Question about Freezers

1 Answer

Got another question about a freezer

Hi. You helped me with the washer machine a couple days ago and thanks a lot again. Do you know anything about upright freezers, specifically Frigidaire/Tappan freezers? If so the freezer isn't freezing anymore and we can't figure out what's wrong with it. Would it even be worth repairing? And the product line won't be correct because it won't recognize the product so I'll give it to you here.

I have seen freezer stop working because the owner pulled it out to clean behind it and pushed it back into place too far. This "Chocked" the air flow around the condenser and caused the failure. Be sure condenser is clean and air can circulate. Older units have coils up the back and newer ones have them underneath and utilize a fan. You can use a vacuum on the the underneath ones. Be sure fan runs under there.

GE Freezer stopped working

Obviously, the compressor is not running. Confirm the presence of power to the compressor itself. If it is getting power and unit does not run, you have an open motor winding OR if you have a start capacitor the latter could be defective. Let's hope that you have the capacitor because they go bad and are a lot cheaper to replace than the compressor!

True Freezer T23 compressor will not stop running

Have him check the t'stat. And freon lines. I believe the t'stat is the problem. Are the door gaskets ok and does it seal properly when closed. The fan should always run, so this could be in the rewiring. I am assuming you will be working out of a freezer where the working temp is a little higher.

Glfh21f8hw freezer - tried to bring the temp down off extreme freeze and it went off (display shows OF and compressor stopped). Just loaded it with lots of food, can't get it to come back on and the...

At 0F it will go off because it is at 0 so it is ok later when it warms up again it will start up and bring the temp down again. Just check your temp for a couple of days so you have it at the right temp.that you need it at. It should be OK at 0F

BEKO Frost free freezer not as cold as it should be!

Sorry I don't have a solution for you, however would like to know if you found out what was wrong. I have an identical problem with my Beko fridge/freezer. It's only 14 months old and the freezer just wont freeze. I've turn it off for 24 hour and let it defrost completely (even had the panel off to make sure there was no ice left). I've turned it back on again and it still wont freeze. Everything seems ok, ie fan blowing, motor running etc. I really am beginning to regret buying Beko. thanks

Frigidaire upright freezer Model #FFU17C3AW1 Not keeping cold

Yes that is the correct part number.
If a new cold control does not correct the problem. Replace the compressor start relay.

Icemaker Waterline has Bacteria in it

This bacteria (for most of us) is not harmful. Ive never heard of anyone becoming sick from this stuff but I suppose someone might have an allergy. I see it in Ice Machines that are in restaurants all the time. It seems more prevalent in ones that do a lot of baking where yeast or Bread is used a lot like Bakeries Pizza and Hamburger fast foods...places.
Do you store a bread doe in your refrigerator? The air communicates with the freezer air. This is how its transferred. Clean the reddish stuff out again. Clean and wipe the outer containers and the walls and ceiling and under crisper in the refrigerator. Then if your going to store anything that you use with yeast or other types of activator that puts off CO2 (I E Baking soda or power?) double bag it in plastic bags. See if this solves your problem. If the stuff comes back it must be in your water supply. Are you on a treated water supply?

Hope this helps if so please rate me accordingly and good luck.

Freezer/Refrigerator tempurature swinging wildly

The compressor is overheating and not starting. Could be just the start relay. If this happens again try unplugging it for about an hour then it should work for a while. Heat between doors is normal this is an electric heater designed to keep the doors from sweating. You just noticed it because the refrigerator wasn't cold.
