Question about Frigidaire 20.6 cu. ft. / 583 liter Upright Freezer FFU2124D
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?
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.

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

THE UINT IS FROZE UP, YOU WILL NEED TO DEFROST IT. USE A FAN TO BLOW INTO THE FREEZER PORTION , AND HAVE LOTS OF BIG THIRSTY TOWELS HANDY .. THIS WILL TAKE ABOUT 2 HOURS TO DEFROST, WIPE EVERY THING INSIDE THE UNIT DRY !... JAY THE POOL PUMP MOTOR REPAIR GUY FLORIDA

If the compressor comes on the thermostat is good, what you need to check is for power to the fan in the freezer, if power present at fan but it doesn't run the fan motor is bad.
