maybe turning it off will let the plug fall free and not replug the line. Worth a try anyway.....
