How do you turn off your freezer to clan it out and why does it run so long


Thank you for your post, friend!

To turn your freezer off you should be able to disable power from the control panel or you can disconnect power from your freezer to clean it out.

The compressor on your freezer will continue to run until the temperature has dropped to its setting. The thermostat inside of your freezer should tell the compressor to stop running. If you feel your freezer is running too long you may want to check to make sure the rear is cleaned out buildup of dirt or debris can cause your freezer to overwork. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

My freezer is heating up?


Because a freezer only does one thing and that is freeze things, unfortunatly any things that breaks on a freezer causes the same thing. Is it running, does the fan work (frost free) are the shelves melting (non frost free) can you hear the compressor running , is the condensor fan running ?

Freezer seems to run all the time.


Good Morning Linda, this is Z. I appreciate your post!

I understand your Frigidaire freezer seems to continuously running. Unlike older freezer that turned off and on frequently, newer models save energy from having to start up and shut off repeatedly. For example, diesel-powered trucks conserve fuel and energy and therefore have less engine wear and tear by keeping the motor running; much like newer energy efficient refrigerators/freezer. If the compressor is running on a more constant basis; it is maintaining the temperature within your freezer, rather than having to cut off and start again to adjust the temperature.

I hope this information explains why your freezer runs more often. However, should you feel that a service technician is needed; you may visit the manufacturer website to find a provider in your area that will look at your freezer.

Best regards!

Freezer Constantly Runs.


Do you know what design temperature is for that freezer? Some are meant for 0 degrees others for -10 or 15. I would say you are trying to maintain -10 for a food freezer and trying to keep ice cream frozen. Ice cream freezers need to be colder than food freezers. I know it sounds dumb but look it up. Check the door gaskets to see that there is no leakage and the surrounding area should be no higher than 75 degrees, (otherwise it\'ll run all the time). Hope this helps and good luck.

Freezer running bout only freezer top of freezer


Either the compressor is failing or it has lost some freon which means there is a leak. The sealed system needs serviced.

Running continuously


Hello bxrjer,
Welcome,

You said, you have a FFU20FC6AW2 freezer that I have noticed is running continuously. Explains my $400 electric bill.


How old is the freezer?

The thermostat may be faulty.
But check out this list first.

If the black tubes running back and forth that carry the freon is under the freezer and behind the plastic grill down near the floor you may want to remove the grill cover and gently run a refrigerator brush across the coils. Ive seen them never cleaned and full of lint and dust 2 inches thick.
This is not good for the freezer or any refrigerator too!
They need to be clean so air can run across them or they over heat and get hot.
Room or outside weather is hot. It is normal for the freezer to work harder under these
conditions.

Reasons why Freezer may run too much or too long.

1.Freezer had recently been disconnected for a period of time. Freezer requires 4 hours to cool
down completely.
2.Large amounts of warm or hot food have been stored recently. Warm food will cause the
freezer to run more until the desired temperature is reached.
3.Door is kept open too long or too frequently. Warm air enters the freezer every time the door
is opened. Open the door less often.

4.Freezer door may be slightly open. (Freezer is not level. It rocks on the floor when it is moved slightly. This condition can force the cabinet out of square and misaligned the door.Freezer needs to be leveled if this occurs.
Floor is uneven or weak. Freezer rocks on the floor when it is moved slightly. Level the floor by using metal or wood shims under the freezer or brace floor supporting the freezer.

5.Temperature control is set too cold. Turn the control knob to a warmer setting. Allow several
hours for the temperature to stabilize.
6.Freezer gasket is dirty, worn, cracked, or poorly fitted. Clean or change gasket. Leaks in the
door seal will cause freezer to run longer in order to maintain desired temperature.
