Question about Igloo Cooler IGLOO Freezer. 3.6 cu. ft. Upright Freezer in white FRF434

Open Question

Igloo FRF434 chest freezer run light does not come on

Hi, I bought this freezer new and used it once for a few months. Then, I had to move and did not use it for about 7 months. Now, I'm trying to use it again. I plugged it in and it shows that it's in operation, but the manual says that the green "run" light is supposed to turn on indicating that the compressor is functioning. So far, it hasn't done that. I can't really tell that it's freezing, because it's winter and 30 degrees outside. I keep it in the garage, which is not as cold (t's about 50 degrees I think). The food was frozen to begin with when I transferred it to the freezer, and so far it's stayed frozen. But again, I don't know if this is because it's winter, and it's already cold. Sorry for the long explanation. My concern is that the green "run" light is not turning on. Thanks so much!

    *Update* I went to check on the freezer to find out what might be the problem and noticed that the seal had a dent in it the size of a small marble. I am thinking this might be the reason why the green "run" light is not turning on. The dent on the seal is my fault, because the cord got caught between the seal the whole time I had stored the freezer when not in use. Now I am not sure if the light is not coming on because of the seal gap or what. Can the freezer still do it's job even with a dent/gap on the seal? and does the green light need to be on?

SOURCE: Igloo chest freezer 7.2 cubic ft seems running all the time?

It may be on "superfreeze", if there is a yellow light, or it may be set for too low a temperature (try setting the thermostat down to 1 or 2). Check the condenser is clean, and fan working if it has a fan, Check lid is closing properly and the ambient temperature isn't too high.. Lastly, if all else working correctly, suspect short of refrigerant.

How do I defrost my 10.0 cu. ft. top freezer igloo refrigator


you have to defrost the freezer the old fashion way...which means it does not do it on its own....you have to shut down the refrigerator in order for it to start melting...and then sop up any water with towels or bowls....key is to never let it get full of snow, so it's easier to do.....another way to defrost it, which I do...is to take a wooden spoon, never metal....and just scrape out the layers of snow that has formed into a bowl as you scrape, put the bowl inside and just scrape it into it.......if you do that once a month, it should keep the snow from too much buildup....I love my IGLOO it's perfect for just me and my condo....and I just redid my kitchen.....however after 2 years now, it's not cooling too well, which I have read other comments that this happens...

Igloo MIS1530 not cold


If it is out of warranty..... Take it to a football field, and see if you can make three points through the goal posts.... Sorry, wish I had a better solution. They just are too inexpensive to warranty $80/hour work plus parts on them.

Fridge noise cutting out


To be honest it sounds to me like your fridge may be ok?

To extract the heat from within the fridge interior a compressor (motorised pump) moves gas around a series of pipes around the cabinets insides. This movement of gas causes heat to be picked up and taken away externally to the outside world. When the fridge temperature reaches a predetermined level (around 5C) the compressor shuts down and all is quite. The sound of running water you hear is the coolant gas changing state from gas to liquid and running through the coolant pipes. If the fridge is doing it's job and keeping the content cool then I wouldn't worry. One of the reasons you are probably noticing this sound is because it is a table top fridge. Built in fridges make the same noises but you don't really hear them so much because of the cupboards screening the sound.

Kenmore 6.9 cu. ft. chest freezer stopped working


It looks like a bad ignition switch or capacitor. This is not that expensive. Probably not the compressor. Unfortunately, one small part stops the whole show.have a friend who is a tech look at it.

I am having the same problem. How long did it take?
I bought mine second hand and think it may be broken. I plugged it in 8 hours ago. I can hear it running but it's not cold yet.
