Open Question

4 year old Frigidiare Freezer model #FFU14FC4CW1 will not cool

The freezer was turned off for about 4 months. It was working before it was turned off. I moved it from one home to another. When restarted, it will not cool. Turned it back off and let sit for 24 hours. Restarted and still will not cool. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Frigidiare upright freezer has just stopped cooling

I was hoping it would be something like a cracked door seal, or a faulty thermostat, etc., but after reading the rest of your info, I've concluded the likely cause is a slow leak in the refridgerant line(s). I've seen many of these fairly new upright freezers with this problem.

Finding the leak is easy for a service tech to find, but the cost of the service tech isn't cheap and unfortunately, the repair cost will probably exceed the cost of a new freezer, but you can try to call a repair tech and see if they can give you a rough estimate over the phone or if they think it's worth fixing, etc.

My advice is to replace it. The cost of food you've lost has probably exceeded the price of a new freezer - and you've had this happen twice now. These days it seems that some appliances are being designed and built as "throw aways" due to the high repair cost.

Wished I had some better news for you, but unless you've got all the specialty tools; (charging gauges, vaccum pump, Freon, etc.) needed to do the repair yourself, along with the technical knowledge, it's likely not worth having the repair service contracted. Best Regards.

SOURCE: Just had a new upright Frigidaire freezer

Whenever you get a frig or freezer delivered it is best to wait at least 24hrs (some say 8 hrs) before you plug in. It maybe unknown to you if this was shipped to you in the laying down postion. If it was and you plugged in it will not work because laying down the oil migrated away from the compressor.

Other than that the freezer could have (possible chance but still possible) problems that are out of your control. If you brought it at a retail store you have at least 2 weeks to exchange. Do that a.s.a.p.
Dont bother trying to figure out just exchange!!!

hope this was helpful

Fridge working but not cooling


Sometimes they need to sit for a while after they have been moved, to allow all the refrigerant to settle back where it should be. If you had to put it on it's side / upside down to clean it, then maybe if you give it a few hours sitting upright it might start working again.

Also (I am not familiar with that exact model of fridge) are there any switches or dials that may have been moved during the cleaning process?

Freezer seems to be stuck in defrost mode


Sounds like the pat test fried the pcb. They use too high a voltage to test the appliance wiring and it doesn't do printed boards much good!

Got home from vacation to a freezer full of food that seemed to be 'soft'....power did go out while away but was up when we got home. I can hear the freezer working but the food is not doing so good!


you dont say how long the power was off but if food went soft, chuck it,or cook the meat and then refreeze it,everything else is spoilt and will last no more than a month tops....from startup the freezer will take about 24hours to get cold(-18C)

I just moved into a home with a kenmore chest freezer. This is a real dumb question, but which symbol means on. Should the circle be showing for "on" or should the line be showing for "on"?


Some freezer models feature a temperature
monitor that provides an audible
alarm. The temperature monitor alarm is
located near the temperature control

The alarm sounds if the temperature in
the freezer rises 10° F (12° C) or more
above normal for selected setting. Alarm
may sound if temperature control dial is
turned to a much colder setting or if a
large amount of unfrozen food is added at
one time. Alarm is controlled by a three
position switch



0 = OFF prevents alarm from sounding
when freezer is warm, such as during
initial start-up or defrosting.
• ✓ = TEST sounds alarm regardless of
temperature. Alarm system should be
tested at least once a month.
1 = ON is proper setting for normal
freezer use. Return switch to 1 after
defrosting.

Freezer comes off and on.


try leaving it uplugged for at least 6 hours after it has been moved in order for the oil and gas to seperate and settle. Then it should work okay

Freezer freezes and then thaws


check wiring into outlet and at breaker that feeds outlet. you may be losing high volts at or to the switch. if possible check power into the stat when the condition occurs. this will telll you if stat is bad or power into it aka the outlet is bad. you may be jiggling wires in the outlet enough to fix short term each time you replug to outlet or get a good heavy extension cord and plug in else where to seee if problem goes away.Good luck

Used freezer won't freeze food


If the compressor is running and it still doesn't cool, it is probably leaking freon. If this is a frostless model there are other minor things that can go wrong. This usually shows up on a freezer that has recently been moved or hasn't been used for a time. This is almost never worth fixing as even if you fix it you can't ever completely trust it again. The food inside is usually worth far more than the freezer and most homeowners insurance doesn't cover it anyway.
