Question about Electrolux 3.53 cu. ft. / 100 liter Upright Freezer EUU6174

1 Answer

Its not freezing!! keeping things cool, but not freezing

My electrolux upright freezer EUU6174 is not freezing. There is power, it is managing to stay 'cool' but not freezing food stuffs. There is a red warning light on the front panel, which I believe is just to inform you that the temperature is not cold enough to store food. I have 'trouble-shot' as in cleaned the air intake, defrosted it, bu the problem remains unsolved. Is there a possible thermostat problem/ fan problem or will I need a new one?? Pete

I would definitely start by checking if the fan is working. Note that the fan is switched off when you open the door, so you need to press the door switch and then check if it is working. If not, that will be the problem.

The top two shelves are not freezing and the food on those shelves and that area of the door have defrosted. The bottom seems to be freezing. I can hear the fan running and do not feel any drafts from


Obviously that freezer is not achieved the required temperature. There are several reasons for that:
- Defrosting system is not working, which leads to accumulation too much ice on the evaporator that prevents heat transfer and reduces air circulation despite the fan is running.
- The problem with draining condensate after defrosting cycle which also leads to accumulation of ice.
- Leaking gas from the cooling system (reduced cooling capacity)
- Faulty compressor

My Electolux freezer freezes things at the top but not lower down, why? Also the top has a huge and rapid build up of ice crystals.


Sounds like you have lost some of the refrigerant charge. when this happens the cooling coils only freeze partway and the unit runs most of the time due to lost capacity.

Hi there. I have Electrolux freezer EUU 6174. The problem is that the compressor is switching on and off for 5 seconds and the temperature is to hight. I can't store any food in the freezer. can u help me?


your problem is likely the starting capacitor .. that is a metalic part (about the size of a fist) that is mounted on the compressor or near it .. it will have wires going to the compressor .. the capacitors are not very expensive and usually easy to change but make sure the unit is unplugged .. you can either write the numbers down off the capacitor or remove it and take it with you to a parts place to get a match ... take a photo or draw a diagram so you know where the wires go .(they usually just plug in) . .. you can order one from electrolux (might be higher price) .. dont allow the unit to continue running with the bad starting cap since the compressor can be damaged eventually ... if you call a repairman .. then make sure you tell him its a bad starting cap so he can bring one wiith him and avoild a second trip .. give him the model number and numbers off the capacitor if you can ... often the capacitor is actually two capacitors in one can ... one is for the compressor and the other is hooked up to the fan ... in that case replacing one would also replace the other ..

How to recharge freezer electrolux FFH17FC7CW0


HI, It is a big job to recharge a unit. If it need recharged, it means there is a leak. Do you have any cooling at all? If this a self defrosting freezer? If it is self defrosting, make sure there isn't any frost building up on the evaporator panel.
