SOURCE: evap fan will not come on,jumped out the fan control fan comes on

Since this is a freezer, it should have a defrost terminator/ fan delay. This could have gone bad or you may have a refrigeration problem. Such as low on freon due to a leak. Need more info, I'll explain in detail. Let me know. Will Be more than happy to.

these units are designed to run approx 85 percent of the time,they maintain temp rather than letting it get to a higher temp and then try to cool it down.they use a lot less energy to run the way they do long running times are normal

SOURCE: I have a Artic Air

Is the freezer itself getting cold.To blow cold air.the freezer should get cold/friezed.the cold air blows from freezer to fridge side.first the freezer side gets cold, then when the freezer side gets enough cool to its set cooling temperature, at that time the defrost cycle starts.In defrost cycle the fan in the freezer starts running and the cool air from freezer starts going to fridge side.There is a ventilation passage between fridge and freezer from where this cool air passes.---------------- If in your case, the freezer is getting proper cold, but its not blowing cold air from freezer to fridge, then possibility is that, there is a blockage in ventilations.But if ventilation its clear, then its defrost problem.First try manual defrost reset procedure. The procedure is as follows: ---- First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again. Then its defrost board problem. ------------------------- BUT if in your case, the freezer section itself is not getting cold, then the problem is compressor related.The compressor is the part which cools the freezer frost.In the compressor, there is a refrigerant to cool the freezer.If the compressor gets weak or the refrigerant gets low, then it will not cool the freezer, if the freezer is not cool then it will blow warm air from freezer to fridge, in defrost cycle.In that case, the compressor is faulty and its the cause of problem.------------ So you will have to first check , that is your freezer getting cold or not.as per that you can start the troubleshooting.------------------

You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site. --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

    SOURCE: I have a Frigidaire upright freezer. Power coming into freezer. Light inside works, and the temp setting on the door works. Not getting any power through the system to the compressor.

    Contact a professional. The power supply source needs to be testing to the compressor and see if the power is fine, or if the compressor is faulty and not drawing needed power.

    My artic freezer f22cwf4 compressor is not turning on. I have replaced the thermostat and all the fans are working. The unit is only 6 years old.


    Not an expert opinion but seems that either you have low refrigerant and maybe the compressor is not therefore starting or the compressor has an issue, or the power to the compressor is missing.

    Green light wont come on


    Is unit running? Orange switch - is that the fast freeze switch? If on and running, green light faulty. If nothing happening, start with fuse, test the switch and make sure power is to the thermostat.

    Possibly the temperature sensor is faulty(out of spec.) and it will cause that problem or the display unit is faulty. Suggest you replace both if you decide to replace the display.

    Freezer not cold. Can't get to coils to see if they are frozen.


    Hi grammycather, thank you for allowing me to assist you. Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve this issue:

    First check clearances around your freezer. There must be adequate space around a freezer with a static condenser so that air can circulate properly. Proper clearances include 1" at the back and 3" on top of the unit.

    Examine your doors. If the doors have been opened too often or for too long, this may have allowed warm air to enter the appliance. Make sure to shut the door completely and be sure not to keep the door open for too long. Even leaving a door slightly open can allow too much warm air intake. Make sure freezer is level and keep food and containers from blocking the door closing.

    Check the door seal. You do this by placing a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet, double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything that may be stopping it from closing. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then refer to a tech to replace the gasket.

    Check to see if the condenser is dirty. A dirty condenser cannot release heat efficiently into the surrounding air. Cleaning the condenser may be necessary, more if you have animals in the house. If you have condenser coils, they should be wiped occasionally with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust. The condenser coils should be wiped occasionally with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust.

    Check for any obstructions to the vent to ensure proper air flow. If the vent is blocked, the air in the freezer will not get cool.

    I suggest to double check the freezer control. If the freezer control is set too warm, set freezer control to a colder setting and allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize.

    If these assessment measures prove to be ineffective, I would strongly suggest contacting an authorized service technician who would be better able to assist you in the diagnosis and repair of your unit. You can often locate an experienced technician in your area by going to the manufacturer website.

    How to test a frigidaire Freezer electronic control circuit board p/n 451704000


    You can try reseating the controller. UNPLUG THE FREEZER FROM THE ELECTRICAL OUTLET. Get a wide putty knife and insert it between the door and the controller bezel on the right side of the controller. Pry the controller out toward the top first (comes out easily) by twisting the putty knife handle so the top of the controller pops out and then grab the controller toward the bottom and pull it out as straight as you can. Get some dielectric grease and put it on the pins at the bottom on the back of the controller you removed from the door. Alternately, you could put wd40 on a cotton cloth and wipe the contacts. Make sure not the leave any debris on the pins other than a little bit of grease or wd40. Insert the controller back into the door and plug the freezer electrical cord back into the outlet.

    I had some problems with the line voltage coming in my house. For a while the lights would flicker. I believe that this was a contributor to the problems I had with my freezer, which have lasted about five months now. I would intermittently find that the display was all lit up or that the led number segments would be dark, but a little red led was lit. Simply unplugging and replugging at the electrical outlet seemed to do the trick. Finally it seemed like it completely malfunctioned, not restarting after unplugging and replugging. Just dead. I finally pulled off the controller and put the dielectric grease on the pins and then whalla, it came on again without issue...well for 15 minutes so far.

    I had a feeling that the issue was the controller all along because the freezer itself never seemed to have any problem getting cold or setting the temp, just this problem of shutting down every so often (2-5 times a week). I'll post back again with an update.

    My freezer has condensation inside


    Hi - From what you have described it sounds like the freezer has a poor door seal. When cold air and warm air outside is entering it causes condensation. Try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then I suggest contacting your manufacturer and see who they recommend to repair the unit.

    My freezer has power, but the fans are not going on when the door shuts and the temperature is rising.


    The defrost termination/ fan delay control is a temperature-activated, single pole-double throw switch. ).
    The control is wired into the refrigeration circuit. The control is located high on the evaporator where the frost is likely to clear last. The function of this temperature-activated switch is to terminate defrost when the evaporator coil has been defrosted, and to delay the evaporator fans from coming on immediately after defrost.
    The coil must reach a temperature of 25* F. for the fan delay to close allowing the fans to operate.bobicehouse_38.jpg
