Question about Frigidaire Freezers

Open Question

I have a Model FFU14F5HW Frigidaire Upright Freezer that shutsdown and the controls fault or freeze.

The freezer will run normally for several days, then the door mounted controls will fault or freeze. There is still power to the door mounted electronic thermostat, but the controls will freeze and not respond. The compressor and even the interior light will power down, but the LED display to the controls are still powered. If I unplug the power connection from the wall socket and then reconnect it, the freezer will power back up and operate normally at least for several days. The controls will also operate normally after a power reset. Would you please let me know what could cause this problem and the solution?

First make sure you have a good 9v battery installed. If it is ok then the problem will probably be in the display board or the wiring connectors between the boards. CE is communication error. If your model has the electronic tempature control instead of mechanical thermostat the problem could be in there. My bet is a bad connection at display board.

If it started to cool again the compressor was running. Check the condenser and make sure it is clean. Provide as much air movement through the garage as possible . 100 degrees is a high temperature to be operating a refrigerator in.

SOURCE: My freezer's defrost systems runs constantly

i dont think so i would look at the compressor kicking out on thermal overload or a faulty thermostat thermostats have two settings cut in cut out your cut in could be bad and not turning the compressor on till the temp reaches melting temps now if your hearing a click buzz then you need to look at the compressor and make sure the compressor fan is running but its not a defrost promblem

SOURCE: Frigidaire Freeze FFU1764FW0 failed after power brown out.

Yes a power brown out can cause compressor failure. More than likely If there was a power surge it is possible that the overload on the compressor opened. This is a safty device that helps protect the compressor. It usually resets itself but in the cause of a surge it may have burnt up. problem could also be in the relay or thermostat

Frigidaire FFU14F5HW Hi-Temp alert. Checked thermistor at front panel pins 1 to 2, reading was 162.8K ohms. Removed panel to check thermistor, then put it in a cup of ice water-now reads 32.1K ohms. P


Check the internal temp with a thermometer. Anything above -12c will give you the hi alarm. Check the condenser is clean and drier not too warm, no ice build up inside the evaporator and all fans working properly etc, before suspecting thermistors.

Just had a new upright Frigidaire freezer delivered two days ago. Plugged it in immediately. It did not get cold after several hours. Turned it off then back on. Unplugged it. Unplugged it for several...


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
