SOURCE: Freezer will Not Go Below 8 degrees and Alarm keeps sounding

Our manual says it can take our freezer up to 48 hours to get back to the correct temperature. I found that to be the case when we loaded it fully for the first time.

SOURCE: temp -35 degrees,freezer runs all the time

I assume there is no manual control for setting temp. so the thermal sensor or control circuit has failed and it is just staying at its maximum.  You will probably get more help from the manufacturer but their website is somewhat disjointed; looking for contact info for your product ends at one point and then shifts to their scientific product line.
The only general contact info I found is here:
Nor-Lake 
You will in any case need to have the correct model number at hand since the subject line doesn't sound like your freezer.

SOURCE: not cold enough. ice on back of freezer but not making cubes

sounds like you might have a deforst problem or your drain is blocked not allowing the water to drain when the fridge goes into defrost.

SOURCE: freezer temp doesn't go below 20 degrees

Hi,
As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer2_bing.gif and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

What does the temp display on the freezer tell me?


unless this is a dedicated freezer only and not a side by side or over/under , there's no way it's going to get down too 0 degrees inside a warm home , nope not gonna happen

also its not good for you to set this there as compressor wont cycle properly there and entire freezer will ice up , then believe it or not it will get warmer not colder wastes a lot of power as well

Our Kenmore 253.28432801 is just over 5 years old. It stopped freezing, and the Sears tech says it has a leak and needs coils and a condenser. This would be $618, he suggested we buy a new freezer. Co


If it's holding at 28 degrees, it's not the coils. See if dropping the temp does any thing to lower the temp. If it does, fine. If not, most likely just the control needs replaced or just cleaned.

It seems that the temp more often goes up to 20-30's and that food is not as frozen when I check it. When temp goes up I check it for next couple of minutes and usually within 10 min the temp is back down...


This is normal. All commercfial freezers must defrost 3 to 5 times a day, or they will freeze over at the coil and then stop freezing. A timer in your freezer turns off the compressor and turns a heating element on for 10 to 15 minutes. During that time the coil heats and melts frost from the coil. Usually within 30 minutes the temperature will briefly rise to 20 t0 25 degrees F and then quickly drop down to 0 degrees F. The food rarely defrosts in this short period of time..

these freezer are designed to run about 70 percent of the time the temp displayed can vary by +/- 3 degrees..make sure you have fan operation in the freezer and the air flow is not blocked or restricted. also make sure that the door is sealing properly

We have bought a new american style fridge/freezer and it was delivered yesterday. We have left it on for 24 hours and the temperature is not going down the fridge wont go below 12 degrees and the freezer...


ambient temp 10/35 degrees C.not in direct sunlight,
did you use a level to make sure that it is level in all planes,just to make sure all the door seals are tight,
(look along the seals to make sure)the unit should be left on for at least 24 hours in its chosen position with the doors shut,then check temp,it could take another 12 hours to settle down once loaded.Also make sure that its not touching the wall cuts down on vibration.
once checked,if still not right call samsung..they are good.

Freezer temperature does not get below 10 degrees


this is something you can do now. Check this 1st:
make sure that the air vents are not blocked and that you didnt overload the freezer with food

there can be other things that will not bring the temp. below 10 (that temp. is not too bad as long as it doesnt spoil the food)
here are the possiblities:
t'stat is set too low
t'stat is not responding to zero degrees (all that means is it is shuting off the compressor too soon to reach zero)
dirty condenser
r-134a freon is a tad low (only takes like 9 oz. if lose 1 or 2 that is enough to affect performance)
the freon is the last thing to check cuase you have to call someone to do that for you...

Well hope this was helpful... check the temp often watch to see if it gets above 20 degrees cause that will spoil you food..

Freezer due to brown out then power restored now low temp alarm


The light should reset itself when the freezer gets to less then 18 degrees. If it is still above 18 degrees it will stay on. Now if it is cooler then 18 degrees then unplug the unit for 1 minute and plug it back in once you are sure that it is below 18 degrees. But do not rule out the thermostat. It could have blown out when the brownout happened. To test it jump the wires together and see if the freezer comes on and goes off

Top mounted freezer on refrigerator not working


Move the refrigerator to a room that is at least 50 degrees F.

Temps on most refrigerators are regulated by the fresh foods temp. If your garage is let's say 35 degrees, the fresh foods temp will most likely never raise enough to turn the refrigerator on. With the refrigerator never running, the freezer compartment will warm to 35 degrees, resulting in everything melting. Even if garage is a bit warmer, say 45, the refrig will not run long enough for the freezer to maintain a low enough temperture. If the garage temp falls to below freezing, say 20 degrees, the food in the fresh foods compartment will freeze. (outdoor beverage dispensers have internal heaters to prevent product from freezing !) Please don't rate this if not a Fix-Ya for you, as anything else lowers my score.

Kenmore 23.1 cf Chest Freezer not cooling below 14F


Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.
