Question about Frigidaire 14.1 cu. ft. Upright Freezer (FFU14K0DW)

1 Answer

Frigidaire upright not cooling

Freezer was working fine. Then started making a hissing noise for several hours. I thought it sounded like it was defrosting itself. Next day, everything was defrosted and freezer is not cooling. Any ideas what part I might need to replace? P.S. There was no buildup of ice or water in the drain pan.

Re: Frigidaire upright not cooling

It sound like you had a freon leak, you REALLY need to get this checked by a tech. if you are leaking freon it can be dangerous.

Ok, upright freezer, frigidaire, read -12 after power outage but working ok..when I tried to reset temp to 0, light went off, freezer went off, front display reads 56..any ideas?

Thank you for your post, Cynthia!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire freezer is not cooling properly and is now displaying the temperature of 56. It sounds like your freezer is not on, even though it has power the compressor is not turned on. I would suggest pressing either the down or up arrow three times within five seconds. That should power on your compressor and it should start cooling properly. I hope this is helpful and if you should need further assistance please feel free to reconnect. -Matt

I have an 11 cf upright freezer. it has been running most of the time or at least make a noise. and I just defrosted it. and its still doing the same thing. any comments?

Good Afternoon friend, thank you for your post!

I see that your Frigidaire freezer is making noise and you have recently defrosted it, but your freezer is still making the noise. Your freezer will make certain noises which are normal operating noises for the freezer.

The compressor is a high efficiency so you may hear it during start up and while running. Additionally, refrigerant circulating through your freezer can make a tapping sound or even a gurgling noise. I hope this has been helpful. -Matt

Why is my freezer working but not my frig in frigidaire upright with seperate doors

Check the rear is clean and clear. The condenser should be warm, not hot. If it cools down towards the end of the rungs and the last bit is cold. suspect short of gas.
Further check any fans etc and remove any excess ice, and make sure the door seals ok.

Layed down freezer to transport in car for long journey left 4 hrs before start up working fine freezing but side edge behind door seal feels quite hot since

this is normal until all the freon has had a chance to get recirculated throgh the system.
make sure the evaporator fan is also working in order to properly cool the freezer.

"High wind" sound following defrost.

Freon running through the feon lines can make some odd noises, usually a gurgling or higher pitched noise. If your freezer works fine with no more strange noises, then don't worry about it. If you have temperature problems or continue to have abnormal noises, then see if your freezer has the 5 year sealed system warrantee that most freezers have. If it does, and it is under 5 years, then call Frigidaire to come out to check it out for free. If it is out of warrantee you will need to live with it or replace the freezer, since a freon sealed system repair is very high. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

New freezer not cooling - temp @ 25 degrees and food is defrosted

It is probably the control board and since it's new it's still under warranty so a certified Frigidaire repair man will fix it without charge. There should be a telephone number with the paperwork you received when you bought it.

Freezer Problem

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.
