Which way on the dial is to freeze?

I am having a problem with my freezer as well. Although I bought mine at a cash and carry, and I didnt get a manual. So if someone can tell me if the "whiter" or "bluer" area is colder than the other. I have no idea.

What is the factory preset temp for a frigidaire upright freezer? the delivery person set it at coldest #7, but once the unit has been running for 4 plus hours, where should the dial be set?

I believe the Frigidaire owner's manual will give you suggestions. I have a Frigidaire and I keep mine on 4. That is the middle point. Set it there then wait a day or two and make sure you have nothing freezing inside and items in your refrigerator are cold enough for you. It's your personal preference.

Upright frigidaire freezer light flashing 6 degrees pressed super freeze will it reset??? How do I know if super freeze button working??

Check along the back and sides of the freezer for any vent-like openings that are covered or blocked by packages. There may be a sensor that's not getting air flow as it should. Although most upright freezers are now frost free, there still can be ice buildup in critical areas such as the thermal sensor or the fan. Can you tell if the fan is running?

Even if the compressor has failed, your frozen items will keep the temp down for several days. I suggest you move the frozen goods to a neighbor immediately. Meat or fish in particular quickly becomes unsafe to eat without at least refrigeration.

I have a Rank Arena BF260 freezer I got from my dad. There is a switch on the front, if it is to the left, there is no icon on it, if it's to the right it has a snowflake icon show. Dad didn't even realise...

It is the fast freeze switch. It keeps the freezer full on even if it gets down to its operating temperature. You will see the yellow or orange light come on. You do this if you want to add some new item in the upper fast freeze compartment. Make sure you turn it off after about 2 hours.

I recently bought a norfrost chest freezer model c6aew,the freezer did not come with a manual or guide.i switched on the freezer set the dial to seven waited 24hrs and put some food into the freezer to...

Can't help I'm afraid, but we have exactly the same problem with exactly the same model. Ours did work for nearly 2 years, but recently only works with the boost button pressed in. I suspect the thermostat is not working as the boost button over-rides the thermostat to give max cooling. Your freezer is new so get it exchanged; it certainly doesn't need to be full to work!

Frezeer fz90 thye hight temp light is on and the food is de freezing and we would like to know what the dial be on

the food in the freezer is getting warm (de freezing?) because you have a faulty part. changing the dial now wont do any good, but it should be in the middle setting. I cant tell what part is bad with your lack of description.

Hotpoint future rz150 freezer, it keeps freezing over and then I cannot open the drawers

sounds like you have a leaking door seal. try running a hair dryer around the seal while the door is shut. this can sometimes work or help atleast. also inspect your seal for any cracks especially down the bottom. these cracks can be fixed with silicon although it is not ideal. :)
