Question about Magic Chef Freezer. 8.8 cu. ft. Upright Freezer in White MCUF88W

Open Question

My freezer does not work. It chips out and doesn't allow freezing

The freezer was recently cleaned. It was working o.k. until recently. The freezer does not give any indication that it is working. The food outside of the meet section seem to be melting, but the meet is still very hard ( frozen). The freezer tries to work but makes a 'chin-in' sound and immediately stops. It doesn't seem to be working at all. So, what could be the problem?

I recently bought a norfrost chest freezer model c6aew,the freezer did not come with a manual or guide.i switched on the freezer set the dial to seven waited 24hrs and put some food into the freezer to...


Can't help I'm afraid, but we have exactly the same problem with exactly the same model. Ours did work for nearly 2 years, but recently only works with the boost button pressed in. I suspect the thermostat is not working as the boost button over-rides the thermostat to give max cooling. Your freezer is new so get it exchanged; it certainly doesn't need to be full to work!

Belling freezer wont freeze, red light remains on all time. Turned on and off, adjusted temperature setting, cleaned but nothing makes any difference. Can hear pump working but does not cool.


Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
and PLEASE give a Thumbs Up for the effort. The Raz Shack

Frigidaire FP120V Fridge is too warm, yet freezes in crisper


There may be vents that need to be closed and or opened a little for proper adjustment.

Chest Freezer not freezing


check the temp dial. and set to a lower temp. *be mindful of the surrounding temp of the freezer. it will not work properly if it is in 125 degree surrounding air. * check the coils on the freezer and make sure that they are clean. this allows for proper heat transfer from the inside of the box to the outside air. also check to see if the blower is running. * Check to see if there are signs of oil around the freezer, if so contact a service tech

Refrigerator works but freezer does not freeze.The compressor works and I've cleaned the entire works area of dust.


There is two kind of condenser: one called condenser with forced air flow and condenser with natural air flow!!!
Your freezer have the condenser with natural air flow. . One mistake which people do is that they don't really know how to install the refrigerator or freezers. What distance to the wall which they can respect. This distance is what we call the ventillation distance which allow the natural air or forced air to flow and cool down the compressor and the condenser.
That mean , remove immediately your freezer to 1 foot from the wall. unplug 15 mins and plug again it will work very good.
Enjoy

Won't freeze after door was left open


Having the door open has introduced an excess of humidity and therefore condensate/ice into the freezer coils. The coils are therefore iced over. You have choices depending upon your skill level. You might: allow the unit to sit unplugged with the door open until the excess ice thaws out and wets the floor underneath, which may take from 6 to 24 hours. You might: do this, adding some heat source in the freezer to accelerate the process. You might: locate the defrot timer, advancing the timer until a click is heard indicating the unit is in defrost, and repeat after about 15 minutes to defrost the unit with it's own heater. You might: let it recover just as it is but it will take a couple of days to clear itself.

Freezer is in garage and has worked up until now. Still runs, makes a humming sound and is cold but not freezing. Food is thawing.

If it is below freezing in your garage the freezer will not work.
No freezer except one Frigidaire freezer will work in the extreme cold.
This one has a button to switch it to a refrigerator in the winter and a freezer in the summer.

Used freezer won't freeze food


If the compressor is running and it still doesn't cool, it is probably leaking freon. If this is a frostless model there are other minor things that can go wrong. This usually shows up on a freezer that has recently been moved or hasn't been used for a time. This is almost never worth fixing as even if you fix it you can't ever completely trust it again. The food inside is usually worth far more than the freezer and most homeowners insurance doesn't cover it anyway.
