From my understanding the alarm on your Frigidaire commercial chest freezer continues to go off. You have explained that the temperature is at zero degrees. It sounds like you could have a potential issue with your thermostat or sensor. I would recommend having a professional technician come out to properly diagnosis your freezer to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Good luck. -Matt
temperature is set by dial #1 being the warmest and 9 being the coldest the numbers on the dial are only for reference they do not reperesent a certain temperature you will need a thermometer to figure out what number is what temp but they do recommend starting in the middle
I would suggest getting a fridge/freezer thermometer and use that to set the temperature. They are marked with the recommended temperatures. Also many times the setting on the nob in the freezer are not very consistent so it is better to actually set the temperature by turning the knob up or down to reach the desired temp on the thermometer
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

It depends on the control that your freezer utilizes.
If your temp control dial has the numbers 0-9 or 1-9, then you have whats commonly known as a coil temp sensor.
Unlike an air temp contol that measure the air temp inside the freezer and comes on and off with a 3-5° swing, the coil temp sensor runs a little bit different.
With a coil temp control or sensor, the temp control has a capillary tube and bulb that is inserted into the coil either at on of the ends down a guidetube or just into the center of the radiator type fins. This temp control measures the temperature of the coil, and not the temperature of the air inside the freezer. When the unit runs, the coils typically gets 20° colder than the air temp. And when the control satisfies (shuts off), it will not call for cooling again until the sensing bulb has reached the cut-in point which is typically well above design box temp.
So, to quickly answer your question, yes it is possible to have a 25° temp swing and not have anything really wrong with the unit. That is how its been designed to operate and that is how it will operate. Your only option (although not recommended) is to replace the coil temp sensor with and air temp control. That will give you more consistent temps.
Also, when taking temp of a freezer with a coil temp sensor, be sure to temp the product in the freezer and not the air temperature.
check the temp dial. and set to a lower temp. *be mindful of the surrounding temp of the freezer. it will not work properly if it is in 125 degree surrounding air. * check the coils on the freezer and make sure that they are clean. this allows for proper heat transfer from the inside of the box to the outside air. also check to see if the blower is running. * Check to see if there are signs of oil around the freezer, if so contact a service tech
I have a danby mini fridge and freezer and noticed the same problem. The temperature dial has NO NUMBERS ON IT! it just has a strip that goes from light to dark blue. That's it. I looked in the manual and it doesn't say anywhere which way is colder...it makes sense that the darker the blue the colder the temperature but why keep us guessing?
