Question about Frigidaire Freezers

Open Question

I have a Frigidaire upright freezer, model FFU20FC4AW that isn't

The freezer isn't freezing but is blowing cool air. It used to make a sucking/sealing sound when it closed and now it doesn't and the air is cold enough for refrigeration but not freezing.

SOURCE: kenmore upright freezer.

Will need a little more information to assist you with answers. Will need the model number if available for you Kenmore and will usually be on inside Freezer/refrigerator door and near bottom. Will look like model #363.1234567 for example.
Now if it's not cooling at all, is the compressor running beneath the fridge? Is the condenser fan running that is below the freezer and near the compressor? Is the evaporator fan blowing air in the freezer section? Do you hear clicking noises in the compressor area and can you feel the compressor to see if you feel warm or hot to touch around its side and top? Can you tell me of any other things that you noticed before the refrigerator stopped working? Is the temp control digital or manual settings? Has the settings been changed since you turned the refrigerator off and then back on? Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: My GE upright freezer does not get cold.

Sounds like the system is low on freon. The other common problem is a dirty condenser. Insure the condenser is clean, if it is. You will need to charge the system with freon. Which only a qualified refrigeration tech should do.

SOURCE: problem with upright freezer not freezing

It sounds like the unit is low on freon or the compressor is going bad. You have several other components that could be affecting this as well. Make sure the coils are free from dust and clean underneath. This is a bit premature for you to have problems now, especially since it is a Sears product.

SOURCE: I bought a used Kenmore upright freezer, it's been running all the time.

I'm Not a pro, but the comments refer to a refrigerator. I don't think they read your problem from start to finish. I went to RSI in Phoenix, and I would say it is low on refrigerant. I hope it's 134a.
Good Luck
Over the years the freon sloowly leaks out, it might need only an ounce or two but it will fix it in my opinion. I have the same problem with mine.

Your unit is not self defrosting so I would suggest you do a manual defrost and see if it corrects the problem.
Also make sure that you have good air flow across the compressor.

Is your compressor kicking on? If not then check the contactor-relay and the capacitor. If that isn't the problem then it is probably your compressor. Which is quite expensive to replace.

We just bought a chest freezer and the suction is so tight can't open the lid .What do we need to do.


Most likely it isn't the suction but moisture on your seal freezing to the frame. Suggest a putty knife with a hair dryer blowing hot air on the blade and working it around the seal.

Left door open, closed next day, but only blowing cool air now


You will need to turn the unit off and let it completely unthaw. There is frost that builds up in the ducts and behind the panels when the door is left open that will cause the unit to not cool or circulate where needed.

My frigidaire FFU20FC6AW7 is not freezing. sides are cool to the touch and they are normally hot. cold air blowing out about 40 degrees.


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

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.
