Question about Frigidaire 13.7 cu. ft. / 388 liter Upright Freezer AFFU1466D

Open Question

FUF 14DVARWW Freezer- Replaced control panel, do I need to program it?

My upright freezer FUF 14DVARWW stopped working and a technician advised the control panel was bad. The technician ordered the part for me and advised when I receive just snap the new control panel in place and follow the instructions in programming it for your specific freezer FUF 14DVARWW. I received the control panel but there were no codes to program it for my specific freezer. I installed the control panel and the freezer turned on. QUESTION - Do I need to program the new control panel for my specific freezer or the only thing I need to do is what I did and just install the control panel? I don't want to damage my freezer. The technician made it sound like if I don't program the control panel that it would damage my freezer (compressor would not know when to turn off and on...). Also any advise on what type of surge protector I should use? Our electricity goes of every couple months and the last time it went off is when the control panel went bad. I assume a surge protector may help protect the control panel when the electricity goes off and on. Plus our freezer is in the garage and is connected to a GFCI electrical outlet and we keep losing all our food when the electricity goes out because the outlet trips off, so I plan to use a regular outlet (not a GFCI) to save our food. Sorry so long. Thank you!

SOURCE: Once in awhile, Circuit Breaker Trips

Your compressor start relay contacts may be getting loose or worn, resulting in a delayed start on the compressor.
If the start device includes a capacitor, it could be getting weak.
GFCI are not good receptacles for devices with high starting torque.

2 months old should still be under warenty.

Check the freezer fan by opening the freezer door and pressing the door switch and listing for the freezer fan sound. If no sound then the fan motor could be bad.

Look at the back wall too see if you have frost build up. If you do then you have a defrost problem.

If thees are not your problem you could have a seal system problem. (( freon leak ))

I would guess the control panel is failing, but due to the cost of the part have a technician come out and confirm that is the issue. You can also go to www.partsdirect.com and email the forum

Hello Ricco, thanks for your post!
Based off the information you have provided it sounds like a possible issue with your control panel or power cord within your Frigidaire freezer. I would recommend performing a reset on your freezer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to experience an issue with the freezer I would recommend consulting with a professional technician for a proper diagnosis to be completed. Best of luck! -Matt

Hello Ed Greene, thank you for your inquiry!

I see that your Frigidaire freezer is not operating. You explained that the outlet is working and the lights or controls are non-operational. It sounds like a potential issue with the power cord or control panel within your freezer. It would be best to have a technician come out to the home to review the freezer to diagnosis the correct problem and replace parts as necessary. This will help avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Hello Michael - Sounds like the temperature control was accidently turned OFF. When this occurs the temperature control turns off the compressor, but does not disconnect the power to the light bulb or other electronics. Let's try activating the freezer by pressing the UP arrow until display shows "4" or desired setting. Allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize. For future reference you can lock the control to keep from accidently changing the temperature setting. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the unit's status has changed successfully. Thank you.

Hi
I think the problem you are experiencing might be due to the temperature control.
1. Check if the temperature control is off if you dont hear the freezer operating.

2.If you do not see an interior light,when you open the door,then make sure the freezer is properly plugged into an electrical outlet.

3.Move the temperature level to a colder level if the freezer is not cold enough.Warm weather can also be a factor.

4.Find the condenser and check to see if it needs to be cleaned. The condenser is located behind the decorative paneling at the bottom of the freezer.

5.If it doesnt work still then contact a technician.
GOODLUCK

My Kenmore Upright Freezer Model 25326432100 flashed "ER."


My freezer was purchased in February, 2004. It is a self defrosting freezer but ice has started forming along the bottom shelf and back wall. Also, after cleaning the freezer the other day it has stopped clycing. The freezer will stop running only if I turn it down to the #1 setting and then it will not come back on. If I turn it up to a higher setting the compressor will not stop running. It ran for over 24 hours and would not cycle unless I turned it off or set it at the #1 setting. When I unplugged it and pulled it away from the wall, there was a green water spot the size of a dinner plate underneath the freezer. Help!! Very Unhappy this freezer is only 6 years old. S in Phila.

Freezer stopped working


A no power to the compressor is a good sign as far as being repairable is concerned. Locate the temperature control. Unplug the freezer and jumper the two main wires that connect to the control. Plug it in and if the unit runs replace the thermostat.
