FRS20WNF is not freezing food - 333a4d83-f0ca-4b1c-ad9f-1270c26109cc.jpgUnplug and quickly remove the rear panel inside the back of the freezer compartment. I want you to see what type of frost pattern is there. If the frost pattern has only a few rows of the evaporator covered in frost this would indicate a Freon leak. Here is a photo of a refrigerator with a Freon leak HERE Here is one that has a defrost problem HERE If this is only a defrost problem I want you to remove the kickplate at the bottom fron near floor. Turn the defrost timer slowly clockwise until the compressor and fans stop running. Leave the refrigerator like this for up to thirty five minutes. This is forcing defrost and if doing this causes the ice to melt in the freezer and then the refrigerator begins to cool normally I want you to relpace the 215846602 Defrost Timer
and if the timer does not restart the fans and compressor after 35 minutes simply turn the timer slowly clockwise again until it does restart on its own. Let me know what happens so I can guide through more steps to solve this problem should the 218657301 Defrost Heater Assembly be burned out. I am here should you have questions or comments, Thanks Sea Breeze

My freezer has a different code number;ZFT710FW.I put quite a lot of food into the freezer yesterday and the alarm now keeps sounding,I have put the temperature up but the red light is still flashing...


Red Alarm Indicator Light
Under normal operating conditions, the internal temperature of the freezer will ensure the long-term conservation of the stored food. When such temperature rises above a certain level (-12 °C), the appliance will trigger an acoustic and light alarm. The light alarm is a blink red light (Red Alarm Indicator Light), while the acoustic alarm is an intermittent sound.
You can stop the acoustic alarm by pressing the Acoustic Signal Stop Switch once.

When switching on the freezer for the first time, the Red Alarm Indicator Light will blink until the internal temperature has reached a level required for the safe conservation of frozen food.

Fast Freeze function
If more than 3-4 kg of food is to be frozen:
1. Press the Fast Freeze Switch for 2-3 seconds to activate the fast-freeze function 6-24 hours before placing the fresh food in the freezer, the Yellow Fast Freeze Indicator Light will illuminate. The compressor will now run continuously, to ensure that the fresh food is frozen as quickly as possible.
2. It is possible to deactivate the function at any time by pressing the Fast Freeze Switch for 2-3 seconds.
3. Place the foods in the freezing compartments (indicated with graphics).
4. Once the food is completely frozen (it may take up to 24 hours) you can manually switch off the fastfreeze function by pressing the Fast Freeze Switch for 2- 3 seconds and the Yellow Fast Freeze Indicator light will also go out.
5. Move frozen food from the freezing compartments into the other compartments (storing compartments) to make room for another freezing.

If the Fast Freeze Switch is accidentally left on, the fast-freeze function will be automatically switched off 48 hours later. The Yellow Fast Freeze Indicator light will also go out.

I believe that you all understand. If you intend to freeze larger amount of food then certainly a few hours before some shopping switch on the fast freeze function.

What are the advantages of freeze dried fish food over fresh food?


Some people prefer freeze dried fish food over fresh as it's easier to keep and a bit less revolting to handle. The freeze dried food kills parasites and preserves natural flavors and nutrients for a long period of time. But some fish prefer their food to be fresh, so it really depends on your fish.

Is there a difference between freeze-dried and dehydrated food?


Yes there is, in freeze-drying process they use a cold temperature and in dehydrated food they use warm temperature. In the freeze-frying process the fresh foods are frozen first then the moisture removed in a vacuum chamber and since the food remains frozen during the process, the food's cell structure don't change.

What is the difference between freeze-dried and dehydrated food?


Freeze-dried food is quickly frozen and placed in a strong vacuum. This process uses low heat and causes less harm to the tissue, taste and smell of the food. To dehydrate food, heat is applied and moisture is removed through the process of evaporation. This is a low cost method in comparison to freeze-drying.
