Question about Frigidaire 15 cu. ft. / 425 liter Chest Freezer FFC15C3A

Chest freezer not freezing

Until about a week ago our chest freezer doesn't want to freeze things all the way. I checked the motor/pump and it is clean and running. We have the unit in the garage and the garage is almost as cold as it is outside. Will that make a difference? I have a tech coming out tomorrow but it would be nice to fix it myself

Home refrigeration units are not designed to work in low temperature areas. where temps will drop below 45f so that is your problem. this is listed in your owners manual if you want to verify. thx peyton

Since the motor is running, the compressor it is connected to must also be running. The compressor is the thing that provides the cooling under normal circumstances. The only thing I can think of as to why you are not getting cooling is that the refrigerant charge has leaked out of the system. I don't know anything about the red lights you mention.

Sounds like your control switch is going bad. Good thing you have the quick freeze button. You may want to go ahead and replace it. The whole thing will go out soon. This is something you can replace yourself.

Sounds like your freezer has lost its charge of refrigerant. That motor sound is the compressor. And the internal thermal overload is tripping it out every minute because refrigerant also cools the compressor motor. Have a licensed repairman find the leak, seal it,and recharge it with R134a refrigerant.

Chest freezer not freezing on bottom


Sounds like a circulation problem. Does it have a fan inside the freezer. Should be bdhind the floor or one of the wall panels. There should be a vent for the air to circulat through. If so check to make sure it's running when the compressor runs.

Believe it or not, but it is normal. Especially when just turned on. As the internal temp. gets colder so will the temp. on the side get cooler.
