Question about Frigidaire 12 cu. ft. / 340 liter Upright Freezer FFU12C2A

Open Question

How do I embarrass sears for making this junk called a frostless

Tell me why buy American made sub standard junk that is hardly more than poorly engineered trash? Maybe we should replace them with something Chinese? Let's face it I am not the only one that is fed up with this kind of treatment. They sell you this piece of #^&*# then expect you to pay full price, support the American retailer while taking it in the Shorts! Oh yeah don't forget take off from work and wait all day for a service man that you know is struggling to put this piece of %$#@ back together. Why does every one seem to be complaining about the same thing on this Kenmore Frostless Freezer if I didn't know better I'd think these people lived in my house

    i understand your upset , please hear me out . i work on appliances every day . the falt is not sears . the problem comes from more than a few levels .... first , for years (around 40 ) the amercan people did not want there appliances to last , the second hand stores ,newspapers , and the city dump where full of working appliances that just did not match the owners new kitchen . so why make them so good . then theres the "allways low prices " problem in 1980 a uprite freezer costs 500.00 today it still costs 500.00 it should cost 1200.00 but you say i would not pay that . so the mfgr has to make a freezer that can be sold for 500.00 how do you think that happens ? you end up with junk , just what you wanted ! now the govt gets involved and says it uses to much electric , it costs money to make it green , but it has to sell for 500.00 or nobody will buy it . now it has to be made even cheeper stuff .....every day i rip out wonderfull appliances made in the 50s.60s,70s and install total trash and 6 months i am back to fix there new junk . one lady i asked after i had to go back for the 3rd time " ARE YOU SORRY YOU GAVE UP YOU OLD FRIDGE ? " SHE SAID NO ! this one looks so much better and i got such a great deal on it .......people get what thay want , the makers and sellers are just reacting to the WANTS .

SOURCE: food thawing in freezer

You may have a small leak in the evaporator. You could try to get a replacement freon with stop leak from the automotive store and give it a shot. If it is a R12 unit then it is too old to repair. But it is worth the gamble to shoot it with freeze 12 or an equivilent before you condemn it.

Difficult call there as whirlpool has a strange manor especially with the larger units. I had a callout on a double door whirlpool unit once and the compressor wouldn't come on but i couldn't find anything wrong. Anyway, i decided to leave the fridge untl the next day giving it a chance to possibly come on. About 5 hours later the customer called and said unit running very well and no more problems. Basically leave on for a few hours and see. If no output then call a tech .The testing procedures need equipment and electrical info..

Just got this freezer and it has been pluged in since 2pm yesterday. It is still at 50 degrees. How long does it take for a freezer to start freezing ?


Within 2 to 4 hours after initial power on.

Call Sears and tell them you want it exchanged not repaired,that is if it is new and under warranty.
Make sure the thermostat is set at about the mid setting of the adjustment range!
Good Luck !

Sears Coldspot 17 frostless freezer not defrosting


One reason for the fan running is that it is trying to distribute the air in the compartment. Look at the very rear of the freezer on the bottom and see if the little vents, which allow water to disperse, are not filled with frozen ice. If so, turn off the fridge (unplug it) and use a hair dryer to melt that ice until it is all gone. That will probably fill the condensation pan under the unit and you'll need to empty it.

Not sure which freezer to buy?


If you want a manual defrost model they are all almost the same.
Manuel defrost is very simple, just compressor and thermostat. No fans or defrost system. The true indication of quality is the energy star rating. Look at the operating cost. The better made ones cost less to operate. Just shop by price and features you want. High temp warning, rapid freeze etc. Normally I would stay clear of the White/Westinghouse garbage(Gibson,Kelvinator, Frigidaire, etc.) in washers and dryers but in refrigeration they aren't too bad. It is really hard to tell anymore who actually makes what. They all seem to be buying each other out. GE sold out and doesn't make their own anymore, Whirlpool bought out Maytag, Jenn air, and Amana. Kenmore/Sears is mostly made by Whirlpool. I have trouble telling things apart anymore.
