The temperature control is bad. when you push the fast freeze it bypasses the thermostat for 12-24 hours depending on which model you have. I am not able to find any parts information with the model number provided but you should be able to find a temperature control at any local appliance parts house or online thru any reputable supplier.

How to set temperature on built-in freezer that is not part of a fridge


Well start by defrosting it.
Empty out the contents and put the contents in a cooler and then switch it off. You may need to switch it off at the electrical control panel by flipping the circuit breaker.
Once you have turned it off, use hot water to help remove the ice. Have plenty of old towels around for this as water will get spilled on the floor. Once it is empty and the ice removed you may discover a temperature control switch, but if not, just be prepared to repeat the exercise every 6 months or so. In any case it is not a good idea to run the freezer when it is iced up. Once it is emptied and cleared out switch it back on and wait 10 minutes before adding your stuff back. Sometimes freezers will heat up a bit before they cool down. Once you verify its getting cold, put your food back in it. Good luck.....RD

I don't have the model number. Fridge/freezer five years old with an electronic control panel on the freezer door. Freezer temp not showing, nor can it be adjusted. Freezer temp lowering, but appears to be...


Well, its good that it is still cooling, however since you cannot adjust the temps, you do still have a problem, and one that may include the unit fails to cool properly.

Kelvinator Chest Freezer will not cool after spray painting rust spot.


Dear Landport2
Welcome to the site,

You said, you have a Kelvinator chest freezer, model number CFS101SM1W. This freezer is in excellent condition and was working ok. I notice that there was a rust spot on the bottom area so I decided to spray paint the entire inside with the appropriate appliance spray paint. After spray painting the freezer will not cool.

How old was your freezer?
This must be an ancient freezer!

And Unfortunately I was not able to tell you to leave it alone and not to turn it off!
You did not cause this!
Unfortunately it was so old that it probably was already on it's last legs.

Here is an interesting report I just read!

Repair or replace your appliances?

When to pull the plug on your old freezer

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model ?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your ,freezer
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.


If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that freezer under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.


If your freezer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.


The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new freezer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive freezer
six or more years old .

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a freezer you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Won't get cold enough


welcome mvernon6

How old is your Freezer ?
Make and Model
This can be anyone of a host of problems,
1. Thermostat bad
2.Freon coolant low
3. Coolant leak.
4.Are the coils on the bottom of the freezer behind the grille or in the rear of the box?
These are the narrow black tubes that run parallel to each other, back and forth.
They carry the coolant to and from the compressor!
If they are under the freezer, then they may be covered with years of dust and lint and in need of a refrigerator brush down there to gently clean the stuff out!
Air needs to pass over them as the fan sucks it in through the front grille to cool them off.
The brush is $8-$10 at the hard ware store.
I hope my suggestions help.
Let me know how it goes.
Bless You Huuum

Freezer door left open


Hello Captain rose,
Did you turn off the freezer and then pull the plug?
Try this again. Turn off the freezer then pull the plug for 4 minutes, plug it back in and turn it on.
Do you hear the compressor turn on?
It should only take 24 hours max. to get back to full temperature!
If this does not help and you hear no compressor, especially if it is an old freezer .
They may have burned out the old compressor by causing it to work 2 hours straight .
Rather than cycling off and on every half hour or so!
If it was an old freezer, so it means it was on its last legs and would have happened some time soon any way!

Here is an article I read abut the age of refrigerators and freezers.
