Freezer vaccum seal not working

My freezer temp alarm goes off periodically. Meats are still hard frozen but popsicles are mushy. When I used to close the door it seemed to vacuum seal shut. Now that doesn't happen. Any solutions? Thanks.

Freezer is 4 months old, when we closed the door it used make a vaccum sound like it was sealing now it no longer makes that vaccum sound.


it doesn't mean the fridge door gasket isn't sealing properly, if just means it has worked itself into a permanent seal. if you aren't having any problems with the fridge, don't worry about it.

Temp Alarm going off, when freezer seems to be cooling fine.


You need to check the temp in the freezer to make sure it's down to around 10 degrees. The alarm will go off much above that.

You may need the hinge adjusted or a new door gasket but you might first try putting a layer of vaseline on the gasket. If none of those things help the problem is probably other than the door seal.

Its keeps peeping


Hello twins49
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, your Frigidaire freezer 17 cu. ft. , it keeps buzzing or peeping
The alarm may be malfunctioning or it may be warning you of low temperature.
You can go to any hard ware store and buy a refrigerator thermometer and ask them if it can go into a freezer too!It can, But ask anyway!

If it is cold enough then it is a faulty alarm going off.

Your freezer may be equipped with an alarm.
Here is some information that may help you find it and turn it off if you wish

Temp Alarm (audible only or audible with warning light)

This feature is designed to provide a warning of possible malfunction. If the
temperature of the food rises to a level unsafe for long-term storage, the buzzer will
sound. The red light will also glow on models so equipped. The Temp Alarm feature
operates on household electricity. If power fails, the alarm will not perform. An ON/
OFF switch allows you to deactivate the Temp Alarm when not wanted. The freezer
is shipped with Temp Alarm in the OFF position. After freezer has run approximately
4 hours, the red light, if equipped, will go off. Then you may activate the Temp Alarm
without the alarm sounding.
Press the ON switch to activate the Temp Alarm. To deactivate, press the OFF switch.
If the alarm sounds, be sure freezer is properly leveled, and the door closes freely, and
seals properly. If you suspect a technical malfunction, call an authorized servicer
immediately.

Let me no what you find.
Huuum

Frigidaire upright model #MFU20F3GW8- Food not freezing


Check and clean the air cooled condenser for dust and dirt. Check and make sure the fan in back, on the bottom behind a removable panel, is operating. After cleaning the condenser replace the panel.
Also you stated there is no frost anywhere. Did you check the back wall of the freezer for frost buildup. If not check it and if there is frost there your defrost system is not working and the frost has stopped air circulation.

FREEZER ALARM WILL NOT SHUT OFF


Use a freezer thermometer and tell me the actual temperature. Or at least store some ice cream and see if it stays brick hard. Unless I have some idea of the actual temp I can't tell if defective freezer or alarm

IF THE FROST ON THE EVAPORATOR ISN'T ACROSS ALL OF THE COILS, THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE SEALED SYSTEM. NORMAL OPERATING TEMP IS ZERO DEGREES FAHRENHEIT. THE FROST ON THE EVAPORATOR SHOULD BE THIN AND UNIFORM. IF IT IS HAIRY AND ONLY COVERING PART OF THE COILS, THEN YOU HAVE A SYSTEM FAILURE. IT COULD BE A LEAK AND LOSS OF FREON, A RESTRICTION, OR A WEAK COMPRESSOR.

Upright Freezer self defrosting


THE (SUCKING AIR) OCCURS WHEN THE TEMP IS VERY LOW IN THE FREEZER AND YOU LET WARM AIR IN BY OPENING THE DOOR. WHEN THE DOOR IS CLOSED, THE WARM AIR IS COOLED CAUSING A VACUUM IN THE FREEZER. IF THE DOOR SEAL HAS A LEAK AROUND IT, THE SUCKING SOUND WILL NOT TAKE PLACE. CHECK THE DOOR SEAL FOR A GAP AT ONE OF THE CORNERS OR ALONG THE SIDES,BACK, BOTTOM, OR TOP.IF THE SEAL IS O.K., HOW IS THE TEMP? IF THE TEMP SEEMS WARM, YOU MAY NEED TO CHECK THE SEALED SYSTEM. LOOK AT THE FROST PATTERN ON THE EVAPORATOR. IS IT COMPLETE AND UNIFORM? IS ONLY PART OF THE EVAPORATOR FROSTED BACK? IF THE ENTIRE EVAPORATOR IS FROSTED BACK UNIFORMLY, THE SEALED SYSTEM IS O.K.
