Question about Frigidaire 5 cu. ft. / 142 liter Chest Freezer FFC05M0A
We keep a 2 year old Frigidaire refrigerator with a top mounted freezer in our garage for extras. Just noticed today that everything in the freezer had thawed out and the freezer was not working. Outside temperatures were below freezing here last week. What can be the problem and what can we doto fix it?
Move the refrigerator to a room that is at least 50 degrees F.
Temps on most refrigerators are regulated by the fresh foods temp. If your garage is let's say 35 degrees, the fresh foods temp will most likely never raise enough to turn the refrigerator on. With the refrigerator never running, the freezer compartment will warm to 35 degrees, resulting in everything melting. Even if garage is a bit warmer, say 45, the refrig will not run long enough for the freezer to maintain a low enough temperture. If the garage temp falls to below freezing, say 20 degrees, the food in the fresh foods compartment will freeze. (outdoor beverage dispensers have internal heaters to prevent product from freezing !) Please don't rate this if not a Fix-Ya for you, as anything else lowers my score.
